GOALS FOR THE PEOPLE
These goals should be implemented in short/long terms. Places that already have this or something similar, we ask that you support those of us that do not:
Know Your Rights Classes specific to your state. I.E. California vs. Texas Gun Laws
Local community based patrols. Make the police “services” obsolete in your community
Documentation of police activity that can later be used as evidence.
Community Review Boards- Establish or implement them with subpoena power with the ability to prosecute.
Tribunal del pueblo- The people’s court where the true peers and equals of the people assaulted can express, and try the offender.

JACKSON, MS - The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi announced today the filing of a civil lawsuit on behalf of a Jackson man who was unconstitutionally arrested and imprisoned after exercising his first amendment right to observe a police interaction in a public parking lot and then asking for the officers' names and badge numbers.
"We do not have secret police in the United States," said Nsombi Lambright, Executive Director of the ACLU of Mississippi. "Observing police in public are fundamental rights, protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Individuals must know that they can exercise this right without fear of arrest."
