An Illinois legislator has introduced a bill in the house of egg heads that would give legislators the power of arrest. Calling for law makers to be “Conservators Of The Peace” it gives them the authority to detain and arrest those in violation of any law. Wait a minute…isn’t that the cops job?
The Law Conservators would have to have a training certificate from the POST board. Todays cops are required 14 weeks of intensive training just to wear the badge. Additionally, They will enrobe themselves in expanded immunity protections that are denied commissioned police officers. What?
I can just see it now. Some unknowing “Conservator” inserts himself/herself into a dangerous and potentially deadly situation. As the incident spins out of control the “Conservator” will ask…where are the cops? Are these people losing their minds?
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
