I’m trying to find out when it was released but this list of reccommendations BLM wants implemented was released on social media sometime this morning. Go here to read the article that released this list. The actual list is below:
 
  1. End “broken windows” policing, which aggressively polices minor crimes in an attempt to stop larger ones.
  2. Use community oversight for misconduct rather than having the police department decide what consequences officers should face.
  3. Make standards for reporting police use of deadly force.
  4. Independently investigate and prosecute police misconduct.
  5. Have the racial makeup of police departments reflect the communities they serve.
  6. Require officers to wear body cameras.
  7. Provide more training for police officers.
  8. End for-profit policing practices.
  9. End the police use of military equipment.
  10. Implement police union contracts that hold officers accountable for misconduct.

 

…Most who’ve commented on BLM’s “demands” are those who don’t like the group. They have said they view the manifesto as fair points. Would it have helped to have released this three years ago? Yes though I can tell it was probably revised a few times. I will refer back to this blog post in future commentary on the subject. I hope the media picks it up but I will pass it on to FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting) just in case.
