What new policies need to be implemented to ensure that police do not cross the line? What will be acceptable to the Union, the city, police dept and public?
I recognize that police are needed. I also understand that the police need to be given the "benefit of the doubt". But....not at the expense of the public. And when i say that...... I mean no police corruption. How do we attain this? How do we calm a "bully" cop? How do we protect the citizen from an overzealous cop? And the same allow police the benefit of the doubt to do their jobs.
What policies would need to be passed? what woud be the penalty for an out of control cop? would cameras move us in the right direction?
Los Angeles holds police officers liable by allowing "victims" to sue in federal court for personal damages in the event they cross the line.
In raising these issue I ask all of you for ideas (realistic) ones that would be fair to everyone.
