USA: Stonewalled : Police abuse and misconduct against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the U.S.
Nearly four decades after Stonewall, and despite significant progress in the recognition of human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, the targeting of LGBT individuals for police abuse and misconduct remains a persistent and widespread problem in the US. In this book, Amnesty International documents a serious pattern of police abuse and misconduct including: profiling and discriminatory enforcement of certain laws and ordinances against LGBT people; sexual, physical and verbal abuse, including incidents constituting torture or ill-treatment; and, failure to respond or inappropriate response to "hate crimes" and domestic violence.
