The biological mother of the six-year old daughter of sadly murdered African American George Floyd, Gianna was soaked in tears as she pleaded to the world to remember Floyd as a good father and a good man.
These sorrowful words streamed from the mouth of Roxie Washington as Gianna stood by her side ;”I wanted everybody to know that this is what those officers took from me”
“At the end of the day, they get to go home and be with their families.
Gianna does not have a father. He will never see her grow up, graduate.
He will never walk her down the aisle. If there is a problem, she is having and she needs a dad, she does not have that any more”.
She came out with these words a week after Floyd was brutally murdered by by a white police offer who callously knelt on his neck for close to nine minutes in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Intercepted video which went viral shows Floyd repeatedly pleading “I can’t breath” before loosing his life, still under the officer’s knee.
According to a private autopsy report, the 46-year old died of asphyxiation due to the neck and back compression by the police officer.
A medical examiner at Hennepin County detailed that Mr. Floyd “experienced a cardiopulmonary arrest while being restrained by law enforcement officer”.
