  1. You can’t expect HUEmanity from the inHUEmane. Yes i know how to spell before any cave descendants wanna comment on that. This will go over the high IQs heads lmao

    1. @Saunders Maxine
      That happened less than 75 years ago and not 300 years ago. See the difference or do you need cubes to do the math. There are NO SLAVES still alive.

    2. @Rosie Her where are all the “good cop” at to out and speak on the “bad cops” all we hear is silence or crickets, when it comes to “good cops”.

    3. @John Lucius
      How about the ones that have lives? The ones that died defending others? The ones that protect others? Open your eyes.

    4. hue means that something has color, so your joke really didn’t make any sense lol little comments like that are part of the reason racists hate the BLM movement that’s happening right now.

    5. We don’t speak the same language. My comment was for my people and they innerstand just fine. So…again you can’t expect HUEmanity from the inHUEmane. Still going over heads.
      Definition of white supremacy/racism(SYNONYMOUS WORDS)=A global system of people who classify themselves as white and are dedicated to abusing and/or subjugating anyone in the known universe whom they classify as not white. So…racist I am most certainly am not. Its not in my DNA, I don’t come from its inventors. Biased yes, prejudiced oh most definitely I AM. It is only logical knowing the history of mankind and how mankind operates, for me to be cynical. So racist no, PREJUDICED ABSOLUTELY. Also, being that we live under this global system NO THERE ARE NO GOOD KKKops. Impossible under this system. What u call good are the smiling nice actors. They still participate through complacency. I don’t care if they are black either before u come with that. ALL KKKops no matter the color, are the enforcement arm of white supremacy/racism.
      I made the original comment for any of my people that may want to go back n forth with people with no innerstanding. To say don’t waste ur energy or time and look at me lol going back n forth. So this will be my last comment.
      Good day Hueman and humankind! May u all have a day filled with learning, productivity, and positive energy.

    1. @Tru Guy
      It’s the truth. Not all blacks are being killed by cops. More whites are killed by cops and out there crying. It may hurt you but the facts don’t change.

    2. @Rosie Her How many Whites are killed *_unjustly_* by police. How many are killed unarmed?? How many of the cops that kill Whites are actually charged and sent to prison? Those are the real arguments. So by itself, you’re false talking point about more Whites being killed is not a refutation of the protest.

    3. @Rosie Her Funny how whites used Raw numbers when its advantageous to their rhetoric but use per capita on all other occasion. Sit down…

  2. Police badges are now tarnished. They are finally getting a taste of their own medicine. People are fed up!! Take away the motto “To protect and serve”. Now they are crying “no justice”. Too bad! Get rid of the rotten mouldy apples, “NOW!!

    1. @Rosie Her If all Cops weren’t racist they wouldn’t join a department that was built for the purpose of upholding Racism. Police are nothing knew they were once known as Slave Patrollers , their jobs were to return run away slaves died or alive to their slave owners. Maybe you should study the history of Police before you make such claims.

    2. @Saunders Maxine
      Get over it. That was over 300 years ago. Stop playing the victims when no one alive was ever even a slave

    3. @Rosie Her You haven’t stated a single verifiable fact yet. When you do make sure to cite your source.

    4. @Rosie Her Regarding slavery that wasnt 300 years ago. It was about 150 years ago. And even after slavery Blacks were re-enslaved through *Black Codes* up until WW2. You have a very bad case of Dunning Kruger. Though is is not entirely your fault. The American education system is pretty shoddy.

  3. Not just “reform”or “defunding”, BUT IMPLEMENT SEVERE PUNISHMENT FOR POLICE BRUTALITY AND HARRASMENT!!!!!!!!!!

    1. So take the guns from the police but citizens can still carry guns since its protected by the 2nd amendment? Whats the use for police then lmao

  4. “judge lest ye be judged” Holy Bible ;verse
    i just have a ferling this is a bad thing.
    just saying….

  5. Empires are driven by fear to do what they do. Genghis Khan genocide of millions of people because of his fear of not being powerful enough. Rome did the same thing so did ancient Babylon Greece and Egypt. Empire requires you to take from others. And the taking is done violently and unjustly.

    The problem comes when the empire takes and destroys so much that Humanity must be forced to act as a means of survival. This is why Empires are always short-lived and history shows us that no Empire is ever able to last more than a thousand years if that much. This video shows what is destined for every Empire that believes in Taking Lives taking and resources and land away from others.

    Or as the Bible says when you live and build by the sword you will be destroyed and killed by it as well. But material imperialist say to themselves I will die before I am ever held accountable and if that does not happen I will have a temper tantrum somewhat similar from what you see from the NYPD KKKops.

  6. The first speaker , I went and looked at the video. Your brother made huge mistakes. he didn’t check to see if it was in park. he was trying to leave, you are painting a false picture , In case you didn’t know A Pillar in a community does not act that way. With that said his warrants were minor , He posed no immediate threat to police. Making that shooting quiet questionable . I don”t see how that could be defensible judging by the video.
    2nd speaker , 1st off translator did not translate verbatim she painted her own picture. She doesn’t explain anything. Did he do something wrong ? If the there guns are drawn it is a felony search warrant. It is a lot of fuss with no substance. How is anybody to draw a conclusion? further after the chanting she said”please please justice” and that is not what the “interpreter” translated.
    3rd speaker same problem , tell the whole story. you cant draw any conclusion with that short narrative, Why was he pulled over? to many questions. how can anyone make a judgement ? Is there any reports on this ? it sounds horrific and wrong what happened to his nephew.
    I see instances that are justifiable in investigating and a demand for accountability and more officer training. But when you come out with some questionable narratives. I would think not on purpose,but not clarified at all. There is no statute of limitations on murder. How about a demand of independent investigation into these occurrences. As well as demanding accountability in society. Instead of an ignorant statement of de-fund police. Unless your into double the murder rate from vigilantism .
    I am just an outsider looking in. and simply giving you my view.

  7. What I like about this title is its recognition of families of those who have lost their loved ones

  8. Firing is a HOLLOW DEMAND!!!, without the appropriate Felony Charges, accompanying them being FIRED!!. Because in Brevard County Florida, the Sheriff was sending Hiring invitations to the Buffalo, New York NYPD, New York, NYPD and Minneapolis, MN MPD. So firing them is just a Transfer Option. No they need Murder Chargers Mandatory!!! No Less than Murder 2.

  9. Police are valued and a critical part of what makes our society free and safe. For protesters and activists to jump on the circumstances of what happened to George Floyd and use this tragedy as a scapegoat and excuse to commit crimes or support crimes is even worse – be ashamed you’all !

  10. Didn’t see the story unfold this way about Allan Feliz arrest. Had 3 active warrants and tried to run when he couldn’t charm his way out. Gun went off in the struggle. Officer did not want to shoot.

  11. If you defund the police, who will come when the people with guns who hate you come to wipe you out? Remember you don’t believe in guns or God. So who will defend you? That’s how genecide starts. Lawlessness!

  12. Does part of police funding go to these families? Many times the police are the real thugs because we the people can’t track the bad from the good to hold them accountable. The cowards expect to get away with brutality because there’s no one to police them. I guess we need a Police of the Police!
