It seems to me that the only way to stop these negligent deaths is to lobby the states to create more jobs, it would be another officer in each
individual unit that responds directly to the governor of each state and has technical rank over even the police chief of his precinct. This officers
job is to respond to each physical altercation or death investigation and determine whether or not he or she believes excessive force or negligence
This would work better because there is less of a blue line, this officer would be mostly a proctor and wouldn't ever really report to the station in
which he or she works at and would only answer to the governor, the mayor of his city, and council investigations.
This officer is elected locally, like a sheriff but is also subject to votes of no confidence whereby with a number of votes lets say 250-500 votes,
at a town hall meeting would be able to start a vote of no confidence that would conclude at the end of that month.
The mayor and town council would also be required to form investigation committees (funded by the state) to keep regular tabs on investigations and
the response of these proctors (the proctors should remain in compliance and good standing as well) and be able to be called to report what they know
at town meetings should there be questions that are able to be answered pertaining to due diligence and special investigations.
This proctor would be responsible for maintaining cameras and surveillance equipment on officers and would regularly retrieve information from
officers cameras and maintain a file on each officer in their unit.
This job would require a minimum of a bachelors degree in criminal justice or law and it would pay no less than 100k + benefits and no more than 350k
+ benefits (Depending on job location)
Will full negligence in the line of duty for this job would come with a mandatory minimum sentence of no less than 20 years in prison with possible
parole after 15 years.
Corruption convictions will result in a mandatory 50 year prison term in general population, with no possibility of parole.
Corruption allegations substantiated but not convicted will result in a 25k dollar fine, vote of no confidence will be held and
benefits will be removed for no less than 1 year.
Obstruction of a proctor in the conduction of an investigation by another police officer will result in a minimum 25 year prison sentence in general
population with no possibility of parole.
Obstruction of a proctor in the conduction of an investigation by a civilian will result in a trial to determine the extent of guilt.
Each proctor would work in pairs, one conducting investigation and the other reporting standards compliance only.
I think if this kind of job existed in every corner of the U.S there would be lots of new successful well paid happy people, making sure we are being
protected, and they do it with our consent.
What do you guys think?
