Supervisor Sequanna Taylor Speaks Out on George Floyd Murder, Protests
“There is an African proverb that says, ‘The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.’
“No one wants to see their village burning, but we understand the pain and frustration that has led to this moment because we live with that pain every day.
“We are passed tired of watching our Black brothers and sisters killed by police because of the color of their skin.
“We are passed tired of watching police who beat and lynch our Black brothers and sisters literally get away with murder when the whole world can see what happened.
“We are passed tired of seeing more and more money go towards policing instead of investing in the future of our Black children
“We are passed tired of watching our Black brothers and sisters sent to prison on bogus charges when white police officers are never even charged for being accomplices to a murder that they participated in, like the three officers who participated in the murder of Mr. George Floyd.
“We demand accountability for each police officer involved in Mr. Floyd’s murder and we stand fully behind the peaceful protestors who have been out in the streets of Milwaukee demanding justice.”
