This site wants to make it very clear that what happened to George Floyd is unacceptable, and we don’t condone the behavior of the officers that day. Where the issue lies is how the country turned him into a hero and idolized this man. For what though? It seems to us that the left and all of its activist groups used George Floyd to further their agenda, twisting the narrative about him into something they could use as a reason to riot in the streets across America, become very violent, destroying businesses, burning down buildings and entire shopping areas, and causing millions of dollars in damages in their wake. Not only did they leave behind a huge mess to clean up, but they left their own and others communities without access to resources.
It’s really sad when the sickness has hold so strong that the masses idolize a man who:
Lived an unfulfilling and sorrowful life.
Didn’t leave behind any real legacy, didn’t leave a positive impact on this world, or change people’s lives for the better.
Spent 5 years in prison for a felony of assault and armed robbery.
History using and selling drugs. George Floyd’s had 5 convictions related to theft, possession, and trade of coke. Floyd was arrested five times in 20 years, his last cocaine arrest dates back in 2005.
Pretended to be a government official in uniform to gain a woman’s trust so he could forcefully enter her house and rob her, holding her at gunpoint in her stomach (many say she was pregnant?), while a group of his friends pulled up in a vehicle to help him rob the home.
Floyd served 10 months at Harris County Jail for firearm robbery in 1998.
In 2002, Floyd spent 30 days of prison for trespassing private property.
In October 2002 and in 2004 Floyd was involved in 2 more cocaine offenses resulting in eight-months and ten-months sentences in prison respectively. And then again in 2005, Floyd was arrested for cocaine and served 10 months in state jail.
This may not even be his full criminal record, but it’s enough to get the picture about this man. The day he died, he was being stopped by cops for trying to pass a $20 counterfeit bill, and toxicology reports proved a number of substances in his system.
So did George Floyd deserve a knee on his neck for nine minutes? No, absolutely not. If that is a defense move used by cops to detain someone, then fine. But why did it take over nine minutes for the cops to cuff him? It was clearly a bad judgment call by this cop and he deserves to pay the price for it. All of that aside, George Floyds past does not a hero make. He really did not deserve all the marches, multiple funerals, murals, and statues erected in his name. Bottom line is, this is effed up. Idolizing him to push an agenda is a dangerous game to play.
