    If I needed a sense of humor, I would have been given one at the factory. ;)

    Just curious. How do you know that he knew he passed a counterfeit bill? Do you know that to be a fact and not just your opinion?

    Because if you have some sort of proof that Floyd KNOWINGLY passed a counterfeit bill, please post that information and sources.

    even IF Floyd did knowingly pass a counterfeit bill, it's a non violent criminal act, and in no way did he deserve to die because of it. Doesn't excuse the behavior of Chauvin or the other three officers actions, or inaction.

    Allegedly. Even if you do trust the average convenience store worker to identify counterfeit bills, he wasn't found guilty in court.

    It sounds like he was subject to arrest for public intoxication and then resisting arrest though. So ignoring particular actions, it sounds like the arrest itself was legitimate.

    Ok, so Floyd had underlying conditions. Whooppee shit!!
    It means nothing. He was fine until the actions of another caused his death. If they had not acted, or failed to act as the other three did, then he would not have had a heart attack. Which one of the frequent symptoms is a sensation of not being able to breath. They should have known this.
    The murder complaint does not say that one of them strangled the victim, just that their actions caused his death.

    I have bad lungs and heart. Yell at me all day long and nothing happens. Punch me in the chest and cause my death and you are guilty of murder. Even if it would not normally do so. Your action, although not normally deadly to a healthy person, directly caused me to have a heart attack and die. If I keel over and die, no problem. But if your actions cause the heart attack, murder. To jail you go.
    The ME report says what he died of. Basically a heart attack. He wasn't having one when it started. It apparently started after the knee to the neck started. And from the video was apparently malicious in nature. Especially since it was held even after he was apparently dead. Not to subdue a combatative suspect. I know too many good or even decent cops.
    I have no sympathy four those four. They put themselves right where their actions show they should be. Facing charges.
    Actions, or in this case partially the result of inactions, LE or not have consequences.

    If, after he had been handcuffed, he had walked out to the car, and gotten in. He would still be alive today. Think about that.

    IOW NOTHING would have happened if he had not been fighting them. The ME said they didn't kill him, his body gave out from the exertion of fighting compounded by health issues.

    Who caused his death now? The knee to the neck was not a fatal move, all the airways and blood vessels are on the other side. I'm not defending the final outcome, I'm just saying look at who caused it.

    We don't see Floyd in the below CNN video. CNN is claiming that this was taken moments before he was placed on the ground.

    Possible problems in car.
