"A sweeping criminal. Justice measure is now law in illinois it sets in motion the elimination of cash. Bail new standards for how police operate and outlines the rights of criminals. once they are incarcerated advocates. Say it'll make the state safer. Critics say it's just the opposite. Amanda finicky joins us now. Amanda tell us more about this law grandest that this new law stands to be transformative arguable but is up for debate. Is the impact of those changes. Now this was set in motion by the police killing of george floyd and then the protests spanning the country and illinois. The city rising up against police brutality particularly against black and brown people. I remember joining a protest has june and witnessing something i had never experienced before there were far more people demanding that black lives matter than those who looked like. That's when i knew. I knew this moment was different and leading the black caucus. At that time. I knew that as a caucus we had to cease this moment together sees it. They did senator. Kim lankford says they propelled that pain into action with illinois black. Legislators last month offering us shrink through a trio of bills including the one that governor jay pritzker signed today which he says is one that remark remarked transformative step forward in illinois's effort to lead the country in dismantling systemic racism. Bill is seven hundred sixty four pages long so we can't hear get into drill into all that does but among the changes that it makes are creating a misconduct felony offense for police officers. Who intentionally matter present facts in their reports broadening the police certification system including a method to strip officers of their certification. Even if they're not actually charged with a crime limiting what police unions can bargain when they're drafting contracts and mandating more training for police including on mental health in crisis intervention focuses on the safety of our communities accountability for law enforcement fairness and equity in our criminal justice system and communities who are demanding that that happens today. They're demanding that we have transparency. They're demanding that we modernize our thinking they recognize. We've tried to failed tough on crime policies of the past which have not made us more safe the recognize that you can support good officers and want reform at the same time. Today's bill signing ceremony governor pritzker likewise dismissing critics. Promising that this positive change for everyone opponents of this law. Don't want any change. Don't believe there is injustice in the system and are preying upon fear of change to lie and fearmongering in defense of the status quo. But let me say this. To the people of this great state all illinois will live in a safer and more just state with this law on the books were being labeled as a group. That doesn't want any change while that's just wrong. You know we've been at the table to discuss a lot of different things we have been for years. We continue to do so so but women's last time. The governor reached out to us and ask questions about any this awake. He has gym contract with the sheriff's association says that a coalition of law enforcement groups did agree on some aspects of this massive package like much of the certification changes but he says strict limits on things like use of force will hinder police from doing their jobs. He says a lot of the language in the new laws confusing for officers and won't force them to ponder if they're wanting to be breaking state lawn facing repercussions there even as they're in qatar lethal situations. How do we in effect an arrest. Based on this. If i can identify you a mandate because i know you. You just committed a crime but you're going to resist. That means i need to come back and try to arrest you later. You're going to resist me. Which most people not everybody resists but a lot of people do mean physical. Does it mean herbal. I mean there's so many different aspects of this that are to say the least to try to keep our community safe another huge chain. This law makes is the effectively ends cash. Bail advocates are celebrating this as monumental in that they say prevent people who haven't ever been convicted of a crime from losing their jobs homes even families as they're stuck in jail but former prosecutor state senator. John current says there is a way to do that but he says illinois went out. It wrong he says that's because illinois didn't give judges enough discretion he says that therefore creates a catch and release system for criminals. We can't agree that an individual that that detention should not be determined inability to pay. There should be a system in place that is going to have greater consequences for the indigent. Were those that can least afford to pay as As compared to someone of wealth someone of wealth that poses a risk to the community at large should be in that same standard just because they can pay a high by an agree there but what we replaced that system with matters. It needs to maintain that level of public safety. Another change got a couple of years to ratchet up to this point but police cameras will become mandatory and current asks how local departments are going to pay for it or i would also say the unfunded mandates are two things increase in property taxes at the local level or a decrease in policing services. It's going to be an either or again. Those are among the changes. This really is a sweeping new law. Among the other changes arrestees. We'll get to make three calls instead of one and they can be able to check their phone as well ostensibly to get those phone contacts. The law does not make any change to qualified immunity. That was a major sticking point in negotiations but it does create a task force that is going to examine that issue. By the way you want to look for some changes or fixes advocates. Say that that's just a normal part of the process particularly with something this massive but critics say that that is evidence that this overhaul was rushed
