On June 8, the National Black Caucus introduced a bill in the Senate called the Justice in Policing Act. The bill’s intent is to put an end to police brutality. The much publicized death of George Floyd at the hand of the police has sparked a worldwide movement calling for change. In an answer to the hundreds of thousands of people protesting in demand of justice, the Justice in Policing Act is demanding that specific rules be put in place on the Federal level to eliminate police brutality or at the very least, deal with it instead of sweeping it under the proverbial rug. The bill includes: banning choke holds, stopping racial profiling, defining and employing reasonable restraint, and compiling a public database of complaints against police officers among some of the key components.
