George Floyd to be buried in Houston

George Floyd will be laid to rest in Houston, where he was born, two weeks after his death in Minneapolis police custody sparked worldwide protests.

Floyd’s death has launched a nationwide debate over defunding the police after being pinned down by the neck for nearly nine minutes by a police officer who has been fired, arrested and being held on $1.25mn bail.

Both Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and President Trump, a Republican say they oppose defunding the police, though they have sharply different views on what the future of policing in the US should look like.
