Millions of Americans murdered George Floyd–the exact number of which I cannot be sure, but they will be the first to deny complicity, of that I am sure.

It was pretty easy to see that Chauvin was kneeling on the carotid artery of this restrained man and probably knew just what he was doing.

The prosecutor is already suggesting there evidence that what the Cop did does not necessarily mean a criminal act occurred. In his report he loads the report with ambiguities that are going to be used to suggest there “reasonable doubt” as to the police officers guilt.

Now before anyone gets the wrong impression I am NOT supporting the Police officers case. I saw the video and what he did was a crime. I am suggesting that the prosecutor is actively trying to introduce enough ambiguity so as to result in no conviction.

Note that this website is a pro police website. Notice how they mention the right of the officer to having a fair trial and being presumed innocent along with the suggestion that the charges against him rushed. No mention is made of Mr Floyds rights not to be killed without a trial or without being charged with any crime. He was a suspect and had a right to be treated fairly by the police officers.

note the comments section as well with the vast majority supporting the Police officer and in fact suggesting that Floyd responsible for the riots. They all mention the rights of the Police officers to a fair and speedy trial with none even acknowledging that a man was killed in their custody due to the fact the back of his neck was kneeled on for over 8 minutes. If the Cop held a suspects head under water for 10 minutes until he drowned would they also claim the Cop did nothing wrong as he was trying to “restrain a suspect”?

All four of these officers need to be in jail, now; and, at least Chauvin needs to be charged with first degree murder. The medical examiner needs to be held accountable, too.

Defund the police.
Remove their guns.
Arrest immediately any who murder civilians including the 4 involved in George Floyd’s public lynching.

In another video, two police had a protestor lying face down on the street, while one was handcuffing the person, the other officer had his knee on the neck of the person. The officer with the handcuffs slapped the other officers leg and told him to get off, and he did. You would think this changes things but it is going to take a lot more before this is fully accountable.

Why was Chauvin charged with third degree murder? I have no proof, but since Chauvin and George Floyd worked in the same nightclub, this could have been very well PREMEDITATED , FIRST DEGREE MURDER!

Why does the official report not show the same causes? Is the police coroner incompetent or just corrupt?

The middle officer kneeling on Georges chest is a murderer also.

The Medical Examiner’s statement was (info in brackets my addition):

“The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions [which purportedly included coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease] and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.”

So we’re not suppposed to believe our own eyes, which saw an actual murder taking place under the knee of a police officer. Ok, sure.

In my opinion, the Medical Examiner should also be charged with a crime, for lying on his report, and illegally trying to undermine justice.

Despite what elected officials and chiefs of police say, they are taught to do EXACTLY this tactic. And any ex cop that says they aren’t is lying.
They are taught to gat suspects on the ground immediately, by any means possible, and then they are taught to bring their full weight to bare on either their lower back or neck. This accomplishes two things. First, the suspect is “under control” and second, when the suspect begins to react to not being able to breathe they panic an automatically try to get up. That’s when the cop usually applies debilitating or lethal force.
Also keep in mind that since 9/11 most of the police hired in the US are veterans, many who saw combat. They were trained to apply lethal force in all instances. If you fire your weapon, you empty the clip, or as those other corrupt brutes said the other night as they fired on innocents on a porch, “light em up!”
That’s what we are dealing with.

Remember Rodney King. The DA managed to convince a jury that what they were seeing on the tape wasn’t 5 brutal cops beating the shit out of an unarmed black man. What they were seeing was a large hulking negro that could rise up and kill each of those poor defenseless cops with his bare hands.
And all of them walked.

Of course it will never happen. The N.R.A.s bumper sticker that says: " WHEN GUNS ARE OUTLAWED ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS". Is true if you realize the true outlaws are the police!

I again find myself asking the 2nd amendment nuts that think their guns are going to control an oppressive government and their well armed brutal police…where are you? Don’t you see that the big bad guvmint is declaring Martial law? Where are you to defend you fellow citizens from over aggressive fascists?
Oh thats right, you’re where you always are when the shit gets tough, you are hiding in your basements, like your hero, the bunker-fuhrer.

Law Enforcement in America no longer exists.

It’s been replaced by Hate Enforcement incited by a government of elites intent on creating a permanent underclass, subservient to them.
