The family said the second autopsy proved death by asphyxia but they pretty much know the media is going to be all over anything they say.

    Well he is a martyr now and it all falls on the jury now. The BLM sure picked the wrong case to glorify a victim of police mishandling of authority in my opinion. But this case is all about White privilege now and they even have The Catholic Church on board at mass now pushing the theme about him and those horrible white people that caused it.

    Catholic Pastor Gives BLM-Themed ‘Racial Justice’ Prayer Denouncing ‘White Privilege;’ George Floyd Photo Showcased Front Of Church


    Closing an 11:30 a.m. Catholic Mass last Sunday in New York City, Pastor Kenneth Boller asked Mass participants to join him in a “racial justice” prayer that acknowledged and denounced so-called “white privilege” as the church’s streamed Mass panned to images of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

    The Church of St. Francis Xavier, a Roman Catholic parish in the Jesuit tradition, showcased the images of the alleged victims of “racial injustice” at the front of the church, to the left side of the altar.

    How to avoid being shot by a cop - written back when LA still believed in law enforcement

    Cheri Lewis, Deputy District Attorney, Los Angeles, California

    I've devised a five-point plan to help citizens avoid being shot by police. This plan may not prevent all shootings, but very few will take place when the plan is rigorously adhered to. Here are the rules:


    It seems elementary, but this rule is lost on many folks. They do the crime, get shot, and then wonder how it could have possibly happened to them? They whine that it's so unfair. Well, Slick, violent crime, like jumping in front of moving cars, is a high-risk occupation, and, in case you missed it, committing violent crime makes police officers think you might not be a good person.

    Rule # 2: If you ignore Rule # 1 and the police confront you, DON'T RUN AWAY FROM THEM.

    I know it's hard to believe, but that may make them think you're guilty of something. Hiding in bushes or closets makes some cops (mostly older ones) very nervous. They might even foolishly conclude that you're up to no good!

    Rule # 3: If you disregard rules 1 and 2, and the cops catch up with you anyway and inform you that you're under arrest, DON'T MAKE FAST MOVEMENTS WITH YOUR HANDS.

    I know it sounds silly, but grabbing a shiny beer can, a dark-colored wallet, or one of those snazzy and real-looking replica guns may make police officers mistakenly believe that you're about to hurt them.

    Rule # 4: If you disregard rules 1, 2, and 3, and manage to get what looks like a deadly weapon into your hands, DON'T POINT IT AT THE COPS.

    We all know that you're basically a nice person, but that may be lost on the police officers confronting you. In their paranoia, they may even believe they need to protect themselves.


    They may be too preoccupied to realize that you're normally a splendid person and that you're just having a bad day. They may be too preoccupied to see that when you point a weapon at them in a threatening manner, it's just your way of crying out for help. We both know that the whole problem can be traced to the fact that your mother didn't breast feed you, but some police officers are so cynical they just don't see it.

    So, there you have it. If you really apply yourself and obey even some of the rules listed above, I bet you'll avoid the vast majority of police gunfire.
