“We’re feeling good,” Philonise Floyd said Monday on NBC’s “Today” show. “We know that this case, to us, is a slam dunk, because we know the video is the proof. That’s all you need. The guy was kneeling on my brother’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, a guy who was sworn in to protect. He killed my brother in broad daylight.”
Granted, we have never convicted people in this country based on a video. We used to have a functioning justice system that required a trial by a jury of your peers, and both the prosecution and the defense presented their cases to obtain a verdict. But things have changed a lot in the country in the last couple of years. We no longer have any due process. All we need is an accusation, a plausible narrative, or a video – or even better – the media’s interpretation of it.
But I am willing to entertain Mr. Floyd’s idea – with one caveat. We have to watch the full video – not just the 8 minutes and 46 seconds that’s been played ad nauseum by the media trying to push the “police is running around killing black men for no reason” agenda. You can view the full version of the video here.
The video is shot by the officer’s body cam, and clearly shows that Minneapolis police is very racist; they were targeting George Floyd for no reason other than that he was black; they planned to kill him from the moment they met him, and they finally did – again, for no reason other than George Floyd was black. If you had any doubts about any of that (which would only prove that you are a racist), the facts become very clear once you watch the full video.
The first thing you see is the police officers just wandered into a convenience store in search of a black person to harass. The store owner didn’t call the police to report a crime – no. The officers were out there walking the neighborhood looking for black men to kill, as the video clearly shows.
Once the police found their victim, they wasted no time killing him for no reason. Here are parts of the police interaction with George Floyd that prove that the killing was planned from the beginning and was obviously racially motivated.
“Put your f$$g hands on the wheel” – that’s clearly racist. No white dude stoned out of his mind ever heard that from a police officer.
“I am not shooting you, man” – that clearly shows an intent to kill.
“Stop resisting!” – that is never said to a white person because police officers are totally ok with white folks not cooperating.
“We are trying to get you out of the street so you don’t get hit by a car” – a blatant attempt of cold-blooded murder.
“You got an ID on you?” – any Democrat would tell you that asking a person of color for an ID is racist.
“Spell your name for me.” – expecting a person of color to know how to spell is definitely racist.
“We are here because it sounds like you gave a fake bill to the individuals over there.” – just the fact that the convenience store owners called the police is a clear manifestation of white privilege. Even though the video shows that some of the people who worked in the store were not white.
“Do you know why we pulled you out of a car? Because you weren’t listening to anything we told you.” – expecting a black person to listen to police instructions is racist.
“We are going to sort all this out.” – that’s another threat of violence.
“You are still trying to reach your side. You are making me nervous.” – a police officer would never say this to a white person because police officers are totally fine with a white person pulling a knife on them.
“Are you on something right now? Because you sound real erratic.” – was there an N-word in there somewhere?
“You are not listening to nothing we are saying.” – clearly a racial slur.
“Take a seat. I’ll roll the windows down.” – that’s how all murders start.
“You are not working with me.” – if you don’t think that’s racist you will never get it.
This is the part of the video that the media did not bother to show you. The only part you saw is the infamous 8 minutes and 46 seconds where Derek Chavin is kneeling on George Floyd’s neck. CNN does not stand for “Context Not Necessary” for nothing – if you are looking for any kind of context to any police incident involving a person of color, you are obviously a vicious racist.
The video further shows that the four officers’ attempts to get George Floyd to cooperate and get him inside the police car were unsuccessful because George Floyd was a 6’8″ giant (according to the description of the store owner’s testimony at the end of the video) and was severely intoxicated, (Unknown to the officers) -medically compromised, and completely out of control. George Floyd was resisting throughout the full video. But I am sure if the suspect was white the officers would call a social worker for help.
The video also shows what the three other officers “complicit in the murder” were doing. Two of them were holding George Floyd down helping to restrain him because he was still resisting arrest, and one was controlling the crowd on the street making sure no chaos erupted – as it sometimes does with these kinds of police encounters. That makes them an accessory to murder.
I think I am ready for my verdict now, and here it is. The “social justice movement” that has been destroying American society since last May was perpetrated using the biggest lie in the country’s history. The American media is the enterprise that is entirely responsible for this destruction, and for the loss of lives that it caused.
As far as Derek Chauvin is concerned, I would really like to know why he kept kneeling on George Floyd’s neck for almost 9 minutes when the video shows that Chauvin’s attempt to restrain George Floyd produced the required effect after about 4 minutes. Floyd clearly stopped resisting and became unresponsive at that time, so I don’t know why Chauvin didn’t back off once that happened. However, I am not a trained police officer. I do not know of all the safety protocols and the reasonable use of force allowed, and I don’t know why the officer felt he continued to be in danger after the suspect stopped resisting. I am always willing to give a police officer the benefit of a doubt, however, because police officers are out there risking their lives protecting mine every day. And I hope the trial produces an answer for us.
Before Floyd’s death, the leading cause of black homicides was black perpetrators. Following his death, the baseless attacks on American law enforcement are further fueling the leading cause of deaths of thousands of young black men – and it will only get worse. That is a true face of American racism, perpetrated by the American Left and cheered on by the mainstream media.
