    Four police officers in the US state of Connecticut have been charged with using race as the primary reason for alleging that people had committed a crime.

    Members of the community say racial profiling issues such as this have created fear for the police.

    The US government has noticed a growth in these types of civil rights violations by police around the country, and is investigating 17 different law enforcement agencies, all in different cities, for the abuses.
