the House of representatives approved the democratic bill on the reform of the police. The document was supported by 236 lawmakers voted against 181.
the Bill prohibits the police to use choke holds, creates a national database for tracking illegal actions by the police, and also prohibits in some cases to issue a warrant allowing police to break into the house without warning. Also increase the responsibility of law enforcement, including for acts of violence and arbitrary measures against a suspect, writes TASS.
Now the law will be sent to the Senate, where most Republicans, and in the case of support there – to the President of the United States. However, Donald trump has previously criticized the document, which, in his opinion, “will destroy the police.” The White house promised that the congressmen from the Republicans will be “hard to resist”.
