Poor Lives Matter
Poor Lives Matter demonstrates that the disproportionate use of deadly force against black people has more to do with racial economic disadvantage than it does racism by police.
Poor Lives Matter also introduces the Criteria for Deadly Force and Enforcement, which establishes a simple criteria to conclusively gauge when a subject is an immediate threat and deadly force is necessary.
CDFE, in an effort to end the local as well as occupational bias that deprives victims families of justice, will create a regionally elected investigative prosecution team to enforce the criteria.
Finally, PLM examines 10 real life uses of deadly force and applies the criteria to each case.
