    It is not fair that he has to be here right now.

    • @DAMIEN KOY Comply don’t die…

    • silky johnson so they should murder him? Are the police in the US now judge and jury?

      @silky johnson Nothing fair, including your comment. Don’t you realize that he was ANY MAN? Are you a better man or just think so because you walked in different shoes? Walk with any man, because any man could be you.

    • @Susan no, th entire world is United against this cop, no one is saying it is sanctioned by police or anyone in government, but maybe if Floyd didn’t resist arrest, then he’d b in jail but still alive.

  2. Feeling pity over such inhuman treatment in so called developed nations.

    • @Faith SCCK goodness gracious me😱 you are certainly illitrate look at what you wrote. Your whole country is despicable violent and illitrate.

    • @Y Liu go eat a bat

    • ZI The world most violent country is America, the USA had declared 13 wars since WWII and each of every ten Americans would either have criminal record or be still in the jail. Like country like citizens.

      @Bad Bird Go ahead and keep acting like Gorge Floyd isn’t just the final straw. Keep pretending racism and discrimination in our local and federal gov isn’t rampant… Like no ones lives matter to you, unless you can use them for your argument. Keep pretending everyone is just going to keep taking it, until it all blows up in your face andbecomes your problem. That is what people like you are good at….. And I say people like you, instead of Republicans, because it is ignorant to generalize a group of millions, for the sake of an argument. That would be the same kind of logic racists use.

    • @Samier King true Floyd was indeed unjustly killed, however footage is out now that shows Floyd resisting arrest & refusing to get in th cop car, if he had cooperated he’d still b alive 2day, th footage is on atheism is unstoppable.

    • This is all well and good till you factor in the system doesn’t work that way. (Imo) We are grown up to be submissive to our superiors while we work our jobs and such. People are breaking free of this with entrepreneurship but the normal old ways still exist.

    Sedition
    By Edmund Vance Cook
    1917

    You cannot salt the eagle’s tail
    Nor limit thought’s dominion
    You cannot put ideas in jail
    You can’t deport opinion

    If any cause be dross and lies
    Then drag it to the light
    Out in the sunshine evil dies
    But fattens on the night

    You cannot make a truth untrue
    By dint of legal fiction
    You cannot imprison human view
    You can’t convict conviction

    For though by thumbscrew and by rack
    By exile and by prison
    Truth has been crushed and palled and black
    The truth has always risen

    You cannot quell a vicious thought
    Except that thought be free
    Gag it, and you’ll find it taught
    On every land and sea

    Truth asks no favor for her blade
    Upon the field with error
    Nor are her converts ever made
    By threat of force and terror

    You cannot salt the eagle’s tail
    Nor limit thought’s dominion
    You cannot put ideas in jail
    You can’t deport opinion

    I feel so bad for him being that he lost his brother, but I’m also very proud of the way that he worded what he said. I hope he, and all of us make it through this time with strength and justice for all, regardless of their backgrounds.

    Floyd’s brother pouring his heart out to a bunch of selfless, heartless and unGodly people . God did say to continue on until he return . This is the reason why we are still here . Jesus is our comfort , provider and deliverer. Every weapons that form against us shall not prosper. This i say ; WHEN JESUS RETURNS. EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW…

      @Stephanie Tihanyi Mr. TRUMP is not the antichrist. He does not aprove the kill of the fetus!!! Democrats…yes. For that reason I will vote for president Trump because I believe in Jesus. But you are not fallow what he taugth us!!! Analize yourself!!

    • Thank you, this comment helps. We all need the Lord. 🛐

      @Jeniffer Reate Wake up and smell the coffee dear. Trump fulfils all the description of the Antichrist we have written in the bible, I suggest you read it yourself. Do not be fooled. Trump couldn’t care less about abortion, he have supported it in the past, Trump is not even a Christian. He wants only your vote, he only wants complete power and adulation as antichrist by offering a titbit of something you desire in this earthly kindom, a bit of power, in exchange for you morality and your soul. If you follow Jesus, do not take the mark of this son of perdition. Do you not find it stange Trump has never once mentioned Jesus or any teachings of Jesus? Well its because he dispises, is jelouse and thinks he’s better at saving the world, and you seem to believe him, sadly. Please think again about Trump.

      Because it’s all political and nobody wants to be there

    • @Cartmen PUSHMIN I hope you never do wrong and ask for forgiveness, have children and finally want to do right. I hope people judge you for everything you do in life because you are so perfect. You don’t make mistakes. You have never hurt anyone. You have never hurt your family with words. You have never disappointed yourself. You never tried to change in life and be a better person. You probably have skeletons in your closet we wouldn’t agree with but you judge a dead man that can’t sit here and speak his truth. Right his wrongs. I am pretty sure he regret everyday who he was still gives no one a right to die. We are not god. He did his time and paid for his crimes and tried to rebuild his life. Now it’s those officers turn. They need to pay for their crimes.

      @Cropper Copper like I said this whole fiasco is a PSYOP to distract you from the real criminals in your government and hollywierd. Sex trafficking pedophiles andrenochrome sacrficing little children. Stealing your taxes. We have been hoodwinked Lord of the Flies order out of chaos divide and conquer. Has anybody seen George Floyd’s body? Looks like a Masonic ritual.

      Maybe they were watching the burial of the real hero today , that black officer who was shot instead of george, who if you research was a terrible person.putting a gun to the belly of a pregnant women and robbing her.they don’t say that about him. I bet you didn’t even know that the offier r shot and killed had a funeral today , the real hero. I’m starting to think that BLM stands for Burn Loot Murder.
