George Floyd's brother to lawmakers: 'Stop the pain'

The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives took up the issues of police violence and racial injustice in America on Wednesday in the first congressional hearing since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked protests around the world.

George Floyd's brother to lawmakers: 'Stop the pain'

"He didn't deserve to die over $20," Floyd's 42-year-old brother Philonise Floyd told lawmakers.

"I'm asking you, is that what a black man's worth?

$20?" George Floyd's death on May 25 after a policeman knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes was the latest in a string of killings of African-American men and women by police that have sparked anger on America's streets and fresh calls for reforms. "Iโ€™m here today to ask you to make it stop," Floyd said.

"Stop the pain.

Stop us from being tired."
