“I think things have changed, I think they are moving slowly, but progress is being made.” Philonise Floyd, sister of George, the African American killed a year ago in Minneapolis by former police officer Derek Chauvin, expressed her belief that her death has begun to change things in America. “I want things to improve because I don’t want other people to die like my brother died”, added Floyd, interviewed by CNN, underlining that the approval of the law for police reform, which bears his brother’s name “would be best thing for America to do “. Passed in the House, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act is stopped in the Senate and Joe Biden, who today receives Floyd’s family members in the White House, has asked for the law to be symbolically approved by today which prohibits policemen from locking suspects around their necks, suspends the protection of officers from civil appeals and establishes new national rules for the police. But the Democrats themselves in the Senate do not believe that it will be possible to answer the appeal of the president: “I would be shocked if something should happen so soon, “Dick Durbin, number two of the Democratic senators, told Politico, stressing that he was optimistic about the negotiations, but convinced that there is still a need for no “work” to do to get the Republican votes needed to push through the reform. Before going to the White House, the Biden family will be in Congress to meet Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Senate leaders.
