June 9, 2020 - The Supreme Court's role in curtailing police misconduct.
But the biggest blockage in the system is the Supreme Court, “says Howard Henderson. "The Supreme Court has the ultimate authority on police power. Unfortunately, the Court, in its current composition, is extremely police-minded and supportive of police misconduct. That limits the possibilities of citizens to assert their rights, because the judgments of the Supreme Court apply de facto as the law. "In the present Henderson considers it composition impossible to hold police officers accountable to force. "As long as one majority of Republican judges is not in the Supreme Court change.’
Howard Henderson calls for one national register of police violence. “There is not a single body today keep complaints or reports about police officers who misbehave. Therefore, it is now sometimes impossible to determine in which police departments problems occur. "He also emphasizes the need for a national reconciliation commission. "The US government has never officially recognized that the excessive violence of police forces is a problem. Such a committee should be the first step to form to come from reconciliation. "
