In light of recent events, the world has been searching for answers to decrease police brutality. Research conducted by the organization Campaign Zero suggests that by enacting 8 regulations, police brutality can decrease in communities by up to 72%. To follow up this research they have started the project #8CantWait to catalogue the implementation of these policies city by city. In Columbus, Ohio only 4 of the 8 regulations are in place. 

The 8 regulations that #8CantWait recommend are:

1) Requirement of deescalation 

2) Ban on chokeholds/strangleholds

3) Duty to intervene  

4) Required warning to shoot

5) Ban on shooting at a moving vehicle

6) Requirement  of comprehensive reporting 

7) Requires exhausting other means before shooting 

8) Has use of force continuum

Currently, Columbus, Ohio only requires deescalation, a ban on chokeholds, a required warning before shooting and a use of force continuum. 

Due to the current injustices that many individuals are facing, especially those within the Black Community, I am demanding that Mayor Andrew Ginther and CPD Police Chief Quinlan implement the other four regulations in order to decrease police brutality in Columbus, Ohio. 

You can find more information about the statistical research, why each regulation is beneficial, what each regulation is and factual evidence of these regulations at 8cantwait.org

I appreciate your support, and hope to encourage further legislation to support the Black Lives Matter movement and to decrease police brutality.
