    He was in panic or something like that, not resisting per se.
    They weren't able to assess that.

    From that point on, everything went downhill.

    IMO from what we have seen via body cam footage Chauvin and Thao escalated this situation dramatically upon their arrival. Don't believe any of this would have happened had it been Lane and the other officer dealing with GF.

    Lane seems concerned about vitals and even suggests moving him to his side, to which Chauvin blatantly ignores.

    How Thao 'controls' the crowd in my opinion is 101 of what not to do.

    - #GeorgeFloyd's brother Rodney Floyd is in court representing the family today. His jaw clenches, shakes his head, he watches the video for a little while, turns his head and looks away.

    I’m pretty sure if I was in that situation and was reeling with anxiety and being scared I would resist too. I don’t think he’s actually resisting to cause harm, he’s resisting because he’s scared to death. JMO. In my eyes, I wonder if he was so scared because he felt the situation was bad and he felt something was going to happen. I’m pretty good at feelings, and I was almost robbed at work a few months ago and luckily I was able to have someone stay with me while the guys got freaked out and left since I was no longer alone. This is why they say trust your instincts. Maybe GF felt all along this was gonna be the outcome, and he was panicked!

    Possibly wasn’t more footage to show since his body cam is apparently the one that came lose and landed on the ground?

    Officers lane and kueng were literally newbies and then the “supposed” experienced officers turned up and the rest is history.

    The whole thing is just so sad as to me it could have been avoided jmo xx

    I hope that George Floyd becomes someone our grandkids will learn about in history class. I hope that May 25th 2020 will be remembered as the day that sparked change around the world. I hope that the only name remembered from this in years to come is GF. There are some disgusting comments circulating online and it makes me feel ashamed to be human sometimes but then you hear the testimony of those witnesses and realise good people do exist.
    I’m off to bed, beyond angry tonight. I hadn’t ever seen that footage before and I don’t ever want to again. Poor George. He seemed like a gentle giant to me, he didn’t deserve to die like that.

    Agreed!

    Lane and Keung were assertive and cursing at GF but I don’t think it would’ve escalated to where it did with just them. It is very clear that Chauvin and Tao were just hostile. And since Chauvin is the senior officer they all deferred to him - that was the other key component in all of this! Deference. Chain of command.

    I am sure I heard him say as least twice he was going to die or be killed

    “Are we calling for EMS?”
    “Yeah EMS in on the way.”

    Did I hear that right? Will have to rewind but I think I heard the officers just say this. (Exhibit 49, Thaos’s body cam footage)

    I couldn’t watch all of it, but saw as they were attempting to, then pushing George into the car. His fear appeared sincere to me, he seemed terrified. I don’t care why, whether it was drug-induced, from past experience, whatever. It doesn’t matter. They got him on the ground. Why was it necessary to knee his neck until he died?

    It wasn’t!

    And the “mob” (sarcasm!) was yelling at the cops because a man was being killed. Needlessly. What a sick **** DC must be. I wonder how he sleeps.

    Q for those who watched the various cams...was Chauvin first on the scene or did he arrive second and take over? TIA.
