Hey there was even a protest in my small hometown of Victoria, Texas

Quenten White stood outside of the Victoria Police Department at 8 a.m. Monday by himself.

In the rain, White held up a sign that read “All Lives Matter When Black Lives Matter” and demanded justice for George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25 while a white Minneapolis police officer used his knee to pin his neck to the pavement for several minutes.

...............

About 20 people protested Floyd’s death on Friday along Navarro Street and a group of 25 people protested at DeLeon Plaza on Monday.

..........................

They were peaceful and at no time posed a risk to public safety, Chief J.J. Craig, of the Victoria Police Department, said in an email.

Craig fully respects the right to peacefully assemble and address grievances, he said, but “strongly condemns” acts of violence from those who are rioting and posing public safety risks.

He called the death of Gorge Floyd “tragic” and said he was disturbed to hear about the actions of officers involved.


“Their actions are contrary to the oath, we as law enforcement officers, have all taken to protect and serve the community,” he said. “It is unfortunate that this poor policing action overshadows the courageous and professional work done by our nation’s law enforcement.”
