I am no lawyer, but as the years go by,the brashness of police in the U.S. seems to get worse. If they are locking away young kids with sentences like 68 years,and 25-life for crimes that don't warrant that type of sentence. i believe it is time that we as citizens push for mandatory sentencing, for police who murder,brutalize,or plant evidence on US citizens. The Gates situation is a catalyst. these cops murder Blacks,Latinos,and all citizens because they have no fear of repercussion. A Chicago cop recently was let off the hook,for beating the crap out of a white women,and it was all caught on tape! I want to open discussion on how to organize,and push for mandatory minimums for police brutality,and murder of US citizens.
