Why do many people have 2 jobs?
Doesn't mean 'they' are on the take... Just need more money for whatever reason. When I was a LEO back in the late 90s, I made 7.60 an hour. That wasn't very much. Some places pay high wages but I suspect that most are still under a living wage.

the story is WHERE he was a security guard.... because you know whats REEEEEALLY good at laundering money... night clubs and strip clubs.
And having a bad cop on the payroll doesn't hurt... They were laundering and passing counterfeit bills. I keep thinking where would Floyd get two counterfeit 20s from, and why would he be so brazen to not only try and pass them off in the neighborhood by try twice at the same store.The only answer I can think of was he stole them and didn't fear the police would mess with him when he tried to pass them, but maybe Chauvin wanted to teach him a lesson of putting the business at risk and ended up murdering him instead.

Exactly right. Now they ban choke holds as if that's gonna stop the next agitated buy from using a choke hold. Democrats just don't think.

The police banned them in certain precincts. But it's not going to do anything to stop an agitated cop in a position to use one if he feels it's necessary. Words and laws can't physically stop you.

LEOs moonlight all the time in security positions to earn extra money.
Nothing unusual at all.

They can't get paid anywhere near what they make as cops. I know some cops. I know some are "on the take" so to speak. Arrest made, they find drugs and cash, the amounts found are less than what convict said was there. It happens so much more than you think. These thing go way up the ladder in almost mafia fashion. Cops don't squeal on cops.
That said a night club is the perfect distribution network. You would need a cop there to keep an eye on business. Maybe that was dirtbags officer chauvins duty there. I don't see how he would take a low pay job like that for little money
So looking at the video he is clearly trying to kill Floyd. Anyone else see corrupt cops running a ring of some kind. I am small town and it happens a lot here. Also any mention of this in media or any Minneapolis residence out there see this type of stuff.
I'm an occums razor guy. The simplest answer usually the solution. Just makes no sense to obviously kill the guy unless a reason. Floyd worked at same nightclub. Was officer chauvin sending a message to others?
Don't roast me for a conspiracy please. Just add something to conversation or examples of police crime rings we all know are out there. Its human nature
