CALIFORNIA, USA — California lawmakers are taking up a number of sweeping police reforms, including a measure that could strip some officers of their badges. The measures are quickly moving through the state legislature despite strong opposition.
“Since Oscar was murdered over 1,300 Californians have been killed. Only one officer has been convicted,” said Cephus “Uncle Bobby” Johnson who founded California’s Families United for Justice.
Johnson has been pushing for police reform since 2009, when his nephew Oscar grant was shot and killed by a BART police officer.
