CINCINNATI – Ahead of the House vote on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020, Democratic candidate for Congress, Kate Schroder, issued the following statement:

“It’s long past time that we take meaningful action to bring accountability and reform to policing. While I don’t support defunding the police, we must raise standards to combat racist practices in policing and reduce violence, including by banning no-knock warrants and chokeholds, establishing a national registry of police misconduct maintained by the Department of Justice, and reforming qualified immunity.

“I urge Congress to pass the Justice in Policing Act, which is a strong first step towards necessary reforms. We must continue to work for justice for Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Elijah McClain, and the countless other victims of police violence.”
