    As was stated above whatever he dropped isn't any part of the issue. And it didn't justify his death.

    No I think there are a lot of people who only want all the evidence if it supports their preconceived notions.

    Come on Don, your posts are usually good. This one served no purpose. He could have dropped an AK and a dozen knives. He was cuffed and not going anywhere.

    I dont care if he was a serial killer who kicks puppies and orhans, police are professionals and should conduct themselves as such. The man is not resisting. He could of easily been brought in alive.

    Yep, looks like he drops a bag of drugs.

    Doesn't change a damn thing with regard to the officers' misconduct, however.

    Yeah...I'm gonna call BS on that.

    Looks like a business card in the street to me. The proof? The police don't leave baggies of drugs laying in the street while they stand around ignoring them.

    Where did you find a video of what he was doing when 3 officers decided they needed to hold him down? I haven't seen that one yet.

    We've been talking about toxicology reports and reports of Floyd being intoxicated for days. Now, we see apparent narcotics dropping out of his hands. I can understand a charge of 3rd degree murder (sounds a lot like manslaughter). I'm fine with letting the judge and jury decide, but they should have all the evidence.

    He allegedly resisted after this when they initially try to get him in a car. No video of that has been released that I know of.

    They do, if they miss them. It happens. When an officer finishes an arrest, he or she should search the back seat of their car. Every so often, they'll find a bag of dope or a weapon.

    I'd like to see the body cam videos before declaring that Floyd did not resist.

    Ask yourself:
    1. Why wasn't Floyd in the rear of a police vehicle?
    2. Why was Floyd on the pavement?
    3. Why were three cops kneeling on him?

    Preconceived notions of racism. They're racists. There are a lot of racists which is why we are where we are.

    Interesting and not surprising.


    "Fentanyl Abuse: Top 11 Facts About This Potent and Deadly Opioid

    Just 2 to 3 milligrams of this drug can kill a person. It blocks opioid receptors and its most dangerous side effect -- like other opioids -- is respiratory depression, which can quickly lead to coma and death.

    https://www.drugs.com/illicit/fentanyl.html "


    I wonder, if any meth was in his bloodstream as well?

    It would be a significant error to attack the character of the deceased in this case.......... unless it was a drug contributed directly to his death I think the process will only make the situation worse.

    Debate settled. It's a business card or something very similar, it was there before George Floyd and the police ever got there, and here's what happened before the little bit of video we have all seen:
