On Wednesday President Trump announced that he has ordered the Department of Justice and FBI to conduct an investigation into the death of George Floyd.
As protest continue in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, the DOJ and FBI will be looking into the incident.
Floyd died after being held down by three officers with one officer pushing his knee into Floyd’s neck.
“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,”

The four officers who were involved in the incident have all been fired. The officers argue that Floyd was resisting arrest but video footage shows that Floyd was cooperating with police.
