Democratic lawmakers unveiled a new proposal for police reform across the country. It would ban the use of chokeholds, increase racial and implicit bias training, and create a federal registry of police misconduct. This plan comes after the Minneapolis City Council vowed to dismantle the local police department. Also, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti also announced he plans to cut $150 million from LAPD’s annual budget.
