Sen. Cory Booker on unchecked bias in policing and his push for reform (FULL STREAM 6/4)

Thousands of protestors in at least 140 cities across the country have poured into the streets to demonstrate against police brutality and racial injustice following the death of George Floyd in police custody. While many of the protests have been peaceful, the destruction of property and looting have led to curfews in major cities and the deployment of The National Guard in more than two dozen states.

On Thursday, June 4 at 9:00 a.m. ET, Washington Post Live hosted Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), former mayor of Newark and former Democratic presidential candidate. Booker will discuss the lack of accountability and unchecked bias in policing and his push for a holistic set of reforms to address broader systemic racism in America with Washington Post national political reporter Bob Costa.
