WASHINGTON, D.C. — Retired Capitol Police Lt. Sharon Blackmon-Malloy sat quietly for more than two hours Tuesday before she was called to testify about diversity in the department.
When she finally got her opportunity to speak, she made herself heard, telling Members that little significant progress has been made to bring minorities and women into the upper ranks of the force.
