“You know, everyday, Rachel, you turn on your television and somebody else is being shot and killed on our streets, often by police,” said Susan Rice the Director of Joe Biden‘s Domestic Policy Council on MSNBC on Thursday.
Joe Biden during his state of the union address urged Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
Speaking with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on the need to pass the police reform legislation, Rice said that “it’s it’s absolutely urgent that we get real policing reform, meaningful policing reform legislation like that in George Floyds name through the House, as it has been, and now through the Senate. You know, every day, Rachel, you turn on your television and somebody else is being shot and killed on our streets, often by police. And this cannot continue. It cannot continue. So it’s not only a year on May twenty fifth from the date when George Floyd was murdered, but it is past time that there be accountability in our system, that we repair the trust between law enforcement and the people that it is meant to serve. And the legislation that is now pending before the Senate would make very important steps in that direction.”
