Trump Orders DOJ, FBI to Investigate George Floyd’s Death as Riots Continues

(UnitedVoice.com) – The city of Minneapolis has become a warzone as people took to the streets to violently protest. The subject? The death of George Floyd, an African-American man who died in police custody earlier this week. 

According to police, Floyd was stopped because he matched the description of someone who committed forgery at a local grocery store. He also allegedly resisted police. 

His death sparked so much national outrage that President Trump ordered the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) to expeditiously investigate the matter.
