WATCH: Video Shows George Floyd CONDEMNING The Same Type Of Violence That Rioters And Thugs Are Carrying Out In Response To His Death
Before George Floyd died while in the custody of Minneapolis police officers, he recorded a video in which he railed against the violence he had witnessed among younger generations.
“Our young generation is clearly lost, man, clearly lost, man. Like like, oh, I don’t even know what to say no more, man. Like you youngsters just going around, just busting guns in crowds. In crowds, kids are getting killed,” said Floyd in the video that you can find at the bottom of this article.
George Floyd’s death sparked mass riots in Minneapolis that led to the destruction & looting of many local businesses including a Target store, an auto zone, and a school.
The dangerous and violent riots quickly spread to every state across the country.

Ironically, this destructive behavior is sadly the same type of senseless violence from young people that Floyd warned about in his video.
Director John Elder of the Minneapolis Police Department was saddened to hear about people looting from local stores because they are distracting the public from honoring Floyd’s death.
“It’s unfortunate, it’s sad if people are there, truly there to honor the memory of the deceased and the family, this isn’t how you do it,” stated Elder.
Four armed men, who said they support the peaceful protesters, volunteered to patrol the area of the riots in an attempt to mitigate the onslaught of damage & theft done to both small and large businesses.
“If there are more of us, we could go stop them from looting, but it’s just us four. We definitely don’t agree with the looting. We do agree with the cause of the protest,” said one of the men.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed that President Trump immediately ordered the FBI and DOJ to conduct expedited investigations into the incident.
McEnany continued on to state that protesting is a right and it should be done in a peaceful, orderly manner in order to prevent additional deaths and injuries.
