Floyd killing has prompted state reforms, but not everywhere

The conviction in the George Floyd killing has renewed calls for policing reforms and changes to address racial inequities. Some states have responded with wide-ranging proposals, while changes elsewhere have been non-existent or incremental.

A generalized states involvement is required or else, this widespread bad policing keeps escalating higher n higher! Never ending
97% of people killed by police are men. When are we going to get changes to fight this sexism?

Floyd killing has prompted state reforms, but not everywhere

Dozens of states have taken some steps to reform policing and tackle racial inequities since the killing of George Floyd, but many others have taken no action or moved in the opposite direction. By pauljweber FarnoushAmiri.

pauljweber FarnoushAmiri We're really getting tired of your editorials in what are supposed to be news articles! 'Racial inequities' in this lead should be 'alleged racial inequities'. That you let this slide by shows either 1) an obvious bias or, 2) Newbies at the newsdesk.
pauljweber FarnoushAmiri Well you must remember that we still have folks who believe that trump is still president.

Floyd killing has prompted state reforms, but not everywhere

George Floyd’s killing last year and the protests that followed led to a wave of police reforms in dozens of states. Other states have done little or nothing around police and racial justice reforms, and several have moved in the opposite direction.

What do you want the police to do AP?-Only respond to calls that involve a 'white' perp? Your constant ruse and accusations that the White American is racist and your mass production of articles involving 'white' against 'black' is a HATE inspired Agenda.Fact check=STATISTICS
that's because statistically speaking, black criminals are just as likely to be shot by police as white criminals

I will be glad when this tragedy hit these people that keep voting against police reform get hit with the tragedy that so many black and brown people have to face.
What you meant to write was George Floyd's murder last year. Convicted by a jury. Guilty. The words you choose matter.

‘Keep your hands visible’: Texas teens can’t graduate until they watch this video about police

This is ridiculous. The POLICE should get training on how not to panic and shoot black people. But that would actually require a change in mentality. Easier to put the burden on kids.
If these police don't know how to interact with the general public they all need to be fired and replaced with well-adjusted human beings.
