As you view the crime in progress above, consider the 'Statement of Probable Cause' (27-CR-20-12646) below, which leaves no doubt that Floyd had been handcuffed and secured in the squad car, before he was pulled back out of the squad car and forced with brutality onto the pavement.
Floyd was then restrained by three police officers, one of whom pressed his knee onto Floyd's neck for eight-minutes and 46 seconds and suffocated Floyd to death.
The name of George Floyd will live on in the history of the United States. George Floyd lost his life at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers. One of whom pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, who was laying on the ground and handcuffed, until the officer had choked him to death, and continued to choke Floyd for several minutes after another police officer on the screen inform him that Floyd no longer had a pulse.
True to form, the national political correspondent, Stephan J Kornacki, hosting a segment of the 1 June 2020 MSNBC nightly news, while showing a video of Attorney General Bill Barr well nestled behind a column of military police and Secret Service personnel to keep him a far away from the protesters as possible, Kornacki states that Bill Barr had walked through the crowd of protesters. Perhaps Kornacki was employing his screenwriting skills, because his statement was blatantly false, untrue.
That description of Bill Barr as walking through the crowd of protesters in Lafayette Park opposite 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, when he absolutely did not, is indicative of the 25 minute coverage of crowd activity to 5 minute coverage of the incidents that brought hundreds of thousands of people to protest in cities around the globe, that has characterized MSNBC's coverage of the police rage murder of Floyd.

Statement above is a summation of the 11 'witnesses' interviewed by the lead detective at the scene shortly after Arbery was corralled and shot to death. "Roddy" is Cuomo's guest interviewee, and the statement shows conclusively that Cuomo's guest, who videoed the chase, was an active participant in the incident, which resulted in homicide.
... the most trusted name in news
The now infamous 36-second video made by the third, and yet to be, but soon to be indicted perpetrator of the cold-blooded murder of Ahmaud Arbery, on the afternoon of the 23rd of February in Brunswick, Georgia, had been doctored deceptively and is only a segment of the original video. And yet, and in spite of the video having been aired on multiple broadcast news networks, not one of them chose to acknowledge that fact.
Chris Cuomo, the broadcaster that attempted to crown his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, as 'America's governor', for his neolithically incompetent handing of the COVID-19 epidemic in New York, graced his hour-long show with the unindicted co-conspirator in the 'Georgia-jogger murder case', and his legal representative.
In the original detective's report of his interviews with 11 witnesses to the incident, two of the witnesses identified in his report are in fact perpetrators, included the maker of the video of the incident, who stated that he had personally attempted to physically block the victim during the chase, when he was interviewed at the scene of the crime.
The lead detective on the case then took his report to the local district attorney and asked for an indictment. The district attorney refused to indict the accused, citing what she called insufficient evidence to indict the shooter or his accomplices.
What the district attorney failed to disclose to the lead detective was her long professional and personal relationship with the shooter, his son and Cuomo's guest. In fact and in law, the district attorney was duty and honor bound to recuse herself because of her long professional and personal relationship with the accused. She did not, and is still in her position, when she should have been immediately placed on administrative leave, pending an investigation.
After nearly two weeks she passed the case to another member of the district attorney's staff, who also had relations with the accused, and this pattern continued for nearly 10 weeks.
Cuomo was aware of all of this information.
And now, as of Sunday, 17 May, CNN has gone directly to the issue of how the defendants may mount their defense, without any mention of the ten-week long legacy of malpractice in the district attorney's office. At least, they are airing a longer portion of the video, which clearly shows that the video was made from the car the unindicted co-conspirator was driving while chasing down and attempting to corner, the victim.
Cuomo, who attended law school, knows that the first and cardinal principle of American jurisprudence, even in Dixie, is based on fair and impartial due process.
74 days passed from the date of the homicide on the 23rd of February, until there was an arrest in the Georgia jogger murder case, and the actions of member's of the district attorney office illustrate a wanton disregard for legal as well as investigative processes.
For example, try to find a case where within days of the incident there was not a public announcement by authorities of whether there was alcohol or drugs found in blood sample taken of from both the victim(s) and the perpetrator(s) of a crime. This is a routine matter and reporters make it a standard feature of the initial reporting of a crime.
Remember that two of the three active participants in the chase and murder of Arbery were initially interviewed as witnesses, including the pistol toting individual in the bed of the pickup truck, and the 'attempted to block him which was unsuccessful' video maker.
As fortune would have it, police body cams speak volumes as to the sobriety of the assailants. Perhaps, Chris Cuomo will address this issue in a subsequent broadcast.
Why state authorities have not gone in and taken over completely the entire operation of the local police and prosecutor's office is a matter that will occupy American Jurisprudence for years into the future. As will a thorough review of all the cases the suspects in this case have been involved in as investigators and witnesses.
The ghosts of Chicago have been revived, and we can but hope that aside from the lives ruined by highly questionable actions by local police and prosecutors, all of their victims are still alive to receive their due exhortations.
But it is obvious that Chris Cuomo would not know anything about that.
