      He needs to go through the moon door. Im sure Minneapolis has one

      @DRIVERS LQQK if that’s the case this pass month is nothing compared to what the protesters and rioters may do next. I don’t think that they’re welling to even take that chance. They’ll be convicted.

    • The Real Deal | June 4, 2020 at 7:34 AM | Reply

      Chauvin could get 40 years. The other cops probably 25. They should be forced to live in the general population that way we can be done with them pretty soon. They won’t make it through their sentence.

    • The Real Deal | June 4, 2020 at 7:37 AM | Reply

      @stardustgirl that is hardly comprable to this case. Michael Jackson had that Dr around specifically to give him drugs. That doctor deserved the two years that he got at least. But he did not intentionally take the life of Michael Jackson. These cops committed murder. Intentionally.

  4. Wow why is the closed captions like a year behind?

  5. My sincere condolence to his family and friends.

    in case my comment is somehow misundertood, i wanna clarify that my condolence was for G. Floyd’s family and friends. Thanks.

      Micheal David How about he should have went to jail for that if that is the case. He shouldn’t have been murdered! If anyone do something like that they belong behind bars not murdered cause he was black! Did you see the white guy that did a double murder and he was babies and given water! Somebody like that deserve to be killed! If you killing people then the cops should shoot them down!

    • Micheal David aaaa

    • Beautiful Soul are you talking about the black masked Antifa that came in and caused trouble for black peoples?

    • Micheal David | June 4, 2020 at 10:20 AM | Reply

      @Beautiful Soul Who said it was because he’s Black? The Cop didnt say anything about his skin color. Heres a couple facts. White unarmed men get killed 25 percent more than unarmed black men. There is no Racism, its all a lie.

    • Sano
      I’m glad you clarified. At first it does come across wrong.

    Why!? Why is it so hard? If I did this, I would be in the electric-chair already!

      EliteGhost I believe it’s only a pandemic not epidemic and I know impeachment was dumb especially since there were probably more impeachable things he’s done than what they even chose. I think most Americans don’t trust either slimy old sack of scum and I plan to either vote Green if they are on the ballot or write in someone I feel is genuinely a better and more trustworthy option, my hero, Paris Hilton.

    • heavenly senju | June 4, 2020 at 6:26 AM | Reply

      @King L I’m not going to defend sensationalist media coverage by news companies because honestly, I agree with you. Those men should, at the very least, have gotten a manslaughter charge. But, let’s put it like this. How many Tony Timpa’s have you seen. Now how many incidents like George Floyd have you seen. Now maybe it’s that sensationalist news didn’t pick up other stories such as Tony Timpa, or maybe it’s that it does happen more to black people. Either way, shouldn’t we take this opportunity to make sure that cops are held accountable whether it be white or black?

    • @heavenly senju We should but we should also be aware of how this government operates. Trust me they want nothing more than race wars. There are some families who may never get the justice they deserve because no one cares about it. Hopefully these protests will shed light on all police brutality.

      Alex Ocasio-Gomez yea more whites die by the hands of cops then blacks do..look it up

    • @heavenly senju You’re clearly not capable of rational thought

  7. The 4 ex-cop looks like thugs.

      CB And Americans are obsessed with race you know latino isn’t a race same to being Arab you can be a white latino or white Arab or a black latino or a black latino they come from different shape and colors it’s just an ethnic group and plus does it matter. Usa is the only country telling people what race they come from that’s why there is many social issues plus lgbt communities, feminists and mutt lovers and more everyone think they are entitled those SJW

    • Lol their all felons now 😂😭 ohh how the mighty have fallen

    • theyll get whats coming to them one way or another

    • They look like cowards to me..

    • Roving violent MOBs are a real nice response.

  8. How is it gonna be difficult with solid video evidence?

    • Keith Mcmorrow | June 4, 2020 at 6:06 AM | Reply

      @nunya biznez why ? He was doing exactly what he was taught to do in the police academy .lol do lil research hero .lol

    • This case will be hard because those officers weren’t called to give George Floyd a Citizen of
      The Year Award!

    • without resurrecting Johnny Cochran, I’d say their chances of beating the convictions are slim and none.

    • Jane Johnson | June 4, 2020 at 11:06 PM | Reply

      sean gotti And what about those other people that were taking video and didn’t step in to help. Are they equally culpable?

    • Jane Johnson | June 4, 2020 at 11:06 PM | Reply

      Don’t think it was premeditated as horrific as it was

  9. You people in the media are despicable!!!!!

  10. Lets show the police what happens when they look away, if an officer is doing injustice! Good!

    • well they might have still been very concerned? like uhh guys i think we need to stop him

    • Maybe they did not believe George was really in trouble. After all bleep folks often way over dramatize when confronted by police.

    • stardustgirl | June 4, 2020 at 5:32 AM | Reply


    • stardustgirl I don’t know where the police was to protect the business and the people and the demonstrators. The police left the people alone … in the first night … and didn’t bring order to separate the looters from the demonstrators…

    • @Sasha TheOnly what arent you understanding, he’s asking what in what language does the name mean they and you tell him it’s a name and it doesn’t matter, you could have the same name mean two things or nothing at all in a different language.

      Floyd’s mother must be proud of her son’s accomplishments. He was a pillar of the community.

    • From the Futon | June 4, 2020 at 5:18 AM | Reply

      @Danny451 Fuentes Right! A rap sheet more than two decades long, including robbing a woman at gunpoint. At least two cocaine busts along the way; fentanyl was in his system upon his death, along with signs of meth use. Attempted theft (by way of passing counterfeit money) on his last night on Earth. The worldwide rioting can be largely traced back to him (along with government “leaders” who locked down healthy people for months).

      I completely agree, you’d think these cops would have some human decency but this is what the worlds true colors have come to be, sad.

  13. In future every citizen need to wear BodyCam for Evidence. World is getting weird.

    Why does Derek Chauvin’s mugshot not look like him?

    • Hibiscus Syriacus | June 4, 2020 at 7:24 AM | Reply

      @Gael Hidrogo It’s just lighting, the camera used and even his mood can change the way he appears. We saw him on video or a video still, so take that into consideration as well as whatever camera they used, lighting and his mood.

    They have a video of the man dying but they still need ”solid evidence” is that not solid enough?

    • ArtificialArtist | June 4, 2020 at 8:19 AM | Reply

      @DrummerJacob Oh so you don’t believe in a judicial system? YOu prefer street justice by cops who look for escalation to have some more fun in their often boring jobs? Firstly, police has no right to determine the guilt of any person, neither do you. That’S for a judge to decide. Secondly, you list up so many factors that you probably got off some “alternative” media outlet without once questioning it’s validity. Are you a judge? Do you have the evidence laid out in front of you? (Don’T worry, it’s a rhetorical question, the answer is clear already)

    • ArtificialArtist | June 4, 2020 at 8:26 AM | Reply

      @Daniel An It’s simply not true. A chokehold is NOT a viable means of restraint. You have 4 armed Officers who could have executed a much less dehumanizing method of constraint. There was no danger to the health of the officers, the only situation this chokehold would have even been justifyiable would have been if the cop was alone and waiting for reinforcements. He wanted to humiliate the suspect, he wanted to force obedience by means of overstepping his authority. Even if there are pre-existing conditions, it is also the duty of a cop to apprehend safely, for all parties involved. 2nd dgree murder is well deserved.

    • brad arnold | June 4, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      @Daniel An ya im sure thomas lane will go states witness and they will argue that lane wanted to move him and chauvin didnt want to.
      i think they had the 3rd easy. i think their going to go with the Excited Delirium death route cause by chauvin and disregarded advice from lane.and with each time he didnt listen to lane they could move it from there.
      shame thomas lane is getting treated dirty in all this.

    How can a conviction be hard there’s literally video proof it shouldn’t be hard at all…….

    • GrizzlyScalp950 | June 4, 2020 at 8:33 AM | Reply

      These arrests should’ve been made within hours of those videos. Too freakin slow these guys are.

    • Fuckus O’Reilly | June 4, 2020 at 10:54 AM | Reply

      It’s not the actions and facts that are hard to prove. What is going to be hard to prove is premeditation and intent. Things that are hard to prove in virtually all trials. Manslaughter here would be simple to prove just based on the video, murder goes a step further

    • @Fuckus O’Reilly Trump is already doing his best to have them pardoned when he suggests today in an interview “something just snapped” (in police minds).

    • Sunshyne07 Fl | June 4, 2020 at 1:48 PM | Reply

      Muz Wot quit lying stupid democrat..you all lie everyday..is there anything that’s not Trump fault..go worry about what Biden is doing..he’s probably lost some where..go find him

    • brad arnold | June 4, 2020 at 8:45 PM | Reply

      @Fuckus O’Reilly o they got man slaughter easy cause of what thomas lane said.

      Officer Lane asked, “should we roll him on his side?” Officer Chauvin said, according to the complaint, “No, staying put where we got him.” Officer Lane then said, “I am worried about excited delirium of whatever.”

      he asked this 2 times and was told no twice by chauvin. they will get murder now as this removes ignorance.
      and lane will go state witness this is half their case right here.
      just a shame thomas lane story isnt out there yet, but it will be.
