Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are among the Congressional Democrats putting on the circus act amid the George Floyd protests and calls for police reform. In fact, this taking of thy knee happened right before they proposed their new police reform bits.
But of course, instead of getting down to business, the Democrats love to put on a show as they’ve been known to do in the past. Remember they were all walking in a weird line for the impeachment of President Donald Trump? Or how about all the circus acts put on during the Brett Kavanaugh situation.
Typical, Democrats, right? Always need to “act” and then end up often doing nothing.
Here’s some of the information laid out more professionally by an actual journalist, of which, I am clearly not.

The Democrats unveiled their proposal, the Justice in Policing Act of 2020, on Monday after honoring Floyd’s memory with nearly nine minutes of silence.
The bill, which marks one of the most ambitious efforts in years to reform U.S. policing, would make it easier to prosecute police misconduct, prohibit choke-holds and certain no-knock warrants, in addition to creating a national registry for tracking police misconduct, according to a draft of the legislation obtained by The New York Times.
The legislation would also introduce a training program covering racial bias and duty to intervene; requiring officers to use deadly force as a last resort and rely more heavily on de-escalation techniques.
The plan was written by the Congressional Black Caucus and House Judiciary Committee, Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Cory Booker.
Oh, there’s the kicker. It was written by Democrats Kamala Harris and Cory Booker.
Were they the only two people who had any input on this?
Why can’t Republicans be part of this process?
Has anyone talked to any actual police officers to ask them how they want to be reformed? Perhaps we should ask people involved in the actual law enforcement about what could be better.
Anytime we put politicians in charge of things, they always muck it up. And to think Kamala Harris and Cory Booker are leading the way? To that, we say, no thank you!
