What A Day

Police Reform And Accountability In Minneapolis

Description

Former Minneapolis police officer and convicted murderer Derek Chauvin pleaded not guilty to not one but TWO federal indictments this week in two separate instances of extreme police brutality. He’s currently serving a 22.5 year sentence at a maximum security prison outside of Minneapolis. And starting today, Minneapolis voters will decide on a measure that could reform the make-up and mission of the local police department.
Today, U.S. officials take a shot at maybe approving a booster of one of the COVID-19 vaccines. An FDA advisory committee has a hearing scheduled about the need for a third shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and it is expected to vote today.
And in headlines: health care is rationed throughout Idaho, California wildfires threaten some of the biggest trees on Earth, and France called out a new security alliance between the U.S., the U.K., and Australia.
