The “California Act to Save Lives” provides a clear definition for when peace officers can use deadly force.
New Bill Limits When CaliforniaPolice Can Use Deadly Force February 8, 2019 By: Lizzie Buchen follow @lizziebuchen As a nation, we must address the brutal reality and deadly consequences of police violence. We have seen far too many people, particularly Black and brown people, killed by police. We have seen too many families and communities shattered by loss and tragedy. Enough is enough. We must limit when police officers can use deadly force and take someone’s life.
This year, police deadly force is the hot-button issue in the California State Capitol. The Legislature knows that too many families have been shattered by police violence in California. We know that police should never take a human life when they have alternatives. While this seems like a common-sense standard, it isn’t the current practice in California.
Please Take A Few Minutes To Call The Following Senate Public Safety Committee Members To Urge Them To Oppose SB 230.

The Judge denied the City’s claims that the officers’ and supervisor’s actions had merit. The Judge went on to rebuke the attorneys the City hired to represent it in Court for misrepresentation.
