约旦, 俄亥俄州, called for an amendment to the bill during a meeting of the House Judiciary Committee. He condemned Democrats’ rhetoric surrounding law enforcement in the face of heightened tension.
Demings, D-Fla., called Jordan’s amendment “completely irrelevant.” The Florida Democrat said she’d served as a law enforcement officer for 27 年份.
“It is interesting to see my colleagues on the other side of the aisle support police when it is politically convenient to do so. Law enforcement officers risk their lives every day, they deserve better,” Demings said.
Jordan then tried to interject. “I have the floor, 先生. 约旦!” Demings exclaimed.
“Did I strike a nerve?” she shouted. “Law enforcement officers deserve better than to be utilized as pawns! And you and your colleagues should be ashamed of yourselves!”
