Representative Karen Bass (D-CA), the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, discussed legislation to address police violence and racial profiling after the death of George Floyd while in custody of Minneapolis police officers. Representative Bass said police reform legislation written by the Congressional Black Caucus would ban choke holds and include national accountability standards, which she said had the support of the Fraternal Order of Police. She also discussed the “defund the police” movement, asking “why should police officers have to clean up society’s problems?” Representative Bass said social workers may be better equipped than police to respond to certain incidents. She also responded to questions about 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s expected vice presidential pick and if she had been vetted by his campaign. close
