Oooo so profound....Justified shooting? Maybe. Justified death sentence? no.
I read speculation about the event that the police may have clapped the cuffs on him maliciously, tighter than it should have been, to intensify the incident. Particularly telling is that he flipped out only when the cuffs were actually being put on him. Up to then everything was civil enough.he was calmly being arrested and having the cuffs put on when he flipped out
Speculation from who?I read speculation about the event that the police may have clapped the cuffs on him maliciously, tighter than it should have been, to intensify the incident. Particularly telling is that he flipped out only when the cuffs were actually being put on him. Up to then everything was civil enough.
On the other hand, from the video I can’t tell if he bolted before or after the cuff was placed on him. Hence I can’t verify this, but can only speculate. It happened too fast.
How are you inferring that from my post? All I said was that I read speculation on this. I watched the video to see if that speculation was justified. The speculation, by the way, was based in part from a cop’s own testimony. Unfortunately I do not have the link on hand and may be unable to find it. But regardless, as I said, I watched the footage to see if the speculation was justified. As I stated in my post, I cannot tell if it is. As soon as handcuffs were put on (or in the process of being put on), the man bolts, resulting in choppy footage. Due to this I made no clear statements, solely that I had read speculation on this and could not say for sure that it was warranted or not. That’s all. I also brought up how things seemed civil up until the cuffs came up which led to me thinking it may have been justified speculation. But what happened I cannot say for sure.It sounds to me like you really don't want the cops to be justified because you have a preconceived notion of cops. I can unequivocally state that the George Floyd incident was murder, plain and simple. Why can you not see that this was clearly a totally different scenario and justified on the side of the cops? It's not racist to admit that black criminals exist. Criminals of all colors and races exist. Stop looking to excuse the behavior of a drunken violent criminal.
As much as you have an affinity for providing facts, it is hard to take you seriously when you read into things that aren’t there and go off at people for it. Calm down, Mr. Mature. Have some dip.My mouth is full from all the words people have been putting in it...
