House Speaker Nancy Pelosi alongside fellow House Democrats introduced a bill Monday to combat the “entrenched system” of police brutality in the wake of the tragic death of George Floyd. Before the announcement, party leaders took a knee in a minutes-long moment of silence.

“Today with the Justice in Policing Act, the Congress is standing with those fighting for justice and taking action,” Pelosi said.

“We cannot settle for anything less than transformative, structural change, which is why the Justice in Policing Act will remove barriers in prosecuting police misconduct in covering damages by addressing the quality immunity doctrine, it will demilitarize the police by limiting the transfer of military weaponry to state and local police departments, it will combat police brutality by requiring body and dashboard cameras, banning chokeholds, no-knock warrants in drug cases, and ending racial profiling. [It] will finally make lynching a federal hate crime.”

Pelosi added that the bill is merely a first step in combatting police brutality, saying that “there’s more to come.” A number of hearings are expected to also address the issue including in the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

Sara welcomes Rabbi Yaakov Menken, director of the Coalition for Jewish Values, to discuss the lack of outrage and tacit acceptance of anti-Semitic violence and targeted harassment from politicians, the media and others.

They address the violent assaults on the streets of New York City and other locations around the country , as well as the baseless New York Times attack against Hasidic schools over curriculum and COVID response. Rabbi Menken also weighs in on the idea of a two-state solution in the Middle East and the Biden administration’s pursuit of a new Iran nuclear deal.

Also, Sara takes the FBI to the verbal woodshed for sending a SWAT team after a Catholic pro-life activist who shoved a man outside an abortion clinic.
