Candidate for District 1
Yes, I will ALWAYS support for changes in the law & its a must that police release the records because “we”, the people need to know who we have behind that uniform, (i.e. their behaviors, mental state, write-ups, etc.)
Yes, I wouldn’t just vote for an ordinance, there needs to be legislation passed to eliminate this practice all together. They should not have the “power” to seize anyone’s property “suspected” of illegal activity, innocent until “proven” guilty; furthermore it allows law enforcement to abuse the power they already feel as though they have, not to mention its unconstitutional and a violation of the 5th Amendment.
Yes, this is extremely important because the police make illegal stops everyday, all day, but we as constituents need to get educated on our rights because I truly believe that once we arm & educate ourselves with the law, its strips the police of their imaginary power.
YES, but I do not agree with it being “periodic”, mental health evaluations should be done before they are hired, they should be conducted immediately after an officer has discharged their weapon and it should be done immediately after any confrontations that result in bodily harm.
Yes, absolutely, this is something that is not up for debate, body cameras protect not just “US”, but it protects the police. What is troubling is, those that are against the body cameras do not want the negative actions/behaviors of the police to be documented on record. Their resistence confirms they have something to hide.
Yes, It should be made public, the police department should be transparent, period point blank.
Yes, I will sponsor this legislation without hesitation.
Yes, Operation Safe Street should have never been established, it’s just another way for the justice system to intimidate, harass and discriminate.
Yes, As a matter of fact I am in the process of putting together something similar; but it will not be a board; nonetheless, this is definitely a great idea.
Absolutely not, I will not support any programs coming from the police department, Programs of this type should be created, implemented by the people, for the people.
I will continue to do what I do and that is advocate for fair, decent affordable housing, stronger education curriculum and continuing to build economic and generational wealth and opportunities for minorities/women, the disabled and veterans. There are hidden obstacles put in place to hinder us from accomplishing the two things “we” need to advance as a people.
