The head of the Minneapolis police union says George Floyd’s “violent criminal history” needs to be remembered and that the protests over his death are the work of a “terrorist movement.”

“What is not being told is the violent criminal history of George Floyd. The media will not air this,” police union president Bob Kroll told his members in a letter posted Monday on Twitter.

Floyd had landed five years behind bars in 2009 for an assault and robbery two years earlier, and before that, had been convicted of charges ranging from theft with a firearm to drugs, the Daily Mail reported.

Floyd died last week after a white cop kneeled on the 46-year-old black man’s neck for nearly 9 minutes, a shocking incident that was caught on video and is sparking widespread violent protests, including in New York City. Floyd had allegedly just tried to pass a phony $20 bill before he died.

“This terrorist movement that is currently occurring was a long time build up which dates back years,” Kroll said in his letter of the protests, adding that some of his city’s issues exist because Minneapolis leaders have been “minimizing the size of our police force and diverting funds to community activists with an anti-police agenda.

“Our chief requested 400 more officers and was flatly denied any. This is what led to this record breaking riot,” he said.

The union chief vowed that his organization would help the cop accused of killing Floyd, now-fired Officer Derek Chauvin, and three other officers who were at the scene and are being investigated.

“I’ve worked with the four defense attorneys that are representing each of our four terminated individuals under criminal investigation, in addition with our labor attorneys to fight for their jobs. They were terminated without due process,” Kroll wrote.

    Sometimes a Person’s reputation gives the Person difficulty. Not supporting death; just saying what is some of the truth.

    Is it possible the three Police Officers were taking extra care because the Officer now charged with Murder said something like; be careful with this Guy; I have worked with him and ???? Or this Guy has done time for violence. ???

    Like a lot of the other blacks killed by police/Zimmerman the media portrays them as halo wearing saints and the devils had to take their lives because of their good works,

  • He was prone, manacled with 175 lbs. of pressure being applied to his carotid artery for eight minuets. How is his criminal history is relevant?

    The TRUTH shall set us all FREE!

    Lies only create more chaos and feed the flames of unfairness.

    A system must apply equally to all or apply to NONE!

    No matter his dirty past, he does not deserve the type of barbaric and wicked death those asshole cops meted on him. I condemn the violent riots but I stand with the peaceful rioters.

    I know that the worst of riots will still come in the future. If they fail to address some ugly trends America will be burnt down one day.
