101 signed. Let's get to 200!
As Americans took to the streets to demand justice for George Floyd and police reform, Democrats stand ready to make major change.
Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker introduced the Justice in Policing Act, which would implement sweeping reforms in American policing.
The bill would ban chokeholds, including the kind that was used against George Floyd that led to his death. It would also:
require local police department to send data on use of force to the federal government;
establish a grant program that allows state attorneys general to investigate misconduct or excessive use of force;
make it easier for people to recover damages when police violate their civil rights; and
make lynching a federal hate crime.
Republicans have responded by putting together their own bill, which would make hardly any changes. Democrats blocked this bill yesterday. It's time the entire Senate rallied behind the Justice in Policing Act. This is not about politics, this is about improving and saving lives.
