“My boy was doing what he was supposed to be doing and ya’ll go and kill my brother, man.”
Stephen Jackson spent Tuesday emotionally reflecting on his time with George Floyd — a man the former NBA star says he called “twin” — and he’s now demanding justice for the 46-year-old after officers appeared to have killed him Monday.
Jackson says he spent his childhood in the same Houston, Texas circles as Floyd … and claims the two were so close, he had just sent the guy clothes days before his death this week.
“Floyd was my brother,” Jackson said. “We called each other twins, bruh. Everybody knows me and Floyd called each other twins. My brother was only out there in Minnesota, he was trying to change his life.”
42-year-old Jackson says he’s now on his way to Minnesota … and he’s promising to help find justice for George after a cop pinned him down with a knee to the neck and wouldn’t let go.
“I can’t let this ride, dawg,” Jackson said. “Ya’ll not going to be mad until it hits ya’ll front door. Bullsh*t.”
As we previously reported, Floyd died in Minneapolis, Minn. after officers responded to a call about a forgery in progress on Monday.
During the stop, officers held down George for several minutes … despite the man telling cops he could not breathe.
The FBI is now investigating the incident … while all four officers involved have been fired.
