2:13 am
of accountability, determine whether other mechanisms are needed for lawful policing. i'm not a police officer, don't know what it is like to have something like this at the forefront but from an outsider's perspective i look at this and say wise this a bad thing. on the one hand, the way they are policing, it does prove the point chauvin was a bad apple as we know but if it does find flaws it leads to room for improvement? >> absolutely agree. is someone who was a spokesperson for large national police organizations these things happen regularly especially with george lloyd. we saw statue created by congress in 1991 after rodney king which allowed for the examination of patterns practices. we see this in baltimore, chicago, ferguson. especially in a situation like this where there have been
2:14 am
complaints against the minneapolis police department and any corrections done by news organizations, something that should be done, creating peace within the community, ensuring something like george lloyd never occurs again. jillian: it could be beneficial where a lot of people say cops need better training but we need more funding so you could have an outcome that ends of making the police for stronger. >> brings us back to what senator scott said. everyone was about police reform but the democrats who chose to use it as a wedge issue, this should be a nonpartisan issue, leave politics out of it. text messaging with senator scott's chief of staff yesterday, they tell me they want to push more police reform and this is something democrats and republicans should come together on. it should be bipartisan.
2:15 am

2:16 am
dangerous city. a police officer put their lives in jeopardy when they go on these calls especially in particular neighborhoods where life-and-death is a possibility within the split-second you mentioned. to say i need to stop pursuing a suspect and call my boss, and then he calls me back and say continue to pursue, stop one minute, let me call my boss and see what he says. it is insane. we have to take politics out of policing. there is no room for it. police should be able to do their job unencumbered by those who want to handicap them and that is usually the politician. mayor lori lightfoot, provide better training for officers instead of bowing to the activists. we want everyone to be safe. police should not be violating
2:17 am
police procedure and creating misconduct situations but you have to use common sense and this is the common sense to say you should call your supervisor before pursuing a suspect. on the other hand there are times police officers called into their supervisors to see if they should continue to pursue a suspect if they are on a car chase in dangerous areas where may be the suspect hit someone could hit someone. but they will continue to pursue the suspect, until the police say stop pursuing. that is a different set of circumstances. when you are on a foot chase. >> i would imagine when you're on a foot chase like that having even if you are running to make a call taking away your distraction or focus on the job. >> not to mention putting your self in the line of danger.
