    This is like V for Vendetta come to life. “What happens when unarmed people confront armed people.”

  3. Huh, white cops arresting a black person for no reason.
    When have we seen this before?

  4. Something very strange about the whole ordeal. I would love to know who gave this order and why.

    He basically said when I got arrested I had comfort in knowing it was on camera what a true public servant

    • Nice pfp dude

    • @Tachanka The God The weed in my state is pretty good actually. Sure discredit what I said but at least give me a reason why you don’t agree instead of just calling me an idiot.

    • @Dirty Gerd nothing you’re saying is making sense

      That would be small comfort for me, George Floyd was on camera when he was arrested, and Derek Chauvin was on camera when he murdered George Floyd.

  7. Lol you almost have to feel bad for the mayor. I bet he saw this and was like really guys your arresting a guy live on tv. Poor guy his hair is gonna be white by the time this ends lol.

  8. Floyd: “ I CANT BREATHE”

    Police: “I don’t know man, just following orders”

    “Just following orders” is a huge problem. Mad respect to this reporter for remaining professional through this whole mess.

    1.) -Are you from CNN?
    2.) “I’m only following orders”
    3.) Who gave the order and who wants CNN arrested?
    4.) hmmm 🧐

  13. “I was just following orders” Ah yes completely fair I mean it totally worked at Nuremberg.

      @R M some people can NEVER take any responsibility for themselves it’s like dealing with a DYSFUNCTIONAL FEMALE or DYSFUNCTIONAL child.

      @R M I’m 75% white and 25% black I’m multi-racial. Ik that there were a bunch of fake witnessed that came to defend Zimmerman and fake witnesses to attack Zimmerman they had the audio call of them telling him not to approach martin and he did it anyway I’m not gonna waste my time to watch some documentary that’s dated.

      Ulysses Grant That’s what I thought it looked like too. They definitely arrested Omar first and then went back in to arrest the rest just to make it look better.

    • @espace chat Sadly we had to jump to conclusions? We don’t know if its a racial incident. For all we know it could have either been more personal (since they were found to have worked together before) or a crime of incidence meaning he’d have done it to anyone that day just not knowing what was going on in his mind that day, or the cop either somehow didn’t hear the detainee or he did but ignored him indicating an intent to kill. Do you know how many encounters the police has with civillians a year? Theres like 50 million encounters, and so many people wind up dying by the police but in small amount compared to this many police encounters, somewhere around 1% end in fatality. Who knows how many incidents go under the radar that end in similar fashion? I heard of one case particularly involving a white individual who died by the hands of the police, ever heard of the David Shaver case, father of two kids and had a wife at home, white man. He was done dirty by the police too and highly presumed to be dangerous by the overly cautious and overzealous police.
      “Police Sergeant Charles Langley then ordered Shaver, who was lying prone, to cross his legs. Moments later, he ordered Shaver to push himself “up to a kneeling position.” While complying with the order to kneel, Shaver uncrossed his legs and Langley shouted that Shaver needed to keep his legs crossed. Startled, Shaver then put his hands behind his back and was again warned by Langley to keep his hands in the air. Langley yelled at Shaver that if he deviated from police instructions again, they would shoot him. Sergeant Langley told Shaver not to put his hands down for any reason. Shaver said, “Please don’t shoot me”. Upon being instructed to crawl, Shaver put his hands down and crawled on all fours. While crawling towards the officers, Shaver paused and moved his right hand towards his waistband. Officer Philip Brailsford, who later testified he believed that Shaver was reaching for a weapon, then opened fire with his AR-15 rifle, striking Shaver five times and killing him almost instantly. Shaver was unarmed, and may have been attempting to prevent his shorts from slipping down.[13][14][15][16] An autopsy report found that Shaver was intoxicated, with a blood-alcohol level over three times the legal driving limit, which police stated may have contributed to his confused response to their commands.[17][18]”
      Cases aren’t exactly similar but point is everyone can be done dirty by the police, i bet some cases are racially motivated as there is some bad cops, and they should not have their jobs, but also it doesn’t happen anywhere near as much as the media wants to portray it does. It is also the media that makes you feel like you have to jump to those conclusions.

    “Just following orders” isn’t an excuse for murder.

  18. Dear the rest of humanity:
    Stop being stupid

  19. I can’t believe the anchors were more angry than Omar. He’s just so calm.

      @Stealth Attack you won’t have none of these problems if people separate it will happen eventually anyway just like Yugoslavia. In Yugoslavia you had people who couldn’t seem to get along you had one ethnic group subsidizing all the others and it fell apart. Better a peaceful separation than a civil war.

      White people agree with you and are on your side! Don’t let fake news tell you otherwise.

    • Black people have to be calm or else they end up dead.

    • anton hexler | May 29, 2020 at 10:46 PM | Reply

      @Stealth Attack and Leftists and normal people can’t live together because Leftists want the Dysfunctional and Unproductive prioritized. The Right want High Functioning productive people prioritized people who are Responsible and aren’t a burden on others.

    • Do not blame anything here on one specific group. There are good and bad people from every group. There are even some good police officers I know I’ll get hate for that but that is the truth. Nothing can be blamed on a demographic when a person is not their demographic.

  20. Best if reporters wear authorized “press” vests in such situations, at least for safety if not for identification
