From Vatican News:
Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) expressed the US bishops’ sentiments in a statement on Sunday following the death of George Floyd on May 25 in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The bishops also deplored the “self-destructive and self-defeating” violence, which they said “does not advance the cause of racial equality and human dignity.” Footage of a white police officer using his knee to pin the 46-year old Floyd to the ground, while the handcuffed man pleaded he could not breathe, went viral on social media, whipping up nationwide violent protests. “The killing of George Floyd was senseless and brutal, a sin that cries out to heaven for justice,” the US bishops’ president wrote, sharing the “outrage of the black community and those who stand with them in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and across the country”.
