WKOW: "Law enforcement accused of having double standard during Capitol attack, BLM protests"

Booker says Wednesday proved that police are capable of the restraint necessary to avoid brutality.
"They know how to deal with aggression and violence without shooting anyone," he said. "They've always known how to. They pick and choose who they're going to do that with."
Booker says the answer lies not in different training for police officers, or anything like that -- he says it's deeper.
"The white people who said that they're allies or co-conspirators, it's in their court," he said. "It's up to them to hold their family members or their coworkers... those are the people that they need to be checking and need to be talking to and opening those conversations on, because honestly those people are not going to be listening to me."
