Statement from “The Inner Hero Organization”
As a father, I am brokenhearted and crushed. As a member of the community, my emotions are raging. As an activist for a safer and more productive society, strengthening community-police relations, I am devastated by the death of George Floyd.
When police officers’ actions coincide with the death of a community member, it leaves a lot of strain on the police-community relationship, derailing trust and undermining the legitimacy of the service.
At this point, I will ask the community members to remain calm and direct their energy to prayer for the comfort and solace of the bereaved family.
Meanwhile, The Inner Hero organization, as part of and for the community, will reach out to the requisite authorities to ensure transparency and subsequently when the facts that are revealed show the officer(s) are negligent, justice.
