With the calls for “police reform” in blue states, some blue cities are not waiting for a federal implementation of police reform. Instead, they are reforming their city’s police departments on their own, with what will likely be disastrous results.
As police reform stalls at the federal level, some blue states are forging ahead with their own law enforcement overhauls. In California, the reforms established procedures for stripping the badges from officers found to have engaged in misconduct by a civilian advisory panel.
The new reforms also expanded a ban on using chokeholds, raised the minimum age for new officers to 21 from 18, and placed restrictions on the use of tear gas and rubber bullets in crowd control situations.
I find it hilarious that Newsom went back to full Stalin right after his recall election.
In Austin, Texas, a combination of staffing shortages and police reform demands from activists resulted in a new policy , which took effect on Friday, that discourages members of the public from calling 911 unless in immediate danger.
Despite what people say, Austin is a shite-hole, so this does not surprise me…
