Default George Floyd death.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/george-fl...ity-mayor-calm

This becoming a big deal, even the President has gotten involved calling for an investigation. The cop was wrong but so are the rioters by involving innocent people. And destroying private property. It's just about
all the fox news channel was talking about last night. One little comment about Space X.

I watched some of the video. He was handcuffed behind his back early in the arrest and seated. If 4 + cops can't handle a man in handcuffs BEHIND HIS BACK, maybe they should try another line of work. Full disclosure I HAVE NEVER BEEN A COP - but 4 against one handcuffed man... Please explain that to me. You have to kneel on his neck? Can't keep him down with a couple of cops kneeling on his back??? Maybe this guy was Superman - but I doubt it.

Unless there something we ain't seeing, that cop needs to go to jail. There is no excuse for putting your knee on a man's neck. That is how you break a neck. If he needed to hold him down, a knee in the back would have been just as effective.

I see Mr. Floyd had a white girl friend. And I saw a video of him talking responsibly to young blacks to avoid violence and shooting each other. I gather he was some kind of community figure.

Still didn't get why he was being arrested and asphyxiated.

Hopefully the autopsy report, not yet completed, will shed some light on the actual cause of death.

As bad as the cop's actions are, if they did not actually cause the death, it's not murder. Causation is an essential element of homicide.

On another note, the only time black lives matter is when whites or cops are implicated and the incident can be used to incite racially motivated hatred of white people and looting. Blacks kill each other every day and there's no protest because there's no profit in dealing with the fact that most blacks have no respect for any norm of civilized behavior.

Where I live in Southern California, Black Lives Matters went out and blocked a freeway. What does this have to do with anything that happened in Minneapolis? Nothing. It's an excuse for black savages to make life **** for people and get away with it. Only when blacks can show their contempt for civilization to they get up off the couch and do something worthwhile.

More and more I'm beginning to understand the role of lynching in the old south. It worked.

The cop blocked the corotid artery. You can't live more than eight minutes. Brain shuts down.
