Hundreds of mourners packed a Houston, Texas church today for the funeral of George Floyd.

He was the black man whose death has inspired a worldwide reckoning over racial injustice.

Floyd was killed May 25th as a white Minneapolis police officer pressed a knee on Floyd's neck.

His niece, Brooke Williams, became emotional as she questioned why officers held her uncle down.

She says the accused officer watched as ``his soul left his body.'' Floyd's death sparked international protests.
