This is the man whose death has caused mayhem throughout our country. Not exactly a role model for the young people who are protesting. The way he died was VERY wrong but what has transpired since is also wrong….
Subject: Fwd. : The real George Floyd
George Floyd wasn’t innocent. This is his criminal record. At least what I could find – there’s probably more. You won’t find this in the MSM (including FOX). They want to portray this thug as an innocent upstanding citizen. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It’s a tragedy that he died while committing another crime (passing counterfeit bills and public disorderly conduct), but he is definitely not a totally innocent citizen that was intentionally “murdered” by racist police.
George Floyd moved to Minnesota after being released from prison in Texas.
The 46-year-old moved to the city in 2014 and worked as a bouncer at a local bar.
First being arrested in his 20s for theft and then a later arrest for armed robbery
Floyd was arrested in April 2002 for criminal trespassing and was sentenced to 30 days in jail
Floyd had been sentenced to five years in prison in 2009 for aggravated assault stemming from a robbery where Floyd entered a woman’s home, pointed a gun at 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.
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.
Floyd had two other cocaine offenses, receiving an eight month-sentence stemming from an October 2002 arrest and was sentenced to 10 months from a 2004 arrest.
Floyd had at least five stints in jail. In one of the charging documents, officials noted Floyd had two convictions in the 1990s for theft and delivery of a controlled substance.
He served time stemming from a charge of aggravated robbery with a firearm in August 1998
However, a few months later the charge was updated to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, amending the amount Floyd allegedly had to more than four grams of cocaine.
But according to court records, Floyd was able to have the charge reverted back to possession of cocaine less than a gram.
He did another stint for theft with a firearm in August 1998. He served 10 months at Harris County jail.
In one of the charging documents, officials noted Floyd had two convictions in the 1990s for theft and delivery of a controlled substance.
