Criminal Justice Reform

The Stakes are High

I believe our whole criminal justice system needs an overhaul. We must re-examine our mandatory minimum sentences and eliminate cash bail requirements. In addition, I support the recent criminal justice reform initiatives presented by IDAAC-Indy:
- the ban of chokeholds, with repercussions if used
- body cams must be on at all times when interacting with the public; consequences if not
- creation of a statewide commission to examine Indiana's justice system and recommend reforms
- mayors and city council members will put together a local civilian board to review public complaints
- maintenance of a public-accessible database that shows use of force incidents
