A gathering for those who want to make a change...
Washington state has the most regressive laws in the United States regarding the use of deadly force by law enforcement officers. Under the current law, it is impossible to prosecute a law enforcement officer in a use of deadly force crime.
I-873 removes these eight words from current code: "without malice and with a good faith belief". It doesn't make it easy to prosecute an officer who shoots someone in a deadly force incident; it only makes it possible.
The deadline for signatures for this initiative is December 30 -- and it currently has very minimal presence in Thurston County. This is a place where we can make a difference.
Come learn about this initiative and how you can help gather signatures --perhaps at events you're already planning on attending.
