8 minutes and 46 secondsis the time George Floyd spent with Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s knee crushing his neck. Of that time, the last 2 minutes and 53 seconds he was already unconscious, but Chauvin’s knee was still pushing his neck into the asphalt.
He had been stopped by a call from a shopkeeper who claimed Floyd tried to use a counterfeit $20 note to buy tobacco at Cup Foods, a shop in Minneapolis by Powderhorn in Minneapolis.
It was no use George Floyd repeating I can’t breathe up to sixteen times, nor were the warnings of a couple of witnesses recording the scene on their phones, even when they warned police that Floyd had lost consciousness. By the time the ambulance arrived he had no pulse and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The four police officers involved in Floyd’s arrest were dismissed and Derek death floyd’s arrest were terminated and Derek Chauvin, the bastard with the knee, was additionally arrested and charged with third-degree murder accused of third-degree murder, but the shit had already hit the fan. Today marks a week of protests by people fed up with racist bullshit that has left a trail of firesriots and clashes with police, as well as many other peaceful protests in different states acts peaceful protests in different states.
Fire in the streets
Trump, the expert arsonist, who had been huddled in the bunker for a few days, after announcing that he was going to declare the “Antifa” a terrorist group, as if it were a football team, showed his orange jetus for a few days seven minutes (even less than Chauvin’s knee was on Floyd’s neck) to say that if the police and the National Guard militias don’t crack down hard enough on the rioters, he will take the Rambos to the streets and there will be no more contemplation.
If they have the hyper-militarised and militarised Pasma there, you know how martial the cartel-headed soldiers can be, and they’ve starred all over the world deeds have starred all over the world.
In the background there was the sound of the detonations of the ruckus that is still going on nearby and which is also leaving sad pictures of the police repressing peaceful demonstrators and, while they’re at it, giving a few shots and firing various little things at journalists.
In April 2021, the jury unanimously found ex-cop Derek Chauvin guilty on all murder charges in the death of George Floyd. All that remains to be seen now is how many years in prison he will be sentenced to.

Trump again says “both sides” are to blame for the violence by fascists in Charlottesville, where James Alex Field, a white supremacist killed one person and injured twenty.
