Phaedra Parks shared a message about the case of George Floyd. Check out what she feels about the final verdict.
‘When I heard the verdict was ready, I immediately went home to share this moment in history with my two sons. Words can not adequately describe my emotions when I heard “Guilty” on all counts. I cried for all the black mothers who have lost their sons to police brutality and we don’t know their names and their cases will never be heard. I cried for all the mothers like myself who worry about the “with if” every time their black son leaves home. As an attorney I cried because I know how hard it is to get a verdict in these cases and I acknowledge and applaud the brilliant job the prosecutorial team and attorney general did in making sure this case was charged correctly and adjudicated properly,’ Phaedra wrote.
She continued and said: ‘This verdict is the first step towards establishing accountability for law enforcement when policing black and brown people in the criminal justice system. Justice won’t be fully served until all black and brown people can drive and walk boldly without fear of the police. But, on today I thank God for this victory 🙏🏾 #RIP #GeorgeFloyd Great job #JerryBlackwell #KeithEllison,’ Phaedra captioned her post.
