I have been quietly trying to make my point about Mr Floyd.

And now I will make a post and just say it.. we all saw the vid, we are all sickened,horrified, insert adjective here, by it,,But I still think this from day 1,,, Police are 1st responders, when someone is unresponsive,,you are REQUIRED to administer aid, and they did not. I managed people for years in a field where staff had to react when someone was unresponsive, and I had to fire more than a few who did not react. I guess my point is simple,,why didn't the 4 officers react to an unresponsive person? no one I see,is asking this question. It is in my Manager mind,, a very big dereliction of duty. We don't need charges, based on political motives. we just need to go to the simple truth.. no 1st responder reacted to an unconscious individual in their care. It truly is this simple gang..

1. it's hard to wrap my mind around what I saw. Perhaps they let people die like that all the time

but this time there was video. They were SO UNCONCERNED about Mr. Floyd.

2. Those 3 officers that stood by and enabled that killer cop are equally responsible for murder. I'm

waiting for someone to ask each one, on camera, in front of the nation, why didn't you stop this murder. We as a nation deserve to know their answer.

3. They didn't just stand by. Two of them may have helped.

Warning: I had to turn off the sound to watch, and it is very difficult to watch.


New video posted on social media appears to show three Minneapolis Police Department officers kneeling on George Floyd during his arrest.

Previous video from eyewitness Darnella Frazier showed Floyd, 46, being knelt on by one officer--Derek Chauvin. CNN has not been able to locate the person who shot the new video.

The new video shows the other side of the Minneapolis police vehicle where the arrest occurred. The video appears to show Chauvin and two other officers kneeling on Floyd.


In the horrific original video, we only saw Chauvin with his knee on George's neck. This new clip was shot sometime earlier.

As we reported, Chauvin maintained his knee on George's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds ... according to the criminal complaint. Also, for 2 minutes and 53 seconds of that time, the 46-year-old man was non-responsive.

The complaint also says one of the other 2 officers, seen in this new video on George's back and legs, suggested they flip him on his side when he said he couldn't breathe.

According to the complaint, Chauvin said, "No staying put where we got him."
