California Assembly Advances Bill to Permanently Strip Badges from Bad Law Enforcement Officers

Law enforcement organizations and those who opposed the bill agreed that the state needs a way of removing bad officers.
But they objected that the bill by Democratic Sen. Steven Bradford is biased because it relies on a nine-member disciplinary board with just two police representatives and seven members with professional or personal backgrounds related to police accountability.
"It is grossly unfair," said Republican Assemblyman Kelly Seyarto, one of those of both parties speaking in opposition. "None of the other 46 states have a similar composition. ... None of them are this lopsided."
