It has been a devastating time in our nation, as the public lose faith in our law enforcement. We have seen many similar stories as that of George Floyd, but it seems as though nothing happens to the officers who break their oath of "Serve and Protect."

I have watched as peaceful protestors, medics, children, and bystanders are attacked by law enforcement. I have seen the doxxing of undercover officers who agitate the protests into something far worse. How are any of us supposed to believe that the police are supposed to protect us as they commit crimes themselves?

There is only half of our states that allow the public to view police disciplinary records, infractions, and complaints. However, there is no real public "access point" to view this data.

The officer who killed George Floyd had a record of use of force complaints, and if we the people would have had the ability to view these records easily we may have been able to hold the department accountable for continuing the employment of someone who should not have been an officer.

I believe a step in the right direction is to create a database that the public can monitor for misdeeds and ill intentions of those who are supposed to protect our communities.

Our nation was founded on the principle of the people holding the government and those employed by the government accountable. Give us the power and ability to do so.
