    It turns your stomach is right. It’s absolutely heartbreaking. There are two systems of justice.

      @Lea Brown racism isn’t illegal, I don’t have to like any race to bad little girl

      @Lea Brown Facebook censors stories about real estate shopping spree by BLM co-founder, racism makes you money now, god you are so pathetic

    • @Toby Hobo, racist. Blackface as your pic, too? Wow! You sure don’t hold back your racism.

    • @Hogan Slipstream, clear omission of partisan hatred and racism. SMH

    • @fpskiller 123, I’m no little girl. Nice try to belittle me, but you are the one who is sad. You’re racism leads you to be impartial, inhumane and makes you out to be a sad and scared individual. It’s just deplorable and pathetic that you are proud of it. SMH

  2. I don’t know why amazon or other companies don’t want their employees to unionized , telling everyone that is not beneficial for the employees in the long run – but the police department are a big powerful union / mafia thugs – and it works well for them

    • Amazon can and will move to the most profitable venue, and you can not afford to move with them. You are driving a Toyota today because of the auto unions of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Unions do not allow removal of the nonproductive.

    • Preach!

      The police union is a different animal from other unions

    • @Just another human well we need to become a different animal all together,

      I’m just kidding we are nothing but slaves to the system .

    The Police need to be psychologically tested before they are allowed to do the Job.

  4. It can be fixed by dismantling and start over, reform won’t work, too many pieces of sh.. already embedded

    pull qualified immunity from the police

  6. Christian Kepler | April 17, 2021 at 8:27 AM | Reply

    Police don’t realize the position that they are personally placing themselves into…rage of revolution makes every single current cop in the U.S. a target if/when the revolution comes.

  7. Imagine if George Floyd had killed a cop by holding his knee on his neck? He would of being murdered by the State for doing that or even if he had just his knee on the cops neck He would of been shot on the spot. How could there even be a question about George Floyds murder?

  8. Almost everyone says we need immunity rules change but no one wants to initiate it.

    Your guest is absolutely correct. OUR country needs more resources to fight poverty, drug abuse, mental illness, etc.; more police will not solve these problems.

    • james haaglund | April 17, 2021 at 8:49 PM | Reply

      Lets just do a test run, send all police home for one year, with pay. Then we will check back and see if msnbc and CNN want to jabber from a different angle.

    • But, without police, you get more drug abuse, mental illness turn violent, among other things, and everyday people will have to face these violence directly Yourself is included. So what is your alternative???

    • @Daniel Arcadia according to the mother he was an angle and wanted to a doctor, or lawyer or president maybe.

    • @elitepanda3000 yeah, as long as garbage like you still on the street.

    When I was young, we had traffic officers, who were separate to the police, in New Zealand.

  11. If i was the lawyer in these trials id ask them one question:”officer,if that man george passed a fake bill,after coming in to contact with you,he will never pass another countsrfit bill,will he? Forgetting that hes a man ,with a family,with hopes and dreamsHe will at least,never be able to break the law anymore,will he?.
    And thats why choven diddnt take the stand. Guilty

      It seems a black or brown person can get the death penalty anytime, anywhere, for “maybe” passing a fake bill. For walking down the street or in a park, for holding a cell phone, or a toy, an air freshener on the rearview mirror, an expired, maybe, license. For being asleep in the apartment the police mistakenly break into. And of course, George Floyd is now compliant for eternity. Call it what it is: extrajudicial execution; state sanctioned murder.

    Law enforcement can not be trusted. They have proved this time and time again. It is time for a new system. Get these garbage people out of the community. Time for all of these criminals to face justice.

    • Who do you think should enforce the law? Someone has to go get those “assault weapons” off the street. Who’s it gonna be? Social workers?

    Law Enforcement Must be Tore Down and RESTRUCTURED from depths 6′ under to the top.

    • Perfect imagery

      I was on board with dismantling and rebuilding. But thats not going to work – its so corrupt that it needs to be abolished. I can’t even believe I’m saying that. Having Adam Toledo executed, hands up one day and reading a police chief who donated to kyle rittenhouse defense saying he did nothing wrong and the rank & file is behind him. fk that. it needs to be abolished.

  14. I’ve been living in germany since 1985, working as a sales rep (driving thousands of kilometers over the years), and have been stopped twice. Two times, both as “mouse traps” to check random drivers for alcohol. Everything else has been photographed and sent to me as evidence (speeding tickets). I got back three times to visit mf family, ang got pulled over every time. In a rental! One was “suspicion of a stolen engine”, one was “suspicion of drug trafficking”, the other was general suspicion (I rented a corvette. Sue me, I wanted to have fun with my brother, for once. I think he pulled me over BECAUSE I was following the traffic rules). The american police force is highly suspect, frightful ad a whole and a gang. Period.

      @sensualeye I have traveled all over the United states, I avoid places where colored people are, because half of them are bad. I feel sorry for the police who have to deal with them.

    • @TAKE THAT YOU AS SOUL! I feel sorry our country has to deal with racists like you and corrupt police that murder the innocent

    • @R Littlejohn most of the white cops are KKK members who traded in their white robes and hoods for a blue uniform and a badge.

    • @TAKE THAT YOU AS SOUL! you couldn’t be any more ignorant. I’ll pray for you

      Then you should know the nazis were recruited here operation paper clip. The 4th reich is alive…

  15. Certainly didn’t hear, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts!” During the terrorists attack on the capital.

  16. I’m no longer waiting for the stimulus check because I earn $24,230 every 14-16 days recently

      Now that Bernie Madhof has died, I seem to hear echoes…yeah…echo….echo…echo

      Ahhh..you all joined 8 months ago…all the same person…is this another grift from Donnie, or just Donnie style?

    • Maybe if the obvious fake accounts in this thread tried this at the Fox News channel, they’d get a bite of some naive people.

      Absolutely zero people fall for this, and you just wind up looking absolutely ridiculous.

    The best thing about the worse people in the world is that they can’t avoid revealing their own identity.

  18. Who has told all these people to run resist, MSM stokes that to the Max

    lets not forget that security had a 3 day warning and still had minimum police on site even though their ring leader was holding a rally right down the road IT DOESNT TAKE A GENIUS to know he was up to no good. or that his loyalists were helping him from the inside.

  20. ” _Instead of a war on poverty_ /
    _They got a war on drugs, so that the police can bother me_ //”
