Former rapper, ex-con, and apparently an absentee father (his various kids all live in TX despite him being in Minneapolis.) Not an entirely sympathetic figure; more "real person" than flawless angel, but he certainly didn't deserve to die the way he did.

He was killed by an uncaring POS.  Then a hole lot of people took his death in vain by attacking our justice system and burning down cities.

George Floyd shouldn't be dead, firstly. Secondly, there was a lot of time and opportunity to chuck the guy into the back of the cop car.

Hanging is too good for those cops that murdered an innocent man. Let's not forget that.

I can't like or funny what you said, but you are right and its a very major part of whats farking wrong in this farking world. Very few people cared to know who he was, even after his death. Even after the deaths of many many others, in his name. Myself included.

His name was Robert Paulson George Floyd.

The quote couldn't be closer to the truth, in what is unfolding now.

You sure you want to start this conversation? Ok...

Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer arrested in the death of George Floyd, opened fire on two people during his 19-year career. Eighteen conduct complaints were filed against him, two of which resulted in reprimands.

It doesn't matter who he WAS... it's what was finally ENOUGH. We all saw that shiat... that farkin pig with his hand in his pocket... he was probably playing with his sick trying to make it hard again. It doesn't matter one damned bit who George Floyd was then, or now, because cops treat all black men like shiat.

You didn't know Floyd when Kaepernick took a knee. You didn't know him when Black Lives Matter was started... why should you give a fark anyway..?

It's the farking cops that you need to get to know. Why is the system so farking racist? Maybe you should get to know THAT???

I would guess that she was in some real danger considering what is going on.  Witness protection is probably the only way to keep her from being killed.

Tell her the truth. A parent's job is to prepare their kids for life and her life expectancy will be much longer if she fears and mistrusts all cops.

2020-06-03 5:40:45 PM  
I really gotta wonder about people whose first thought when seeing police abuse is "yeah but did he do any crimes twenty years ago."

Like what, you think Judge Dredd there saw he had priors through his CopVision and calculated using his Justice Sense that with his priors in another state half his life ago, this attempt to pass a bogus twenty deserves nothing short of a summary execution on these streets?

No, of course not. So why bring it up? Is it all right if I choke your mom to death if it later turns out she had unpaid parking tickets and fudged her taxes?

George Floyd changed my life.
MPD stopped responding... probably for political reasons... let the people suffer for challenging their privilege to kill with impunity.  No cops.  Fires everywhere.  Carloads of white males driving cars with no license plates...  circling the neighborhood like they ain't done gang raping & they're gonna bust more nuts.

When you see your entire neighborhood belching black smoke & all night watch hordes of looters walking in front of your home.
That's the sort of thing that changes you.

Sure, I hope the entire MPD gets fired.
I hope the city enacts residency requirements for the PD.
I hope MN enacts a stand your ground law.
When the cops disappeared & the looters are on my street... do you wanna risk prison for protecting your community?

I was already afraid of cops, & now the sun sets & I'm afraid the looters are coming back.

Wait, is that true? He was a big dude, I bet he was hung like a horse. That's probably why he got killed. The police patted him down and said, Damn, this needs to end NOW.

And he'd spent most of his life in Houston. His body went back there to be buried. Maybe he moved so he could pay child support. Poor people have to move for work. I know, it makes no sense. Haha! I know, it's a riot. Oh, bad choice of words.

Would that have happened if he was white? OH HELL NO.

The thing about human rights is that they apply to humans, not just the subject of humans whom we like or who are similar to us. That includes criminals of all sorts, which is why civilised countries do not use the death penalty. Once you conceded that some lives are unworthy, you're only arguing degree.

We don't get to decide that. This is why I changed my mind about the death penalty. I can understand it, for the worst crimes. I just think that humans don't have the right to take the life of other humans except in war. And war is a flimsy excuse too. That's why we end up all farked up from it. People are not comfortable executing other people. Those people who have to do it end all up farked up too, whether they agreed with it or not. Soldiers and prisoners.

So you have to start with NOBODY gets lynched, ever, for any reason. Then you work up from there.
The police are like working down.

I am not sure there is a ton of difference.  Almost every report is, it was a peaceful protest, right up until it wasn't.  I have not seen any evidence of good people leaving and bad people coming in.  It's more we are all just standing here with our hands up and 2 minutes later bricks are flying.

All those things and a porn star and he probably liked pineapple on his pizza and none of those things make a goddamn difference to the fact that he was pinned down by two officers while another knelt on his neck for 9 minutes while he begged for his life and the crowd around him begged as well, who knew they were getting filmed doing it and figured they'd get away with it because they normally do. And the reaction to it may make this country actually face it's own systemic issues.

So I can see why you'd want to make sure people knew he wasn't flawless, it has to suck knowing that this flawed man will mean more in death than you ever will in life. Get over it.

There you go. You may now make the unfortunate discovery that while other people also believe that some lives are not worthy, they disagree with you about which ones. And if someone, somewhere, thinks that you are unworthy of life, you haven't a moral leg to stand on.
