Ohio Police Reform Proposals
Spurred by protests after the death of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, Ohio's governor and attorney general last week unveiled reforms for police in Ohio, including a ban on chokeholds in most cases and a requirement that new recruits undergo psychological evaluation. Critics say it doesn't do nearly enough to address the root problem -- racism in the ranks. We'll discuss with Attorney General Dave Yost. A bit later, we'll invite Ohio House Minority Leader Emilia Sykes, who has said that the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus was not consulted.
