John McWhorter and Glenn Loury have covered many of these incidents in recent years (Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, etc.) in a critical and thoughtful way. This most recent one is certainly worth a watch, if you haven't already.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did watch that one earlier this month.

Dr Smoots, thank you for your courage in speaking the truth about this. I am an NP in MN and read the original autopsy report on a use-of-force website days after Floyd died. It was clear he died of a overdose(s), complicated by HCM and a myriad of other chronic illnesses. Days later, that report disappeared, and the "new" narrative took its place. Despite knowing all of this, Liz Collins' documentary revealed to me infinitely more corruption in this state's leaders than I could have ever imagined. I pray daily for those innocent officers. May God protect them and grant them exhoneration. Thank you again for being a lone voice to speak out for truth!

Thank you for providing more of the back story. I think it's important for the public to know that left-wing government officials are willing to tell lies, even under oath, in support of identity Marxist ideology. Their slogan is "by any means possible." This film brings some transparency to the consequences of having supporters of Marxist ideology--euphemistically called "progressives"--in official positions in government. This election year is a good time for voters to start kicking them out.

"The Fall of Minneapolis" is a great film. I already knew some of George Floyd's criminal history including drugs, armed robbery etc but the film really brought out the total corruption of the Minneapolis judicial system and the upper echelons of the Police Dept. They totally betrayed their own officers, all for the sake of D.E.I. As Elon Musk has stated" DEI must DIE".

My view of what happened has changed after watching the film. The Minneapolis police department trained all of their police officers in the MRT technique, and when the officers used it as trained, the police department did not back them up. Instead, the police leadership betrayed their officers. The MRT PowerPoint slides and training manual tell the real story, yet this information and much more was excluded from the trial. This is fraud and corruption.

Exactly. The following is vague for obvious reasons, but I also know some from the former 3rd Precinct. The entire precinct was a sacrificial lamb to Marxism which is why we saw "retired" by most names in the documentary. As you said, "By all means necessary" is their mantra, and they are deadly serious about that. They must be voted out this year.

Also, apologies for the typo in my first comment. It should read, "an overdose(s)," not "a." I love grammar too much to let that typo hang out there. I had a classical education, after all. :)

Thank you for that additional bit of information. We can all do our part by having conversations with those we know about the consequences of having supporters of Marxism in government positions.
