George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter stood by his crying mother At a press conference on Tuesday because she reminded me of how Floyd moved to Minnesota to support them – and his lawyers wanted all the cops involved in the police brutality case to be brought to justice.
“It was a good man – and this is proof,” said Roxie Washington, the mother of Floyd’s young daughter Gianna, standing next to the little girl in Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed on May 25, in Floyd’s shocking incident.
Washington said, “He loved us very much.” I want people to know that these cops are what I got from me.
“Gianna has no father. He will never see him grow up, he graduated. He will never walk down the aisle. “
Washington said Floyd had moved from Houston to Minneapolis, Minn. So that he was looking for better business opportunities for Gianna and himself.
Floyd, 46, died after a terrible incident caught on video and a national and global protest that allegedly had a fake 20 dollar bill attached to his neck for about 9 minutes. At the time, there were also two officers on the scene allegedly kneeling on officers Floyd’s back.
“The pictures will take forever. But justice never really comes into this, and we fight these cases from time to time, ”says one of Washington’s lawyers, Chris Stewart from Atlanta.
“Everyone at home is wondering why riots are caused by protests. Because such situations are not addressed. ”
“Nobody says that every police officer out there is trying to kill someone,” Stewart said. “But when someone does something, when someone crosses the line, they have to go through the system and be accountable.
“How is this not fair?”
“We wanted to show the world that George Floyd is not just a name, it’s just a breast, it’s just something to say,” said Justin Miller, a lawyer at Stewart’s firm.
“George Floyd was a real person, a good person, and there are people who love him.”
Among lovers of Floyd were former NBA player Stephen Jackson, who was at the press conference.
“I’m here to get justice for my brother,” ex-Jersey Nets player said. “We demand.”
