Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiPelosi says the Republican Party “is trying to get away with it” in the Trump police reform bill, the Republican clash over a new round of checks Hoyer says Democratic leaders reflected on the need for masks on the floor of the Chamber MORE (D-Calif.) He accused Republicans Tuesday of “trying to get away with it” with his police reform bill, pointing to stark differences between the plans offered by the Republican Party and Democrats in Congress.
Pelosi emphasized that the Republican bill encourages police departments to ban chokedowns rather than compel them to do so, saying that Republicans will have to add more to their bill to make it acceptable to their party.
“What the Senate did … is insurmountable,” he said on CBS Radio. “We do not say bottlenecks, they do not say bottlenecks. There is a big difference. What is the commitment? Any bottlenecks?
In other words, for something to happen, they will have to face the reality of police brutality, the manifestations of the need for justice in police action and the recognition that there are many good people in law enforcement, but not all And we have to address those concerns. When they admit it and they have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration, but until now they were trying to get away with, in reality, the murder of George Floyd. “
The push for police reform has intensified after George Floyd, an unarmed black man, was killed in Minneapolis last month by an officer who knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
Democrats and Republicans appear to be heading toward a dead end in police reform, and Democrats say they will refuse to endorse the Republican Party plan.
“There is not a great imagination about what we can be. It does not challenge us to unite. What it does is ensure that the cycle of violence in our country, the cycle of civil rights abuse, the cycle of death that so touched so many Americans will continue, “said the senator.

The two sides mainly disagree about the bottlenecks, drug-free no-touch orders, and qualified immunity, the standard that protects officers from legal liability for their actions.
Democrats want to ban chokes and no-hit orders, while the Republican plan would ban state and local law enforcement departments that don’t ban chokes from receiving critical federal grants and compel departments to report the use of orders. not to hit the attorney general at the federal level.
Democrats also want to remove qualified immunity, while Republicans say it is a poisonous pill. However, the senator Mike BraunMichael BraunPelosi Says Republican Party “Trying To Get Away” On Police Reform Bill Republican Senator Introducing Bill To Reduce Qualified Immunity For Police Republican Rift Opens About Qualified Immunity For police MORE (R-Ind.) Has filed a separate bill to provide only an officer with qualified immunity if the conduct in question “had previously been authorized or required by federal or state statutes or regulations” or if a court has determined that it is “consistent with the Constitution and federal laws.”
Pelosi touted the Democrats bill as the best placed to make significant changes to oversight and put the responsibility on Republicans to adjust their bill.
“What we have gathered in the House of Representatives will make a difference, will make a difference in justice in police action, will make a difference in reducing brutality in terms of … actions with the police, and especially in communities minority, “he said. “They are just going to have to raise their bet in terms of their sincerity and try to make a change to do a job.”
