  6. Here’s your Chauvin/Floyd trial update from LI.

    The media once again does a disservice to America by ignoring evidence, facts, and testimony in order to create yet another false narrative.

    “Prosecution Problems Ignored or Misrepresented In Mainstream Media

    There are very significant prosecution evidentiary problems ignored or misrepresented in the mainstream media. which will lead to an even larger explosion of violence if there is a not guilty verdict.”

    Which is their intent, to inflame.

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/04/derek-chauvin-trial-prosecution-problems-ignored-or-misrepresented-in-mainstream-media-open-thread/

    “I’m not making any predictions. I think the verdict could go either way at this stage, and if I had to put a wager on the table, it’s more likely that there will be a guilty finding on at least one of the counts. There is sufficient evidence, particularly after the prosecution medical expert witnesses, for a jury to find guilt, if the jury believes the prosectution witnesses and discounts whatever contrary experts the defense brings. The 9-minute video is still very powerful evidence. Conversely, there also is enough in dispute for a finding of reasonable doubt.

    The jurors also know that the city and much of the nation will explode if there is a ‘not guilty’ verdict, and that they will be doxxed and their lives ruined.

    What I can say with confidence is that as with the George Zimmerman trial, the public is being misinformed by the mainstream media that this is an open-and-shut case, and if Chauvin is found not guilty it’s because of systemic racism in society and the judicial system.

    For example, the widely accepted narrative that Chauvin kept his ‘knee on the neck’ for 9 minutes has been thoroughly debunked by the prosecution’s own witnesses and the body cams. There was pressure by Chauvin’s knee, but it was not continuously on the neck, and was mostly on the back and shoulders, according to prosecution medical witness testimony. Recognizing this evidentiary problem, the prosecution case has shifted from the initial several trial days of claiming that pressure from the knee to the corotid artery cut off blood flow to the brain causing loss of oxygen and inability to breathe, a claim rejected by the prosecution’s own medical experts, to a broader claim that Floyd being restrained while handcuffed in the prone position with pressure from multiple officers impaired his ability to inhale.

    There are very significant evidentiary problems ignored or misrepresented in the mainstream media as to (1) cause of death, (2) whether Chauvin caused the death, (3) whether the force used by Chauvin was unlawful, and for some counts, (4) Chauvin’s intent. People who only read the mainstream media coverage of the case are ignorant of these issues.

    A good example of media malfeasance is an article I stumbled upon at WaPo with this headline, Chauvin’s attorney argues Floyd saying, ‘I can’t breathe,’ was a form of resisting arrest, which started with this opening paragraph:

    Testimony in the trial of Derek Chauvin continued Wednesday with the former officer’s defense team arguing that George Floyd saying, “I can’t breathe,” while police attempted to load him into the squad car was a form of resisting arrest.

    That makes the defense seem absurd and laughable, something that should not be taken seriously from an evidentiary view. Except that’s not what Chauvin’s attorney said in questioning the MPD use of force trainer. As the article text (if you read deep down) makes clear, the context was testimony elicited that officers need to consider a person’s other actions in judging whether a suspect saying ‘I can’t breathe’ is legitimate, and that if the suspect is otherwise “actively resisting arrest,” that statement may not be credible:
    “If somebody is saying, ‘I can’t breathe,’ and they’re passing out and they’re not resisting, that’s one form of an analysis, right, because the actions of the suspect are consistent with the verbal utterances he’s making, right?” Nelson asked.

    “Other times and in this particular case, when Mr. Floyd was initially saying that he couldn’t breathe, he was actively resisting arrest initially when he was in the back seat of the vehicle, right?” he continued.

    The admission by the MPD officer was significant in the defense showing that the use of force was reasonable. But WaPo readers would not know that, certainly not the majority who read only the headline and opening paragraph. That is just a small example of how the media distorts the case and the trial to fit its narrative. This distorted narrative will lead to an even larger explosion of violence if there is a not guilty verdict.”

  7. The US does ration health care — on the basis of money not need. However, since the US has a private system are not corporate hospitals allowed to distribute their products as they see fit? In a public system the emphasis is supposed to be on need and other considerations are rarely given. But yes capitalism and private property allows hospitals to do what they want in the US.

    The NYT headline is misleading as the commission has been told to look at a variety of issues. I don’t think “conservative majority” is mentioned by the commision or admin. Given McConnell’s behaviour — no appointments in the last year of a presidency changed to rush an appointment right before an election — , its understandable to study the process and put consistent rules in place.

    Short term employees rarely have an interest in a union since a newly unionized workplace promises short term pain for long term gain. Unlike the 1950s, people rarely stay in the same job for decades especially unskilled. From the coverage I’ve seen Amazon did interfere in the union drive or at least by the standards I know — Alabama law might be different. Companies need to be careful when faced with a union drive — in some jurisdictions, any inferference will result in automatic unionization. This occured to a few McDonalds and two or three Walmarts in Canada — they sent American managers to deal with the union drive and they forgot to read the labor code in BC and Quebec.

    If Chavon wasn’t a cop, there would be no consideration of not guility. The defense may freeze frame every second and stretch the concept of reasonable doubt, but in the end its manslaughter at the very least. The actions of Chavon resulted in Floyd’s death. As a policeman he should be held to a higher standard and I would argue for first degree simply because of this. The idea of qualified immunity is the exact opposite of how we should view the actions of law enforcement.

    “The Supreme Court late Friday ruled against California, blocking the restrictions ban on in-home Bible studies and other religious gatherings.

    The court’s narrow 5–4 ruling was in favor of a group of Santa Clara residents who asserted the restrictions violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.

    “Applicants are likely to succeed on the merits of their free exercise claim; they are irreparably harmed by the loss of free exercise rights ‘for even minimal periods of time’; the State has not shown that ‘public health would be imperiled’ by employing less restrictive measures,” an unsigned opinion of the court’s majority said in its opinion.

    The ruling is the fifth time the nation’s highest court has overruled the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on California COVID-19 fueled restrictions, including a February ruling that saw the court grant a worshipper’s application asking for restrictions on in-person religious services be rolled back.”

  9. HRW, first-degree murder is premeditated murder, not an arrest gone wrong. One of my brothers watches a lot of cop shows (police filmed in the actual line of duty, knowing they are being recorded), and he said that kneeling on the suspect is pretty common, must be in the training, and must not have been all that controversial before last summer or police wouldn’t be doing it when they know the camera is rolling.

    Well, I don’t watch cop shoes, and I haven’t watched the Floyd video. But if police officers were following their actual training, it’s going to be a really tough call to find them guilty of any level of “murder.” Negligence or manslaughter, perhaps. But whatever your job, if you are doing it the way you were trained to do it, and someone dies, murder isn’t the appropriate charge. Changing policies and training might well be appropriate. They just can’t change the policies to the point where police cannot arrest someone who resists arrest. They must have the authority and power to do that–to do it as safely as possible for everyone concerned, but to do it.

  11. Kamala Harris and her not so merry cult of woke internet trolls.

    “Kamala Harris’ #KHive Fans Swarm WrongThinkers, Accuse Them Of Racism, Misogyny”

    “Where the divisive and democracy-crushing impact of leftist identity politics meets cancel culture meets shutuppery is perhaps nowhere more apparent than in the rabidly pro-Kamala Harris online mob known as K-Hive. Questioning anything she says or doesn’t say, does or doesn’t do, draws the K-mob and its screeching “racist,” “misogynist,” and “white supremacist/privilege” attacks.

    So persistent and prevalent are these cultish pro-Kamala parrots that politicians on both sides of the aisle are reportedly cowed into submission, afraid to critique or question, much less challenge Harris on anything.

    The Los Angeles Times reports:

    When Rep. Ro Khanna started pressing Vice President Kamala Harris to use her procedural power to push a national minimum wage hike a few weeks ago, he found himself targeted by a swarm of online Harris supporters.

    “I see progressives are on message with the Blame the Black woman boogeywoman strategy,” an account called @blackwomenviews tweeted at Khanna, the Fremont Democrat.

    “Your misogyny is showing,” wrote another, who added a GIF of a woman disdainfully tilting her head.

    Khanna had aroused the wrath of the KHive, Harris’ extensive, loose-knit and fiercely loyal fanbase, which celebrates and defends the vice president with equal fervor. Members of KHive, a riff on Beyoncé’s loyal fanbase known as the Beyhive, sometimes use the hashtag #KHive in their social media posts, and many mark their allegiance in their Twitter profiles with yellow hearts and bee emojis.

    Not being attuned to Beyonce and being a Southerner, I heard “K-Hive,” and I thought Queen Bee. They are swarming for their queen, I shuddered in horror. “Queen Bee” is not a nice thing in the South, so the only foundation I had for understanding this K-Hive nonsense was decidedly negative. These are the mean girls, the psychos in debutante dress who belittle others to feel better about themselves.

    So the drone/worker bees are swarming to protect the Queen Bee. This is a good thing, how?

    Even the Bernie Bros are intimidated by the K-Hive (wrap your mind around that).
    The LA Times continues:

    “They’re vicious,” said Briahna Joy Gray, press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2020 primary, who tangled with the group more than once.

    “I am not interested in talking about that subject at all,” said David Sirota, another former Sanders advisor and frequent KHive target.

    The KHive is the type of modern political army that politicians increasingly rely on for both support and defense.

    Oh, and in case you are wondering, the K-Hive doesn’t support a single thing Harris has ever said or done. It supports her because she’s a black woman. No, really. That is the entire basis of their support . . . according to them.”

    Injections at the Cumming Fairgrounds in Forsyth County have been halted after eight people experienced adverse reactions post-vaccination, the Georgia Department of Health said Friday.

    One person was evaluated at the hospital and released while the others were monitored onsite and later sent home.

    All eight received Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.”

    “Woman contracts COVID three weeks after J&J vaccination”

    “A disturbing headline popped up in the New York Post this weekend, calling attention to a young woman from Brooklyn who recently contracted COVID. That headline wouldn’t be remarkable at all, were it not for one thing. Ashley Allen had received her Johnson&Johnson vaccination three weeks prior to testing positive. It’s clearly a frustrating experience for Allen, who claims that she still followed all of the masking and social distancing protocols after being vaccinated, but medical authorities are reminding people that, while uncommon, this type of event was predicted before the vaccines even went into general productions.

    A Brooklyn woman who managed to avoid catching COVID-19 throughout 2020 went down with the bug this month — three weeks after being vaccinated.

    Ashley Allen, 31, spoke to The Post by phone while quarantined in her Williamsburg apartment and in between calls from city contact tracers. The contact tracers “started asking me questions about what I was doing three weeks ago,” Allen said. “And I said I was getting vaccinated.”

    Allen was thrilled when she was able to book an appointment for the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the Javits Center on March 10.

    Allen reports that she experienced only mild side effects from the vaccine for one day and then felt fine. Three weeks later, the trouble began. Initially, her symptoms started with a dry, scratchy throat, progressing to a dry cough. Within a few days, she experienced “debilitating fatigue,” and went to see her doctor. Allen flunked three COVID tests in a row, confirming that she had indeed contracted the disease.

    But as health officials are reminding us, none of the vaccines provide 100% absolute immunity. The Johnson&Johnson shot is rated as being 66% effective in terms of preventing infection, meaning that if you are exposed, you still have a one in three chance of contracting the disease. (Moderna and Pfizer are rated as being 95 and 96 percent effective respectively.) But the difference is, there should be little to no chance that Ashley Allen will die or require hospitalization as a result of catching COVID because her immune system is fighting off the virus.”

  18. All this BLM stuff makes less and less sense to me.

    HRW
    Like BLM, what you say is so one-sided that I am unable to take anything you say seriously. 16% voted for unionization? Doesn’t sound like the union was even close to winning. Did liberal Amazon do something wrong? How in the world did a union lose an election? That is never supposed to happen in a Democratic controlled world! it is nit allowed to happen! Republican/conservatives must have somehow cheated! It is not possible that a union could lose?
