Biden paints Floyd murder as evidence of police racism — without evidence

We know that Derek Chauvin, convicted of murdering George Floyd, was white and that Floyd was black. But do we know that racism was part of Chauvin’s motivation for the ultimately deadly hold he put on Garner?

Well, Joe Biden knows what was in Chauvin’s head. But as the Washington Times notes, the prosecution didn’t think it knew, or could prove it knew, and never including racism as an aggravating factor in its charges.

Those in the White House who always praise “science” don’t seem to want to apply the same rigor when it comes to social issues.

According to the Times:

The racism angle was conspicuously absent from the Derek Chauvin courtroom drama, but not the post-trial push by Democrats for ambitious policing legislation.

President Biden and other Democrats wasted no time after Tuesday’s guilty verdict in trying to link George Floyd’s murder to “systemic racism,” rewriting the prosecution narrative as part of a full-court press for the passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

Mr. Biden called Floyd’s death “a murder in the full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism … that is a stain our nation’s soul” and “the knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans.”

“The jury has reached a just verdict. But nothing will bring back George Floyd or all those who should still be alive,” said Sen. Chris Van Hollen, Maryland Democrat. “We must move urgently to defeat systemic racism in all its forms and the Senate must pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.”

  1. They video I saw showed Floyd refusing to get out of the car. They had to pull him out. Had he complied I think none of this would have happened.

  2. Chauvin’s career is a combination of awards for merit and 18 complaints over 19+ years. IF the officer was reprimanded that often, why was he still on the force? You know why…his union protected his job. The same way bad priests are moved from parish to parish. Sorry, but its true.
    The question I have is not if there is racism in the police force, because there will always be some racism, just as there is in most professions. Training can help but not eliminate all racism. Why are we letting questionable employees remain in crucial jobs if we know there are issues? I see the value in union organization, although I was never a union member. But when a collective organization overly protects the employment of a person who has been before a board of inquiry 18 times, somebody turn on the light bulb and do the necessary. In this case, I see some culpability on the union as well as the individual Both have caused irreparable damage to the overwhelming majority of law enforcement professionals that protect all of us, every single day.

    1. You raise a good point Harv, a point that conservative commentators have commented on. These powerful unions are mostly in Demoncrat controlled cities. These unions and the Demoncrats in charge of the city scratch each other’s backs. The Demoncrats get votes; the unions get lots of money and the right to do whatever they want. This includes protecting jobs of cops who have a strong records of reprimands and complaints. This works in the favor of Demoncrats because if this cop who had a bad record and who is white and kills a black, biden and all Demoncrats can now cry out “Systemic Racism in police departments”. The end result is an intensification of the division in our country which, needless to say, is not good for our country. So much for biden’s words of being a “unifier”. Rather hypocritical, I would say. But then again, it’s biden, a professional politician who we know is a hypocrite of the highest order.
