    The stew had been simmering while waiting for a spark. If the Floyd incident had not taken place it would've been something else.

    Agreed. They just needed a martyr to start their shit. The attorneys will have field day with this. If they cannot convict Chauvin it will hit the fan

    They can probably still get him on negligent homicide, but murder one now seems highly unlikely.

    Yea, agreed. Thing is, didn’t Sheikh Ellison raise the charges to felon murder? Which will now be near impossible to convict?

    I'm not sure if any of you have ever been literally scared for your life like this man was but in times like that when your heart is racing it is actually hard to catch your breath.

    Even though he may have uttered those words prior to being pinned does it discredit the fact that he couldn't breathe when a knee was pressed into his neck for almost 9 minutes?

    this is from the article

    Floyd is handcuffed without a particular reason being given, and two people traveling with him are questioned. One tells officers that Floyd was mentally or emotionally disturbed by having a gun aimed at him, having previously been shot.

    He was handcuffed because he was a suspect in passing counterfeit bills. Then he resisted arrest.

    Well if he didn’t break the law, then resist arrest, he’d still be alive.

    Hey everyone, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS VIDEO SUCXX PROVIDED...

    Uh, this is really useless video. Where's the part where he resisted? Impossible ask of you being that Floyd is walked across the street by two officers on either side of him where the incident in question where he resisted arrest took place. That part does not exist in the video you provided.
