Your "resistance" argument is getting the smackdown in court as we speak. And even if Floyd HAD resisted, once you have him face down and cuffed behind the back, putting a knee on his neck for 9.5 minutes isn't excusable.
BS, there have been at least two people above Chauvin who have testified that people who are facedown and cuffed can still be a threat. Which is why cops don't just get off of a suspect after they're cuffed and faced down.
Don't forget two very important factors:
1. By the time floyd calmed down, the ambulance was already on their way. And not far away.
2. They'd already tried to get floyd into the back of the patrol car. And he fought like hell, kicking, screaming and lying about not being able to breathe.
So there was no reason to get him off the ground. And no reason to trust Floyd would NOT try to kick another cop. Chances are something that judges give. Not cops. And apparently too many judges gave Floyd too many chances. He should've never been let out of prison the last time, since he was STILL not fit for society.
