Newsom is a dangerous fool - he is endangering the public. California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law restricting law enforcement's use of deadly force Monday, calling for "respect for human life and dignity." Dumb!
The legislation, AB 392, updates the state's guidelines on when police may use deadly force. It requires officers to focus on de-escalation and other techniques, and to resort to deadly force "only when necessary." Under previous guidelines, police officers were allowed to use deadly force "whenever reasonable."
Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, a Democrat who authored the bill, said it will change policing culture in the state. "People of color have often had a different kind of justice than others in the nation," she said at the signing ceremony. "We deserve fairness and justice."
Foolish thinking - all will be hurt.
