    As if we didn't have enough to contend with trying to get to the truth now its starting to generate fake videos that are so real you can't tell them from the real thing.

    Deepfakes Are Going To Wreak Havoc On Society. We Are Not Prepared.

    This has been brewing for a while.
    Soon, nobody will ever know the real story about anything.
    Truth has become utterly relative.
    Sad days.

    Maybe this whole George Floyd thing was one of them.

    This is some absolutely scary stuff.
    This is EXACTLY what's going to happen.
    So many of us watch that video and think "man, this cop is awfully calm and cool while he's doing this" We also think "why is everybody else (in the video) not reacting?"
    Maybe it was footage of a regular arrest, where kneeling on someone's neck/shoulder/head to keep them from resisting was appropriate. A video where nobody was hurt.
    Then someone edited in the whole death part.
    Now everybody appears to be going about their business normally, because it WAS normal. The death was added in after the fact.
    Seems also that anybody who was warning about potential harm was off camera....

    One good thing about watching News on TV: When the Anchor or Reporter speak, you can easily tell when they are lying - their lips move. Dead give away every time. Just watch their lips. If they start to move you know they are lying to you.

    The story about that *Policeman* in Minneapolis - I believe it happened. It wasn't an accident from what I saw. There are good and there are bad people in every occupation. This guy shouldn't have been hired into the job he had. The suspect quit moving and 'resisting' - that was when it should have ended.

    The MSM are unscrupulous enough they would use it without a thought to get their point across.

    It happened. I would really like to see what happened prior to the videos. Why was he being arrested/detained? Was he resisting or obstructing the police?

    The original arrest reason was forgery, apparently he had a bogus $20 bill. Last I heard, forgery was a problem for the secret service.

    I saw one article that said he had fake ID also. Don't know where it went.

    That wouldn't be forgery, wouldn't it be counterfeiting?

    You are correct. The news kept saying in was over a fake $20.
