After many years of political theater, riots, and successful attempts to discredit state-level leadership of police departments, the left has picked up a Republican supporter for their federal power grab to federalize the police, thereby giving the feds more power more money, and more control.
Lawmakers announced Thursday that they had reached a deal on the outlines of a federal police reform measure hours before the Senate was scheduled to depart Washington for a two-week recess.
Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Tim Scott (R-SC) and Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) said in a statement that they had agreed to a framework “[a]fter months of working in good faith.”
“There is still more work to be done on the final bill, and nothing is agreed to until everything is agreed to,” the statement added. “Over the next few weeks we look forward to continuing our work toward getting a finalized proposal across the finish line.”
Scott might be a surprising addition to a team of far-left radicals like Corey Booker and Karen Bass, however there he is.
Scott had attempted to push something through one year ago, while the left successfully stopped him.
CNN reported on Scott’s 2020 Justice Act:
On Wednesday, a Republican policing reform measure collapsed in the Senate when Democrats lined up to block it after criticizing the legislation as an inadequate response to nationwide calls for action to address police misconduct and racial injustice.

The left has wanted to “reform” or federalize the police for a long time. Centralizing power and authority over United States Citizens is a large part of the utopian dreams of the left because it makes them more powerful and wealthy.
According to a press statement from Scott’s office:
U.S. Senators Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Representative Karen Bass (D-Calif.) released the following statement on the status of police reform negotiations:
“After months of working in good faith, we have reached an agreement on a framework addressing the major issues for bipartisan police reform. There is still more work to be done on the final bill, and nothing is agreed to until everything is agreed to. Over the next few weeks we look forward to continuing our work toward getting a finalized proposal across the finish line.”
The Biden administration, the most radical in American History, is pleased. That should tell people what they need to know about the direction police reform is head.
Statement by Press Secretary Jen Psaki on police reform negotiations:
"The President is grateful to Rep. Bass, Sen. Booker, and Sen. Scott for all of their hard work on police reform, and he looks forward to collaborating with them on the path ahead."

In this article, I explained how the left used and paid for riots for political theater.
