In a word, no. Bring it.
NO! It's absolutely not.
Rectum, he’ll, it killed him
I disagree with you /sarc indicator.
What you said is not sarcasm, it’s a fact.
The left, including the MSM, adjust or create facts to fit the political narrative.
They’ve been doing it since Walter Cronkite.
It kind of was about Floyd though.
The victim chosen needs to partake of a certain amount of apparent unsuitability. Square peg round hole type of stuff. Once selected he will be sanctified. Once sanctified his sainted status will drive logical thinkers who require persuasion to justify being down with the struggle crazy when they think of all the messed up things so many partisans and know-nothings are so willing to overlook.
Also it appears only African American males whose lineage is purely American are eligible for use by the hucksters, once again, even if they have a host of sharp corners needing to be broken and rough edges sanded down. Similarly-situated black victims who hail from or whose families hail from from other places like Jamaica or other Carribean islands, or even from Africa, may as well be white for the lack of ripples their death created/propagated. We had one in New Jersey this spring who definitely would have fit the bill, but he was a Carribean-American, so, ... crickets.
So if Floyd was in Chicago and he was offed by one of his bruthas, we would have never heard of him?
BLM has already extorted $2 billion from corporate America. NFL, MLB and NBA are giving the BLM millions in free advertising with reference to the cause every game. BLM gets more publicity than any legitimate charity in the media and by now collected more cash than most big charities combined.
BLM has won this skirmish in the 2020 Civil/Cultural War. If the cops go free they collect more extortion money. If the cops are sent to prison they look for a new victim/champion to extort more money. Extortion is the game if only Je$$e Jack$on could have figured this scam years ago.
Seems likely that that's why he resisted arrest.
Nope,it’s about November.
We knew there was only one reason that the body cam footage was not being released.
This is mostly just the right optics re: the original video. My guess is that all of the remaining evidence will be exculpatory for the officers.
That said, I have to question the tactics of trying to get Floyd into the back seat. Big dude like that, if he doesn’t want to get in the car, just trying to jam him in isn’t going to work. You could try a snoutful of pepper spray (but that probably won’t work because he’s so high), or maybe try the hobble. But, seriously, when the dude is so obviously high (you can hear one of the cops say they found a pipe, might be pcp or something), he’s gonna need to go to the hospital for a minimum “OK to book”. Just sit him on the curb until fire gets there with the ketamine.
Compare it to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6HvvPC2hL0
When once it was found out that it was a DUI cop they used kid gloves WAY before any force, much less ever deadly force, was ever used.
My friend’s dad from awhile ago was a Detroit cop. And he basically said every single one was beaten to near death on arrest.
it wasn’t just attorneys....it was national pundits, national elected officials, judges, celebrities, and so called “professional” athletes....Chavin was called a murderer and the dying of Floyd was called “murder” for months now...
First of all, I think there is a lot more going on than is being reported.
The thrust of the BLM complaint and riots is that an innocent black man was “murdered” by the police. Well, if you looked closely at the Police training manual it allowed the use of certain kinds of neck restrains in certain situations. It also banned other types of neck restraints. I strongly suspect that the knee on shoulder/neck restraint may have been in or close to what was taught as appropriate. Of course that will be for a jury to decide.
“Murder” has a technical legal meaning. There are many degrees of murder. However, the usual definition involves death “...without any warrant, justification, or excuse in law. with malice aforethought, express or implied, that is, with a deliberate purpose or a design or determination distinctly formed in the mind before the commission of the act....” A police office following departmental training would be hard to convict in front of a fair jury.
The next serious question was if there was a relationship (past work in a bar) between the police officer and the person who died. If there was a past relationship and it had anything to do with what the police officer was thinking, then the court case could be a real zoo.
I think that the Prosecutor is going to have a very hard case to prove. And Body Camera footage could make it even harder as it would give the Jury a police officer perspective on what was happening.
George Floyd illustrates what happens when a mind is fried on drugs. I never saw an imbecile as messed up as Floyd. Directions from the officer went in one ear and out the other. Compare to him, my cat is Einstein.
He promised to do what the police said, but he kept resisting. He also sid “I cant breathe,” long before the police had him on the ground.
