George Floyd’s Brother Condemns Violent Rioters: ‘Channel Your Anger Elsewhere’

In an interview with ABC13 Houston, where George Floyd was originally from, his younger brother Terrance Floyd said that he condemns the violent riots happening and wants everyone to know George stood for peace. He said that while he is “outraged too,” he encouraged people to “channel” their anger “elsewhere.”

Another man speaking on behalf of Terrance called for “justice” and “peace” because there is a “whole bunch of stuff that is happening that looks bad for America.” He continued, “you won’t be able to get the results that you are looking for if you don’t have the peace.”

From ABC13:

“I’m outraged too,” he said. “Sometimes I get angry. I want to go crazy. My brother wasn’t about that. You’ll hear a lot of people saying, ‘He was a gentle giant.'”

Terrence said he wants to see first degree murder charges for Derek Chauvin, the officer seen on video kneeling on George’s neck, and wants the other officers charged as well.

On Monday, he plans to visit the site in Minneapolis where his brother took his last breaths.

“I just had to come down here, and let people know, just channel your anger elsewhere,” he said.
