Jun 11: Most Americans back police reforms including bans on chokeholds and racial profiling, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. The Republican-led Senate Armed Forces Committee votes in favor of a proposal written by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) seeking to require the Pentagon to strip military bases of Confederate names, monuments, and symbols within three years. Moderna’s phase three vaccine tests are set to begin. The Louisville, Kentucky, Metro Council votes unanimously to ban the type of no-knock search warrants that police were using when they fatally shot Breonna Taylor. The Trump campaign requirs anyone wishing to attend a rally agree not to sue the campaign or the venue if they contract COVID-19. Trump praises the National Guard’s use of tear gas and other forceful measures to disperse Minneapolis crowds protesting police brutality against African Americans. Trump, speaking at a race roundtable at a Dallas church, describes the effort to quell protest a “beautiful scene” where the National Guard walked through “like a knife cutting butter.” He says the work of confronting bigotry would “go quickly and it’ll go very easily” provided we avoid “falsely labeling tens of millions of decent Americans as racist or bigots.”

BREAKING: Metro council has passed Breonna’s law here in Louisville, which is now a TOTAL BAN on no knock warrants. Body cam videos are required to be on 5 minutes before and after the search. Anyone who violates it, will be subject to disciplinary action. @WHAS11 #nightteam pic.twitter.com/xkIWDnwrnh— Jessie Cohen (@jessiecohennews) June 11, 2020
