George Floyd to be Buried Today

George Floyd

Family and friends of African-born citizen George Floyd have begun preparations to pay their last respects. Today he will be cremated. The body of 46-year-old George, a Houston resident, has reached his hometown. The city’s police chief informs that George’s family is completely safe in the city.

Police Chief Art Acevedo said George Floyd would be buried next to his mother. Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden said he would meet with Floyd’s family in Houston. Although Biden would not attend the funeral, he will be delivering a video message for Floyd’s funeral.
People visited Floyd’s funeral before the funeral. Only invited people will be able to attend the funeral. Both events will take place in the same church. Mayor Sylvester Turner said that not all guests would be allowed to stay here more than 10 minutes. Those attending the funeral will be required to maintain physical distance and wear masks and gloves.

Two slogans are echoing in America these days – ‘No Justice, No Peace, No Racist Police’ and ‘Defend the Police’. They are saying that the matter is now more dependent on the accountability of the police than the death of George Floyd. Along with the protesters, the people’s representatives are also raising the voice of reforms in the police system.

Police took action to remove barricades from several locations so that protesters could walk to the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Manhattan Midtown. Meanwhile, after the relief from curfew, the protesters marched all night against police brutality. Mayor Bill de Blasio lifted the curfew just before eight o’clock. A few days ago there was a clash and sabotage in the city.
