Ben Crump Is A Suspect In George Floyd Murder

Last year I spent about $20 and 90 days to obtain George Floyd’s mugshots from Texas. My article containing this content, “Nobody Wants You To See These George Floyd Mugshots” was picked up by Google News and other aggregators. That sent my humble blog out to millions of people. As a result I received hundreds of emails and dozens of phone calls. Mostly these people were very angry and hateful. They accused me of terrible things. All for simply publishing the man’s mugshots. Their main point? That it was inhumane to publish a dead man’s mugshots. My point? The man was alive after every one of the pictures I published. I never would have published his torture movie. That is inhumane to me.

The lack of humanity involved in the proliferation of torture movies is the subject of my book: The Digital Lynching of George P. Floyd. I studied the details of this case in more depth than anybody and know how Ben Crump illegally obtained his clients. This is a pattern of his. The pattern Ben Crump follows is called barratry. Commonly known as “ambulance chasing,” it is actually a much more involved category of crime in the state of Minnesota where the George Floyd incident occurred.

Ben Crump Is A Suspect, Obviously, But Nobody Wants To Talk About It

One of Trump’s attorneys used the phrase, “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus” in the 2nd fake impeachment of Trump. It means “false in one thing, false in everything.” It’s a principle that means a witness who falsely testifies about one thing can’t be credible to testify about anything. If you apply that principle to an attorney, it would sound more like: if they break the law in one way, they may break the law in every way. This is similar to what a barratry attorney told me when I was researching the book.

J. Gonzalez told me that barratry is a practice where accident attorneys cheat the system. They are not legally allowed to prospect for clients within a certain period of time. That length of time differs by state. But needless to say, you cannot prospect a victim or family member of a victim of an accident within 48 hours. If you’re an empathetic human being you would understand why this is the case. You can’t know the pain of that kind of moment, and it’s a vulnerable time. People are easy prey for predators whenever they are grieving. That’s when people like Ben Crump strike.

Another reason why an attorney wouldn’t want to practice law this way would be that they can’t have enough time to do their due diligence. It’s true that some accident attorneys prey on the vulnerable. But it’s also true that people fake accidents and trick lawyers to represent their case to win settlements. It actually works both ways. Though Ben Crump claims he is incredibly discerning with his case load, he miraculously gets retained in impossible time.

Crump Was Doing Interviews With George Floyd’s Family Before He Could Have Even Been Properly Identified

When you read my book you’ll see the details. But the long and short of it is this. By 6pm Eastern Time on May 25, 2020, Ben Crump had found George Floyd’s family members, been retained by them, arranged an interview with them using, gotten himself interviewed on TMZ, and distributed those interviews to major news networks.

The footage of Floyd’s altercation with police aired at around 8am that morning. Floyd’s cousins admitted they didn’t even recognize him in the video. In the book I tracked Crump’s Twitter account in a span of a few hours of requesting his network find Floyd’s family, to him announcing they had retained him. Even though this may be a common practice, it’s illegal.

That’s what lawyers would call solicitation. Soliciting runners. A runner is somebody that breaks the law for an accident lawyer to allow them to cheat the system. Runners are people that find out about accidents and tip off or otherwise get lawyers referrals for clients in an illegal way. They work around the law in order to still prey on people that don’t realize it.

According to J. Gonzalez and my other research, these people can have all kinds of different jobs. EMT, police officer, 911 operator, etc. Anybody that is involved in the accident response industry. Doctors or medical examiners. You name it they’ve done it. It’s a common thing actually.

J. Gonzalez said that this is a very insidious crime because it happens so often that people ignore it. In a lot of jurisdictions where it happens often there are other more serious crimes that take up police time or the courts’ resources. Imagine in Philadelphia, if the district attorney was going after lawyers that broke the law about how they get their business. They paid an EMT $500 to let them know about a dead body in the morgue before anybody else even knew who it was. That’s how it works.

Crump used his Twitter account to solicit thousands of runners. He would like us to believe that it was only that bad. Let me be clear: that’s bad enough. Preying on families of people killed by police? He trots them out on television to solicit empathy and sets up GoFundMe accounts to generate money whether or not he wins a civil case.

Don’t Believe A Word Ben Crump Says, He’s Just Social Justice’s Biggest Loser

He pretends to win big for social justice, but he is not the one that goes after criminal charges for police. That’s not his job. He’s an accident lawyer. An ambulance chaser. A glorified barratry artist. He breaks the law to get his clients, and in order to continue his thirst for blood money, I believe he has actually gone to a new low: planning deaths.

There is a lot more to the George Floyd case than meets the eye, and the media is unlikely to go near it. But if you want to know the truth, suspect Ben Crump of the worst possible breach of public trust you can imagine.

Ben Crump is a suspect in the murder of George Floyd whether the progressives want to hear that or not.
