Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey provides an update on the George Floyd case.
Mister Mayor as a former police officer and as a member of the human race I applaud you for giving this press briefing today sir.
This was not a press briefing that was filled with cliches and cookie-cutter soundbites aimed at placating the family and the community while giving a wink and a nod to the police department that you have their backs in wrongdoing.
This was a heartfelt response that only the worst kind of critic could find insufficient. I applaud you for standing up for the citizens who elected you. Thank you for standing up for what’s right instead of what’s white.
You have absolutely earned my respect today.
