Tucker Carlson reacted to court documents suggesting that prosecutors knew George Floyd was not murdered but pursued charges anyway because of public opinion and threats of violence.
Floyd’s death in May 2020 led to nationwide riots that caused more than 20 deaths and billions of dollars in property damage. Video from the scene showed a distressed Floyd yelling “I can’t breathe” while four Minneapolis Police officers held him in place.
Hundreds of pages of sworn testimony from Hennepin County prosecutors have now revealed that prosecutors acknowledged the “extreme pressure” to prosecute Derrick Chauvin and three additional former Minneapolis police officers. According to a report from Alpha News, multiple employees of the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, including a prosecutor, withdrew after stating that the pressure to charge the other three officers involved, “violated professional and ethical rules.”
Tucker Carlson reacted to the latest revelations in the latest installment of Tucker on X. Carlson noted that George Floyd’s death has been used to engineer a number of changes in American society, including “decriminalizing stealing, defunding the police, adding a new to the calendar called Juneteenth, the ceasing of hiring all white men in corporate America, and of course, significantly, they also sent a cop called Derek Chauvin to prison for more than 40 years.”
“He would be the racist white devil who murdered George Floyd. But the question is, did he actually murder George Floyd? And the answer is, well, no, he didn’t murder George Floyd. And we’re not guessing about that. We know it conclusively, thanks to a new court case now underway in Hennepin County, Minnesota. The case was brought by a prosecutor there called Amy Sweezy. She’s suing her boss,” Carlson continued.
The lawsuit notes that medical examiners determined that Floyd did not die from asphyxia or strangulation.
“In other words, George Floyd, according to the official autopsy, was not murdered. He died instead of what we used to call natural causes, which in his case would include decades of drug use, as well as the fatal concentration of fentanyl that was in his system on his final day. So this was not a killing. It was yet another narcotics OD in a country that courts more than 100,000 of them every year,” Carlson said.
“The medical examiner clearly understood that and in fact articulated it. And Sweezy explains, he said to me, she recalls in the deposition, Amy, what happens when the actual evidence doesn’t match up with the public narrative that everyone’s already decided on? And then he said, quote, this is the kind of case that ends careers. In other words, everyone lied about it from the very beginning. The people who knew the truth hid the truth and allowed the revolution to proceed.”
