What if the new evidence about George Floyd
Is that he didn’t actually die from the police applying pressure on his neck and he swallowed drugs or something of the sort.

Edit( not defending the cops at all 100% abuse of power it’s just interesting what the Prosecutors said.)

Shouldn’t officers render aid in such a situation? Why not at least check the guys pilse after he laid lifeless for a few minutes under your knee?

This is why the process needs to play out. Of course if anything else is developed it will be refuted .

Of course the goalpost will move from:
- "they shouldn't have killed him" to
- "they should have prevented him from killing himself".

I would never expect you to say anything regarding personal accountability, along the lines of: "what a dumbass, swallowing a bag of dope. What did he expect"

That may be true, however, the police don’t need to enforce those kind of tactics on suspects who are totally subdued.

That is a civil issue, and not a crime - at least in GA.

What about the accountability of the cop who had a man die while his knee was planted in his neck and didn’t even check on him?

We don't know that the knee had anything to do with his death. Maybe it did, maybe it didn't.

What about the lawbreaker that put himself in that position. Does he shoulder any responsibility? If not for his criminality, none of this would have happened.

But we do know he let a man die under his knee and didn’t seem to give a shite.

You have no video of him committing any crime, you have no written reports or have seen zero evidence..yet he’s all but convicted in your mind. Yet the guy who you know, at a minimum, sat with his knee on a mans neck while he died...we need to wait to see if he’s accountable?

Changes nothing. They had no reason to do what they did, he was taking out his aggression in this guy like a frickin pussy and killed him in the process.

The ME hasn’t said that yet and that’s what matters.

If that is the narrative, then I’m sure these twats didn’t plant it on him or shove it down his recently deceased throat. No way.

Is that what you’re hoping for?

Why can’t you accept the fact the cop abused his power and needlessly killed Floyd? You actually saw it happen.

We also don’t know if he was black. Maybe he was. Maybe he wasn’t.

Correct. I don't what what he personally identified as. Maybe he was actually a "she".

The crime would be the excessive force, even if it was just a battery charge of some sort. And even if the victim swallowed 100 crack rocks, it's clear from the video that the cop used excessive force when the guy was out of it and he continued to kneel on his neck for an additional 3+ minutes regardless of what caused his death.

Why didn't they hogtie him if he was under the influence (as the 911 caller indicated)?
