    In honor of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, I am urging the Manhattan Beach Police Department to adopt the eight research-backed use of force policies known collectively as Eight Can't Wait. These research-backed polices have been shown to reduce killings by police and save lives. Reducing our dependence on militarized law enforcement and punitive incarceration is both morally and fiscally responsible. More information is available at 8cantwait.org.

    Defend, don’t defund.
    MBPD has the heroic task of keeping our oasis safe. We need police more than ever to protect life and property. To continue to assert our police are the problem, is a smear of the highest order, unfortunately an expected smear. This comes amidst calls to “defund the police” right here in Manhattan Beach. We have to start taking these calls seriously and can't take MBPD for granted. We have to protect their name, their reputation, and their ability to do their jobs.
