Full Body Camera Footage From George Floyd Killing Leaked To The Press

The body camera footage from the entire encounter that George Floyd had with police leading up to his death was released today, and the video is extremely upsetting. The footage is taken from the body cameras of Officer Alex Kueng and Officer Thomas Lane, who were the first to officers to arrive on the scene, after a local business called police to report that Floyd had attempted to purchase a few items with a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill. A judge had previously ruled that these recordings should not be made public until the trials are over, but they were leaked to The Daily Mail by someone involved with the case.

From the moment that police began interacting with Floyd, he is completely compliant and not aggressive in any way. It is obvious that he is terrified of the police, and he had good reason to be afraid. The first officer that approached him immediately pointed a gun at his head for not rolling down his window fast enough.

Floyd tried his best to deescalate the situation, begging the officer not to shoot him and apologizing to him for not responding fast enough. The officer was not calmed by Floyd’s apologies, and quickly escalated the situation, shouting, “Put your f***ing hands up right now! Let me see your other hand.”

Floyd froze in terror and the officer became more aggressive.

‘Put your f***ing hand up there. Jesus Christ, keep your f**king hands on the wheel,” he shouted.

Floyd tried to explain that he had been shot before, which is why he was so nervous.

“Keep your f***ing hands on the wheel,” Officer Lane shouted again, ignoring Floyd’s plea for compassion.

 “Hands on top of your head. Step out of the vehicle and step away from me,” the officer ordered.

“Okay. Mr. Officer, please don’t shoot me. Please man,” Floyd pleaded.

“I’m not going to shoot you. Step out and face away,” the officer assured him.

Floyd stepped out of the car as he was ordered to and then he was handcuffed.

Officer Lane asked the passengers why Floyd was acting so nervous, and they explained that he was shot by police in the past and suffers from mental problems as a result. Floyd told the officers that he had been shot and that he had anxiety. The officers were unimpressed by the explanation and insisted that everyone is expected to follow orders when they come from a police officer, regardless of their mental health.

Floyd may have been slow to cooperate because he was so afraid of what the cops would do to him, or afraid of being locked up, but he did not show any signs of aggression or make any attempt to get away at any point in the interaction. However, when they got to the police car, Floyd began to object to being arrested and began begging and pleading with the officers to not put him in the car, explaining that he is claustrophobic and just had COVID. The police became more aggressive when he refused to get in the car and fell to the ground.

“Stand up. Stop falling down, Stay on your feet and face the car door!” one of the officers shouted.

Floyd continued begging and pleading for his life.

‘Y’all, I am going to die in here. I’m going to die, man. I just had COVID, man. I don’t want to go back to that. I’m scared as f**k,” he said.

They appeared to get him in the car for a moment, but for some reason that is not clear from the video, he ended up on the ground on the other side of the vehicle. That is when Officer Chauvin placed his knee on Floyd’s neck, where it remained for over 8 minutes. The whole time, Floyd continued to plead for his life, and explain that they were killing him, but they didn’t take him seriously.

‘Tell my kids I love them. I’m dead,” he said at one point in the video before taking his last breath.

“I’ll probably just die this way. I’m through. I’m claustrophobic. My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Everything hurts. I need some water or something, please,” he said.

At one point, Lane expressed a bit of concern about the situation and asked if they should roll him over, but Chauvin told him “No, he’s staying where we’ve got him.”

The officers then begin to discuss whether or not they thought that he was on drugs. Officer Lane suggested that they found a “weed pipe” in Floyd’s car, which meant that perhaps, “There might be something else, there might be like PCP or something.”

As Floyd was telling Chauvin that he couldn’t breathe, the officer told him, ‘Then stop talking. Stop yelling. It takes a heck of a lot of oxygen to talk.”

Sadly, Floyd was dead just a few seconds later.

The defense attorneys for the officers who were charged with the killing will argue that they were justified because Floyd was not immediately obedient, and because he begged the officers not to hurt or arrest him. Passing off a fake twenty-dollar bill should not be an offense that lands someone in handcuffs, so he had every right to plead and protest with the officers about getting arrested over such a petty offense. Furthermore, people with mental illness, especially those with post-traumatic stress disorder from previous police encounters, can’t be expected to step in line like a soldier every time a cop barks a command at them. This video shows how police are entirely unequipped to deal with people who have a mental illness or other considerations that may prevent them from being as obedient as some officers demand.

Photos Show Epstein Cuddling With Young Girl On Private Jet

New photos that were recently obtained by journalists at The Daily Mail show Jeffrey Epstein cuddling with a sleeping young girl. The photos are said to have been taken on Epstein’s notorious private jet. The late billionaire pedophile reportedly took the girl to Disney World and was returning home with her when the photos were taken.

The most disturbing image shows Epstein sitting in his airplane with the young girl laying on top of his lap. Other photos showed the group’s trip to Disney World, where Epstein, the young girl, and others were seen posing with Disney characters like “Piglet” from “Winnie The Pooh.”

The young girl in the photos has not been identified, and it is not clear if she was one of Epstein’s victims, but the images certainly paint an ugly picture.

The Disney trip reportedly took place in 2004, which was a few years before he was first arrested. However, many victims say that his abusive behavior goes back far earlier than 2004.

Epstein’s associate and one-time girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell is also believed to have been on the trip, although she does not appear in any of the photos. Some of the faces on the photos are blurred out.

A source who was on the trip said, “It was a fun day. We ate in a restaurant with two of Jeffrey’s friends who he met there. Jeffrey however did not eat lunch. I hardly ever saw him eat at a restaurant. Food always had to be prepared by a personal chef.”

The source also said that Epstein and his entourage had full VIP access to the theme park and never had to wait in any lines.

“We were given a VIP tour of the park and someone was escorting us around from ride to ride. The group never had to be in line for a ride or a rollercoaster, we went to the front of the line each time,” the source told the Mail.

The source also claimed that the photo was innocent, despite how bad it looks in the context of what we now know about Epstein.

“It had been a long day and the girl just fell asleep in his arms. The picture is terrifying based upon what we know now but it was entirely innocent,” the source said.

Epstein reportedly flew about ten other people to Disney World for the Trip, including Ghislaine Maxwell, his personal assistant Sarah Kellen and Slovakian model Nadia Marcinkova.

New details about Epstein’s crimes and his associates are expected to be revealed during the upcoming criminal trial against Ghislaine Maxwell. Epstein and Maxwell were connected with major players on both sides of the political spectrum who have a lot to lose if Maxwell discusses their involvement with Epstein’s criminal network. With how many people that Epstein was connected to there is no telling what can be revealed in the upcoming trial.

Epstein allegedly died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. Epstein’s lawyers have disputed the ruling, and there has been significant public skepticism about the true cause of his death.

Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Were Released In Florida

Published

Environmentalist groups have been warning about the danger of releasing genetically modified mosquitoes into the wild for years, but a plan to release the GM insects in the United States for the first time is scheduled to continue as planned.

Millions of GM mosquitoes will be released in the Florida Keys as a part of a pilot program that officials hope will reduce the spread of diseases like dengue, yellow fever, and the Zika virus.

The unprecedented release is being orchestrated by the British-based biotechnology firm Oxitec, and the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District (FKMCD), according to Reuters.

The project hopes to reduce the prevalence of the Aedes aegypti species, which is responsible for spreading many infections diseases.

On May 1st, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted an experimental use permit to Oxitecon for the release of the mosquitoes.

While regulators have signed off on the program and are confident of its safety, local residents are obviously very concerned about these insects being released in their back yards.

The plan has already been set into motion, and some of the insects have already been released. Oxitec opened about 6 boxes containing the OX5034 modified mosquito in the Florida Keys last week.

In theory, these genetically modified male mosquitos will mate with wild females, and their genetics will cause the children to die, which they hope will lead to a total collapse of the wild population.

However, there are also many different things that can go wrong with this type of live experiment, and there is growing concern among scientists that this technology may not be ready for deployment. Many experts have also suggested that the risks have not been studied thoroughly enough. Some scientists are warning about the potential unintended consequences that can come from unleashing such insects into the wild. For example, researchers are entirely unaware of what type of allergic reactions that these insects could cause if they interact with people.

Meredith Fensom, Oxitec’s head of global public affairs, told Reuters about the release.

“Inside we have a small container, and this is what we put the mosquito eggs in. We also have a small container for food. We leave it open. And then we fill the box, less than halfway full, with water. We close the lid, and after a week or two, our non-biting male mosquitoes begin to emerge,” she said.

These boxes contained roughly 12,000 mosquitoes, but the Oxitec says that they plan to release tens of millions of these incects in the region throughout the year.

This is not the first time that the company has released GM mosquitoes into the wild, this is just the first time that it has been done in the United States. Oxitec has previously launched similar projects in places like Brazil, Panama, the Cayman Islands and Malaysia, where they claim to have a success rate of over 90%.

The mosquitoes have also been designed to emit a fluorescent glow, so that when they are captured.

“That’s how we monitor for the project before, during and after to understand the mosquito population,” Fensom explained.

However, many experts disagree with the plan and have made attempts to organize against this strange use of genetic technology.

Bill Gates’ Relationship With Epstein Led To His Divorce

According to a shocking report published this week in the Wall Street Journal, Melinda Gates began meeting with divorce lawyers in October of 2019, which is around the same time that Bill Gates was listed among Jeffrey Epstein’s close associates.

According to sources close to the Gates family that were interviewed by the Journal, and documents shared with the site, Melinda said that her marriage with Bill was “irretrievably broken.”

The divorce was set into motion immediately after Bill Gates was implicated as a close friend of Epstein. In reports at the time, it was noted that Gates began his relationship with the notorious pedophile after he was already convicted of crimes against children.

However, Bill’s friendship with Epstein was a source of contention in his marriage long before his wife filed for divorce. In fact, she warned him not to associate with Epstein due to his notorious reputation and criminal convictions, an employee of the Gates Foundation told The Daily Beast. Despite this warning, Bill and some of his employees at the foundation continued to meet with Epstein.

When asked for a comment, a spokesman for Bill Gates told the Journal that he denied being friends with the late pedophile, referring to a statement he gave the paper last year saying that, “I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him.”

When pressed by other reporters about the relationship, Gates said that his proximity to Epstein was only a result of them both being so rich.

A statement that Bill and Melinda Gates made on Twitter last week made no mention of Epstein, and instead painted the picture of a professional couple breaking up on amicable terms.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage. We have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives,” the statement read.

The couple has been married since 1994 and there was reportedly no prenuptial agreement to decide the terms of their divorce. They have agreed to equally split their assets, although they are claiming that they will give much of the money away. They have made no public comments as to the private reasons behind their divorce, but the timing of the filing is certainly suspicious, and many people close to the family suspect that Bill’s connection to Epstein could have been a factor.

According to prosecutors, Epstein operated a “vast network” for child human trafficking between 2002 and 2005, which allowed him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls.” Many long-time friends like Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and Prince Andrew have been implicated in Epstein’s illicit activities.

Epstein was arrested a second time on July 6, 2019, on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York. He died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. Epstein’s lawyers have disputed the ruling, and there has been significant public skepticism about the true cause of his death.
