The Color Of Change and The Innocence Project have launched a petition calling on Texas Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles to grant a posthumous pardon to George Floyd after he served 10 months in prison for a wrongful 2004 drug conviction. In a statement released on the first year anniversary of the May 25 killing of Floyd, the two organizations said Floyd’s conviction was overturned after authorities reportedly established a former cop – Gerald Goines – may have fabricated evidence to implicate him. And although Floyd’s conviction was eventually overturned, the charge against him in connection to the alleged crime hasn’t been wiped from his record.
