    The real culprit is the printer of the fake 20$. George Floyd became a victim.

      Even the counterfeiter deserved only to be forced to pay the people he or she ripped off. I have received funny money myself and I felt upset toward the person that gave me the fake bill, but not enough to harm him.

      Haven’t seen any proof at all that the bill was counterfeit.

    some genius should develop a protective cape and emergency oxygen pouch for protesters to shield against police tear gas and rubber bullets, etc. ELON MUSK? ANYONE???? Then, when the raving cops descend every protester can simply lie down, in place completely blocking the roads and bridges and buildings!! What, the cops gonna do? Bring out the bulldozers?? Like the NAZIS at Auschwitz burying the mountains of dead corpses in mass graves?? Cops gonna trade in rubber with real deadly bullets and have carnage on the streets on live TV – of peaceful, in fact stationary, men women and children??

  11. end gangs now

  12. Perhaps it ought to be required for police to live in their precincts even if the city has to subsidize their housing.

    There is good police and without them you see what would happen our country wouldn’t survive they need to lock the other 3 murderers up charge them in lets get life back going people need to go back to work

  15. Police brutality settlements should come from police retirement funds or pension plan instead of our tax dollars. how fast police brutality plummets to a all-time low…

  16. you sit there blaming others… you sir are the mayor… this happened under your watch..: you are just as guilty!!!!!

    Since firing all current law enforcement officials and screening the new batch appropriately (meaning only hiring those that don’t want to be cops) is cost-prohibitive, I suggest we at least begin reforming law enforcement by prohibiting them from carrying weapons of any kind. Secondly, they need to be taught negotiation skills to help them de-escalate potentially dangerous situations. Finally, all cops need to undergo psychological testing to weed out the worst…

  18. Community Policing is totally necessary Nipsey Hussle tried to do that and they killed him… As others unfortunately the ones at the top needs to have it Us vs. Them to fit their narrative/financial gains.

    After the Detroit riots, the police were required to live in the city again. It made a difference when the police once again became a part of the community. Raising children with “rare disorders” meant that I had no second chances. I had to raise them under the assumption that they would be treated well by first responders. My true test came because people voted judges onto the bench without ever researching their backgrounds. These mail-in ballots may help provide a more thoughtful vote. I love Carter’s description of policing from his father’s point of view. A family history of generations of public service means a lot.

  20. Community policing doesn’t work. It’s just some concept used by politicians when police reform comes up because it’s easy for people to understand and it sounds nice. There is no significant data that shows community policing works. Accountability and policies within the departments are major factors. Cops can play with kids all they want but if there are no consequences for misconduct or killing someone, cops won’t change their behaviors. 1% of cops are convicted and they are rarely charged.
