  1. “You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son”. – Barack Obama

    1. @Mike Barry My head exploded when I saw how bad of a president he was. I am fairly certain that he was the demacratic party’s race card to win the election.

  2. I wouldn’t want one person to speak for my entire race. Why do people do this? It’s weird and creepy.

    1. @ldahl04 not grounds for termination. Anyway, if they subdued Floyd, and proceeded with the business… That’s a different story. But they restrained his entire body and pinned his neck to the road using a man’s knee (body weight)… That’s murder. Black or not, … that’s murder.

  3. The timeline is suspect. George is put into the back of the ambulance at 8:20 pm, he is pronounced dead at 9:35 pm. We need to talk to the EMT and doctors.

    1. @BS Troll All I did was look up how someone is legally declared dead and that was it. You have the right to disagree with the experts, no one is going to stop you.

  4. Every one living in the city should get ready, because when the jury exonerates this guy , they are going to start burning and looting again.

    1. @s k the way you carry yourself and what u say pretty much says it all have a good day and may god have mercy on your soul

    2. @Grim LockYT It’s obvious that in the small mind of SK, the world is void of a kaleidoscope of perspectives. Furtermore, his ignorance evinces that he only sees the world through a lens of black, versus, white. Therefore, when your perspective is limited to being a hammer, you will perceive everything in your reality as simply being a nail.

    3. @Rick Moss LOL, it is the media that drives the black vs white narrative, not me, I’m for all people who see themselves as one race, once they start separating themselves out, I’m done with them. What possible difference does it make that George Floyd is black and Chauvin is white? absolutely none, but you and the media think it’s the most important part of the story.

    4. @s k The most egregious lies are the ones told in earnest. Surely, you don’t believe what you profess you do. If it were true that you see the world as being joined at the hip of humanity, the snide remarks regarding “these people” would have never been presented. Moreover, I find it to be a rather savory irony, that you and your ilk are the type to call the media “fake news”, whilst simultaneously recitng it’s narrative.

  5. I’m a Hispanic male… old… educated… law abiding… ive had white cops pull guns on me on 2 occasions… ive been stopped for jogging while mexican… for walking to a friends house in the wrong neighborhood… ive had them stop at MY home and ask me “what are u doing here?”… what really hurt was that NONE of my white friends were outraged…

  6. The gray greasy great viola nearly scream because retailer historically hang inside a hard-to-find male. wrathful, stormy cd

    1. @kusheran wtf is wrong with you? Do you seriously believe what you just said? If so, thats one of the most sad, disturbing and idiotic things I’ve ever heard

    1. @Jackson Heathen I didn’t watch the journalist get his head sawn off with a butter knife. Maybe I should watch that.

  7. Imagine the power one must wield in order to be able to speak for an entire race of people.

    1. Kind of like when Joey spoke for the entire black race to let them know if they don’t vote for him they are not black.

    2. @P Lynn says the law since the burden of proof falls upon the accuser and not random emotional thoughts and beliefs

    1. some people get sad when they see someone slowly murdered before their eyes…some people are human beings

    2. It isn’t a trial. The man is right.
      When the rest of us grow up, stop OD’ing on Fentanyl, and abide the law of the land, then we don’t get to be wrestled to the ground by the police. But, then again, the SCOTUS has already ruled against this, and no matter if he is found guilty, he will, by this ruling, walk. Then, _real_ justice begins, like the lawsuits, and certain DA’s being disbarred, as in Freddie Gray.
