He then talked about some of the Executive Order's highlights- The establishment of a national database of police officers with problematic records.

"There's also nothing on national standards on deadly use of force". "We will be looking at the use of chokeholds".

Among other changes, the order would use financial incentives to encourage police to adopt co-responder programs, in which social workers respond alongside police to nonviolent calls involving mental health, addiction and homelessness.

The commitment Trump referred to was to make sure there's justice for each case, Smith said. "He did assure each family member that we- we would and should expect change".

Cooper-Jones said the executive order was a positive step, although she doesn't believe it goes far enough, and it doesn't address the circumstances that led to her son's death.

"We must build upon our heritage, not tear it down", said the 45th President of the United States and 2nd President of the rebel Confederacy, Donald J (Jefferson Davis) Trump. "I can never imagine your pain or the depth of your anguish, but I can promise to fight for justice for all of our people".

The White House has signaled President Donald Trump would not endorse ending what is known as the qualified immunity doctrine.

After George Floyd's killing tensions flared again after the death in Atlanta, Georgia, of African-American Rayshard Brooks who police said was shot in the back as he ran from officers. "We need to bring law enforcement and communities closer together, not to drive them apart", Trump said. "Making matters worse, this administration wants to give more resources to a system that has proven to be abusive and fatal to Black people". Activists have regarded this executive order as a failure to address racism exhibited and reinforced by law enforcement. Before Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) was elected to the House in 2016, she was the first woman police chief for the Orlando Police department.

"We must build on our heritage, not tear it down", he said. "The only path forward is real structural reform, including true accountability".

More sweeping overhauls to the nation's policing are under consideration in Congress. One of the men charged with Arbery's murder was a former police officer. "For decades there have been plenty of conversations about balancing the scales of justice and finally those conversations are turning into real actionable solutions".

"There's nothing there regarding racial profiling, and as we know this is the most persistent problem we've been having with police and the African American Community".

"Reducing crime and raising standards are not opposite goals", he said before signing the order flanked by police.

Trump's frequently lukewarm attempts to express empathy for the fear and powerlessness that many black Americans say they feel on a daily basis when encountering police left a vacuum that his Democratic opponent Joe Biden is seeking to fill.
