Speaking on creating a task force to examine the use of excessive force, Assembly Member Crespo said, "Ladies and gentlemen lets be real here. Everyone of those names i mentioned happened in communities like ours, in communities of color. A lot of the police officers are men and women of color who come from our neighborhoods. It's not an issue of all police officers being bad, we respect and celebrate those who take seriously their responsibility, but so as long as we continue to see incidences where innocent victims are gunned down by someone who doesn't take the job seriously or apply the law fairly or just prejudges the people they encounter, then we have to look at solutions like this."
