Would George Floyd have wanted more violence? | Letter to the Editor

Editor's note: The following is from Iris Brown, a 15-year-old at Edmonds-Woodway High School.
This morning, I watched a video of a man having the life choked out of him by a racist white police officer.
The scene was horrific, something I did not think even happened anymore. I sat there, not wanting to see any more. My parents then showed me the protests in "honor" of George Floyd. Looting stores, burning buildings to the ground, and even injuring disabled storeowners.
Is this what George Floyd would have wanted? More violence? How would Martin Luther King Jr. react if he were here today...
