“George Floyd’s KILLING”!? Never let an incorrect statement stand unopposed!

George Floyd died of heart failure, according to the official autopsy1. Calling George Floyd’s death a police killing, or murder violates the “presumption of innocence” of the police officers involved. The principle of presumption of innocence is enshrined in both media ethics codes2 and our legal system. In our PC world of unequal rights3, white police officers seem exempt from the presumption of innocence.

“George Floyd’s killing”!? Never let an incorrect statement stand unopposed! Media’s illegal ignoring presumption of innocence causes riots and killings

One may say “alleged killing”, but it is not allowed to call it “killing”.

 

In liberal San Francisco, white responses to George Floyd’s killing proved revealing |Yahoo [AMREN]

“ Alleged killing”!

“George Floyd’s DEATH”   or, if necessary, “ ALLEGED KILLING”, in spite of Hennessey County official autopsy result

Never let one single lie be repeated without talking back.
TruthRevolution: The Whole Truth

Especially because this “killing” violates both libel laws and media ethics: everyone is supposed to be painted as innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Of course, media do not even report about this autopsy. A scientific study questioning knowledge of that autopsy’s existence and content would probably yield 0% to 2% of any chosen population knowing the official autopsy result(see Obfuscation-index: % of counter-narrative facts hidden from media readers)

We presume the writer himself is unaware of it. We could start asking the writer himself or get Yahoo’s official position and fact check.

The headline is a lie in violation of media ethics.

This  ethics violation extremely relevant! This concerted media lie caused

  • world wide riots
  • billions of property damage caused by police inaction
  • Biden’s election
  • repressive laws world wide
  • Donations and activism by Amazon, Google, …..
  • Question: did Twitter fact checkers add “This statemen about killing is contested and unsupported” LOL

Again, never leave any untruth uncontested. And keep the link and a copy of the autopsy handy!

The autopsy report from Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office concludes the cause of death was “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.” That conclusion, death due to heart failure, differs from the one reached by an independent examiner hired by the Floyd family; that report listed the cause of death as “asphyxiation from sustained pressure.”

Ann Coulter: We Don’t Believe The MSM On George Floyd, Because We KNOW They Lied About Rodney King

One reason some of us are waiting for all the facts is that we suspect the media may not be extra scrupulous in cases that give them the opportunity to wail about “systemic racism.”

It turns out, for example, Floyd didn’t die of asphyxiation. According to the Hennepin County medical examiner’s report cited in the criminal complaint charging Officer Derek Chauvin with murder, he died of a heart attack. The autopsy also found Floyd had fentanyl in his system, had recently used methamphetamine, had coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. Two weeks ago, this would have been another COVID-19 death.

According to Nexis, these official autopsy findings have not been reported at all on MSNBC and only briefly—to be explained away—on CNN. (The family’s private autopsy concluding Floyd’s death was caused by strangulation has been widely reported.)

It could still be murder, but the “I can’t breathe” slogans aren’t quite accurate. Aw, they’ve already made their protest signs, and we’d have to re-do the chyrons—does it really matter?

There also hasn’t been loads of reporting on Floyd’s five years in prison for armed robbery. I know the guy has just died, and he seemed to have turned his life around, but the media isn’t holding a memorial service. They’re supposed to be reporting news. How about an interview with Floyd’s victims? Wouldn’t that be a newsy segment?

Again, according to Nexis, Floyd’s armed robbery conviction has been fleetingly mentioned only once on ABC News and once on Fox News.

The other reason some of us are waiting for all the facts can be summed up with two words: Rodney King. [Source: Ann Coulter: We Don’t Believe The MSM On George Floyd, Because We KNOW They Lied About Rodney King]
