    Who said this, Chris? You are responding to my post. Why say something like this? People keep framing it that he was killed by police for passing a fake $20. That is NOT why he was killed. He was killed, unfortunately, because he resisted every step of the way and Chauvin f'd up.
    It's not right. He shouldn't have died, and what Chauvin did was terrible. It's a terrible tragedy that he was killed. For fucks sake do people need to add a disclaimer to every post?
    It's terrible.
    It's terrible.
    It's terrible.

    Please.

    I agree that there were compliance issues later on. But the cops also came up to him like they were carjackers over $20. He looked scared shitless and it’s not hard to understand why.

    I said the charges should be manslaughter and that is about it.

    The stuff about him crying for momma (that was his gf's nickname and not his actual mom it seems) is not going to stir up emotions in me because of what he did.

    I agree with a manslaughter charge based on principle, but I don't sympathize emotionally in this case. Other cases it might be different.

    I feel more sympathy for people who commit victimless or petty crimes that get killed or die in cop altercations.

    And that is what I think the issue many people had/have with the situation.

    In turn, if I tried paying with a counterfeit $20 bill and 4 cops rolled up as if they were responding to a violent offender, I probably wouldn't resist at all.

    I'll get them for excessive force later.

    True but let's not forget. It's how it ended not how it began. It ended with Floyds hands behind his back cuffed on his stomach and unresponsive.

    He's not resisting at that point and the video clearly shows that. End of. Nothing else matters according to the jury.

    So you would have been placed in the back of the squad vehicle? Or would you have cried that you were claustrophobic?

    There's little doubt about that portion of the arrest. I agree. But the stuff that occurred earlier are factors when it comes to escalation.

    The person that needs to be commended is the girl who recorded the entire thing. Because if that video does not exist, Chauvin probably doesn't get charged.

    Resisting seems to be the common factor of these deaths. Resisting becomes a threat and either brings a bad cop to light or causes one to make a mistake.

    Get rid of law enforcement and leave it up to social services. See how that works out for everyone.

    People are going to resist arrest. Cops still need to be better.

    Instead of going the social worker route, law enforcement agencies need to put more funding towards training and less towards gear and equipment.
