The United States President Joe Biden on Thursday called for calm after five police officers were charged in the beating to death of a Black man following a traffic stop and said he backed “peaceful protest.”

“As Americans grieve, the Department of Justice conducts its investigation, and state authorities continue their work, I join Tyre’s family in calling for peaceful protest,” Biden said, referring to the slain man, Tyre Nichols.

“Outrage is understandable, but violence is never acceptable.”
