    Nothing like profiting handsomely from a tragedy. I hope they use this money to help rebuild the businesses they got destroyed.

    Obviously there's going to be a huge wrongful death lawsuit by GF's family against the City of Minneapolis. And, give the evidence, the finding is going to be in their favor. However, when it gets to the compensation stage, I really hope that the GoFundMe payout is included in that calculation.

    Of course, this is never going to get to trial. The city will settle the lawsuit, like for another 8 figures.

    I'm gonna need the police to kill somebody in my family.

    Unfortunately, they are all straight, white, southern, Republican hunters and shooters (except for a few distant relatives in Florida) even the women, so we probably couldn't drum up $75.

    Probably a sizeable portion made with stolen credit cards.

    I can only assume that he is talking about the one who was a convicted home invader, a user of hard drugs, a purveyor of counterfeit money, and "contributor" to an online porn community.

    I think if you read up on the arrest details you might understand the comment...

    What exactly would you call a man who points a gun at a pregnant woman's belly while his friends rob her apartment?

    If the pregnant African American woman who’s home Floyd invaded and pointed a gun at her stomach would have shot him years ago non of this would be happening.

    By all released crime sheets, Floyd was a prime POS.

    There is nothing in the news, but basketball player Cobe helicopter death, of felon Floyd death. That is somehow a black life matters more than everything else and even the country's future. I find that discussing headline news today is useless, since the media owners just play with us like with the fools. The liberals control what is discussed publicly, that's the ugly truth.

    So George Floyd moved to Minnesota from Houston, Texas in 2014 after he served 5 years in Harris County Jail for a 1st-degree felony. Trying to start a new life of what? Maybe crime I don't know all the details but I do know this. Human beings should not die the way he did and George was a human being. Flawed yes but a human being.
