Police misconduct: Discipline records for thousands of cops uncovered

quote [ At least 85,000 law enforcement officers across the USA have been investigated or disciplined for misconduct over the past decade, an investigation by USA TODAY Network found.

Officers have beaten members of the public, planted evidence and used their badges to harass women. They have lied, stolen, dealt drugs, driven drunk and abused their spouses. ]

notice how california is absent from that list?

it's not a mistake. police union here actively fights against any changes to recording this kind of shit and making it public.

California is the blueprint for the police state wanted by our government.

has the most cops, and our projections say we are still understaffed by over 1000 officers.

Is this something I should be adding to my list of reasons for disliking Kamala Harris?

during her time she worked to record statistics regarding officer involved shootings.

however, her office also worked to keep all the information from being released to the public.

she also has the SF crime lab scandal working against her.

textbook example of why we should revolt and smash both the extreme right and 2 of the 3 versions of the "progressive" left.
