"What took place in Minneapolis should never happen in this country. America's mayors mourn for George Floyd and grieve with the loved ones he left behind. This tragedy calls for swift justice, and I commend Mayor Frey for the seriousness and urgency with which he is approaching it. Our society must never grow indifferent to this heartbreaking, needless and unacceptable loss of life."
