Mitch McConnell Tries To Step In The Way Of Senate Democrats Pushing For Police Reform

Published

on

Senate Republicans are due to start looking over a new police reform measures next week that would ban chokeholds and create a national reporting database that would be used as a means of keeping track of use of force and questionable tactics employed by law enforcement officers on the job.

Some folks aren’t too happy with these ideas, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who announced on Wednesday that he rearranged the schedule in order to consider the reform measures being proposed in the midst of all of the civil unrest going on in our country right now.

One thing’s for sure. That national database certainly raises some concerns over big government having that kind of power and the potential abuses or other creative applications they might be tempted to use such a database for.

The measure would ban federal law enforcement from using chokeholds unless an officer is facing lethal force and it would pull federal funding from local police departments that do not institute a chokehold ban.

The measure would provide federal grants to enable police departments to purchase body cameras and institute penalties for officers who don’t turn the cameras on.

The legislation is authored by Sen. Tim Scott, a South Carolina Republican and African American who has been vocal about his own experiences with racial bias in policing.

Scott has claimed to have been pulled over for what he calls “questionable reasons” while driving in the Capitol by law enforcement professionals who don’t know that he is a senator.

“The George Floyd incident certainly accelerated this conversation and we find ourselves at a place with a package that I think speaks to the families that I spoke with yesterday, who lost loved ones,” the senator said. We hear you. I think this package speaks very clearly to the young person who’s concerned when he stopped Law enforcement officers. We see you.”

One of the provisions of the House bill would bring to an end the practice of no-knock warrants. This would be accomplished by taking away funding from departments that employ the tactic.

No-knock warrants legally allow law enforcement officers to enter a residence without warning. This has led to many violent altercations and unnecessary shootings. And not just of potential criminals, but of unsuspecting residents as well.

Back in March, police in Louisville, Kentucky shot and killed Breona Taylor in her apartment during the execution of a no-knock warrant in the middle of the night. She was unarmed.

Sen. Scott doesn’t want to flat out ban the tactic. He proposes collecting data on it first to see how it is being used. The Senate bill has a provision for the collection of data from no-knock warrants. The provision is named after Taylor.

Joe Biden Gets Creamed For His Non-Apology For Remarks About Black Community

Published

on

If you’re a person working for the Joe Biden presidential campaign right now, you have to be subsisting on a steady diet of Xanax in order to deal with the stress this man causes by simply opening up his mouth and spouting forth all kinds of nonsense. Is it any wonder that folks on the left are so desperate to keep Biden out of the public eye? Clearly, there are some serious mental health issues happening with this man, possibly something like dementia, but they are pushing him forward anyway. Lots of reasons exists for doing that, but regardless, it’s brutal to watch. Biden recently made a statement that essentially said all black people think the same and Latino people have diversity of thought. This didn’t go over well for obvious reasons. The former vice president then made an apology for the statement, but it was horrible too, so now he’s getting creamed for that too. via The Daily Wire: “Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community. It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place.” Biden added, “My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.” Early on Thursday, Biden said during an interview, “What you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an…

Rioters Once Again Charge Into Portland Suburb; Drench Elderly Woman In Paint

Published

on

Rioters — oops, I mean, “peaceful protesters” — once again stormed a Portland suburb, this time opting to set their sights on harassing elderly counter protesters by tossing paint all over them among many other heinous deeds. Folks, there’s nothing peaceful about these people. It’s clear they are not interested in trying to win people over to their point of view. They want to force you to comply with their sick and twisted vision for the future of this country and if you resist, you will be beaten into submission. via The Daily Wire: Once again, the Portland Police Department was forced to declare a supposed protest an “unlawful assembly” after assessing that the intent of the rioters was “to vandalize or attempt to burn down the precinct.” The Portland Police Department tweeted out a photo of the elderly woman whom the rioters doused with paint and noted in a subsequent tweet that they incorrectly stated that she was the woman using a walker, when in fact it was another elderly woman who was present. https://twitter.com/PortlandPolice/status/1291602683267178502 Portland Tribune reporter Zane Sparling took videos of the incident that showed the rioters aggressively confronting the two women and showed the woman covered in paint. https://twitter.com/PDXzane/status/1291597748366528512 https://twitter.com/PDXzane/status/1291597626714886144 Journalist Andy Ngo, who has had his fair share of violent run-ins with the terrorists in Antifa, took the time on Twitter to highlight the hostility being displayed toward the two women from these miscreants. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1291605805167386624 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1291607302848438272 How much more of this insanity is going to be allowed to continue unchecked by Democratic leadership in Portland? It’s time to step up to the plate and shut these people down and restore law and order. If that means requiring help from federal resources, so be it. We just cannot allow this kind of violence to continue and…
