‘They showed no mercy,’ HPD chief delivers emotional speech amid the death of George Floyd
Houston Chief Art Acevedo With An Emotional Speech For Protesters
Houston Police chief Art Acevedo stands in solidarity with those outraged by the death of George Floyd, a Houston-native who was killed while in police custody.
As protests emerge across the country and in Houston, Acevedo said he has marched with the protestors, including rappers Trae the Truth and Bun B in the Third Ward, where Floyd grew up.
“We have a man, a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, a Houstonian and a child of God that was killed by servants, that suppose to be servants of God,” Acevedo said in an emotional speech at a local church Sunday. “They showed no mercy when they put their knee on his neck.” Source
