On May 25, 2020 the country watched in horror, a viral video of Officer Derek Chauvin, (using what the Major City Chiefs Association calls a technique “inconsistent with the training and protocol” of law enforcement) MURDER 46 year old George Floyd. 

As the world mourned, rallied, and protested, Petal, MS Mayor, Hal Marx tweeted that he “didn’t see anything unreasonable”, and “most likely that man died of overdose or heart attack”. Later adding to Facebook “if you can talk you can breathe”.

The insensitive remarks led to the Board of Aldermen and concerned citizens calling a special meeting on May 29th to persuade Marx to step down.

The citizens and Aldermen stood in solidarity, in a packed meeting room, as threats of riots and days of protest were being organized throughout the country. The citizens of Petal, MS no longer feel Hal Marx is a representative voice for their communities. As temperatures rise around the country, the citizens of Petal want peace. With Marx as Mayor, the city fears conflict will surely arise. 

His response to the people saying they do not want protests in the streets because they do not share his views, 

“I will never surrender to the mob mentality.” - Hal Marx
