George Floyed was an unlikely martyr. Yes, that is what he has become. Many people on the Left are now literally comparing him to Jesus and there is a weird hologram traveling exhibit displaying his holy image.
Of course, the death of George was the spark that resulted in the current anti-White hysteria. Because of his death we now see BLACK LIVES MATTER propaganda everywhere. I happened to see a hockey game on TV at a restaurant yesterday, and above the White skaters was a sign blaring, “WE SKATE FOR BLACK LIVES.” Really? I suspect that these players probably skate for a huge paycheck, but what do I know?
And woe be unto the person that makes the mistake of claiming that people of other races lives also matter. The tolerant Left will go into a frenzy and demand your job, if not your life.
You would think based on the hysteria that blacks can’t walk peacefully down the streets without evil Whites attacking them at random. But if you look at the crime statistics, 95% of all interacial violent crime is blacks attacking Whites. And even without looking at the crime statistics, normal people that live around blacks understand that the threat of violence is much higher in a black area versus a White or Asian community. Take a drive in a black neighborhood and you will see houses with bars on the windows and stores with bullet proof glass and extra security guards.
And based on the reaction of George’s death, you would think he was randomly attacked by the police while he was peacefully walking home from Bible study.
In reality, George was a thug. He previously was sent to prison for breaking into a pregnant woman’s home, pointing a gun at her stomach, and then robbing her. Good people don’t do such things.
In his final criminal act, George was caught trying to pass counterfeit currency. The longer video cam footage of the arrest was recently released by the British newspaper, Daily Mail.
Below is a description of the video -
One of the videos, which reportedly came from the body camera of Minneapolis officer Thomas Lane, starts with the cops pulling Floyd over and ends with their efforts to push the increasingly panicked 46-year-old security guard into a squad car. The other – much longer, extending over 18 minutes and allegedly taken from the body camera of Officer Alexander Kueng – starts inside the store where Floyd allegedly tried to pass a counterfeit bill and ends with police discussing the arrival of the ambulance as they restrain Floyd on the ground.
While neither clip, originally obtained by the Daily Mail, includes scenes of graphic violence, they are nevertheless difficult to watch. Floyd repeatedly pleads for his life and begs for his mother, asking the cops if they plan to shoot him and insisting he’s claustrophobic and can’t sit in the police car. The officers attempt to mollify him, promising to roll down the windows, in between asking him if he’s taken any drugs and accusing him of behaving erratically. The clip from Kueng’s bodycam provides an alternate camera angle on police restraining Floyd on the ground – the infamous “I can’t breathe” sequence that shocked the world when it initially surfaced on social media over two months ago.
It’s clear from both clips, however, that Floyd was in distress long before he ended up face-down on the asphalt. Repeatedly insisting he’s “not that kind of guy,” the stricken security guard protests “I can’t breathe” and “I don’t wanna die weird” as the officers attempt to stuff his handcuffed body into the squad car. Floyd even volunteers to lie on the ground instead, though at this point in the arrest the cops struggle to push, pull, and otherwise wrestle him into the vehicle.
Lawyers for the four officers charged with Floyd’s murder have for weeks argued the bodycam footage should be made public, insisting it provides necessary context for the decision to restrain Floyd on the ground using the controversial knee hold. While transcripts of the Memorial Day arrest made public last month already revealed Floyd had asked to “lay on the ground,” hearing the words in his own voice in between sobs coming from a grown man is viscerally unsettling.According to that transcript, Floyd subsequently began beating his face against the squad car window, causing blood and foam to come from his mouth and renewing officers’ suspicions he was on drugs. Neither video shows this moment. An autopsy indicated Floyd died of cardiac arrest, adding heart disease, fentanyl intoxication and recent methamphetamine use may have contributed to his untimely death. One of the cops on Kueng’s bodycam footage says he “believes” Floyd was high, noting they “found a weed pipe” and “there might be something else…PCP or something.”
While parts of the video seem to vindicate at least some of the police’s behavior, other parts provide ammunition for police abolition advocates. Floyd’s ex-girlfriend, a passenger in the car, tells the police he is mentally unstable (“he’s got a thing going on&rdquo regarding police and has been shot before, suggesting his erratic behavior could be a panic attack triggered by cops sticking a gun in his face. Police abolitionists often argue cops are responsible for responding to mental health incidents they lack the training to handle and frequently do more harm than good.
I was pulled over for a traffic violation last year. I provided a copy of my license and registration. I did not jump out of my car and start to foam at the mouth bang my head against the police car window. If I did so, I have no doubt that the policeman would have thrown me down on the street and arrested me.
George was a drug addict who was hyped up on fentanyl and meth at the time of his arrest. He refused to get into the police car and the police restrained him on the ground.
Was the knee to the neck a proper way to restrain an erratic and violent drug addict? I do not know. But it was obvious that it was not some KKK policeman attempting to kill some random black. There is no evidence that race had anything to do with the incident. If George would have complied with instructions and not resisted arrest, he probably would still be alive. I say ‘probably’ because George was complaining of not being able to breath before his arrest. It is likely that George was dying of a fentanyl overdose at the time of his arrest.
But I suppose that the details and facts don’t really matter. A White man killed a black, and that must never be allowed to happen. I am not exaggerating when I say that BLM wants to make it illegal for a White to harm a black, even if it is in self defense. And if a black should kill a White, BLM opposes the black being arrested and punished.
This is the dystopian nightmare that BLM supports. And all the major institutions now support BLM.
My take on that scenario, is Floyd accidentally did way too much dope, felt really guilty and afraid he was gonna die from the large dosage, panicked, and drove a few blocks down the way to try to pass a fake 20 for a pack of smokes he couldnt afford to relax and calm his fear and guilt.
Not expecting he'd get caught, he gets apprehended for the fake 20, and the fear and guilt already consuming him escalated far worse than what he initially experienced.
He automatically knew he'd be looking at 10 years or so in prison for the DUI, being under the influence of illegal substances, and the fake money, as well as around $10,000 in fines. He then went into an extreme panic of fear and delusion. That coupled with the fear and guilt he was already experiencing, he spiraled down emotionally and lost all control.
My problem with this, is that any person looking at 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines for these somewhat minor offenses would become paralyzed with fear and hopelessness, and is that really justified? It does seem a bit overkill.
I have boomer friends in their 70's who admit drug DUI charges were very lax when they were Floyd's age, compared to how much harsher they are today.. I think the police system does need some reform.. There are conservative Trump supporting cops that agree with that much.
And lastly, it seems if cops carried ankle cuffs as well as hand cuffs, they could have easily cuffed his feet and hands and wouldnt have had to kneel on his neck at all.. Then if he died from the drug overdose or whatever, it would be completely obvious that the cops were not at fault. And that would be a more humane approach as opposed to kneeling on his neck for 8 minutes
If it hadn't been the George Floyd incident it would have been something else. The real problem with the current unrest is young Caucasians who have been rendered emotionally and spiritually damaged by the cascade of leftist propaganda that they've been subjected to since birth.
Blacks are, and always have been convenient useful idiots. But the biggest difference in this latest round of chaos is the participation of damaged Caucasian youth.
I often ask many normie White people do you think Blacks or BLM would stop at just their vague description of racial justice and then be totally fair? The media always makes it seem Blacks have this moral superiority and if they had power then things would be fair. No Normie has ever been able to look me in the eye and say what if Blacks enslaved Whites or Africans enslaved Europeans and after feeling such moral depravity for this act they would fight a civil war against each other just to free these Whites, and then have Black social justice warriors bend over backwards to allow any power they have to be taken away for guilt?? It was a game all along I guess. I would finally ask any White antifa member would you go on a field trip to South Africa and be in a country where Black rule was restored? I mean put your money where your mouth is Antifa you think racial injustice is any case in which Blacks are not ruling over White people, so why don't you live it for yourself?? You need to prove you are woke and we are all just dying for you to live what you preach.
