Your advocacy mattered, by the way. The problems LED/John Scheft pointed out regarding the severe limitations to the use of force were addressed, mostly, in the conference version because officers and police unions complained to their representatives in the house of representatives. And if the bill would make too many things subject to decertification, the standard of proof the POST would need for a decertification decision is not something cops can complain about: Your department can fire you and an arbitrator or civil service commission can keep you fired if there is a "preponderance of the evidence" (more likely than not) of your misconduct. POST, however, cannot decertify unless there is "clear and convincing" evidence of your misconduct. This odd and rare standard of evidence lies somewhere north of a preponderance but south of proof beyond reasonable doubt. The anti-police crowd must have choked on voting for that part. The Governor has the power to strike out provisions he does not want to become law and I believe he will do that. We will see what is to come today or tomorrow.
