Maryland Family Tells Lester Holt They See Similarities In The Death Of Their Son And George Floyd

by News Update

In September 2018, unarmed Black teenager Anton Black fled from police in Greensboro, Maryland. Black’s death was ruled an accident. One connection between George Floyd’s case and Anton Black’s was that Maryland’s former Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. David Fowler signed off on Anton’s autopsy report and also defended Derek Chauvin saying George Floyd’s cause of death was ‘undetermined.’ Now, one expert is raising the issue of in-custody police deaths and the lack of a central database to monitor how many people die in custody.

Black Americans are far too long suffering.

David Guzman August 6, 2022 - 8:01 AM

If you break the law, just own up to it and cooperate with the cops. That's what I did and I didn't get murdered. Maybe because I didn't feel entitled and try to wrestle with the cops. Like what do you think is going to happen?

Domestic terrorists purposefully infiltrate jobs such as coriners so they can cover up anything from poisoning to a 👮‍♀️ shooting to an ER dr neglecting care. I know because I survived something they did that I should've died from. I'm speaking for the dead because they can't. There's a whole underground network of nazi-like domestic terrorists and they all swarm these jobs. Anything that will allow them to coordinate a murder or to cover up one or both. I hope one day people investigate just how deep this goes before we see a repeat of wwII.

This is so heartbreaking! The medical examiner in this case is a joke because he was so biased in favor of the police.

When will people understand that running or eluding the 👮 increases your chances of getting hurt or even killed. I don't understand why the leaders of our community and the media don't talk about it.

Cops are not judge, jury and executioners.

Hey America don't feel to bad!! I live in Australia and I can honestly tell you cops here are just as bad, if not WORSE❗❗❗

Chase Jackson August 6, 2022 - 9:02 AM

If he were white the media wld have paid this death no mind and neither would dateline……At this point, the family has been visited by an ambulance chaser and sees a golden opportunity…..George Floyd was cold-blooded murderer but what was NEVER made clear to the public is Floyd and the arresting officer shared a sour history/relationship….Trump's advisors begged him to address the nation and clarify this to the protesters, but he refused. This death was a tragic accident that the victim played a crucial role…..Sadly even with the deaths of these many young black men by police officers throughout the country, NONE of the Civil Rights Leaders or the BLM founders have made NO efforts to effectively combat the issue at hand. Make a public service video with the goal of educating these young men b/c they treat the police with 0 respect b/c they see no difference btwn them and men/women in blue….Educate them that there is a significant difference and explain the difference….what should they do when stopped by a police officer and what action they should take if they believe their rights have been violated.

Don Nefasto August 6, 2022 - 11:42 AM

Arrogant try to tell law enforcement how the law should be applied? YOU GOT WHAT YOU ASKED FOR. just hope that family don't get a single penny.

Jeffrey Gortz August 6, 2022 - 12:09 PM

There you go again nbc stoking more racial divide , black ran from police , locked himself in a car , resisted arrest and died from a heart problem . Any person whatever race you are , don't run from the cops , obey their commands and you will live to see another day !!!!! No money for the family ………
