In US news and current events today, Senator Cory Booker has been one of the leading voices in the Senate for police reform, but her GOP opponents are not going far enough with the GOP police reform bill they offered up. While Sen. Cory Booker is not calling to defund the police or abolish the police, the GOP police reform bill does not end qualified immunity and leaves many reforms at the discretion of local states and municipalities. In this video, Senator Corey Booker takes Mitch McConnell and GOP Senators to task over the police reform bill and why it's an inadequate solution for the current moment. After the police killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and countless other Black people in America, the resulting George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality, police racism, and police violence have put systemic racism in the spotlight as BLM protesters take to the streets in support of police reform, racial justice and civil rights.
