    That by far more white people are killed by police than black? Why would I care? Most deaths by police are justified.

    I've seen this victim mentally hold good, smart people back from success.

    Does being a convicted felon mean you're allowed to be killed like a dog in the street? I must have missed that statute.

    You can’t really. This thing was covered by cameras and witnesses from different angles in BROAD DAYLIGHT for everyone to see.

    If he was still alive Johnnie Cochran would probably take one look at this and say “these guys are f*****”!!

    The biggest problem the bad cops have is that he was not resisting. There was no initial reason for the aggressive tactics. No reason to continue the agression to the point of death.

    If one of us blatantly disregarded DOT safety then acted recklessly on top of that causing loss of life what would happen to us?

    i saw the video of ole floyd with knee on back of neck. what a disgrace. However, the way that blacks handle police racism floors me. Burn down their town and destroy it and burglarize stores. Only ads to the steriotype. Innocent store owners and citizens suffer. How does that help the cause.

    Most of those looting etc DONT give a crap about Floyd. It’s just a mob mentality opportunistic situation.

    again, that said, Floyd didn’t deserve what he got. The cops messed up and messed up bad this time. Thanks to these four idiots every police officer in America will be a target to be ambushed probably for at least the next year. Good and bad cops alike.

    Clearly you did not read my original post. I will post it again here with highlights. You can jump to conclusions and take things out of context if you wish. I believe the rioters are doing that right now.

    This one is complicated.
    The individual who died in police custody, George Floyd was a convicted felon who served 5 years for armed robbery and a home invasion in his home town of Houston TX. He moved to MN 4 years ago, no criminal history there. He was being detained for allegedly passing a counterfeit $20 bill, not exactly a violent crime.
    Lost his job as a night club bouncer when the Covid-19 shut everything down.
    The police officer largely responsible for his death, Derek Chauvin has a spotty 19 year record with the Minneapolis Police Dept.
    So can we list his cause of death as resulting from Covid-19?
