    I think the truth is ... as already mentioned ... Floyd had a bunch of Fentanyl pills on his person, and that would have sent him back to jail. So, the idiot swallowed the damn things to hide the evidence. That's why his blood levels were 4x the lethal limit. As the interaction proceeded, the fentanyl was absorbed and he died of respiratory failure. IF .. I was the defense, I would request the results of his gastric content, and what was the fentanyl concentration in the gastric content.

    What do they need to convict? Do all 12 have to vote guilty? I think its a hung jury or he walks

    Correct. Unanimous to convict. Only takes one and he walks.

    I haven't watched any of the trial but someone told me today that there was video that the knee was actually on his shoulder and not the neck. Worries me that the defense wrapped up so quickly but that could be a good sign as well. Guess we will see

    True story. I haven't watched the trial either, but I saw that testimony and a video of it at a different angle and that's exactly what it showed.

    In the end people in general are fucking stupid and spend far too much time in emotions and not in reality. If it is proven that the knee was on his shoulder and that he was chock full of a drug that would have killed him in minutes anyway then he has to walk

    and the overall narrative, that cops are racist and kill blacks, is a lie, a dangerous like that endangers people, mostly black people, by creating an antagonistic and angry/fearful relationship with the cops.

    cops kill whites too, the media just doesnt shove that down out throats. the media is fucking relentless when a black person gets it.

    i remember maybe 2 years ago a video of a cop punching a kid in jaw with a savage right hand here in baton rouge. lucky for us, it was a idiot white kid at tigerland, and not a back kid in the ghetto. the story got no traction and that was the end of it.

    every single killing of a black person has a direct white comparable. a white guy on drugs dies with the cop on his back, a white kid with a toy gun gets lit up, etc, every single black man, george floyd, tamir rice, they all have a similar white person you never hear of because the media only amplifies stories that fir the narrative that we are a racist nation founded in slavery and sin.

    Well, in the other high profile shooting that happened, the cop that shot Jacob Blake will not face charges, but Blake's civil suit was allowed to move forward. How does that work exactly? The cop was justified in shooting him, but somehow the city is still liable?

    There are two different standards of proof required in criminal and civil law. It could be that what the cop did wasn’t criminal but still exposed him to civil liability because his actions took Blake’s life. However the loss would be reduced by Blake’s contribution to the situation. For example if Blake’s life was worth $1 million the award would be that times the percentage of responsibility the cop had. It could be 100% or less than 1%.
    Different causes of action, different standards of proof and different results.
