Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was among the more than 1,400 athletes, coaches, and executives who signed a letter urging Congress to pass a bill to end qualified immunity, which shields police from lawsuits over their conduct. The Players Coalition gathered signatures from figures across the sports world, including Dak Prescott, Myles Garrett, Tom Brady and Steve Kerr.

The bill, introduced Thursday by U.S. Reps. Justin Amash, L-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., seeks to eliminate the qualified immunity doctrine. Studies have found that the doctrine, created by the Supreme Court, grants immunity to police even when courts find that they used excessive force.

The Coalition's letter to Congress traces the history of the doctrine and concludes:
"The Courts and elected officials alike have instead shielded people who caused unspeakable harm. Congress must not be complicit in these injustices, and it should take this important step to show that law enforcement abuse will not be tolerated."

Good for Derrick for using his platform. Makes a statement, incorporated into the game. I also like the creativity in the message:
