Far-left extremist Rep. Ilhan Omar is planning to reintroduce legislation this week that would create a federal board to investigate “police brutality.”
Rep. Omar’s bill, the National Police Misuse of Force Investigation Board Act, would create an eight person board appointed by Joe Biden to investigate police use of force and issue determinations of responsibility.
Departments that do not follow orders from the board would have their federal funding cut.
The findings of the investigation and recommendations issued by this board would be admissible in criminal and civil court proceedings against the law enforcement officer, Fox News notes.
“This is going to be a proactive board that does the work on behalf of our country in trying to make sure that these agents of the law are taking their oath seriously and that the work they’re doing is work that helps communities feel safe,” Omar told KARE 11 in Minnesota.

Rep. Omar claims the board would be modeled after the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which investigates things like train and airline accidents.
“It’s an existing agency. It’s one that works,” Omar said in the Friday interview. “And we believe our criminal justice system needs an agency like that.”
Rep. Omar has been sending emails to supporters about the bill, attempting to drum up support.
“This legislation is an important step in stopping the disturbing pattern of police violence,” Omar’s campaign team wrote in soliciting support for her bill. “But we need a groundswell of grassroots support to make sure this bill becomes law.”
