Police on trial! The Left is breathless!

It’s the O.J.Simpson trial of 2021

Except that it’s the police on trial this time. Pinch any progressive, social justice warrior, or grievance monger and tell them they are not dreaming. This is their rapture.

The gray lab coats here at the Werkes watched all four of the police cam videos as they were presented to the court in the George Floyd trial Wednesday in Minneapolis. (Thank you cable station HLN.) So that makes us an expert, right? No? Well, probably not.

Fools rush in to comment on so racially charged an issue. (Smile when you call us a fool.) That hasn’t stopped MSNBC from convicting Officer Derek Chauvin and his co-defendants. Anyone who suggests lack of murderous intent risks being played the race card. The Werkes cheerfully acknowledges that this is not a good case for police anywhere. Whether it warrants a second- or third-degree murder conviction is less certain.

Defund police paintdThat won’t stop the hard Left from condemning law enforcement en banc. Especially if Chauvin and the others are exonerated. Even a conviction on a lesser charge will motivate the crazies to smash plate glass from Madison to Seattle and back again to Baltimore. They’re ready. Are we?

The Progressive cause is an empty suit if it can’t make the case that police are out to kill people of color. Otherwise, how to explain 50 years of failure? Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, New York, Chicago, and Madison WI are not exactly Trump territory.

Nine impertinent questions

The Werkes, therefore, will tread lightly. We ask questions, you answer.

Question #1: If one claims to be claustrophobic, does that mean police can’t haul you off to the hoosegow?

#2: If not in a police squad car, how is one transported to jail? Fast walked?

#3: When did Mr. Floyd develop automobile claustrophobia? He was seen driving with a passenger next to him early in the police videos.

#4: If one cannot breathe, how was he able to declare the same “nearly 30 times”  (according to the Associated Press)?

#5: Given the political climate, should law enforcement handle people of color according to a different standard?

#6: Will the jury be swayed by potential civil unrest if they exonerate or convict the police on lesser charges?

#7: Did Derek Chavin need to kneel on the man’s neck for 9+ minutes? Did he put his full weight on that knee or balance off with the other foot?

#8: Why wasn’t George Floyd tased?

#9: Where is the passenger in Floyd’s automobile?

About that passenger, Jonathan Turley reports “the person with the greatest knowledge and observation of Floyd” will invoke the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination if he is called to testify.

Hall was with Floyd when he allegedly attempted to use a fake $20 bill at Cup Foods. In the video shown at trial, Floyd appears high and the employee who flagged the fake bill also said on the stand that he appeared on drugs. …  Hall gave a false name to officers … then left Minneapolis. He was tracked down in Texas and arrested due to outstanding warrants for felony possession of a firearm, felony domestic assault, and felony drug possession.

Crime is up in Minneapolis

How ‘Defund the police’ killed police reform: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) backed the push to defund the police department in Minneapolis, where violent crime has since soared, while fellow congressional “democratic socialists” Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.), Cori Bush (D., Mo.), and Jamaal Bowman (D., N.Y.) endorsed the idea on social media. — Washington Free Beacon.

Blaska’s Bottom Line Question: Why does Madison’s left, including the candidates endorsed by Progressive Dane, resist police body cameras?

    I rather suspect #6 is the decisive question: “Will the jury be swayed by potential civil unrest if they exonerate — or convict — the police on lesser charges?” (I might substitute “pressurized,” if not “coerced,” for “swayed.” And I might suggest the jurors have reason to fear for their own well-being upon returning not guilty verdicts.)

      Most definitely. I wouldn’t put it past members of the left to make sure that information is disclosed to the public.

        The NY Times has been very inquisitive about the Minneapolis jurors. Not they are trying to doxx anyone! No responsible zoo of journalists would ever do that!

    I tried to take the 9 question test, and guessed at 6 of them:

    Question #1: “claustrophobic, does that mean police can’t haul you off ?” (Claustrophobes, along with homo/trans-phobes, racists, and xenophobes, must be apprehended, detained, and re-educated before society can begin the process of “healing”

    #2: “If not in a police squad car, how is one transported to jail?” (Amazon drone delivery is a timely and affordable option, perfect for the claustrophobic “perp”)

    #3: “When did Mr. Floyd develop automobile claustrophobia?” ( When the officers declined his offer to drive the squad car. Many people are reluctant to turn over driving duties to others)

    #4: “If one cannot breathe, how was he able to declare the same “nearly 30 times” (Drug induced Super Powers?)

    #5: “Given the political climate, should law enforcement handle people of color according to a different standard?” (Yes, if they value their jobs, and “know what’s good for them”)

    #6: “Will the jury be swayed by potential civil unrest?” (Yes if they value their LIVES, and “know what’s good for them”)

    The other 3 questions are being examined in a court of law. If “The Werkes” can commit to “tread lightly”, I will certainly “watch where I put my knee”.

      Extra credit question– “Why does Madison’s left resist police body cameras?” (Same reason “Madison’s left” resists cell phones at protests, they “do harm” to those engaged in criminal activity)

    Excellent post, Dave. You bring up a lot of important, though provoking questions. Great job!

    “#5: Given the political climate, should law enforcement handle people of color according to a different standard?”

    In the eyes of the law? No, we’re all individuals deserving of equal treatment. Yet cops will be in a tough spot, to be sure. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    “#6: Will the jury be swayed by potential civil unrest if they exonerate — or convict — the police on lesser charges?”

    One of Heather MacDonald’s recent articles suggests that the jury will indeed be swayed and Chauvin will be charged with something, anything, because of this factor.

    “#8: Why wasn’t George Floyd tased?”

    That was my question, too. This would have probably ended much differently if he’d been tased. Was it malice, poor training, panic, or something else on Chauvin’s? This is what the JURY needs to decide. It’s not up to the media or public.

    Speaking of jurors, my prayers are with them. I worry that the media and unscrupulous on the left with disclose their identities.

    “Even a conviction on a lesser charge will motivate the crazies to smash plate glass from Madison to Seattle and back again to Baltimore. They’re ready. Are we?”

    If last summer is any indication, then I’d say no, we’re not ready. The directives for cops to make arrests need to come from the top, and I just don’t see that happening, at least not to the degree that’s needed to keep peace.

    Leaders will cower like the last time. When the damage is done and businesses and lives destroyed, the left will claim it was the result of the voice of the unheard. Few, if any, will be held accountable.

    This is the new normal. It shouldn’t be, but our leaders are mostly weak and people are scared to say anything.

      Liberty,
      Indeed, there is much too much fear these days as widespread docile compliance with the ever-changing 99% survivable~~~>covid restrictions illustrate.
      On the local nextdoor.com website there were a lot of comments saying “it’s just property” in response to those objecting to the police being ordered to stand down while the domestic terrorists looted, burned, vandalized, and essentially had free rein to do whatever they pleased on State Street.
      Isn’t Madison neat.

    David, I read your questions and my only answers to all 9 of them is you are just racist. No one can take a cis gendered white male seriously. This is the response from all democrat party supporters and elected officials that only see things through the lens or blinders of critical race theory.

    #4: If one cannot breathe, how was he able to declare the same “nearly 30 times”

    Floyd had a major overdose of Fentanyl in his bloodstream. One of the effects of an opiod overdose is fluid accumulation in the lungs, and therefore a sense of being unable to breath is not unusual. One of the symptoms of a heart attack is shortness of breath. Testimony last week established that Floyd had foam in his mouth, logically it got there from his lungs.

    Of course for a couple of years now, it’s been standard for some people being arrested to insist “I can’t breath! I can’t breath” just because. Ask any cop with more than 2 years on the Job.

    By the way, if you choose to look up the street definition of “hooping” don’t do that while eating your lunch. I did and nearly lost my appetite.
