Sean: Let's Make Sure We Honor Mr. Floyd's Memory

Now, the more I see this video and the more everyone I talk to that sees this video, the more infuriated I get and I know many of you get as well, and for a lot of different reasons. It shakes me to my core and yes, we believe in due process, the presumption of innocence.

But that said it, our eyes show us a huge story here. So much wrong with how the police targeted George Floyd. Take a look — I remind you of your discretion might be advised if you have kids in the room.

+++++

It’s clear. Just look at your screen, it shows George Floyd wasn’t resisting arrest that we saw at any time. This was about a possible counterfeit $20 bill, not a violent crime from what we know.

+++++

Now, Mr. Floyd was not resisting, yet the cop is sitting on his neck for eight minutes. One strike can take somebody to their knees, cut off the blood to the brain. Every law enforcement official I know says the same thing. This is excessive and extremely dangerous use of force and none of it was necessary.

+++++

Now, the entire country is almost unanimous in their disgust at what they’re seeing and peaceful protests, frankly, in my mind are justifiable and understandable. The protests, the riots, the destruction of property that we were witnessing last night and we are seeing more of tonight as you look at live pictures is not the answer. This is not a way to honor George Floyd’s life.

+++++

So let’s make sure we honor Mr. Floyd’s memory. First, with quick justice. Not using what happened here as a pretext to commit acts of violence and making the problem worse.

+++++

You know, Geraldo, I’ve been looking, I’ve not seen — every person I know in law enforcement, they are aghast at this video, every single one, not one exception. Every conservative I know is outraged.
