It's good to see something being done. Their punishment will not be snuffed out with a knee on the neck until dead. Even if your record reaches around the USA there is no reason to suffocate a person. Let a judge and jury decide.
I rarely comment on any social media accoubts. I signed up on FB years ago to keep in touch with my brother in Florida and my friend in Greece. People have changed drastically over the years and sadly not for the better. Because someone doesn't agree with you, or you don't like what they said,or just don't like the person you find ways to try to get them fired. Seriously, is your life so fxxked that's what you do? I have seen things on Facebook that people post and I can't believe it. I want to shake them and say are you that stupid?, but I guess that's the way the world is now 😢
I think the problem is individuals realize how much they have been inadvertently given and they are exercising it to get what they want. This reminds me a story a comedian, Bill Burr, said in one of his stand up specials. A woman walks into a restaurant/bar and sees a joke about a wife beater and tells the waitress/hostess to take it down. It wasn't so she proceeds to complain about it to the point where both manager and the waitress/hostess get fired. I guess it was financially better to fire and replace these people than risk a potential lawsuit by pathetic snowflake.
Regardless of his criminal record, He should not have been kill with a knee to his neck. Police officers should be held responsible for their crimes like all other "Criminals". When he stopped "resisting" the knew should have come off.
I admire officers jobs, and I know they get to arrest the worse of the worse, but 1 thing is to restrain other is to kill, premeditated or not. Some of the officers already had history of violence and should not have stayed as officers.
So no the fact the George Floyd had a criminal does not give an excuse to kill him like they did.
I do not approve the violence and rioting that is going around but I do believe that the justice system needs to change, there is too much discrimination and racism in this country. And even when I know many of you are not going to agree with me, it needs to stop at the top, with our President.
George Floyd a 'violent criminal' he's been involved in three police shootings
Yes I believe what was done to George Floyd was very wrong. He should still be here and all the protest should have never been. However no one know for certain it was a race issue. When someone say they can't breath listen and get off their neck no matter there color. We all should move away from racism and take each other as is.
Also the other 3 cops - none of them were white. SO that kind of throws the whole racist thing out the window.
That's not true. One of them is Hmong, one is white, and I'm not sure about the third - he has an Asian last name, but he looks mixed race to me. Anyway, are you saying only white people can be racist against blacks? I'm not saying any of them are (or not), but racism goes in all directions.
I didn't know that. I always knew they can add charges but I didn't know they can increase the severity of a charge.
I did not think they could. Once formal charges are brought. IT could be different by state. That is why the local guy was charged with 1st and 2nd degree murder. They wanted a 1st degree charge but did not think it would stick so they charge with 2nd also hoping at least he gets that. But if they could get a more serious charge they wanted that.
I believe that if the evidence supports an increased charge in the minds of the prosecution, they can increase the charge. New evidence is often found and interpreted during the investigatory phase which goes on until the trial begins. Even then, new evidence can be introduced if relevant.
Update: Charges upgraded to unintentional 2nd degree murder
Also the other three cops were charge with aiding and abetting. I really hope they know what they're doing and have enough evidence for this. I'm afraid of the consequences for all of us if this falls apart at trial.
I currently don't even see TAP listed on my survey page. Is it just me? Fortunately, I managed to do another survey through a different provider to earn my daily 5 cents.
I agree. A lot of investigations at my day time job are made so much easier by people that like to share their life on twitter, linked in, FaceBook, and google. Sometimes it is the attached friends that are able to provide direction on where people are going and what they are doing. Everyone involved in investigations at work has a second account set up with all of the large social media outlets so that they cannot be tracked when looking into the histories of alleged wrong doers.Even with all of the sophisticated software that our company has access to, due diligence is generally performed by searching people's social media accounts.I have a minimal 'real' social media presence because I am a very private person and never want my family to be exposed. Rowr to DonnaMarg?!?
Cats are so interesting. We do not have one though as I am allergic.
I am like you in respect to cats. I am allergic, and to some, my experience is that I can be highly allergic. Others, at times, not nearly so much. For example, my youngest daughter and her husband acquired a Maine Coon about 2 years ago and I seem to be able to tolerate it pretty well. However, the home environment might be helping. They have no carpeting and their furniture is all leather. I don't think these surfaces "absorb" and hang onto the allergens.
I bought a new washer and dryer about 4 years ago. I bought Maytag, and replace Maytag washer and dryer which were about 20 years old. Mine does not have an agitator so I can wash big items in it. The only thing I hate is you canít stop the washer easy once itís on. My old one all I had to do was open the lid. On this one it locks and you have to hit a button for 3 seconds and it will stop but it still takes about 5 minutes until you can open the lid.
