We need real Change
People of color need to feel safe with police, but for good reason do not.
This movement for change is powerful. We cannot let govt make this slip away by giving it lip service. We need real verifiable changes.
- All police must have body cams that are always on and it will be a terminatable offence for it not to be in a proper working unobscured state.
- Video needs to be constantly streamed and stored in a secure server that will be subpoenaed in every case involving a death at the hands of the police
- Every death involving police action results in a jury trial regardless of how much the police force wants to look the other way. The fact that it takes political pressure via protests to get this is inexcusable.
- If a police officer can be shown to treat different races differently, a death related to that will be treated like a hate crime with the more severe punishments that entails.
These goals would have decreased the odds that George Floyd would have been killed. The event might still have happened, because some people will always have hate in their hearts, but they must be held accountable and know that there are consequences.
