    Floyd died of too much fentanyl, same thing that killed Tom Petty and Prince. Now , his bad decisions will not only be paid with his life but those police officers involved will pay a price too. I blame all this BS on mainstream media for airing an incomplete story of the incident. Funny, recently 2 police shootings in my area. Same scenario both men were shot for resisting arrest and posing a danger to the police. This did not draw national attention. You know why? The individuals who were shot were white. Mainstream media only airs what will get a response and when a white criminal gets hurt or dies resisting arrest, the white populace believe he brought that on himself and nobody cares. On the other hand, a large black populace in this country takes it personal when the same thing happens to one of their own and mainstream media banks on a reaction from that populace. Either way none of this would happen if all these people (black and white) stop thinking thinking they are above the law and causing the police to use force. To me with all the the problems this country has, this issue does not merit the division and hatred it has created

    2 things. Number 1 he was saying he couldn't breath while he was standing up not cooperating when they tried to get him to just get in the car. Number 2. The officer knee was on the back of his neck, not his throat and didn't have all his weight on him.

    He didn't die over 20.00. He died because he was a drug addict and refused to comply with the police.
