Petition:New Bill being Proposed for Tom Wolf to sign: VETO House Bill 1538
 
Hello fellow Pennsylvanians,

I'm not sure if I can post this here because I'm unable to read the "rules" page here, for some reason, but I thought I would pass this on:

In case anyone is interested, this is on Change.Org -

Dear Governor Wolf,

The state legislature recently passed a bill that not only hides the identities of police officers who seriously harm or KILL people, but it goes further to criminally charge public officials who release those names to the public. Police officers have a great deal of power, including the power to use force. That requires police departments to be transparent and accountable about their actions. That transparency is undermined by HB 1538.

We do not believe in unchecked police violence. We do not agree with criminalizing those who's goal is public safety and fair accountability. We stand against the wave of police violence that grips our country. We stand to make Pennsylvania a leader in positive police and community relations. Today we ask you to stand with us and VETO House Bill 1538.
