    Stop the madness. Arrest the other officers.

  2. America has been deceiving the world…There is no true democracy or justice in America

      @Jamie Jay After watching this video, you still say America is awesome ???? You are totally brain dead. I would feel much safer in Mexico, or an African country, than your “awesome” den of iniquity. You currently have 1,805,745 confirmed cases of COVID-19, which accounts for 30% of global cases, and 105,159 fatalities from the same, which accounts for 29% globally. By comparison, Mexico has 87,512 confirmed cases, with 9,779 fatalities. Compared with the USA, Mexico’s corruption pales into insignificance. The hardest his African nation is South Africa, with 30,967 confirmed cases, and 643 fatalities. Africa isn’t a failure, my friend. You are.

    • @Don Anderson Lame name calling doesn’t dispute my comment…..you’re weak.

    • @wally crail Most of Africa is considered 3rd world. Covid19 numbers don’t mean that much considering there is a 99% recovery rate. Mexico is dangerous and corrupt. I get the feeling you’re uneducated.

    • @wally crail You should haul away to Mexico. You wouldn’t be missed.

    • @wally crail America is awesome! People like you are not. That’s for sure.

    We’re in the middle of a COVID-19 pandemic that killed more than 100K Americans, left more than 40 million unemployed, and radically changed our lives. The top 1% only got richer while the rest of us are suffering. Conditions are ripe for George Floyd to spark a revolution here.

      @A without a structure, it wouldn’t do any good. America has fallen and I’ve never been more ashamed to live in this country

      It’s most definitely happening but people need to leave other innocent people alone. I watched people’s car windows get smashed in while they are in them. Cops are the enemy not the people

    • I can only imagine what these people could accomplish if they were coordinated in an attempt to retake the country from the hands of the billionaires and corrupt politicians

      Is it 40 now? Thought it was 30m unemployed?


    • @Celtic Whisper naww. We want them convicted too.

    • Exactly

      Arrest the protesters.

    • PC Principal | May 30, 2020 at 7:59 PM | Reply

      Y’all acting like if they’re not arrested now, they won’t get arrested at all. But what y’alls don’t realize is to build a case the investigation needs time. Y’all mad about the 3rd degree murder charge, but the DA didn’t find enough evidence to make it 1st degree cuz y’alls are rushing the investigation. If y’all want them to be convicted then wait until they finish the investigation

      @PC Principal Y’all talk like a brain dead Yanktard.

    “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.” I can’t blame these people for feeling frustrated, and I can’t judge them for lashing out. Their pleas for justice have been falling on deaf ears for decades. This is America reaping what it sows. WE did this to ourselves.

    • TheGamingAsian | May 30, 2020 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      I get it. It sucks that responses to such messages so slow. But violence would only prove that we are no better. It really really sucks, but we cannot be held credible if we resort to the same injustices. It’s just not right. I know I’m walking into fire suggesting this kind of thing, but take it what you will. The way I see it, with the looting and the violence, it might not be damaging collectively in a broader perspective, but think about the shop owners who simply want to run a business or the simple, morally correct policeman doing and believing in their job. If we hurt one innocent, we stain our hands. As much as I want to throw fists in the next battle, it won’t win us the war.

    Looks like a scene out of Syria or Iraq

  7. The powers that be reap what they have sown.

    • Yeah, and these “protesters” are sowing their OWN seeds which future George Floyds will undoubtedly reap. No better way to *GUARANTEE* that you’ll be treated with disdain, resentment and violence in the future by the police than acting like a rabid animal today.

    • @Mario GOP rightwing white supremacist infiltrators. Obviously.

      At this low point in America’s history, the SpaceX Dragon take-off did give me some hope for the future.

      “As you press on for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.” Martin Luthor King Jr. (1956)


  13. They called for an ambulance and kept his neck pinned. 3rd degree?

    Agitators? You mean the four policemen? They’re the ones who started the agitation. Scum, every one of them.
