Who is Casey? Trump supporter says George Floyd couldn't have died from Derek Chauvin's kneeling in TikTok video
The TikToker said in a 31-second video that she likes to 'piss off liberals' and wouls find a cop who would kneel on her neck
It’s just over a month before the first death anniversary of George Floyd is here. The US in particular and the world, in general, have seen fierce protests over the brutal end the Black man met under the pressing knee of a police officer in Minneapolis. However, not all are yet convinced over the fact that Floyd could have died in the way he did.
Recently, a video has surfaced showing a supporter of former President Donald Trump saying Floyd was not killed by the cop’s knee pressing his neck. In the video, the woman named Casey, who is found at the wheels of a car, mocks the liberals over Floyd’s death. “I’m going to find a police officer and have him do to me what he did to George Floyd just so I can prove to all y’all stupid heads that he died from the drugs,” the woman was found saying in the video which was reshared on Twitter.
Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who kneeled on Floyd’s neck, is currently undergoing a trial on murder charges. According to the New York Times, cardiologist Dr Jonathan Rich said as an expert witness on Day 11 of Chauvin’s trial that Floyd’s death was preventable and happened because of low oxygen levels caused by restraint. While a toxicology report found fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system, Rich is among the many medical expert witnesses who feel Floyd did not die because of drug overdose or heart attack.
The NYT also cited Dr Bill Smock, the surgeon for the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department who said: “That is not a fentanyl overdose. That is somebody begging to breathe.”
TikToker likes to 'piss off liberals'
But Casey, who makes TikTok videos and has an account named @patriot_party08, said she likes to “piss off liberals”. “The knee isn’t strong enough to do what y’all think happened,” she added. Casey was blasted on Twitter for her remarks with people roasting her over her lack of expertise. One also called her an “ignorant racist” over her remarks on Floyd’s death.
There were also other videos that showed Casey, with her child sitting in the car’s rear seat, saying Black people are not in danger and that more White people were killed by the cops than Blacks. “If you have to put a color before ‘Lives Matter,’ that makes you racist,” she said in one clip.
