If you think the video of George Floyd is disturbing, take the time to watch this. I bet none of you have ever heard of Tony Timpa. I hadn't...and I should have. We all should have. He was killed in the same fashion as Floyd. Why was change not implemented by the administration in 2016 as promised?

Where was the march?
Where was the outrage?
Where was the justice for this man who did nothing?
Charges were dropped against the police....

Link

Video has finally been obtained and was released in July of 2019. This happened in 2016. He called 911 and said he suffered from depression and schizophrenia and was off his meds. Cops came out.

An autopsy ruled Timpa's cause of death was a homicide, sudden cardiac death due to "the toxic effects of coc aine and the stress associated with physical restraint." Sound familiar....

No street named after him.
No Home Depots burnt down.
No calls for change.
No presidents saying he could be their son

Grand Jury bought up charges that were later dismissed. The judge stated...


Creuzot previously told The News that he met with "all three medical examiners" who had testified to the grand jury. They reportedly told him they did not believe the officers acted recklessly and "cannot, and will not, testify to the elements of the indictment beyond a reasonable doubt."


Same type of case but here we see one man glorified in death and the other.well, nothing. No road or park named after him. No t-shirts. No politicians at his funeral. Wonder why that is...any guesses????

Still argue that police discriminate and are racially driven? That they proportionally only go after those of color. One of the cops that stood by as Tony died was black so does that make it a racist hate crime? They called for that with Floyd so why not?

A good lawyer will use this against Ellison and his team. I would.

So this November when the charges are dropped a few days after Trump is re-elected I hope you are all ready because if you think the last 2 weeks have been bad we have seen nothing as a nation yet.

They do. In court. That is how they got the video released.

That's not protesting, but I do agree that it is not racially motivated. Something still needs to be done to stop it though.

That is the point. I am proving hypocrisy not only in the reaction but the solution. So tell me how slashing police budgets is going to help educate police to be better at their jobs. Because that is the solution of the mayor of LA and many others across the US.

Where was the outrage?


You’re seeing it. What’s happening is the result of a long line of police wrongfully killing people. If you think all of this is over one mans death, you’re misunderstanding what this is.

No, the riots and "protests" going on presently are entirely focused on skin color and not police brutality.

What BS lol.

"The rest of us"?

You and I agree on next to nothing.
So how do you and I "completely understand" this?

Oh you mean YOU believe you understand but to make it sound safer to yourself, you assume that we all agreed with you in some secret poll?

Hahahaha

I'll tell you what it's really about.

Trump is President still!

They're willing to burn the country down and blame it on him.

It's so well orchestrated and executed that I'd even suggest Trump is a Patsy by Design.

Like 6 years ago it was decided in a dark room that Trump would beat Hillary and they planned each failing attack to impeach him so it'd successfully divide everyone 50-50 and continually build tension.

Then after the failures mounted they'd be so frustrated mass violence would ensue and Trump would react and they'd keep blaming him.

And soon we'll all be shooting each other in the streets.

This is because America and it's Liberty stand completely in the way of what the elites really want - complete total global hegemony.

So they'll do whatever it takes to get it. All the slaves play into this ignorantly, believing themselves to be Woke when in reality they ARE the Zombie in it's fully realized form. Utterly braindead, running thru the streets for blood, mindless and robotic.

Tools, they get used then tossed away.

So what about David Dorn?

I'll let you all go Google his name..I won't put a link, your should go look it up and think a bit..
If you're going to really be behind injustice and the BLM cause then this man should be at the forefront of these protests not a person who had been a life long criminal..pistol whipping a pregnant woman is disgusting...
DAVID DORN
No one seems to know this man's name and that's unacceptable and quite frankly disgusting.
If you're going to rally around a cause pick a good one and an honorable one.
The virtue signaling is sickining IMHO.
His life mattered too.. He did nothing but help people his whole freaking life. Where are the protests for his name.. His memory his contribution hu?
Flavor of the day..the next Twitter cause... Etc etc
And by the way.. Protesting during a pandemic is the stupidest thing and most irresponsible thing anyone anywhere should be doing at this point.

I just can not understand society these days or the people not using their heads..

Because White people don't lose their collective snip over a white person dying.

A tale of two 'races'.

So in your title you said this case is important to Floyd’s case but nowhere in you OP do you explain how a case in Dallas is going to be important to a case in Minneapolis, other than because cops killed a white guy in a similar manner in a completely different state it somehow means there’s no discrimination angle to this case? Which is entirely irrelevant since Floyd’s killer isn’t charged with being racist, he’s charged with murder.

And a white guy being killed the same way Floyd was doesn’t really have anything to do with whether Floyd’s killer is racist or not. Maybe he is, maybe he’s not, but either way he’s not charged with being a racist so....kind of a fallacious argument.

The "rest of us" don't include you. We ALL know this was race-based initially, police brutality was secondary. It should have been solely about a dirty cop that didn't like the man he was holding down but it wasn't. It was a call to arms for the BLM movement that was corrupted by the Antifa terrorists.

The black community got tricked by their string holders to make it about race. They had the whole country behind them to demand better from their politicians/law enforcement and blew it. Instead of taking their demands to those whom they voted for, they instead threw a tantrum and thought that by destroying property and committing acts of violence that they would solve their grievance.

Meanwhile the politicians whom they voted for are sitting in their mansions walking away scott free while putting the blame on the police department in which they sit at the top.

I had heard about Tony Timpa. It's worth asking why some cases are ignored and others hyper-reported. But all these other cases confirm is that it's a policing problem for everyone.

We should ALL be concerned about what happened to George Floyd because it can happen to any of us. If George Floyd's life didn't matter to police... and Tony Timpa's life didn't matter to police... then no one's life matters to police except their own.

The only racial point to be made is that any/all racism involved is only a part of the BIG problem.

Ok let's not go to far off the rocker there. Dorn would still be alive if it wasn't for the riots, but point taken. I think the hypocrisy that happens time and time again is that good upstanding black men and women die by either biased cops, black on black violence, or due to preventable circumstances everyday. Those people don't get a second look. Along comes a black person with a shady past or getting caught doing something shady (Trayvon walking around with a screwdriver in a neighborhood that has had an up tic of home break-ins, Michael Brown stealing and assaulting a store clerk, and now Floyd with his background and passing around counterfeit money) they have to become black saints.

There's something toxic in black culture that allowing this to happen. It would seem that unless black people address their own issues nobody will be able to address them. Where I live we had a woman named Charleena Lyles. She called the police to report a break-in at her apartment. When the police got to her place to talk she ended up dead, shot to death in front of her own kid. Oh the outrage, oh the turmoil it created, this pure injustice of this whole mess, but wait let's look at the facts.

Charleena Lyles had a history of being mentally unstable, in fact she had even told a judge that they could go to hell when the judge offered to drop charges against her if she would see mental help. She had even tried to attack the police in the past. So what was going on, well the day the cops showed up they even noted that she could be faking the call and might attack one or both of the police officers that went to the call. Charleena Lyles was in fact planning to stab both cops to death in front of her own kid.

Every black activist in the area had to highlight how Charleena Lyles was the victim of the situation, and it was in fact the problem with the racist police that caused her death. In the mean time a black Vietnam Vet was stabbed to death by a group of teens, but nobody took notice to him. Why, was it because the Vet wasn't sympathetic enough for the pushed narrative, or was it that the idea of killing the police a more black thing to do?

If a successful black man dies due to a violent encounter with anyone nobody gives a crap, but if it's a poor old black folk then the world better stand the "F" by. It's a toxic situation that is constantly pushed in the black community. How many times do you hear a black person say that if they can't do well in sports, then they can't get out of the ghettos? Black students have access to more science and engineering scholarships then any other race, and most of those scholarships go unused. Could it be that they come from broken homes? No since many races have the same issues. So then what is it, why is it that the good black person is a dead one that can be easily exploited? There's your answer.

Black people need to sit down and quit blaming and start solving the issues in their culture since they sure in the hell don't want help from other groups of people. I know not every single black person is like that (I know this since I hang out with a lot of black people that don't think like that), but there is enough out there that makes exploiting them too easy for others to do. Why do they target black people more than any other race? According to a friend of mine, "just look at me". Black people are kind of easy to spot most of the time due to their skin pigmentation. Kind of makes it easy to target someone if you don't have to look for something that makes them different. That's why it's always Black vs White, how often do you hear about Asian vs Hispanics, Middle Eastern vs Polynesians, but those groups also have issues with one another. It's because it's too easy to target Black vs White that's why.

Dorn was most likely killed by black rioters, in the video of him laying dead in the sidewalk he was robbed by blacks, and I bet that's why nobody in the media wants to talk about it. All Dorn is to them is a successful Black man killed by less successful Blacks. A complete non-story that can't be exploited for anything.

say what dude? care to elaborate?

did you watch the clip?

so a white man killed by the police and no protest, a black man gets killed by the police and then you get protests hijacked by thugs like antifa, businesses shut down, looting, killing, burning and all that stuff and you're ok with it because it was about a black guy? racist much?
