Floyd, 46, died after a policeman was accused of kneeling for almost 9 minutes in his neck, a horrific incident caught on video and sparked national and global protests. Three other officers were on the scene at the time, two of whom reportedly fell on Floyd’s back.
“Images last forever. But justice will never be true, time and time again, we are fighting these cases, ”said Chris Stewart of Atlanta, one of Washington’s lawyers.
“Everyone at home wonders why there is riots and why there is resistance. This is because such circumstances have not gone unnoticed, ”he said.
“Nobody says every police officer out there is trying to kill someone,” Stewart said. “But when someone does something, when someone crosses the line, they have to go through the system and take responsibility.
“How unfair is that?”
Justin Miller, Stewart’s lawyer, added: “Today, we wanted to show the world that George Floyd is not just a name, but also a memory, not something to be chanted.
“George Floyd is a real person, a good person, and there are people who loved him.”
