ACTUAL PETITION
"WE THE PEOPLE would like to petition the united States government to create a law that states that any police officer that turns off his or her body camera during their duty and/or any police officer that knowingly is using a body camera that has malfunctioned but has not reported and fixed the body camera to working order during his or her duty will be punished and fined a minimum of $1000 US dollars and will be placed on non-pay leave for a minimum of 2 weeks. If the offense continues to occur, then the officer may be fired from their position and/or let go of his or her position and/or duties. IF and When a Police Officer is involved with an altercation and/or incident and is needed to provide his or her body camera footage AND is unable to do so regardless of reason, that officer will be fined a minimum of $5000 and placed on a non-paid leave for a minimum of 30 days and that officer may be fired from their position and/or duties and/or may be let go from his or her position and/or duties as a police officer."

WARNING:
The following is very Sad, Very Disappointing and Just Disgusting WHICH IS WHY its time WE THE PEOPLE take a stand against misconduct, brutality and MURDER by the Police.

LETS END POLICE CORRUPTION NOW!  
CHANGE will ONLY COME if and when WE THE PEOPLE ENFORCE IT! 

POLICE OFFICERS SHOULD BE ON CAMERA AT ALL TIMES
NO EXCEPTIONS!!!


After the unjustified killing of, Michael Brown, by the hands of Police Officers,The United States Justice Department Awarded over $23 Million in Funding for Body Worn Camera Pilot Program to Support Law Enforcement Agencies in 32 States! Since then more have opted states and agencies have opted into the program. WHEN turned on and used correctly they document all police interactions with civilians.  
These body cameras are supposed to be worn by police at all times to document all civilian interactions, BUT that is not the case.  

These cameras are BEING TURNED OFF at the police officers will.  At any time the Officer deems it necessary they are being turned off AND/OR are classified as, "Malfunctioned", during the incident.
   
FOR EXAMPLE, on Saturday, July 15th of 2017, one police cruiser containing two police officers were called by a woman complaining of a disturbance.  This is same woman who was killed by one of those SAME Minneapolis police officers.  
THE VERY SAME WOMAN WHO CALLED FOR HELP WAS KILLED BY ONE OF THE OFFICERS!  At some point one of the officers fired a weapon, killing the very woman who called for their help and assistance.

"The officers were wearing body cameras but they were not turned on during the incident", the mayor said.  
The woman that was killed was the woman who called the police for help!

EVEN THOUGH these officers were wearing body cameras, THEY CHOSE NOT to turn them on and use them as required!
This is just ONE, and the most recent, EXAMPLE of many instances and similar outcomes that have occurred in the past   

WHY???   WHY  were these body cameras and other body cameras worn by these and other police officers in similar cases not turned on?  Why do some of these body cameras MYSTERIOUSLY malfunction during the altercation? HOW do The Police get away with NOT USING THEM?  WHY are The Police NOT PUNISHED for not using the body cameras? 

so many questions and yet Murder by Police continues to thrive in this Country.
The police are STILL murdering and killing innocent and unarmed people AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT!!!  

WHY???  Because, The Police are SIMPLY TURNING OFF or NOT USING The cameras SO THE PEOPLE CANNOT SEE THE TRUTH!

We the people keep hearing it each and every day in OUR Country.  Police are Shooting and Killing Innocent, Unarmed, Law Abiding, NON-Violent People in this country EVERY DAY!
BOTH Adults and Children have been victims of MURDER BY POLICE!


Over and over again we read, see or hear the injustice and disappointing fact that police continue to Murder innocent people throughout America without cause and justification AND WITHOUT Consequences for their actions.
Police are getting away with murder because they wear an ounce of tin on their shirts and because no one is holding them accountable for their actions.  

IN FACT, in almost every case, the police officer is acquitted by a jury of his peers. Did you hear that???  DO the research! 
They almost ALWAYS are acquitted by the very people WHO SHOULD be holding them accountable!  
It doesn't make any sense that we the people are under surveillance but the police officers who get to carry deadly weapons and who already have showed all over the United States on many countless times in the past that they abuse their power do not have to be surveyed while acting in the course of their government and tax payer duties.  

We ALL know this to be true but yet,
WE CONTINUE TO DO NOTHING!  

This is why, there should be severe penalties, consequences and punishments for police officers who turn off their body cameras off and/or who choose not to use them.  Police body cameras should be on at all times AND their should be an alert system in effect that will alert someone if the body camera has malfunctioned and/or has been shut off!  WE THE PEOPLE PAY THEIR SALARIES.  We should not allow The Police to commit any more crimes on us and get away with it!  Police should be video documented at all times!  It should be the law!

Please sign this petition so that the following may become law across the country,

"WE THE PEOPLE would like to petition the united States government to create a law that states that any police officer that turns off his or her body camera during their duty and/or any police officer that knowingly is using a body camera that has malfunctioned but has not reported and fixed the body camera to working order during his or her duty will be punished and fined a minimum of $1000 US dollars and will be placed on non-pay leave for a minimum of 2 weeks.  If the offense continues to occur, then the officer may be fired from their position and/or let go of his or her position and/or duties.  IF and When a Police Officer is involved with an altercation and/or incident and is needed to provide his or her body camera footage AND is unable to do so regardless of reason, that officer will be fined a minimum of $5000 and placed on a non-paid leave for a minimum of 30 days and that officer may be fired from their position and/or duties and/or may be let go from his or her position and/or duties as a police officer."  

THIS law is needed to ensure the safety of all United States citizens against Police brutality and corruption and murder and any other crime that may be committed against United States citizens from police officers in the course of their duty.  An alert monitoring system could also be in effect to alert superiors that the body cameras of their officers are not turned on, have been turned off, OR is malfunctioning.  

As a citizen of this great country, i am deeply concerned by police actions and the fact that they are NEVER held accountable for any actions.  


Police are not and should not be immune from prosecution from the crimes they commit.  
A police badge does not grant extra rights, NOR should it grant immunity from crimes they commit!     


Please share this petition as much as possible and encourage people to express their rights at all times!   Thank You For Your Time!
