For those who try to defame the victim with drug or crime, you should know the root cause is the fundamental racial injustice and inequality of this country. When African Americans were enslaved, then “freed” but left with no land or wealth to start with, this kind of tragedies were programmed in the DNA of this country.

Since the defence believes so much that chauvin did not kill Floyd, they should put him down and make someone kneel so his neck for 8minites. After that ,if he lives then we can say chauvin did not kill Floyd.

The guy was a LIFELONG CRIMINAL AND ADDICT! Stop pretending he was some upstanding citizen who got abused by the cops and taken advantage of. Total BS and the media wants to portray Floyd-a guy who pistol whipped and held a pregnant woman at hun point (pointed at her pregnant stomach) as he robbed her in her own home that he broke into-as some sort of Saint! Bull-fkn sh*t

Because it is not a fair objective assessment of what transpired in the trial for the day reported. For example she made sure to mention the police chief stating that Cheuvin used excessive force by placing the knee on the neck but she made absolutely no comment whatsoever about the police chief seeing the different camera angle and stating under oath that the knee was on the shoulder blade. She completely left that extremely damning fact out. There is no windpipe on a shoulder blade. Pay attention to who is framing the narrative and know why. USA Today is one of facebooks go to sources for fact checks and their fact checks have been shown time and time again to be extremely one sided and bias.

The cop that on trail, didn't care of the life he took. if you ask me the cop and Floyd was both wrong. Floyd should have done what the cop said and maybe he be alive today. And the cop was wrong for giving Floyd a slow death. So because people don't put god first in there life, this is what happens!🤔. You said that there's books before the bible. Well Satan been around before the bible. That's why he can blind your thinking and your understanding.

It's amazing that SEVEN cops beat Kelly Thomas TO DEATH in California and this case isn't even known to most people. Let alone the fact that all 7 got off scott free. Same with Daniel Shaver who was gunned down in cold blood in Arizona and Robert Leone who was beaten so severely he had to be taken to the ER twice in one night by the Pennsylvania State police. They even charged Robert Leone with assault of a cop when the cop broke his hand hitting him. But, those cases don't have the race hate, inflammation value of this case that the democrat controlled media so desires.

I know I know. Enforcing the law is full of obstacles, intricacies, and technicalities. But straight up murder should not be a question. They should be charged just like any other civilian who committed murder. They need to change these archaic ways of policing. Employees of private sector constantly have their job in threat for minor mistakes. And these guys get a tax-payer funded pension after killing. It’s not rocket science America. Instead of investing in bullets and missiles, invest in education and you may just have a populace that needs less policing. Teachers of the year getting laid off and paid $40k ain’t right. But then again, a public education system has no incentive to make people knowledgeable about taxes, finances, credit, and law, for that would result in the fall of capitalism.

I see a lot of people saying there's a side by side video. If anyone has a link to that, can you please drop a link in the replies because I'm curious. Regardless of whether or not Derek was kneeling on his neck or shoulder, it doesn't matter. The right common carotid and the right subclavian arteries are both in the area he would have been kneeling on. You stifle any artery, you're going to cause huge problems. So this "he was kneeling on the shoulder, not the neck" argument still doesn't fly medically.

No, you can be compressed in many different ways for many different lengths of time and not have a cardiac arrest. Prisoners of war, for example. Freak accidents. Assaults. You name it, I've probably reviewed a case involving just that in my line of work. But fentanyl, especially meth plus fentanyl, is another story. It's not spreading hate, you heard the ER doc, those drugs are a cause, and he would know, and so would I. Whatever happens in the trial, I'm glad his dealer is not free, because peddling that trash is absolutely tantamount to murder. Oh, yeah, I'm a moderate, not alt-left, not alt-right.

@Yharim He didn't threaten anyone, "projector of the night" award winner.

Albert, the guy who hates the police as much as you do, was the only one who alluded to dispatching those who disagreed with him through the use of a completely different technique than the one was used on Floyd.

His knee wasn't ON his neck. The man died of an overdose, plain and simple. Look for more than just things that will prop up your confirmation bias, like body cam videos that show an entirely different tale, from beginning to end. Hating something, or someone, makes it very easy to be deceived about it or him, as you're willing to believe anything that reinforces that hatred.

@Djfinzz when is it police protocol to kneel on a mans neck for nine minutes? In a known position that compromises breathing, when is it police protocol to ignore your duty as a police officer and not give medical attention to an unconscious man. The police chief himself said when he was on the ground and handcuffed that’s when the force should have ended. If this was protocol, chauvin wouldn’t have had a reason to keep it from his superiors. Both The Doctor Who called George Floyd’s death and the second autopsy said that George Floyd died from asphyxiation (suffocation)
Djfinzz
Djfinzz 16 ditë më parë
@The original Fire hybrid He had a violent history and was a career criminal. They used non-lethal force to subdue him, so the force matched the threat. The drugs in his system plus the stressful situation is what caused him to die. You can't say I can't breathe if you can't breathe. That seems self-evident to me, but apparently not to many other people. He was talking and screaming the entire encounter non-stop. He could breathe just fine. When it comes to the cops actions, whether or not you agree with the protocol, they were following protocol and that is proven. If you don't like the knee om the neck position, your anger should be focused at the police department training rather than Derek Chauvin. He was just following procedure. I'm sure why you don't believe how much fentanol he had in his system. He had 11ng in his blood, 3ng is considered an overdose. Add meth on top of that and it is a deadly cocktail. Accidents happen, which this clearly was. I think the cops acted correctly based on their training, though I think the protocol needs to be changed, and I think George could've avoided the entire situation if he just would've complied and stopped resisting.

Prosecution: "So no one is trained in this restrait?" Officer: "Correct." Defense: "So you were the one who taught Mr. Chauvin this restraint?" Officer: "Correct." Everyone should be watching the trial instead of these edited clips. The defense is annihilating the prosecutor's case. You don't think that if you are only watching these clips.

Someone’s getting money under table...More likely than not the guy doesn’t want to bring bad publicity on himself so it’s easier for him to succumb to the left

What happened to the clip of the chief agreeing that it looked like Chauvin’s knee was on Floyd’s shoulder, not his neck....?? Are we picking and choosing what to show to the masses?? Typical.

@Exasperaties what? I’m not understanding what you’re trying to say here lol 🤔🤔 What I’m referring to was said in the same testimony these clips were taken from. “Media outlets” are constantly picking and choosing which clips/sound bits to use, as well as omitting others that are of importance. They just want to push their own agenda and narrative. The truth should be what’s important. And sadly a lot of ppl just take these short snippets like this at face value, and don’t do any digging for the unedited information. 🤷🏻‍♀️

@Laharlchan220 Or I don't know: don't do drugs? don't have a criminal background? don't steal cigarettes from the store? don't struggle with the cops like a crazy person? That man is dead because of his own stupid decisions, not the cops' who are trying to protect those around him. While it is a tragedy and a loss of human life, I wouldn't want George Floyd on the same street as me. He was a dangerous individual who might have gotten other people hurt (remember he threatened a pregnant lady while her other infant child was watching???). The sympathy for this trash of a human is goddamn paradox.

@Trout Austin Music Did Floyd have meth AND fentanyl in his system at the same time?

So having an uncontrollable drug addict who over dosed on drugs is considered homicide by cop ??

Nope, BUT kneeling on someone's neck for 10 minutes may have something to do with it Bubba.
