The Conviction of the Killing of George Floyd Official Statement


FROM DANIEL R. MEACHUM, ESQ.,

AS THE ATTORNEY FOR THE ADMINISTRATOR OF GEORGE FLOYD’S ESTATE, MS. ROXIE WASHINGTON, AND MOTHER OF GIANNA FLOYD, THE ONLY CHILD OF GEORGE FLOYD, WHO AS WE KNOW LOST HER FATHER IN THE MOST HORRIFIC, ILLEGAL AND INHUMANE MANNER. WE WANT TO THANK THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD IN MORE THAN 30 COUNTRIES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD WHO VOICED THEIR OUTRAGE TO THIS EXECUTION. WE WANT TO THANK THE JURORS WHO TOOK THE TIME OUT OF THEIR PERSONAL LIVES IN THE MIDST OF THIS WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC FOR THEIR ATTENTION TO THE EVIDENCE PRODUCED AT THE TRIAL. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE PROSECUTION FOR THEIR TIRELESS WORK TO PUT TOGETHER THIS CASE TO ENSURE THAT JUSTICE WOULD PREVAIL AND THE SEARCH FOR TRUTH WOULD BE REALIZED. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE JUDGE WHO CONDUCTED THESE PROCEEDINGS IN A FAIR AND IMPARTIAL MANNER, AND TO ALL OF THE WITNESSES WHO PARTICIPATED IN THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL WAY WHO ALL ATTEMPTED TO STOP THE PUBLIC EXECUTION OF GEORGE FLOYD. MS. WASHINGTON ON BEHALF OF HER DAUGHTER GIANNA FLOYD PRAYS AND HOPES GOING FORWARD THAT THIS SERVES AS A MESSAGE ON HOW WE MUST REMAIN VIGILANT AND DEMAND THAT JUSTICE IS FOR ALL. THAT THE LADY OF JUSTICE REMAINS BLIND AND IMPARTIAL, THAT THE SCALES OF JUSTICE CONTINUES TO TIP IN THE FAVOR OF WHAT IS RIGHT, WHAT IS PROVEN AND WHAT IS FAIR. THAT THERE IS A STOP TO THE OPPRESSION AND SUBJUGATION AND UNJUST TREATMENT OF PEOPLE OF COLOR. WE MUST CONTINUE TO DEMAND THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT PROTECT AND SERVE ALL OF THE COMMUNITY AND NOT ACT IN THE ROLE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, PROSECUTION, JUDGE AND JURY AND EXECUTIONER FOR SOME OF THE COMMUNITY. THERE IS NO JURY VERDICT THAT COULD POSSIBLY CONSTRUCT OR SUTURE THE INTERNAL VOID THAT GIANNA WILL CONTINUE TO CARRY FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE, HOWEVER, WHEN SHE STATED THAT HER DADDY CHANGED THE WORLD, THIS VERDICT WILL SERVE AS A POINTED REMINDER AND REMARKABLE SOURCE FOR HER TO RELISH AND FIND THAT HER DADDY REALLY DID IN FACT CHANGE THE WORLD. THAT THIS WAS A WATERSHED MOMENT GIVING ALL AMERICAN’S HOPE THAT JUSTICE AND EQUALITY CAN BE REALIZED AND SHOULD BE EXPECTED. MS WASHINGTON ON BEHALF OF GIANNA FLOYD THINKS THAT THIS SHOULD BE THE START OF A RECONCILIATION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF A BETTER AND MORE EQUITABLE AND GREATER AMERICA.
