Police Reform: Senate Plan Favors Police Force, House Plan Favors Civil Rights

June 17, 2020

The NAACP is using the hashtag #WeAreDoneDying in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and in protest against police brutality.

April Ryan speaks with Leon Russell, National Board Chair of the NAACP, on the necessity of both the police and police reform, understanding the racist history of the police force in America, and the NAACP takeaway from President Trump’s executive order.

The Democratic led House and Republican led Senate will try to meld two versions of police reform;  the House bill which leans pro-Civil Rights, and Senate which leans pro-police force.
