Yes,I think everyone knows it is possible that you could kneel on the back of someone's neck and not choke them. But in this case it was choking him.

Your dumbass post proved nothing that wasn't already known and you got fired for it.

I guess I had an unorthodox experience during my youth wrestling days.  None of my coaches turned out to be thin blue line-supporting, ignorant farkwads.  Some are more conservative than others, but to my knowledge, none of them are MAGAts either.

Kneeling on George Floyd's neck, especially when he is already in handcuffs, is not the same thing as in doofus' post. Let's cuff him and have a comparable weight adult male kneel on his actual neck and see what he says.

cutting off blood flow gives the feeling of being suffocated. Not everyone's blood vessels are in the same place.

Wow, what a dumbass.

I think the same could be said of all Nazis.  Big people lovers.  Big.

So much this. Too much this.
Close enough only counts in horseshoes and grenades.

He should have been fired for lack pf punctuation as well. Doofus.

Coach is a racist ass. Nevertheless, I want to point something out. I'm not so sure it was the knee to the neck that killed George Floyd. He was being pressed down on his belly with a knee in his back as well. That can cause a different kind of suffocation. Your abdomen get pressed up compressing against your lungs. You get stuck in an exhale posture and simple can't push your diaphragm down against the pressure to inflate your lungs.

The first video had a limited perspective, and of course the knee into the neck was horrible and brutal. But I'm wondering if it wasn't more of a combined effort that produced mechanical suffocation. Maybe that doesn't matter much but it does say something about prosecuting all the cops involved because they put in a team effort.

I imagine he'd be singing a different tune if it were his neck under a murderers knee.

Or actually, not singing, but patriotic choking noises.

Bingo.

It was a shiatty re-enactment.

I read his Facebook post. I don't care that he is an athletic coach and not an English teacher. Nobody should be teaching children in any capacity if they use the word "are" when they mean "our" and can't figure out punctuation and capitalization.
 
2020-05-30 10:31:33 AM  
And here I am thinking that high school athletic coaches are geniuses.

I'm going to have to seriously rethink my stance on them now.
 
2020-05-30 10:33:04 AM  
Yeah, it wasn't the knee to the neck that killed Floyd. It was lying on his chest with 400+ pounds of weight pressing down on him from the 2 cops.

Because, your chest needs to expand in order to, you know, breathe.

Let's see Mister 'Not A Racist' Pull the same thing with 2 grown men kneeling on his back.

2020-05-30 10:37:56 AM  
So, he's trying to say that George Floyd was going to die anyway? The knee on the neck didn't contribute? It is difficult to follow racist logic.

He still thinks that FB post is clever/smart/witty/informative and now he's gone into the persecution phase of his delusion.

He gives wrestlers a bad name. Like "Koko B. Ware" or "The Sodbuster" Kenny Jay.

A "real" proud American woulf have gone all the way and let the assistant break his f*cking neck. You know, to SUPPORT THE BLUE!

/Topic tag is right.

fark this piece of shiat. He'll be one of the first brownsharts that rushes out militia style to shoot black people, I mean help restore order in our nation. I'm surprised I haven't read about that happening yet. Rando white nationalist militias organizing to join the police and national guard. Has there ever been a better time for their race war? With this president he'll probably support them. He wanted to be a wartime president, I don't think he'd care if it's a race war.

I don't think people realize how many racists live in Washington state.

I thought they released the autopsy report that said Floyd didnt die from suffocation or asphyxiation, but from the numerous heart conditions he had. Which were most likely triggered by the stress and anxiety of the situation coupled with 400+ lbs of cop sitting on him. So the knee to the neck wasnt a "direct" cause of death but was definitely a contributing factor in it. I think this is the angle the cop's defense lawyer is going to use to get the charges reduced or get him acquitted.

/cop is a murderer and needs to be locked up. And his buddies too as accessories.
 
2020-05-30 11:03:57 AM  
We should support are police officers.
 
2020-05-30 11:07:52 AM  
Floyd may well not have died from choking to death.

The position he was in may have dislocated his larynx or compressed his carotid arteries against his vertebrae.

And the ones was on his neck, not his shoulder, "coach" big difference.
 
2020-05-30 11:10:40 AM  
And cops will kill more people today without a drop of all the legal "concerns" being afforded Floyd's murderer

My guess is something like:

*gasp* I can't breathe *gasp*

but for less than 10 minutes

I don't want to get all metaphysical here but I think that we all exist as a consciousness in the universe before we're born.  Just before we are sent to this Earth to live a corporeal life we fill out a survey and one of the questions is "What sort of occupation are you fit for?"  If you don't fill it out because you either can't understand the question or even read, it defaults to "wrestling coach".

I heard Minneapolis was short one officer.  Maybe he can get a job with them.

If do right, no can defense.

If not do right, can defense.
 
2020-05-30 11:22:36 AM  
So if I understand him, the cops didn't kill George Floyd, Floyd killed himself just to stick it to the cops.
 
2020-05-30 11:24:30 AM  
He should have been fired for that heinous use of "Are" instead of "our"
 
2020-05-30 11:24:52 AM  
Boy, he really hates punctuation.
 
2020-05-30 11:29:15 AM  
You would think the words "I can't breathe" would be a clue, somewhat like a Safe Word.

Here's to getting all worked up over something that you admit you haven't even "done your research" about.
