Biden Urges US Police Reform By Anniversary Of George Floyd Murder


“Now is our opportunity to make real progress,” Joe Biden said.


President Joe Biden called on Congress Wednesday to pass sweeping reforms to US policing by the May 25 anniversary of the killing of George Floyd, who died under a white officer’s knee last year.

“We need to work together to find a consensus. Let’s get it done next month, by the first anniversary of George Floyd’s death,” Biden told US lawmakers during a joint session of Congress.

“Now is our opportunity to make real progress,” he said, eight days after the Floyd trial ended with a murder conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
