Ken Cuccinelli believes even if George Floyd had been white his life would not have been spared

Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli said Sunday that he does not believe that George Floyd's life would have been spared if he were white.

Floyd, a black man, was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis last month. His death has sparked nationwide protests against racism and police violence.

Asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer if he thought Floyd would still be alive if he were white, Cuccinelli said, "No, I don't think he would."

"What I heard in that eight-and-a-half minute clip was someone who was a bully, who is abusing his position of authority and power in the law," Cuccinelli said in reference to a video of Floyd's death.

hence, no factor of racism involved in the murder.

Well, THAT certainly makes a difference, doesn't it?

Does anyone have stats on people who died while being arrested or after arrest by race? Such as chokeholds or shot while handcuffed.

The store that called the cops over an alleged $20 bill said:
- Getting counterfeits has happened in the past.
- When it happens it is their POLICY to call the police.
- The city/state has a law on the books about KNOWINGLY passing counterfeit money.

So there must be records.

How many calls?
How many arrests?
How many arrested were white?
How many arrested were non-white?
How many wound up dead?
Of the dead how many were white?

Care to meet me Vegas and put it all on the line on the answer to that one...?
