This is the September 19, 2019 "Oversight Hearing on Policing Practices," held before the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Jerrold Nadler: "Today's hearing furthers our Committee's longstanding commitment to conducting meaningful oversight of State and Federal law enforcement, as initiated by former Chair Goodlatte and his establishment of the bipartisan Policing Strategies Working Group. Together, we have had productive conversations about improving relations between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve, and today we continue that important discussion. [...] There have been [...] a disturbing number of incidents of excessive force used by police against civilians--many of whom were unarmed, most of whom were people of color, and many of which resulted in tragic death--that have put incredible strain on the relationships between law enforcement and their local communities." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gwen Carr, Ronald Davis, Patrick Yoes, Al Sharpton, Gina Hawkins, Heather Mac Donald, Phillip Atiba Goff, and Lynda Garcia.
