Sanders Calls on Democrats to Embrace 8-Point Plan to End Police Brutality

 

  • Amend federal civil rights laws to allow more effective prosecution of police misconduct by changing the standard from willfulness to recklessness;
  • Abolish “qualified immunity,” so police officers can be held civilly liable for abuses;
  • Prohibit the transfer of offensive military equipment to police departments;
  • Strip federal funds from departments that violate civil rights;
  • Create a federal model policing program that emphasizes de-escalation, non-lethal force and culturally competent policing in which access to federal funds depends upon the level of reform adopted. As part of this effort to modernize and humanize police departments we need to enhance the recruitment pool by ensuring that the resources are available to pay wages that will attract the top-tier officers we need to do the difficult work of policing;
  • Provide funding to states and municipalities to create civilian corps of unarmed first responders to supplement law enforcement, such as social workers, EMTs, and trained mental health professionals, who can handle order maintenance violations, mental health emergencies, and low-level conflicts to aid police officers;
  • Require agencies to make records of police misconduct publicly available;
  • Require all jurisdictions that receive federal grant funding to establish independent police conduct review boards that are broadly representative of the community and that have the authority to refer deaths that occur at the hands of police or in police custody to federal authorities for investigation. In addition, the boards would be authorized to report to federal authorities other types of abuses by police including patterns of misconduct. This would be supplemental to current federal authority to commence investigations. Clearly we need to enhance federal funding for such investigations.

Caught on camera, police explode in rage and violence across the US

 

Things are double-plus ungood in the Reich.

I used to try and give cops the benefit of the doubt.  The job is difficult; there are a lot of assholes in the world to deal with; armed and dangerous population; etc.

But, their response has overwhelmingly been to attack US citizens who are upset about police murdering people in cold blood in broad daylight. They are as bad as any occupying army.

This shit will not stand.

Police Erupt in Violence Nationwide

We found 85,000 cops who’ve been investigated for misconduct
Twenty faced 100 or more allegations yet kept their badge for years.

 

  • Most misconduct involves routine infractions, but the records reveal tens of thousands of cases of serious misconduct and abuse. They include 22,924 investigations of officers using excessive force, 3,145 allegations of rape, child molestation and other sexual misconduct and 2,307 cases of domestic violence by officers.
  • Dishonesty is a frequent problem. The records document at least 2,227 instances of perjury, tampering with evidence or witnesses or falsifying reports. There were 418 reports of officers obstructing investigations, most often when they or someone they knew were targets.

If he wasn’t a veteran cop they would have gotten away with it. This is America today, where cops are violent thugs above the law.
