According to GQ, “Campaign Zero was formed in 2015 by a group of activists and researchers with the goal of collecting and publicizing police department data and practices in order to understand how to significantly reduce police violence. The research that led to 8 Can’t Wait also began in 2015 with what soon became the Police Use of Force Project—a numbers-driven, reader-friendly examination of the violent tactics that police departments in America’s 100 largest cities employ. The idea is that, if police departments adopt eight reforms of when and how they use force, the ensuing data shows a significant drop in killings—as much as 72% if all eight are followed. The policies are as follows:

-Ban chokeholds and strangleholds

-Require de-escalation

-Require warning before shooting

-Exhaust all other means before shooting

-Duty to intervene and stop excessive force by other officers

-Ban shooting at moving vehicles

-Require use-of-force continuum

-Require comprehensive reporting each time an officer uses forces or threatens to do so”

(Click link above for the rest of the data and the direct ways these policies reduce violence)

Let’s take the first step to implement change in our community by showing our mayor that we DEMAND justice for citizens in our community who were murdered by TPD. Terrence Crutcher. Joshua Barre. Joshua Harvey. So many lives have been lost to this kind of violence, and not one more family deserves to experience this kind of pain. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ OVER THE POLICIES AND TOGETHER WE CAN DEMAND JUSTICE FOR THOSE LIVES LOST AND CHANGE FOR GENERATIONS OF TULSANS MOVING FORWARD.
