An open letter to the U.S. Congress

End Qualified Immunity for Cops

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Sens. Merkley and Wyden, Rep. Bonamici, I am writing to voice my support for any and all legislation that ends qualified immunity for law enforcement officers. Officers should be held accountable for their actions. It is corrosive to our society that those who uphold and enforce the law seem to be above it. Following that, disarm the police. Following that dissolve the unions. Following that, form a task force within the FBI that investigates corruption within local departments. Following that, create a nationwide database of all police and criminal (and criminal police) activities that every precinct and department in this country uses, and digitize existing cases. We know a more militarized police force is a more violent police force. We know the racist roots of policing run deep. We know the unions prevent justice and stifle reform. Drastic change is needed. Make that change. Do it now.
