Amid violent protests that have convulsed communities across the US, George Floyd’s younger brother is pleading with demonstrators “not to tear up your town,” according to a report.
“[S]ometimes I get angry, I want to bust some heads, too,” Terrence Floyd told ABC News. “I wanna … just go crazy. But I’m here. My brother wasn’t about that. My brother was about peace. You’ll hear a lot of people say he was a gentle giant.”
George Floyd, 46, died while being pinned down by since-fired Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin on May 25, sparking outrage and massive protests throughout the country.
The cop has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Three other officers involved in Floyd’s detention also were fired, but have not yet been arrested or charged.
