The ACLU-CT is committed to ending police violence and racism in policing in all forms. Accountability measures alone are not enough. The ACLU-CT strongly supports Senate Bill 1071 as an essential step in creating a more fair and just criminal legal system and ending mass incarceration. Deceptive interrogation tactics are outdated and ineffective threats to justice. Make no mistake—no one, child or adult, should be imprisoned because police lied to them during an interrogation. This bill would be a first step toward ending this deceitful manipulation of children, who are some of the most vulnerable people in interrogations.
