Skip to comments.Some of Floyd's 2019 arrest evidence admissible in Chauvin trial, judge rules
Posted on 03/19/2021 7:15:01 PM PDT by Varsity Flight
Video from 2019 evidence allowed in.
Pattern of behavior. Pill injestion
Why would it not be?
Good. It clearly shows that Floyd’s difficulty breathing began well before he was restrained by Chauvin while he was sitting in the back of the police car. He was having a heart attack.
All such cases should allow a mandatory top ten felonies of the criminal who passed away to be allowed for the jury to see.
The narrative has been woven and that's all that will matter.
Recall hands up don't shoot was fake.
St Skittles was fake.
Rodney King was fake.
The facts are there for anyone to verify.
When this trial begins avoid urban areas and concentrations of blacks. It won't be pretty.
Some of the evidence. Not all of it.
Floyd was on the ground for almost 9 minutes being strangled to death by Chauvin and, yet, there are no signs of neck trauma, head trauma, conjunctival petachiae? Nothing?
And Floyd was complaining of difficulty breathing when he was in the back of the car?
That's well past reasonable doubt.
I won’t argue that he wasn’t on drugs and didn’t have a heart attack. But putting your knee firmly on ones necks for nine minutes isn’t going to help the defense lawyers. Especially when he says he can’t breathe.
Because the Prosecutor wants a notch on his belt, not justice.
The only hope this cop possibly has is in the Federal appeals courts.
The left wants a not guilty verdict so the cities will burn again!

I think it will be the same result as Trayvon/Zimmerman. There are jurors on the jury that seem they won’t be swayed by public opinion. Also, Floyd has the exact same behavior during the 2019 arrest as the 2020. Reluctant, but not rebellious, then breaking down and crying for sympathy. It’s a pattern of behavior.
Add that to the toxicology report numbers, him having COVID, and MPD allowing the knee to the head hold, and it’s pretty clear the worst Chauvin can get is negligence.
What I want to know is - what implications does Chauvin working the same disreputable club as Floyd exist? Floyd was a multiple felon - why was he hired? Was he the drug dealer for the club? That’s the direction I want the defense to go into.
He was saying that before he was laid out on his stomach.
The race grievance hustlers are gonna see racism in everything. And racism is seem through the lens of Cultural Marxism.
I’m reminded of a joke where Nike said looters could exchange shoes for those that fit properly.
The court has to thread a needle between keeping it relevant while not trying to portray Floyd as a bad character. This is a good call as it does establish a pattern and the defense is clearly going for Floyd dying due to his own actions.
“All such cases should allow a mandatory top ten felonies of the criminal who passed away to be allowed for the jury to see.”
Top 10. :-) That’s funny ... and spot on.
The rioters will riot either way. Even if the guy was found guilty, they’d complain that he wasn’t hung immediately and there are others somehow guilty.
The question was rhetorical, but I whole heartily agree with your reply. It is, in my humble opinion, a major flaw in the legal system that prosecutors are permitted to try to prevent evidence that might exonerate a suspect from being presented, but they do. Their ‘carriers’ depend upon their ‘wins’, not whether someone is innocent or guilty.
And also, when the wrong sort of persons are accused, they may act (D)ifferently and withhold evidence that may lead to a conviction.
