No, because in cases like this I (we) don't know the full story.Gold said:I've seen the videos. Do you have something to add besides vague insinuations?
He died with a police officer's knee on his neck...
If this was a done deal we wouldn't need to hold a trial.
In case you haven't been paying attention there are a lot of back stories going around. I do not repeat unverified speculation.
No Garner was killed during a botched arrest "while" selling illegal singles...not killed "for" selling the singles. Arguably it is a waste of scarce resources to police such pettit crimes, but the city wants their tax revenue. In this case it cost a man's life.That's exactly what happened in the Eric Garner case. He was killed for selling a single cigarette. I see no evidence to the contrary about George Floyd. Once again there seems to be some vague insinuation.
Use of lethal force (except for self defense) during arrests is already against the rules, so it appears that we have judgement, training, policy, or other issues to resolve. If a given police officer has a pattern of using excessive force, he shouldn't still be a police officer.
you said ass.... :Now you are just talking out your ass. I guess it's an opinion.
I was referring to the Drew Brees statement and apology, I refered to Lebron because he injected himself into it. Don't expect me to diagram that all again.I think you are talking about taking a knee. That of course had nothing to do with disrespecting the flag but was a protest about police brutality. Sounds familiar.
