Boca Raton, Florida
Barbara Rose PhD awoke this morning with one name on her mind – George Floyd. She watched the video of the entire killing process as Derek Chauvin the 44 year old white police officer who without any conscience took joy in the deliberate murder of George Floyd with his knee pressed against Floyd’s neck for nine minutes while three other police officers stood by witnessing this murder and did nothing to stop it.
Rose said, “the part that killed me the most was when George Floyd was crying out “I can’t breathe” and calling out for his Mama, Rose broke down sobbing at this horrific tragedy.
Rose is demanding a Federal nationwide police brutality overhaul against systemic racism targeting African Americans that has been allowed throughout the history of the United States.
Racism in any form must be stopped. Targeting any group of people due to skin color has to end, and it must end NOW.
Rose added, “My heart is crushed by this tragic event. Watching this innocent man George Floyd being brutally murdered went to the core of my heart and soul. There must be federal mandates and laws to protect innocent people especially African Americans from being targeted with cruel racism and murder. No more police chock holds!
George Floyd’s life mattered. His tragic death at the knee of Derek Chauvin must be a turning point in what is and is not allowed with police brutality. May George rest in peace, and may all four police officers serve maximum prison sentences due to this tragic murder.
