This George Floyd whose dad is also George Floyd is not the same George Floyd killed in MPLS whose dad was also George Floyd.

The record of George Floyd who is the man killed in MPLS is long etween 1997 and 2005, he was convicted of eight crimes; in 2009, he accepted a plea bargain for a 2007 aggravated robbery, serving four years in prison. In 2014, he moved to the Minneapolis area, finding work as a truck driver and a bouncer.
A number of risks for perpetuating a crime that becomes part of your adult record . Including potentially being falsely accused or becoming a suspect when similar crimes occur.
I am guilty of confusing the two George Floyd’s.
I don’t think it’s a crime.

    An he had a father!...I'm sure the boy was more influenced by the crowds he hung out with, not to mention the culture...seems having a hard working father is no inoculation to bad behavior.

    Any lesson Judge Judy tried to teach him when he was 16 fell on his deaf ears. He was a career criminal. His death was tragic but constant criminal activity has risks associated with it.

    The absolute worst thing you can do for yourself and your children is to hand over the car keys & let them do whatever they want, leaving a trail of destruction wherever they go for lack of maternal/paternal love & teaching how to grow into a strong person who is anti-fragile & able to mentally compete. We have at least 2 generations now that were largely raised with TV, video games, babysitters, & teachers as surrogate parents that didn't much care. Finding more love/encouragement in their peer group of friends but much not good teaching from such equally primitive minds, paving the way for group-think. Something I've notice in some of the most desperate minds that I've come to know is that they seem to believe that their personal values should be measured by the opinions of whichever "like-minded" peer group(s) they have chosen to follow & "identify with", avoiding the scarier realities that happen internally & externally, trying like hell to keep them out of sight & out of mind. Like trying to roll a boulder up a mountain (instead of looking for one at the top to roll down), you'll get somewhere with it, but the further you get the more dangerous & likely to crush you in becomes.

      I didn't catch that on the first watch (coffee is only just kicking in). Pushing someone to the ground & stealing their car because you were walking down the street & got a little cold sounds about like the choices of someone heavily under the influence of one of the heavier street drugs. They'll blow your mind, just not in a good way.

        heavily under the influence of one..*
        One! See the list in the post mortem. With all that inside a normal person would have trouble standing, thinking, let alone feeling cold.

    It could well be a different George Floyd. However, he's incapable of drawing rational conclusions. I suspect that his IQ is somewhere south of 80.

    That 16-year-old kid has one thing going tor him. He can reason as well as a lot of older state prison inmates I used to talk to.
    If his father can't straighten him out and if he never stops a bullet, he still has a bright future of three hots and a cot plus free medical care.
    He may even finish high school with a free GED while appealing his conviction and suing the department of corrections for whatever he claims to be its fault.
    And I'm sure Bubba will be happy to provide him with plenty of TLC.

    IF this is THE George Floyd that was MURDERED by 4 police, does that mean the murder was justified 30 years later? It hasn't even been established GF knowingly tried to pass a fake $20 bill when he was Murdered. I'm just blown away by the attitudes here. Racism is a word bandied around a lot these days. It's correctly applied in some cases, no matter the denial, just like Duck is applied to a bird that quacks, walks and looks like a duck. Sad stuff.

      I don’t think his murder was justified. Nor do I think the response to his death is justified.
      What evidence is there that this was a racist crime?
      The 2 men knew each other for years having been bouncers at the same club for 17 years.
      It was not established that he passed a fake twenty. Maybe the two employees of the cup Foods colluded with the cops. Or maybe they thought the $20 was bogus.
      It seems you have the attitude you are blown away with, as I haven’t seen any negative racial statements.
      George Floyd of 2020 fame had a record of violence inc. an armed home invasion of a pregnant woman. Floyd held a gun to her pregnant belly.
      This George Floyd whose dad is also George Floyd is not the same George Floyd killed in MPLS whose dad was also George Floyd.

        Ok. I don't see any overt negative racial statements. Those types of statements are not very common in public forums right now.
        The victim shaming and justification is a lot more common. The net is fife with excuses and justifications. Protesters are out of line because rioters and looters operate under civil unrest? Nay nay I say. Criminals are criminals from top of government to the gutters. Consequences are erratic. It's a mess. The winds of change are blowing and it's going to be uncomfortable and dangerous for all of us.
        I don't like Antifa. But I hate government storm troopers more. Yesterday a black man, today Antifa and tomorrow free men.
        No victims only volunteers.
