    Default George Floyd murdered by cops

    Saw this footage yesterday of this guy being pinned down face first with a knee in the back of his neck.
    He repeatedly says "I can't breathe" but the cops just carry on and eventually kill him.

    Shocking stuff.

    Fucking damn right. Fucking sickening.
    And then peeps wanna say there should be no riots.

    Martin Luther King: "The language of unheard voices is rioting."

    Yeah, the Let Them Eat Cake crowd could never relate to that.

    Oh wait, but if you ask them to wear a mask.....

    I don't think that officer acted appropriately, however, I've seen videos like this where extra context was added and stories changed dramatically due to that little extra context. I don't know of George Floyd, I don't know of previous run ins with the law, I don't know of how he was acting in this specific run in either.

    It's a bad result and a bad look for the police.



    But I'm sure rioting will be the cure which heals all wounds

    • It's all on video.
    • It's obvious that Floyd wasn't "resisting arrest."
    • Floyd CLEARLY says he couldn't breathe.
    • Floyd died as a result of this police brutality.
    • Again..... it's all there in full color video.



    So obviously this now entails a 12-month investigation before all the facts can be clarified and some sort of (insufficient) verdict handed down.

    Is it ALL on this video though? It starts with George Floyd on the ground under that officer's knee.

    Don't confuse my stance with supporting the officer sitting on that guy's neck though. These things aren't mutually exclusive.

    Don’t ever ever ever fall for the false narrative that police who kill unarmed Black victims because they “lack police training”. These people have PERFECT training on how to deescalate situations as long as the suspects are WHITE



    That fake mayor of Minneapolis with his fake concern STILL made sure the national guard were protecting the killer cop outside his home



    He’s no longer on the force so why are they still defending him ? Waste of taxpayers dollars. The thin blue line has just gotten a lot thicker and sicker. As I've always said white supremacists stay on code.

    People on the ground in Minnesota are saying there are a lot of white undercover cops doing a lot of the vandalizing and arson out there. But all of it gets blamed on Black people. They caught this guy red handed with a hammer in his hand

    Yeah it's totally normal to be walking around with an umbrella and gas mask on and he didn't answer when asked if he was a cop. This will be their excuse to mobilize armed guards. They did this in Detroit back in the day to get the National Guard deployed. It is an old trick that they use. Agent provocateurs to the max. It happens at a lot these kind of protests. The goal is to discredit the protesters as "looting thugs." Thereby no has to listen to their pleas for justice.

    Another thing

    The police are not scared of black people

    That's the go to excuse they use to kill us

    No. It starts before that.

    There is video of Floyd already handcuffed and being led around by a police officer. In no way shape or form is the guy even remotely close to "resisting arrest", the go-to excuse for all police murders nowadays.

    The one posted here just started with him on the ground already. I've checked into a bit more and seen more videos yeah, I'd say George Floyd was cooperating fully and under complete control of the 4 officers. I've got 0 clue as to how he got to be underneath the 3 officers and that's unacceptable for anyone to hold someone down with a knee to the carotid artery. What the fuck did he think was going to happen?

    Another thing which bothers me is that apparently EMS/Fire checked for a pulse but didn't do any lifesaving procedures which is just as terrifying as how those officers acted.




    All that being said all rioting will do is harm working people and then the cops get called in to enforce the law and then what happens all over again?
