Cold-blooded murder of Floyd in broad daylight in front of witnesses.
 
This morning a private conversation took place between Rev. Al Sharpton, Gwen Carr and George Floyd’s family. The call was initiated by the family attorney, Benjamin Crump, to pledge support during this very difficult time.
 
The Floyd family asked for Rev. Al Sharpton and Gwen Carr to speak at their son’s funeral that will take place in the near future. “As the world learns about the untimely death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, the National Action Network will offer its unequivocal support to George’s family and attorney Ben Crump,” said Reverend Al Sharpton. “This morning, Eric Garner’s mother Gwen Carr and I had a phone call with the family of George Floyd to express our solidarity and resources until justice is served. Our community is devastated as the criminal behavior by officers in the Minneapolis Police Department was captured in a video for the world to see. How these officers handled themselves is beyond comprehension and undeniably shows why they should be arrested and charged.”
 
“I feel the pain and hurt from George’s family and my whole heart goes out to them,” said Carr, who lost her son, Eric Garner, in 2014, when he was choked to death by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo. “As I was talking to them, I relived what happened to Eric and tears overwhelmed me. I will work with NAN and Rev. Sharpton and supporters of George Floyd as we fight for accountability and justice.”
