“Mr. Freud died in our hands, so I think it was an accomplice,” Chief Medaria Arradondo told CNN’s Sara Sidner. “Silence and inaction, you are accomplices. If a lone voice will intervene … that’s what I want.”
After Freud’s brother asked the chief if he was willing to give justice to Freud, Aradado responded on Sunday. As the chief answered, Freud’s brother cried.
Aladodo called the killing “a violation of human behavior.” He said that apart from the removal of the officer, he did not need much time.
The chief said: “There are absolute truths in life; we need to breathe.” “It is absolutely wrong to kill Mr. Freud.”
He added: “I don’t need days, weeks or months, any process or bureaucracy can tell me what happened last Monday is wrong.”
Houston police chief wants to escort Freud’s body
Houston Police Commissioner Art Acevedo told CNN that he wanted his department to provide escort services when George Floyd’s body was returned to the city for burial.
“It will be a big deal for our city to take him home,” Acevedo told CNN’s Don Lemon on Sunday night. “We want to ensure the safety of our family and the safety of our actions, and most importantly, we must ensure that our family knows that we are here to support them.”
Acevedo said this was the first time he saw the leader of the police union say this, and he said it gave him hope for change.
“I just hope that we have reached a watershed here, and we will see some meaningful reforms involving the way to deal with bad police and the way to deal with criminals, which will completely destroy good work. The vast majority Police. “He said.
