This is such a compelling case. It has moved us all over the last couple of years so I can understand your choosing this case. If you can focus on the communication between the police and Floyd in your revision to meet the requirements of the assignment...we are seeking to analyze the linguistic evidence in the case and here we have the pleas of Floyd and the responses (either in action or words of the police). We have to show that it was not reasonable or rational for the officers to ignore those pleas or to use force. If there were violations of the constitutional rights you mentioned, how were these rights violated ... under the courts' interpretation of the law. Review my comments, revise, and resubmit. Notice that there are 4 additional points in the rubric for revision.
