One thing Congress can do right now is require, mandate, body cameras for every law enforcement officer in this country. And provide the funding to purchase this vital equipment. No excuses. For officers who do the right thing day in and day out, which is the vast majority of our men and women in blue, they will be protected from false allegations and threats. But for those who do not, we will have a record of it. Sadly, it has taken the advent of the camera phone to bring actions like the killing of George Floyd to light and requires us to ask, how many have gone unseen.
Let’s do this now. It’s only a first step but we have to start the journey toward reconciliation and healing.”
