Your To-Do List For Monday


Hello Tumblr,

  1. Find your representative. Call them and ask for Cameras For Cops.
  2. Find your senator. Call them and ask for Cameras For Cops.

When they ask why you’re calling, tell them:

"I’m call to request legislation requiring all police officers to wear camera and for them to record audio and video at all times while they are on duty."

That’s it. It won’t take long. We have to let them know we’re tired.
