California lawmakers are making things worse for California residents.
Lawmakers are now trying to ban police officers from using police dogs for arrests and crowd control.
Assemblyman Corey Jackson, one of the bill’s co-authors, said, “The use of police canines has inflicted brutal violence and lifelong trauma on Black Americans and communities of color… This bill marks a turning point in the fight to end this brutality and the inhumane practices and police and the Serving communities builds trust among them.”
Fox News reported:
California law enforcement agencies would be barred from using police K-9s in situations where they might bite someone under a new bill being considered by state lawmakers in an effort to end a “deeply racist and harmful practice.” said the author of the bill.
Assembly members Corey Jackson and Ash Kalra said AB 742 could help end a practice with a troubling history involving the black community and police dogs, they said at a news conference Monday.
According to the text of the bill, law enforcement would be prohibited from using police dogs for apprehension, arrests and crowd control.
“The use of police dogs has inflicted brutal violence and lifelong trauma on black Americans and communities of color,” Jackson said in a statement. “This bill marks a turning point in the fight to end this cruel and inhumane practice and build trust between the police and the communities they serve.”
Many have called for the bill.
Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderrama spoke against the bill saying that “taking away tools like Cooney’s is going to limit their effectiveness.”
The Epoch Times reported:
Ron Cloward, a police dog trainer and president of the Western States Canine Association, told The Epoch Times the bill contained controversial information and false information.
“I’m just tired of people making race an issue,” Cloward said. “It’s not for me and it never has been, and it’s not for most people I know. Don’t use race motivation to go after law enforcement and try to take away another tool.”
Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderrama also spoke out against the bill in a rare public news conference this week.
“We need to give our police officers the tools they need to do their jobs to protect the public,” he said. “Taking away tools like a dog is going to limit their effectiveness.”
This is why so many people are fleeing California!
