BLACK LIVES MATTER GOES AFTER POLICE UNIONS THAT PROTECT KILLERS IN UNIFORM


One of the many reasons that police murderers have been escaping justice has to do with item #10 of Black Lives Matter's Campaign Zero, the protection of police Unions.



Read some of the more outrageous "protections" a police union has put into place

“In Austin, Houston, Louisville, and San Antonio, police union contracts go so far as to require 48-hour notice before an interview with an officer can be conducted, a precaution predicated on the utterly baseless claim that the buffer helps preserve accurate memory.


Before Cleveland’s recent settlement with the Justice Department, the personnel files of its police were wiped clean every two years.”




In addition, Campaign Zero correctly notes that many police union contracts:
  • Mandate paid leave for officers who kill


  • Prevent anonymous complaints from being investigated


  • Restrict the amount of time an officer can be interrogated for misconduct


  • Protect the identities of violent officers from public scrutiny


  • Require cities to pay for misconduct settlements


  • Prevent civilian oversight structures from being able tointerrogate or subpoena officers
