Van Jones: George Floyd’s death puts the US system on trial

 

CNN's Van Jones says that the US justice system is on trial in the Derek Chauvin trial because if you can kneel on a someone's neck in broad daylight and not be punished, it sends a message that anyone can do it.

    1. Its not an insane world , its an insane USA . The world isn’t doing what the ” great ” USA is doing .

  1. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted”.

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  2. Chauvin was so intent on killing Floyd that he would not check his pulse and would not allow anyone to check his pulse even after a 9-minute blood choke to the neck. And when the ambulance arrived, Chauvin refused to get off Floyd. The emergency medical people had to push Chauvin off Floyd’s dead body.

  3. I remember watching this and feeling like I’d been punched in the heart and stomach.
    Over and over and over. I can still feel it-every time I hear his name. (Who’s name? ) everyone there .

    1. @Carrie See nope just a 25 year old black man did but did CNN cover that for one second? I don’t think so…

    2. “Who’s name?” You mean Tony Timpa? Killed exactly like Floyd, on camera, knee on the neck, laughing cops, the whole thing. Only difference is you don’t know about him because his tragedy doesn’t divide the country, he’s white. CNN deceives you by only showing you a small part of the picture. Become informed. Corporate news is not your friend.

    3. Carrie See – Did Floyd die because he’s black?
      Edit: For that matter do you have any inkling of the statistics related to police brutality? How they’re broken down by demographic? I’m 100% certain that you don’t. CNN does not want you to know that vital information because that information would inform you. Corporate news companies want you to be uninformed.

      cdc.org and fbi.gov The actual information is there that CNN does not want you to know about. The truth is inconvenient, it’s not sweet like the Kool-Aid that CNN serves. But it is the truth.

    4. They are bringing useless witnesses, there is a video what fucking good are witnesses? Floyd had over 3 times the fatal dose of fentanyl in his body, and the medical examiner deemed the drugs the cause of his death. Even on tape it Floyd was saying that he couldn’t breathe when he was STANDING UP!!! There was also a previous arrest Floyd had where he was saying he couldn’t breathe as well.

      Please tell me where the cop is wrong? Cops use this method to restrain people daily, it doesnt kill people. The fentanyl and his heart condition killed him…

    1. That was a fact the instant CNN made it national news and ignored the other stories involving white victims who outnumber black victims. Look it up if you don’t believe me.
      Look up Tony Timpa, Daniel Shaver, Muhammad Anwar (CNN is currently ignoring his story at this very moment).
      CNN deceives us by only showing us a very small part of the picture. That’s all it takes to lead uninformed people to believe the exact opposite of the truth.

    2. yet… the capital riot insurrectionist traitors walked out the door they tore open with cops patting them on the back and smiling and laughing

    3. If these black supremacists riot outside of those cowardly liberal cities like they did last year they will get a taste of armed middle America

  4. I am neither American nor Black but watching George Floyd video moved me to tears. All the time I was thinking how can an apparently sane human being hate another just because of his complexion, to the point of wanting to kill him

    1. How did it move you to tears? They are bringing useless witnesses, there is a video what fucking good are witnesses? Floyd had over 3 times the fatal dose of fentanyl in his body, and the medical examiner deemed the drugs the cause of his death.

  5. Remember, George Floyd’s murder was witnessed around the world!! There have been protests about this all over the globe.

    1. They are bringing useless witnesses, there is a video what fucking good are witnesses?

  6. when you see a person die in such a careless way, and the policeman has no feelings , it made me cry all over again.

    1. They are bringing useless witnesses, there is a video what fucking good are witnesses?

  7. What a horrible way to die I’m really afraid of the fact that if this police officer by some kind of Miracle gets off this trial they’re going to have a lot of riots up there in America it’s going to be crazy

    1. He will walk unless he is made an example of. 6 independent doctors have said that Floyd died of an Overdose. None, other than the paid doctor says that it was the cop. It is cut and dry case, but politics trump science in 2021

    2. They are bringing useless witnesses, there is a video what fucking good are witnesses? Floyd had over 3 times the fatal dose of fentanyl in his body, and the medical examiner deemed the drugs the cause of his death.

  8. So well said, Van. I sincerely appreciate how you fleshed out not only your personal perspective, but within historical context (as a fellow ’68-er).

  9. Bottom line is George might have been under the influence, but he would have been high but still breathing. WTH?

  10. The “officer” in question never once looked away as George died. He just sat there on his neck relishing the moment watching the light fade from this eyes and then continued to hold him there to make sure he finished the job. I bet he was hard the whole time. A true psychopath. How can you possibly explain that away? How can you or anyone feel he was justified in his actions?
