As the world mourned the death of George Floyd and fought for justice for Black Lives, many also began to speak out against the injustices, including police officers themselves.
One particular Officer, whose story we shared after he went viral for his Tik Tok video was recently fired from duty for expressing his thoughts.
Officer Willams posted a video on his account where he spoke about the murder of George Floyd and pleaded for other officers to not stay silent when they see a fellow officer doing something bad. He encouraged them to not be afraid to step in.
The Greensboro Police Department terminated him because they claim that his social media videos is a violation of department policy.
He did not post anything negative on his channel and was simply giving his side of the story as an officer.
He and his family are currently seeking legal action.
