Following the protests of perceived policing injustices across the nation, US President Barack Obama has asked the Congress to fund $263m to improve police training, install body cameras to reinstate faith in the police. “This is not a problem just of Ferguson, Missouri. This is a national problem, Mr Obama said. “But it’s a solvable problem.”
Protests and mass walkout spread across the US, after a grand jury failed to charge a white police man for the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man. Several protests were held by students and residents to raise attention to this issue.
The President further added that he had asked federal agencies for suggestions to assure that the training programme is not developing a “militarised culture” in local police forces. Sana Warsia – NMTV News.
