President Joe Biden has expressed his outrage and deep pain over the video of Tyre Nichols, a Black man who was killed by police in Minneapolis.
The video, which has been widely shared on social media, shows Nichols being shot multiple times by Minneapolis police officers, despite appearing to be unarmed and not posing a threat.
The President called the killing of Tyre Nichols "unacceptable" and "unjustifiable," and called on the Minneapolis Police Department to take immediate action to hold the officers involved accountable.
He also called on all Americans to come together to demand an end to the systemic racism and police brutality that continues to plague communities of color.
"This is not just a problem for Minneapolis, or for one community, it is a problem for our entire country," Biden said in a statement.
"We must come together to demand real change, and to do everything in our power to prevent tragedies like this from happening again."
The President also called on Congress to pass meaningful police reform legislation, including measures to increase transparency and accountability for law enforcement officers, and to address the root causes of racial disparities in policing.
"We must work together to build a more just and equitable society for all Americans," Biden said.
"That starts with ending the senseless violence and brutality that has taken too many lives, and ensuring that all of our communities are safe and treated with dignity and respect."
The death of Tyre Nichols is a tragic reminder of the urgent need for change in our country, and the President is committed to doing everything in his power to make that change a reality.
