Just because we see something on TV or in a newspaper does not mean we know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Fact is that we have not been told the entire truth about how George Floyd died.
Here we have an EXCLUSIVE: Police bodycam footage shows moment-by-moment arrest of George Floyd for the first time – from terror on his face when officer points gun at his head, sobbing before he’s shoved into squad car and begging to breathe as his life drains away (dailymail.co.uk). Oddly, the video was leaked to a foreign newspaper. This news article contains a video.
The footage includes more than 18 minutes from Officer Alex Kueng’s bodycam and 10 minutes from Officer Thomas Lane. They were the first two cops to arrive on the scene after a complaint that Floyd had attempted to pass a fake $20 bill to buy cigarettes at Cup Foods, a store in the Powderhorn Park section of Minneapolis.
You think Floyd was murdered? Take the time to watch the video. Then consider Tucker Carlson Discusses George Floyd Footage: ‘Citizens Have A Right To Know Why Things Are Changing So Quickly’ (dailycaller.com). Here is a teaser.
“One of the best-known symptoms of fentanyl overdose, by the way, is shortness of breath,” he continued before showing another clip, this one of Floyd screaming and refusing to get in the police vehicle. “In the video, Floyd complains that he is having trouble breathing, famously, but he says this long before Officer Chauvin kneels on his neck.”
Floyd had enough fentanyl in his system to kill him.
We are in the midst of an election campaign unlike any we have seen in anyone’s living memory.
- The Democratic Party has gone bonkers. They have nominated candidate who hides in his basement, apparently because he cannot think straight.
- The Liberal Democrat news media engages in partisan fear mongering.
- Big Tech has taken sides and is using its control over the Internet to stifle Conservatives.
- Teachers unions refuse to allow their members to work. Teachers have declared themselves nonessential workers?
We have riots over nothing. We have quarantined the entire population for a disease that is just a little more dangerous than the flu. We are fouling up our election system. We are defunding the police in our major cities, which are growing crime ridden. Our leaders have gone berserk spending taxpayer money. We are not properly educating our children. It seems we will use any excuse to increase to increase the chaos. This is the behavior of crazy people.
It is time to take a deep breath and stop panicking. We can start with the death of George Floyd. We can consider what happened to that poor man. Did the police abuse his rights? Perhaps. However, it is doubtful the police intended to kill him.
Did Floyd die because he feared the wrong thing? Did Floyd fear God? Did he seek wisdom and understanding?
Proverbs 9:10 New American Standard Bible
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding
Floyd was on a dangerous, illegal drug. That is not a trivial matter. Most people take illegal drugs as an escape. We seek an escape when we fear the wrong thing. Please read your Bibles. Instead of seeking to escape life, please seek wisdom and understanding. Do it for those you love.
