    Seems like Nazis rule in US instead of Germany 76years ago.

    • @P Robin Now I see it illegal immigrants first because a Democratic party needs more voters buy African Americans, Asian Americans, native Americans, veterans etc are being put on the sidelines thanks to your Democratic party who wants illegal immigrants to build the party and not the country. Open borders sanctuary cities for all free free free but if your homeless an American citizen will get to you soon as we get a chance but we need to protect our Democratic amigo come to America vote Democrat and you get what you want in return.

    • @CTM He’s not from USA. He loves Trump more than the USA.

    Everyone see the CNN reporter being arrested for doing his job, inclufing obeying all police instructors?

    It happened while he was live on air.

      @Deplorable Yes it is, If I could would vote blue – of course.

    • @karin backstrom – No, I get you are an atheist. When I said that if you claim to be a Christian you should at least read the Bible, I was talking about the guy I originally responded to.

      Yeah, I don’t disagree with ANYTHING you said. I am doing my part. I moved from Virginia to Florida. My vote didn’t really count in Northern Virginia because I lived in a very liberal county and city. I didn’t move to Florida just so that my vote would matter, I view it as more like an additional bonus.

      Anyway, I hope you stay safe and healthy.

    There is nothing that man could have done , prior to the cameras rolling, that would warrant his execution, with out a trial.

    I am also sick of having the same issue come up again and again.

    There is no mitigating evidence for kneeling on the mans neck for any amount of time, let alone for how long he did and not one of the other officers said a thing.

    • I bet you he was hoping donald would see the video and be proud.

    • Gary Woodruff | May 29, 2020 at 1:09 PM | Reply

      This officer that did that need to choke to death to at the end of a rope. Justice for all

    • Rich Greene | May 29, 2020 at 2:59 PM | Reply

      John Mcsorley These asswipes go to trump rallies.

    • I read that one of the other officers did say something, but the officer who was finally arrested and charged had by far the most seniority (19 years vs. 3 years) and they all backed off. If they had more courage to insist on what they thought was right, they might have saved George Floyd’s life, and it might have been a redeeming element for the decent officers out there. Instead, we have this thoroughly heartbreaking tragedy. Many people had long ago lost hope that law enforcement is fair and just. This takes us to lower depths.

    It was the KKK lynch mob from Minneapolis killing Floyd.

  8. The modern form of lynching nothing else.

    • Shawna Weesner :: I think I am going to leave this discussion. It’s not going anywhere. Please go and research American History.

      @Joe Moe I have a disciplined imagination. It has never been in my mind to watch in amazing detail the weak, filthy act of any murder. I find it difficult. I am very grateful they arrested him. I hope they bring them all to justice.

    • Colleen Kelly | May 29, 2020 at 10:06 PM | Reply

      for failure to do CPR on Mr Floyd! They didn’t even try & dumped him on the stretcher like garbage.
      We resuscitate AFTER no pulse all the time!
      Here’s proof:

    • @Colleen Kelly this goes against every decent human right now working so hard in the trenches to save lives, all lives.

    • Colleen Kelly . I had to get the rest in. The nerves on that man was also disrupted. That knee also cut off the nerves from communicating with the rest of the mans body. Like a electrical switch. He was not unconscious. 11, minutes under water is totally different than pressure on the neck where every nerve runs up and down. This don’t give the organs of the body time to adapt. Like slowing down breathing . This was a hanging in a very slow manner. Tortured to death. There are 2 large Veins on the side of each of us neck. Put your fingers there. I will leave you to think

    Gene you are a class act.

    Joe is absolutely correct, if the roles were reversed four black men would be in jail……

    • Its already happened. In Minnesota matter of fact. Google it my friend. Blk cop shoots white woman by mistake and gets 12.5 years in prison. He was responding to a call that she made and he shot her. His arrest and trial conviction took less than 2 months. As it should, but there are different rules for white cops committing crimes. especially murder

    • Nonsense

      @Deplorable Trump is going to die in prison.

    • Major Smith | May 29, 2020 at 1:10 PM | Reply

      Four black men would have just shot him.

      Joe is the mouthpiece of Communist MSNBC. Mika is a Communist Russian Jew.

    A brazen, out-in-the-open murder.

  12. Mr. Floyd didn’t die in police custody, he was MURDERED!

  13. Now they’re arresting black reports!

    • ErykaSoleil | May 29, 2020 at 1:53 PM | Reply

      kare more : *reporters

      I hope whoever thought that was a good idea gets into a whole mess of trouble.

    • Yes they walked over an arrested the black reporter but not the white one’s and they’re standing together reporting.

    • @lewisbale1 I am pretty sure the whole crew was arrested.
      There were 3 crew and one security person.All four were arrested —I presume it was an attempt to prevent anyone filming what they thought was going to happen next.

    This is hard to watch. Poor guy

  15. Richard Owens | May 29, 2020 at 9:44 AM | Reply

    We the people have the RIGHT to have the media cover such incidents – and, the police just ignored it! We have ALL been violated by this action!

  16. My son is 10 y/o, and I’ve already had to start having that talk with him. After I found out at age 10 black boys are seen as a threat. 10 y/o? A threat? My son likes anime and to play video games, crystal if an animal dies on a movie. Kind hearted and hardworking and very loving. I couldn’t imagine losing him to something so senseless. On top of causing him to have to worry and think about not being shot by the police because if hes playing and someone doesnt like his skin color he could be gone.

    • @Logic Police dude, what the heck!?!

    • @L Jeans the insecurity of an adult towards a kid, it’s funny he on the internet my son has been in martial arts since he could walk and continues to train in all the arts. He also is a grade ahead also so that comment shoes his insecurities towards a black boy even at 10. He made my point. Smh

  17. Until these cops are jailed that Miniapolis prosecutor has his knee on George!

    So I can get arrested for standing in the wrong spot? But a cop can’t be arrested for choking a man to death with his knee?🤯🤔😠

  19. Sherreal Hammond | May 29, 2020 at 10:31 AM | Reply

    If these officers are not charged and put in jail they will just move on to other departments and continue killing people. This is the problem!!!

    • Ahmad Turner | May 29, 2020 at 7:01 PM | Reply

      Yes and this is exactly why Kolin Kaepernick was kneeling in protest! There needs to be a penalty for those officers who cross the line, this was senseless! While watching the video I kept looking at the officers around him and despite pleads from the onlookers they said nothing and my thought was like what are they thinking while they hear this man say he can’t breath, like didn’t this just happen a fey years ago? And like didn’t these people learn anything?

    WHY those KILLERS haven’t been charged yet?!? The video footage shows it all that is needed and still no arrests?!?
