A sweeping police reform bill passed by House Democrats along party lines could put police officers in dangerous situations, and have a negative impact on recruiting efforts, leaving communities that are riddled with crime even more vulnerable.
Key elements of the "George Floyd Justice in Policing Act" include a ban on chokeholds, and no-knock warrants in drug cases, as well as an overhaul of qualified immunity for law enforcement officers. While some elements of the bill, like mandatory body cameras, and dashboard cameras, are largely supported by law enforcement officials, many agree the bill falls short when it comes to addressing overall criminality. They describe many proposals in the bill as an emotional, knee-jerk reaction to a few isolated incidents that don't reflect policing as a whole.
