Thread: Justice for George Floyd petition

    Justice for George Floyd petition

    You guys can sign it in the link. No post/zip code needed.

    It is so sad that another person of colour died from police brutality in America. Aren't the police meant to protect the citizens? Instead of using disproportionate force? This should not be happening in the first place but the best thing we can do now is to make those who abuse their powers accountable.

    If you’re interested you may want to read about the Jim Crow laws
    https://www.history.com/topics/early.../jim-crow-laws


    Although in theory they were abolished in 1965 a number of states still have parts on their statute books. Local law enforcement officers it appears have often gotten away with abusing people of colour under some of the far reaching local societal applications

    For a recent example there was a women who called 911 because she as frightened by an African American in Central Park. The question in my mind was why on Earth she considered this to be an appropriate action if there wasn’t some ingrained belief in her white rights.

    NYC blue will know more than I.


    But the really worrying thing is She’s not alone

    Let's be real here NYC, he probably will

    The treatment of black men by the police in the big urban centres of the USA, like Minneapolis, is a scandal

    George Floyd death: Ex-officer held in Minneapolis
    A man sacked as a police officer following the death of unarmed black man George Floyd in the US city of Minneapolis has been arrested, officials say.

    Derek Chauvin is one of four police officers who were fired after Mr Floyd's death in custody on Monday.

    Glad it is murder not manslaughter, hope he gets what he deserves.The man has previous problems on arresting people 17 i read.He is nothing but a scumbag.
    Glad our police try to diffuse a problem before it gets an issue.

    If there is one thing in favour for murder, over us life is life or death in America

    Re: Justice for George Floyd petition

    He's been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. Third-degree murder is only defined by law in a few states. In Minnesota it basically means accidental homicide.

    Manslaughter basically then.
    I suppose that is about right as I would have thought he hadn't meant to kill the man.

    Still a piece of work though and hope they take previous into account.

    They both worked security at the El Nuevo Rodeo restaurant/nightclub, which is just down the road from the Minneapolis 3rd Police Precinct.

    That's the first thing that his lawyers will go for, that all his previous should be disregarded and that he can't get a fair trial in Minneapolis or St Paul. Next thing, his trial gets moved to a different (ie more white) county and there'll be no people of color on the jury.

    He was arrested for passing counterfeit US currency, so unless he has his own printing press this could be connected! George and his killer both worked at the El Nuevo Rodeo restaurant/nightclub.

    George was killed by the person who arrested him for passing counterfeit dollars, and they both also happened to work at the same place together.

    Must have been the people of the UK signing a worthless petition which sealed his fate. :rollseyes:

    There is a possibility that George knew his killer, and the counterfeit money he was passing has its origins in organised crime. Let's see what the DOJ & FBI come up with.

    Only if youíre exercising whilst signing the petition otherwise and more likely itís doing exactly that.

    Sitting on your arse eating your time filling out a petition that nobody is going to take any notice of.
