  • Ex-officer who knelt on George Floyd's neck charged with murder

    The officers didn’t give a damn when Mr. Floyd expired and the one idiot kept his knee on the dead man until the EMT told him to move. Sorry, these idiot cops started this and I will never forget that.
    ——————————————————-
    The criminal complaint stated that the body cam video showed Mr. Floyd screaming out “I can’t breathe” while he was standing up. He also was saying that he was claustrophobic. This goof was high as a kite on drugs, and the police were obviously holding him down as they were concerned for his safety and the safety of others. Obviously, the officer used inappropriate and excessive force. But he did not choke him or cut off his airway. The autopsy proves that this man did not die from a lack of oxygen. That’s why everybody is so upset because they think this goof couldn’t breathe. He absolutely was breathing the whole time he was claiming that he couldn’t breathe. These savages should be shot, no questions asked. The medical examiner couldn’t even state with certainty that the officers’ actions caused this guy’s death. And they charge him with murder? Basically, cities are burning everywhere because a bunch of savages refused to wait for the outcome of the autopsy, which shows that the officer did not kill this guy. So everybody should increase their fire insurance after this officer is acquitted.

  • George Floyd’s preliminary autopsy raises the question: Was this another rush to judgement?Asphyxiation not the cause of death

    Apparently the prosecutor believes the cop to be the proximate cause of death and believes he can prove it
    —————————————————-
    More likely, the DA was trying to stop a riot. At his press conference, he gave some milquetoast statement about how he had “probable clause“ to charge the officer. That isn’t very compelling. Two things can be true at the same time. The officer used excessive force, but that excessive force had nothing to do with this man’s death. Unfortunately, a collection of savages decided not to wait for the facts to come in, but instead burn down cities based on incomplete information. The criminal complaint indicates that Mr. Floyd was shouting “I can’t breathe“ while he was standing up! This goof was obviously under the influence of some drug, The police were holding him down as a fear he was a threat to himself or others, and he ultimately died of cardiac arrest triggered by his drug use. If that’s the case, having a knee on someone’s neck has absolutely no connection to his death.

    So if the cop brutally kneeled on your dad’s neck for 8 minutes as he lay handcuffed and helpless face down in the street, Would anyone except the argument the cop wasn’t responsible for the death?
    —————————————-
    If my dad was high on PCP I’d accept the findings. Intelligent people make their decisions based on evidence and facts, not emotion. Two things can be true. The police officer used excessive force, but that excessive force had absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Floyd‘s death. Are you suggesting that the officer is guilty of murder if his actions did not actually cause the death? By the way, this goofball Mr. Floyd was screaming “I can’t breathe” while he was standing up! The whole reason everybody is fired up is that they mistakenly believe that the officer strangled him by having his knee on his neck. That’s not true. The autopsy proves that he did not die from lack of oxygen.

    In a case like this which is priority number one for the laboratory, I can’t believe it would take less than 24 hours. I think they already know what drugs were in his system. My gut says they are slow walking this autopsy as it is favorable to the police officers. The fact that the attorneys for the family are seeking an independent autopsy tells me that they have been tipped off as to the results, which they do not like. Stay tuned.

    Not everyone. I think the fact that George Floyd was screaming “I can’t breathe” while he was STANDING UP will wake folks up. Personally, I think its the younger generation. Very little civility amongst the Millennials. Black and white, but no gray, just as you say.

    Okay, having read the entire thing, I see that he started saying he couldn’t breathe while he was still standing. That he apparently went to the ground of his own volition. That he was breathing for the first 5 minutes of the time he was pinned, and then he stopped.
    I see that the three officers all realized he had stopped breathing, but did nothing about it. It doesn’t seem like his death was entirely due to having the knee on his neck, but it is certainly true that once he stopped breathing, they made no attempt to revive him.
    ______________________________________________________
    What the report shows is that when Mr. Floyd was yelling out things like “I can’t breathe,” he was doing so under the influence of drugs. He was saying “I can’t breathe” while standing up outside of a squad car! He was claiming that he was “claustrophobic” 5 minutes after he was inside of his own car! He was high on drugs. So when he was on the ground saying “I can’t breathe,” he could breathe (obviously). That’s why everyone is so ticked off—they think this goof was being choked/strangled with a knee. He died because he was high on drugs and had a bad heart, something that happens every day. The police had him restrained to prevent him endangering himself or others. The ambulance was on the way. This is a WEAK case. Even the medical examiner’s finding does not establish solid proof that the officer caused this guy’s death. (Of course, I do note that putting a knee on one’s neck is over-the-top). Basically, a city has been burned down for nothing.

    He stops moving and breathing, they checked for a pulse. AND KEPT HIS KNEE ON HIS NECK FOR ANOTHER TWO MINUTES?????
    I predict he’ll cop a plea. If not, guilty in less than 30 minutes deliberation.
    _______________________________________________________
    The whole reason America is upset and Minneapolis is burning is because the average dingbat thinks that this guy actually could NOT breathe. Now we have the criminal complaint and the body cam shows that George Floyd was yelling out “I can’t breathe” while he WAS STANDING UP!!! This goof was high on PCP or something similar. He refused to get into the squad car claiming he was claustrophobic—5 minutes after he was just inside a car!! This case is WEAK beyond belief. Now we know why the DA didn’t charge. Even the autopsy is milquetoast—the death was “likely” caused by drugs, heart condition, and the officers. In other words, “I the medical examiner cannot state with certainty that anything the officers did caused this man’s death.”

    OMG. This drunk/high bastard was yelling out “I can’t breathe” while he WAS STANDING UP!!!. He was claiming that he was “claustrophobic” and that’s why he was refusing to get in a police car—this was 5 minutes after he was pulled from the driver’s seat of another car. THIS IS WHY YOU WAIT FOR ALL OF THE FACTS TO COME OUT. He did die from being strangled or asphyxiated. He died because he was high on some undisclosed drug. This case against this officer is WEAK beyond belief. Again, two things can be true: Officer Chauvin used excessive force (he did), but his excessive force was NOT the cause of George Floyd’s death.

    In other words, there is no way that the prosecutors can prove that the police officer is guilty of any type of murder or manslaughter. The medical examiner in the autopsy stated that the restraint by the police officers “likely“ in combination with other factors led to his death. You don’t convict people based on the standard of “likely“. You convict people on proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Now you see why the DA was hesitant to file charges in the first place.

    And before someone calls me a racist, allow me to point out that two things can be simultaneously true. First, it can be true that the officer used excessive and unreasonable force. Second, it can be true that that excessive and unreasonable force had nothing to do with this man’s death. By the way, I think I was lectured about 20 times over the last three days by various comments about how the victim died because he couldn’t breathe. This autopsy totally debunks the conventional wisdom that he died from lack of oxygen. Yes, he COULD BREATHE!!!!

    First, all of the facts are not in. We still don’t know the results of the autopsy. And we still have no video that shows what prompted three police officers to pin Mr. Floyd to the ground.

    Second, the fact that this officer was only charged with manslaughter suggests that the evidence is not particularly strong to show that the officers’ excessive force CAUSED THE DEATH . The district attorney gave some ham-handed explanation of the charge stating that they had “sufficient probable cause to charge him.” In my experience, that is a somewhat lame explanation of the charges that you just filed. To lawyers, probable cause is understood as a very slight standard.

    There are two developments in this case that should be a red flag to those who think this is a slam dunk case. Yesterday, the DA indicated that there was “other evidence that does not support the charge“ against the officers. Second, the victims‘s family through their attorney has indicated that they are seeking a independent autopsy. Obviously, these Democrat-connected lawyers were advised of the preliminary autopsy results. The only rational explanation as to why they will be seeking an independent autopsy is that they are not happy with the results of the official autopsy.

    My position all along has been to wait for the evidence and withhold judgment until that evidence is disclosed. I have stated at least 40 times that I have an open mind. There is a huge red flag that is waving that these officers did not cause the death of the victim. Two things can be true at the same time. First, it can be true that the officers used excessive force. Second, it can also be true that the excessive force did not cause the victims’s death. Until the autopsy results are made public, I still strongly caution that everyone should withhold judgment.
