The death of George Floyd and the arrest of former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, who has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter, has presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden talking about what he thinks needs to be done by those in power:
Joe Biden says grappling with issues of systemic injustice "is going to require those of us who sit in some position of influence to finally deal with the abuse of power."

Has Joe Biden forgotten he’s Joe Biden?
So what’s he been doing in his 45-50 years in DC?
