Lawmakers Continue Police Reform Negotiations
"May of last year, lawmakers in every state and the District of Columbia have introduced more than 3000 police reform bills. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports. That's double the number introduced in 2017. Theo U. S Department of Justice is investigating the Minneapolis police and other departments. And brought civil rights charges against Derrick Show. Vin and the other former officers involved in George Floyd's burger Cities and school districts have responded to Minneapolis public schools, joined districts across the country and cutting ties with police. And Minneapolis City Council members made headlines when they promised to defund the police. That's provocative shorthand for rerouting public safety dollars to social services that can reduce crime. And it's also something we have really heard from the general public. I asked my colleague, Minnesota public radio reporter Brandt Williams when he knew something was different. Well, I guess Anjo like many people, when I first saw that bystander video Usually there is a situation between a police officer and somebody there's a officer makes a split second decision where they fire a weapon. It's over in a second, but this happened Over nine minutes. We heard George Floyd pleading for his life, and we saw the reaction of the officer Derrick Show Vin, just not changing his expression, and he kept the pressure on. So I think that's when I knew as a boy, You know, it's gonna be really hard for this just to be pushed under the rug or just kind of forgotten about. During the next news cycle. And Brant the response from city officials that was swift as as well different than than what we've seen in the past, starting with the quick firing of officer direct Children. Right that that was different. I mean, usually there's got to be an investigation or there has to be due diligence done here before we make any disciplinary decisions. But this was the next day chief Mid Air. Arredondo came right out and said that this officer is no longer A member of the Minneapolis Police Department, and he fired the other three officers involved as well.

"I do feel like You could sort of right this report already given what we know and given its brand said that there have been these earlier Kind of consensual reports where that department has asked the doj to come in and write reports specifically on issues like conduct and handling of the occupation of the fourth precinct. Jomar clark's filling So i i think the department has really taken to heart a lot of the kind of training principles that were embedded in the task force report on twenty first century policing released under the obama administration. You know they do de escalation training. They do mental health training. They do Implicit bias training. And you could see all of that. Come up during the show van trial as the department distance itself from him right saying he had completed all of these trainings. We were sort of doing best practices to see in fact that just interrupting for second there. Were you surprised to see the department's testimony in the chauvin trial. You know not in particular. I mean i think the department really from the days following the murder. That apartment had really distanced itself from Shelvin in a way that i think kind of prefigured what was going to happen in that courtroom and so i think part of the way to read what happened in the courtroom was that apartment trying to vindicate itself And to say that right chauvin wasn't outlier. He's not representative of the department which was a narrative explicitly embraced by the prosecution. But i think we're the department hasn't made as much progress or has really been blocked in part by the union as we were talking about before is in really responding to officer misconduct and really having a process where community members are involved and have real oversight and power over the discipline and firing of officers. And i think without that. It's really hard to rebuild community trust because there isn't the sense that officer misconduct when they violate the policies of the department will actually face any kind of accountability.

"Look at some of those past Officer involved killings andbranch just wondering if the minneapolis police department has said anything about this investigation or have they just Not issued any statement so far. Well yeah the. The police department issued a statement including a reaction from chief arredondo. He basically expressed support for it. I i've spoken with Some people who are have worked with the chief in the past they say this is something that could bolster his efforts to bring about a change in police culture a however we have not heard any comment from the police federation as michelle. What type of. I mean the the you've done studies on these police departments in north minneapolis in particular. How would you describe the history of the minneapolis police department and its relations with black and brown residents of the city. Sure yeah so for the past five years or so. I've been doing a study of the minneapolis. Police department looking at it from the perspective of community perceptions of the police activists demands for changes in policing And then what. The department has actually done to reform the department. And i think minneapolis is more typical of american cities in some ways than it is atypical and that the problems in minneapolis. I think our nationwide. So since two thousand and fifteen the department has actually been pretty aggressively involved in a lot of the kinds of best practices police reforms That have been suggested by things like consent decrees through the doj program and yet they have also had this continuing series of high profile. Police killings And more routine sort of day to day harassment of residents particularly back black and indigenous residents. And so there's a long history in minneapolis. Both of Police misconduct and police abuse of police reform and activism to change policing michelle. This is supposed to be a pattern or practice investigation. What do we know about these types of investigations. So these types of investigations were relatively common under the obama administration and then petered out during the trump administration. They you know at their height are still touching only a handful of departments. There's eighteen thousand police departments nationwide. And so you can really only respond to kind of the the the most high profile cases and cities. But i think what the pattern and practice investigations allow us to do is to as The attorney general said to really get at these more systemic issues rather than these one off cases and try to see. What's under girding those problems. And ideally i think the the model was that some of the forms and consent decrees that came out of this process could be applied to other places. Right could be that same. Package of reforms could be implemented in other kinds of cities. And i think one of the concerns activists have today is whether the return of these pattern and practice. Investigations will help to or will Block efforts to really reimagine policing and kind of move away from Police reform and towards really thinking about alternative systems of public safety..

If it's anything like the military that the senior officer is always in charge, So a senior officer was Jovan or the goddess that killed the black guy that was on the ground. He's the one that should take all the pressure from the simple reason the other three in experienced officers were doing as they were told in the military when you're told to advantage on the hill or or go after the enemy, or whatever it is that you're told Kate You're told to do that by an officer. Well, it turns out that the officer is wrong. There's never been a prosecution for the soldiers other than officers killing that, they're told do because they were ordered.

"It touched off a convulsive period in the United States and reignited debates over race and justice and policing in America. The N B A. And the NBA Players Association just released a statement saying George Floyd's murder was a flash point for how we look at race and justice in our country, and we are pleased that the justice appears to have been served. Statement from the MBA and its players moments ago, reacting to the guilty verdict against Derek Sheldon guilty as charged in the death of George Floyd. Dr Leah Wright rigueur is joining us from Harvard University and she's an ABC news contributor. When we speak of race and justice, many of these issues are unresolved, but The reaction to the verdict, at least outside the courthouse, and that's coming in on social media seems to think that this might be a turning point in the country. Well, I think the important thing here is that it has to be a turning point. And so I think most people are feeling a mixture of release on relief and also uneasiness. Because we know that this is a moment that is is about justice. But it's just one tiny little moment. It's essentially a blip in the radar, and it took The largest mass movement for black lives that the nation of the world has ever seen. 30 million people over the course of 10 months to get one conviction. One conviction for justice, the likes of which is normally not been seen. And so the question right now is where do we go from here? So we have just one individual case. But what it tells us is that there's certainly possibility and that the movement has done something. It is accomplished something and that it's a moment where there is possibility for something different for something much bigger for something far more transformative and imaginative if we can come together as a country and actually moved the ball forward, so it's not simply Just this one moment. It's about something much bigger than this. And yet we know that there has been a reaction from from George Floyd's family through their attorney, Ben Crump, to say this was painful justice. It has not been easy to get even this Absolutely, And I mean it was the biggest. I think the overarching thing is that George Floyd's still isn't here. He's not here. He's not coming back. So when we talk about justice, how do we talk about justice? Indicate case that is about the death. The murder of you know, a murder of a man at the hands of the police officer at the hands of the institution. You can't bring him back even that settlement money. Is bitter, sweet justice because it doesn't bring someone back. It also doesn't solve the problem right, so it may take accounting for the symptoms of the larger problem. It may say. Here's some, you know, Here's some measure of relief. But it doesn't solve the deep rooted problem. And we saw that in that Minneapolis Minneapolis Police Department, the Brooklyn Division of the minute, Minneapolis Police Department shot and killed a man While this trial was ongoing, so again, this is bittersweet. It is a moment certainly, And it is a moment of justice. But that doesn't bring back George Floyd. And it certainly doesn't change the way that we understand policing in this country or the way that police have going now we need far far farm or structural change and attention to that kind of structural change. ABC News contributor. Doctor Leah, right regard. Joining us from Harvard are thanks to you after Derek Sylvan was found guilty as charged in the death of George Floyd still, as she notes, leaving questions about race and justice and policing iniquities in the United States unresolved, but for this moment Feeling of jubilation has taken over in Minneapolis, where George Floyd died 11 months ago, ABC Smart Ray Malard is there and with an ever growing crowd outside the courthouse mark That's right, Erin. The crowd continues to grow its spilled out into the street from the lawn of the courthouse, which is a good size lawn. Um, you know, a city block wide lawn that has now expanded this crowd has gone from there. Get right into the middle of the street in front of this courthouse. It does appear that they've set up a loud speaker on a car in the middle. So we made get some people here who will be speaking and addressing. Some of the crowd here. I'm not sure exactly who but more people continue to arrive here and I think that's going to continue, especially a zoo. The word of this spread that more people in this area come to realize that this verdict has come down and particularly the way it came down. They may come here to join in. But so far is a is a festive and celebratory crowd. Hoping it stays that way. Members of the National Guard, of course, and police agencies, not just there in Minneapolis, but but all over the country, a BCS Alex Stone has been Taking all this in from his position in downtown Los Angeles. Any sign of demonstrations there yet, Alex? Nothing that that we're seeing here right now. But you know what really struck me as the verdict was coming down Was all of the cars going by on this Warm Los Angeles Day just like so many days are here. 80 degrees right now and The windows that were down and car after car had that the radio blaring with the verdict coming down, reminding me of so many of the big trials that we have covered over the years that there was so much attention even here, 2000 miles away from Minneapolis. There has been so much focus here. Remember back to last summer when there were large demonstrations and it got quite violent here in Southern California, where people were looting and fires were said in the National Guard had to move in. And that has been the big concern about what could unfold here tonight. At Florence and Normandie. And about an hour there's a planned demonstration, Reginald Denny going back Todt King. And in that case, famous intersection from there. We're beginning to hear that we're gonna hear from the mayor of L A and about now are calling for calm. Here in Grand Park, where I am right now in downtown L. A religious leaders are supposedly going to be gathering here in the next little while that call for calm this evening is well with this verdict. It seems like that it would be more of a celebratory situation in the city. Just like many cities around the country tonight, if anything does go on. The police aren't taking any chances they've got they've gone on a tactical alert as they call them. Long Beach to south of here just declared one for this evening where officers said they don't go off of their shifts tonight until they're told they could go home to make sure that they're covered as this night goes on. A B C S Alex Stone with us live from downtown Los Angeles, as he says many people tuning in on their on their car radios to hear the verdict as they make their way around and are now some celebrating with those in Minneapolis. Others questioning how a police officer could be convicted in this case, as the defense put it. The officer's actions were reasonable, given the totality of circumstances. But the jury the ones whose opinions truly matter here, found unanimously that Eric Shelvin murdered George Floyd in May of last year, and now he will pay the price. His sentencing will be about eight weeks from now. We'll get you the exact dates when we have the many faces up to 40 years, although most experts think it'll be closer to 15 when he is ultimately sentenced The verdict, according to the governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, is an important step forward for justice in the state. But the governor statement says the work has just begun. The world watched on May 25th 2020, the governor said, is George Floyd died with a knee on his neck for nearly nine minutes. Thousands of Minnesota's marched in the streets last summer and inspiring a movement around the globe. And while many of these people never met George, they valued his humanity. They knew what happened was wrong. And the governor says they called for change and they demanded justice. Justice now is in the form of guilty verdicts for officer Derrick Show Vin guilty as charged, and the governor statement said accountability in the courtroom is only the first step.

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes.

Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.
