Hours after Terrence Floyd urged protesters in Minneapolis to channel their anger over police brutality and the killing of his older brother, George Floyd, into activism in the form of peaceful demonstrations and voting, violence escalated in cities throughout the country.

Floyd implored those gathered at the memorial site where his older brother was killed a week earlier to stop vandalizing and tearing down the community.

“I know he would not want y’all to be doing this,” Floyd said, recounting that his brother had moved to the Twin Cities from Houston and loved the city.
