California Considering A Law Restricting Police Firearm Use

After the outrage in the Stephon Clark case in Sacramento last month, there may be a HUGE change coming soon. 

California state lawmakers announced a first-of-its-kind bill on Monday that if passed would raise the standard for when officers can open fire.

The proposed legislation would alter California’s use of force laws so that police can open fire ”‘only when necessary’ rather than ‘when reasonable,’” 

“We should no longer be the target practice of a ‘shoot first, ask questions later’ police force,” Assemblyman Christopher Holden (D) said, he then began to speak the names of several other unarmed black victims of police shootings.
