Michigan’s civil rights watchdog is filing two charges of discrimination against the Grand Rapids Police Department, further heightening scrutiny of the department following an officer’s killing of a Black motorist in April. The charges announced Wednesday came in response to complaints filed with the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. The complaints filed on behalf of two 11-year-old Black boys alleged that police responding to a 911 call held the pair and a 17-year-old boy at gunpoint. The police department did not immediately comment.
