Attorney General Kamala Harris Continues to Waste Tax-Payer Funds in self-promotion –legislation to train racist cops!

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA -

SACRAMENTO -Today, t Attorney General Kamala D. Harris office announces that  her,  assembly members Reggie Jones- Sawyer and Rob Bonta have introduced legislation to expand Principled Policing training to law enforcement agencies across the state to address issues of implicit bias and community trust.

The legislation, AB 2626, would require the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) to create and offer a course for peace officers on procedural justice and implicit bias. The new law enforcement training would be modeled on the POST-certified course created by Attorney General Harris last year, the first of its kind in the country.

In addition, AB 2626 would require POST to develop guidelines and trainings enabling peace officers to teach the course to other officers in their agencies. If passed, the bill will require POST to offer the basic principled policing course and the trainer course beginning in June 2017.

The problem with this type of legislation, is that the California government keeps growing an  exponential rate  with  “training/reporting- type of legislation, without any predefined success metrics or lifecycle definition:  In other words, if the legislation works and it is no longer required, it should expire.  If it does not work, then it should alsoi be terminated.

We should stop electing legislators, whose primary motivation is to see their names on pieces of legislation.  Instead, elect problem solvers who understand and can use the Pareto Rule:  That is, for every piece of legislation proposed, four existing laws should be nixed.
