If a person is resisting arrest do they deserve whatever happens to them to get them into handcuffs?

    If they continue to resist, maybe. If they aren't then no.

    So long as it isn't excessive. Being shot to death is excessive. And, by the way, George Floyd didn't resist arrest, not at all. This notion you promote that Black people get brutalized and killed being arrested because they've done something to deserve to be is a racist lie promoted by racists. 

    Furthermore, had George Floyd been White, he'd not have been arrested. Less than 5% of people verified as passing counterfeit currency are charged with a crime because the crime requires intent and 95% of the time there is no evidence showing the subject knew they were passing counterfeit currency. There was no probable cause for arrest, only probable cause for questioning, and had he been White, he'd have been asked to step aside and answer a few question and not been thrown down, pounced on by four officers, and had his neck knelt upon for eight minutes straight.

    No, people still have rights. Police are trained in how to subdue people without excessive force.

    I'm pretty sure that's not how police procedural manuals read.
