    Floyd was screaming I can't breathe long before he was put on the pavement.

    I’m pretty sure it was determined that the men did not know each other despite working periodically at the same place.

    This entire incident cannot be boiled down into one segment or one cause. Floyd had a system failure. The guy was as unhealthy as a human can be. He was not long for this world. He claimed that he was dying as they put him into the back of the car. He acted much the same in 2019. He was already high on fentanyl and meth and then ingested an untold additional amount once the police contacted him. He has a bad heart condition and he had a propensity to freak out when confronted by law enforcement. Chauvin kneeling on him looked bad...but it didn’t solely kill the guy. Period.

    I'm pretty sure that prone restraint is standard procedure for someone who is freaking out like Floyd was.

    They had pictures of the very thing chauvin was doing in the Minneapolis police department issued manual.

    Those that keep calling for defunding the police, might just get their wish. The blue rush for the door is now in full effect. I can imagine that the quality of recruits is going to take a major hit. I can only imagine the problems that might create.
     
  9. The police quitting is part of the plan.

    the video says a lot. IMO the cop kinda looked like he was enjoying it.

    If you can say the words I cant breathe then you can breathe. He was in the cop car saying I cant breaths and no one was touching him. he was killed by swallowing drugs to hide them.

    Some experts and a jury says otherwise.

    Right! A jury has spoken.

    No doubt the cop aided in his death. He wasn't solely responsible, but he showed blatant disregard. If he wasn't so arrogant in his actions he may not be going behind bars. His pride got the best of him that day. One less bad cop to have around.

    George Floyd was a cluster. Some people deserve to be takin out of the gene pool. He was one of them. One less thug to have around.
