See, what would be helpful is if there was some kind of extended video of the circumstances. You know, something that would show any kind of hint at all about what could have lead to Floyd's death.

I hear this video exists, but there's some kind of Westworld function where racists can't see it or even acknowledge its existence. I'm grateful Tucker is on the case.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Well, some of the circumstances were in the video I linked to.

To say that anyone who sees the facts and/or the way the case was handled differently than you do is

<boom boom boom boom>
Racist
<Whooooaaah!>

is not a real argument.

The was an autopsy done. There's also a pretty detailed timeline where Floyd gradually expires with Chauvin's knee on his neck. He was even told by another cop that they couldn't find a pulse, and Chauvin still didn't remove his knee. Chauvin had been trained that restraining someone with a knee on the neck could kill someone.

Once Floyd was in their custody, they had a responsibility to protect him. Cops are trained that suspects may have pre-exisitng health conditions.

When someone does something on camera that they know can kill someone, and continues doing it after being told the person they are restraining is dead, you have to do a lot of mental gymnastics to decide this person is getting railroaded.

Tucker is looking for racial stuff to spin up the rubes. This is this week's play.
