US President Donald Trump intends to launch several reform initiatives in the US police, NBC television reported, citing sources in the head of state’s administration.
These are both legislative initiatives and direct directives from the head of state.
Among the proposals discussed are the creation of a database of police officers who have abused their positions, as well as changes in the tactics used by law enforcement officers, informs “Focus”.
According to an NBC source, there is still no consensus on whether to ban police from using suffocating grips.
The need for police reform in the United States began to be discussed after the mass protests caused by the death of African-American George Floyd. He was detained by police on May 25 on suspicion of using counterfeit banknotes.
During the arrest, one of the officers pressed Floyd to the ground, placing a knee on his neck, ignoring his words that he could not breathe. Floyd later died in hospital.
Mass protests began in Minneapolis shortly after Floyd’s death and spread rapidly to other major cities in the United States, as well as in Europe, where citizens began protesting against racism in general.
