Texas Board Denies Posthumous Pardon For George Floyd

Texas Board Denies Posthumous Pardon For George Floyd The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles has denied a posthumous pardon of George Floyd for a minor 2004 drug conviction.

The Board itself had recommended the pardon to Gov. Greg Abbott last October, but later rescinded it over a procedural error. On Thursday, the Board unanimously rejected the pardon.  Floyd’s attorney can reapply for the pardon in two years.

Should Floyd’s record in Texas be pardoned?  What would be the symbolic value of such a gesture?
