No one is exonerating him. I was simply stating that the entire story is not know. Unfortunately Floyd is not going to be able to tell his side of the story.The videos are available.No one was fighting.They had a reason to question him, not arrest him.So who says they didn't have evidence of a crime? Also, you need a charge to arrest somebody. The police might have put him in cuffs so he didn't run away while investigating the complaint.We have no clue if he had committed a crime. He was accused by the store owner but that doesn't mean he did it.Perhaps you're right about his crime, but that particular crime should not have had a death sentence and the policeman's inept and callous application of force was criminal.George, a convicted felon, would be alive today if the asshole hadn't tried to steal money from a Black owned business.
Just shows you how stupid it is to be involved in criminal activity.
Sometimes it doesn't go the way you think it will go.
A lot of criminal activity may not be worthy of a "death sentence" but shit happens when you break the law and try to steal things.
My point is that had the convicted felon not chose to commit a crime he would be alive today.
He wouldn't have been confronted by the police had he just went to the store to buy some Dr Pepper.
They had the right to stop him and get his information but really, until they investigated and determined an actual crime happened they had no right to arrest him.
The prosecutor initially said they had to perform an investigation before any arrests of the police officers could be made and that might take nine months to a year.
Seems it took 4 days. It wouldn't have if not for the violence.
hard to question someone when he is fighting you.
the reports say he was resisting arrest. If you know otherwise, post the proof.
the only videos are the ones after he was cuffed and put on the ground. I am not defending the actions of the cops, they should spend a long time in jail, but until we know the entire story, exoneration of Floyd is premature.
neither is that black security cop that was killed by rioters-----------------WTF is your point?
