Just in case you’ve been living under a rock or you’ve just returned from a trip to another universe, this heartbreaking story begins with the arrest of George Floyd. During his arrest, Officer Derek Chauvin of the Minneapolis Police Department put George on the ground and put his knee to George’s neck while officers Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng put pressure on the lower part of his body. A fourth officer, Tou Thao stood by with his hands in his pockets acting as if absolutely nothing wrong was happening.
Instead of putting the man in the back of a police cruiser, they held him on the ground in the position for nine minutes. He yelled, “I can’t breathe.” He yelled for his life, but they didn’t care about what he was trying to tell them. They kept holding him in that position for absolutely no reason for NINE MINUTES. George Floyd died right there on camera with bystanders videotaping and they couldn’t do anything about it. All they could do was watch the man die.
The four officers were immediately terminated. But that isn’t good enough for the citizens of Minneapolis. In fact, it’s not good enough for most people across the United States. So, it broke out into protest that by now has become deadly and destructive. Businesses are burning to the ground. More people have died during the protest. But this is where it gets even more twisted. Watch this video of a man busting out windows at an Autozone…

It turns out that man is a police officer who is instigating the riot. He is getting it to pop off so that they can twist the narrative. But the people there weren’t stupid. They were quick to find out that it was officer Jacob Pederson of the St. Paul Police Department.
That’s where it gets a little confusing because there are now riots in St. Paul. So, I’m left to assume this officer is kicking off deadly and destructive riots in St. Paul, which by now has his city burning to the ground too just like Minneapolis has been since last night.
This appears to be the precinct in Minneapolis where protestors gathered to demand the officers get charged with murder…
And of course, people are already questioning who actually started the fire…
So, many people are on social media talking about the riots not being any good. People are just destroying their own city and some people are just looting to get free stuff as if they don’t even know who George Floyd is.
But when it comes down to it, how much of this did the police force itself orchestrate? We already know it originally kicked off when Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd while three other officers were accessories to his murder. So, this is all on the police force who only terminated the officers. They haven’t been charged with murder yet. This is all on them and they keep digging that hole deeper with each new sinister mistake they make.
