    [–] Minneapolis PD officer Derek Chauvin killed a man in handcuffs yesterday. His name was George Floyd. DragonMomma420 0 points ago in pics

    Again the man said he could not breath. The cop should have moved off the guys neck. Period.

    Does not matter what you went through when you volunteered to be in that position (training and army) this man did not. The call was for a non-violent fraud case and George was unarmed.

    You may not be absolving the cop of murder, but that is what this is.

    Were you held in that position for more than 5 minutes? I believe the officer was on this man's neck for more than 7 minutes.

    Are you are person of color and was your trainer a cop?? Your situation is not like this. There is never a need to put a handcuffed person in this position (or anyone for that matter)!!

    And regardless, the man said he couldn't breathe. That is enough for a trainer to remove his weight from your neck, should have been enough for a civil servant to do the same!

    That was a big issue for me. Except the other way around. It was things that I posted that got others to brigade my profile. That made me dislike my family and some friends too. And that was not cool.

    I left most groups and pages months before actually getting off facebook because of the assholes and idiots.

    He does like reptiles, he used to have a monitor Lizard, but not snakes specifically, that is me.

    Sounds like my twin. He has his dog page and then all the exotic fish and small animal pages.

    He doesn't even post if it isn't about animals or his "new" bike.

    Did it? I don't think so. I don't want to open Facebook, don't want to know what people on Facebook are thinking. Nothing. Still have not been on Facebook for a year to the second.... and counting. Nothing negated by posting about it on a different site.

    Maybe if I had posted this on Facebook it might have defeated the purpose, but in fact I shared what was on my chest in r/trueoffmychest.

    I am proud of the fact that I have not been on Facebook for a year. It was something I wanted to share (and since I am home alone with a two year old Reddit seemed like a good place to share how I was feeling.

    Facebook is one of those things where the moment you put it down it no longer effects you.

    You are not closing your eyes to it, you are stepping away from a toxic situation not just sitting down and closing your eyes to it.

    Just because others refuse to leave doesn't make my (or anyone else's) walking away any less better for our own mental health.

    The only reason my Facebook is still "active" is because some games only have Facebook linking and I didn't want to lose 100+ hours on some of my games (especially when I got a new phone).

    Other than that I don't even have Facebook on my new phone.

    I tried that too. Limiting how often and how long I was on Facebook per day. Didn't help because the few people I kept on my friends list hold very different mindsets than myself. And liked to shove it in my face that I was the outcast when it came to "right think".

    I actually had an aunt and cousin attack me because I posted how the great flood from the Bible could be found in other texts besides the Bible. They "demanded" I remove the article from my own page because it was "their intellectual property". And told me that I was possessed by the devil for sharing such things.

    I had my uncle tell me that needed to stop posting anti-government memes because it showed my lack of intelligence. (I was sharing declassified documents about MK-Ultra and Project Monarch and how it could still be going on today).

    I blocked everyone who was toxic toward me. Did not help. I had less than 100 friends (all of whom I know/knew in real life) didn't follow any political or news page and stayed away from those topics, still didn't help.

    Sometimes you just have to let go completely and I did.

    Congratulations!! That is 10 days to be proud of (in a world addicted to Facebook)

    I tried that for awhile. But no my Facebook was down to less than 100 friends (actual people I knew in real life) and it was still so prevalent.

    It was easier just to be done with it.

    [–] I have been off Facebook 1 year to the day. DragonMomma420 3 points ago in TrueOffMyChest

    Thanks!! It was easy once I remembered that I don't actually care about those people in real life, and if I do I have their number or whatever. Lol

    Normally I would agree with that sentiment, but not when it comes to Facebook. It is a platform that uses algorithms to to show you things to make you mad or sad. Facebook is actually made to push emotionally manipulative things. Where feelings and emotion trump any sort of real discussion. And if you disagree, you should be shunned (only after being brigaded by the rest of your friends list) and that does not make for a pleasant family gathering in real life.

    It is a platform where you can't always post what's on your mind because "what will soandso think of me?" Or "My [friend or family member] is ____ so I have to change who can see what I post." Because Facebook has an impact on peoples real lives.

    I lost friends over single posts on Facebook. A life long friend gone because they didn't like a post I shared about 9/11 not being caused by box cutter weilding men who didn't even know how to fly a plane.

    Yeah damn near had a heart attack when I thought I lost my game progress.

    Thank you kind Redditor!

    I try to tell people this and they think I'm lying or something.

    They really can't picture themselves without Facebook. That is sad to me.

    Nope, not missing a damn thing! Lol

    Thank you, Reddit is my Facebook sobriety counter.
