TOTAL ARROGANCE BY POLICE UNION
A 17 year old young unarmed man is killed by a police officer.
The police union decides to have a fundraiser for the officer.
The police union decides to raffle off a gun. A GUN! A gun very similar or the same as the one used to kill the young man.
Total arrogance, insensitivity and a family traumatized further by actions being taken by the police union.

Flaws in consent decree will undermine confidence in police reforms: Letter to the Editor
July 17, 2015 at 3:51 PM
On June 29, we filed an amicus brief concerning flaws in the agreement between the DOJ and the City. Although we support the overall agreement, we believe certain provisions will undermine the intended reforms. The parties have refused to amend the agreement, hence our call upon the judge to use his authority to intercede in the public interest. Here are the key flaws in the agreement:
1) It undermines the inspector general’s independence by forcing the IG to answer to the police chief, whose policies and actions the IG is supposed to critique;
2) It allows the police — rather than an independent investigative agency — to police themselves by investigating their own use of force resulting in death or grievous bodily harm;
3) It fails to require collection of demographic data on complainants to track the “bias-free” policing reforms;
4) It fails to develop youth-focused policies and training to prevent excessive force;
5) It fails to provide the Community Police Commission with the necessary powers, resources, and structure to inspire belief in its effectiveness;
6) It grants the Monitor illegal immunity from ever testifying in court.
If the parties are serious about heeding public input, they will fix these flaws now.
