Crow calls for new strategies to defend individual rights

In a statement on June 1, ASU President Michael M. Crow called on the university's academic communities to outline new efforts, new concepts, and new strategies to devise new models for protecting and defending the rights of individuals; new methods, new concepts, and new tools for policing; models for justice and the law that are, in fact, implementable throughout the process and not only after injustices have occurred.

The statement came on the heels of demonstrations across the country regarding abuse of power and the government's responsibilities to protect individual rights enshrined in our Constitution and articulated by Martin Luther King, Jr. in his "I Have A Dream" speech.
