Days after the George Floyd Incident, Law Officer was one of the few media outlets that questioned the mainstream media narrative of the event. Although we were called more names than we can remember, and were accused of “covering up” for bad cops, that was hardly the case at all.
We just found it very strange that worldwide outrage caused protests and multiple deaths—and injured thousands of officers—all because of a partial video filmed by citizens without any context whatsoever.
And what we discovered in the weeks that followed gave concerned us even more. From the autopsy showing no asphyxia, to the department policy and training approving the “neck technique,” to the absolute silence by those “in the know” on the specific details of this case, there was plenty to be concerned about.
More importantly, for the first time since we could remember, there was no attempt by the media or the politicians to release the body camera footage. None.
In fact, the day that Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey cried on national television touting the effect of so-called “systematic police racism” based on this single police incident, we asked him about the release of the body camera footage via Twitter.
Our request quickly got us blocked from his account.
Indeed, it was strange, that in a city that was always quick to release camera footage, merely asking a question would solicit such an abrupt response.
We wrote about all of it and the attacks on our reputation—and even our servers—were immense.
That is why we knew we were on to something.
We did not want to believe that politicians colluded with mainstream news and social media to hide the facts of this case, or enable the whole world to lose their minds with memes to further a “movement” to abolish law enforcement in America.
Minnesota withheld the full #GeorgeFloyd body cam footage for one reason and one reason only: they knew it would immediately dispel the race narrative and they wanted to assist the Democrats in dividing Americans in an election year.
BLACK LIES MATTER.

But after the recent release of the body camera footage came to light, our fears became a reality.
We say “release” of the footage lightly because it wasn’t released—it was leaked. And the “leak” of the video came with it’s own oddities.
Like the fact that the mainstream media barely sounded a peep about it.
In what has no doubt been the most covered law enforcement event in recent history, the body cam video somehow failed to grab the attention of mainstream news media?
In fact, our editorial team constantly monitors breaking news. Yet we received one alert that the body cam video had been released.
And even more concerning, the alert was from the foreign media outlet that broke the story, the Daily Mail. That says practically everything you need to know about the “fake news” in America.
Of course, there is a reason for all of this. And it is absolutely has become one of the largest media scandals of our lifetime. The video doesn’t line up with the media narrative that a bunch of racist cops killed a complying George Floyd for simply trying to pass a counterfeit bill, which many are quick to somehow prove that he probably didn’t even know it was fake….
Did Minnesota AG Keith Ellison deliberately withhold the #GeorgeFloyd video footage to keep the violent protests going for as long as possible? Please tell me there is some limit to the moral depravity of these Democrats

Keep in mind, the leaked video, which was recorded off of what appears to be a laptop, is still precisely edited. In our estimation, several minutes are missing. And the sound conveniently goes out as Floyd is discussing the fact that he couldn’t breathe—well before he was laid on the ground.
However, there are events in the video that should outrage every American, especially since most Americans were never given the opportunity to view the video, nor were they given factual context because mainstream news media was too busy shoving their own play-by-play on our screens for weeks.
Yet they failed to explain how these “murderous cops” were quite professional throughout the encounter. the officers even offered to roll down the window in the police car, as Floyd resisted getting inside because be claimed he was “claustrophobic.” Meanwhile, practically every media outlet failed to highlight how Floyd resisted arrest throughout the video.
The media also failed to full explain the fact that there was a passenger in Floyd’s vehicle. And they oddly never explained why practically nobody knows the name of the passenger, or how they survived this murderous group of cops.
Even more bizarre, practically none of the mainstream news or social media outlets let the fact that once in the police car, even though he was resisting arrest, when Floyd asked to be placed on the ground, the officers did just that: he asked for help, they responded.
Lastly, as we have pointed out before, there remains not one shred of evidence that race was a factor in this incident—and the body camera footage makes that crystal clear. This incident appears to involve a suspect high on fentanyl and methamphetamine (along with a pre-existing heart condition) that committed a crime and resisted officers until his death.
And there are many other aspects to the current video, and there will be many others as additional footage comes out. Such as the fact that paramedics were called to the scene prior to his death.
There is also the inconvenient fact that Officer Chauvin was concerned about Floyd’s symptoms of excited delirium—and that a 2018 training protocol told officers to subdue prisoners on the ground, if they observed that dangerous phenomenon.
Many of these facts could not be seen in the leaked video because it was all too conveniently cut short.
With all that said, the unfortunate death of George Floyd and the ensuing madness appears to be much more of a political problem and leadership problem—than an actual police problem. But you won’t hear that from anyone. They’re probably too busy covering up “the optics.”
In fact, once the officers are acquitted of murder—because hopefully facts still matter in court—and the 2021 riots begin, the media will once again do to the world what they have been doing all summer. They will decry the systematic racism of law enforcement—and ironically, how justice doesn’t work for men like George Floyd.
Although at the end of the day, anyone who listens to the mainstream media ever again, is letting themselves be taken for a sucker by mainstream media outlets that are clearly winning at brainwashing America.
