U.S. Senator Tim Scott said he’s hopeful an agreement on police reform will be reached but vowed that any final accord wouldn’t “demonize” the police, including allowing individual officers to be sued in civil cases.

“That is dead-stop not going to happen, can’t happen,” Scott, a Republican from South Carolina, said on “Fox News Sunday.”
