2. Are there similarities/contrasts in police behavior 100 years after the Houston Riot/Camp Logan Mutiny? (For context, compare the Plessy case and the Brown v. Board of Education, Topeka, Kansas, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.)
3. The essay should be 2 1/2-3 pages (EXCLUDING the title page), 12 font, double space, and MLA format.
