LAPD Passes Around Valentines Card with Photo of George Floyd Captioned “You Take My Breath Away”


Feb 15, 2021

Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers are receiving backlash for reportedly passing around a Valentine’s Day graphic mocking George Floyd’s death.

The graphic shows a photo of George Floyd with the caption “You take my breath away.”

Floyd died on May 25 after ex-officer Derek Chauvin pinned his knee on Floyd’s neck for over eight minutes as Floyd said, “I can’t breathe.”

The image was allegedly shared around the police department. One officer reported it to officials. The department opened an internal investigation in response.

“Our investigation is to determine the accuracy of the allegations while also reinforcing our zero-tolerance for anything with racist views,” Police Chief Michel Moore told the Los Angeles Times.

The department publicly addressed the incident on Facebook and Twitter, saying there are also allegations the image was created by a department employee.

LAPD “has not identified any actual postings in the workplace or identified that it was in fact our department employee who created the image.”

The department also said it has “raised the apparent existence of the image and directed commands to survey the worksites for it.”

  1. Oh, that’s right. Continue knocking the cops and stir up some more civil unrest. You know, enough is enough. I think I am beginning to somewhat put credence in claims that the media is fueling the fires in America.

  2. I will never understand why anyone would want to immortalize somebody who took an overdose. What a moron. Then put it on Valentines Day cards, a time for love. This isn’t love, it’s the marxist’s idea and they don’t spread love, but hate.

  3. I don’t give him any kind of praise nothing but a thug & a drug addict. WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩…

    1. fuck is wrong with u, he was murdered by a cop and now they passing this kind of shit around and u saying that this is good and he was a piece of shit? lmao u should look at urself u emotionless bitch.

    2. Couldn’t agree more Pat ! Hr is nothing more than an excuse to raise hell , loot and destroy working peoples property.

  4. No matter what he was he didn’t deserve to die on a street with someone kneeling on him.
