#1 But he recycled and never used the n word (except when talking to his homies) His social credit rating was above 900!

#3 Oh, so only just now we are learning of this "angel's" past. No excuse on how he died, of course.

#4 From what I can ascertain, clearly a Public Service Homicide (PSH).

#5 I suspect the guy who wrote the Hamilton broadway mess is feverishly working on a musical about Floyd.

#6 Does George Floyd’s sainthood committee know about this?

#8 Floyd's history is not relevant, counterfeiting is not a death penalty crime and we are not mega-city one where cops get to kill people for petty crimes. He deserved a court of law.

Trump should be looking into banning police unions as they work to keep bad actors on the force.

Trump should also develop a program that promotes minorities becoming cops in minority communities. Not sure how to work that but they should look into it. Clearly having minority police chiefs and mayors has not helped as they are socialist idiots, but if you had enough black cops they would be seen differently by those communities even if policing was the same.

#9 /\ Fotos/video show he was in the police car, then moments later he was on the pavement. I can't believe the police put him in the backseat of a squad, attempted to buckle him in (standard procedure), then decided to remove him in order to put him on the pavement and asphyxiate him.

Something missing here.

#11 ...Michael M. Baden (born July 27, 1934[1]) is an American physician and board-certified forensic pathologist known for his work investigating high-profile deaths and as the host of HBO's Autopsy.[2]

Baden was the chief medical examiner of the City of New York from 1978 to 1979, but was removed from his position by New York City Mayor Ed Koch, after Koch had received complaints about his work.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11] Baden then took the same position a few miles away in Suffolk County, but was dismissed for allegedly making inappropriate comments about how to commit the perfect murder.[5][12][13][6] The decision to let him go was rescinded shortly thereafter, as the circumstances of his alleged comments were unclear, but Baden chose to leave the position nonetheless.[13]

He has been hired to conduct private autopsies in a number of cases, including the shooting of Michael Brown

#12 #9 He said he was claustrophobic. That's why they went up on the roof to smoke meth.

#13 Since Chauvin reportedly came around the back of the vehicle and deposited Floyd along the rear wheel well, I presume he was being a problem while being belted it , and since the days of a hickory shampoo to quell bad behavior are long gone, was using the knee/ neck alternative to the famous LAPD choke hold to lower the perps consciousness level. Clearly it went south from there.

#14 Floyd would have probably had the heart attack if he was tasered, but why wasn't that the next step?

#17 This whole thing is basically nothing more than the usual criminals killing criminals.

#18 How would you like to be on that jury, knowing that if you acquit, today's riots look like a Sunday school picnic. It won't matter what the evidence shows, or what the prosecutor and defense attorneys say.

This will be a case of "Bring the guilty bastard in. We'll give him a fair trial before we hang him."

#19 I know i'm simply terrible for saying this, but apart from the series of events catalyzed by his demise, I'm not sorry he's dead.

In light of what's happened, we'd be better if he hadn't been killed, but I won't pretend to miss him.

#20 Prediction:
Now that Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison has taken over the case, he will over-charge the perps. This will get the Dem base fired up twice - first time when Ellison piles on various layers of murder and mopery, the second when a jury acquits the cops on the excessive charges.
