If this law goes into effect, a bystander could face a misdemeanor charge for recording a police officer within 8ft. The right to record police is part of checks and balances. Our laws should protect us, not cops. Join our fight: bit.ly/3RVpDkX nbcnews.to/3Pib0Gu

No one should be criminally prosecuted for attempting to show support for people engaging in the democratic process.
This rule makes it harder for Black, Latinx, and other people of color to vote, many of whom have to wait hours in long lines before casting a ballot. Republicans in the state have done everything they can to make it hard for these communities to vote and we’re fighting back.
⚠️BREAKING⚠️Today, a federal court in Georgia will be hearing motions for a preliminary injunction we have filed against Georgia’s “line relief” provision. This rule criminalizes anyone who provides food or water for people waiting in line to vote.
“I want to also point out that the states that are passing the most restrictive laws around abortion are also the states that are preventing people from voting.” Watch Prof. Khiara Bridges connect the dots between restrictive abortion laws and restrictive voting laws in America.

Orleans DA created a civil rights division to re-examine possible innocence cases, excessive sentences, and past prosecutorial misconduct. To date, about 140 people released through these efforts and none have returned to prison. Undoing past wrongs does not contribute to crime. twitter.com/NBCNews/status…

People who are incarcerated depend on their families to bring the monthly authorized small food package and basic necessities. Packages are a lifeline for survival. @NYSDOCCS and @KathyHochul rescind the vendor-only package policy, today!

Arizona just made it harder to hold police accountable. This doesn’t make anyone safer, it just reinforces the Blue Wall of Silence. This is #HowCopsGetOff apnews.com/article/police…
Incarcerated for nearly four decades, Arthur Longworth is very familiar with the lack of solidity in prison. When his five-year bout in a familiar cell came to an end, Longworth felt like a piece of him was "being torn away." trib.al/24bbFF6

Watch this powerful speech from 13-year-old Naiara Tamminga. She’s right. The cops have shown over and over that their communities can’t trust them. twitter.com/nowthisnews/st…
Cops can kill just by saying that someone was a threat to them. And then because this person was a “threat” and the cop “feared for their life”, their actions will be considered lawful in court. This is how cops get off. Watch the full video, learn more: policefreecommunities.org

Police should not have a "get-out-of-court-free" card. Ending qualified immunity would allow us to hold law enforcement accountable and reimagine their role in our communities. twitter.com/campaigntoendq…

15-year-old Brett Rosenau died after Albuquerque PD set a house on fire using Flashbangs. He wasn't involved in the reason the police were there, yet his death is another example of police disregarding their impact in our communities and neighborhoods. nbcnews.to/3nVBamo
Our laws, our culture, and our institutions continue to protect cops–and not us. Learn more at policefreecommunities.org
Then we have police associations, powerful organizations that act as a shield for cops, continuing to protect their own. The Cleveland Police Union President stated that Officer Loehmann “was not given a fair chance in [Cleveland] and deserves a fair chance in another city.”
And if an officer is terminated as a result of serious misconduct, they are often able to transfer to other police departments. This practice protects cops and can create harm to other communities.
Officer Loehman was cleared of all charges from the murder of Tamir Rice because of the use of force standard. See more about how this works here:
We’re seeing several things at play here with Officer Timothy Loehmann who murdered Tamir Rice being rewarded with another police position in Pennsylvania. fox8.com/news/tamir-ric…
Incarcerated people are forced to use meager wages (if you can call a few cents an hr a wage at all) to pay for overpriced snacks in commissary they need to make up for “savings” generated on abysmal state-provided meals. It’s another form of cost shifting with dire consequences. twitter.com/theappeal/stat…

It’s been said that no one’s above the law. Cops usually are. Cops know how to use the law to protect themselves from prosecution. This means that by saying certain phrases or words, cops know how to beat the system and escape prosecution. Learn more👇🏾�bit.ly/3NKcIyVnOWl.
