Demonstrators across the nation declared in one voice that "Black Lives Matter," demanding criminal justice reform at the federal level. The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act was the House's response.

An overdue package of reforms, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (HR 1280) makes police more accountable, reforming qualified immunity, creating a national registry of police misconduct, prohibiting racial profiling, banning no-knock warrants in drug cases, banning excessive force, incentivizing the banning of chokeholds and carotid holds, and requiring the use of body cameras, but forbidding the use with those cameras of facial recognition technology.

The bill also demilitarizes police by banning the transfer to police from the federal government of various types of military weaponry.

The Democratic Party has promised this. The voters have given the Democrats the White House and majorities in both houses of Congress. Those majorities don't last long, especially if they aren't put to use.

Now is the time for action. If the U.S. Congress believes that black lives matter, lawmakers must show it now.
