  1. Thank you Gwen for your kindness. Your son’s death was the first murder I ever witnessed. The number of cell phone videos of these types of deaths since then has shown the depths of our country’s racism. May this jury’s finding be the turning point to fully understanding one another by the content of our character.

    1. The culture that KILLS is cops NOT saying, “This is wrong,” and intervening. That’s how Floyd died, and Dante. Not, “one rotten apple,” but the protection they get, in real time, from the poisoned tree! Chop it down, burn it, and plant a new one. Spend generously, out of the tax payer’s purse! They’ll thank you in the end, when generous spending on VETTING and TRAINING works out cheaper than billions in settlements!

    2. Another disgusting criminal that committed another crime. Another disgusting racist family taking advantage for the money! FULL STOP !

    1. @N 827 didn’t happen .not going to happen. He’s going to be fighting for his freedom in many court battles to come ps how’s life treating you

    2. @Mutton Chops racist corrupt cheating Joe and “ only way to DC was on my knees” racist Cheating Harris Fan

  2. I remember the first time I saw the Eric Garner video. God I cried so much as if I knew the man. Even when I lost the only brother that I had, didn’t cry as much as I did with Eric Garner.

  3. Could it be a step into the right direction? I truly hope so, because Justice Matters. Not only for White People but for ALL People, no matter what race, colour, Religion!!

  4. Thank you Mrs Garner, your bravery in the face of unbearable tragedy is inspiring. May God Bless You.

  5. Would anyone who clicked on ‘dislike’ explain how you could dislike a selfless person giving comfort to other mothers please?

  6. this is the song that never ends, it just goes on and on my friends, some people. started singing it not knowing what it was and there forever singing it forever just because.. this is the song that never ends it just goes on and on my friends, some people. started singing it not knowing what it was and there forever singing it forever just because this is the song that never ends it just goes WE GET IT STFUA

    1. If I remember well, when I first saw her she was asked what she is hoping for, and she said something like ‘I hope the officer who killed my son to be fired.’ I was stunned, in what world she lives in. The world in which society suppressed her that much that justice for her son who died in one of the most senseless killing is a hope for the officer who did it to lose his job; which, later I learned, he could easily find in a nearby state/county/department. In my opinion, for the police workforce there has to be a vision, mission and strategy on the federal level.

  7. I cannot imagine what this woman has endured. I literally cannot. I would be a raging mess, not a calm voice of reason, justice, and comfort for others.

  8. *GUILTY*
    *Derek Chauvin:* “And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids and their phones.”

  9. It’s the bad apples that spoil the bunch. But then it comes time to examine the tree that the apples are falling from.

  10. Tears to her eyes..and
    She have had many .to
    Reliving the emotions
    A mother endure to bury a child ..for a pack of cigarettes..lynching modern day choke hold…fight the
    Good fight of the faith…take hold of the
    Eternal life to which you were called and about which you made
    In good confession in
    The presence of many
    Witnesses..as it is ALREADY written…

  11. Chauvin got a trial and jury, unlike so many other poor people! RIP to all killed by police, my dad and brother in law included!

  12. Love this person that is helping other mothers endure their grief. I love it when she said that she prayed first. There is a power that regenerates you to do things that you would not ordinarily be able to gather the strength to do.

  13. This woman BELIEVES in something, and she is the best example of serving her belief by acting for the good of others.
