for how long was he on the neck vs the shoulder? The bottom line is if its clear in the video that he put the knee on the neck and suffocated him, he is guilty. If he was only on the neck for a moment but mostly on the shoulder, then that is different story I would say.
He was on George Floyd's neck for all of the 9 and a half minutes, but even if he weren't it was testified that being on a prone positioned man's back while he is handcuffed behind his back is considered deadly force. The muscles needed to expand the chest are severely inhibited by that force.
Arming the public to stave off a government out of control is a false narrative. In really it boils down to you either love guns or you don't. The public will never be effective against a government out of control. The chances of you even being able to defend yourself in public is pretty iffy. Most public guns are not able to get control of situations as police fail at this often enough.
