The Justice in Policing Act is already watered down. Substantive justice reform means fully ENDING
—qualified immunity (the bill doesn’t)
—civil asset forfeiture
—the drug war
—victimless crimes
—no-knock warrants
—militarization of police
—mandatory minimums
—the death penalty

@wjmaggos

Can't agree about ending mandatory minimums, that leaves too much room for special treatment, incompatible with "equal before the law".

@Viking

I'm still confused about what qualified immunity really is.

@Viking

my understanding is that it also includes cops (and other civil service folk) doing things like low level property damage while trying to save lives.

@wjmaggos Why do you believe anyone who matters gives a fuck about "substantive justice reform"?

@Leyonhjelm

politics shouldn't be about what "they" believe. it's about figuring out what we believe and making "the system" respond accordingly. we'd rather not do that work though.

@wjmaggos What you said is a meaningless response with regards what I said.

@Leyonhjelm

you're a pedantic fuck who keeps assuming bad faith in conversations with me, but to address your point and avoid saying anything off subject...

I do not believe anyone who matters gives a fuck about "substantive justice reform".

@wjmaggos

So 50% ad hominem, 50% admitting I am correct. I can live with that.
