A ridiculously powerful image of Karl-Anthony Towns, who is still out there showing support for George Floyd despite recently losing his mother to COVID-19. He has proven to be a leader in his community and should be applauded for his tenacity and resilience. Salute, @KarlTowns. https://t.co/mvAMxglyft

The Executive Order
The executive order intends to “advance effective, accountable policing and criminal justice practices that will build public trust and strengthen public safety,” as per the White House. For the executive order to be in motion, it will require the federal law enforcement agencies to bring about several reforms and alongside develop a database of police misconduct nationwide.
I’ve called on Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, but Senate Republicans have stood in the way of progress. That’s why this afternoon, I’m taking action and signing an Executive Order that delivers the most significant police reform in decades.

“This executive order is going to deliver the most significant police reform in decades,” said President Biden.
What in the word is Joe Biden doing to this little girl??

“It applies directly, under law, to only 100,000 federal law enforcement officers, all the federal law enforcement officers. And through federal incentives and best practices that are attached to it, we expect the order to have a significant impact on state and local law enforcement agencies as well.”
