WI Senate Moves Ahead with Police Reform

The Wisconsin Senate is approving a bill that would prohibit police from using chokeholds in most situations. 

The Senate today voted to ban chokeholds except when police are defending themselves or are in a life-threatening situation.  Other Wisconsin departments have enacted similar policies.  Supporters of the bill say it’s a step towards having a consistent policy statewide, while opponents say there should be a total ban.
