George Floyd's brother pleaded for peace in the streets Monday, saying violence is "not going to bring my brother back at all."

Speaking in Minneapolis, Terrence Floyd made an emotional plea for peace at the site of where his brother was pinned to pavement by an officer who put his knee on the handcuffed Black's man neck for several minutes.

"Let's switch it up ya'll. Let's switch it up. Do this peacefully, please," Terrence Floyd said.

The crowd chanted, "What's his name? George Floyd!" and "One down, three to go!" in reference to the four officers involved in Floyd's arrest.

Officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with murder, but protesters are demanding that his colleagues be prosecuted, too. All four were fired.

The gathering was part rally and part impromptu eulogy as Floyd urged people to stop the violence and use their power at the ballot box.

"If I'm not over here messing up my community, then what are you all doing?" he said. "You all are doing nothing. Because that's not going to bring my brother back at all."
