I have every sympathy with the BLM campaign. As I’ve said before , all lives matter equally. I just think it’s unfortunate that they chose George Floyd as the horse to hitch it to. The sooner they dissociate the movement from this individual the better!

The other side of George Floyd:
George Floyd's ministry friends say he was their 'OG,' a 'man of peace'

Liza Vandenboom

(Religion Unplugged) — Roaming through the Cuney Homes Projects in Houston, Texas, a predominantly African American neighborhood, Pastor Patrick “PT” Ngwolo of the church Resurrection Houston went looking for disciples. Flyers in hand, he walked the streets promoting a coming concert featuring the Christian rap artists Reconcile and Corey Paul.

At the show, one man loomed tall over the crowd. The pastors flocked to him.

“It was Big Floyd,” Ngwolo said. “He stands out in the crowd.”
...
“We wanted to do aggressive, actual, life-on-life discipleship in this particular neighborhood,” Ngwolo said. “He was like the OG of the neighborhood and made sure that we were welcomed in ... in the Bible we call it a ‘person of peace.’ He helped us and allowed us to operate in his neighborhood.”

Floyd was well-connected and well-respected in the area, and he eagerly threw his reputation and his labor into the initiative.

The local basketball court became hallowed ground, the premises for “Church in the Bricks.” Floyd became a central figure of the Christian outreach program, Ngwolo said.

“Everything from speakers to chairs, to tables, everything had to be loaded from one location to the next,” said Corey Paul, one of Floyd’s partners in ministry. Floyd volunteered to set up and tear down for ministry events on the court, sometimes lugging 30 chairs at a time, his friends said.

Reconcile recalled Floyd helping him lug a large baptismal pool filled with water onto the court.

“It was basically a horse trough,” Ngwolo said.

At one of these neighborhood outreaches, in the summer of 2015, Floyd’s friend Nijalon Dunn was baptized.

“That experience, it was monumental,” Dunn said. “We talk about Big Floyd being OG, a person of peace, a gatekeeper. He empowered us. He was someone from the community who empowered brothers and sisters from outside to usher the gospel in. To be able to be baptized in a place like Cuney Homes, it was a sign of hope.”

Just released (some of) the officers Body Camera footage of this - - -

VERY TROUBLESOME READING THE TRANSCRIPT and again reviewing the video !!!

All this over an alleged counterfeit $20 bill - (a problem for the Feds - no so much local police)

Sickening and the hundreds of millions of dollars damage done as a result of overzealous police action igniting even more destruction world wide !

My view on this - It happened in my backyard a few miles away - - -
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !
