George Floyd – Black Man Treated Like a Dog by White Policeman in the USA

The FBI is investigating the death of George Floyd, black man who was pinned on the neck by a police officer and later died in custody. Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison joins The Beat with Ari Melber’s breaking coverage on the latest from the FBI and the protests. While the officers involved have yet to be charged, Ellison argues a “quick arrest” might “make people feel better about justice” it is “important” for investigators to “take the time to make sure that these charges, if they are brought forward, stick.

    There is an epigram ( I am giving myself some latitude using the word) that, students of food are introduced to when starting out in the field. It is about a fly which has some how managed to gain entrance to to the processing area ( maybe some one did not closed the door correctly). The fly keeps buzzing around one’s head despite several attempts to swat it. Such a fly is said to have a nuisance value. You fit the description of a fly which has a nuisance value ( in addition to being a pompous ass who thought he was the brightest spark on the block ,only to discover else wise).

  • ‘How did someone end up dying?’: Family of black Toronto woman allege officers ‘threw’ her off balcony

    The family of 29-year-old, Regis Korchinski-Paquet sounded the alarm after Toronto Police Service classified the death of their loved one as a suicide. Korchiniski-Paquet died after falling from the 24th floor of her apartment in High Park on Wednesday, but the family insists the young woman was killed and did not commit suicide.

    “The police killed my daughter, came in my apartment and shoved her off the building,” alleged Claudette Korchinski-Beals, mother of the victim in a video making the rounds on social media.

  • According to Pachamama:

    Every time an Afrikan American is ruthlessly murdered by a racist national police force of the USA we can rely on dutiful cunts like ROBERT LUCAS et al to talk about a so-called Black-on-Black crime phenomenon as if Black people are genetically predisposed to killing other Blacks.

    Our histories are replete with ass-licking, boot-licking, Uncle Toms like Robert Lucas

    He continues his canard… despite our offering that about 90 percent of Whites murdered happen as White-on-White crime. And that the statistic is not statistically different for Afrikan-American. Yet he continues with his blood libel against Black people.

    LUCAS is incapable of seeing a world with White-on-White crime.

    Lucas is capable of making claims against Muslims, Hindus and everybody else who is non-White but NEVER against White people

    We are therefore forced to conclude that ROBERT LUCAS and his fellow travelers are modern day negroes whose very existence depends on hatred of self and an uncompromising obeisance to White anti-human thinking. He therefore is well worthy of death from their continuing thought crimes against Black people.

    According to a report from The Guardian, however, Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar had a chance to prosecute Derek Chauvin, the police officer at the center of this gruesome incident – but declined to do so.

    Klobuchar who was a state prosecutor at the time, ignored previous conduct complaints against the officer. “Between 1999 and 2007, Klobuchar, the state’s then top prosecutor, declined to press charges against more than a dozen officers accused of killing civilians,” The Guardian reported.

    To make matters worse a local news outlet reported that Chauvin “had 18 prior complaints filed against him with the Minneapolis Police Department’s Internal Affairs.”

    The Washington Post highlighted another racially charged case that Klobuchar declined to bring charges in that involved the death of 44-year-old Christopher Burns, an unarmed black man, who died after he was put in a choke hold by law enforcement officers who were responding to a domestic violence call.

    “The focus of the community’s anger was Amy Klobuchar, the up-and-coming attorney of Hennepin County, who had declined to prosecute police accused of using excessive force against black suspects,” The Washington Post reported. “At the same time, she aggressively prosecuted smaller offenses such as vandalism and routinely sought longer-than-recommended sentences, including for minors.”

  • Agreed, David, that “justice must be served”.

    I expect that the third degree murder charge and the manslaughter charge is a crumb, a sop if you will, to appease those who are seriously concerned and who riot as a direct result of their frustration at the delays in prosecuting Chauvin and the other rogue police for Floyd’s Murder.

    The charges against Chauvin so far, are, in my opinion, intended to derail the protests and prevent more rioting. … buying time. If convicted, the maximum sentences – 25 years and 10 years – might also be made to run concurrently by some Judge.

    However, we should have confidence in Fmr Congressman, and current Minnesota A.G, Keith Ellison, an intelligent and progressive individual.

    Finally, we should never trivialize the murder of innocents. Thus, George Floyd was and is presumed innocent, both at the time of his murder, and thereafter.

    We must therefore forego and ignore the ludicrous and insensitive chatter by some who really ought to know better in such tragic matters of life and death and murdered innocence.

    Know that I do not countenance or condone murder in any way, shape or fashion.

    However, as concerns Fmr. P.O Chauvin, perhaps some kindly fellow inmate will probe him with an ice pick in the left side of his chest (no vital organs there) some future day. Or, not unlike the inmate who iced Jeffrey Dahmer, and others. But, then again, Chauvin might be insulated, like many a crooked cop, by his fellow confederates, from the fate he so richly deserves.

    @David BU from what i understand it was confusion where he should actually be while reporting and the arresting officer was “following orders” . He was reporting from where the police were positioned.
    Also a prelim autopsy report said that Floyd did not die directly from Chavins’ “knee” . If this is true the officer MAY not be CONVICTED for murder but manslaughter. This is why investigations take time, it is the same reason why the other 3 officers are not charged and arrested at this point. Apparently Floyd and Chauvin also worked at the same place before so they possibly knew each other; another spin in this case

    I WAS TOLD FROM THE TEST GIVEN THAT HE FELT I WAS UNDER THE INFLUENCE BUT WOULD GIVE ME A BREAK AND NOT TO LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN.

    WITH THAT I WAS HANDED BACK MY DRIVERS LICENSE, INSURANCE DOCUMENT AND GIVEN DIRECTIONS TO THE SHORTEST ROUTE TO MY APARTMENT.

    THIS WHITE POLICEMAN DID HIS JOB IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER, HE WAS ALONE AND APPROACHED MY CAR WITH HIS GUN DRAWN INITIALLY WHILST ASKING FOR MY DRIVERS LICENSE AND INSURANCE.

    IT WAS CLEAR HE WAS DOING HIS JOB WHEN HE APPROACHED THE CAR.

    MANY POLICEMEN IN THE US HAVE BEEN GUNNED DOWN OR RAN OVER WHEN STOPPING CARS DRIVEN BY WHITE, BLACK OR HISPANICS THIS HAS HAPPENED IN THE DAYTIME FURTHER MORE AT LATE NIGHT HOURS.

  • GP I have not seen the autopsy report but very often autopsies are performed by the county coroner. County coroner’s do not have to be board certified pathologist. A second autopsy was ordered I suspect because the coroner is not a pathologist and a more thorough one is needed. Only a pathologist can do such

  • So baje you ass

    That was in the 90 on a very well lit highway. It was so bright I did not even know my light had gone out until they told me

    Now you want silly me to believe that this was SOP for cops for when they pull over anyone at night?

    Then why didn’t the other cops who pulled me over at night didn’t have the same approach? A few of them were alone

    Actually I think it was the car that used to attract them to me
    After I changed to a newer model I got pulled over once for speeding

    Now tell me why wood you pull a gun to tell me my headlight was out?

    If I had made a sudden move for my wallet ??
    Another dead black man at the side of the road fir whatever bogus reason those two had come up with?

    “A lawyer representing the family of Ahmaud Arbery has said that the US Department of Justice is investigating his killing as a possible hate crime.

    Lee Merritt said federal authorities are not only pursuing the hate crime line, but are also investigating two local county officials, George Barnhill and Jackie Johnson, who recused themselves from the case shortly after the killing in February, according to several news reports quoting him.”

  • Teen Behind George Floyd Video Says She’s Traumatized by Online Abuse

    Darnella Frazier, 17, was the person behind the camera that recorded the heinous killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN. The now-viral video lit the match of civil unrest in Minneapolis and sparked solidarity protests across the country. However, the teen says she is traumatized by the online abuse.

    “I don’t expect anyone who wasn’t placed in my position to understand why and how I feel the way that I do,” Frazier shared on Facebook. “I am a minor! 17 years old, of course I’m not about to fight off a cop I’m SCARED wtf. I don’t give 2 f**** about what y’all would’ve did because was y’all there?? NO. Fighting would’ve got someone else killed or in the same position George (may he rest in peace) was in. If it wasn’t for me 4 cops would’ve still had their jobs, causing other problems.”

    In a clip with the news outlet Now This, Frazier said, “I watched this man die. I was the one that was recording the whole thing. I’ve seen him die. […] I posted the video last night, and it just went viral. And everybody’s asking me how do I feel? I don’t know how to feel. … It’s so sad, bro. This man was literally right here, 8 p.m. yesterday.”

    Rush Limgaugh had a ball.

    He raised millions from Americans pissed off with Kapernick and NIKE.

    Produced “Stand up for Betsy Ross” tee shirts and donated millions to charity from the effort.

    Americans are pissed off with Kapernick.

    Kapernick showed himself to be fundamentally dishonest and got himself nailed for his efforts..

    I am tired of the protests and call for justice by the black community in the USA. They should armed themselves and start an urban warefare in that coutry. They have enough guns in the system. Any other group of people wouldn’t tolerate that crap. Justice like they don’t tolerate that in the hood. The US military is poor at fighting urban warfare. With the history of maltreatment of blacks in that country, makes you wonder the lack of a black militant organization like what emerged in Palestine.
