Biden signs police reform executive order on anniversary of George Floyd's death

Recommended Posts


The order will create a national registry of officers fired for misconduct and encourage state and local police to tighten restrictions on chokeholds and "no-knock" warrants.



 It also restricts the transfer of military equipment to law enforcement agencies and mandates all federal agents wear activated body cameras.


Biden had been pushing Congress to pass more comprehensive police reform legislation, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. But after the legislation failed to garner bipartisan support, the White House began crafting its own action last year. Biden called again on Congress again to take action before signing the order.


“I know progress can be slow and frustrating, and there’s a concern that the reckoning on race inspired two years ago is beginning to fade,” Biden said.



The family of Floyd, who died after he was pinned to the ground by a Minneapolis police officer, was at the White House for the signing. The families of other Black people killed by police in recent years — Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, Amir Locke and Atatiana Jefferson — also attended, a senior administration official said.

Good.  Especially since we're hearing about more and more horror stories about how terrible the police were at the most recent shooting.


They need the military grade adrenaline to psych themselves into going into an active shooter situation.
