Nunez & Solorio – partners in hypocrisy

The California Progress Report has published a blog article calling on Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez to speak up regarding SB 1019 – the bad cop bill. The article is written by Mark Schlosberg, the American Civil Liberties Union Northern California (ACLU-NC) Police Practices Policy Director and Kate Kennedy, an ACLU-NC Police Practices Intern on SB 1019.

I normally excerpt other posts, but this one deserves your full attention. Here it is:

The significant and unwarranted force used by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department on May 1, 2007 at MacArthur Park has been widely reported. Demonstrators and members of the media were subjected to baton strikes and rubber bullet shots as police broke up a largely peaceful immigration rally. Unfortunately, the public will never learn which officers committed misconduct and what discipline, if any, they received because of the August 2006 California Supreme Court decision in Copley Press v. Superior Court.
