Help Stop Police Brutality

I was impressed with the meeting at the Urban League, Plymouth MN; people brought up great solutions, started their own organizations and were serious about this. It was inspiring.

We need your signature, and much more!

The Proposal: The Committee for Professional Policing has worked out a method to hold individual police officers responsible for their own conduct, in a manner similar to doctors, nurses, and other professionals who hold our lives in their hand. Officers would be required to carry liability insurance which would cover conduct that is willful and in violation of the law or police policy. The city could pay the base rate of the insurance premiums, but officers would have to pay any increases in their premiums due to their personal history. Too many claims or other evidence of risk would cost the officer extra, an effective form of discipline. Consistently brutal cops would become uninsurable, and could therefore not continue on the Minneapolis police force.
