A young black man has gone viral after he walked up to a bunch of state troopers while carrying a case of water.
In Pittsburgh, Alexander Cash, 23-year-old, is seen delivering water to riot police guarding a Target in Pittsburgh during Black Lives Matter demonstration.
According to reports, Cash approached a bunch of officers in an East Liberty Target car park on Sunday. May 31. He was carrying a multipack of water bottles, which was donated to protesters.
Cash was one of the organizers of the protest, as per reports.
He walked up to the officers and said: “I know you guys are thirsty.”
“I’m just trying to spread a message, okay? I know you guys are out here doing your jobs. I’m not mad at you. I’m mad at the ones that are doing it to us, do you understand?” He continued.
“We came out here peaceful, that’s what I’m trying to show you.”
Cash ripped open the water pack and left it there for the officers to take at their own will.
Millions of people continue to protest the death of George Floyd, demanding justice for both Floyd and millions of people of color in the U.S. — and worldwide.
The four police officers involved in the death of George Floyd were arrested. We hope justice is served, and they get what they deserve.
Thank you, Cash, for the courage of organizing a peaceful protest and even going ahead and bridging the gap between citizens and officers.
