Philonise Floyd plans to tell the House Judiciary Committee about the pain and anguish he and his family felt after videos surfaced of the officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeling on his brother’s neck for nearly nine minutes, Politico reported.
“I can’t breathe,” Floyd said as he died. That anguish quickly roiled a nation already crippled by coronavirus lockdowns and economic chaos.
“I can’t tell you the kind of pain you feel when you watch something like that. When you watch your big brother, who you’ve looked up to your whole life, die. Die begging for your mom,” Floyd plans to tell the committee.
“I’m tired. I’m tired of the pain I’m feeling now and I’m tired of the pain I feel every time another black person is killed for no reason. I’m here today to ask you to make it stop. Stop the pain. Stop us from being tired.”
