Latest in a series of posts on the George Floyd killing
Peter Crownfield is officially retired but spends most of his time working with students in his role as internship coordinator for the Alliance for Sustainable Communities–Lehigh Valley.
What I would like to see from the Chief are:
1. A response to the 8 recommendations for use-of-force policies that references where that is addressed in current BPD policies.
2. A similar response for the call to eliminate tear gas, pepper spray, or related compounds (many of which have been shown to have effects lasting for days or weeks and are known to be carcinogens or endocrine-disruptors)
3. A complete copy of BPD policies that control or guide officers’ conduct with respect to use of force.
