Nancy Pelosi blasts Senate police reform proposal

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took a major ego hit when Donald Trump issued his police reform executive order on Tuesday.

Then, Senate Republicans rolled out legislative reform on Wednesday, further infuriating Pelosi. She decided to make it clear right off the bat that she will not work with Republicans to effect legislative change, saying on Wednesday that “the Senate’s so-called Justice Act is not action.”

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the Senate’s only black lawmaker, led the formulation of the Senate’s “Justice Act.” Among legislative actions proposed by the bill are provisions that discourage and disincentivize chokeholds, increase data collection on use of  police force, make lynching a federal crime, and funding for education programs on the history of racism.

Notably, the Senate proposal specifically authorizes a social study that Pelosi herself has long championed, which would look beyond police brutality to factors such as education, health care, financial status and crime that contribute to the social status of black men and boys.

That’s just not good enough for Pelosi, who clearly believes that she must be the one that spearheads any legislative change in the way that policing is done in the US.

She issued a statement on Wednesday condemning Scott’s efforts, saying that “the Senate proposal of studies and reporting without transparency and accountability is inadequate. The Senate’s so-called Justice Act is not action.”

She continued:

In contrast, Democrats’ George Floyd Justice in Policing Act contains real, structural legal reforms to end court-created barriers to accountability, provisions for independent investigations of misconduct, increased pattern and practice investigative authority, and a transparent national registry of police misconduct that is accessible to the public.

“During this moment of national anguish, we must insist on bold change to save lives,” Pelosi said. One might have thought that sweeping bipartisan police reform would qualify as “bold change,” but if the GOP is for it, Pelosi can always be counted on to come out against it.

  1. The main reason nothing gets done by demoRats is they are all to old to think straight anymore, they have become the cantankerous old people and need to retire, get some exercise, enjoy life instead of never doing anything worthwhile, they all need to get out of office as the AMERICAN PEOPLE are tired of their do nothing TDS infections, they have completely lost their minds and their hatred for TRUMP is making the AMERICAN PEOPLE suffer the consequences of their childishly asinine hatred, TERM LIMITS ARE NECESSARY, 8 years is enough for any politician in one position and no more tax dollars after retirement, they should pay for their own protection, food, rent, cars, also if they take a day off no pay, and go on social security like all other U.S. workers have to do, forced retirement at age 65, dementia, depression at getting old, all affect their brains so they no longer are able to make rational decisions!!

  4. “During this moment of national anguish, we must insist on bold change to save lives,” Pelosi said. One might have thought that sweeping bipartisan police reform would qualify as “bold change,” but if the GOP is for it, Pelosi can always be counted on to come out against it. What about the anguish of all the parents of murdered Black men and boys in major cities across this country. Blacks killing Blacks. What can we do to stop this carnage? Is anyone going to protest these terrible deaths, let alone find solutions to combat the hopelessness of Black families living in poverty. How about assuring quality education, decent wages, community centers staffed with black men and women who have overcome and achieved “The American Dream”. If the government and regular citizens used half of their brains, I am sure many, many great workable solutions could be found. That said, blacks must meet whites in the middle and both races must take responsibility for any prior racism expressed toward the other.

  5. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, among others should hang their heads in shame for what they are doing to the American people and our Country, they need to be tried for treason and crimes against humanity among other things the Democrats want to line their pockets and to hell with the American people who voted them into office. President Trump has done a lot for our Country and the American people and could have done a lot more if the dumb assed Democrats would work with him instead of against him, I pray that come the November election that the Republicans not only keep the Senate,President Trump will win again and the Republicans take back the house . The Democrats are only worried about themselves and to hell with the American people. So people wake up and vote Republican
