No, it is not an excuse. However, what’s the excuse for those Rabid Animals with their rioting, robbing, violence , burning down buildings including individuals personally owned and even killing?So that's an excuse for snuffing him out on the street like he's a rabid dog? You are morally reprehensible. I sincerely hope you have no offspring!!!The criminal record of Floyd also did not start with a 20 dollar bill, but an armed robbery.
On the clip it is seen he drops something from his pocket, looks like the hard drugs he was on.
