George Floyd Revisited Part I: Derek Chauvin
Was Wrongfully Convicted

Original Article

Posted By: DVC, 3/25/2024 3:22:51 PM

On Monday, May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a man with a significant criminal record including a five-year sentence for an armed home invasion, entered a convenience store in downtown Minneapolis and made a purchase. The clerk at Cup Foods called the police after examining the bill. He believed it to be a counterfeit twenty. Two Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) rookie officers — Alex Kueng, black, and Thomas Lane, white — responded to the call. Floyd was in the driver’s seat of a borrowed car when Lane tapped on the window and told Floyd he was under arrest.


This is excellent. I got a copy of the autopsy immediately after it was released and spend half a day decoding the medical language to make sure I understood it. I then consulted with a professional pharmacist friend on the drugs in Floyd's system, and we concluded the same as this article, that this amount may have been lethal to a person who never took opiates, a habituated opiate abuser like Floyd wouldn't find it lethal. And the MPD training manual was found and a photo of this precise restraint method was described with a photograph as the safe and effective restraint for excited delirium cases like Floyd's.
Chauvin did not kill Floyd.

Chauvin was sacrificed on the altar of woke political correctness. Period. As long as the lie-beral Demon-Rats have control of Congress (which the latest spending boondoggle proved they even control the House with a Republi-Can't majority), and Demon-Rat appointed activist judges rule over the peasants, all the "facts" and "proof" in the world don't mean squat!!! His only hope is for a Trump pardon in his second term.

I said from the beginning that the police in this situation did nothing wrong. They were dealing with a fairly belligerent guy who was just accused of trying to pass counterfeit money. An accusation which, by the way, has been all but ignored by the press and which, I thought, was considered to be a pretty serious infraction.

A thousand likes, OP. I hope this goes somewhere but I won't hold my breath. Derek Chauvin is another one just like the J6 prisoners. I think there may be more from this incident in prison also.

My jaw dropped when, a few weeks ago, I was watching an episode of 'Adam 12' - a fifty year old TV series about daily cop experiences, and I saw them arrest and restrain a suspect using the very same knee-to-neck-and-shoulder restraint used on George Floyd!

Anyone remember what happened in Toledo? Lighting struck a huge George Floyd mural that was painted on the side of a brick building. Only his face was destroyed, with hundreds of bricks sitting on the ground.

In my humbled opinion, Derek Chauvin took the hit for a police chief/supervisor who was probably very unorganized and lacked a healthy communication style. . .

Trump Can Win Again on Building the Wall 8 replies

Donald Trump rode the escalator at Trump Tower (soon to be called Letitia’s Crib or Engoron Tower) in June 2015, promised to build a wall, and make Mexico pay for it. It was the foundation of his successful presidential campaign. In 2015, there were just under 600,000 “Illegal aliens apprehended in the United States” according to Statista. Many of those apprehended were sent back home. Today there are over 300,000 known migrants entering (and almost all staying in) the U.S. each month. Migrants are arriving from all over the world, including from geopolitical adversaries like China.

However, a spokesperson for Tyson Foods told Newsweek the figures presented in that retracted article were inaccurate. Tyson Foods responded to boycott calls in a statement.

President Biden’s and former President Trump’s recent visits to the Texas border left no doubt that the Biden administration’s open border policy has led to an invasion crisis. An estimated 7.2 million illegals have entered the U.S. under his presidency, an amount equal to the population of 36 states. While Biden continues to call for “border security,” Congress has gotten nowhere in the failed attempt to pass a law that would resume the Trump administration’s efforts to build a wall. Similarly, the Biden administration’s repeated promises to secure the border ring hollow despite being touted in the mainstream media echo chamber.

CEO Stephen Scherr's barely two-year ride with Hertz came to a screeching halt on Friday. In his wake, he leaves a company still working to recover from a big bet on electric vehicles gone bad. It will do so under new CEO Gil West, whose previous posts include executive roles at Delta Air Lines and the Cruise unit of General Motors. Scherr, who came on board in February 2022 after 30 years at Goldman Sachs, ushered the company through its emergence from bankruptcy. Hertz's EV push began in the previous year, with a splashy move to order 100,000 Tesla Model 3 vehicles.
More Hidden Risks of EVs 8 replies

An EV will likely not exceed five digits on the odometer because the cost to replace the battery in the typical 10-year span of a battery life will exceed the vehicle’s resale value, therefore making it economically impractical. Other authors have all cited valid facts about the impracticality of charging these things on long trips, the stress they will add to a fragile electric grid, the lack of enthusiasm in this country for adding additional reliable energy power plants, etc. None of this has made me want to rush right out and buy an EV, but just for the sake of developing a more complete picture,

In perhaps the most scathing condemnation yet of the young “activists” known for their pseudo-concerns for the environment, a new poll revealed that around half of them are unwilling to put their money, even a measly ten bucks (or less), where their mouth is. Here are the details, from an exclusive report at Daily Mail: Nearly half of all young voters are not willing to pay more than $10 a month to fight climate change, despite Joe Biden claiming it’s an ‘existential threat’ and making it the center of his re-election campaign.
Klamath Dams Down: Will Ranches Survive? 12 replies

The largest, most devastating dam removal experiment in modern history has reached the point of no return. As of January 23, 2024—despite opposition by a majority of local residents—the four hydroelectric dams on the Klamath River have been officially breached. Ironically, dam removal proponents claimed the project would help salmon, but now the Klamath River is being polluted with millions of cubic yards of decomposed algae, organic deposition, chemicals, and fine silt that has built up behind the dams. Dead steelhead trout and other species are floating to the banks. Any salmon spawning beds in the Klamath River were undoubtedly destroyed.

Greenies’ delusions of intelligence and enlightenment have some very serious real-world consequences, and the environmental fallout of a California dam removal project is a prime example. Here’s the story, shared by Katy Grimes at the California Globe today: Klamath Dam Removal: ‘It’s an Environmental Disaster’ The removal of dams along the Klamath River in Siskiyou County, Northern California was sold as necessary to save salmon – specifically, ‘to restore habitat for endangered fish.’ As Grimes reports, the official plans to demolish the dams were submitted in 2018, but ran into a series of roadblocks over the years; fast-forward to the beginning of last month.

Donald Trump either has a short list or a long one, depending on the media source, in his search for a running mate. Either way, he could do a lot worse than Tulsi Gabbard.

But have you seen this verse…?” the quote reads, pointing to Psalm 109:3-8.

At least eight states are planning to ban the sale of new gas-powered cars in the next decade - and others are considering joining them. Only zero-emission vehicles can be sold in participating states beginning from the 2035 model year, according to the Advanced Clean Cars II legislation. The rule, which was first adopted by California, means that automakers and dealerships would be banned from selling new gas cars in these states from that point onwards. Americans will not be forced to take their gas-powered cars off the road, however, and will still be able to buy used and secondhand gas vehicles. These states have gone further

Former Enron advisor and current New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is angry at farmers. What’s earned his wrath is that they vote for Donald Trump. He says they vote for Trump because they’re afflicted with “white rural rage.” Let’s examine the components of Krugman’s catchy phrase “white rural rage.” As for rural, it is certainly true that Trump does better in rural areas than in, say, downtown Chicago or Baltimore. Then again, everybody does better – wherever they are – than they would in the toilets of downtown Chicago or Baltimore.
