After George Floyd’s death, the media and leftist activist groups demanded bodycam footage of the officers involved.
They got it. The full 18-minute video that leaked laid out a much more complex scenario than had been portrayed, but that didn’t change the simplistic media messaging. George Floyd was incorrectly turned into a martyr and folk hero, despite being a violent criminal offender who was resisting arrest and had previously held a pregnant woman at gunpoint. He was also a heavy drug user who was high on multiple different drugs.
100 Percent Fed Up – Two days after MN Police Officer Derek Chauvin was charged with 3rd-degree murder, and former MN Police Officers Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng, and Tou Thao were charged with aiding and abetting the murder of Floyd, NMS Labs forwarded Floyd’s toxicology report to the Hennepin County Medical Examiners’ Office.
The prosecution waited 3 monthsto release the bombshell toxicology report from Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker, which concluded that if Floyd had been found dead in his home (or anywhere else) and there were no other contributing factors, that his death would have been ruled an overdose.
This evidence, of course, does not completely exonerate the police officers involved in the arrest of George Floyd–that is for a jury to decide, not the media or activists.
But, the media and activists demanded the videos.
And, they got them. They also got videos of subsequent incidents involving minorities in several highly publicized cases. In each case, video evidence showed that there was much more to the story than ‘evil white racist cop kills defenseless innocent minority.’
But, each time, they demanded–and got–the video and turned the event into an excuse to tear down American society with false accusations of systemic racism and white supremacy. This includes George Floyd’s nationally televised show-funeral that was used as a way to continue shaming America as a fundamentally racist place, despite the data which shows otherwise.
Now, ever since the unrest at the capitol on January 6th, 2020, the media has claimed–without any evidence whatsoever–that police officer Brian Sicknick was killed at the hands of evil Trump supporters. They insisted that he was beaten with a fire extinguisher and that reports of blunt force trauma were imminent. We reported that there was no evidence of this back in January.
Despite this, the media and unscrupulous politicians on both sides of the aisle used the death of officer Sicknick to justify myriad false claims against Donald Trump and his supporters that persist to this day and informed peoples’ opinions regarding the Senate impeachment trial.
