(Tea Party PAC) – As is usually always the case, nothing is as it seems when the left is involved. The country has literally been torn apart since the death of George Floyd who was killed while in police custody. The left would have the world believe that the police officers, especially the one who knelt on Floyd’s neck, are cold-blooded racists who murdered Floyd just because he was black.
The truth is much more complex and thanks to The Gateway Pundit we can take a look at the transcript from the body camera worn by J. Alexander Kueng which shows clear evidence that Floyd was suffering from self-induced respiratory distress before the police ever even laid hands on him.
Of course, it’s all really moot at this point. The left has used Floyd’s death as a catapult to overtake American society. They have seen Floyd’s death as the justification they have been waiting for to finally insist on the demands of their radical agenda which include defunding the police and closing jails but also political aspirations like full-blown socialism. The truth will never change this trajectory.
Nonetheless, let’s look to The Gateway Pundit for more:
Once you read the transcript you will understand why the Minnesota Attorney General withheld the video evidence from the public and why the defense attorneys are trying to get the information out–it exonerates the police.
The incident starts with a store manager reporting that George Floyd had just given him a counterfeit bill.
The two officers (Kueng and Thomas Lane) go outside and begin the investigation by trying to get George Floyd out of his car:
Floyd was not cooperative. He was disoriented and not acting rationally. Floyd was accompanied by another black man. In contrast to Floyd, the other gentleman followed police instructions:
George Floyd was not passive nor cooperative despite media claims to the contrary. The video that fueled outrage across America tells a very misleading story. The words of the transcript are not lies.
In the next relevant bit of conversation, Floyd concedes that he passed a bad bill to the shop owner who called the police and admits he was not following police instructions.
On page 12 of the transcript we get the first evidence that Floyd is high on something and is “foaming” at the mouth. Officer Kueng is very concerned about Floyd’s erratic behavior:
Floyd claims he was “hooping” earlier. According to the Urban Dictionary, “hooping” refers to smuggling/transporting something that is inserted in one’s rectum.
Floyd’s erratic behavior escalates as Officer Kueng and Lane try to put him in the police car:
Pages 15-21 of the transcript record the futile effort of the Officers to get Floyd into the police car and Floyd’s drug-induced frenzy and paranoia.
On page 22 of the transcript Floyd starts to claim that he cannot breath. He has not been placed on the ground. In fact, he ASKS THE POLICE TO PUT HIM ON THE GROUND. Cops are not Docs. They do not have magical powers to diagnose whether or not someone is actually having a medical emergency or faking it. Up to this point in their interaction with George Floyd, they had little evidence to trust anything Floyd said:
The bottom line is clear–Floyd’s respiratory crisis was caused by the Fentanyl he had ingested before the police showed up on the scene. That evidence is quite clear in the autopsy report. Those who have rushed to judgment in condemning the Minneapolis Police Department will have to do some major mea culpas.
