time. >> good morning, i'm laura jarrett, it's thursday, april 22nd, 5:00 a.m. here in new york. for nearly a year we have talked about a reckoning on racism and policing in this country but what has really changed? the conviction of former officer who killed george floyd, derek chauvin, sparking renewed calls by some for reform. pleas that complied account daily reminders of why black communities feel unsafe. andrew brown jr. fatally shot while deputies in elizabeth city, north carolina, were serving a warrant on thursday morning. >> the deputy is on administrative leave now. there is body cam footage that has not yet been released. >> we are not going away until we get some cooperation, until we get some transparency. what are they hiding? we are feeling pain right now. we are hurting. we are tired. we are tired. >> it happened a day after a black teenage girl was shot and killed in columbus, ohio. body cam footage appears to show
2:02 am
ma'khia bryant lunging at another girl with a knife, but the question is whether the officer arriving at the scene needed to shoot her or could have disarmed her another way. he has been side if i had as nicholas reardon. >> bottom line, did ma'khia bryant need to die yesterday? how did we get here? this is a failure in part on our community, some are guilty, but some of us are responsibility. also today the funeral for daunte wright the 20-year-old shot by now former brooklyn center minnesota officer during a traffic stop, police claimed she thought she was firing her taser and with emotions on edge two high profile athletes under criticism this morning, brett favre for saying it's, quote, hard to believe derek chauvin meant to kill george floyd. and lebron james who tweeted then deleted a picture of a man
2:03 am
some identified on social media as the columbus officer who killed ma'khia bryant with the line, quote, you're next, #accountability. >> the minneapolis police department is pledging to cooperate with a newly announced justice department civil rights investigation. a senior doj official says a civil rights division team is on the ground as the biden administration intensifies its scrutiny of police practices. cnn's josh campbell has the latest for us from minneapolis. >> reporter: the biden administration apparently signaling that they will not hesitate to use the federal department of justice in order to investigate any police agency that may be accused of engaging in a pattern and practice of violation of civil rights. on wednesday attorney general merrick garland announcing the doj would do just that as it relates to the minneapolis police department. >> the challenges we face are deeply woven into our history. they did not arise today or last year. building trust between community
2:04 am
and law enforcement will take time and effort by all of us. good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust. >> reporter: and we know in the united states there is no national police force, police agencies fall under state and local control, butt the federal government has the ability to launch these civil investigations if they determine a problem possibly exists. what we're expecting are lawyers from the doj to descend here in minneapolis, they will have the ability to interview members of the community, they will be able to interview people who may have encountered law enforcement, they will be able to talk to police officers themselves and go through this department's files, its arrest records and the like. once again try to get to the conclusion of whether this department is engaging in a pattern and practice of the violation of civil rights. now, of course, that officer who brought the latest scrutiny on this police department, derek chauvin, was convicted on all three counts here, on tuesday,
2:05 am
for his part we are expecting his sentencing will take place approximately eight weeks from now. he is currently in solitary confinement according to prison officials that due to his own safety they say and of course the other three officers also charged in the death of george floyd, their trial is set to begin in august, we will wait to see whether they will also be convicted in this trial, this case that has been watched around the world. christine, laura. >> josh campbell, thank you for that. will washington finally do something big on police reform in the united states? the political hurdles are clear, but for many there is no time to waste. cnn's daniella diaz is on capitol hill for us this morning. dan daniella, after the jury convicted chauvin this week there seemed to be some chatter suggest that go that verdict could reduce the urgency of reforms on capitol hill. what are you hearing? >> reporter: i mean, it certainly seems that way, laura, that because derek chauvin was found guilty this week democrats breathed -- all breathed a sigh of relief that they didn't have
2:06 am
to work alone on this issue. but right now there is still some differences that democrats and republicans have that they need to reconcile to be able to agree on police reform legislation, but it's moving ahead. you know, they can't seem to agree this major sticking point being qualified immunity for police officers. qualified immunity gives civil lawsuit protections to police officers and is a major sticking point for democrats and republicans. on one hand you have senator tim scott who is the leading republican on this issue in the senate, he is from south carolina, he said he is proposing shifting the burden of responsibility from individual police officers to share police department. this is something he has proposed to democrats. and then on the other hand you have karen bass, house democrat and former congressional black caucus chairwoman who wants this to go further, she wants more to be addressed -- wants police qualified immunity to go further and it be addressed further.
2:07 am
democrats and republicans will be to reconcile their differences on this issue, that is what we're watching this week to see if they can agree on legislation that they can get republicans to sign on in the senate. karen bass is optimistic, she has shared -- she was on cnn yesterday and shared that she is hopeful that republicans and democrats in the state can sign on to this legislation and agree with her on how this legislation should look like. here is what she had to say. >> well, absolutely we will, and i think with the leadership of tim scott and cory booker, i think the stage is set for us to do that. we've had very fruitful conversations, i know that senator scott is an honest broker, he is serious about getting something done and he is also committed to working with his colleagues and bringing those republican votes. i can't bring the republican senators along, but i do have confidence that if they will follow tim scott's lead that we will be able to get the votes we
2:08 am
need in the senate. >> you know, as the leading house democrat on this issue she seems very optimistic that she can agree on legislation with senator tim scott the republican on this issue. first sign of bipartisanship. we haven't seen in a long time in the senate and the house. but bottom line is they're going to have to work together to try to pass police reform legislation right now that they have the momentum after derek chauvin's guilty verdict. laura? >> daniella, thank you so much. all right. to oklahoma now where lawmakers have passed a new law protecting drivers who claim they accidentally ran over protesters. governor kevin stitt signing a bill wednesday that drivers cannot be held criminally liable for unintentionally hitting or killing protesters while the drivers are fleeing from a riot. it also makes obstructing a public street during the course of a protest a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in
