Senate Police Reform Bill fails on a test vote...


Jul 13, 2005
There absolutely needs to be an end to qualified immunity!!
The Republicans just want to do lip service to these issues like thei father Donny!!


A Republican-authored police reform bill failed in a Senate test vote Wednesday after Democrats opposed the bill on the basis it did not go far enough – sparking a furious war of words on the floor and marking an apparent impasse just weeks after George Floyd's death led to calls for new legislation.

However, it does not ban chokeholds outright and does not end qualified immunity – two items that Democrats have demanded.

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said the bill "guarantees that the cycle of violence in our country, the cycle of abuse of civil rights, the cycle of death that has moved so many Americans will continue."
