George Floyd’s younger brother, Terrence, is calling for people to stop violent protests as the message about his brother is “absolutely” getting lost in the mayhem.
Speaking with ABC News, Terrence described he has been “numb” in the last week since his brother’s passing on May 25.
“I just had to come down here, and let people know, just channel your anger elsewhere,” he said.
"I'm outraged too. Sometimes, I feel angry & I want to bust some heads too … My brother wasn't about that. My brother was about peace."
You can tell the kind of man George Floyd was by the way his brother speaks.
Thank you, sir.pic.twitter.com/5uWib7V1wH

The brother also said he was “outraged” and “angry” but cautioned people against the continued use of violence as his brother “wasn’t about that.”
“I’m outraged too. Sometimes, I feel angry & I want to bust some heads too … My brother wasn’t about that. My brother was about peace. You’ll hear a lot of people saying, ‘He was a gentle giant,'” Terrence continued per the report.
He added: “Violence is not necessary. If his own family and blood is not doing it, then why are you? If his own family and blood is trying to deal with it and be positive about it and go another route to seek justice, then why are you out here tearing up your community?”
“Just relax. Justice will be served,” Terrence said.
