Congress cannot continue to pretend that police shootings of minority citizens is not a problem. George Representative Hank Johnson (D) let congress know how shameful its response to the problem has been when he read the names of recent victims to them.

“Despite bipartisan, nationwide calls for action; and despite my bills to reform the broken grand jury process, hold police accountable, and end militarization; and despite my colleagues’ bills to encourage body cameras, this Congress does nothing,” said Johnson. “No hearings, no blue ribbon commissions, no nothing.”
