Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) will soon introduce the Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act in Congress—which would end the federal government’s program of providing billions of dollars worth of military equipment to local police. It’s about time. Sign the petition to Congress: No more Fergusons. Pass the Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act.
What the police have done in Ferguson, Missouri is outrageous—and we must ensure that it never happens again. The federal government should not be providing military equipment to local law enforcement agencies to terrorize people. Please support the Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act, and vow to do everything in your power to make it pass.
