"Initiative 873 is aiming to amend our laws to make it easier to achieve justice for the victims of bad police shootings. Under the current law, it is nearly impossible to convict an officer involved in a bad shooting, meaning prosecutors rarely, if ever, file charges against police officers. This has led to widespread community distrust of all law enforcement, as well as victims and families never getting the justice they deserve. We need a better balance.

 I-873 will be one step in helping rebuild the working relationship between police and the community that has been so badly damaged in recent years. Passing this reform is critical to helping law enforcement do their jobs." Source; Jerry Savage.

Today I am interviewing Lisa Hayes, the campaign intiator of I-873 to cover her thoughts with our community, police brutality and how we can be effective.
