    Lets just not do a rush to judgement, as even this cop still has legal rights!

    Good. National guard seems to be having a good effect also.

    I don't think anyone is advocating vigilante justice. But the video evidence is overwhelming. He will be convicted.

    They were morons. I like red necks. Generally, good people. I wouldn't disparage an entire group of people over their actions.

    It doesn't for him. He's got a history with Floyd. No doubt that's part of the puzzle regarding how and why he acted.

    People are losing it over Mr. Floyd. While what happened to him is a terrible thing, describing him as the "Soul of the Nation" as I read today is a bit much. Can we please come back down to reality here? , Mr. Floyd was once a convict having spent time in a Texas prison, a man who was a drain on society at large, not an asset. He moved to Minneapolis for a new start, yet it seems he just cannot stay out of trouble. The cops did not just show up and start harassing Mr. Floyd, no sir, someone called 911 and reported that he had committed some sort of crime. So please, let's keep Mr. Floyd and his life in context and not make him out to be some sort of angel or his presence in Minneapolis the "second coming".

    Sadly he is the soul of a big part of the nation and they eventually win and make way for the Antichrist.

    you need to see the official police report:

    https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/6933246/Derek-Chauvin-Complaint.pdf

    the only question I have is why they didn't do a tox screen on George (as well as that cop)? Some Muslim that reported the crime said he thought Floyd was on something.

    It's also interesting to me that he had been complaining about not being able to breathe well before he was even cuffed it's beginning to make more sense why the cop was charged for a lesser offense.

    You keep talking that way about George, clueless liberals will say you are taking up for the cops due to racism but that guy was trouble with a capital T (as was that fake jogger). This link details his past but of course the Daily Wail claims he was "turning his life around":

    George Floyd left Texas prison to start new life in Minneapolis | Daily Mail Online

    and it gets worse . . . St. George was an amateur porn star, according to anon. No linky for obvious reasons.

    I could careless about Mr. Floyd's past sins. Even if what you say is true, he was a better man than the cop that tormented him in his last moments. Hard to believe you're more concerned about Mr. Floyd's past sexual sins.

    I never said any of that and I don't think you know which of the two were the better man unless somehow you knew both of them in real life.

    It's NOT a black and white, good v. evil issue in the figurative sense either - he was NO great Christian, sheesh.

    This has nothing to do with Floyd or the cop. Just as CV19 has nothing to do with a real viable threat. Satan who has had a two pronged attack against Israel has motivated the entire world to damage the progress made by Americans under Trump to bring in an anti Semite like Barak Obama again.

    While I do not agree with everything Israel is doing as a nation, I understand that the Abrahamic Covenant was unconditional as exhibited in the story of Abraham’s folly with his wife’s abductions. Even tho Abraham was in the wrong, because of the covenant, both pharaoh and amalek were cursed.

    Every country in the history of the world has either been blessed or cursed on the basis of their treatment of the Jew.

    There is coming a time when our nation will like Spain, England, France, all of the world’s leaders of the past 2k years, America will be against Israel at which time it will no longer be the leading power among the nations.

    well, it would really, really help if American Jews would stop voting left. Minnesota is full of democrats. that anti-semite Omar is from this very place.

    Country is in an apocalyptic nightmare me, a live dystopia. I'm not going to cry over some thug's death, but there are no heroes in this scenario and the past does matter. Enough about George:

    Cop who kneeled on George Floyd beat and shot another black man during domestic violence call 2008 | Daily Mail Online

    should have been kicked off the force back then. I'm sure George Floyd did many more crimes and never got caught, and I'm sure this Derek Caughvin committed police brutality multiple times as well. Government unions at its finest.
