  2. If Mr. Floyd did have Covid in the past then clearly either way no one there was wearing a mask anyway… including the police officers!!!!!!!! I hope and pray these officers get the punishment they deserve!!

  3. If you have ever been in the system, the process is slow. Its astounding how fast prosecutors moved this case along all things considered. Processes can take months, even years.

  4. Crumps everywhere.

      This is not about whether Mr Crump is an ALLEDGED Freemason. It is about the family’s right to choose the lawyer to represent the family. Many on this thread seem to know of a lawyer who is better qualified. No names however..

      This guy is nothing but a race baiting shill who’s getting rich off the suffering of his own people. BRB I gotta go take a Crump.

      PianissimoForte My point was he has 2 or 3 other cases that’s nothing more nothing less. I made a simple comment that is it. You reading way to deep into what I said. I know very well about who hires who as an attorney/lawyer but that was not were I was going with my comment. #Respect #GoodDay

      He’s no Johnny

    • This isn’t a random family these people are strategically placed that’s why it is broadcast it on these networks 24 hours a day. They don’t call television programming for nothing. Who do you think they are programming?

  5. 1800’s Klan called…they want you to know these lynch mobs are culturally appropriating them.

    I’m through is what he uttered!

  7. Bronje Samuel | June 4, 2020 at 7:35 AM | Reply

    Why didn’t they talk about how the state medical examiner tried to say he died of natural causes before he stepped down. And changes his report when an independent medical examiner proved he died of asphyxiation.

    • Didn’t see or hear about dorn til now

    • Logic Police | June 4, 2020 at 1:32 PM | Reply

      Bronje Samuel he didn’t. He said strangulation was not the specific and direct cause of death, but cardiopulmonary failure from the knee on his neck. You don’t have the medical knowledge or mental capacity to understand this finer point. It was still a homicide, the statement in question was merely the conclusion on HOW the body failed under the assault, not IF. No one tried to rule it “natural causes.” Fool.

      Vlad The Inhaler they won’t get it. They are mentally impaired. But you’re right.

      Wow this is so interesting, I was going to check the guy out. Thanks. Wow didn’t hear Rachel doing her connect the dots investigations… surely she knows it’s the bloody same guy. Nobody had mentioned this not even the alternative progressive media.

      Don’t care what a doctor say, it’s on the video, with everybody’s standing around when that happen, those Cop’s is on the video to, so they can’t lie that he die from natural cause, and nothing else, they gotta show that video so those Jury’s can see it to, and their Lawyer’s gotta see it to even the Judge gonna see it, how can a person die from natural cause, and they wasn’t even sick, the man wasn’t in no Hospital sick, the only Hospital he was at, was on street’s down on the side walk where they murder him and murder is not a natural cause,

  8. Someone please give this man Elocution lessons.

    • Marlowe Earl | June 4, 2020 at 6:16 PM | Reply

      Have someone give you Compassion Lessons!!!

    • @Marlowe Earl What’s compassion have to do with enunciation 🤔. This case is too serious to leave it to an attorney who some can’t even understand. His job is to serve, defend, demonstrate, prove, and communicate Mr. Floyd’s case ( RIP) thru ORATION/communication on behalf of the deceased and his family. Nothing but the best should do.
      Improve upon your critical thinking skills and think about how something as simple as how well you speak (especially as a paid professional ) can either raise the masses or turn them against you. Shouldn’t be hard to imagine something so trivial can be so harmful -considerings a man was murdered for a fake $20.

      It’s not fair I know, but that’s exactly why we are in this fight. Your adversaries are looking for any excuse to dismiss you.
      No hard feelings here, but please keep in mind that knee jerk ad hominem reactions will gain you little credibility, even with those who are fighting with you. ✊🏽

  9. Does he not know what the fullest extent of this law is? He’s an Attorney!?????

      They have to determine what the highest charge is that they can prove to a jury. For that, they have to collect as much evidence as possible.

      First degree requires premeditation, that’s trickier to prove–but if the evidence is clear, they may still upgrade to first degree.

    • Jo-Erlend Schinstad | June 4, 2020 at 12:10 PM | Reply

      @Kevin Royal:That is false, according to Maya Wiley. People think “premeditation” requires weeks or months of planning, but it doesn’t. He was made aware and kept going for several minutes afterwards. That is premeditation.

    • Kevin Royal they knew each other and worked together so you never know

    • travise5284 | June 4, 2020 at 2:22 PM | Reply

      Jo-Erlend Schinstad 1st degree and you would risk a not guilty verdict

    • vicki mahan | June 4, 2020 at 7:32 PM | Reply

      The investigation is in process. It could be first degree for the main murderer as it may have been past personal interaction.

  10. The education system is truly broken. The Media controls if and when it matters.

  11. He needs to be charged to the full instent and we need equality cause if the shoe was on the other foot he would have been under the jail

  12. Second wave of corruption. corrupted government, corrupted fed, and corrupted cops.

    I would be very interested in witnessing the jury selection for these cases trying to find people with no bias.

    • Markus Stewart | June 4, 2020 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      @MeanGeneSanDiego So you’re saying there should not be any black people on that jury?

    • MeanGeneSanDiego | June 4, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      @Markus Stewart I was being facetious! The “System” will do everything they can to stack the cards in the Cops favor, at best there will be 6… The Cops Union and the “good ole boy” network will do everything to protect their own… count on it.

    • Markus Stewart | June 4, 2020 at 8:27 PM | Reply

      @MeanGeneSanDiego I stand corrected!

    • MeanGeneSanDiego | June 4, 2020 at 8:47 PM | Reply

      @Markus Stewart I’m hoping they will have learned from the Rodney King debacle. But our [il]legal System is stacked in favor of well-heeled Criminals. Defense Lawyers are highly paid Superstars and Prosecutors are Public Servants. It would be awesome if Kamala Harris could be the Prosecutor!😁💪

    • I was thinking that too… I wish them luck

  14. Latino lives also matter! Sean Monterrosa’s life was taken while he was kneeling, unarmed Latino! Justice for Sean!!

    It took a week of protests and mayhem to get these criminals charged. Hmmm, Justice not so swift.

  19. Oh my God, Floyd died “like a fish out of water” !!!!!

  20. I’m outraged and heartbroken for Mr. Floyd, and his family, my heartfelt prayers..Godbless
