New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, during his Saturday coronavirus press conference, touched on the situation surrounding the police killing of George Floyd.

Cuomo decried the continuing spat of black men killed by police, harkening back to Rodney King 30 years ago, saying, “he names change, but the color doesn’t.”

Cuomo then denounced violent protests in all forms, and announced New York Attorney General Letitia James would be reviewing the actions and procedures of the NYPD in the wake of Friday’s violent police behavior in Brooklyn.
