    now charge that female undercover cop and the cops that plotted to arrest the cnn crew
    oh wait more than 3 so thats conspiracy to falsely arrest free media
    she had no backpack no water bottle, all alone on empty street… bad acting, approached cnn crew hung out until the cops were ready, being surrounded pretending to resist arrest by gently charging directly into a cops baton. trumps people are censoring our country, they are testing ways to arrest the media and political enemies.
    theres more than enough stormy daniels type cops that will risk prison to do their dear leaders will.

      GreensOplenty …Wow…what an imagination, where do you get your stuff from?…..you should not over use it, only recreationally .

      @Off-The-Record well some of us are playing chess while trumpers are riding the short bus to school…

    • Bet Trump ordered the arrest on the media, hes good for punishing anyone who opposes his crackpot and half baked ideas.

    • @GreensOplenty Trump is a Nazi. Or didn’t you know that?

    First-degree murder is the only charge that can be made!

  3. Ironic that the American Revolution, and the Boston massacre began with the killing of a Black Man named Crispus Attucks.

      A revolution is what we need now. Burn it all down an start all over, it’s the only way we will ever see change.

    • You’re posting this comment everywhere and have been corrected on this lie.

      The Boston Massacre never actually happened. But that tidbit of “fake news” helped incite the American Revolution . Your claim doesn’t jive.

    • MatterIsNotSolid | May 29, 2020 at 10:14 PM | Reply

      @gobigorange Agreed. Time to get all the communists out of America.

    The family should get their own autopsy by an independent third party

    • Anyone whose seen how cozy the DA, the coroner and the rest are should see right through this. I believe absolutely nothing coming from this corrupt bunch; they’ve been going along with police brutality for years and are part of the problem.

    • Teardown Dan | May 29, 2020 at 7:44 PM | Reply

      Cases of police brutality should be investigated by an independent external party such as the FBI. The local and neighboring police departments, DAs, courts, etc. need to coordinate too much with each other in the course of regular affairs to have any credibility of independence and impartiality when investigating themselves.

    • Carolisa Kallas | May 29, 2020 at 8:05 PM | Reply

      The family’s attorney just said that they are getting a second private pathologist examination.

    • They will . Too much money on the line.

    • Uniquely Me. | May 29, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      Fact!

  5. The police not listening to a trained EMT is or should be criminal at very least to start!

    • i420's Everything's Paranormal | May 29, 2020 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      16 times he asked wtf 😒🤦‍♂️

    • @i420’s Everything’s Paranormal I hope one of the EMT’s called it in!

    • Jeffrey Haines | May 29, 2020 at 8:42 PM | Reply

      Well Police are trained with basic EMT skills… Like CPR… So he should have know first hand

    • Project Management | May 29, 2020 at 9:01 PM | Reply

      @Jeffrey Haines c’mon man. They are trained to use steroids and shoot people in the back what cop has ever given anyone cpr? Handcuff you with bullets in your backs while they tell you to quit resisting maybe.

      Project Management Good cops give people CPR… But there are tons of bad apple cops out there..

    The pathologist report is a complete nonsense and fully fabricated.

    • JohnGalt009 | May 29, 2020 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      One tactic after another; so predictable. They deliberately delayed, so as to gauge the level of protesters & their resolve. “Oops”- up went $1 billion in property.

    Justice?
    F NO! 😡

  8. Why did the medical team not do first aid as soon as they arrived at the scene? Seems like no one cared about the poor guy. 🙁

  9. valentin ivanow | May 29, 2020 at 7:00 PM | Reply

    It really isn’t hard to believe that that policeman committed a murder, and that other accomplice, what a poor America, through that fool of a president, you throw yourself back 100 years

    • Wade Stanton | May 29, 2020 at 10:31 PM | Reply

      When using the word, “that” one is alway sufficient, when writing. When speaking it is easily understood. When reading it creates a stumble for most readers.

  10. There are three hands on killers, not one? if these other two had not helped to hold him down, he may have been able to struggle free and breath? The other two aided and abetted a murder.

  11. If the 4 policemen do not get their just sentences, the riots is just the mildest that place will experience.

    Get another medical examiner’s opinion! Someone from another State and agency

    My condolences to George Floyd’s family. Those videos were gruesome….made me cry!!!!

  14. Tyrone Cole | May 29, 2020 at 7:12 PM | Reply

    so hypertension contributed to his death ? lol i can bet if he didnt have hypertension being slowly sufficated till you die is still pretty unhealthy

  15. It must was first degree murder in plain sight.

  16. bezbeanz Jett | May 29, 2020 at 7:15 PM | Reply

    Dude, even the media is trying to push this through.. There were three men sitting on that man.jez

  17. Yeah, manslaughter for the accomplices perhaps but definitely first degree murder for Derek Chauvin

  18. Regardless of his underlying health conditions, it was willful and cruel indifference to his life that killed him.

  19. We don’t need to be defensive about Mr. Floyd’s conduct. His conduct was blameless. The cops, on the other hand, aren’t blameless. Let them be on the defensive.

    • William Wells | May 29, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      Hes a goddammit criminal low life, he shouldn’t have died, and yes the police need to be tried.

  20. Claire Obermarck | May 29, 2020 at 7:39 PM | Reply

    Yes, 1st degree murder and all 4 officers charged, stripped of their pensions and banned from working in law enforcement ever again.
