“Tiger Woods issued a superb statement,” conservative pundit Mark Levin said Tuesday, sharing the legendary golfer’s comment on the death in police custody of George Floyd that sparked protests, riots and looting across the nation.
“We can make our points without burning the very neighborhoods that we live in,” Woods’ says in his statement denouncing both Floyd’s death at the hands of a policeman and the destruction of communities that has followed it.
Education, not destruction of communities, is “the best path forward,” Woods says:
“My heart goes out to George Floyd, his loved ones and all of us who are hurting right now. I have always had the utmost respect for our law enforcement. They train so diligently to understand how, when and where to use force. This shocking tragedy clearly crossed that line.
“I remember the LA riots and learned that education is the best path forward. We can make our points without burning the very neighborhoods that we live in.
“I hope that through constructive, honest conversations we can build a safer, unified society.”
