It’s official! Today during a live press conference, President Joe Biden signed an order reforming federal police practices and creating a national database on police offenses. “This decree provides for the most significant police reform in decades. It applies directly, according to the law, to only 100,000 federal law enforcement officers, all federal law enforcement officers, ”said President Biden. “Through federal incentives and best practices that join it, we expect the order to have a significant impact on state and local law enforcement.”

To simplify the order, The hill reports that federal officers will be banned from using suffocation unless lethal force is allowed, and the transfer and purchase of military equipment by local police departments will be restricted. As well as limiting the circumstances in which federal law enforcement can use warrants without knocking, which would prevent another death such as Breona Taylor.

In addition, the measure will provide some federal grants for state and local police departments, which will depend on the availability of proper accreditations. Although the order comes the day after Tragedy in Uwald, Texas, it’s also important because today marks two years since George Floyd was assassinated by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.

Reverend Al Sharpton, Jana Floyd and other members of the Floyd family attended the conference. The live broadcast was able to capture the moment when Jana sat down at the same place where President Biden sat down to sign the order. He allowed the child to behave as if she herself were signing the order. Collaborators, leave a comment and let us know your thoughts on the timing of the order.
