Democrats Block Black Senator’s Police Reform Bill

This bill gave Democrats and BLM most of the legislative changes they have been demanding and yet they block it. Why?

Virtually every one of these famed police abuses cases happened in areas run by Democrats for decades with nary a Republican in sight and yet they have proposed no reforms.

This is Senator Tim Scott who, if we may editorialize a little, is perhaps the most honest, good hearted and genuine people in Congress today. The leader of the Democrats in the Senate, Dick Durbin from Illinois, used Klan language to defend his willingness to do nothing by calling the bill “a token” which was obviously a racial shot as Senator Scott as well.

One might wonder why the leadership of Black Lives Matter refuses to criticize Democrats for blocking reforms they say they have been demanding for years.

The video below is worth your time.

Why Democrats make certain that inner city poor remain desperate, poor and uneducated.

    Barr Believes Unfair Policing of African American Males a ‘Widespread Phenomenon’

    Attorney General William Barr said he believes that there is a “widespread phenomenon” in which African American males are often treated differently by law enforcement in the United States.

    “I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, particularly, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said during an ABC News interview broadcast on July 8. He said it’s wrong if people are “not respected appropriately and given their due.”

    The comments provide further insights into his position on systemic bias in policing of the African American community. Last month, Barr said in another interview that he doesn’t think the “law enforcement system is systemically racist.” He clarified his position in the ABC interview, saying that he was unsure what people meant when asked about “systemic” racism.

    “Well the word ‘systemic,’ I’m not sure whether people mean it’s built into the system, so the system inherently has this, or whether they mean it’s [a] widespread issue,” he said.

    Protests calling for a change in policing and police accountability erupted across the nation following the death of George Floyd, who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes while he was being arrested.

    The incident, Barr said, demonstrated that the country still has work to do in regards to correcting years of distrust between the African American community and law enforcement.
