NO, but police unions should not be protecting police officers who are racist, inhumane, and have numerous complaints.

If a police officer does something blatantly wrong, numerous times, the union shouldn't be protecting them. They should only be protecting them if the officer is innocent.

All I want is for police officers to be honest and doing a quality of service in defense of the safety of everyone. They have a tough job, and should be in a situation where they can do their job without 100% fear of getting fired for making a wrong call.

A third party arbitrator system needs to be establish in order to make sense of situations such as these. Police Unions have too much power in the sense that they are only there to protect officers, not to help the police department get rid of bad officers.

I feel there should be a reform and if an officer shoots a person that should be considered overkill should be arrested and tried like everyone else.
