George Floyd a Victim of Injustice (continued)

  • George Floyd and Keven Chauvin may have had personal hatred from when they knew each other working as bouncers at the same discotheque.
  • Through the influence of Martin Luther King almost all Americans have accepted blacks as important to America.
  • The injustice of George Floyd is connected to the failure of the American educational system.

America is bouncing back from another traumatic crisis in its history the lockdown of its economy due to the Corona Pandemic. On the way to recovery of this crisis came the brutal murder of George Floyd by a white police officer causing violent rioting throughout America. The demonstrations were interwoven with violence. Corona Pandemic came naturally. In Corona there is no one to blame but God. The whole world reacted in the same way quarantine and lockdown. The murder of George Floyd done by a white police officer has sparked again in America hatred related to racism. The murder is called a racist act against the innocent black community.

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson of blessed memory attempted in his life to emphasize the importance of proper education to improve the future of America.

President Trump is looking to blame China for the outbreak of Corona. China closed its internal borders to protect its capital Beijing and the Communist Regime far earlier than it made public to the world of the dangers of Corona virus. In this way China was able to limit the effects of Corona to its nation; earlier than the rest of the nations of the world when Corona became a Pandemic. President Trump is demanding justice. China did not act justly. The world is still recovering from Corona Pandemic. China is already clean which is proof that they were negligent.

President Trump has broken off from WPO because he says that they are protecting China from blame for Corona.  Blaming China for injustice can become much more complicated than blaming the policemen for manslaughter.  To blame China for negligence will entail taking China to the international courts. The court case can determine the facts. Determining whether Corona was produced in the virology lab or not may is also a factor in this law case. Either way the Pandemic Corona which originated in China was an accident. The International court will determine if there was negligence and to what extent.

China is a world power. China economy is dependent on the whole world. Chinese economy has also been locked down by Corona. Corona will not create a World War which would be much more damaging than the virus. China may or not agree to pay damages an enormous sum of money. America can do economically without China; but not the rest of the world. America places sanctions on various countries because it is a world economic power. Sanctions are the peaceful way of showing opposition and not through military force.

Derek Chauvin brutally killed George Floyd. The murder was shown on video. Eight minutes Derek Chauvin had his knee on the throat of George Floyd. He was handcuffed so the police were no longer in danger from George. George initially was dangerous to the police. He committed a crime. He had a jail sentence. He is tall and powerful. After being handcuffed, he was no longer dangerous. He may have invoked special hatred between Derek Chauvin and him before this event when they were working together as bouncers in a discotheque. Derek Chauvin lost his head and put his whole future life in danger by committing manslaughter.

An attempted assassination was made on the life of President Ronald Regan in 1981. The assailant was John Hinkley a white American. The motive was that he was obsessed by Jodie Foster after watching her in a movie Taxi Driver after which he became obsessed to receive her attention. Jodie Foster in this movie played the part of a 12 year old child prostitute. Toward the end of the movie Travis Bickle who was obsessed by protecting this young girl attempts to assassinate a United State senator who is running for president. After the movie Hinkley became obsessed with Jodie Foster following her around the country trying to get her attention.

Reverend Martin Luther King succeeded to bridge the gap between Whites and Blacks in America. Most of the friction between whites and blacks in America stems from political liberal pressures.

The motivation of Derek Chauvin in killing George Floyd and risking his whole life future is still unknown. The demonstrations assumed that the killing was based on racism discrimination against blacks. Derek Chauvin knew George Floyd from before he met him on the job as a policeman and killed him brutally. They both worked as bouncers in a discotheque. George Floyd left the job due to Corona lockdown. Derek Chauvin left the job earlier to work in the police force. The motivation of the crime of Derek Chauvin is not completely clear. The hatred between them may have begun while they were on the job in the discotheque. This type of hatred in which a person is willing to give up his whole future may have been over a girl which they both were involved with at the disco.

O.J. Simpson a famous NFL running back was tried for the murder of his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her boyfriend Ron Goldman. Simpson was acquitted of the murders in criminal court but was later found responsible for both deaths in a civil trial. He was later convicted of felonies of armed robbery and kidnapping and served a jail sentence for nine years and was released in 2017.

George Floyd was a tight end but never reached professional football. Six foot six inches he may have been a candidate for professional sports like is the dream of many black Americans who do not succeed to make the big money. Conflicts which O.J. Simpson had which caused him to be convicted even after a successful career are an example of the need for justice for George Floyd.  The need for justice for George Floyd examining all the facts is not only connected to racism.  It is connected to education. The Educational School system in America has not succeeded to make America great as was the motto of President Trump throughout his term in office from 2016.

Derek Chauvin also grew up in America. He is also a victim of the injustice of the educational system in America. John Hinckley who attempted to assassinate President Ronald Regan who killed and injured several others is the victim of injustice of American education. Connecting the killing of George Floyd only to racism will never solve the problems within the American Society.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Schneerson of blessed memory whose home location of Lubavitch Chabad Chassidism in Crown Heights, Brooklyn attempted to solve the injustices in America after the assassination attempt on President Regan. In a letter to Ronald Regan he connected this assassination attempt and other atrocities committed in America to the injustice of American Education. In 1978 at the time of President Carter the birthday of the Rebbe was designated as Education and Sharing Day, USA. Education and Sharing Day calls for increased focus on education, and represents the lifelong efforts of the Rebbe for education.

After the attempted assassination of President Regan the Rebbe wrote to Ronald Regan a lengthy letter. The letter is commented on by Rabbi Manis Friedman one of his important representatives in Minnesota.

Following the directions of the Rebbe may be able to limit or even end these atrocities which are a blemish on America. The correction of the injustice of George Floyd does not come from violent demonstrations. Violent demonstration once again show how ignorance is one of the major problems in America. Liberalism has gone wild in America. Democracy is here to stay but like a new born child it needs further development to reach its perfection. Democracy is the best vehicle for world peace. However it has internal problems which sometimes interfere with domestic tranquility. People need a strong government. Democracy offers human rights which are not offered by dictatorships. Human rights should not interfere with the work of leaders of democratic nations to maintain law and order.
