Full Body Cam Video from Two of the

Charges Filed By Minnesota AG Keith

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 8/5/2020 10:30:40 AM

Late on Monday, The Daily Mail posted full body cam videos from two of the officers charged in connection with the death of George Floyd. These videos have been kept out of the public domain by Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, and now we know why. The videos are from the body cams worn by Officer Thomas Lane and Officer Alex Kueng. The two videos (Snip) cover a sequence of events lasting just over 18 minutes. Full versions are linked to below, and after the links I have comments with time-stamps referenced. Lane Body Cam – Video No. 1. (Snip) It takes about 30 seconds for Floyd to

A lot of Republicans lying about it too. It was just another racial hoax from the beginning, stirred up by the Democrats and their media to get more cities burned to the ground. The Republicans rolled over immediately, never standing for anything. Try being a police officer anywhere today, and dealing with these people. None of the critics would survive more than a few seconds on the job.

No sane jury would ever convict officer Chauvin of second-degree murder based on the evidence that we have seen so far so I await rioting and looting round 2.

A prosecutor with any integrity would have never charged them, or at least would have dropped the charges based on this video evidence. But these are democrats with a malign agenda.

Leave it to a bunch of leftist prosecutors to screw up an open-and-shut case. Manslaughter was probably a winnable case, anything more is mob rule. All that being said, excess force was used in this case.

The only thing the timeline did not show was when the officers called for an ambulance. Reading the Daily Mail yesterday, and they would have you believe that the most significant find was the officers were too busy picking gravel out of the tires on their police car rather than watching George Floyd.

Gut reaction as to the headline - this is exactly what that Muslim slime ball Ellison wants after he over-charged Chauvin. He knows that the video will be shown in the trial and, like Darren Wilson and the 6 Baltimore cops, Chauvin will be acquitted. Which will result in more riots, hopefully right before the election. Now I’ll go read the article.

Floyd died from drug overdose, and nothing that the officers did had the slightest effect on his trajectory, caused by his own actions , taking large amounts of illegal drugs.

Claustrophobia is consistent with hyperventilating and a feeling of not being able to breathe (The author needs to look up the difference in spelling between 'breath' and 'breathe', but it is a common problem). None of that is the fault of the officers. Having twice the deadly dose of fentanyl in your system can do a number on your perception.

Had this on Tucker last night. Ellison didn't want the entire video released because it would undercut the Marxist narrative that the U.S. is a racist country. Seems Floyd had enough drugs in his system to kill almost anyone, and he was complaining of not being able to breath long before the police put him on the ground for resisting arrest. The police tried to put him in the police car, but he fought with the cops trying to do that, so they wrestled him to the ground. Naturally the by stander taking the now famous video with the cop's knee on Floyd's neck doesn't show the first thirty minutes of the police stop. The part Ellison didn't want anyone to see.

My understanding is that an ambulance WAS called and that the officers discussed "excited delirium" which can make the victim act dangerously and can lead to death. Further, fentanyl use can cause respiratory difficulty. As pointed out, there was NO indication that the officer was using much force with his knee and it was NOT on Floyd's windpipe. Yes, it was an ugly situation, CAUSED by Floyd and his drug use. The situation was probably made worse by the tension of being arrested but the officers were very restrained in their actions. The problem again that Floyd's drug use made his stress worse. The only question is whether the officers should have taken further medical action, maybe CPR, when Floyd became unresponsive? Would it have made a difference? Maybe not. It is not uncommon for drug users to die in the process of being arrested due to the impact of drugs.

Floyd's excuse for not getting in the police car was he was claustrophobic - yet he clearly wasn't claustrophobic driving his own car. Floyd's own behavior contributed to working himself into a panic attack, which can cause tightening of the chest and therefore, inhibit breathing - if indeed he was really having trouble breathing.

I totally agree with #16; if ALL black lives mattered I would have a bit of tolerance for them. An organization that is concerned with black lives would have a visible presence in major cities working to reduce black on black violence; it would work with pro life groups to reduce or end abortions. That they do nothing at all to benefit their community puts the lie to their organization's name. They choose to celebrate thugs who are unable or unwilling to make good choices. Drug addled criminals who are too out of it to follow simple directions should not be lionized. I am sorry this man died but it was his behavior that was most at fault in his death.

This whole story is a disgrace where hysterical reporting without waiting for investigation and verification was allowed to foment into the uncivil attacks on our institutions and innocent people. Suppression of news as Ellison has done is reprehensible and makes a fool of the law, The day after Floyd died people in the know had the measure of his death being drug related. Floyd had admitted early in the proceedings to hooping , a term meaning drugs stuffed into the rectum, as well as ingesting fentanyl. It is my belief that Soros had everything set up beforehand to activate rioters when a situation that could be exploited arose. This Floyd business was the exact right trigger to set off the misnamed BLM , which then attracted all the paid thugs to zoom in and create mayhem and violence. Who are the victims? The business owners who lost their livelihoods, the residents who no longer have safe places to live, children who have been scared out of their minds, and no police left to help the citizens.

Anybody who gets called for this jury will know that there is only one acceptable verdict going in. If they dare vote to acquit, their identity will be leaked, they will be "doxxed," and their life, their family, and their homes will be in jeopardy. No matter the evidence, a finding of not guilty will result in new riots that will make the original riots look like Sunday School.

There’s a reason President Trump calls him “Sleepy Joe.” Joe Biden would be the oldest person ever elected president, and, yeah, he sometimes does seem to be slowing down. And for sure he’s no Bernie Sanders — he has no fiery radical program to change the world. If elected, Biden won’t be known for his inspirational oratory, his close attention to policy details, his bold vision or his dramatic reshaping of society. He’s been in public office for nearly 50 years and is used to playing the game according to its long-established rules. He’s more swamp creature than revolutionist.

WASHINGTON — When Bill Clinton gave his convention acceptance speech in 1992, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a toddler. Clinton, whose presidency steered the party to the center a generation ago, returned to the convention podium Tuesday night as a gray-haired party elder; Ocasio-Cortez, a rising insurgent pushing the party to the left, got a snippet of speaking time. The two personify a yawning gap within the Democratic Party between baby boomers who have dominated party leadership for decades and a rising generation of more progressive, diverse younger people.

The Curious Problem of Obesity

In a recent OpEd from The Guardian, author Larry Elliot opines on the frequency of obesity among low-income households in the U.K., and points out that the problem “in the U.S. mirrors that of the U.K.” Elliot goes on to proclaim, that, “there will be less obesity when people can afford to eat better.” The premise is that poor folks are victims of one injustice or another; in Elliot’s case, he claims they are unable to afford healthy food. This notion has been floating around for several years now, particularly as it relates to children, and is one that is frequently parroted by the left in America.

Ever since the police killing of George Floyd, Democrats have attempted to blame the Republicans and President Donald Trump of somehow abetting police brutality in general or Derek Chauvin, the police officer who put his knee on the neck of George Floyd, in particular. On Monday, former Vice President Al Gore took it one step further. He accused Trump of doing to “democracy” what Chauvin did to George Floyd. This seemed more than a little ironic, given Gore’s own history with military ballots from overseas. Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Gore said, “Americans understand, Anderson, that during a pandemic, there are lots of older voters
