The chief of police will present a program to reform the Pasadena police dept, along with this information: Please fill out a public comment card to speak for 2 minutes because the more commentary from the public, the stronger the community voice.

Chief Sanchez and City Manager Mermell have despite pressure acceded to none of the demands of local police reform activists. It is crucial that we continue to tell our leaders in city government: to immediately demote the officers to desk duty until the conclusion of the investigation, and preferably remove them from the department; to get an independent police auditor to report directly to City Council; and to require an independent investigation of any Use of Force incidents, including Chris Ballew's. The community does not trust the police department to police itself, and the more transparency the better.

“First comply, then complain” is the police department's response to Chris Ballew's beating, as they claim Ballew (and possibly others) did not initially comply, and therefore their savage use of force was justified. Let's call "excessive force" out for what it really is - torture.

Bring your own signs or feel free to print out the one posted in then comments below.

Meeting is on the 2nd floor in Room S249.
