    Think the blue brotherhood kept the whole video for some unknown rationale only know by them and they are quite irritated (read PO) someone who had permission to view the footage, e.g., newspeek, etc., videoed the nonsense on their iphone and stole it and “LEAKED” the video to everyone...

    Unfortunately the bottom line is the same - - the representative(s) of the blue brotherhood allegedly intentionally killed mr floyd!

    filed under “W” - - “who cares in the scheme of things?”

    Fairly combative. Resisting every attempt to be handcuffed, and every attempt to be placed into the vehicle.

    Doesn't surprise me.

    Still doesn't really answer the "knee on the neck for 9 (?) minutes" aspect, which is a major question the case (against the officers) will hinge on.

    I couldn't get the video to play after several attempts . It's ok though , we've all heard what happened enough times to know what happened .

    One or several bad cops does not make them all bad ! I'm not for down sizing the police though !
    Personally I would never call 911 unless my house was on fire . Bad things happen in seconds or minutes at best but to some , it's all they have !

    Minnesota AG, Communist Keith Ellison is who kept the video from the public. All he cares about is the conviction of the cop.

    Knee on neck was not cool, but it looks like Saint George was about dead anyway.
    Report is he was hooping (taking drugs in prison wallet), Fentanyl?

    When prosecutions are pending, I appreciate the need for caution when it comes to releasing evidence.

    But I'd like to hope every state has iron-clad requirements for all LE/DA agencies to share with the relevant investigatory groups, the Grand Jury, etc. If not published publicly. (I'd be very surprised if all states in the U.S. did have this, but IMO it should be absolutely required.) Without such transparency and wider evaluation, it's hard to have a strong "checks and balances" aspect, and who knows what can be kept hidden for whatever reasons ... whether an "abundance of caution" from the AG, or political malfeasance from the Gov or Mayor, or whatever.

    Since this vid has gotten into the wild, it'll be interesting to see how its seen by the court. It'll likely be widely seen among the pool of potential jurors, at least spoken of. Won't likely help, with jury selection. Can't imagine it'd be considered "tainted" evidence, just because LE (?) lost its grasp of the thing in the archives.

    I think the footage is pretty mundane. What you expect a small time habitual and not very bright offender to act like. You wouldn’t give it a second glance if it weren’t George Floyd. Both sides will claim it as “I told you so. “

    Still waiting for the whole story before passing judgement from the couch.

    Had the system been quick to charge the cops all this rioting crap may have been prevented.

    BTW: The cop who kneeled on George Floyd and his wife have been charged with income tax evasion. He may get more jail time for tax evasion than for the killing of George Floyd.

    "Authorities allege in the criminal complaints that the Chauvins failed to file income tax returns and pay state income taxes, and that they underreported and underpaid taxes on income they earned from various jobs each year.

    The complaints allege that they also failed to pay proper sales tax on a $100,000 BMW purchased in Minnesota in 2018. Prosecutors say the Chauvins bought the car in Minnetonka but registered it in Florida, where they paid lower sales taxes."

    The “system” was quick. Fired immediately, condemned instantly, arrested within days. Lynching all four would certainly be quicker. Then how quick are we willing to get to prevent riots (and fail?)

    One thing is certain.

    The world is a better place without Floyd in it.

    I doubt it. As @Mercator says, they were quick to arrest and charge. The riots would've happened regardless. Any chance of limiting riots was lost the minute the "Knee Video" went viral.

    He knew the risks, or should have known as a nominal adult. If he was too retarded, a tougher justice system would have saved his life by keeping him incarcerated, away from the street life he could not handle.

    Odd, I thought only judged juries or God got to decide that.
    Not beat cops with a grudge.

    The jury will/should decide if the beat cops broke any laws.

    God will decide where the decedent spends eternity.

    Humans will sin, The Bible tells us not to judge others, but we constantly fall short.
