Hard crimes units fight only hard crimes.

ARTICLE.  IV.

The  DIVISION of  POWERS

PART.  II.     FEDERAL  RESPONSIBILITIES

Section.  6.   A national hard crimes only agency:

Section.  5.   One national armed hard crimes division:

Subject to Citizen and Judiciary oversight to check abuse of power, one national policing department will eliminate costs, inefficiency, corruption, expensive and dangerous investigation overlap, and competition for “collars” between agencies. These armed cops will specialize in aggravated assault, armed robbery, human trafficking, prostitution, rape, burglary, fraud, racketeering, gaming, organized crime and the like. Investigatory work done by researchers and analysts in office will be a check on corruption by police on the street. Body cams and GPS on all officers will reduce wrong doing, over staffed responses, do-nothing deployments and personal errands on department time.

PART.  III.     STATE  RESPONSIBILITIES

Section.  5.   An unarmed soft crimes department:

Unarmed specialists in their problem area, a paid Social Worker and a volunteer Peacemaker will deal with  misdemeanors: a troubled couple, petty thief, misbehaving addict, a wronged child. Cool headed locals from the community they serve, these here-to-help public servants will offer deals and programs instead of fines, fees and jail time that disrupt work and paychecks, and make offenders less stable, more desperate and more likely to mess up.

Both divisions will share information and innovations.

SUMMARY

Review Court provides free advisory opinions

on any legal matter.

The advantage of expensive attorneys will be equalized.

Our  JUDICIAL  Branch

PART.  V.     JUDICIAL  PROCEEDINGS

Section.  3.   Officers making more than 3 arrests not leading to convictions will receive disciplinary action:

Today, quotas for arrests and fines encourage over policing that pads officers’ paychecks and overstates department funding needs. On board are politicians who convince voters that lots of arrests make their streets safer, when they are just as likely to make them more repressive. Millions of petty arrestees expediently plead “time served” to allow the night in jail and the fine(s) paid to suffice as punishment for alleged misdemeanors, with no check on the misuse of police power. The Valentine Constitution allows arrestees to contest an arrest free of charge in Review Court, and penalizes officers for unwarranted or false arrests to keep them honest and nip corruption in the bud. 

PART.  IV.     Our  COURTS

Section.  1.   Review Court shall within 1 month issue a free, nonbinding opinion on the merits of any case:

Not worth the stress, time and money required to sue, or too expensive to defend against, bad actors, including the government and big companies, go unchallenged. The Valentine Constitution instead allows Citizens to get a quick ruling on any civil or criminal dispute from 3 specialized judges who may even suggest settlements. Fast, free, educational and user friendly, our Courts will protect our Citizens from unfair business practices, fraud, crime and bad policing, and stop the bad from preying on the good.

SPEAK POWER to POWER

Nonprofits, protests, parties, candidates, Presidents with 2 house majorities, none have solved our persistent problems. Instead, polarized sides concern themselves and us in the petty details of their competing investigations. Valentine puts the solutions we need into written legislation we can demand by reserving our votes for candidates who support ratification.

Women and LGBTs want equal rights and pay. Parents want schools that develop children’s gifts into profitable skills. Un(der)employed adults want similar free after school classes. Workers prefer a $20 minimum wage to welfare. Blacks want a fair policing and court system. Fiscal conservatives want accountable, deficit free government and a single 5% tax. Environmentalists, fishermen, etc want sustainable energy, farming, fishing and forestry practices. Celebrities want an end to the paparazzi; and gun owners would agree to background checks. Our current Constitution fails on these issues. This constitution includes them all, and our foundations and rights.

With inclusive legislation to team up behind, this coalition of left and right voters is powerful enough to dictate the outcome of any election. Add sports, music and movie celebrities, and nonprofits dedicated to these provisions, and this constitution will be easily ratified. Polling will force candidates to vote FOR RATIFICATION or not be (re)elected. Recommend ratification, in person, on social media, post a selfie or selfeo saying “Ratify The Valentine Constitution”, join one of our Facebook groups …
