Tibberly Richard - George Floyd

*As a mom, I was inspired to pay tribute to George Floyd.

The video of his death was such a shock to the conscious. It immediately caused what I describe as internal emotional confusion. Unsure of what I was feeling. Unable to process the images shown.

The past few weeks have been traumatic for those who witnessed his death. We are all grappling with how to respond – some protest, some paint, some kneel, some draw, and some pray. I decided to write.

I wanted to capture some of the emotional heartache associated with this tragedy – the emotional and post-traumatic stress inflicted on the world as we watched George Floyd die pinned down by the knee of a police officer – an image we will remember the rest of our lives.

Tibberly G. Ri’chard, J.D., is a single mother, entrepreneur, mental healthcare business owner and former journalist.

Geo. Floyd’s Killer Derek Chauvin Has Divorce Settlement DENIED Due to Possibility of Fraud

*A Washington County (Minnesota) judge has rejected a divorce settlement filed by Derek Chauvin’s estranged wife due to the possibility of fraud.

Days after Derek was officially charged with manslaughter and the murder of George Floyd, Kellie Chauvin filed for divorce on May 31. However, divorce attorneys have looked into the paperwork and claimed it may have been a ploy to protect their assets against lawsuits in civil court as reported by Star Tribune. Judge Juanita Freeman wrote in her ruling back in October that a “court has a duty to ensure that marriage dissolution agreements are fair and equitable. One badge of fraud is a party’s transfer of ‘substantially all’ of his or her assets.”

Attorney Marc Beyer stated due to the timing of the divorce filing, the court can suspect that there could be a possibility of fraud but it is still speculation.
“This is just speculation, but it’s possible that the [agreement] was intentionally drafted to get assets out of Chauvin’s name in anticipation of a civil judgment against him from the estate of George Floyd.

A MAGA fool at the Trump rally in D.C. (Nov. 14, 2020) – Twitter/Fifty Shades of Whey

*A supporter of outgoing President Donald Trump has gone viral for saying that George Floyd would be alive today had he just “behaved,” and that former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin should have kneeled on his neck “longer.”

“If he would’ve behaved from the get-go, and not try to pass false money, he’d still be alive today,” the man says to the person recording. “It’s not that hard to behave.”

The video was tweeted Sunday, Nov. 15, by Dave Pal, who runs the Twitter account Fifty Shades of Whey. The man, whose name isn’t known, is sporting a red “Trump 2020” visor over a wig. In a follow up tweet, Pal said that he was “last seen” at the “Million MAGA March” on Nov. 14 in Washington, D.C.

A man’s voice behind the camera asks the marcher if he is “OK” with the fact that Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.

“He should’ve done it f****** longer. He should’ve done it longer,” he says again on camera. “You need more?”

The videographer then says he is “flabbergasted” before filming stops.

Shemar Moore Insisted ‘S.W.A.T.’ Season Premiere Link to Death of George Floyd (Video)

*Tonight’s season premiere of “S.W.A.T.” takes on the police killings of African Americans as part of a systemic pattern, and you can thank star/executive producer Shemar Moore and executive producer Aaron Rahsaan Thomas for the choosing to focus on the subject matter.

“We’ve been successful for three years playing super-cops and entertaining folks,” Moore told the Associated Press. “For ‘S.W.A.T.’ to take on what’s been happening around this country, in the world, is very brave and very bold.”

Thomas said it’s a step toward fulfilling the vision for the series he co-created with Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”). It’s a reboot of the 1975-76 series with Steve Forrest as Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, head of a mostly white SWAT unit. This time around, Hondo is an LA-born African American striving to uphold the law and connect his multiethnic team with the community it serves.

The episode, notes The AP, “is one answer to whether network TV dramas, ever reliant on law enforcement officers as unalloyed heroes, can reflect opposing views as the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others drive demands for systemic change in police practices.”

The “S.W.A.T.” story line is directly linked to Floyd’s death last May while in the custody of Minneapolis police. Watch the promo above.

The episode airs 9 p.m. EST Wednesday on CBS.
