Numerous Bloomington upper management police officers were sent to a 2 day training in Skokie Il. The training was called BRILL LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTION IN DEMOCRACY.
“Democracy” is the first clue to this training. We aren’t a Democracy.
The second clue is it was held at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. Third clue: The training helps police departments in meeting the “Shared Principals of Policing issued by the NAACP in 2018”. (Principals is THEIR spelling) They claim to have trained over 6000 officers since 2011.
This may or may not be the only story on this training.
When these officers completed the training they filled out evaluations. One summed up exactly what I was thinking while reading the course description. I haven’t been to this Holocaust Museum but I have been to the one in DC. Any entire day could easily be spent there and worth every minute of it.
Two other comments were completely redacted. The reason they gave makes no sense since other comments weren’t redacted.
This isn’t the only transparency issue with Bloomington. More on that later, it might take a lawsuit.
The bigger government gets the more authoritarian they become. Bloomington is growing out of control.
