Reverend Al Sharpton took the opportunity to blast President Donald Trump during the memorial service for George Floyd -- saying that there is "wickedness in high places.
"This was not just a tragedy, it was a crime," Sharpton said. "This is a time that we need to understand that they are going to do everything they can to delay these trials to try to wear this family down. Until these people pay for what they did, we're going to be there with them. Because lives like George's do not matter until someone pays for taking their lives."
He continued, "Until we know the price for black life is the same as the price for white life, we're gonna keep coming back to these situations over and over again… We are not fighting some disconnected incidents. We are fighting an institutional systemic problem that has been allowed to permeate since we were brought to these shores. And we are fighting wickedness in high places."
