Sorry Billy000, that is not what was testified to in court.
Powerful Evidence That George Floyd Resisted Arrest
April 1, 2021 1:00 PM
"George Floyd forcibly resisted arrest. He did not verbally threaten the arresting officers, but he used significant force against them to try to prevent being taken into custody. He did not merely refuse to comply with their directives."
"That was the upshot of Wednesday, the third day of the Derek Chauvin trial, in which the fired officer is charged with two counts of murdering Floyd, as well as with a count of negligently causing his death (manslaughter)."
Though prosecutors tried some misdirection, the video and audio recordings are clear: Floyd, at six-foot, four-inches and 223 pounds (according to the autopsy report), was so determined not to be placed in the back of the squad car that, even though he was handcuffed, four grown men — police officers trained in the use of force, and pushing and pulling for all they were worth — could not get him to take a seated position.
No, I watched the video, and it was all the fault of the police.
Instead of letting him go into the police SUV upright, for some reason they tried to lay him down in the back seat, and he was way too tall, they could not close the door because his legs were sticking out so far.
So then they dragged him back out, put him on the ground, and piled on him.
I think they were deliberately trying to make him pass out.
