CBS "News:" Derek Chauvin and America's Newest Saint Floyd George Had Prior History of Confrontations

I don't think this matters, but maybe not for the reason you think I mean.

I don't think this matters because I'm sure the death of America's Newest Saint George Floyd was completely unintentional.

I personally would not think that putting a knee on the back of someone's neck would be fatal. Uncomfortable, sure. I would think that putting my knee on someone's throat -- the front -- could kill.

Even choking someone out from the front will usually result in unconsciousness, not death, unless the killer keeps choking after the victim is out.

Absent a high-risk medical condition, I mean.

I think the death-by-pressure-to-the-back-of-the-neck scenario is an unlikely one, caused by both the pressure and the drugs the saint was on and the saint's bad state of health.

So I'm having a great deal of trouble imagining someone settles on this bizarre and unlikely-to-succeed method of public execution.

Also, Derek Chauvin was looking off into the distance -- at lookie-loos, maybe -- without showing any concerrn or intensity on his face at all. Which is not the way I'd expect someone committing deliberate murder to look.

If I were committing murder, I think I'd look down to make sure my knee was on the... well, the apparent one square inch of a person's neck that can induce heart failure.

I can imagine murderers having different expressions on their face. "Lackadaisical" and "bored" aren't the faces I imagine.

Anyway, if I thought this was intentional murder, I'd think their prior history of confrontations was meaningful.

But given that this was clearly negligent (at worst), I don't know what this means. Maybe, just that he was more aggressive and less caring than he might have been, if not for the bad blood?

From CBS Fake News:

As mourners in Houston honor the life of George Floyd in Minneapolis, CBS News is learning new details from a nightclub coworker about alleged history between Floyd and Derek Chauvin, the former officer who is charged in Floyd's death. According to a former coworker, not only did they know each other, but they had a history of friction.

Floyd and Chauvin both worked security at a nightclub at the same time. Coworker David Pinney said the two men had a history.

"They bumped heads," Pinney said.

"How?" CBS News asked.

"It has a lot to do with Derek being extremely aggressive within the club with some of the patrons, which was an issue," Pinney explained.

CBS interviews the family, which is spinning every unlikely theory (and conspiracy theory) there is to claim that Saint George was assassinated, and they said the Derek Chauvin definitely knew the Saint.

Really? I've met people I haven't gotten along with and after five years, I could not pick them out of a lineup.



Santamaria said she had been paying Chauvin, when he was off-duty, to sit in his squad car outside El Nuevo Rodeo for 17 years. She said Floyd worked as a security guard inside the club frequently in the last year. In particular, they both worked on Tuesday nights, when the club had a popular weekly dance competition.

Chauvin was paid to be an off-duty cop and sit outside the club?

Wow, they were practically Blood Brothers before the rift, huh?

And the proposed motive for murder is that... Chauvin would sometimes hassle clubgoers too much, and Saint George disagreed with this, and this... laid an egg of deadly malice in Derek Chauvin's heart that then pupated into a Premeditation Inchworm and finally transformed into a Murder Butterfly?

This is dumb. This a dumb, minor work beef that you'd forget about in days. Weeks if you're some kind of grudge-holder.

This sounds like a very petty, very minor dust-up that absolutely no one would kill over -- certainly not years and years later.

If you're this upset by a minor work-beef, then you're a psycho, and you take your vengeance as soon as you can. You don't wait and wait and bide your time until the Perfect(ly Bizarre) Opportunity arises...

I have a feeling that a fleeting and insubstantial acquantanceship is being trumped up for ratings and to advance the left's narrative that this was some kind of... very oddball murder scenario.

And fuck the media, the Enemy of the People, which is trying to start a civil war which it will dearly, dearly regret having started.
