4) Take away all military hardware from every police force in the country.

5) Revise and simply the procedures for suing police for abuse of power/harassment/arbitrary violation of civil rights, and give the new rules massive teeth, starting with immediate dismissal and a lifetime ban from acting in any enforcement capacity, public or private, a lifetime ban on possession of any firearm, and fines in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Then nail every one of them to the wall.

Cameras work because they keep both sides semi-honest.
6) For a variety of reasons, enough with the drug war already.
