George Floyd’s Brother Philonise Floyd, is now delivering his opening remarks to the House judiciary commitee for the hearing on police brutality.
Floyd described the pain of watching the video of his brother’s murder, which showed a police officer kneelng on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine mintues.
“He was our gentle giant. I was reminded of that when I watched the video of his murder,” Floyd said of his brother. “He was mild mannered; he didn’t fight back. He listened to the officers. He called them ‘sir.’ The men who took his life, who suffocated him for eight minutes and 46 seconds. He still called them ‘sir’ as he begged for his life.
“I can’t tell you the kind of pain you feel when you watch something like that. When you watch your big brother, who you’ve looked up to your whole life, die. Die begging for your mom.”
Floyd implored the lawmakers to make sure that his brother’s death sparked meaningful change. “I’m here today to ask you to make it stop. Stop the pain. Stop us from being tired,” Floyd said.
