The Justice Department is launching an investigation into the police practices in Minneapolis.
Attorney General Merrick Garland making the announcement a day after a now imprisoned officer was convicted of murdering George Floyd.
"I am announcing the Justice Department has opened a civil investigation to determine whether the Minneapolis Police Department engages in a pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing," said Garland.
Garland says if they find something unconstitutional or unlawful, they will issue a public report. He says this probe will be separate from another federal investigation into Floyd's death.
