HART WORRIES FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

“If we do not do our job right now & do what we can to have a law put in place to help us feel protected in these streets then this type of crime will continue to happen,” the actor wrote on Instagram.

Hart’s post came together with a photo teaching his son how to bike, as he spoke from a father’s perspective who worries about his colored child.

The 46-year-old hoped to start a new life in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after losing work as a nightclub bouncer amid the state lockdown.

The “Jumanji” star strongly urged an “immediate ACTION” to be done for those in authority to be held accountable for their actions.

“We deserve the right to feel safe,” he added. “SOMETHING HAD TO CHANGE IN THE SYSTEM. Enough is Enough!”

HART’S MESSAGE TO THE MEDIA

The comedian previously spoke to the media and encouraged them to fix the narrative they sent to viewers as protests erupted, following the inhumane death of Floyd.

People from all over America are mad and have taken their anger to the streets to seek justice for Floyd. However, what comes out in the news is heavily focused on mass protests and unrest.

Hart asked media outlets to focus on the reasons behind the people who are fighting for justice. “You guys control the narrative,” he said. “Right now, I’m watching the narrative slowly change into the rioting, into the looting.”

THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD

Floyd died in the hands of a cop who knelt on his neck, while he lost consciousness and eventually passed away.

The City’s Mayor Jacob Frey called for the arrest of the cop who slowly killed Floyd while many witnesses and bystanders tried to help the victim.

Other officers involved in the murder have been fired from the police department as well. However, the Mayor ordered their arrest as well.
