  2. All officers who participated in that arrest and murder must be charged and found guilty. WE ALL WITNESSED IT HAPPENING!!!

    This disaster brought to you by the Republican Senate.

  4. Just look at the officer that kneels on his neck. He has his hand in his pocket, like he is standing over a trophy.
    Clearly Floyd did not resist.
    This is not how a police-person should act. Not even a soldier during combat.
    The police is there to serve the nation, the people, to uphold the law, and only use violence as a last resource.
    This is not that, this is murder.

      You are so right!! They deserve the death penalty for this

      He doesn’t actually have his hands in his pocket. He’s wearing black gloves which blended into his pants on the video. He moves his hands a couple of time and you can see the gloves.
      Still a pos though, hands in his pockets or not!

    • Evelyn Truman | June 2, 2020 at 12:50 PM | Reply

      And the guy was handcuffed! Knelt on his neck for approximately 9 minutes (thats what the media said). That’s premeditated murder!

      @James Ross very simple the biased news media wont tell you or show you why.. but with research one can see he collapsed right before getting in the SUV, he was on meth, fentenyl and possibly drunk as well.. a smoker and had heart conditions. eariler it took 2 cops to cuff him and he wouldn’t get out of his car and go along with the program. these drugs are a deadly combo.. when he collapsed they knew something was wrong and thought he was having a seizure and were holding him down till the EMTs came. sure it loooks bad.. but kneeling on his neck is not the direct cause of death. or everyone in the UFC would be dead. notice how you never see the full videos? that should tell you something. in other news did you hear about the black cop who shot the black unarmed handcuffed man 7 times..? prolly not cuz.. that black life didnt matter.. only the ones that fit narrative..

      @Joeybabbs .BABBS so its ok to crush anyone based on your HIGHLY researched and oh so chock full of knowledge post up there? Perhaps your magnifying ignorance but now isn’t YOUR time, and perhaps YOUR time has passed on at the end of thise crushing minutes.

    One video shows three on the cops kneeling on George Floyd. One on his neck, one on his back, and one on his legs. One question I have a video showed him leaning against a building in handcuffs. Then a police officer came over and I thought the police would put him into the police suv. Then the next video showed hm on the ground by the police suv The3 officers were all kneel with their knees on him, neck back and legs. How and why is he on the ground? Murder by police pure and simple. Even though the M E siad no evidence if stranga lation by the police What a lie

    • All those killers on him while he was handcuffed and on the ground. That’s intentional murder. Police are taught to use no force greater than necessary. If a person is handcuffed he or she is not a threat.

      @Joeybabbs .BABBS I have watched those videos more than once. He did not resist the police. And even the ME did not say he had any drugs in him or alcohol. Ypu are a dumb person to see and know things that no one else saw or knew Could you be a racist or white nationlist? Just asking

  7. America wiped out a generation of civil rights leaders in MLK, Malcolm X and Medgar Evers in a long list of people fighting for justice and equality for all not some.

    Second degree murder. All of the officers were complicit. Lock them up.

  10. This is nauseating and very sad! There was NO reason for the death of Mr. Floyd. We need to come together as Americans. Unfortunately we haven’t a president who is willing to unite us so we must do our best to embrace our neighbors. To the looters you are messing this up for everyone! I hope you will get caught. Karma is a Bit@h!!!

      Looting is for people that want to use rightfull protest for personal gain or for people that want to use rightfull protest to increase the division amongst Americans for extreme political ideals (rights and left) or anarchic ideals. However, the looting should not cover what is the reason for protest, the continued culture within a lot of police forces in American to abuse force, specially when it comes for black or brown people. Rightfull protesters need to improve their self policing because in a lot of places they will not receive help to stop looting from the police that wants to make a point and the extreme & anarchic forces will be there to create chaos.

  11. It’s called MECHANICAL ASPHYXIATION

  12. everyone who watched that video in the world realized that they killed a innocent person.
    Why doesn’t the local government accept the facts? It’s real discrimination.
    IT’S REAL DISCRIMINATION.🤯😡

    Had it been anybody else other than officers all four would have been charged. They all need to be charge so when the next cop that see another cop doing wrong will step up.

    Why the cover up? Is this because of the policemen are white??? America condemn violation of human rights in other countries but have another standard for its own backyards. Totally hypocrites and a bully. Shame on america

      @Tan Lim Kwang Really? How do you know this if you’re from HK? Where do you get your evidence NBC news? There are good and bad people of every color, just like right now you’re seeing a lot of the bad looting and destroying, while the good are protesting peacefully

    • Luis Boqcas | June 2, 2020 at 9:15 AM | Reply

      @robert dalton Covering for friends is bad culture irrespective of the color issue, in the end I do not know his motivation. However, the treatment of blacks by Police force in America is a very different deal because you have numbers, statistics that prove that color has a significant influence in the way you are treated by the police.

      No there was only one white cop,the kneeler,but its not about race its about the brutality cops use,especially in Minnesota,and alot of northern states,than is rare in the south so no its obvi not race

    • Evelyn Truman | June 2, 2020 at 12:47 PM | Reply

      @angiekil1998 there were four. The others knelt on his lower body, but for a shorter time

    • Not all 4 police officers were white you ignorant racist #$&%! One was black and one was Asian! Before you go shaming America why don’t you take a long hard look at your own country and all of the horrific war crimes that have gone. Until then you should just stfu!

  15. They are trying to cover up a murder that we saw on camera.

    • Evelyn Truman | June 2, 2020 at 1:07 PM | Reply

      Everyone saw the murder. No drugs was found in his system. Well, they have been doing it for some time now, so why not? Just tell the sheep they only think they see what they saw. Then tell the sheep what they should see, even though the sheep see what is to be seen. The guy was murdered! Period!

    • Evelyn Truman | June 2, 2020 at 1:14 PM | Reply

      @Joeybabbs .BABBS Now they’re telling us what we should see, even though we saw what we saw. They handcuffed the guy in the jeep. That affected his balance. NO DRUGS were found in his system. Did you miss that report? You burn and loot just to lessen the effect of the murder, then make up falsehood and spread it via the media. The sheep are not that dumb! They are waking up! Won’t work. You should be charged for conspiracy.

      @Smile Big It was not confirmed that the money was counterfeit. It was an allegation that was not proven.

    • King of Kings | June 2, 2020 at 5:39 PM | Reply

      What do you mean “cover up” the cop was arrested and charged with murder and the others lost their jobs!!..so what more do people want???….I could understand the protests NOT the riots, if nothing had been done about this but the highest action that could be taken against him has been taken, so no cover up going on here, justice is being done for the man and his family… all of which would have been done even without a protest.

  16. Murder. Murder murder. Justice for George Floyd

  17. One things for sure, if Mr. Floyd never came into contact with those officers that day, he’d be still alive!..

      @Ian Walton Yeah, try introducing lies. You are all over. Burning and looting for blacks to be blamed, and pushing your agenda by false accusations. If there were no videos your strategy would work. The murdered guy has videos on YouTube where he condemned drugs and violence.

    The preliminary autopsy from the county said that there was no reason to be sure that Floyd died of asphyxia. That was an effort to protect all the four policemen. After the protests went to the next level, the county medical examiner reneged on his earlier goal and called Floyd’s death a case of homicide (death of a human being caused by another human being). In the revised report, the good doctor serving the county by serving only its police personnel – and not its other citizens – has tried to shield the other three policemen. The question to be asked is why this disgusting doctor should not have his license revoked.

    • May be the doctor is white people

    • An autopsy for something like this isn’t as simple as we want it to be. Those CSI shows on TV aren’t anything like reality. And you said it yourself, the “preliminary autopsy” is, well, preliminary. The video evidence is more important anyway. We know what happened. We know he died because of what the officers did to him.

    • Like we don’t have eyes

      @fredy gump He was strangled for minutes on end.

  19. I don’t give a dam if the man was high as he’ll Which HASNT Been proven! You do Not choke him to death!! Wth?! Always dig up dirt on the victims.

  20. “Underlying health condition” I’m quite sure if someone held their knee on your neck for almost 9 minutes you’d be dead regardless of what condition you might have had even if you were already a corpse.
