Let Us Find The Root Causes
Former Vice President Joe Biden says there is “absolutely” systemic racism in law enforcement…
Democrats kneel in honor and mourn deceased convicted felon George Floyd. Fun fact you may not know: Mr. Floyd had a lengthy criminal record including an aggravated robbery in 2007 in which he pressed a gun against a woman’s stomach during a home invasion. That woman is no relation to any of the kneelers.
The final straw for Floyd came after serving five years in prison in 2009 for aggravated assault stemming from a robbery in 2007 where he entered a woman’s home, pressed a gun into her stomach and searched the home for drugs and money, according to court records.
Floyd pleaded guilty to the robbery where another suspect posed as a worker for the local water department, wearing a blue uniform in an attempt to gain access to the woman’s home, according to the charging document.
But when the woman opened the door, she realized he was not with the water department and attempted to close the door, leading to a struggle.
At that time, a Ford Explorer pulled up to the home and five other males exited the car and went up to the front door.
The report states the largest of the group, who the victim later identified as Floyd, ‘forced his way inside the residence, placed a pistol against the complainant’s abdomen, and forced her into the living room area of the residence.
‘This large suspect then proceeded to search the residence while another armed suspect guarded the complainant, who was struck in the head and sides by this second armed suspect with his pistol while she screamed for help.’
Not finding any drugs or money at the house, the men took jewelry and the woman’s cell phone and fled in their car. A neighbor who witnessed the robbery took down the car’s license plate number.
Later, police tracked down the car and found Floyd behind the wheel. He was later identified by the woman as the large suspect who placed a gun against her stomach and forced her into her living room, the document states.
Floyd pleaded guilty to the first degree felony and was sentenced in April 2009 to five years in prison.
Prior to that, Floyd was sentenced to 10 months in state jail for possession of cocaine. He had been charged in December 2005 for having less than one gram of the controlled substance.
