‘Not just a tragedy, a crime’, George Floyd buried

George Floyd has been buried in Houston, where he was born, two weeks after his death in Minneapolis police custody sparked worldwide protests. 

Floyd’s death, after an officer who has now been charged with second-degree murder knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes, has triggered a US-wide debate on the future of law enforcement.

Both Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and President Trump, a Republican, say they oppose defunding the police, although they have sharply different views on what the future of policing in the US should look like.
