All four Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd death

Recommended Posts

In the US there are some very rough neighborhoods, cops have to deal with them on a daily bases. Sooner or later some of these involvements will go wrong. It is inevitable. If we keep burning the country every time..................

   George Floyd was no choir boy,  he had an arrest record as long as your arm, including arm robbery , 1998 in an armed robbery. Floyd, then 24 years old, was sentenced to 10 months in prison.But his most horrific crime occurred in 2007, where he robbed a woman's house in a robbery, pressed a gun to her stomach, and searched the house for drugs and money, according to court reports.

" Floyd had landed five years behind bars in 2009 "

To be clear, 2nd degree murder has both intentional and unintentional statutes and Chauvin is charged with 2 murder counts,  one of which is:

Second Degree Murder - Unintentional - While Committing A Felony (Minnesota Statute: 609.19.2(1)). He has an additional count of 2nd degree manslaughter and one count of 3rd degree murder as well. What differentiates 2nd degree from 1st degree is premeditation, NOT intent.

Interesting that some legal experts insist there is a strong likelihood of a guilty verdict for 1st degree murder charge in this case.

 

Anyways, not necessary to prove intent based on the 2nd degree murder charge in this case.

 

Ah huh...I know what he is charged with and really don’t want to get into a debate on what i meant by intent

Someone premeditates a crime by considering it before committing it. 

If in the course of arresting and subduing a suspect and you kneel on his neck for 8 long minutes the possibiity exists there is "intent" there. "Pre-meditation" implies that you thought through the murder prior to having the opportunity to do so, ie., like Chauvin thinking about killing Floyd while drinking his morning coffee. Premeditation indicates a time span between establishing the intent and realizing the opportunity.

Got it now?

 

Think about the word felony, that word is key in the 2nd degree murder statute Chauvin is charged with. Also key is that for 1st degree murder a prosecutor would need to prove premeditation (or pre-planning) and there is zero evidence of this in the Floyd incident. It will be much easier to prove Minnesota Statute: 609.19.2(1) as the state needs not to prove intent but argue his actions may have caused the death.

Let me know if u want me to explain further.

As I said in edited post, really not interested in a patronising debate on what I meant by intent.

Ok, I responded to your post before you edited it. I didn't see the word entry "debate" in the initial post. But from my perspective I felt you wanted me to assist you in your understanding of differences in premeditation and intent due to your interest in the subject after I offered a comment clarifying your incorrect statement(s), which I did.

I think they are all guilty as charged. That being said I find it very unlikely a jury in that city will convict them. It will be next to impossible to keep the defence  attorneys from slipping in one or two white guys who will never agree to convictions based on their own prejudices. Drugs in the guy's system will be used as the reason he died. Race and political bent play a huge role in the American justice system. There will be no justice, then the riots will start up again. They will be Joe's problem by that time. If how Trump reacted to the riots are the final nails into his political coffin it can be said Mr Floyd did not die in vain.

wonder what the charge would have been if the victim was white

No protests and no arrests, I doubt we would have heard about it had Floyd been white.

Or that video had not been made by the bystander.

But try to think about it in a positive sense, you are smarter than you were 10 minutes prior, right....or not?

Let me know if you need any further assistance, you can learn a lot here by asking questions.

Tony Timpa was killed by Dallas Police in 2016 in a similar manner with police kneeling on him until he stopped breathing and died.
He screamed “You’re going to kill me.” And they did. As he lay dead, they cracked jokes. There were no riots. Little coverage. He was white.
Warning - disturbing video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_c-E_i8Q5G0

 

This video doesn't play into the narrative required to maintain the protesting. Worth a look, I guess it was his "white privilege' that got Tony in that position.

Nothing to discuss about pertaining to what ifs or perhaps buts about the victim potentially being white. There is absolutely nothing special about Caucasians. Most here are deluded, thinking they are vastly superior than us Asians or blacks or other non-whites. Whites have an equally unpleasant smelling flatulence and feces. They get sick like everyone else. They pass away and decompose like all other human beings. Their long noses contain the same smelling ability as those of non-whites (apart from that additional skill of using it to meddle in domestic affairs of sovereign nations!). The superiority complex is atrociously nauseating.

That’s not the point the guy was handcuffed no excuses none nada zip zilch no that beeing said it’s a tough job to be a cop it’s easy to be a bully behind the badge or wealth in the case of trump and spare a thought for the other 3 cops caught up in this imo it would have taken great courage on one of their parts to stop it risk their career or beeing ostracized by their fellow cops it’s a snafu to be sure but imo no excuses Floyd was cuffed andno threat no excuses this kind of stuff needs to stop

Yup, & we don't ever shower too. We are larger though.😂

 

Back on topic....

 

There is a relevant discussion to be engaged about colour, because of...well too many things to mention, which I thought you - allegedly being Asian would understand.

 

Floyd may well have been all manner of dreadful things, but he did not deserve to die.

 

He probably had a dreadful upbringing, & vile role models. It isn't an excuse, but it goes a long way to help understand his criminal - but it seems not on the 25th, behaviour.
