Legislation.. Its in the works

Or is it.. its at least being reviewed! I have been ghosted, ignored and lied to by so many government and elected officials its a shame, but i wanted to post this update just to have the info here.


Update: In January2022 I was informed by walter blackman of the house that he would have the research his team had done and be ready to move forward with legislation drafting. However, after him being late to contact me and several messages to his office, he informed me he has chosen to not write this legislation, a year and two sessions after he said he would, a year and two session deadlines after his staff was told to research it. I asked him if he had an alternative, he offered one , I asked for the research and any notes he has on the bill and he has yet to reply.. a month later, his alternative has not replied to several contact attempts.. This leads me to believe he is a liar and I am in the process of determining if I can find a member whos word and pen can be trusted, The following is the info I wrote before this update.. just a heads up, I will be looking into legislation to hold politicians like walt responsible for lying in office, on the campaign trail and any other deceptive practices that can be considered intentional. I am just not sure the best way to go about it. I believe it should start with government liability and the docking of a percentage of the violators income.


Around March 2021 I contacted the Az house and senate and judicial comities, with a proposal to make deserved improvements to our judicial system and offer some more education at the same time. I would like to argue that these improvements fulfill what are human rights and should be respected in that way. That rules should be introduced before enforced even if a person choses not to learn them. I met with a few...


So Walter Blackman of the Az house , judicial committee and I talked after his office reviewed the letter.. similar to whats posted in Legislation and Solutions | TruthJusticeLiberty it was modified to fit states abilities... After a few conversations and a promise to do some polling to gauge the community response, gather additional info etc. Mr. Blackman agreed this was legislation he wanted to see created, Below is the email he sent over to his staff and hopefully everything is sound.. If you read below that you will find the bill text, right below the explanation of what the picture is about.

Below is a picture used in zoom meet presentations with some of the judicial committee members. Its an informational help site with links to laws..

This same concept I believe could and should be applied to Legal Help and other help information offered by these same jurisdictions across the nation, it would greatly decrease the time it takes to find the assistances available (food banks, shelters, healthcare, legal aid, etc. all in one place easy to find and use.

Any way,

Here is the proposed bill text, you will notice it incorporates ( Creating educational materials for interactions with law enforcement and language translation of law (truthjusticeliberty.org) ) most of the ideas mentioned in this link to be proposed on a national level.


It should be noted the text states translations of English and Spanish.. I would like it to include "threshold languages'.. Most other languages fall into a less that 1% category, so reasonable adjustments would need to be reviewed, like offering translations on paper as opposed to making video materials. also I didn't change the typo in super, dont sue me. typos happen. Lastly I sent a copy that did not include required measures of punishment education. (as a deterrent to those who cant see the options). I will post the later draft soon.

Mr. Congressman Below is the Bill text modified the best i could and attached is a picture of the referenced addition to the states website. Below that is the google form that I will provide to the states supoerintendents, If there is anything that you want added or to inform the superintendents of just write me a email. Thank you Nicholas Woodall 5122978742 text in ( ), * and < > are as reference or items I am not able to word into "bill text", mostly because of education. SB30 Modified Arizona's rights and responsibilities when interacting with law enforcement. An act relating to inclusion of instruction regarding interaction with peace officers in the required curriculum for public and private school students. It shall be offered in english and spanish. BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA: SECTION 1. This Act may be cited as the Community Safety Education Act. SECTION 2. Subchapter A, Chapter 28, Education Code, is amended by adding Section 28.012 to read as follows: Sec. 28.012. INSTRUCTION ON INTERACTION WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT. (a) In this section: (1) "Board" means the State Board of Education. (2) "Commission" means the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement. (3) "Driver training school" has the meaning assigned by Section 1001.001. (b) The board and the commission shall enter into a memorandum of understanding that establishes each agency's respective responsibilities in developing instruction, including curriculum and instructional modules, on proper interaction with peace officers during traffic stops and other in-person encounters. << I believe that the language should be modified to state that a presentation and informational materials (video, poster and pamphlets) will be provided, stating that jurisdictions will be provided with 'educational materials' to meet the below listed needs. If they wish to produce their own 'materials' they should have the right to do so, as long as they meet the states listed expectations.>> The video's and or materials must include information regarding: (1) the role of law enforcement and the duties and responsibilities of peace officers; (2) a person's rights concerning interactions with peace officers; (3) proper behavior for civilians and peace officers during interactions; <<Information videos, materials or presentations must or should include specifically.>> * Introduce who law enforcement is (branches: police, sheriff, fbi, etc.) and how to identify. * Inform of responsibility to comply with the enforcers request to stay in place. * Informing the audience to inform enforcers if there is immediate danger. * Inform how to verify an enforcer is an enforcer (call 911 or the enforcers post location and agency) if you doubt they are truly a member of enforcement. * Inform of proper etiquette. (4)laws regarding questioning and detention by peace officers, including any law requiring a person to present proof of identity to a peace officer, and the consequences for a person's or officer's failure to comply with those laws. <<Information videos, materials or presentations must or should include specifically.>> *Informing of when use of force by law is authorized and the levels of force use from non physical to deadly force. *Inform that resisting arrest is a crime with reference to the minimum and maximum sentences and fines. * Informing of the right to refuse to answer questions (Miranda Rights) and what to expect if arrested. * Inform of an arizonans responsibility to identify (provide their full name) if they are detained as a suspect.. not sure how to word this, but here is the statue ************************* <ARS 13-2412. Refusing to provide truthful name when lawfully detained; classification A. It is unlawful for a person, after being advised that the person’s refusal to answer is unlawful, to fail or refuse to state the person's true full name on request of a peace officer who has lawfully detained the person based on reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing or is about to commit a crime. A person detained under this section shall state the person's true full name, but shall not be compelled to answer any other inquiry of a peace officer.> ************************************************************************** (5) how and where to file a complaint against or a compliment on behalf of a peace officer. <<Information videos, materials or presentations must or should include specifically.>> * Inform of the ability to obtain public records, such as body cam footage, 911 calls and more from the involved agency. May vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. * Inform that statute of limitations exist and public records info is kept for a finite amount of time. * Inform of what to do if a person believes an enforcer behaved improperly. (To comply and ... file a complaint or police report asap...) * Inform of where to commend and file complaints. (With the enforcers employing agency or otherwise) (6) presentations shall contain no ending credits, "Video" ending screens must contain information to where governing laws can be found. Stating: Your laws can be found here. Listing Azleg.gov/arstitle/ at top, the location of the jurisdictions civil ordinances (city and or county) Phoenix.gov/citygovernment/codes , maricopa.gov/2271/Ordinances-Regulations-and-Codes in the middle and Uscode.house.gov at the bottom. including or as an alternative, see in between the stars below ************************* Most cities or towns laws, statues and ordinances are not easily found on their respective websites without heavy navigation involving language that may be confusing. As a solution to the issue of where to find laws and an end to the practice of law enforcers and court employees telling people to "google it" you could create a clause that requires the state to have a simple to find page such as "az.gov/findlaws" with a list of federal, state, county and cities law links, making that the official response. Az.gov is a state owned website and an appropriate place to "add a page" there is no az.gov/findlaws, but it is very quick and easy to create "tool of convenience" . A picture titled "FIND LAWS AZ" is attached to show what it could look like. ******************************** (6b) Jurisdictions of the state shall post their 'edu video' directly to their cities or law enforcement websites or youtube with a link on atleast one of these sites. (7) The state and or its jurisdictions shall provide posters to courts, city halls, law enforcement agencies, border stops, roadside rest stops, schools and or appropriate locations. To be posted near the same place as discrimination, workplace rights, osha and or other related required presented materials when fitting. the posters shall provide info for where a person can find laws they are governed by. (If the creation of az.gov/findlaws is created the poster shall simply say Find laws here. with the website address but may also include additional info. ******** Fairness in governance should mean introduction to law, to encourage use of the justice system and ensure that punishment happening before introduction is not the fault of the government. ********* (8) The state and or its jurisdictions shall create and provide law enforcers, (Police, Sheriff, CBP, etc) with a deescalation tool, "pamphlets". These pamphlets will provide at least the same (or a reasonable amount of) information as the interactions w/law enforcement video. Titled (to be determined, by you?) Your Responsibilities And Rights. The pamphlet will be available for enforcers to reference or provide to persons (at their discretion or when asked) at the beginning of an interaction or when persons are behaving improperly during interactions, as a de-escalation tool. Being designed to "match" the video in color scheme, design and font, with the goal of reinforcing learned "rules or practices" and reminding persons of their responsibilities and rights. If a 9 cent piece of folded paper can be an additional tool for enforcers to have, then I think it should be provided. stating that its use should not be mandatory, but available to reference, use, offer and present to persons if asked. If it means an enforcer avoids a "fight" or a person does not leave an interaction with resting arrest charges. To be made in english and spanish. (c) In developing the instruction under this section, the board and the commission may consult with any interested party, including a volunteer work group convened for the purpose of making recommendations regarding the instruction. (d) Before finalizing any instruction under this section, the board and the commission shall provide a reasonable period for public comment. (e) Subject to rules adopted by the board, a school district or open-enrollment charter school may tailor the instruction developed under this section as appropriate for the district's or school's community. In tailoring the instruction, the district or school shall solicit input from local law enforcement agencies, driver training schools, and the community. SECTION 3. Section 28.025, Education Code, is amended by adding Subsection (b-20) to read as follows: (b-20) The State Board of Education shall adopt rules to include the instruction developed under Section 28.012 in one or more courses in the required curriculum for students in grade levels 9 through 12. SECTION 4. Subchapter C, Chapter 1001, Education Code, is amended by adding Section 1001.109 to read as follows: Based on the information in the azdot drivers manual there may be no benifit from a traffic stops informational. AzDot already explains proper behavior for traffic stops. Should they create a video? thats your decision. If you wanted to look at the paragraph in section 7 of the azdot manual (law enforcement) and adding that public records(body cams, incident reports, etc.) can be requested from the interacting agency. This is the location of Azdot driver manuals https://azdot.gov/motor-vehicles/driver-services/tests-manuals-and-driving-schools/manuals Sec. 1001.109. INFORMATION RELATING TO TRAFFIC STOPS. (a) The commission by rule shall require that information relating to law enforcement procedures for traffic stops be included in the curriculum of each driver education course and driving safety course.

(b) In developing the curriculum under this section, the commission may consult with any interested party, including a volunteer work group convened for the purpose of making recommendations regarding the curriculum.

( It is designed as a refresher for enforcers who may not be up to date on current training, The rest of this document details time frames in which programs will be provided. Sec. 1701.268. CIVILIAN INTERACTION TRAINING PROGRAM. (a) In this section, "board" means the State Board of Education. (b) The commission and the board shall enter into a memorandum of understanding that establishes each agency's respective responsibilities in developing a training program, including training and testing materials, on proper interaction with civilians during traffic stops and other in-person encounters.

I've invited you to fill out a form:Interactions with law enforcement education This form is to ask support for the creation of legislation creating materials for educating persons in Arizona into their rights and responsibilities when interactions with law occur. The goal of this legislation and its materials, will be to provide the public with a better (brief formal introduction) understanding and information they can trust. In the hopes it results in fewer bad interactions, fewer resisting arrest charges, fewer injuries and law suits, etc. By providing enforcers additional de-escalation tools and giving the public the info they need and deserve to be as well informed as they can be. Also to encourage the policing of the police through the filing of commendations, complaints, civil and criminal charges when improper behavior occurs. The materials of this legislation would do several things. It will create a short video, posters and pamphlets that are to be presented to Arizona students as well as available to the public. The materials will introduce: Who law enforcers are, What they look like, Branches and how to identify/verify them. Inform of persons and enforcers rights and responsibility's when interactions occur, such as: A persons responsibility to comply with enforcers request. Define proper behavior and actions that are appropriate as they relate to each party respectively. (Hands out of pockets, Search and frisking laws, procedures or rules ( things like the right to be frisked by a member of your own gender when (reasonable) possible). Understanding use of force (from non violent all the way to what gives enforcers the right to use deadly force). Persons rights to refuse questions, what to expect if arrested. The ability to obtain public records like body cams, 911 calls and more. Also What to do if an enforcer behaves improperly (where to commend and file complaints against enforcers if improper behavior occurs.) Finally it will provide people with the location of these materials and the local city, county, state and federal laws online. o ( ) Yes o ( ) No (Optional) Why? (Optional) If any, what current educational programs related to or offered by law enforcement does your districts school(s) regularly participate in? Safe Summer, Anti Bullying, McGruff crime prevention, anti gang programs or other? Are there any programs you would like to see created?
