Meek Mill & Michael Rubin's Reform Alliance Calls For Arrest Of All Officers Involved In George Floyd's Murder

"This grave injustice must be addressed immediately."

(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop artist Meek Mill and Philadelphia 76ers partner Michael Rubin are part of a collective that makes up the REFORM Alliance. The organization's mission is to rectify the American criminal justice system.

Over the last week, Major demonstrations broke out in numerous cities across the country in protest of the murder of 46-year-old African-American George Floyd by Caucasian police officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis. REFORM Alliance has issued a statement about the case.

The REFORM Alliance's statement reads:

Last week, the nation and the world watched in horror as Officer Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds, murdering him in broad daylight. Despite Mr. Floyd’s repeatedly saying that he could not breathe and begging for help, two other officers continued to hold him down while a third stood watch, assisting the killing. The video of his horrific murder sparked outrage, protest and a nationwide call for justice for Mr. Floyd. That call was ignored by Hennepin County prosecutor Mike Freeman, who delayed in making any arrests. Then he chose to arrest only Officer Chauvin -- and charge him with third degree murder. Today, Governor Walz announced that he is referring the case of Mr. Floyd’s murder to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. This is a strong step in the right direction, which we welcome. But by no means has justice for Mr. Floyd been achieved. While preparations are being made for Mr. Floyd to be laid to rest, the three officers who assisted in his murder lay in their own beds at night as free men. This grave injustice must be addressed immediately, and our voices must be heard. We call for the immediate arrest of all the officers involved and for charges that reflect their roles in the murder of Mr. Floyd.

If you have a limited understanding, short-sighted, superficial understanding of everything, you're clearly eliminating yourself in modern society.

I applaud the White Folks that where in the protest as well first of all. I see a huge turn out if what America has been shocked about how some Law Enforcers are Killing unharmed innocent Black individuals.

There is slot to say about this also because let's not forget that there is Black on Black crime that has not stop as well.

This website is called AllHipHop for the Urban community. I rarely see positive or educational comments that could reach the awareness of the African American Community.

When they hear about anything that will trigger them it's all about reacting uncivilized and thinking Worldstar events.

On the other note there are going to be riots people are Fed up and going to react. It is what it is. The country of America and the government is not establishing a constitutional system amongst citizens in society.

There is no equal rights, broken law system and no good leadership in Congress. Everyone knows and the spoken ones are not getting a fair chance to voice a fair opinion.

America and all the international governments need Prayer. Dividing people and showing people you are not important is not the remedy.

The African American culture needs good structure, economics, good education and good leadership within the grassroots of their close communities first.

There is still going to be envy, hatred and passive crime regardless. I see these African American Entertainers talking about anything. Your lyrics has glorified enough so who is going to listen to your positive side for you to say rioting or crime is not going to solve anything.

Try to reach schools, community groups and African American Community Education districts. Donate to that teach them to invest for their community.

For them not just to listen to the radio while heading to work or playing songs dancing chilling with the family. Families need to educate each other on politics, unity, family values, business entrepreneurship and more.

How to network and work together like other cultures. It's a whole lot of ideas need to be acknowledge.

Stop thinking of the words racism and slavery. Future, Evolution, Social Awareness. The government needs to stop all this Social Distancing it's not going to help society or some Epidemic.
