Rep. Jackson Lee: ‘There Will Be No More 8 Minutes and 46 Seconds of Police Brutality’

‘There will be no more 8 minutes and 46 seconds that you will be in pain without getting justice’

EXCERPT:

JACKSON LEE: “And so, my friends, I don’t know if I’ll ever get 8 minutes and 46 seconds, Reverend Sharpton, out of my DNA. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to overcome the words 'I can’t breathe.' Eric Garner’s mother and Trayvon Martin’s mother and all the mothers, and Robbie Tolan. 'I can’t breathe.' But what I will say, that the assignment of George Floyd and the purpose will mean there will be no more 8 minutes and 46 seconds of police brutality. There will be no more 8 minutes and 46 seconds of injustice and the mistreatment of African-American men at the hands of the laws of this nation and anyone else. There will be no more 8 minutes and 46 seconds that you will be in pain without getting justice. His assignment turned into a purpose and that purpose was around the world that there are people are rising up that will never sit down until you get justice.”
