Floyd’s Family Begging to Stop Riots but Leftwing Activists Call for More Violence

Minneapolis is currently in a moment of crisis and there is something to be said for allowing cooler heads to prevail. Fortunately, the city has found the proper leadership to turn to right now. While you would think that it would come from the mayor or some other public officials, the directives are actually coming from George Floyd’s own family members.

Courtney Ross, his girlfriend, urged locals to stop looting and burning buildings in his “honor”. She told the media that her boyfriend truly loved his city and that he would be very letdown by the choices that people are currently making. Ross went on to say that he was a gentle giant. He was a man who was all about love and peace.

She is urging people to protest in the proper manner. At the moment, these requests are falling on deaf ears. We wish that the rioters would be willing to listen but this feels like a lost cause. By engaging in this type of violent behavior, the protesters are making it harder to get their true point across. It would be nice if they would stop to listen to what Floyd’s loved ones have to say on the matter.

“Waking up this morning to see Minneapolis on fire would be something that would devastate Floyd,” said Ross, his girlfriend for the past three years and a resident of the city. “He loved the city. He came here [from Houston] and stayed here for the people and the opportunities. … Floyd was a gentle giant. He was about love and about peace.”

Ross said she wants everyone who took to the streets “to know that I understand their frustration. … I want people to protest in a peaceful way.”

Some of Floyd’s relatives echoed Ross’ sentiments Thursday through their attorney, Benjamin Crump, who has represented families left mourning the death of loved ones during police encounters.

“Looting and violence distract from strength of our collective voice,” Crump said in a tweet, followed by another that said, “George Floyd’s family wants peace in #Minneapolis — but knows that Black people want peace in their souls — and until we get #JusticeForFloyd there will be no peace.”

These efforts are certainly gracious. This family is still in the grieving process and they are finding time to address the general public. Of course, these people have every reason to seek revenge. George Floyd was killed under wrongful circumstances. No one would blame them if they wanted to put their civic responsibility on the back burner. Their actions are beyond selfless.

That’s why we hope that people are willing to start listening to what they are saying. They have placed the welfare of the community over their undeniable rage. If everyone was ready to put their personal feelings to the side like this, the city would be in much better shape. If we did not know any better, we would have to assume that the looters are acting out of selfishness.

This man’s death is being discussed in areas that extend well beyond the borders of the Twin Cities. Floyd hails from Houston and the city is angered by what has taken place. Police Chief Art Acevedo was visibly furious about what happened to Floyd. He let the world know that his officers are instructed properly. They are to leave the neck alone, unless they find themselves in a battle for their lives.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are coming to the city today and we are sure that these two are going to be ready to serve as a voice of reason. This was sarcasm, in case you couldn’t tell. The National Guard has also been sent to the city. President Trump made the announcement in a tweet this morning. Things are probably going to get a whole lot worse before they have a chance to get better.

Jesse Jackson is going to be holding a press conference because he never misses a chance to get himself on television. We wonder if this visit is about raising his political profile or if he actually cares about what happened to Floyd. While it’s probably a mixture of the two, there is something to be said about the right time and place.

The citizens of Minneapolis are not going to be encouraged by these types of visits. They want justice and they want it yesterday. With any luck, Jackson can come together with local officials to devise a better protest strategy. As for Sharpton, we are not sure what he has planned. His history is a bit more checkered than Jackson’s.

Sharpton is considered to be far more of an opportunist than Jackson. In the meantime, the Floyd family is doing everything in their power to put a stop to the violence before the situation gets any worse. They are going above and beyond to help save their city.

  1. These thugs are not interested in justice for George Floyd. They take advantage of every opportunity like this to loot and burn. They break into the stores, steal whatever they want, then set fire to the building. They have been getting away with this for decades.
    The people who are actually protesting the killing of Floyd should leave whenever these thugs start breaking the law. Leave so the police can do their job. After the actual protesters are gone, the police can round up the lawbreakers and put them in jail. It’s hard for them to do that when the streets are full of people. Come back the next day and protest.
    Being out there on the street with people looting and destroying private property is not protesting what happened to George Floyd. People who watch this on TV forget what you are protesting when all they can see is crowds of people and the looting and burning going on.
    The people who own the stores and buildings that are being destroyed had nothing to do with what you are protesting. They are innocent victims also. Who is going to protest their being bankrupted by a bunch of thugs . Nobody will. Some of them may have been in the protest too. Some of the businesses that were destroyed were Black owned. A lot of people are now out of work because of this. It was bad enough with just the virus.
    If you are in the protest march and something like this starts, leave, let the Police take care of these thugs. Most Police are doing everything they can to protect us and our property. Don’t make it harder on them to do that.

    1. It is okay to protest and March for justice. Property damage, looting and setting stuff on fire is criminal. Protestinf is Welcome, but destroying buildings, looting etc is not welcome in our city and state. I strongly feel Coronavirus shelter In place and all this pinned up angry is also an contributing factor. To all who believe I God. The Bible states Vengeance is mind said the Lord. If you are not believer No need to respond.

    2. Most are not even from the areas they are destroying. They come in by the carload, start a riot/looting spree and then leave. Except a large number of them have been caught in the act. As of Sunday, only 16 of 61 caught in Miami were from Miami. I’d expect the same levels in MN, CA, DC, PA, or any place other than NY.

  2. There WILL be more Riots and protests, count on it, it’s an Election Year, and this is all the Commie Democrats have!!

  3. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are race baiting hustlers. They are there for the sole purpose of enriching themselves as the expense of the citizens of Minneapolis. They should be arrested for probable cause and held for 24 hours while being questioned about their motives. When released they should be followed closely (and let them know they are being followed) to make sure they adhere to the lies they told during questioning.

  4. What about that white guy dress up in a police swat like uniform going around breaking windows in the city? Was he a police informer, a police undercover agent, or a right-wing militia person?

    1. Left wing faker. He was no cop, nor was he a militia member. You have to remember that there have been a lot of police clothes stolen in these riots. The fact that the one with the hammer was carrying an umbrella shows that the person could not tolerate the heat in the black outfit. Something that a cop would be used to.

  5. Does anyone see a pattern here? Wind the clock back to January. The democrats failed with Kavanaugh and looked like the asses they truly are,next comes impeachment, another bust, and they are looking more stupid by the day while Trump continues to get stronger, then we have the Wuhan flu and our dive into every day is Halloween with the masks, but the wind is coming out of those sails and Flynn is released,but now there are things about to come out in regards to the democrats that they really don’t want the public to know about. what to do? A cop kills a black man, and yes I saw the video and it angers me and saddens me as well. It still hurts to think about it,but not the demo. This is an opportunity to stir things up,divide the country even more, and most importantly to take the publics eyes off of the information about to come out on the democrats and of course blame the president. Soros is one of the moneymen behind this.time to size his assets,strip him of his citizenship and deport him back to his country of origin

  6. Everybody knows Obama supports Deep State BLM, and even had these psycho’s in the White House!

    Everybody knows George Soros is financing Anti American Antifa, and their main goal is to rid America, of all Police!

    All Americans have seen what will happen without our Police, these Sorry Worthless Low Life Trash Terrorist Protesters will loot, and burn down everything in sight, including your home!

    Prosecute Obama and his Deep State supporters that are now looting and burning America, and revoke Soros’s American Citizenship, and Deport him back to his birth place, due to his financing terrorism, only then will America be able to get back to Law and Order!

  7. How many white people started riots and looting when the police killed 370 white men in 2019 vs 235 black men. Blacks kill more blacks in gang violence than the entire police department, and they also kill more police than any other race. But don’t get me wrong, what that cop did to Floyd was murder, but how the blacks are handling it is ridiculous. Sharpton and Jackson are nothing but a-holes looking to start more trouble than there already is. I’m just getting sick and tired of the black people who think Black lives Matter but white ones don’t !!!

  8. The Prosecutors don’t have enough Evidence to Charge them with anything . IT’S the DERANGED AND DEPLORABLE LOWLIFE S and the FAR FAR – LEFT is Accountable for ALL this CRAP !! DICTATOR PELOSI aka POLLACK and her DERANGED LOWLIFE GANG should be ashamed of themselves.

  9. The motive for all these riots has nothing to do with the death of Mr. Floyd in the hands of a cop, who is already in jail and will be incarcerated for abuse. All these riots don’t even have to do with racism. These riots have more to do with terrorism than anything else. And, who is financing them? Think about it.

Just like other areas of electronics, video games way too have had to evolve via many generations. This is testimony to the fast development of video games.
