Eric Adams wins NYC mayoral endorsement from George Floyd’s brother

“I lost my brother to police violence last year when an officer used their knee to choke him to death — but he was sadly just one of many, many Black men to be killed in that way,” Floyd said in a written statement. “More than 40 years ago, Arthur Miller was murdered by a police officer in New York when that officer used a nightstick to choke him to death. Arthur Miller’s death drove Rev. Herbert Daughtry to recruit young black men to join the NYPD and change it from the inside — and one of those men was Eric Adams.”
