There is much talk these days about abolishing police departments-mostly in Blue cities run by Democrats for decades. Democrats in Congress have brewed a collection of liberal ideas into a bill they call "Justice in Policing Act of 2020." Judicial Watch has reviewed the proposed legislation and offers the following analysis of it:
- The police reform bill introduced by Democrats in Congress empowers leftist groups such as the open borders National Council of La Raza (NCLR) to monitor cops nationwide and creates development and training programs based on an Obama initiative to hire minority police officers by disregarding the criminal records of candidates from "underrepresented communities" and lowering standards on written exams. Known as the Task Force on 21st Century Policing, the Obama plan is repeatedly cited in the new bill's 134-page text and promotional material and clearly serves as a key model.
We have our doubts much that is in this bill will ever see the light of day. This issue is burdened with the simple fact that much of law enforcement is a local duty, run by cities, towns and counties. It is unclear how the proponents propose to enforce the bill's mandates. Moreover, it is highly unlikely President Trump would sign such legislation. So let the sausage-making begin.
