Who Killed George Floyd?

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 8/6/2020 4:39:38 AM

In the death of George Floyd, the State of Minnesota has charged former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin with second-degree murder and former officers Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng, and Tou Thao with aiding and abetting that murder. But, as will be shown in detail below, the physical, scientific, and electronically recorded evidence in the case overwhelmingly and conclusively proves that these defendants are not guilty of the charges and, in fact, played no material role in bringing about Floyd’s death. Instead, the evidence proves that, when he first encountered the police, George Floyd was well on his way to dying from a self-administered drug overdose.

George Floyd states he has had Covid-19. Why on earth is he out doing drugs? Yet, the police officers stayed in place and still did their job. Can't help thinking about the teachers who don't want to teach. I am reminded, once again, the bravery of the front-line people who persist even with the risks facing them.

Someone else made the most astute observation I'd heard of so far about the claim is that Derek Chauvin's knee on George Floyd's neck suffocated him. And we're supposed to believe this is murder because GF told DC "I can't breathe." BTW, DC had the knee on the back of his neck not in front on his throat. BUT, the transcripts state that GF was saying the phrase long before he was placed on the ground outside the police car. Why wasn't GF just left in the police car? Well, GF claimed he had claustrophobia and couldn't be in the back of the squad car. He "couldn't breathe" in there. So, that's why he was brought back out. But if GF had claustrophobia and felt he couldn't breathe in the back of a squad car, then what was he doing inside his OWN car trying to drive away from the store where he had just forged a check?!?! It was the drugs GF was on, his own poor health, and his physical inability to remain calm during (yet another) arrest that killed him.

Suicide by cop. Free Chauvin and the other accused cops...they actually displayed quite a bit of leniency to Floyd, in that he was high on drugs and outweighed each of them by a good 100 lbs.

This piece further demonstrates why you shouldn't charge a criminal offense before all facts are obtained. There's only one reason why you would: mob appeasement. The problem is, if the defendant is given a fair trial, it's very likely you won't get a conviction (Keith, are you listening?). Does anyone think that the mob will just say "Oh, o.k. I guess these officers weren't guilty after all; no problem"? Keith Ellison and his accomplices have set this entire nation up for George Floyd outrage destruction v.2, and they'll be responsible for probably hundreds of additional deaths and trillion$ in damage when this is all said-and-done. What a detestable excuse for a human being they all are.

As the hours tick by we are seeing what a complete game changer the newly leaked videos are. I don't believe any of this was "made up" as some try to claim, but it definitely is not as it appears. More and more evidence and articles outlining that evidence seem to pop up every minute now. Keith Ellison is the one that should be in jail on his way to prison.

Not only did Floyd take drugs, he also transported drugs INSIDE his body! Sometimes that technique causes leaks to the drug balloons inside the person. I once found a dead body in my apartment's trash bin after his one of his balloons burst, killing him. His body had also been gutted by his MS13 gang so it could harvest all the rest of the balloons. Yuck!

This may be more of a question than a comment since I haven't seen a good angle on the video to show just where Chauvins knee was on Floyds body, was the knee on the neck or at the very top of the shoulders. The side of the neck may have been approved procedure for the department, I don't know. What I do know is that is situations of restraining combative detainees, I have stood on their calves, knelt on thighs and yes, placed my knee (and a fair amount of my body weight) on the very upper part of their shoulders which with the correct camera angle would have appeared to be on their neck. The folks who spew "i know what I saw", often don't. Further, before rushing to judgement good people ought to damn well try to get the facts. My gut reaction to most allegations of police abuse is, maybe it happened, but maybe the cop was just doing their job to the best of their ability. If you have never tried to control and restrain a combative individual, it's not fun and it is usually pretty scary so try to get some facts, not what the media (even fox) says and shows. The rodney king videos were heavily edited and sped up to make the encounter look worse than it was.

Those L-Dotters who have been reading posts here have known for over a month that George Floyd killed himself by taking a massive overdose of multiple illegal drugs, and devolved into Excited Delirium while the police were trying to arrest him for passing counterfeit money. The police officers kept him from harming himself, which he was doing by bashing his head on hard objects, and called an ambulance to try to save his life. And everything that they did was very much to their training, and showed no malice, no racism towards this dying loser. The explosion when the charges are either dropped or the officers found innocent will be EPIC. This is similar to the fraudulent story told about George Zimmerman, and the fraudulent story told about the Baltimore police officers. In each case, massive lies were pushed for many months by the Fake News Enemedia - and then the justice system actually worked and Zimmerman and the Baltimore officers were found NOT GUILTY. If there is any justice at all left in Minneapolis (not a trivial concern), all these officers will be found innocent.

Hillary Clinton leveled a jocular broadside against New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd on Saturday, pointing out that the writer appeared to forget wholesale that Clinton chose a man to run as her vice president during the 2016 election. Writing on the 1984 vice presidential candidacy of Geraldine Ferraro ahead of Joe Biden's announcement of a female running mate, Dowd in a Saturday column wrote that it had been "36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket." That claim ignored the 2016 presidential election,

Only part of the dramatic racial differences in age-adjusted COVID-19 death rates can be explained by racial differences. The remainder reflects a substantially lower black survival rate because, we are told, of poverty and inadequate access to healthcare. Once taking into account Latino outcomes, however, these factors alone are unlikely to explain the lower black survival rate. Why are the outcomes for Latinos so much better than for black Americans? There is no comprehensive national measure of cases by race and ethnicity. The CDC has estimates for only 57 percent of national cases. Using these partial estimates, together with population data,

Coming soon to a screen near you is an intriguing and creative new film documentary on Donald Trump, and yours truly and The American Spectator is here offering the first glimpse, courtesy of the talented filmmaker, Robert Orlando. The film is calledCitizen Trump, inspired, yes, by Citizen Kane. Here’s the parallel that Orlando plays out: In 1941, the story of a powerful, larger-than-life, media-driven business tycoon would emerge on the silver screen in a groundbreaking film. The film was a morality tale of the mogul’s bid for high office. The story was Citizen Kane, and the real-life portrait captured in the film was that of William Randolph Hearst.

Florida’s hanging chads from the 2000 Bush vs Gore contest will look like a walk in the park compared to what it will take to declare a winner this year. COVID-19 has completely upended how votes are cast and counted. It is inevitable that in competitive states such as Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania delays will happen in getting to the final tally. This is why it is so critical that election officials, starting with Secretaries of State, make it convenient to vote and put in place proper safeguards from the start.

At first glance, Joe Biden's strategy of avoiding the spotlight is paying off. He maintains his consistent lead over Donald Trump in national polls. In June, in the aftermath of the Lafayette Park fiasco, his advantage in the RealClearPolitics average expanded to 10 points. The critical swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida are trending his way. His lead gives him the freedom to mollify the progressive wing of his party by shifting leftward on policy. (Snip)There is no question that President Trump is in trouble. But look again at the polls.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar’s trip to Taiwan is angering Beijing. Good. Azar will be the highest-ranking US official to visit the island since 1979 and the first US cabinet official to go in six years. China views Taiwan as a part of itself, has sought to isolate it and hopes to regain control there eventually, perhaps by force. By dispatching Azar, President Trump is delivering a clear message of resistance to China’s increasingly egregious behavior.

SALT LAKE CITY – Some Black Lives Matter protesters in Salt Lake City could face up to life in prison if they’re convicted of splashing red paint and smashing windows during a protest, a potential punishment that stands out among demonstrators arrested around the country and one that critics say doesn’t fit the alleged crime. The felony criminal mischief charges are more serious because they carry a gang enhancement. Prosecutors said Wednesday that’s justified because the protesters worked together to cause thousands of dollars in damage, but watchdogs called the use of the 1990s-era law troubling, especially in the context of criminal justice reform and minority communities.

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
