Feckless #XavierBecerra blocks bill to stop #killercops

It’s pretty clear that Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra is no friend of the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, or people of color.

On paper he looks good though. Becerra is backing new legislation that would lead to an analysis of police shootings across California.

The measure, Assembly Bill 284 from Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento), authorizes Becerra’s office to examine the circumstances, policies, training and oversight involved in police shootings that resulted in deaths or serious injuries. The attorney general would look at shootings between 2015 and 2016 and issue a report by July 2019.

“We must proactively do what we can to achieve safer outcomes and reduce the likelihood of future incidents,” the attorney general’s office said in a statement.

However the reality is the bill is substantially weaker than the one McCarty had originally proposed, which aimed to expand Becerra’s authority to criminally investigate police shootings.

McCarty’s initial bill passed the Assembly last month, but Becerra and his Police State cronies didn’t like it, so they had it watered down into a do-nothing study bill.

A coalition of civil rights organizations, including chapters of the NAACP and Jewish Federation, plans to protest the bill’s changes.

“They totally gutted the bill,” Moseley said.

AB 284 will take effect only if the Legislature adds money to Becerra’s budget to fund the study. Becerra’s office said a cost analysis of the measure will be done this week and the office would support the funding request.

Enjoy your Police State.

Heh .. go ahead and prosecute the police for doing their jobs and watch the murder and crime rate in kaly start to look even MORE like Chicago than it is now after prop 47 and Jerry releasing 99,000 felons who had their felonies reduced to misdemeanors. reduced to
