Executive Order on Police Does Not Address Problems in the Criminal Justice System | Amnesty International USA

This order does nothing to address real and serious problems in the U.S. criminal justice system. Relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve could instead be improved by investing in reform of the criminal justice system and better training for officers. Police already have laws protecting them, but there is no federal standard for the prosecution of officers who unlawfully kill civilians. Implementing a standard for lethal force in line with international standards will protect both police and civilians.”
