Police shootings and other deadly police brutality occur too often, and often the District Attorneys let it slide. These are the DAs many police groups back in elections. The Real Justice PAC supports their opponents. Shaun King shows what we’re up against.

Shaun King sent out this email for the Real Justice PAC. Police groups are donating large sums of money to politicians and candidates running for District Attorney who are soft on police brutality. From the quote below you can see what kind of folks do this voting. Police Lt. Rick Pedrini has since been put on paid leave pending a police board review. Nevertheless, Shaun King is asking everyone to contribute to the Real Justice PAC.  This guy Pedrini is not alone. He was just stupid enough to publish his views. Police brutality will only stop when the police know they will be held to account for it by honest DAs. I’m copying it in its entirety. Please read!

A law enforcement group leader actually wrote this

I want you to take a look at what Arlington Police Lt. Rick Pedrini wrote in the 2018 Massachusetts Police Association (MPA) newsletter:

I am sick and tired of the social justice warriors telling us how to do our jobs. It’s time we forget about ‘restraint’, ‘measured responses’, ‘procedural justice’, ‘de-escalation’, ‘stigma-reduction’, and other feel-good BS that is getting our officers killed. Let’s stop lipsynching, please! Let’s meet violence with violence and get the job done.

You know how I’ve emailed you before about law enforcement groups spending big against our Real Justice candidates running for District Attorney? Well, these are the people I’m talking about. This is who we’re up against.

In one of our recent campaigns for Real Justice, out in Sacramento, California, we tried to defeat a longtime incumbent, Anne Marie Schubert, and elect a champion for real justice in her place. Unfortunately, we came up short — and it’s pretty clear why. The spending against us was ridiculous. $420,000 of Schubert’s campaign funds came from law enforcement groups or people associated with law enforcement, including $200,000 in loans from a former official with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

Worse yet, law enforcement groups donated $13,000 to Schubert’s re-election campaign right after Sacramento police shot and murdered Stephon Clark. And though the shooting happened back in March, Anne Marie Schubert still has yet to bring charges against these police officers.

Now, with that in mind, I want you to read this piece from Arlington Police Lt. Rick Pedrini in the 2018 Massachusetts Police Association (MPA) newsletter one more time:

I am sick and tired of the social justice warriors telling us how to do our jobs. It’s time we forget about ‘restraint’, ‘measured responses’, ‘procedural justice’, ‘de-escalation’, ‘stigma-reduction’, and other feel-good BS that is getting our officers killed. Let’s stop lipsynching, please! Let’s meet violence with violence and get the job done.

It’s gonna take a lot to overcome the influence of these corrupt law enforcement groups. They’re ready to spend big money to defeat us in these crucial District Attorney races, and unless we’re prepared to crowdfund the resources to go up against them, they’re going to keep winning. That’s why I’m asking:

Can you make a contribution of $5 or whatever you can afford to Real Justice today, to help us build up this movement and fight back against corrupt law enforcement groups?

CONTRIBUTE

Until we elect District Attorneys who aren’t bought and paid for by the local law enforcement, we won’t be able to get real justice in cases of police brutality and corruption. I hope I can count on you to step up today, and help us overcome these challenges.

In solidarity,

Shaun King
