They're considering a civilian board to handle complaints against police!!! This is so important!! There's a lot of corruption within the police force so their misconduct often gets swept under the rug when they're the ones handling the complaints. This system is still just an idea, they don't know exactly how it's going to work, but if they can get this to fruition...and if they can start a pattern that will get this sort of thing instituted in other cities...it would be a whole new era for law enforcement with someone to police the police so that they have to treat people fairly!
