If you’re considering a career in law enforcement in today’s world, that’s certainly commendable, but it might not necessarily be the wisest or safest choice. In Biden’s America, police officers find themselves facing vilification and condemnation for carrying out their job duties, and in some cases, even having their funding stripped away. The incident surrounding the arrest of George Floyd serves as a stark reminder — a situation that ignited widespread unrest across the nation. Regardless of your stance on Floyd’s arrest and death, one cannot deny the fact that the entire situation was politicized and spiraled out of control. Things got so crazy that government officials portrayed a career criminal, who once stuck a loaded gun into a pregnant woman’s belly, as some virtuous “saintly” figure, complete with a extravagant gold coffin and an opulent funeral fit for a king. And what happened to one of the officers, who was basically a “bystander” while all the action was going down, is a travesty of social justice, which is what our court system is now — complete with activist judges. Tou Thao, who was holding back crowd from bum-rushing a crime scene, was just sentenced to 5-years hard time in prison for simply doing his job.


Former Minneapolis police officer Tou Thao was sentenced on Monday to 4-3/4 years in prison for aiding and abetting manslaughter in the 2020 killing of George Floyd, a Black man whose neck was pinned to the ground by another officer’s knee during a botched arrest.

The sentence, meted out by Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill, was more than the 4-1/4 years requested by Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison.

“I was hoping for a little more remorse, regret, acknowledgment of some responsibility,” Cahill said before handing down the sentence.

The sentence will run concurrently with the 3-1/2 years Thao previously received on a federal conviction of violating Floyd’s civil rights.

Cahill in May found Thao guilty of one count of aiding and abetting manslaughter in the second degree for his role in Floyd’s death. Thao, a nine-year veteran of the police force, was the fourth and final officer sentenced in the killing.

“I didn’t intend on doing any malice or … try hurt anyone. That was never my intent. I did the best that I thought I could,” Thao said in court before he was sentenced.

Thao showed dignity, declaring, “I will not be a Judas nor join a mob in self-preservation or betray my God” after explaining that he did not commit the crimes. The entire thing was lost on the midwit dog judge overseeing the whole sick charade.

Something about casting pearls before swine.

Sadly, this was nothing more than another typical liberal-run show trial. This ex-officer, who was doing his duty according to his training, found himself not only losing his career but also his reputation. Now, he faces the loss of his freedom, and the potential repercussions behind bars are anyone’s gruesome guess. The sad reality is this: a good man is going to prison because a drug-addicted career criminal with a bad heart resisted arrest. Honestly, it’s a wonder why anybody would want to become a police officer these days.
