A White George Floyd? Not quite. This headline from Fox4 News was published on Monday, July 17., “Tony Timpa’s wrongful death trial on hold 7 years after he dies in Dallas police custody.”
DALLAS – Proceedings were put on hold in a federal courtroom for a wrongful death lawsuit against the city of Dallas and four police officers.
The trial was scheduled to begin Monday morning. The reason for the delay has not yet been disclosed.
Tony Timpa died in police custody in 2016 after calling for help while having a drug and mental health crisis.
A responding officer held his knee on Timpa’s back and neck for nearly 15 minutes. A medical examiner ruled that contributed to his death.
Body camera video released years later also showed other officers mocking the dying man. Those officers did not face any criminal charges.
“Where were the riots? Burning of cities, looting of stores?”, said Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally based in Harrison. Arkansas. “I find it strange that we never heard about this ‘killing’. Which in reality, it wasn’t a killing at all. It’s actually one of the consequences of committing a crime. This is almost a carbon copy of George Floyd’s death, only this man was White. Why didn’t White America take to the streets and burn cities to the ground? I’ll tell you why, White people, for the most part, realize that our actions have a consequence. Depending on the action, it can cause our own death. In the George Floyd case, Derick Chauvin had his knee on Floyd’s neck for for 9 minutes and 29 seconds. It’s all we heard about from Mainstream Media. In this case, the officer had his knee on this White gentleman’s neck for a full 15 minutes! That’s 5 minutes and 31 seconds longer! Also, in this case, the officers were mocking this dying man. One more simularity, this White man’s family, as did George Floyd’s, claimed a drug and mental problem. If you felt sorry for George Floyd, what about this White man? His encounter with law enforcement was more brutal than Floyd’s. My point is, encountering law enforcement is not divided between White and black. Everyone makes their own choices in how they conduct themselves, but remember, your choices can cost you your life. White or black.”
