Please Help With Police Reform (Evidence-Based Solutions)

64 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

Our country desperately needs police reform. I'm hoping that you'll help push for implementing evidence-based solutions as soon as possible. Per https://t.co/yXlQ9OXEjT (an org endorsed by Barack Obama), these are the most effective changes to make: 1) Require officers to exhaust all alternatives before shooting (lowers police killings by ~25%) 2) Require all use of force be reported (lowers police killings by ~25%) 3) Ban chokeholds and strangleholds (lowers police killings by ~22%) 4) Require use of force continuum (lowers police killings by ~19%) 5) Require de-escalation (lowers police killings by ~15%) 6) Require officers to intervene and stop excessive force (reduces police killings by ~9%) 7) Ban shooting at moving vehicles (reduces police killings by ~8%) 8) Require verbal warning before shooting (reduces police killings by ~5%) I hope that you'll help with this urgent matter!
