The brother of George Floyd called on Congress to reform the nation’s policing system during his recent hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. On Wednesday, Philonise Floyd told lawmakers that it’s up to them to make sure his brother’s death was not in vain.

“George called for help and he was ignored,” said Floyd. “Please listen to the call I’m making to you now, to the calls of our family and to the calls ringing out in the streets across the world.”

He described George as a “gentle giant” and believes his death will change the world for the better.

“People of all backgrounds, genders and races have come together to demand change. Honor them, honor George and make the necessary changes that make law enforcement the solution, not the problem. Teach them what it means to treat people with empathy and respect. Teach them what necessary force is.” – Philonise Floyd, brother of George Floyd

He went on to say he hopes his brother found their mother and can “rest in peace with power.”

  1. That guy is a clown. “Demanding justice.” Shut up. Everyone’s on the same page. Justice is being served. If it was about justice the world wouldn’t look how it does right now.
