The incident has sparking outrage about police brutality against black people in this country, and while some people at the protests have turned to violence and looting, Floyd's own brother is asking for people to remain peaceful.

"Sometimes I get angry, I want to bust some heads, too," Terrance Floyd told ABC News' Alex Perez during an interview this weekend. "I wanna ... just go crazy. But I’m here. My brother wasn’t about that. My brother was about peace. You’ll hear a lot of people say he was a gentle giant."

He went on to add that protestors destroying their communities is "not necessary" to make their point.

"If his own family and blood are 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?" he asked. "Because when you’re finished and turn around and want to go buy something, you done tore it up. So now you messed up your own living arrangements. So just relax. Justice will be served."

The justice for Floyd involved prosecuting the officers involved in his killing. So far, only Chauvin has been charged, but Floyd and his family want the other three cops to be indicted as well.

"I want to see all of them get punished to the full extent for what they did to my brother," Floyd said. "Because when I saw the videos, not only was the dude on his neck ... not only that, you got the other three officers behind the camera, behind the car on him. So he can’t move."

So far, there has been very little coming from the White House in terms of pleading for peace and unity. Instead, Donald Trump has blamed the violence on ANTIFA and the media.

“The Lamestream Media is doing everything within their power to foment hatred and anarchy. As long as everybody understands what they are doing, that they are FAKE NEWS and truly bad people with a sick agenda, we can easily work through them to GREATNESS!” he wrote on Sunday.
