Former NBA journeyman Stephen Jackson has been at the forefront of demanding justice for the killing of his friend George Floyd.
Jackson appeared at Minneapolis City Hall Tuesday alongside the friends and family of George Floyd to vocalize his thoughts on the current state of affairs.
CBS News transcribed some of his speech.
Here’s what he had to say in support of Floyd’s daughter Gigi and her mother Roxie Washington.
“I’m gonna walk her [Floyd’s daughter Gigi] down the aisle. I’m gonna be there for her. I’m gonna be here to wipe your tears. I’m gonna be here for you and Gigi. Floyd might not be here, but I’m here for her, I’m here to get justice, and we’re gonna get justice for my brother,” Jackson said.
“We’re not leaving, we’re gonna keep fighting, we’re gonna send [Floyd] home in beautiful ways this week,” he added. “But I’m telling you: We are not leaving, we are gonna demand justice.”
All four police officers involved in Floyd’s death have been charged in connection to the crime.
