Once again an unarmed black man is murdered by police in front of a crowd begging them to stop…
Just like in the case of Eric Garner, George Floyd’s last words were “Please, please… I can’t breathe… You’re gonna kill me out here!” And remember, The officer who placed Garner in the choke hold was fired but not charged.
In Floyd’s case, they used the classic “you fit a description” lie to apprehend Floyd. Floyd was in a car and the pigs ordered him to get out. They force him to the ground and two officers restrain him.
After several minutes of Floyd pleading, one of the officers tells him to “relax.” Minutes later Floyd becomes motionless under the officer’s restraint but The officer leaves his knee on the man’s neck for several minutes more.
“He’s not even resisting arrest right now, bro,” one bystander tells the white officer and his partner, “You’re f—ing stopping his breathing right now, you think that’s cool?”
People in the gathering crowd plead for the officers to check Floyd’s pulse. They do not. One officer leaves his knee on Floyds neck until the ambulance arrives.
One murdering pig has been identified as Derek Chauvin. The identities of the other officers involved have not been released.
Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said that the union intends to provide full support to the officers:
“On Monday evening, shortly after 8:00 pm, officers from the Minneapolis Police Department responded to the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue South on a report of a forgery in progress.
Officers were advised that the suspect was sitting on top of a blue car and appeared to be under the influence.
Two officers arrived and located the suspect, a male believed to be in his 40s, in his car. He was ordered to step from his car. After he got out, he physically resisted officers.
Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress.
Officers called for an ambulance. He was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center by ambulance where he died a short time later.
At no time were weapons of any type used by anyone involved in this incident.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has been called in to investigate this incident at the request of the Minneapolis Police Department. No officers were injured in the incident.
Body worn cameras were on and activated during this incident.”
What they didn’t mention was the fact the the pig had his knee on the neck of the victim for several minutes, choking him to death. Darnella Frazier posted a video of the incident on her facebook page.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey had this to say, “He should not have died… Being black in America should not be a death sentence.”
“For five minutes we watched as a white officer pressed his knee to the neck of a black man. For five minutes,” he said. “When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic human sense. What happened on Chicago and 38th this last night was simply awful.”
FBI have been called in to investigate the murder of Floyd, however Mayor Frey says, “Whatever the investigation reveals, it does not change the simple truth… that George Floyd should be with us this morning.”
Experts on police use of force told The Associated Press that the officer clearly restrained the man too long.
They noted the man was under control and not resisting. Andrew Scott, a former Boca Raton, Florida, police chief who now testifies as an expert witness in use-of-force cases, called Floyd’s death “a combination of not being trained properly or disregarding their training.”
I call it MURDER!
“He couldn’t move. He was telling them he couldn’t breathe, and they ignored him,” Scott said. “I can’t even describe it. It was difficult to watch.”
The pig in the Garner case claimed he was using a legal maneuver called “the seatbelt” to bring down Garner, whom police claimed had been resisting arrest.
But the medical examiner referred to it as a chokehold in the autopsy report and said it contributed to his death. Chokehold maneuvers are banned under New York police policy.
Like in the case of Garner, these pigs will probably not be charged with murder either.
This murder comes amid outrage over the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, who was shot Feb. 23 in Georgia after a white father and son pursued the 25-year-old black man they had spotted jogging in their subdivision.
More than two months passed before charges were brought. Floyd’s lawyer Crump also represents Arbery’s father.
“You can’t watch this appalling video posted by brave eyewitnesses on social media without seeing police officers’ callous disregard for a black man’s life,” ACLU of Minnesota Executive Director John Gordon said.
