George Floyd’s brother has called for killer cops to get the death penalty in an emotional interview just three days after he died.
Philonise told CNN on Thursday that the four officers executed my brother in broad daylight.
These officers, they need to be arrested right now, Philonise said.
They need to be arrested and held accountable for everything because these people want justice right now, these guys need to be arrested, convicted of murder, and given the death penalty.
They need to. They took my brother’s life.
He will never get that back. I will never see him again. My family will never see him again. His kids will never see him again.
Speaking about the, now viral, video of Officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on his brother’s neck during an arrest, Philonise said: It was hard, but I had to watch the video and as I watched the video, those four officers, they executed my brother.
The paramedics, they drug him across the floor without administering CPR, they showed no empathy, no compassion, nobody out there showed it.
As the interview continued, Philonise broke down in tears and reinstated the justice that his family wants to see.
We need justice. We need justice. Those four officers need to be arrested.
They executed my brother in broad daylight. People had to film that. People had to see that.
People pleaded for his life. Kids were out there seeing that. Nobody should have to witness that.
On Monday, George Floyd died after Officer Derek Chauvin was filmed kneeling on his neck during an arrest in Minneapolis as the black man shouted I can’t breathe.
The arrest was carried out after George Floyd allegedly tried to use forged documents at a local deli.
An ambulance was called and the man was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center where he later died.
The incident report described George Floyd as an unresponsive, pulseless male, and explained that despite medics performing numerous checks on several occasions, they did not find a pulse.
