Senate Misses Deadline for George Floyd Policing Bill by Anniversary of His Death

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd who was murdered by police officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis. Chauvin who is white knelt on the neck of Floyd, who was Black and unarmed, for more than nine minutes last year. Although Chauvin was convicted, the horrific death of Floyd was not enough to motivate the Senate to pass a police reform bill in Floyd’s name by today as President Joseph Biden hoped for.
