The Democrat Party of destruction rejected a bill from Senator Tim Scott that would have improved the lives of Black Americans. Now the loathsome Democrats are about to submit an anti-police bill that will further endanger the lives of Black Americans. This is the very embodiment of the plantation Democrat Party. Keep the Black voter in perpetual distress and reliant on government intervention. That is how the Democrats maintain their stranglehold on the Black vote. It is these kinds of plantation laws that make Democrat controlled cities the most dangerous cities in America. By far. Blexit!
Democratic members of Congress are fighting a rearguard action through their dangerous Jerry Nadler-Nancy Pelosi anti-policing bill.
I will be voting NO later today.

Democrats’ anti-police bill will cripple local police and empower criminals
By Washington Examiner, June 25, 2020
It may not be a plank in the official Democratic Party platform, but it’s clear that Democrats and their supporters want to eliminate state and local police. The radical left, which now controls the Democratic Party, is making a frontal assault on the police with their calls to defund and dismantle police departments. Democratic members of Congress are fighting a rearguard action through their dangerous Jerry Nadler-Nancy Pelosi anti-policing bill.
During the hearing on the Nadler-Pelosi monstrosity, Democrats rejected every amendment offered by Republicans, even when Democrats agreed with the substance of the amendment.
Included in the Nadler-Pelosi bill was a provision that limited the sentence of a person convicted of lynching to 10 years. The Democrats doggedly fought to defeat an amendment offered by Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas that would have made lynching punishable by life imprisonment or death-penalty eligible. Nadler argued that the death penalty was barbarous. But then, so is lynching.
In an effort to ameliorate Nadler’s concerns, Gohmert proposed a change that would maximize the penalty for lynching to life in prison. Nadler and the Democrats rejected this, apparently content with the bill’s maximum of 10 years punishment for lynching.
The heart of the anti-police bill is an effort to eliminate all legal protections police officers have. Since Democrats are also attempting to bring all police power to the national government, their bill is also chock full of tactical mandates on local police departments.
A court-made rule gives police officers limited, qualified immunity for their acts. Because of language in a Supreme Court ruling, there is a need to reform immunity provisions, while protecting police. Many Democrats seemed to acknowledge the need to give some protection for officers who do not intentionally or recklessly harm a citizen but were unwilling to accept any Republican attempts to reform the immunity laws. Democrats preferred a total elimination of all legal protection to our police officers.If the Democrat bill becomes law, here is what will happen.
All police officers will be personally liable for any decision they make and for any accident they cause. Currently, officers receive internal discipline, and in cases where an officer is alleged to have committed a crime, such as the George Floyd case, the officer is subject to the civil authorities. Victims have a claim on the department in all cases.
