Governor Baker tightens restrictions on businesses and the like for a couple of weeks starting Saturday, Triple A is predicting more than 80 million Americans will travel for Christmas despite all the warnings I'm not traveling for Christmas. Some other stories we're following for you on this Wednesday before Christmas, Governor Baker is expected to sign a bill returning to his desk that would bring landmark police reform to the state. The bill originally sought to establish the civilian led commission. To oversee officer training and certification. It would also ban the use of facial recognition software. But Governor Baker proposed amendments to those measures. He argue that law enforcement not civilian, should be doing the training. He also said that facial recognition software should still be used in certain circumstances. Well. Lawmakers reached a compromise based on those amendments from the governor, sending it back to the governor. Other measures in this bill include AH, ban on the use of choke holds a duty to intervene in the case of a fellow officer, uh, using excessive force officer misconduct. The team would have to report it or they would be culpable in liable. Other moves would address systemic racism in the system. And again, it looks like a compromise on this front. Let's go to the city of Boston, where the mayor indicates there is more to see in the case of Boston police officers appearing to joke about hitting protesters with their cruisers. Back in May, Karen Regal dug into this one. The police can. Video clips first posted on the appeal seem to show Boston police pushing and pepper spraying black lives matter. Protestors. Were in the streets after George Floyd was killed as a mayor, and I think I think our police department commissioner and people understand most people understand that there is need for us to do a better job in policing across United States of mind Well says there's not much you can say yes, but indicated there is more video to see if there was footage right before.
