Nancy Pelosi said George Floyd didn’t die in vain. I don’t know what she thinks his murder accomplished. Any takers?
It accomplished a race war she can capitalize on
Do you have any connection to reality at all, super duper? Cops are over aggressive everywhere to everyone but to blacks the worst easily. Obviously. Thank God for smartphones.
I agree but Floyd was a criminal and abuser of women. He is no hero or martyr.

A picture was debunked?
Is that all you got bro?

Here's the guys actual criminal record. Notice that little incident up in the right hand corner? It reads: 'Aggravated Robbery With A Deadly Weapon'.


View attachment 483061

Floyd's criminal background is not what is relevant, what is relevant is he was murdered by a white police officer and that officer was found guilty of the crime. Floyd is just another victim, in the same way Emmitt Till was just another victim, but the attention their deaths brought raised the exposure of their mistreatment by law enforcement.

Rosa Parks was just a passenger on a bus, we didn't worry about her education or background, but were forced to confront her treatment.
If that’s the case why was he not charged with a hate crime or violation of civil rights? Please explain. To me GFs criminal background is important but only due to Karma. He was no hero.

It wasn't a hate crime, what makes you think his murder of Floyd was a hate crime? He didn't specifically target the man because he was black, he killed him during his apprehension through wanton neglect for his health and welfare while under restraint. He was essentially charged with violating his civil rights, only the charges were far more consequential, as to make those charges negligible.

He was not charged with violation of civil rights as that is a federal offense and would be tried in federal court. If it wasn't a hate crime or a violation of civil rights then why the fuck are we allowing all this racist jargon and civil unrest? Please explain, leftist.

I think the female victim in Houston who he held at gunpoint (gun to the pregnant belly for added effect) while him and his crackhead thug buddies ransacked her home, should have a say in this.

I'm guessing she'll say to run the carcass through a wood chipper and fill pot holes on Westheimer with the rancid meat.

BTW, her name is Aracely Henriquez. Say her name mother fuckers!

Big Foot is alive. Floyd was a violent criminal the store owner called the police because he was passing counterfeit money. He had drugs on him. Not sure what you’re defending here.
His crimes were mainly possession of Coke and his girlfriend who is white says they were both oxycontin victims. He played high school and college basketball and was a mentor to many kids and peers and his criminal record was not (everyone in the United States should get dignity when they have a job and a living weight and health care. This is pathetic. The regular people have never been as poor and unequal as they are now and of course the blacks are worse off than anyone)....atypical of people living in the ghetto. He was murdered by a cop end of story. And he was no woman abuser like half the GOP believes. Like all the other crap they believe. His criminal record is irrelevant when you get murdered...

Lots of people pass counterfeit money without knowing it. He had no drugs on him. He did not abuse any women. You are full of crap, brainwashed functional moron. All that is irrelevant anyway you can't murder people especially if you are a cop...

I think it should be in Statutory Hall, alongside other American heroes who brought forth change.

Perhaps they can include the pregnant woman he threatened and robbed in the monument also.

The video shows no such thing, just more crap GOP propaganda. If he swallowed it the examination would have found it. You believe a pile of crap and don't even care.
