An open letter to the U.S. Congress

[Urgent] Demilitarize the Police | HR 1714

342 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

As a member of the American public, we have found that the police of this nation have ill-gotten military gear, and have used this gear, not to protect, but to oppress, and terrorize, the American people, widely and disproportionately, with prejudice towards minorities, and the otherwise marginalized. — As such, we ask that, if you have not sponsored `HR 1714`, also known as the "Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act", that you do so, post haste. And, if you have already sponsored, that you submit a petition of discharge, so that it may live through the House Armed Services Committee & the Sub-Committee for Readiness. — It is imperative that our nations civil security forces are not only reformed, but rebuilt with the public in mind, and stripping the existing system of its militaristic gear, which has been used carelessly and with ill-intent, is an important first step in this process.
