    He had a rap sheet longer than your forearm. A useless piece of human garbage.

    None.

    He was arrested – but not charged, let alone tried and convicted. 

    Even in USA you are innocent until found guilty.

    What happen was he made the police scared of him which cause them to treat him as a savage animal......for what happen when they tried to place him in the car we will never know......we just saw the before and the end results....

    He had been shopping at a convenience store and the store clerk called the cops on him because he had allegedly passed a counterfeit bill.  But the store owner said that Floyd might not even have been aware it was counterfeit, that he might have gotten a counterfeit bill from someone and then passed it on unknowingly.

    This is one of the core issues of the Black Lives Matter movement: that the violence visited on these people is often out of all proportion to the alleged crimes they're being investigated for.  This guy who was killed several months ago in Colorado was stopped by the cops because he was wearing a ski mask during warm weather, something which is odd but not criminal.  Eric Garner, who was strangled to death by a cop a few years ago, was being arrested for selling bootleg cigarettes on the streetcorner.  These guys aren't, by and large, murderers, rapists, or violent criminals for whom we think lethal violence might be justified.  Instead they're people who have been accused of committing very minor crimes.

    He was a suspect ... that's not a crime.

    John- Learn how the law works you ignorant __. People are innocent until proven guilty. They get charged, then if convicted, it was officially a crime they committed. The cop who knelt the life out of a handcuffed man was judge, jury and executioner. You reek of the same kind of evil. You think your opinion is so special, it sickens me.

    Two that I know of, threatening a pregnant woman with a gun and passing a counterfeit 20 dollar bill. Counterfeiting is Death, written on all Continental Currency. Continental Currency was printed during the American Revolution. Counterfeiting was a big problem back then.

    He fit the description of somebody who used a fake $20 bill to buy something.
