    THEY FORGOT TO AD
    1. white police will be screened properly before hire mandatory pass of black history test at local college before hire.,
    2. police officers must call for back up if they stop two people ,no one cop should expect to deal with to assailants , pedestrians or citizens at no time
    3. police must do 200 hr of community service walking on foot through black neighborhoods to get to know the citizens
    4. civil right protest are ok , ever one participating must come to the police dept and get a special permitt for $5 all money from that will go to the victims family for funeral etc .
    5. grand jury will not be summoned for racial tension cases that my result in portest or political uproar, instead a private citizen panel will be ask to make decisions . the police chief or employees can not have family member killed or hurt by citizens . so not to influence a decision on someones fate .
    6 black men will not be asked to stop walking , if no ovious crime is permitted , speculation should not end in death .,
    ultimately all the police already hired need to be demanded to take a civil rights exam give from the files of the naacp . even martin luther king could hardly pass ….. ok
    so who CARES ABOUT NEW LAWS DOWN THERE IF THEY DONT CONTRIBUTE TO PEACE AND RESPECT
