Terrence Floyd, George Floyd’s younger brother, called for an end to the violent protests, rioting and looting that have been carried out in his brother’s name.
"[S]ometimes I get angry, I want to bust some heads, too," Terrence Floyd told ABC News. "I wanna just go crazy. But I’m here. My brother wasn’t about that. My brother was about peace. You’ll hear a lot of people say he was a gentle giant."

Floyd died in police custody after ex-Officer Devin Chauvin kneeled on his neck for nearly 10 minutes, ignoring cries from the 46-year-old that he couldn’t breathe. Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Peaceful protests quickly turned violent and chaotic, spreading from Minneapolis to dozens of cities across the U.S. Looting, vandalism, rioting, and fires have been set in many areas. So far, approximately 16,000 National Guard troops have been deployed in 24 states and the District of Columbia to help contain the civil unrest.
