George Floyd’s brother criticizes violent protests and rioting

Terrence Floyd, the younger brother of George Floyd, has called for the end of violent protests and riots that have escalated over the past week following his brother’s killing. Floyd said he wants justice handed to the officers, but denounced the violent demonstrations. ’My brother wasn’t about that. My brother was about peace. You’ll hear a lot of people say he was a gentle giant’, he added.

By all accounts, George Floyd would not have supported the riots. The problem is he has been made into an excuse from horrible behavior. The irony is that the Mayor, who could help make necessary changes to the police force hasn't become the subject of a recall election or anything that could influence positive changes. Instead the corrupt/incompetent leaders remain in place while people loot and riot in the name of change.

Good man. This violence must stop. This does not change anything, but creates more policing and more violence. This is NOT Selma.

Good. Hopefully this will drive a rift between honest protesters and rioters who are making the protesters look bad.

Not all cops are murderers. Not all protesters are violent black bloc arsonists, vandals, looters. We can't let anarchists hijack peaceful protest, righteous calls for justice!

Did Floyd's wife come out and say that he would be ashamed of the violence and rioting?

Protestors should be policing their own. Someone starts breaking things or looting turn them in. They are smearing your character and Mr. Floyd’s.

In the immortal words of Rodney King... "Can't we all just... just get along?" And the answer is "No. Not as long as there are people who make a living sowing discord and strife by rioting and burning down American cities" . AKA: "ANTIFA and BLM"

My take on this is the insurgent terrorists known as Antifa were hoping to escalate this in the hope of dragging in right wing supremacists. This did not happen but it does not stop the media lying about the presence of right wing groups without a shread of proof. Even after CNN had one of their buildings attacked they still refuse to use 5he word rioters. Inbelivebly they are still calling these gangsters 'protesters" The lying scum left wing media played a big part in this For years they have stoked the narrative of oppression, racism and the evil white man. They are still doing this now when it is evident that these scum rioters are little more than opportunist thugs, vandals and thieves.

I dunno, if I’m ever obviously unjustly killed by police or the state...go ahead and burn down the precinct. Don’t deface the Alamo or loot target, but burn down the station

Protesters will begin to protest the riots. So there will be protests within protests. Eventually pushing out the extreme violence.

I "liked" this article with it's original picture. It now has a mob with fire and a wall scrawled "Avenge George" - I do NOT support doing it THAT way. Certainly "avenge" is the wrong word.

CCP is the threat. Wall Street's treason is the problem. ANTIFA Black Shirts are the symptom.

I dont get the protests. The officers have been fired. The cop kneeling on him has been charged with homicide. What more can possibly be done? And as for the looting, fires and rioting that has nothing to do with Floyd and shouldnt be reported as such. Its a bunch of thugs acting like fools.

"We will riot until what we decide is perfection arrives." "If we see one person out 300 million people die during any arrest we will consider it ok to riot endlessly." How can people even for second think that that is reasonable? Americans have become just as nuts as them.

Everyone possible should up vote this story. No reasonable person would call for a riot over their own death. Causing injury and incidents without prejudice is terrible and should be stopped. Share this story.

Its not just about your brother.. its about the thousands of people of all races being brutalized and murdered by police.

Why would anyone support these riots? They're certainly not in protest for what happened. The cop was fired and arrested. Can't do much more than that atm. Of course, courts are probably closed due to coronavirus and riots aren't helping justice getting served.
