Reactions Follows As President Trump Orders Investigation Into The killing Of Floyd George
Few days ago the entire world was thrown into ravaging scene when the video of George Floyd surfaced the social Media, sparking anger, being cruelly maltreated and killed by five Minnesota police officers.
The police officer was seen brutally kneeling on Floyd’s neck with all his might, Floyd who was already hand cuffed, and in the video Floyd can be heard screaming loudly “I can’t breathe”!, but it fell into deaf ears as the police officer continued kneeling on his neck with his hands in his pocket.
As a result of such maltreatment suffered in the hands of these officers, Floyd gave up.
Since the incident, there has been a world wide protest against police brutality and murder of Floyd, some of which have become violent.
However, the five officers involved have been relieved of their duties, It was gathered that President Donald Trump have waded fully into the situation and has ordered the FBI and DoJ to begin a thorough investigation on the incident and he promised justice for Floyd.
Trumps tweet reads;
“At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation as to the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd….”
“….I have asked for this investigation to be expedited and greatly appreciate all of the work done by local law enforcement. My heart goes out to George’s family and friends. Justice will be served!”
Remember when Joe Biden said “if you are not voting for me, then you ain’t black”, a statement that caused furious remarks from the black community in the US, this might be yet another chance for President Trump to act in a way that would further keep him to the hearts of millions of black Americans.
