Los Angeles, June 2 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 2nd Jun, 2020 ) :Golf superstar Tiger Woods called George Floyd's death a "shocking tragedy" but said violent protests were not the answer as unrest flared across the United States on Monday.
"I have always had the utmost respect for our law enforcement. They train so diligently to understand how, when and where to use force.
"This shocking tragedy clearly crossed that line." Woods' statement follows strong comments from a number of athletes including NBA legend Michael Jordan, who said he was "plain angry", and tennis player Coco Gauff, who asked: "Am I next?""I remember the LA riots and learned that education is the best path forward," wrote Woods, the 15-time major-winner. "We can make our points without burning the very neighbourhoods that we live in.
"I hope that through constructive, honest conversations we can build a safer, unified society."
