For George Floyd, a complicated life and consequential death

HOUSTON (AP) — Years before a bystander’s video of George Floyd’s last moments turned his name into a global cry for justice, Floyd trained a camera on himself...

White people sure love bringing up a past/rap sheet to justify literal fucking murder in the streets over a non-violent issue. Weird how that works out. Almost like there's a lot of fucking racism going on in America.
What red blooded American hasn’t committed a lil aggravated robbery right?

A look at high-profile cases over killings by US police

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin faces decades in prison when he is sentenced Friday in George Floyd's death.


& it's even rarer that police are sent'd to 30ys. (hopefully for dc) It's also rare that the federal DOJ indicted all 4 officers on civil rights violations. If there is ever a case that allowed police depts to condone police brutality, it's this case & the protests that foll'd.

Will be appealed…the 28 million dollar payout (before trial even started 🤔) really puts into question a couple things a good lawyer will bring up
I bet you any money he will get prison privileges include access to private cash, television in cell, more family visits, the opportunity to wear one's own clothes and to work in better-paid jobs, and more time outside his cell..!!!

Terrorist Ron Desantis in Florida just passed a law legalizing murdering BLM and Democratic protesters with cars. Look it up. White men like me need to speak against these terrorists. Arrest DeSantis now. Prosecute this Minneapolis car-driving terrorist murderer now.
This is white supremacist/anti-Democrat terrorism. Arrest and jail this murderer. Federally designate as terrorists: Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, Proud Boys. Prosecute terrorist leader Donald Trump for leading the Jan. 6 terrorist attack, or this terrorism will continue.

Police: Car plows into protesters in Minnesota, killing 1

The Minneapolis Police Department says a woman was killed and two others were injured after being struck by a car during a protest in the city's Uptown neighborhood.

“In response to such protests, Republican politicians in several states, including Oklahoma, Florida and Iowa, have sought legal immunity for drivers who hit protesters.” Forget “cancel culture”—actual suppression of free speech is wanting dissenting voices to be killed.
Don't block intersections. Live. Exercise your right to protest.
