THREAD - Democrats, do not take PoC for granted:

Hey left and liberals (not the same thing), you don’t get off that easy either.

#GeorgeFloydMurder was by Minneapolis police. Minneapolis has had a Democratic mayor for the past 42 years (my entire lifespan).
Not a single Republican was elected to the city this century. The mayor appoints the police chief & budget. You have had total control over most of the city’s political & social culture for over 4 decades. Any systemic racism there specifically was under your watch.
I know you’re keen for this to all be about President Trump, but minorities are not pawns in your power plays. I do not need you to tell me about historic injustice, systemic racism & power structures, I navigate this war every day. My weary 42 yr old mind & body bear its scars

🚨BREAKING: Official autopsy report finds #GeorgeFloyd had #coronavirus. Hennepin County Medical Examiner's full report says he tested positive April 3. Wow. Every crisis in America is intersecting! #covid19
Confirmed here: postmortem nasal swab was taken, which confirmed that Floyd was positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It is noted that Floyd was known to be positive for COVID-19 on April 3. kstp.com/news/george-fl…
3) The postmortem positivity likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent PCR positivity from previous infection, the report said.

“pulmonary vascular tree is free of thromboemboli. The tracheobronchial tree is free of blood, edema fluid, or foreign material” ➡️ likely recovered

To those who say the UK isn't as bad as the US, a short thread on a personal experience of #racism in the justice system.

Waiting at a Crown Court (out of London) for my trial to be called on - the trial ahead is delayed. 3 black males walk out of court and sit opposite me.
The males had been in the public gallery (ie watching proceedings, not defendants) are impeccably behaved and appropriately dressed for a court building. 2 appear to be together, 1 is set apart from the others and says good morning to me which is why i notice them.
Enquire from usher why the trial ahead is delayed. "A juror has complained that she feels intimidated by the defendant's gang". Assume the case is gang related - no, no, it's a drugs case and the "gang" is the 3 lads now sat outside court

⚠️AUTOPSY REPORT MAYBE MISLEADING on #GeorgeFloyd death. “Combination of force & health problems contributed to death” muddies the cause. Often usually “multiple causes of death” codes assigned to a death. But there is also a single “UNDERLYING CAUSE OF DEATH”. What is UCD? 🧵
2) The underlying cause-of-death is defined as: as "the disease or injury which initiated the train of events leading directly to death, or the circumstances of the accident or violence which produced the fatal injury.”

➡️ UCD is considered the most important...
3) George Floyd may have had heart disease but the chance he would die naturally of it in any given 9 min span was slim to nil. The trigger event was the officer kneeling on top of him for 9 min. The trigger is the key UCD cause, not the lack of blood flow or heart condition.

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

I want to be crystal clear here... the Dayton police got violent first. As some protesters tried to outflank the line of bike cops, this officer, armed with a paintball gun, began firing on people.
The police then donned gas masks and began threatening to disperse the crowd violently. I saw water splashed from a water bottle above the frontline before the first wide spread use of pepper spray. The only injured cop I saw was suffering from the effects of their own spray.
After a few minutes, a Dayton police cruiser drove into the back of the crowd and began forcing its way towards the line. The driver nearly hit several marchers, and several water bottles were thrown at the car, not at the officers in the line.

Thread: After covering civil unrest from US embassies in other countries, it has been sad to see past 72 hours. In trying to make sense of it all, here are things that I would have likely covered in a cable on #riots2020 #GeorgeFloydMurder
2 -The murder of #georgefloyd appears to be a Mohammad Bouazizi-type trigger that has affected the majority of the country and unleashed pent up anger from a significant portion of the populous.
3- It would be a mistake to discount those on streets to a small segment, grouping, or insignificant. The size, scale, & daring nature in almost ever major city highlight the level of anger. Also important to note it is taking place during pandemic-quarantine in most cities.

This is an excellent thread on positional asphyxia, meaning how you can die from lack of oxygen while laying on your stomach without signs of strangulation/airway damage on autopsy. #GeorgeFloydMurder
The police clearly KNOW about positional asphyxia because here is an article on it in a police magazine policemag.com/524139/how-to-…
That autopsy report would have sounded totally different if it said positional asphyxia due to restraint by police. It doesn’t matter about any pre existing conditions, I mean no one ever mentions those with death due to a gunshot.

Firstly, what sparked me to write everything down and start a thread, was the creepy clip of 'paramedics' taking (dragging) the body away...

It's a particularly gruesome part of the video... just a heads up #patriots

Several things already wrong with this...
- No CPR or attempt of FA
- Doesn't check for pulse, ever
- Make-up the gurney street-side
- Put a sheet on the floor w/out ever checking patient
- He wipes something off his head and rubs it between his fingers (but there's no blood?)

Now that the medical examiner’s report is coming out, I’m going to share the EMT report that the fire department released. #GeorgeFloydMurder 1/
E17 is the fire truck that was called in to assist the ambulance. It was started on a “code-two,” meaning no lights/no sirens, for a reported “trauma to mouth.” 2/
Once EMTs arrived on the scene, however, the call was upgraded by the dispatcher to a “code-three,” meaning lights on/sirens on. 3/

The more details that get exposed about this incident the fishier this smells.

My first ever REAL protest was at my Alma Mater.They had given permission to a pro-life group to do canvasing on campus, without clearing what they wanted to canvas. I was horrified to find out that this group plastered imagery of aborted tissue everywhere to 'show' how bad it is

@USAmbIceland @usembreykjavik In #deathtotals this impostor leads.
At 100000 our nation bleeds.

Try using SCIENCE.
Trump’s malfeasance?
It’s his failed appliance.
Donald flubbed the #pandemic. Response was anemic!
Upon Trump there exists no reliance.

Fellow Vets,

There are white nationalists who have served in the military & hiding among active duty

Many have become radicalized by the WN ideology

It likely began with an ambiguous boogaloo "joke"

Or a 3% meeting

Or the perversion of an oath

There is a sickness growing
They are teaching "vet bros" to cosplay online as veterans

They disgrace OUR service by creating a false narrative that their online "service" is much more important

They seek to drown out ACTUAL veterans so that THEY can define patriotism

They are easy to recognize if you look...

They typically pose as SF, MI or CI
And use "security clearance" as the excuse for anonymity 🙄

They'll try to say that because of your MOS, that your service somehow counts less

They'll overuse "POG" or misspel acronyms
