  • All the defence is doing is obfuscating, spouting conspiracy theories, and essentially wasting everyone's time, it's all he can do, all the facts are against him, every witness, everyone in the field of forensics, everyone in the police, have all supported that compressing a neck into the ground, nullifying the airways, and continuing to when the individual is unconscious, is not acceptable. The argument that the crowd got to him mentally is ridiculously weak, it's baseless, Chauvin was calm and focused enough to interact with George Floyd and falsely reassure Lane, there were no signs he was intimidated by the bystanders who he ignored.

  • George Floyd was murdered because he messed with one of Chauvin's females! Chauvin assasinated Floyd over bitter jealousy of a woman they had in common! That's why Floyd says in the beginning of the video "I didn't know"!!! He wasn't talking about the $20 dollars- he was talking about not knowing the woman having connections to the Minnesota Police Dept.… but it was too late!!!

  • How could George Floyd even possibly have been on drugs? When he was asked his name by the officer after he was handcuffed, he clearly and lucidly spelled his name perfectly!!! #STOP THE RACISM #RACISM IS AN AMERIKKKAN PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS!!!!

  • You didn't even hear the testimony of the Medical examiner you heard the doctor but you all still believe the cops didn't contribute to his death ......ok

But a knee to the neck might very well have contributed to the death of someone who'd just downed all their drugs to hide them from the cops. We'll see. It's the defense's turn next week.

  • Ok, what I don't get about this whole thing is when did the clerk recognized that the 20 was fake. He only bought cigarettes so I'm sure they are not $20 a pack, so he had to tuck the 20 retrieve the change hand him his change. He leaves. Most times you get caught with counterfeit they see it before you get change which is the reason you buy a small item. If you get change and leave the store, how can they say you passed a fake bill?

    Darryl MarableDarryl Marable10 күн мурун
    • @Matthew Smith You guy should watch the trial. He accepted the $20 even though it looked fake. His manager forced him to go out and confront Floyd in his car, which he did twice. Floyd basically told him to f*** off.

    • @Matthew Smith by then suspects are gone, they usually check before transaction. It happened to me girl at McDonald's gave me a bad 10 back with change, went to she'll has station guy took one look and told me it was fake and kept the bill. I did not argue with him, he showed me it was fake. Now was I trying to fool the she'll station?, what looks like a crime can sometimes be an unwittingly mistaken as a crime. He should have been confronted there in the store, he may have had proof of where he got it.

I knew many middle class Kenyans who would trade places in an instant with a homeless person in the US. The quality of life in the west is simply staggering. George Floyd brought this on himself, and he had the luxury to do that. Over in Africa there's a good chance he'd have a burning tire around his neck just for trying to pass off that fake $20. People live in such a bubble here that when something like this happens they don't know how to handle it. Justice in the real world is swift and merciless and often comes with the tacit approval of the local authorities. Cops out there aren't gonna spend 10 minutes trying to nicely put your belligerent self in the back of an air conditioned cop car.

    • @Sheree lyn They could prove your cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and not the alcohol/heart disease. Same applies here, need to prove the knee killed him, which the evidence so far isn't supporting. BTW I understand the point you're making, it's a good point, but the evidence has to be beyond reasonable doubt, which will be incredibly hard with the autopsy report stating cause of death as overdose. ME report outweighs just about any witness testimony.
