The Law Enforcement Accountability Act
This a work in progress right now. If enough people show interest and help polish it up, I will consider submitting it as a petition at petitions.whitehouse.gov
In light of the recent events in our nation, we the undersigned request the following action be taken:
1) The FBI review any case involving the death or hospitalization of a suspect due to the actions of Law Enforcement and contact the Department of Justice for further investigation, and if necessary present the case to a Federal Grand Jury.
2) In cases where the DoJ is called in, they will conduct an additional review of local government and departmental policy and procedures, to ensure the investigation was conducted properly, and to take action against any party which hindered the investigation, either by malice or malpractice. If local authorities are suspected of violating the law, the case will be brought to a Federal Grand Jury on obstruction of justice charges.
3) For the DoJ to conduct a review of any department which has a record of violence against suspects based on a metric to be determined by the DoJ, taking population density, and community complaints into account, regardless of whether initial FBI reviews had shown justification, with reviews to be conducted on a bi-annual basis. Any department failing to comply with existing policies and procedures will face penalties and possible criminal prosecution.
4) Any municipality failing to comply with actions 1-3 will be cut from receiving Federal funds for law enforcement until such time as they comply
Constructive insight would be appreciated. Trolls will be mocked and made fun of.
