After the jury ruled that former city police Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd, the U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland launched a major investigation into the actions of the Minneapolis police.
Garland said at a press conference that the investigation will “determine whether the Minneapolis police used excessive force, including the use of force during protests.”
When it comes to race relations and criticism of the treatment of African Americans by police, this ruling is a turning point in America’s tense history.
Garland has previously stated that resolving police misconduct will be his top priority.
President Joe Biden believes that Chauvin’s condemnation is a “big step” the United States has taken towards justice.
The Department of Justice has launched an investigation to investigate whether the officers involved in Freud’s death violated his civil rights.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday cancelled a policy proposed by former President Donald Trump that restricted the tools the federal government can use to monitor and investigate police misconduct.
