Record the Police

“…The cases of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and Trayvon Martin (and too many others) remind us of the tremendous amount of work and urgency needed to produce a social justice system that is equitable for people of color. Although not a cure-all (as the Garner case taught us), RECORD the POLICE is first a call for the average citizen to enact the responsibility of counter surveillance and the making of evidence. Whenever possible, we must build evidence to engage toward municipal, governmental, and cultural reform. Second, the sticker is a city/state/national plea for the widespread implementation of police dash and body cameras. Last, the sticker contextualizes this plea/imperative as one that is deeply American at its core. Simply put, recording the police is a patriotic act.” Jason Lazarus»»
