announcing today will assess whether the minneapolis police department engages in a pattern or practice of using excessive force including during protests the investigation will also assess whether the m.p.t. and gauges in discriminatory conduct and whether it's treatment of those with behavioral health disability is unlawful that's going to top white house correspondent committee how quiet in washington d.c. and committee seems to be a real political push now on on police reform but how difficult will it be to debate to get traction on it. well it has been challenging in the past but the biden administration believes that this time may be different given the overwhelming public support for it in the united states and even around the world that's why the biden administration has tasked the justice department you heard there from the attorney general eric garland to put in place this civil
10:03 pm
investigation into policing practices in the minneapolis police department a concern that there may be discriminatory practices when it comes to training when it comes to use of force and also when it comes to conduct so this is in addition to a criminal case that is already being investigated by the department of justice into the death of george floyd but that's just one aspect because as the vice president of the united states coming to harris said shortly after the verdict in the convictions of officer derek chauvet a measure of justice is not equal justice they want to see that this is change that is an acted all across the united states and that's why there is a renewed push on capitol hill for the george floyd justice in policing act it's already passed in the house of representatives but it needs to pass in the senate essentially what this legislation would do is it would really toughen up the
10:04 pm
a prosecutorial ability of communities and individuals to take on the very high bar of victim a police officer of wrong doing so in addition to that would also try to put in the resources to build trust between communities of color for example and law enforcement but it needs to be passed into law and so the white house feels the time is right to read new a push for this legislation seeing it passed in the senate where they have a narrow majority and then the president biden hopes that he can sign it into law in fact so much so he he said that there's a lot of work to be done as he talked to the family of george floyd after the convictions saying he wants to sign this legislation into law the belief of the white house is that this could be possible committee how can thank you very much it's going to she have a transit in minneapolis and a sense of relief perhaps for many in minneapolis and remember the man who moved the nation into such social and political action. it all
10:05 pm
seems to be settling in and there's a real real discussion and thought being given is towards accountability means what justice means what what this decision means in the the framework all of a system where black people are killed with normally with impunity yes this time apparently not with impunity but that's actually why that the o.j. investigations of the minneapolis police department getting is under some discussion right now as well and they really seem to be an effort by the m.p. d. during the trial to suggest erik chopin was just one bad actor one bad apple and that's why we saw as was called the report of the blue wall of silence crumbles so you have the chief of police and you have the trainer saying what he did is shocking we would never train for something like that we would never tell anyone to do that kind of thing we're shocked shocked that this could possibly happen in our city and it was a surprise here that kind of thing happens in minneapolis and it does happen so
10:06 pm
clearly bats any attempt the suggestion was one back to hasn't worked with the d.o.j. but at the same time we've had d.o.j. investigations in the past into cities like minneapolis in fact officers and their castiel was killed a few years ago there was a there was a statewide certainly and choir and a training program named after for that there castiel $12000000.00 to it went to it but you know here we are again and in fact derek show been on camp also killed down to right last week they were trainers they were actually training rookie police officers when they killed these these black men and they were just actually really interesting press conference that was held back at the courthouse went through with community leaders who. actually what was the word good beyond lip service they were directing their comments directly to joe biden as they have been several days now but joe biden non-commital harris and get on a plane and come and they always there's always that real consciousness that both joe biden and tom the harris has such a big integral role in the cars real state and policing in the us both of them used to boast about their role in the cultural state about law and order and putting
10:07 pm
people behind. and we have this system now in the u.s. of course of the most people behind bars in the world but i think that we still very well welcome it but we've done this before so instead of just the minneapolis police department you have a look at the whole states police department specifically some pull between the city of minneapolis which has a much deadly a rate of killing them than the minneapolis but it's not just the police it's the entire system it's the prosecutors it's the medical examiners it's all the entire infrastructure that means people like derek jovan fail that they can get away with this sort of thing why did it why was he so confident behind me for a night and a half minutes and the entire system that has to be looked at they don't want the same old same old kumbaya as they were saying they want actual action and they want other solutions which is obviously divesting defending the police the militarized police and investing in communities as well and even as the shaving that it was rent she had there is needed another fatal shooting that's not going well no
10:08 pm
contest about that case. it was interesting how quickly that body com video was released in columbus ohio a teenage ago shot by a police officer the clip of the police making the argument that the body count video shows that the video was a danger to someone else and so the police officer followed almost immediately as soon as he got on the scene multiple times in a very short amount of time but again that raises all those questions about deescalation of training why is the 1st reaction then to shoot multiple times to kill if this is a white person and we see this in a cause you just have to google search from you know go on social media now on the so many examples white people brandishing weapons being threatening that i don't shot and killed all the time so those debates. are again being discussed i'm not sure even in the last few hours we have another case elizabeth city north carolina we're getting reports of an unarmed black man stopped after a truck stopped off short rather dead after a traffic stop multiple times again

10:12 pm
considering how much international pressure russia is our been under recently with diplomats expelled and sanctions imposed because of allegations of meddling in the us presidential elections of cyber hacking of their massive troop buildup on the borders of ukraine and the occupation of crimea blood in there putin said to all of that we don't want to provoke anyone but provoke of we will hit back asymmetrically he said he said russia is being picked on without any reasons it's like a tiger being circled by hyenas he said in a reference to roger to play. ben smith thank you very much indeed. yes clayton kovac 19 crisis in india has stretched the country's health system to breaking point hospitals in delhi say they have enough oxygen to last just another 8 to 24 hours in haryana people try to newt an oxygen tank or while others are

using social media to plead for oxygen tanks and beds and his protection has now been ordered for all tankers and oxygen is being imported is still unclear whether a new variant is behind the sudden increase in cases in india on wednesday india reported 295041 new cases just 2000 fewer than the worst day on record in the us in january the world health organization says so far 182553 people have died in delhi at least 22. died when their oxygen supply was disrupted by leaking tank is based around a report. the leak of an oxygen tank outside this hospice of a massacre caused clouds of dense wants gas. tank to supply oxygen needed by patients inside the 773 feeling that there was a leakage occurred while refilling the oxygen tankers and a lot of cover 90 patients at the hospital who were under ventilator support you

10:15 pm
exponentially as we are seeing right now that there would be a possibility of started up oxygen this would have been something that policymakers and health systems operations should have thought through. the government has now restricted the supply of oxygen and india for medical purposes and there's a ministry of external affairs has been tasked with importing 50000 metric tons of oxygen from hospitals using double the amount they were last year and with hard cases rising and hard to read. that demand is only to go out even more and there's a lot of algea. still to come on al-jazeera branded terrorist to justify land grabs why 1000000 syrian refugees can never go home. european football's own goal the super league is scrapped before balls kicked in.
