Posted in: Biden says democracy survived Capitol riot because of police See in context

Biden’s efforts to pass a police overhaul bill to tighten practices after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis collapsed, with congressional negotiators announcing in September that talks had ended without an agreement.

Floyd was a convicted felon, pushing fake twenty dollar bills, high as a kite on fentanyl and sitting behind the wheel of a car with the keys in the ignition. Don’t praise thugs.
