(ReliableNews.org) – The Democratic Party was hoping to put a police reform on President Joe Biden’s desk by May 25, the anniversary of George Floyd’s death. That didn’t happen. It seems that the Left’s demands are holding up the bill.
Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) has been negotiating with Democrats on the bill. On May 24, he said he was hopeful that legislation would go to Congress eventually but said they are continuing to “work on the process.”
NEW: @SenatorTimScott says he sees "the end of the tunnel" as police reform negotiations continue.
Does not see a deal being reached this week but says there was good progress made over the weekend

According to reports, the Left’s demands for qualified immunity reform (a legal provision that protects individual officers from lawsuits for actions while on duty), a national registry of “bad cops” and other radical policies are a no-go for Republicans. It seems the Democratic Party views police reform as a way to punish officers, while the GOP wants to strengthen police forces.
Scott is still hopeful something will pass, it seems the only way that will happen is if Dems stop their witch hunts on the police.
