Democrats Introduce Significant Police Reform Legislation

Summary from the AllSides News Team

A coalition of the Congressional Black Caucus, House Judiciary Committee Democrats and Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) led the introduction of legislation Monday aimed at increasing transparency and accountability within police departments and police affairs nationwide. Reporting throughout the spectrum focused on the specifics of the bill, including provisions to limit the use of lethal force and implement a national registry tracking police misconduct. Coverage from right-rated outlets framed rising "defund the police" movements as misguided, and criticized Democratic leaders who were supposedly sidestepping questions on the matter.
