  1. No one on Wall-street gets murdered for fraud

  2. This is a police chief issue like this black officer

    He should be in jail already

    The main point of this whole incident was that the police did not regard this man as a fellow human being. There is no way that they didn’t know what was happening, they just didn’t care

      bobb Vomm Yes, that’s what they believe! I’m so sick of it that I feel like I could go and vomit on a policeman. Much Love to all!

    • Elaine Abug | May 28, 2020 at 6:00 PM | Reply

      Yup. Even someone whose not a police knows its dangerous to put your knee like that behind someones neck! They just didn’t care. What they care is that showing people their power, thinking they’re gods that should be bowed on to.

      @Elaine Abug I agree some cops need to feel like they’re powerful when they’re on the job because they can’t feel that otherwise. Insecure people and sadists and racists should not be allowed to be policemen. Definitely they need to be vetted better in Minnesota

      @Life and Home with Meredith No. You don’t feel that way. I’m Black & I don’t feel that way. What we will not do is disrespect our PROFESSIONAL men & women of law enforcement because we absolutely need them and they DO help us. We just have to weed out these bad apples.

      BossTeamEntertainment I’m sorry I wasn’t clearer. What I meant is that is how frustrating this is . No I would never do that to someone. I just don’t know how to describe how sick I feel inside. I know not all cops are bad. I have had a bad experience with cops before. Not all of one race or organization is bad. I know there are bad apples. I just don’t know what to do with myself. I go between crying my eyes out and anger. I want to do something but I don’t know what to do.

    “Arrest him ,arrest him now”

  6. Dwayne Rose | May 28, 2020 at 4:20 PM | Reply

    The charge of murder is obvious. Identity of officers obvious. Witnesses? You bet. So explain to me why no arrests.

  7. Lloyd Acton | May 28, 2020 at 4:25 PM | Reply

    The man was murdered. The video speaks for itself.

    • The man was tortured and executed in an excessively cruel fashion. This is not racism, its maniacal and sadistic psychopathy.

  8. SteelersPenguinsPirates | May 28, 2020 at 4:26 PM | Reply

    Yeah I’m not going to Minneapolis anytime soon

    Arrest the four officers, charge them with murder. Strip them of their pensions and ban them from ever working in law enforcement again. This is everyone’s issue.

    • Elaine Abug | May 28, 2020 at 5:55 PM | Reply

      They’ve had previous complaints against them. And they weren’t charged! If they get away with this, with all the evidence there is, I wouldn’t be surprised. Police hid behind the law like scared cats when they’re in trouble.

    • Lipstick Capone | May 28, 2020 at 6:10 PM | Reply

      The main officer deserves his legs amputated 😈 and left to rot to death!!

    • And jail them

    • I’m sorry to say that if they are charged with murder there is a high chance they will go free… It’s one of the ways something like this will have no consequences, a friendly district attorney will charge the officer with murder instead of manslaughter. And murder would be very close to impossible to prove because it requires the attorney to prove beyond reasonable doubt premeditation/malice in the officers intent. Unless he said something that got caught on camera that supports it a first/second degree murder will see them walk free. Even if it’s clearly what it is.

      Death penalty.

  10. If not for the videos, the people who killed Mr Floyd and Mr Arbery would never be brought to justice for their crimes.
    Think about how many times this must happen when no one is there to see it.

    • They won’t be punished anyway. This is not the first case, they always get away with it some ways

    • AnonyPersona | May 28, 2020 at 4:56 PM | Reply

      It’s 2020 man, almost all large PD’s have body cams/dash cams and there’s surveillance videos almost everywhere. In every death, there’s always an investigation. People will see most of the times when there’s wrongdoing. Will we catch every bad cop? No… but it’s not like this is happening extremely frequently like you suggest.

    • @Aury * 😡

    • King Solomon | May 28, 2020 at 6:09 PM | Reply

      @Aury * This is a tipping point. The civil unrest and repercussions of this are and will be far and wide. This one feels a whole lot different. There is much more mass anger and rage in people than Ive ever seen really. Only thing that comes close is Rodney King. We will see.

    • Well said… When it comes to Murder. The government can use all cell data to incriminate us/civilians. Which goes far beyond what you can imagine. These smart phones are recording 24/7 whether we want them to or not. There must be at least 50 smartphones within 50 ft of that murder. ( Unless you have a blockchain phone. ) But why would they use that data or info to screw themselves further. What if its ten times worse than the horrible Murder we just witnessed. It would cost them more money and a much bigger backlash.
      “FBI is looking into it” I think we have seen how corrupt they are…. Its like investigating yourself. My question is. Who investigates the investigators? In my opinion this is Premeditated 1st degree murder!
      I never comment but, I’m kinda fired up.

    Could you imagine if one of the onlookers went over and pushed the officer off George floyd I bet the onlooker would have been arrested for assaulting a police officer

      @Samantha Aramboles , im a murderer because i called out a pretentious fake tough guy who said he would risk death by punching a group of police officers who was arresting a black guy? yea i dont think so.

    • George Esquivel | May 28, 2020 at 5:56 PM | Reply

      @Space Alien what tough guy act? You’re delusional to the point of picturing me in your scenarios as being the person that you truly are . Don’t project your cowardice on others.

    • George Esquivel | May 28, 2020 at 6:00 PM | Reply

      @Space Alien  Space Alien  since you are a space alien you should know the importance of life and also its insignificance compared to the universe. Maybe you will find your own conviction and importance to your own life someday.

    • George Esquivel | May 28, 2020 at 6:03 PM | Reply

      @Space Alien also no punches would have been thrown. But you are also missing the point. If I had intervened and tackled him, or even gotten near..there is a chance that I would have gotten arrested in a best case scenario, or worse.. shot. This shouldn’t happen but its what all the people around cops fear all the time. If I had tried to save a man from the cops there is a chance that I too would be dead

    • King Solomon | May 28, 2020 at 6:13 PM | Reply

      @Space Alien Some people would. Very few, but some people can do nothing but react when a certain nerve is hit. There is much more rage in people about this than Ive ever seen. This is a tipping point and hits different.

    Don’t worry, yall, the cops are sure to get a paid vacation for their hard work of killing the innocent.

  13. Patrick Serrano | May 28, 2020 at 4:38 PM | Reply

    Injustice in a faulty system.

  14. Not one cop has the balls to say enough he can’t breathe, get off of him. A bunch of cowards with a badge!

    • @manaohar samtani So if 4 out of 4 were complicit in murder what’s The Ratio of bad apples to good APPLES???

    • @manaohar samtani True! but either this cops are power abusing or they are racists! they simply didnt care at all!

    • They’re not cowards. They’re doing what they are paid to do.

    • Michael Brown | May 28, 2020 at 7:35 PM | Reply

      That’s the thin blue line. They have each others’ back. When one commits a crime, big or small, the other blue thugs back him. Police in this country are nothing more or less than a violent gang flying their blue color proudly.

    • @Ertu where is murdering detained suspects in the job description????

  15. Beverly Vinson | May 28, 2020 at 4:45 PM | Reply

    The whole world seen what these cops did ..they commited murder . One did the act and OTHERS were COMPLiCENT IN holding him down and watching him and taunting him and making fun of him .
    They were very comfortable in their acts if aggression and murder .
    Dont think they havent done this before ..they have !!

    • Google — Chauvin Has Been Involved In Use-Of-Force Situations Before. Also just like a serial killer they start small and work their way up. once you see violence done to another human they should be rejected from the force and never to hold a badge again. problem with firing someone they will just get a job in another county.

    • @Beverly all three cops murdered him. They all have blood on their hands.

    • Philly B I agree. There were 4 cops.

    I would of been under the jail by now.. *HE NEEDS TO BE BEHIND BARS ASAP.* Riots won’t stop

    Giving the fact that the officer had a prior police misconduct, would make a good case for his immediate arrest.

    Edit: misconductS

    We need more officers like this gentleman who understands the meaning of protect and serve.

  19. Miguel Gutierrez | May 28, 2020 at 5:00 PM | Reply

    They did this with people watching imagine when people are not around.

  20. He was murdered in broad daylight, we need justice in the U.S.
