coronavirus patients in india families tend to social media to find oxygen for sick relatives and. a number of bad batteries territory where the norristown at the heart of a fight between 2 mexican drug cartels we have an exclusive report. i know the u.s. attorney general has launched an investigation into the minneapolis police force a day off to one of its offices was found guilty of the murder and manslaughter of george floyd the verdicts handed down today show been on tuesday marked the end of an emotionally charged trial and a case which is odd protests across the globe but merrick garland said the verdicts did not go far enough in addressing systemic racism and the behavior of the police . yesterday's verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially
1:02 am
systemic policing issues in minneapolis the investigation i am 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 its treatment of those with behavioral health disability is unlawful and white house correspondent kimberly how good excuse me has more now on the bad news fission hoping to reform policing through this investigation. 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
1:03 am
attorney general eric garland to put in place this civil 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 come a harris said shortly after the verdict in the convictions of officer derrick show been a measure of justice is not equal justice they want to see that this is change that isn't 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 and essentially what this legislation would do is it would really toughen up the
1:04 am
a prosecutorial ability of communities and individuals to take on the very high bar of command 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. he's going to. minneapolis tell us about the reaction that to the news of an investigation into the pleased department . another investigation into
1:05 am
a police department i mean there is that that's being welcomes there's relief i think the relief comes from it appeared in the direction of an trial the minneapolis police department as it testified itself against derrick shavit with the chief of police of various trainers they was trying to suggest that this is just shocking behavior to them that what. was on hold off they had he wasn't trained to do that so the chief the minneapolis police you said you know this is just ridiculous every it was like how could this be happening in minneapolis but of course the people behind me the community is around and yet this sort of thing happens all the time so i guess is a relief that at least that narrative wasn't believed by the department of justice but then we were listening to some. community leaders a few hours ago who said you know we had the d.o.j. before none of the policies that were implemented off to the long investigation were implemented and it was notable as well we always have investigations in these analyses of these new training regimes as
1:06 am
a training regime often under castiel was killed a few years ago and the training program was actually named off to a multi-million dollar. here we are again and in fact derek chauvinism trainer for the minneapolis there was a trainer from the minneapolis police department so clearly that didn't work so there's that sense that ok if there is an investigation it has to be much deeper and i'd call just be looking at the narrow focus of the the minneapolis police department but all of policing in the state specifically in some polls as well than the twin to minneapolis which has a much higher killing rate for the minneapolis but also the state troopers but also that infrastructure which allowed derrick chauvet to be so confident as he as he sat and knelt to george floyd for 9 and a half minutes why do you think you get away with it and so that means also looking that the bureaucracy the infrastructure the medical examiners the prosecutors who are all in this together as far as community activists are concerned but also moving on beyond that to say look we have all of these supposed good intentions
1:07 am
which never get anywhere now we need a radical rethinking of policing itself and what public safety actually means what the purpose of a police force even is we know in the u.s. of course the origins of from slave patrols hasn't changed that much hasn't changed that much but you know policing poor people and black people in a way to protect the rich people hasn't really doesn't seem to have to a lot of people here so that's why there's this concept of defunding the police which means pushing money away from a militarized police was millions of dollars of tanks and weaponry and push it into communities pushing it into public health programs pushing it into education pushing it into welfare that's the way to look at it and there's a real suspicion that joe biden comedy has really will do that because they spent years building up their own political careers by boasting about how they were stalwarts off the system which apparently they're now complaining about they were all law and order and putting people in jail and supporting the police so there's some suspicion about whether they've really changed too she had tons of thank you

1:13 am
a possibility of shortage of oxygen this would have been something that policymakers and health systems should have thought through. the government has now restricted the supply of oxygen and india for medical purposes and there is 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 i would close with cases rising at the current rate that demand it's only going to go on even more and there's a lot of al-jazeera. spain's prime minister says he will distribute 7 and a half 1000000 of his country's vaccines to latin america and it couldn't come too soon europe why is experiencing a surgeon deaths and infections it was once hailed as an oasis in latin america it is now registering the highest daily case rate in the world on america and human faults. normally sedating a reliance protest by banging pots and pans they blame the government for allowing
