George Floyd and Antifa
by David Sims
ON 25 May 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, it finally actually happened. A White police officer used unnecessary force against a Black male, who then died.
There have been many fake news events in which this scenario was falsely alleged, but which in reality involved a male Black attacking a police officer. Examples include the case of Michael Brown in 2014 in Missouri or the case of Angelo West in 2015 in Boston. But, this time, it looks like it happened for real.
The male Black was named George Floyd. Officer Derek Chauvin, as seen on video, kneeled on Floyd’s neck for several minutes, even after Floyd became non-responsive. Floyd was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.
Most of the time, the death of a Black at the hands of the police is justified as legitimate self-defense, and anyone who says otherwise is a race-baiting liar. But, as this event shows, that isn’t always true. Sometimes, the cop is at fault.
The medical examiner who did an autopsy on George Floyd said that Floyd had a number of medical conditions that made it much more likely that his treatment by Derek Chauvin would result in Floyd’s death. The cause of death, in other words, wasn’t any crushing of Floyd’s neck by the weight of Chauvin’s body applied via his knee. It looked as if it might have been that way — but it was not, according to the coroner. What Derek Chauvin did to George Floyd was unnecessarily risky, and it was an excessive use of force, but most people would have survived. Because of hidden frailties, George Floyd did not.
George Floyd didn’t die of asphyxiation or strangulation. He died of a combination of intoxication, damage to his organs due to a cocaine addiction, and excessive roughness by the police. So Derek Chauvin’s actions might be reasonably construed as manslaughter, or possibly third degree murder, by a jury; it wasn’t a premeditated first degree murder, as I believed before I heard about the medical examiner’s report.
[UPDATE: The Floyd family just got 85-year-old celebrity forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden and Black Dr. Alicia Wilson from the University of Michigan to do an independent autopsy, and it is no surprise that they disagreed with the official report, finding that Floyd died of asphyxiation. The county subsequently amended its report to support homicide in which the knee on neck restraint, combined with fentanyl intoxication, and recent methamphetamine use, as well as existing heart disease caused Floyd’s death.]
By the way, not all of the current arson in Minneapolis by “protestors” angry about Floyd’s death is being committed by Blacks [though most of it is]. Some of the fires are being set by Antifa activists who [in some cases] are pretending to be [or are misreported to be] “White supremacists.” This sort of criminal activity is called a “false flag.”
These communist Whites are also leaving stacks of bricks in front of buildings for the convenience of rioting Blacks who will come along later and will throw the bricks without thinking to question their suspicious provenance. At least one of the Antifa terrorists is going around vandalizing cars while holding an umbrella and wearing a gas mask to hide his face.
