Facebook To Review Policy After Outcry Over Trump Posts

Mark Zuckerberg announces decision after backlash over decision to not moderate controversial messages posted by Trump.

Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive of Facebook, has promised to review the social network’s policies that led to its decision to not moderate controversial messages posted by the US president that appeared to encourage violence against those protesting against police racism.

Protests continue for a 12th day over police brutality, with a North Carolina memorial service set for George Floyd, an unarmed Black man who was killed by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25.

Washington, DC is peparing for what one police official may be the “largest gathering” ever in the US capital.

Several jurisdictions have been altering their use of force policies, with California’s governor ordering state police stop teaching a controversial neck restraint, Minneapolis officials ordering a ban on police choke and strangleholds, Seattle’s mayor banning police from using tear gas in protests, and a federal judge in Denver limiting police use of tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters.
