Big salute to West for helping Floyd's daughter like this along with Arbery and Taylor's families. These victims all deserve justice now and we don't need to continue to allow white supremacists in law enforcement to continue to kill innocent black people. We cannot continue to simply have charges and arrests, but these criminals need to ,pay for their actions with strict prison sentences. Too many officers have gotten acquitted in regards to police brutality all over America for years.
