The emotional lady said she wanted everyone to know that Gianna was denied the chance of ever seeing her father again and the late would never see her grow up and graduate school.
"I wanted everybody to know that this is what those officers took. At the end of the day, they get to go home and be with their families. Gianna does not have a father. He will never see her grow up, graduate, he will never walk her down the aisle, if there's a problem she's having and she needs her dad, she does not have that anymore," Roxie said amid tears

Roxie added she was there to ask for justice and also to be with his little girl who was denied the chance of ever seeing her father again.
"I want justice for him because he was good. No matter what anybody thinks, and this is the proof," she added while pointing to Gianna.
The sorrowful mother noted the deceased had moved to Minneapolis without them in search of work but still supported them.
Roxie was accompanied by her two lawyers Chris Stewart and Justin Miller and former NBA player Stephen Jackson who was a friend of the deceased.
All four of the officers present during Floyd's arrest have been fired but only the officer who kept his knee on the African-American's neck, Derek Chauvin, has been charged.
Chauvin was taken into custody Friday, May 29, and was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
The lawyers also wanted the three other officers to face charges, calling the lack of it an obvious failure.
