DeSantis Wants to “Protect” the Cops…..from Accountability?

Attorney James Shaw

Gov. DeSantis signed into law a measure to limit the reach of Civilian Review Boards that seek greater transparency and accountability for police misconduct. Does the law really do that, or is it moot as to many FL CRB’s that do not investigate, but merely audit police internal affairs investigations? And what does the new law requiring citizens to remain 25 feet away from a 1st responder mean? Can citizens still videotape police on the street without fear of arrest? Listen to my guests Attorney James Shaw, former Chair of the FL ACLU Legal Panel and Dr. Carolyn Hepburn-Collins, a member of the Tampa CRB discuss these new laws and their effects.
