Dem Anger Grows at Klobuchar Earlier Failure to Prosecute Cop Involved in George Floyd Killing

Dem Anger Grows at Klobuchar Earlier Failure to Prosecute Cop Involved in George Floyd Killing

“Amy Klobuchar has more contempt for her own staffers than she does for bad cops.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar came under fire on Wednesday when a report revealed that back in 2006 she did not prosecute the policeman who allegedly murdered George Floyd. Kemberlee noted that she blew her chance to become Biden’s VP.

But the left and right came out in full force on social media, dragging Klobuchar through the burning coals for her horrible decision.

Here are a few reactions I found on Twitter:

Would it break up the lynch mobs too much to wait for the autopsy. What’s the rush.

Bits of prior video might be interesting too.

    What cause of death do you feel would absolve Officer Chauvin?

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to MarkS. | May 29, 2020 at 5:33 pm

      Anything other than asphyxia (lack of oxygen) or strangulation. Which it looks like neither were the case here if you believe the statements in the Chauvin charging document.

      Given how long Officer Chauvin kept the “choke hold” going, I do not believe anything in the autopsy could “absolve” the officers, but it might mitigate the charges that I otherwise see rising above the Murder-3 charge on Chauvin.
      Whether we read it or kept in the dark, I believe the new revelation they worked bar security together a year ago is going to be significant. This was personal.

    From the charging document:

    The Hennepin County Medical Examiner (ME) conducted Mr. Floyd’s autopsy on May 26, 2020. The full report of the ME is pending but the ME has made the following preliminary findings. The autopsy revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.

    Of course, that’s not going to go over well with the usual suspects (Hi, Benji Crump!) if the final ME report concludes he didn’t die of asphyxia or strangulation so expect any number of “re-evaluations of the autopsy” until they get the findings they want for prosecution.

It doesn’t Matter. A black man died and there is video of a PO kneeing his neck
All mayhem including anything, anything that happens during the riots will be forgiven of the rioters.
It’s open season in Minneapolis

This couldn’t happen to a more lovely woman… not.

This is starting to remind me of the “Biden is finished” chorus we we have been hearing for some time. Like Biden, no matter what Klobuchar may or may not have done the mandarins of the Democrat Party do not let the unwashed heathen proles tell them what to do – period.

Whether Klobuchar is the Democrat VP nominee or not will depend solely on whether she gives the ticket a boost. If the Democrat Party leadership decides she does, all of this negative publicity will vanish in the blink of an eye.

This guy was involved in 3 shootings prior to the Floyd incident? That seems like a lot considering most officers never discharge their weapons in the line of duty.

    Don’t forget that this is Mogadishu-St. Paul. They had that Somali wanker copper shoot that foreign (white) woman….(gee…no riots then.). This is Rodney King all over again…The police not sensing when to stop subduing someone already subdued. Now the the city has the problem of not subduing the rioters they need subduing. In the later case, the Left will fail just like in Baltimore and LA.

    The guy was a 19 year veteran. Depending on his assignments and his luck, during those two decades, three shooting incidents, at least one of which involved multiple officers, is not an especially large number. Most criminals decide to surrender or run, when facing an armed LEO. However, a certain percentage of them will choose to fight, including with firearms. If that happens, the LEO’s response options are limited.

Stacy Abrams going, pick me, pick me, pick me

These attacks on Klobuchar are nothing more than the attempts of the left to remove her as a potential VP pick. It is political gamesmanship. They desperately want an obviously black woman as VP, because she is going to be President within 2 years of Biden’s inauguration.

    MattLauersNob in reply to Mac45. | May 29, 2020 at 12:35 pm

    I give it until the end of January in the unlikely event Creepy Uncle Joe wins. He could conceivably be removed before the inauguration he’s that far gone. His behavior reminds me of my father in law as he deteriorated.

      I believe this is the major part of why there is no declared VP candidate. If the MSM, Deep State, and Bilderberg financiers can carry Sleazy Joe across the finish line I expect him to be outed by 26th A after the election, after the electoral College has voted, or very shortly after the inauguration…
      They (each group separately) desperately need a first string candidate while vehemently disagreeing as to who is an adequately first string replacement.

From Yahoo, apparently the man the officer shot in 2006 “was involved in the shooting death of a man who had stabbed other people before attacking police”…

I think we’ll all understand if a prosecuting attorney refuses to indict an officer who took down a perpetrator who was stabbing people. I understand how it’s being played this morning, but second-guessing 13 years later what was at the time considered to be justifiable is unfair to everyone, including the city.

From what I’ve read, the police officer who put his knee into the neck of Mr. Floyd had problems. He may well have had PTSD, or had seen and done too much to be an effective officer, or just had a bad attitude. From what we know today (and we’ll learn more, to be sure), he should not have been on the street.

None of this justifies the death of Mr. Floyd, and none of this justifies the rioting and looting.

Over the next few months we will see a constant stream of Russiagate disclosures. My personal conspiracy theory is that key players have consented to testify to malfeasance in exchange for no prosecution.

I’m holding my breath for Judge Sullivan’s next move. Some legal scholar needs to explain what form of ending will have the least awful optics. It seems that the Judge desperately wants to put the blame on someone else.

Wow those idiots actually make me feel bad for Amy Klobuchar.

Not that I want her anywhere near the White House mind you.

I’m sure she would have loved to nail a police officer for something just to prove she’s tough on police.

At the very least this shows that she did a semi-competent job in the sense that she wasn’t trying to burn every officer that came across her desk because of her politics.

In the good old days they didn’t have to kill somebody first; The Community could go on a looting orgy with the tiniest excuse, like a power outage. So I suppose in that sense, things are improving.

Violated the one D-party commandment: she got caught.

How do them bus wheels feel Amy?

The evil is bipartisan support of the police. You can transpose Al Sharpton by changing Black to Blue and it sounds like Sean Hannity. The Democrats are into graft and corruption and the Police need their pensions and benefits. They are protecting the corruption.

Conservatives at least think the Norman Rockwell paintings, or the small town “Oh, Joe, I go to church with him” as opposed to the invasive species version (the NJ gym’s initial cops said “your in violation, have a nice day”, so they brought in another department to shut them down.

Liberals/Progressives are just stupid or evil. Anyone could go to one of the places where there are problems, almost all deep blue democrat – California is particularly bad (I subscribe to police abuse sites, and there is a geographic difference – OK is bad though red). They are in the majority, but vote the patronage candidate, or the socialist, not the one who will actually do anything to clean up the cops.

Not new – Serpico (NYC) dates from the 1970’s IIRC.
