Alcatel JOY TAB 2
23:45
sounds good, what does the fraternal order of police ,and police union say about this ? Brandy Majors inquires
Christabelle Guevara
25:55
Senate Bill 217 was originally supposed to be called the Elijah McClain policy accountability bill. It was drafted by Terrance Roberts and another person who brought it to law makers in 2019. It gained traction and was accepted by law makers only after George Floyd was murdered.
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
26:42
before your time here the dod was lazed on it's transparency, what tangible garrentee can u assure us that ur willing to do this for the people ?
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
27:10
DPD I want to say
George's Gourmet Pound Cakes
27:57
question: One of the biggest issues I see in not the shooting itself, that the police force is quit to shoot because they have no hand to hand combat training so they shoot first because they just can't take down a criminal with there hands!! Does this bill include monthly training on taken people down!
JESSE PARRIS
28:29
What is the guarantee we have that officers will keep their camera on , I have witnessed numerous times officers turning their cameras off during sweeps and non-violent protests?
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
28:43
what about inside the city and county jails and youth detention center. use if force is never addressed .
Rashad Younger
29:08
Your questions are being noted. Thank you for engaging.
Terrance Roberts
29:36
Aurora already passed an No Knock Ban from my understanding.
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
30:26
when was the last time a no knock warrent excuted in Denver or aurora?
Terrance Roberts
31:53
If Aurora has performed a No Knock Raid in the past two years they are in violation of their own law. There's no guarantee they are not illegally entering homes without proper consent.
Senator Rhonda Fields
32:50
What the policy of shooting while running away?
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
32:56
facts Terrence. don't believe the hype
Sharron Pettiford
33:17
Does this piece of legislation include DOC officers, or persons identifying. As law enforcement to the community such as, bail bondsman, bounty hunters, private investigators with Clert certifications. Etc?
Jason’s iPhone
34:00
Is the deescalation policy protocol the same for both youth and adults?
George's Gourmet Pound Cakes
34:07
what is the percentage of officers who gets charged with a crime in Aurora and Denver?
Christian Steward
36:03
I am curious about how senate bill 217 addresses the officer penalties once misuse or abuse of force has been made. for instance, suspensions, tracking misuse of force, and how police pensions are impacted by civil lawsuit cases?
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
37:10
what about the underlining white supremacists in and on the force . how are you dealing and riding of these individuals. it's outa hand.
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
38:18
did u know that when I chased him?
JESSE PARRIS
38:40
This is not a training issue its a cultural issue what is being done to address the violent and racist culture of the police in Denver and Aurora?
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
39:52
is that on camera...sounds crazy to me . running and shoot urself after getting shot by the police. sounds suspect
Rashad Younger
40:45
did u know that when I chased him? Will you clarify your question please
Rashad Younger
41:28
Alcatel β€”- did u know that when I chased him?
Rashad Younger
41:33
Please clarify
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
42:49
did the police know he was a criminal when they the police chased him ? the one who allegedly shot himself?
Major Dwayne Taylor
44:31
Please feel free to call Chaplains International, Inc. has been reaching out to both Aurora and Denver Police Dept. I pray that we will be able to work more together in dealing with Crisis Response Team. I can be reached at 720-447-4867 or Majordptaylor@gmail.com.
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
45:09
why do you think this last week was so heavy for the police and these shootings?
Sharon
45:11
Why does it appear that when a white person shoots it out with police they get arrested. A black person gets killed running away.
Rashad Younger
46:47
Thank you for all your questions. They are being relayed.
JESSE PARRIS
47:13
Your welcome Rashad and thanks
George's Gourmet Pound Cakes
47:23
Racism had nothing to do with these shooting!

JESSE PARRIS

We also need to address the violent culture of policing in America, not just in Colorado and in Denver and Aurora
Major Dwayne Taylor
49:50
Where are the Chaplains within either Departments?
Sharon
51:40
I saw a device on television of an invention of an item when used is like a teaser but it does not electrify a person it shoots a rope out to tie them up. Is something like that worth looking into.
JESSE PARRIS
51:47
What is being done to make it where our people feel safe to even call the police to handle situations that we perceive require police interaction?
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
51:58
I know I can't call the police if I needed to. I'm more scared of them then the situation and that is the problem.
Josh Jackson
52:33
What preventative measures or programs does the dept have in place to help engage with the community and stop these young ppl before they become felons
George's Gourmet Pound Cakes
53:20
Are police arrested for crimes in Denver, what are the numbers?
Josh Jackson
54:39
πŸ™πŸΏ agreed Senator Fields
Terrance Roberts
54:54
Black and Brown police kill people too, mainly people of color unfortunately. We need to address a culture of racism, sexism, and violence in general in policing. Two officers of color stood there while George Floyd was murdered.
Major Dwayne Taylor
01:00:05
Why is it no district police department in either Denver or Aurora does not have a visible Chaplain to help deal with Crisis Response??
JESSE PARRIS
01:01:35
Holding officers accountable for their actions is astart
George's Gourmet Pound Cakes
01:02:26
There should be money directly put into schools to encourage black boys to become officers! Like a student police club or something!
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
01:02:49
what are y talking about?. the profiling and excessive force especially in Aurora is outa hand regardless of the consent decree! call 911 and u sit on hold for longer than 8 minutes . come on now. pretty talking points the people don't feel as enthused at all.
Alcatel JOY TAB 2
01:04:03
chief Thomas are u going to clean house from the bad apples in your department!
Major Dwayne Taylor
01:04:49
Where are they at????
Major Dwayne Taylor
01:05:19
Who are they????
George's Gourmet Pound Cakes
01:05:39
To my understanding about 1000 officers get convicted every year, what is the number in Denver?
Terrance Roberts
01:10:43
Our General Fund is nearly $1.5 Billion - Our Public Safety Budget is $566,000,000.00 That's 39% percent of our General Fund. Only 2% goes to Housing. Nearly half of our unhoused neighbors are Black young men and women in the metro area, followed by our Latino/Chicano neighbors. We had 96 homicides last year, mainly youth of color. Housing Cost and Youth Violence is decimating the Black Community in Denver. We can do better Denver. Save Our City!
Major Dwayne Taylor
01:15:04
We have been waiting for that to happen in regards to Ride alongs.
Shy G Hudnall
01:15:09
Onboarding seems to be an issue. I have heard about some very negative experiences with young Black youth interested in becoming police officers. When they are discouraged from being themselves and encouraged to turn their back on those you live and have grown up with, youth are mot motivated to become officers
JESSE PARRIS
01:15:16
A budget is a measure of a city priorities, when you value profit over people, its The people who suffer! Black people suffer the most as result of these policies! We need people who have experienced the things these politicians are talking about changing! Redirecting the aim for us!

Right we can police ourselves we don't meed the police
Shy G Hudnall
01:18:24
There's to much funding being dispersed to continue making up excuses for historical actions and policies that are specific and intentional. The police force was designed for the behavior they display everyday.
Josh Jackson

We are getting tired. We are looking for folks with similar values. They get in and flip. they tell us what's not possible, they tell us they work for everyone but Black issues are typically totally neglected. Benign neglect is real. Voting has not led to tangible results in our communities!
