George Floyd murder by the Police Force of the USA and the aftermath: From May 26 to May 30, 2020 (to be continued...)


How it started: The below news item from May 26.  George Floyd was murdered on May 25.

From PBS
What We Know About George Floyd's Death in Minneapolis Police Custody

The police officer who was seen kneeling on the neck of George Floyd, the black man who died in custody on May 25 following the exchange with police, was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on May 29. Derek Chauvin was fired following the incident, along with three other officers. A bystander video captured Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for several minutes, despite his pleas that he could not breathe.

The account from Darnella Frazier, who filmed the now-viral video showing part of the police encounter and said she watched Floyd being suffocated, differs from that of the police, who said Floyd was stopped because he matched the description of a suspect in a forgery case, resisted arrest and then suffered “medical distress.”
The incident has prompted investigations from state and federal authorities, an apology from the city’s mayor and comparisons to other uses of deadly force against black Americans, particularly the death of Eric Garner. It has also sparked thousands to pour out into the streets of Minneapolis to protest, largely around the intersection where Floyd died. The gatherings were a rare sight amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has kept  most people in some form of isolation for weeks.................

   
   
   

You have to see the entire thread of tweet below to understand how this terrible man is lying about how and why he got beaten up and by whom.
 
  

Below yet another disturbing tweet with vid that shows the "national guard" (ex soldiers) skilled in killing and bullying people in the Middle East and Africa) now trying out their embedded skills on Americans.  Chickens are coming home to roost,  yup!!
