Noting the historically contentious relationship between Black communities and law enforcement,Attorney General Loretta Lynch discussed how Sandra Bland’s death is a prime example of the concern that police encounters will end fatally.
During interviews with MSNBC and ABC, set to air Monday, Lynch said that what she hopes will come from Bland’s arrest and death is a real conversation and reform of policing tactics.
“The one thing that has come out of this tragic, tragic situation — the loss of life of this young woman — has been a discussion about specific police techniques.” she told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “Many of the things that we see police departments doing across the country, frankly, is working on exactly the type of techniques that would have been helpful here. As part of my community policing tour, I’ve talked to officers who have said, one of things that they have appreciated most is training in de-escalation tactics, to sort of get away from the classic let’s just stop and arrest or chase and arrest, and figure out how can we calm a situation down.”
