Loveland, Ohio – This is an interview with Kristy McNally just after she came back from one of the Prayer Peace Walks that have been organized by Desmon Gault all last week.

The walks through Loveland neighborhoods were in response to the death of George Floyd who died in police custody on May 25 in the Powderhorn community of Minneapolis, Minnesota. While Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down on a city street during an arrest, Derek Chauvin, a white American Minneapolis police officer, kept his knee on the right side of Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds; according to the criminal complaint against Chauvin, 2 minutes and 53 seconds of that time occurred after Floyd became unresponsive.

McNally lives in the West Loveland Historic District with her husband Mike and their children.
