Attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci Issue Statement on George Floyd Justice in Policing Bill
Nationally renowned civil rights attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci released the following statement on the failure of the U.S. Senate to reach a deal on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act:
"On behalf of the families of George Floyd and so many others who have been impacted by police violence, we express our extreme disappointment in Senate leaders’ inability to reach a reasonable solution for federal police reform. In the last year and a half, we have witnessed hundreds of thousands of Americans urging lawmakers to bring desperately needed change to policing in this country so there can be greater accountability, transparency, and ultimately trust in policing. People - including many police leaders - have raised their voices for something to change, and partisan politics once again prevents common sense reform. We can not let this be a tragic, lost opportunity to regain trust between citizens and police. We strongly urge Democratic senators to bring the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to the floor for a vote so Americans can see who is looking out for their communities' best interests and who is ready to listen to their constituents so we can together put the country on a better, more equitable path for all."
