Houston Chronicle

HOUSTON — Black community activists, angered by the beating of an African-American juvenile burglary suspect in police custody, called Tuesday for creation of a citizens review panel to combat racial discrimination by Houston police.

NAACP leaders, along with representatives of a nearly a dozen community groups, said the beating of then 15-year-old Chad Holley is the latest example of Houston police officers abusing minorities. Eight officers have been suspended in the incident, which was recorded by a surveillance camera at a nearby storage facility.
