POLICE REFORM BEGINS IN USA

Prohibition of suffocation of detainees adopted

A bill seeking to reform law enforcement and help prevent police brutality was unveiled in Congress Monday following weeks of protests and the death of George Floyd.

The Justice in Policing Act of 2020 includes measures that civil rights leaders have promoted for decades to combat racial bias and excessive force in law enforcement, according to The New York Times.

The bill calls for police departments to undergo mandatory bias training, the creation of a national registry to track police misconduct and would eliminate some unannounced police raids.

Law enforcement officers would have to use dashboard and body cameras while on duty, report more instances of use of force, and ban certain police tactics, including chokeholds.

The bill would also make police officers more liable for any civil rights violations they commit. 

The proposed legislation is sponsored by four Democrats: Reps. Karen Bass, chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, as well as Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.

The bill comes as major cities across the country look to make changes to their police departments after George Floyd’s death on May 25.

Floyd, a black man, was killed when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes, even after Floyd had passed out. His name joins a list of numerous other black Americans who have died during arrests or while in police custody.  

House Democrats gathered in the Capitol’s Emancipation Hall before unveiling the bill. They knelt in silence there for 8 minutes and 46 seconds: the same amount of time Floyd was pinned to the ground.

“The martyrdom of George Floyd gave the American experience a moment of national anguish as we grieve for the black Americans killed by police brutality today,” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told reporters Monday. “This moment of national anguish is being transformed into a movement of national action as Americans from across the country peacefully protest to demand an end to injustice.”

The arrival of the new bill comes just a day after the Minneapolis City Council announced it would be dismantling its police force, citing that it is too late for reform, according to The New York Times.
