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

Published

on

 

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.

Lil Uzi Vert Has $24 Million Diamond Installed In His Head

Published

on

 

The rapper Lil Uzi Vert has recently had a $24 million diamond surgically installed into his forehead. The rapper has reportedly been saving for the strange body modification for the past three years.

He told reporters that the diamond costs more than his home and all of his cars put together. Oddly enough, the diamond could cost more than his entire net worth, which has been estimated at no higher than $16 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Lil Uzi gained initial recognition following the release of the commercial mixtape Luv Is Rage in 2015, which led to a recording contract with Atlantic Records.

The rapper attracted mainstream attention following the release of his debut single “Money Longer” in 2016. After releasing two additional mixtapes in 2016 and 2017, including one in collaboration with Gucci Mane, Lil Uzi Vert was featured on the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping Migos’ single “Bad and Boujee”. He later secured his first top ten single with “XO Tour Llif3”, which won the MTV Video Music Award for Song of Summer.

At the 2018 Grammy Awards, Lil Uzi Vert was nominated for Best New Artist. His second studio album, Eternal Atake was among the most anticipated albums in 2o20 and peaked at number one on the Billboard 200.

Some fans noticed that the diamond seemed to be loose and off-center, but Uzi clarified that it is only like that temporarily because there is still swelling in the area.

“It’s in the middle. I just got a long bar in it because I just got it pierced. When the swelling go down I’ll get a short bar so it won’t move. Y’all keep talking about it off because I got a long bar in it so it can move ’cause of the swelling. When it go down, it gonna be right though,” he said in the video below.

Photos Show Epstein Cuddling With Young Girl On Private Jet

Published

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.

Nancy Pelosi Reelected As House Speaker In Narrow Vote

Published

on

 

Nancy Pelosi won another term as Speaker of the House of Representatives on Sunday, after a narrow vote.

80-year-old Pelosi will hold the position for a second consecutive two-year term and fourth overall, having previously been elected in 2007, 2009 and 2019.

Pelosi has served as a US representative from California since 1987. A member of the Democratic Party, she is the only woman in U.S. history to serve as Speaker and, until the inauguration of Kamala Harris as Vice President, is the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history.

As House speaker, Pelosi is second in the presidential line of succession, after the vice president.

During her first speakership, she was instrumental in the passage of many of the Obama administration’s landmark bills, including the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the 2010 Tax Relief Act.

Pelosi lost the speakership in 2011 after the Republican Party won a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections.

She retained her role as leader of the House Democratic Caucus and returned to the role of House minority leader. In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats regained control of the House.

When the 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, Pelosi was again elected speaker, becoming the first former speaker to return to the post since Sam Rayburn in 1955.

Under Pelosi’s leadership, the House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump on December 18, 2019.

Despite supporting the $2000 checks for struggling Americans, Pelosi, along with everyone in congress have provoked anger from citizens who see them as being out of touch with the average people.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) estimated in 2009 that Pelosi’s average net worth was $58 million which ranks her 13th among 25 wealthiest members of Congress.

Roll Call said Pelosi’s earnings are connected to her husband’s heavy investments in stocks that include Apple, Disney, Comcast, and Facebook. Roll Call reported that the Pelosis have $13.46 million in liabilities including mortgages on seven properties.

According to Roll Call, Pelosi and her husband hold properties “worth at least $14.65 million, including a St. Helena vineyard in Napa Valley worth at least $5 million, and commercial real estate in San Francisco”.
