Just as President Trump was signing his Executive Order on police reform yesterday (video below), the former DC Police Chief Charles Ramsey was praising the move saying this is “very positive and moves in the right direction.”

This had to sting CNN’s Brooke Baldwin and the anti-Trump DC Police Chief, who has been battling it out with President Trump during the riots in DC.

Ramsey told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that he believes this is a step in the right direction:

“I really didn’t expect the president to come up with some groundbreaking recommendations, quite frankly. But at least it’s a step in the right direction. Policing for the most part is done at the local and state level. So there’s a lot of work that has to be done.”

The former DC Police Chief discussed de-escalation and the chokehold with the suggestion that there should be a ban on the chokehold. Later in the interview, he defends the use of the chokehold as a last resort:

“But at least there’s some acknowledgment that you need to have a national database of some kind. There needs to be some kind of certification. We do need to take a look at having social workers and others working with police and being the lead when it comes to de-escalating situations, dealing with the issue of the use of force in terms of a chokehold.”

“They should be banned, in my opinion. But we need to look at the entire use of force continuum, including use of firearms, and tighten that up, so we can at least start a process where Republicans and Democrats can get together and come up with something.”

“And at the local, our municipal governments and so forth, working with community leaders, can actually come up with something that’s truly going to make a difference.”
