#BREAKING| #GeorgeFloyd

"As an initial matter, let me assure you that while members of the Coalition disagree with any
restrictions on copying & distributing judicial records such as the #BWC footage, they respect the Court’s orders & were surprised by the leak"

1
Due to the leak, members of the public—including potential jurors—now have online access
to roughly 26 of the approximately 65 minutes of #BWC footage submitted to this Court by
#ThomasLane as exhibits to his Memorandum Supporting Motion to Dismiss.

2|
"As you know, even before the leak, members of the public—including potential jurors—had easy
access to bystander video showing the encounter between Mr. Floyd and the four defendants,
the transcripts of the BWC footage previously released by the Court."

Sorpresivamente, el día de ayer salieron a la luz pública una serie de vídeos de cámaras policiales corporales que muestran todo el procedimiento realizado en la detención de #GeorgeFloyd e increíblemente revelan que todo el escándalo fue una gigantesca manipulación. Abro Hilo ⬇️
El pasado 25 de mayo del 2020, George Floyd murió durante un procedimiento policial que tenía como finalidad su detención, esto ocurrió en Mineapolis (Estados Unidos) e inmediatamente los medios cubrieron la noticia como un "asesinato por abuso policial y racismo".
El procedimiento de la Policía de Mineapolis se produce debido a una denuncia de estafa, por él haber presuntamente entregado en un comercio un billete falso de $20. Todos juzgaron el acto como homicidio por abuso policial y racismo, pero los nuevos vídeos muestran otra realidad.

#GeorgeFloyd| Wait! The Trial May Be Televised!?

@AGEllison OFFICE "The State believes it is critical that the public is able to witness & observe the proceedings as they go forward in this matter of significant local, national, & international interest.

However...

1
#GeorgeFloyd DoubleSpeak? Thoughts?

"...At this time the State is concerned that live audio
& visual coverage in the courtroom may create more problems than they will solve.

Live audio & visual coverage could alter the way lawyers present evidence."

2
..."It could subject the participants in the trial to heightened media scrutiny, distracting from the #trial. Live audio and visual coverage may also be intimidating to some witnesses or impair their ability and willingness to come forward, making a fair trial more difficult.

So what’s going on? 🔥
1/15 A lot’s going on.
•Was Ngarivhume’s #July31 demo about corruption? Answer is NO.
•Why was little Zim named as one of 4 ADVERSARIES causing #GeorgeFloyd demos?
•After he was summoned by @MinisterSBMoyo wks ago, recall video Gweshegweshe released?
2/ Ngarivhume’s call for a demo echoed by likes of @ShingiMunyeza wasn’t about corruption:
•Corruption was just supposed to be the Sarajevo moment.
•Ngarivhume let it slip when he tweeted about mobilizing the church & foreign orgs to form an NTA.
3/ In framing the regime change idea, @jngarivhume:
•First queried is Zanu PF would do “the sensible thing”. He also called it “the people (western) project.
•He then located the “church” & NGOs in the creature he calls an National Transitional Authority (NTA).

Thread:
1).
So I just learned about this from my son. (I'll get back to that in a sec).

This unbelievable, immeasurable shitbag is being charged. CHARGED with felony tax evasion to the tune of $464,433.
Why am I emphasizing the word 'charged'??
2). Because this is a glaring example of some of what the people in the streets are so "Extremely" (Barr-ism) upset about.
This man, who had an incredibly violent service record including 18 official complaints on record, 2 of which resulted in disciplinary action,
3). and 3 police shootings, (one fatal), this officer, trained & trusted with the mandate to serve and protect, was still being paid by Minneapolis despite a clear pattern of violence throughout his 19 yr tenure, still drawing a paycheck on May 25th, 2020.

I want to bring it back to #BlackLivesMatterAustralia and share some of the stories/voices of the families that I'm working closely with.

There's 438 black deaths since 1991. There are so many stories you should know. #SayTheirNames
Blak deaths in custody continue at horrific rates - despite 29 years ago a Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths In Custody which set out a roadmap of why and how to prevent blak deaths. The 339 recommendations have been ignored. Read them here. austlii.edu.au/au/other/Indig…
Blak deaths in custody continue for many reasons but largely the systemic, structural & direct racism in the justice & coronial systems, lack of accountability & because we are mass incarcerated in the first place. Our mob are 28% of prisons but only 2% of the population.

#Breaking #GAGORDER LIFTED| #GeorgeFloyd

"I’m fighting a battle with 1 hand in the media," Robert Paule, #TouThao attorney.

Defense lawyers argued for opening up hearings to be televised, saying officials e.g. @GovTimWalz @Jacob_Frey made swayful public statements.
#GeorgeFloyd| The next hearing, in this case, is scheduled to take place at 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, in courtroom C-1856 at the @Hennepin Government Center.

A few more things about the #GeorgeFloyd case.

🤔o one mentions this but does #AlexanderKueng look kind of black. Doesn't he? And yet we assume this unfolded because of race. Even though they worked together.

btw, all cops have posted bail except #derekchauvin
#GeorgeFloyd Case| Alas one has to be physically present to view the #bodycam footage of e.g #Lane.
Media consortium is trying to change this but for now, exhibits are in the form of a PDF.

Here we see inside of the vehicle involved in the arrest. Fake bills? Trashy car.

@zimbo81180387 @BoddahflyIson @lackboys3 Notes for each part of the definition of genocide from the @UN on why it applies to native Black Americans

1. Killing members of the group

#GeorgeFloyd and thousands of innocents disproportionately murdered in the hands of police compared to the population, history of lynching
@zimbo81180387 @BoddahflyIson @lackboys3 @UN 2. Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group.

Our music and culture have been hijacked to make it seem like we like and glorify gang activity etc, Rap originally was music of protest, the outsiders now own rap and prisons.

nytimes.com/2020/04/04/us/…
@zimbo81180387 @BoddahflyIson @lackboys3 @UN 3. Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

Slavery + we were only given subsidies with freedom, not actual money, putting our poor in large groups. With poor, crime of necessity is highest

A megachurch in Grandville, MI showed a political propaganda video at a July 5 service blaming Democrats for the death of #GeorgeFloyd, #BlackLivesMatter, riots, and #Covid_19 (both as a hoax and for killing elderly people, somehow). It is 12 minutes of wild.

#BREAKINGNEWS: #derekchauvin Appeals #Gagorder.

I thought the gag order was for all parties involved. But it just applies to Derek.
The #georgefloyd case has already been tried in the media.
Every person has the right to innocence until proven guilty.
But that hasn't been the case. How many officials have called him a murderer?
#jacobfrey
#MitchMcConnell
#medariaarradondo
Even #BonJovi wrote a song!
#Derekchauvin has not talked to any media. If a gag order is to be put in place it should be against the state, says his legal team.

It was 2013. I was a 1st yr lawyer in DC, a world away from Ranier, MN pop: 199. I couldn’t believe the racist BS in the streets & the racist BS on Capitol Hill: it was like Natives didn’t exist. “Redskins” played in a stadium next to a Congress where paternalism still reigns.
Social media connected me to other Natives pushing for a new narrative & a movement of Native peoples who had tirelessly fought such obvious racism since the 1960s.
I met powerhouse advocates like @blackhorse_a, Suzan Harjo, @CharleneTeters, @NCARSM, @NativeCurator, @SimonMoyaSmith & started learning how to organize from badasses like Norma Renville, @LonnaKayHunter, @WeLiveNative, @johnniejae, & so many more.

REMINDER| #GeorgeFloyd said #Icantbreathe SEVERAL times because he was claustrophobic. In fact, HE asked to LAY on the GROUND.

Mark my words. This case is a shit show. Too much fkry to convict. It will be televised to OJ proportions.
"i just had #covid19, man." #GeorgeFloyd

#DerekChauvin tells him talking takes up a lot of #oxygen. And tells "speaker 13" not to come close.

Holy effin' data breach Batman, @webster with the YUGE story for @MNReformer on just how gigantic #Blueleaks really was.

I have a few points to bring up but every govt. official in MN needs to wake up to this, now.

(1/)
"Also released were personally identifying contact information for security personnel for critical infrastructure sites in Minnesota like nuclear power plants, chemical processing facilities, rail networks, pipelines, hospitals and campuses of major employers and schools."

2/
"Information on over 9,000 government and industry personnel dating back over 15 years were divulged in a breach of data from ICEFISHX, an intelligence sharing and emergency alert website..."

Yvan Benedetti, leader du groupuscule Les Nationalistes (radicaux tendance pétainistes), revendique dans une vidéo YouTube publiée ce vendredi matin la dégradation de la fresque en hommage à Adama Traoré et George Floyd à Stains (Seine-Saint-Denis)
#adamatraoré
#GeorgeFloyd
Benedetti étale dans cette vidéo son racisme, sa haine des "racailles aussi bien rouges que marrons", parle d'un "acte de salut public" et qualifié le maire de Stains de "blédard". Le tout devant une bibliothèque décorée notamment de la croix celtique des nationalistes radicaux.
Benedetti ose aussi un parallèle avec la mort de Clément Meric, jeune antifasciste tué dans une bagarrd avec des skinheads racistes.
Pour rappel, son groupe précédent "L'œuvre française", fondé par des collabos, avait été dissout suite à cette affaire.

Law enforcement told that if they see a person use the Siri shortcut “Police,” wherein saying "Hey Siri, I’m getting pulled over” starts an iPhone recording, it "may raise suspicion in a reasonable person and constitute a basis for reporting." #BlueLeaks Image
