Police experts and others who have a modicum of common
sense told graphic details of how the acts of the cop
Chauvin in pinning his knee on the neck of a prostrate,
handcuffed and subdued George Floyd, caused his untimely
Make no mistake about it. George Floyd should be alive
today but for the malicious and obscene acts of Derek
Chauvin deciding on that date and place, that it was nigh
time for George Floyd to die and die at his hands.
The three other cops, sycophants to a tee and like
Zombies, fell in line and assisted their supervisor, Derek
Chauvin, in his dastardly act of public murder.
Those three other cops abandoned their conscience and
any humanity and allowed their boss to bully them into being
accomplices to a murder. Silence to a murder is complicity
to that murder.
None had the moral fortitude to make a stand and say
anything to deter or slow the roll of Derek Chauvin in his
appointed task of morbidly snuffing out the life of another
Those other three spineless cops closed their eyes and
ears to the muffled cries of another human being slowly
being tortured to death by the knee of a craven police
Even the small crowd of anxious onlookers had enough
presence of mind to know that what they were witnessing was
a life being snuffed out on a mere pre-text of “prisoner
An EMT who was present at the murder site and realized
that Derek Chauvin was not going to allow her to interfere
with the murder of George Floyd when she yelled out for
permission to render assistance to what was by then, a dead
But Chauvin had other plans for George Floyd. Chauvin
was maniacally hell bent on sending George Floyd into
Derek Chauvin rested his body weight on his left knee
and that weight was on the sensitive neck area of the now
pleading George Floyd and that knee planted there for an
astonishing nine minutes and 29 seconds!
If you saw the video over and over again, one could
not notice the dead eyes of cop Chauvin and his impervious
responses to George Floyd who was literally begging for his
His life was being exchanged for a counterfeit
In his panicked mind, George Floyd did not have a ghost
of chance to utter anything other than crying out to his
mother and tell the brute cop Chauvin that he could not
When anyone in the assembled crowd spoke with shock or
with fear as to what they were witnessing, Chauvin resisted
all attempts for anyone to deprive him of his role of
murdering a defenseless George Floyd.
Cop Chauvin was steely minded in his mission to kill
George Floyd because of a lousy 20 dollars.
Never mind that the counterfeit bill charge was a
misdemeanor and thus the perp could have simply been issued
a summons to appear in court.
No. For Chauvin, that was too easy justice. He wanted
a life taken because Chauvin was a monster masquerading in a
police officer’s uniform.
He wanted the thrill and exhilaration to terminate a
life knowing that he only would face a trifle dustup with
his superiors for his dastardly deed…but the video recording
by the courageous teenager would shock the world and
eventually rock cop Chauvin’s life.
A watching America watched a murder play out before them
in slow time and some may still yet wonder why and what the
BLM protest is about.
For Chauvin, black life is cheap. For him, 20 dollars
was enough of a payment to him to obliterate a human being
and so when that black life was pleading to live and not to
be killed, it was as if George Floyd had a premonition about
dying when he was dragged from his car.
George Floyd was prophetic. Prophetic about his
upcoming murder by the cops. He innately knew something was
about to transpire that would leave him lifeless and his
final and frantic calls to his mom was his way of saying, “I
am coming to you Mom, wherever you are.”
The grisly death scene, as macabrely orchestrated by
cop Chauvin, was not an aberration. It was planned by cop
Chauvin. It was to be
his lasting testimony and memorial to police violence,
police hatred of Black people and Chauvin’s determination
that when it comes to the matter of Black people living or
dying, he would make that decision and him alone.
