The George Floyd murder was horrific, and changed the country. Like Mr. Floyd, Corey Jones, a beloved member of Delray Beach and Palm Beach communities, was needlessly killed by a police officer. We thank Delray Beach for honoring Mr. Jones with a Proclamation and interest in a Statue in his honor.
