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
—militarization of police
—the death penalty
Can't agree about ending mandatory minimums, that leaves too much room for special treatment, incompatible with "equal before the law".
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.
And intention and practice differ, this this has resulted in American police exhibiting banana republic behavior.
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.
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".
