This is in response to Lisa Root’s letter to the editor.
The last I looked, none of us is perfect. We all have our demons and faults, and George Floyd was no different.
Did you ever think he didn’t know the money was counterfeit?
Regardless, the fact of the matter is that he was restrained on the ground as three other officers looked on indifferently while their comrade slowly and deliberately murdered another human being as if it was something he did every day, smirking while he did it.
I can tell you this, if Mr. Floyd were a white man, he’d still be with us.
Perhaps you can do a little soul searching and come to a better conclusion.
