Partisan Split on Police Reform: Pro-Civil Rights Vs. Pro-Police

June 25, 2020

Police reform is a partisan issue; Democrats leaning pro-Civil Rights, Republicans leaning pro-police. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), who drew up the Senate police reform bill, fell short of the 60 votes needed for a procedural vote needed to begin debate on the bill. Democrats did not buy into the Republican plan. The House is expected to vote today.

April Ryan speaks with Dr. Jacqueline Rhoden-Trader, Chair & Associate Professor of Criminal Justice and Applied Social & Political Science at Coppin State University, who says the culture of law enforcement needs to change to regain the trust of the populace.

Also in attendance at the vigil were family members of nearly two dozen people killed by police across the country who traveled to Seattle to urge police reform, an issue renewed by protests against the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
