    I’m actually glad they didn’t go for 1st degree I don’t think that would have stuck.

    No charges for the other cops? This wasn’t a split second shooting where there was no time for them to intervene. They watched the cop killing the guy and did nothing, and the one even prevented the bystanders from stepping in. Maybe they will come in the next few days. I won’t hold my breath.

    Agreed. They should all get the same charge, actually. When multiple people rob and bank and an innocent person gets killed in the process, don't all the criminals get charged the same? If so, how's this different, if not worse?

    There will be looting and burning in celebration tonight.
    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is,
    as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    Reckless disregard for human life, depraved indifference, felony murder.

    I had the news on when I was in my office today, and I hate the news. That cop murdered that guy, and the guy was handcuffed. Regardless of color, it is murder and it is wrong.

    One thing I found interesting is that NBC had roughly 25 minutes of video that they pieced together to show the incident from beginning to end. All except for the 4 minutes when there was a car blocking their view and the person commenting just brushed over the fact that “there seemed to be a struggle”.

    Again, the cop is wrong and will be held accountable, but it seems the more technology we have, the harder it is to know the truth.
    Them that don't know him won't like him, and them that do sometimes won't know how to take him

    He ain't wrong, he's just different, and his pride won't let him do things to make you think he's right

    Never let a crisis go to waste.

    Think the prosecutor had advanced knowledge of the toxicology report and overcharged him by design?

    I feel the cop was in the wrong and he should pay the price for it. There is a lot of info floating around online ( true or not, idk) that seems to indicate Floyd was a pretty decent guy by most standards and was involved in some sort of church/work program for a couple years


    Is there no video evidence at all yet of how it played out prior to his ending up on the ground?

    Yep, the depraved indifference is the big part. Always charge with wiggle room to adjust downwards. Glad to see them doing this.

    Now- it comes out they both worked as nightclub security at the same club throughout 2019(the cop worked at that bar for 17 straight years)- no way possible they didn't know each other. Possible personal retribution handed out by a badge.

    I understand your question, but how would that matter? Dude was no longer a threat to anyone.

    I'm traveling right now with a former FBI, and current part-time cop in a large city in OH. His day job is a high up manager for a Fortune 100 company.

    Anyways, he gets his kicks out of using his badge to "bust heads" when needed. So we talked about this situation at length during lunch yesterday. His perspective is it doesn't matter what happened before the cuffs went on and the situation controlled. The video shows no struggle and the cop was way out of line.
