Yesterday, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) unveiled a new “Racial Justice” platform.
In addition to “[demilitarizing] our police forces so they don’t look and act like invading armies,” implementing “new rules on the allowable use of force,” requiring police forces “reflect the diversity of our communities,” and tying federal police funding to making “progress,” Sanders advocates for establishing a “new model of police training” all together, which grants authority to activists, such as Black Lives Matter protesters:
“At the federal level we need to establish a new model police training program that reorients the way we do law enforcement in this country. With input from a broad segment of the community including activists and leaders from organizations like Black Lives Matter we will reinvent how we police America.”
