During this sad time as we all grieve over the loss of George Floyd, especially when some of us don’t even know him, we are all however familiar with many of the misdealings of our local cops.
This so called “seat belt” meneuver that the officer used on the late Mr. Floyd, I can honestly, under oath say has NEVER been taught in /or as a restraining hold technque in any P.O.S.T. Training Academy, because I myself have been through p.o.s.t. and nothing like that would even be considered due to the consequences which have befallen on the now late Mr. Floyd. Officers are only taught restraining holds in pivotal areas and should the neck area become involved, it is only for a few seconds in order to lower an assalent down to the ground and prepare for cuffing and usually involved more than one or more officers.
This is a complete tragady. It only breaks down the trust factor that we as society have in our law enforcement. They don’t see us as people any more. They see us as just something in their way during the day interfering with them getting back to what ever they were doing and that paycheck they don’t deserve.
And as for repremandation, I’m sure that the officer involved will NEVER see the inside of a prison cell, because even after all his write ups and misconducts, he was still out patrolling our streets.
If this article doesn’t stop and make you think about anything and you try to push the negative out of your mind … just remember this…
Blue WILL ALWAYS PROTECT Blue… So for the family of the late Mr Floyd,I am more than on your side and you and yours will be in our prayers.
Though, this has come to a tragic ending, I do strongly believe in karma and have seen it work with my own two eye. So, it is true when they say what goes around comes around and every dog will have it’s day!
