For people who don't like the government telling them what to do, they sure do want to give the police an awful lot of power. I wonder if they were murdering young white boys would they still want the cops to have that much power? No way.I think that people should understand that if you resist arrest you might well die. None of this $27 million to his family because he resisted arrest. Now everyone will do it even more. Should just have shot him.It's true that if Floyd had not resisted arrest he'd be alive. But that doesn't justify that the cop turned around and choked him to death. Chauvin was guilty. I agree with you that I don't like Floyd being hailed as any sort of great person, he wasn't. But it's not up to the cops to kill crappy people on the street, it just isn't
So if you want the penalty for resisting arrest to be death by cop on the street, get that enacted into the law.
Most people think punishments should be proportional to the crime and cops should not be allowed to be judges on the street. But you can make your case.
That you're a libertarian is laughable though, you're a statist
Reminds me of welfare. Conservatives used to love welfare for poor single moms until the Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional for them to deny poor black women when they don't deny poor white women.
Same thing here. Because it's blacks being killed, they have no empathy like they would if they were white men being murdered.
Virtually everyone on both sides supported conviction. Just doesn't fit the narrative, huh?
