    Default Floyd was killed over a suspected counterfeit $20.

    I don't care what you think Chauvin is guilty or innocent of. Something is profoundly wrong with a police system where you can die over twenty dollars.

    is this ignoring the fact he swallowed his inventory of illicit drugs so the cops wouldn't find them in his possession?......

    Something is wrong with a guy who would take drugs like that and then steal shit. The world is better off without the bastard.

    Why did Floyd do that to himself? And over 20 bucks? He had money for drugs, booze, and cigarettes it seems so he couldnt have been that hard up. WHY did he put his life in danger for trying to pass a fake 20? Maybe just a career criminal and it was the only life he knew. I dont know why guys like that keep putting THEMSELVES into such bad positions......

    The cashier testified that Floyd did not suspect the bill might be counterfeit.

    The clerk also testified that Floyd was likely higher than a kite on drugs at the time. But Floyd's possession of counterfeit money--and we don't know if he had additional counterfeit money on him--tends to indicate that he was willing to accept and use such money knowingly. It also argues that Floyd had no problems committing various crimes both misdemeanors and felonies with regularity.

    After all, Floyd was unemployed at the time this occurred, and had a previous history of marginal employment with numerous arrests for violence and drugs in his past. That he casually passed a counterfeit note isn't out-of-line with his being for all intents a career criminal.

    Clerk was 19 years old and working there two months. Hardly expert witness. And anyway, irrelevant to the trial.

    So? His testimony is more relevant than the multitude of onlookers who have foisted their personal opinions in this trial....

    Onlookers will not decide the case.

    In my opinion, the system might have weeded Chauvin out before he reached the breaking point with Floyd. Otherwise the system is not the problem. He went a step beyond what was legal in the encounter and I suspect he then flashed on the possibility that Floyd would bring him up on charges. The fear of that might have been why Chauvin remained on top of Floyd...to prevent future legal action.

    Chauvin killed Floyd on purpose while being filmed by everyone around? Can't be right.
