Black Lives Matter protester tests positive for Coronavirus after going to rally attended by 10,000 people in Australia

A Black Lives Matter protester has tested positive for Coronavirus after attending a rally attended by 10,000 people in Melbourne, sparking fears of second wave of the virus in Australia.
 
The man in his 30s reportedly marched with thousands through the city on Saturday and developed symptoms 24 hours later despite wearing a mask. 
 
Health officials fear he may have passed the virus to many others.
 
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said the case could be the start of a mass outbreak. 'This realises our worst fears,' he told Sydney radio 2GB. 'Now we could slip back into a second wave like other countries have.' 
 
 Victoria's Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said it was unlikely the man contracted the virus at the protest because it was too soon for him to start showing symptoms. 
 
'This case is unlikely to have been acquired at the protest but we were all concerned about the possibility of transmission occurring at that protest,' he said.
 
'It's obviously helpful that the individual wore a mask but masks are not 100 percent protection.' 
 
Dr. Sutton, who warned people not to attend Saturday's rally, also urged people not to gather in groups larger than 20.
 
'We don't want people gathering in groups larger than 20 in Victoria because of the risk to others. It is my strong recommendation not to go and it is the law,' he said.  
 
 
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg also condemned the protesters, saying: 'People shouldn't have gathered in those numbers for those rallies. In doing so, they put the broader community's health at risk. 
'That was the obvious message from the medical experts about those rallies. And it was very unfortunate that they proceeded in the way that that did.'  
 
Speaking this morning, Prime Minister Scott Morrison slammed the protesters and said he wants anyone attending future rallies to be charged with breaking public health orders.
 
'I think they should. I mean, I really do think they should, because they'll be kind of a double standard here,' he told Melbourne radio 3AW.
 
'I think the issues of last weekend were very difficult, but I think people carrying it on now, it's not about that.
 
'It's about people pushing a whole bunch of other barrows now, and it puts others lives and livelihoods at risk.'
 
Mr. Morrison added: 'I saw some people say, when they attended this rally, 'oh I knew the risk I was taking by attending'. 
 
'They were talking about themselves, they weren't talking about the Australians who weren't there, you know, millions of quiet Australians who have done the right thing.' 
 
'By all means, raise your issue. But by doing this, they have put the whole track to recovery at risk,' he told Sydney radio 2GB.
 
As state leaders face growing calls to lift more restrictions, Mr Morrison said: 'The rally last weekend is the only legitimate blocker.'  
 
Deputy chief medical officer Professor Michael Kidd said it was too early to tell if the protests will cause a spike.
 
'The incubation period for COVID-19 is five to seven days, up to 14 days. So we will only start seeing new cases occurring if that transmission had occurred on the weekend over the days ahead,' he told ABC News this morning.
 
'We're continuing to be very cautious and obviously we need to see what happens over the next few days.'

New video shows cop Tou Thao ignoring bystanders' pleas to save George Floyd’s life as white cop Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck




[Image: 5ee67d39533fe.PNG]


This is the shocking moment Minneapolis officer Tou Thao was seen ignoring pleas for help from bystanders as white cop Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd's neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds.

The video was shared on Sunday morning by Ben Crump, a civil rights attorney representing Floyd's family. 


'This is beyond disturbing, even harder to watch than the first video,' Crump warned in the caption of the video. 


Crump then wrote: 'Tou Thao stood guard as Derek Chauvin MURDERED George Floyd ... while witnesses of the execution tried to stand up for JUSTICE, tried to save George's life!

 
'The protest of those bystanders, who refused to just stand by and let it happen, has reverberated around the world — fueling our protest against injustice and police brutality!! 8 minutes 46 seconds.'

'The four ex-officers MUST be convicted of MURDER for this hideous atrocity! They MUST all be held accountable!!'

 

 
In the video, witnesses can be heard urging Thao to stop Chauvin as they repeatedly shout "check his pulse" and call the police officer a "bum."

Thao, who can be seen standing on the sidewalk nearby his former colleague Chauvin tries to move people away from the scene  by telling them to "Step back on the sidewalk,"  as one concerned bystander pointed out that "the man ain't moved yet, bro, the man continued. 'He has not moved not one time!'

The man then asked Thao: 'You’re going to let him kill that man in front of you?' 
A woman then yelled: 'Tell me what his pulse is right now!' 
Another woman is heard asking in the background: 'Did they just f**king kill him?' 
As a crowd gathered, others are heard shouting, 'Get off of his neck!' and 'He’s not moving!'  
 
Despite their pleas for help, Thao did nothing to try to get Chauvin off Floyd's neck. 
 
Paramedics later arrived at the scene and lifted Floyd's lifeless body off the pavement and onto a stretcher. 
 
Tou Thou, Thomas Kiernan Lane and J Alexander Kueng have all been fired from the police department. They have also been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder. 
 

The main suspect, Derek Chauvin who knelt on his neck was fired from the Minneapolis Police Department and arrested just days after Floyd's death. He was initially charged with third-degree murder before that charge was upgraded to second-degree murder.

 
George Floyd was laid to rest last Tuesday in his hometown in Houston, Texas.

Posting on Twitter. She wrote; "Folks, last night I was able to review the photos I took in Minneapolis for the first time.
Here are the images of the minutes leading up to when I was shot in the eye:"

According to jail records, Chauvin, 44, and Thao, 34, have been in custody since their arrest, while Lane, 37, and Kueng, 26, were released on conditional bond.

Four ex-Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd's killing appear in court (Photos)





[Image: 5efa535aea4a1.jpg]


The four former Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd's killing appeared before a judge on Monday, June 29.
 
Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas Lane, who are accused of aiding and abetting in Floyd's death, appeared before Judge Peter Cahill on Monday afternoon in a courtroom at the Hennepin County Jail in downtown Minneapolis. They were accompanied by their defense attorneys.

As for Derek Chauvin, who is charged with 2nd-degree murder and 2nd-degree manslaughter in the case, he appeared via video monitor from the prison where he’s being held.
 
Prosecutors disclosed that they have gathered about 8,000 pieces of evidence and continue to gather more.
 
Thao's attorney, Robert Matthew Paule, provided the following statement on Monday:
[Image: 5efa543e85c69.jpg]
 
"I have not commented publically in any regard... I've done so out of respect for Mr. Floyd and his family, I'm going to continue to do that. The judge today issued an order telling the litigants, whom I'm one, that we're not to comment on the evidence, what we see as the merits to the case, or a person's guilt or innocence... so I'm not going to do that."
 
He later added, "my condolences to Mr. Floyd and his family, the death of a loved one is a very sad thing even under the best of circumstances."
 
District Judge Peter A. Cahill warned all parties to stop talking about the case publicly and threatened a gag order or a possible change in venue for the trials if heavy pre-trial publicity continues.
 
"The court is not going to be happy about hearing about the case in three areas: media, evidence and guilt or innocence," Cahill said.
 
He asked Assistant Attorney General Matthew Frank to use his influence to keep public officials silent, warning that if they continued to discuss it publicly, he likely would "have to pull (trials) out of Hennepin County and they need to be aware of that."
 
Judge Cahill also stated he’s also awaiting motions on whether the defendants will be tried separately or together in a joint trial. 
 
The next court appearance for the ex-officers was set for September with a tentative trial date set for March 8, 2021.
 
According to jail records, Chauvin, 44, and Thao, 34, have been in custody since their arrest, while Lane, 37, and Kueng, 26, were released on conditional bond.
