SB2237 - Would keep secret those involved in executions, including the execution team, lethal injection drug providers.
We oppose SB2237 as it deprives a citizen of the meaningful due process rights guaranteed by the constitution.
HB647: Provides that anyone who fails to pay a fine or appear in municipal court shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
We oppose HB647 because it completely ignores the spotlight that has been cast on modern-day debtors’ prisons within our state, at best.
HB 1399 - Requires municipal governments to provide police officers with body-worn cameras, requires police officers to wear cameras while on patrol, and makes an officer’s failure to wear the camera a misdemeanor offense.
The ACLU recognizes the potential that police body cameras have to increase police transparency.
The ACLU of MS supports HB2656 because it allows for transparency and accountability on both sides of the badge during routine traffic stops. Requiring consent makes sense for everyone.
