I saw a video just yesterday of the US police gunning down a 15 year old who had just laid the gun he had on the ground in front of him.

5 of them are charged with manslaughter. The guy has a spanish name but looked white, so not really news at the BBC/Guardian.

I just checked (thus my name :)) BBC/Guardian US news sites. No mention.

BBC US news page has front page stories about: LGBT books on amazon, Trans sports in Mississipi, White poetry translator (the horror) for Black feminist poet/activist, female afros, ... white 15 year old shot? No.

Ahh the BBC :)

What loss to society is George Floyd?
Impossible to imagine a more mean spirited nasty post about a man who was callously murdered on film.
Quite extraordinary.

Floyd was a career criminal with jail sentences for robbery and assault.

IFC I genuinely hope no huge policeman ever kneels on your windpipe for a long time because of your skin colour and then watch down as keyboard warriors complain that your family were compensated rather that deplore your “accidental” viscous murder.

I saw the film. I heard the man gasping for breath and whispering I can’t breath. I saw a big policeman kneeling his throat for a long time with callous in deference and for no evident reason. I saw the policeman murder the man.
Do I think it’s likely? It is certain. It was deliberate murder.

Oh dear

for no evident reason
Dealing with a known violent thug might be seen as a reason by some.

I heard the man gasping for breath and whispering I can’t breath

he had been saying "i can;t breath" long before the officer kneeled on him, he was saying it earlier when they were trying to get him into a car

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killing_of_George_Floyd#Initial_events

According to prosecutors, Floyd told the officers that he was not resisting, but that he was recovering from COVID-19, that he was claustrophobic and suffered from anxiety, and that he did not want to sit in the car.[8][9][15]:3:10[63] While Kueng and Lane attempted to put him in the car, Floyd begged them not to, repeatedly saying "I can't breathe" and offering to lie on the ground instead.[9][63][64] During his interview with crime investigators, Lane said that he first saw Floyd bleeding from the mouth at that moment, which he attributed to his "thrashing back and forth" in the car and hitting his face on the glass that goes to the front seat.[65] A Minneapolis Park Police officer arrived and guarded Floyd's vehicle (across the street by the restaurant) and the two people who had been in it with Floyd.[11]:2:53[66]

At 8:17, Chauvin and Thao arrived in a third police car joining Kueng and Lane[11]:3:32[15]:3:27 with Chauvin assuming command.[8] He asked if Floyd was going to jail, and Kueng replied that he was arrested for forgery.[60] Floyd said "I can't ****g breathe" twice.[62] Around 8:18, security footage from Cup Foods shows Kueng struggling with Floyd for at least a minute in the driver side backseat while Thao watches.[11]:3:54[15]:3:49 According to The New York Times, at 8:19, Chauvin pulled Floyd across the backseat from the driver side to the passenger side.[15]:3:56 Then, according to NPR, Floyd exited the vehicle, either pulled out by police or willingly.[67] Still handcuffed, he fell to the pavement.[7]

Report Facts March 15, 2021 6:23 PM GMT
Since the beginning of 2015, officers from the Minneapolis Police Department have rendered people unconscious with neck restraints 44 times, according to an NBC News analysis of police records. Several police experts said that number appears to be unusually high.

Minneapolis police used neck restraints at least 237 times during that span, and in 16 percent of the incidents the suspects and other individuals lost consciousness, the department's use-of-force records show. A lack of publicly available use-of-force data from other departments makes it difficult to compare Minneapolis to other cities of the same or any size.

Police define neck restraints as when an officer uses an arm or leg to compress someone's neck without directly pressuring the airway. On May 25, Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was captured on video kneeling on the neck of a prone and handcuffed George Floyd for eight minutes — including nearly three minutes after he had stopped breathing.

Yet to hear a possible answer as to why this killing of a black man was worthy of so much attention while the daily murders of blackmen on the streets of Britain are all but ignored?so say its because he was killed by the police or it was racist murder either way a murder is a murder whatever the circumstances the deceased is no less dead.
Even Ifyou are killed by another blackman on the streets of London after all black lives matter or maybe not
