Take the Poll: Should Officers Be Financially Responsible for Misconduct?

I just came across a very interesting article on civilbeat.org that suggests that police officers should be held financially liable for their misconduct.

In the recent 4 years, under the leadership and direct orders of Trump, police brutality exposition has skyrocketed. Time and time again we watch in horror as simple encounters with law enforcement end in tragedy, even when suspects are 100% compliant with police orders. Unfortunately Black and brown people are usually the victims.

Protests and rioting have rang out — for sometimes weeks at a time — in several US cities with civilians and law enforcement clashing in the streets — just like the civil rights movement days.

To circumvent this widespread issue of corruption and misconduct, the article suggests that “all officers should be required to carry a supplemental professional liability insurance policy.”

While I do believe that financial liability for misconduct would significantly reduce corruption & misconduct, the trick is proving it. On the other hand, I do not believe that all officers are bad. I have personally encountered very professional & pleasant law enforcement officers but we cannot deny that as with any organization, there are some rotten apples in the bunch. It’s human nature.

I also believe that our police system needs to be heavily reformed, rather than defunded. Proper training & preparation would be a great start.

Sometimes it seems like Black and brown people and the police see each other as the enemy. If that’s the case, it’s definitely time to put the guns down & have meaningful conversation. A truce, per say.

What are your thoughts? Take the poll & let me know!

Business Insider — According to a former real-estate executive who worked for Donald Trump before he took office, Trump once complained to her about seeing a Black construction laborer working on one of his buildings.

I don’t want people thinking Trump Towers are being built by Black people.

Barbara Res also stated that Trump, known for his racist rhetoric also expressed that he didn’t want Black people in his building lobbies.

New Anti-Slavery Resolution to the 13th Amendment Could End Forced Prison Labor

The 13th Amendment states that a person convicted of a crime can be forced to work involuntary as punishment.

Unfortunately, this loophole in the amendment has created a systemic pipeline in which mostly Blacks and brown groups are convicted and imprisoned for even petty crimes & made to perform prison labor which is essentially, re-enslavement.

The new law amendment, spearheaded by Missouri House representative William Lacy Clay, is heavily co-signed by Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) as well as MA & MD senators.
