Welcome to Fairfax Underground, a project site designed to improve communication among residents of Fairfax County, VA. Feel free to post anything Northern Virginia residents would find interesting.
Because under some circumstances you can kneel on a suspects neck while cuffing then its ok to kneel on someones neck for 9 consecutive minutes despite suspect being already handcuffed and prone and non-resistant and unconscious and dead.
Ive watched some of the trial so far. Floyd was a mess but once they had him cuffed on the ground face down they should have gotten off him and turned him on his side as one of the officers suggested to Chauvin while Floyd was saying he couldnt breath. That is what they are trained to do with a cuffed suspect in a prone position, turn them on their side. They didnt do that the defense claims because of the very scary crowd standing on the curb with their phones out yelling 'you are killing him, get off him!'
