In the aftermath of the verdict in the George Floyd murder case and the conviction of police officer Derek Chauvin, this week on CURE America with Star Parker, we have an in-depth discussion about police reform as the topic is being debated in the United States Senate. Our friend, Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina, offered reform legislation last year and got shut down by the Left. The outright hatred toward Senator Scott after his compelling response to President Joe Biden’s address to Congress shows how divided our country is today.
Our show, Police Reform: Qualified Immunity or Accountability, addresses this divide and features an august panel including a constitutional attorney and two former police officers, Jason Johnson, President of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, and Reverend Charles McNeil, Pastor of Unity Baptist Church in Washington, D.C discussing the issues. Both have seen first-hand the difficulties of the job and have some compelling solutions to offer in this important debate. Pastor McNeill is part of CURE’s Clergy Network and had some powerful insights regarding the dilemma we face in our country over-policing, race, and responsibility.
With our special guest, Clark Neily of the Cato Institute, we delve into the issue of qualified immunity in which police officers who commit wrongful acts may receive immunity because of this law.
Are today’s police receiving proper training? Do police unions have too much power?
The conversation is lively and very timely as the police reform debate gets underway in the Senate. As always, we cut through the noise of the news to find the truth.
