Stop The Weaponizing Of Police Against People of Color

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We have had several recent examples of the police being called on people of color for doing mundane things like having a BBQ in the park, selling bottled water on a hot summer day, mowing the lawn, sleeping in their own dorm, moving into their own apartment, waiting at Starbucks for a friend, working out at the gym, etc.  We must stop this criminalization of people of color.  Those guilty of using the police to express their own racism and bigotry should be fined at least $1000 per occurrence and required to take a course in implicit bias and racial profiling.  This will send a message to everyone that calling the police simply because you don't like a particular group of people is a denial of that group's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
