United States Republican smears murdered George Floyd

This 31 May 2020 video from the USA says about itself:

Racist Mississippi mayor attacks George Floyd. John Iadarola and Ana Kasparian break it down on The Damage Report.

“A Mississippi [Republican party] mayor is facing serious backlash after posting several comments on social media platforms concerning the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died in police custody Monday evening after an officer knelt on his neck for several minutes.

In videos of the fatal encounter that quickly went viral, a white police officer was shown sharply pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck while he was handcuffed and not moving on the pavement. Various cries protesting the officer’s conduct can be heard, all of which went ignored.

Floyd, who is black, was suspected of using a forged $20 bill on Monday evening. He could repeatedly be heard crying out, “I can’t breathe”, before he eventually lost consciousness.

The officers involved in the horrific incident were fired on Wednesday, but mayor Hal Marx of Petal, Mississippi, took a different approach, defending their actions.

    • Donald Trump spends most time on threatening anti-murder demonstrators with military violence. In a small part of what he said, he called the death of George Floyd ‘a tragedy’. Ever since ancient Greece, a ‘tragedy’ is something caused by Fate, the gods, or God, in which humans (like Minneapolis police) are not guilty.

      Now, Trump’s fellow Republican in Mississippi says what he thinks (and what Trump may think too, though he does not openly says it).
