* Chairman of the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable Earl Ofari Hutchinson and Western Regional Director of the National Action Network Rev. Jonathan moseley will hold a press conference on Wednesday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m. at the Black Lives Matter Mural on Jefferson and 10th Ave., LA 90016.
Hutchinson and Moseley will demand that the governor of California Gavin Newsom sign the Police Reform Bill that will prohibit dishonest cops from being employed by other California police departments. Newsom has not said whether he will sign or veto the bill.
“Newsom’s delay in signing the Police Bill sends an absolutely wrong message given the scale of police violence,” Hutchinson and Moseley say. The practice of allowing bad cops to be retrained to other California police departments only increases the risk of police misconduct. “

California remains one of four states with no way to withdraw its officer certification despite nationwide protests over the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis that prompted reform efforts.
The State Assembly on a 46-18 vote approved what has become this legislative session’s marquee criminal justice reform measure, sending a watered-down version back to the Senate for a final vote before the adjournment of the legislature for the year on September 10.
âThis is not an anti-police bill. This is a liability bill. Without any responsibility, we lose the integrity of the badge and the link with the community is severed, âsaid Democratic MP Akilah Weber, who brought the bill to the Assembly.
The amended bill, she said, “provides due process for officers, provides necessary community representation and ensures that good officers are not decertified.”
Law enforcement agencies and those opposed to the bill agreed that the state needed a way to weed out bad officers.
