George Floyd EXECUTED by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and Officer Tou Thao
This was by all means a public execution by dishonest, abusive and racist police who act as Judge, jury and executioners. This is all too common and happens daily all over the US. Police have no accountability. Police unions are in bed with courts and have manipulated law and code behind the public’s back. The American Constitution has been superseded by a Police Officer’s bill of rights which helps bad police stay employed, avoid prosecution and hinder any proper investigation to obtain the truth and facts. While our Justice system has obviously become a joke because it has nothing to do with anything about justice and everything about the all mighty dollar. Lawyers and judges have been proven beyond the doubt as dishonorable, criminal and have weaponized our legal system in their favor.
We all watched the horrific death of George Floyd on video as witnesses begged the police officer to take him into the police car and get off his neck. This abusive, excessive and inhumane use of force cost the life of a man who was being detained by the police for questioning about a non-violent charge.
What happened: The incident began around 8 p.m. on Monday when George Floyd was suspected of using counterfeit bills. A report was made at Cup Foods, 3759 Chicago Av., where he matched the profile. The Minneapolis police were responding to the report and noticed him by his car.
- “[They] ordered him out of the car and took him into custody,” police spokesperson John Elder said.
- DeVondre Pike, a local, saw the flashing police lights and started recording the aftermath, where Floyd was then pinned in an unauthorized knee-choke, while the officer ignored his pleas for help and that he couldn’t breathe.
- As a crowd gathered to yell for his release, another officer emerged to order them to the sidewalk.
- Eventually, Floyd became unconscious and unresponsive.
- At the end of the video, paramedics come to drag his body onto a gurney and into an awaiting ambulance.
- Floyd was pronounced dead soon after at Hennepin Healthcare, according to CBS Minnesota.
The aftermath: Since the incident, four officers of the Minneapolis Police Department have been fired and an investigation on a potential civil rights violation is being led by the FBI and Minnesota’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), which investigates police shootings and in-custody deaths.
SERIAL ABUSER POLICE OFFICERS GET PAID VACATIONS AND NO PROSECUTION
Upon the officers’ firing, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey tweeted support for the decision. In earlier statements, Mayor Frey said that, “that race played a part in the encounter.”
The Minneapolis police officer shown on video kneeling on George Floyd’s neck as Floyd pleaded for help, along with Officer Tou Thao who stood by and watched, have both been involved in use-of-force incidents over their careers.
Killer cop Officer Derek Chauvin (FIRED) but not prosecuted
officer responsible for kneeling on Floyd’s neck has been identified as Officer Derek Chauvin, a 19-year veteran of the department. Officer Derek Chauvin, 44, is a 19-year department veteran. Department records and news accounts show that he has been involved in several police-involved shootings over his career. In 2008, Officer Derek Chauvin shot and wounded Ira Latrell Toles during a domestic assault call. According to a 2011 article from the Pioneer Press, Officer Derek Chauvin and other officers showed up to an apartment in Minneapolis. Officer Derek Chauvin shot him in the abdomen.

Killer cop Officer Tou Thao (FIRED) but not prosecuted
He went through the academy in 2009. In 2017, Lamar Ferguson sued Officer Tou Thao and another officer, Robert Thunder, for excessive use of force. Ferguson and a woman who was eight months pregnant were walking home when Officer Tou Thao and Thunder stopped and searched them without cause. The officers handcuffed Ferguson, and Officer Tou Thao threw him to the ground and began punching him, while Thunder kicked him.The officers took Ferguson to the hospital for treatment. Afterward, they escorted Ferguson to jail wearing only his underwear and T-shirt, rejecting hospital staff’s requests that he be allowed to fully dress. Officer Tou Thao said they arrested Ferguson due to an outstanding warrant. He said he only punched Ferguson after one of Ferguson’s hands slipped out of the handcuffs. “He tries to pull away,” After this point he’s actively resisting arrest. So I had no choice but to punch him in the face. The case settled for $25,000. Officer Tou Thao and another officer had previously been sued in 2017 for excessive use of force for punching a man in the head for resisting arrest on an outstanding warrant. The case settled for $25,000.
