    Instead, watch August's posted video clearly showing Floyd resisting arrest. Sucxx is a blind idiot.

    Which is why I did her a solid, and provided that part.

    Im just here to save lives.

    But this is a perfect example of what a low information voter is. This kind of media manipulation ensures a large group of people stay completely ignorant to the truth.

    No, they know "the truth."

    It's facts they're short on.

    You make no sense, this is the video where he is initially handcuffed and arrested. So we should ignore it. This is the issue blacks have, there is a double standard.

    The bodycam videos side by side in court with the coroner's report will make it virtually impossible to convict the police. Evidence basically points to a convicted felon, high on fentanyl, caught breaking the law while on probation, having an anxiety- and drug-induced panic attack, causing difficulty breathing and ultimately cardiac arrest. The knee-on-neck thing will be found to have contributed in a non-negligible way to Floyd's death, but non-malicious, and ultimately harmful only because of the underlying physiological response Floyd was having to the opioids. As a result, there will be evidence enough to reprimand the cops for unprofessional behavior, but not enough for homicide or even manslaughter.

    You stating there was no resisting arrest. You were proven wrong.

    Time to just shush.

    While high on a fatal dose of fentanyl and acting strangely.

    Can't wait for that verdict. Ammo production just can't keep up with demand...

    If the Boston Bomber can't get an impartial jury in Boston, the first question here is going to be, where is the trial to be held?

    Everyone involved in arguing that question will be aware that the first Rodney King trial -- giving the acquittals and the riot -- was in Simi Valley.

    Can someone point me to the exact time in the video when he is resisting?

    Not true. Had a knee not been on his neck and 3 other officers not kneeled on him for 9 mintues he would be alive. He was clearly not a threat when they had him subdued. It was torture what they did to that man.

    How do you know the dose was fatal? What exactly is strange behavior? Is there a legal definition? Is being high and acting strange grounds for execution?

    Floyd had a rap sheet a mile long and was freaking out at the arrest like he had no clue how this "You're under arrest!" procedural sh*t is supposed to go down. He claimed to be claustrophobic and resisted getting into the police car, when he was found behind the wheel of another car. The cops suspected he was high on PCP and/or marijuana and that this was the reason for his behavior, hence why they gave up on putting him in the car and not-so-gently restrained him until medics could arrive. Had they been experts on the physiological responses to opioids and fentanyl and suspected that's what they were dealing with, perhaps they would've chosen a different approach.

    Missed the point( as usual)...if he doesn’t break the law, if he doesn’t resist arrest, then he’s alive today.

    Those facts are undeniable.

    Most of the video. It’s clear to those not blinded by hate and racism.

    Floyd did resist arrest, there’s no question. But if the officer was going to keep his knee in that position for that long, it was his duty to reassess constantly make sure to make sure that he is still OK.

    This is true as well. Had not made the conscious decision to take Fentanyl illegally, and had he complied with the officers commands as most people do, he would be alive today. Floyd made some bad decisions before he ever came in contact with the officers. This doesn’t relieve the officer of his responsibility, but it is a stark reminder not to resist arrest but deal with it afterward if you feel you were wrongly arrested.

    Never said the officer wasn’t responsible....but as you stated, a series of very poor decisions led to that single event.
