A Three Hour Building Bridges-Housing Notebook Special American Apartheid:                     **How the System of Slavery Still Shapes **Contemporary Policing Policies and Practices*

The birth and development of American policing can be traced to a multitude of historical, legal and political-economic conditions. The institution of slavery, an economic system upon which this nation prospered and grew and the concomitant need to control those who have always sought to control their own bodies and minds and who strove to realize self-determination, however, were two of the more formidable historic features of American society shaping early policing and which continue to influence current policing policies and practices.
Slave Patrols and Night Watches, were to become our modern police departments and are still designed to control people of African descent, as a work force and their yearnings for liberation, to further the interests of the plutocracy. Slavery was the tainted fuel that kindled the fires of U.S. capitalism and made the country grow and which continues to define the nature of and behavior of modern policing of African-American people and their communities.
