Was justice denied for a politically correct outcome ?I wonder sometimes.@freightgate
. Really? Really? I am not going to explain about the overwhelming evidence against Chauvin. That has been very succinctly explained by @Valvegear
. But riddle me this, was the Conviction of Police Office Noor of the killing of Justine Damond, politically correct?Such a weird year that in 2021, a convicted criminal's death is turned into some case of martyrdom.@Upven
. That is 90 shades of bs right there. It is a truly pathetic argument. Here you are totally missing the point so completely. I do not care if he had the crown jewels up his rear. So he should die for a minor misdemeanor because of a crime he had served time for over a decade ago? That is so irrelevant its not funny. OK by that same logic, when Dylan Roof or that a$$hole who shot 8 people gets out, and they get stopped by the police for a minor infraction, by your logic they should die because they are convicted murderers. The defence tried to sullie the name of Botham John when he was killed by Amber Guyger in his own home eating Ice Cream in his Jocks. That he had marijuana in his draws. Big deal, so they want to convict him of smoking a joint whilst black?
Floyd was killed like an animal, in the most brutal of circumstances, completely stripped of his rights.
So for me, its not the bloody point at all. He was arrested for a minor misdemeanor and for that he winds up dead. The reason why his case was so highlighted is because it was captured on video. There was overwhelming evidence. But it is not just about George Floyd. Its about Breonna Taylor, Armaud Arberry, Botham John, Atianna Jefferies, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Philando Castille and I can go on and on.
The point is the injustice and systemic racism that black people face at the hands of law enforcement. Black people are losing their lives because of such minor offences and yet white man after white man after white man after white man after white man commit mass gun shooting murders in the US and if they don't commit suicide (GOOD), then they get a happy finish from law enforcement and safety in a prison cell. And as a black person in the US that would pi$$ you off to put it mildly.
, you can dismiss it as being partisan all you like, but the truth is in the US white people are given the benefit of the doubt by the Police, black people are not.
The fact that the both of you, confronted with overwhelming video evidence and testimonies from emergency services, other police officers, a $hit load of witnesses and the autopsy report, are making excuses for a psychotic racist nut job is just mind bogglingly offensive.
And there are millions who think just like you. Who get their information by watching AOWD (A
ude) networks like FOX, Sky News Australia and NewsMax.
And that is why BLM exists warts and all.
