12. I didn't say "successfully"readjusting.

Guess he thought it was worth a shot since he had so much "time to kill"........literally.

5. He had black gloves

Itís hard to tell whether he has his hand in his pocket or just resting on his thigh.

6. I don't think it was.

Watching earlier, he's pulling on black gloves. I think it just looks like he has his hands in his pockets because the color of the gloves matches his pants (so what looks like the edge of his pants pockets is really the edge of his gloves).

8. At first I thought so too.

On closer look it was resting nonchalantly on his left thigh.

16. I think so too.

 

Actually worse, because I think he was using it to further torque the pressure on that poor manís neck. I saw that video twice. I just cannot watch it. It was intentional murder. Something is very wrong with that ex-cop.

18. That is a possibility as well.

It was definitely on his thigh and not his pocket.

His eyes really told it all, crazed and evil. He knew what he was doing and dared anyone to stop him.

Watch the video closely - that is what he was doing

15. I saw it very clearly and watched closely and yes, this is what he was doing

Had a few people study the video again and look closely and they said they saw that and it hadnít occurred to them but upon watching closer that was what he was doing.

He DELIBERATELY was trying to apply as much possible pressure to George Floydís neck...

19. In another thread someone mentioned

that it is a known technique to increase the pressure that you are already applying with your knee.
At the very least, it is clear that there is more pressure/weight when the hands are up, maybe even pressing down, instead of them being on the ground or the body which would distribute the weight. I'd assume for balance issues, it'd be more comfortable to use your hands when you are in such a position.
