It is time for a National Board of Police Officers like a Board of Nursing...

I use the Nursing Board as their focus is on safe practice of all nurses and protection of the PUBLIC as first line of Standard....they must be Licensed and the Licenses is subject to Board "Actions" if their nursing practice falls below the standard of care as defined by the Nursing Board...

Every US State has a Nursing Board and their is a National Board of Nursing...I believe this standards if equally designed to a Nursing Board can indeed curve this police violence...

I have to go to work now....I can elaborate more if needed...

What say you? We have lots of Nurses here at DU....

1. I don't trust cops to police themselves. They have a history of just the opposite. I think one of

the problems is they hire too ex-military. Not that people who serve are bad people but if they are just coming back from war I think it affects their moral compass.Just look at the "militarization" of the police forces in America - you can barely tell them apart.

We need people that understand that they are SERVING the public and not controlling the public. There should be no reason for citizens to feel nervous when they see a cop. It is so wrong.

2. K&R, and you have multiple facts to back that distrust up.

3. Nothing will change until we remove qualified immunity for cops

and let them know that they can be held personally liable in criminal AND civil courts

Why should they get away with murder, and why should local homeowners and taxpayers have to pay for their misconduct?

4. Police violence is a feature, not a bug, and cannot be fixed through reform.
