Fair news coverage replaced by leftist agenized version
As the George Floyd murder case resumes there is a police body cam video few have seen which puts a decidedly different perspective on the circumstances that led to him being restrained with a knee on his neck by former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, after Floyd resisted officer’s commands to exit his vehicle.
An admitted drug user, Floyd, a career criminal, was high on cannabis, fentanyl and methamphetamine, (full list begins on page 5 of the autopsy report) — which exacerbated his coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. And unwilling to be returned to prison for yet another stint, he fought being placed in the back seat of a police car. Floyd had moved to Minneapolis after being released from a Texas prison for aggravated robbery after breaking into the home of a pregnant woman, and pointing a gun at her stomach as he searched for money and drugs.
We’ve all heard his cry of, “I can’t breathe,” but he also used the same phrase as he was upright and fighting officers attempting to place him in the backseat of the patrol car. The reason police were initially called is Floyd was attempting to pass a counterfeit $20 bill in a neighborhood store. At 6’4” and 224 lbs., Floyd was an imposing presence, larger in stature than any of the arresting officers. Chauvin is 5’9”.
Potentially tainting the jury is the fact that the Minneapolis City Council awarded Floyd’s family $27 million, which Floyd’s brother George Floyd’s brother, Rodney Floyd, preposterously called, “a necessary step for all of us to begin to get some closure.”
The trial judge strangely only selected two alternative jurors, which could lead to a mistrial if there are any infractions. One juror has already been accused of negotiating a book deal. A brazen Go Fund Me account initiated by Floyd’s family picked up nearly $1.5 million by June 2020. It no doubt has increased in the last year.
