Systemic Racism (and Police Brutality)

Over the last few months, the issue of police brutality and systemic racism, and what would be best to handle these dire problems, has been a topic of interest for both candidates. Democratic nominee Joe Biden has spoken on this issue many times and has some ideas of how to fix this problem in the future, if elected:

  • Wants to revamp the national standard of what constitutes appropriate policing, and make all police depts. adopt it → form a commission to do so
  • Supports conditioning federal aid for police departments based on meeting “certain basic standards for decency and honorableness” 
  • Thinks police officers should “not only be fired but held accountable if there’s a criminal offense”
