These types of storeys are always bittersweet for us. Yes, it is good for the families of the women and men who have been slain by police to get significant damage for their incredible loss. But irrespective of how much money they are awarded, a human rights, living conditions of their loved one, is permanent. It’s also somewhat riling that a dollar extent is appended to that priceless life.

According to ABCNews, George Floyd‘s family has been granted a $27 million accommodation as approved by the Minneapolis City Council.

Attorney Ben Crump said in a statement Friday,” George Floyd’s horrific death, witnessed by millions of people around the world, unleashed a depth longing and undeniable demand for justice and change. That the largest pre-trial settlement in a wrongful demise lawsuit ever would be for the life of a Black man sends a strong letter that Black lives do matter and police savagery against people of color must end .”

Yes, the most crucial ever pretrial colonization is something worth noting but damn. Can we live?

” George’s gift for those who loved him has all along been his intent of optimism that things can get better, and we hope this agreement does simply that — that it meets things a little better in Minneapolis and inhibits up a light-footed for communities all over the country ,” Rodney Floyd said during a statement.

Meanwhile, the beginning stages of Floyd’s killer, Derek Chauvin, have started and as the lawyers for both sides search for the right jurors, there is still much trepidation about how the criminal part of this tragedy will play out. We don’t have any faith whatsoever in the justice system. We’ve seen this movie about fifty-leven days and the sequels are usually no better than the originals. We are looking forward to sweet child Jesus that TRUE justice is served but we’re fresh out of faith. $27 million doesn’t mean a damn thing if the man who killed George Floyd is allowed to walk the streets freely like nothing ever happened.
