They Convicted an Innocent Man – Paul Craig Roberts

Tuesday afternoon, a jury convicted former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin of three counts of murder and manslaughter of George Floyd.  Former Assistant Treasury Secretary and award winning journalist Dr. Paul Craig Roberts (PCR) says, “This was a show trial essentially. . . .  Chauvin did not have a fair trial. . . . The media convicted an innocent man, and the jury was too fearful to stand on the evidence, and that was the story of the trial.”

PCR points out, “At the trial, the bloodwork showed that George Floyd had three times the fatal dose of Fentanyl.  There was also evidence given that Fentanyl causes breathing problems.  In fact, an overdose stops you from breathing and kills you.  It also came out that Floyd had breathing problems before he was restrained on the ground.  Police videos showed Floyd was complaining about breathing when he was sitting in back of the squad car, and he asked to get out.  The most surprising thing was the police video of Floyd being restrained showed that Officer Chauvin’s knee was not on Floyd’s neck, it was on his shoulder blade. . . . The video the media showed over and over again had ‘camera perspective bias.’  So, how you see something is what the camera perspective is. . . . The Chief of Police, who had already condemned Chauvin for having his knee on Floyd’s neck, when he saw the body cam video (from the police perspective), he was then asked on the stand what his opinion was, and he said he had not seen that.  He also said Chauvin’s knee was on the shoulder blade of Floyd.”

The mainstream media never showed that video from the police perspective that shows Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s shoulder blade.  According to PCR, “There was an abundance of evidence that there was at least reasonable doubt that Office Chauvin was not guilty of the charges. . . . So, why did they (the jury) convict?  I think fear. . . . If you were on that jury and there was a mistrial or a verdict of not guilty, you knew your name would be leaked out and they would reveal who you are and Antifa and Black Lives Matter would be on your lawn threatening your life. . . . You knew you would face threats, and your house may be burned down.”

PCR says mainstream media tried Chauvin in public, and he was “never going to get a fair trial” no matter where it was conducted.  PCR sums up the trial and the outcome by saying, “It was a situation where the evidence could not matter.  The evidence had already been established by the media with ‘camera perspective bias’ the media showed for weeks and months, and the whole world was convinced that Chauvin killed Floyd with his knee on his neck. . . . This was a false fact, but it was far more powerful than the evidence in the courtroom.”

After yesterday, if you are a white officer working in a blue city, which is predominately black you are going to get what you deserve. You would have to be an abject fool to stay on the force.

I’m about as far right as you can get….but on this I call B.S. to PCR. I watched all the videos …..many times…did Floyd resist…yes. After anyone is handcuffed and on their stomach the threat is mostly controlled. Chauvin used punitive force, in my opinion, for an unusually long time . Chauvin is guilty as charged and luckily most cops don’t think or act like he did. For police to ” protect and serve” they can’t let their emotions take control…it’s just part of their job.

I disagree, most cops DO think and act like “he did.”

Yes, because you ‘know’ most cops. Or that is what the gurus of the internet told me!

Floyd would be alive if he didn’t think he was above the law. He was a criminal. He was also a con he knew how to play the system and elicit sympathy. He was playing to the camera. Had he complied he would have lived to continue being a pain in the ass to society. Officer Chauvin fought and grappled with Floyd for quite a while and he was probably played out; catching his breath trying to regain his own composure. He was only restraining a criminal much larger than he so as to NOT be put in a position of vulnerability again. He was controlling a volatile situation. A career criminal’s family is given millions of dollars and a police officer faces bankruptcy and prison. No, that is not justice.

Ack Ack,
Don’t forget Lavoy Finicum, Jesse Gurerna, Jack Yantis, Mrs. Weaver and her son Sammy and David Koresh and the Branch Davidians and many others.
Never forget that the badged orcs and orcettes at ALL levels, local, state and federal only exist to do the bidding of their criminal parasitic bosses, and those bosses, especially at the federal level (congress, senate, scrotus, and PINOUS*) are only essentially ‘corporate employees’ to the REAL owners of America -- the Globalist -pedo Rothschilds and their related tribal ilk..and they HATE white people/white civilization (read Maurice Samuels, “You Gentiles!” for a fuller understanding of this).
*PINOUS -- pResident In Name Only United States
As George Carlin said, “It’s a BIG club -- and you AREN’T in it!!”
To them, all of us are nothing more than a renewable disposable resource; either tax helot cattle or cannon fodder to expend in their globalist dominance efforts…
“The Greater Yinon Plan” anyone….and don’t even get me started on how they, through their spy/assassination organization called mossad WERE responsible for bringing all three towers down in NYC (yes it WAS controlled demolition -- NOT 3 airliners hitting just two of them).
That’s exactly how the Globalist Banksters want it..and they want all the various badged orcs and orcettes to keep it that way!
Besides, if one IS against a corrupt and obviously evil gov, one CANNOT at the same time ‘support’ the enforcement elements of that same corrupt gov..it’s an insane contradiction to attempt to do so.
