George Floyd moved to Minneapolis in 2014 for a fresh start after being released from prison in Houston, Texas following an arrest for aggravated robbery

The above is not being reported by anyone accept dailymail and while it gives us a fuller picture of the man, George Floyd, it has no bearing on the fact that he was murdered by 4 Minneapolis police officers. The clip below shows at least two officers with their knees on his neck, upper chest, and abdomen … and when he is crying out struggling to breathe they are telling him to relax as if he is resisting arrest. These people are not stupid. They knew exactly what they were doing. They used a technicality to murder this man. I see murder with malice …

Having watched the video - you can conclusively say the policeman used over the top violence against a man on the floor - however there is no way of knowing if this was racist or not - shouldn't people wait and find out first before jumping to conclusions?

Yes, we should wait, and as more details emerge I am going to back off my original remarks and wait for the trial …

George Floyd was high on fentanyl and most likely already going into respiratory arrest before the police got there.

The police either murdered the man in the most barbaric way knowing he was in a medical emergency, or they did not believe Mr. Floyd, who said as he was taken from his car that he was having trouble breathing, … they saw his complaining and fighting as resisting arrest.

Not sure what is worse … "not recognizing" the emergency or killing him "knowing" he was in an emergency …

It had to be one or the other …
