President Donald Trump on Wednesday called the death of George Floyd "very sad and tragic" and said "justice will be served" in the Minnesota man's case.
Floyd, 46, died Monday night after a Minneapolis police officer pinned him by the neck with his knee for more than eight minutes. Video of the incident shows Floyd pleading "Please, please, please, I can't breathe," before he died.
What little I truly know, it seems that murder charges should be forthcoming and rightly so. Taking one's knee and pending down a man's neck to concrete is totally uncalled for and no way can be justified. There are good cops and also too many wannabes Rambo's having high power guns and cars give them a certain high that is dangerous to men and women who may not do that much wrong~I found that these men and women given a little authority often that authority goes to their heads, and makes them think that EVERONE that they come into contact with is to be treated as though they are a threat to them when many are not. These folks, talk a certain way, walk a certain way ( I know that are taught to take control of all situations, yet many overdo it) as though they are the jury and the judge in their cases they are called to handle. I try to hard to show respect, but I must admit that I have gotten a little upset at one or two of them over the years.
Can I give one example to be a little on the light side? Many years ago I was at the lake on the water with my boat with a few friends and got pulled over late in the afternoon by a Barney Fife
~he said who owns this boat, and I said that I did (I was sitting on the back part of the boat with my wife driving) He looked at me and said have you been drinking, to which I said yes, two to three beers~ Barney said to me, say your ABC for me..,(I wanted to ask home WHY, don't you know yours) Well, I said them to f and stop and said there you go. He said say them all the way through, by then I was getting a little upset, but did so as he requested. He looked hard to find something he could charge with me, lifejackets, etc etc. finally he could not so he let us go and made me sit down in a seat and told us to go straight to our campsite, which we did, As he was driving off I started to say~"hey Barney, you missed something"~ but forbear....
My boat inspection had expired and he was actually leaning OVER IT into my boat to find something wrong, but could not.
