    I can’t imagine what this family is going through. 😪

      Thanks you have a heart 👍

    • This family has been going through this for 400 Hundred years, it culminated on this street for this particular family on this day. George should still be living! WE ALL share their pain!!

      They are showing us what they are going through. Their pain is undeniable. He was the light of their family, you can tell. Truly heartbreaking.

    Of course trump didn’t let him speak because racists don’t care what black people think or feel. The only reason trump called was So he could say he spoke with the family.
    My prayers are with the Floyd family and all communities affected.

      trump isn’t a racist he has done 10 fold what obama ever did for the black community. this is all a shame and terrible, but you can’t blame trump for this.

      Who are you and “they” who is “they”. Stop with the collective pronouns. Shows you only judge and have no real solutions.

      Trump never spoke WITH the family, he obviously spoke TO the family and probably only one family member at that! We here in Australia are with Americans of colour. We have a lovely and proud relationship with our indigenous community over here. It took one Prime Minister over here to be big enough to say a heartfelt “SORRY” to our community of Aborigines and that’s all it took. We’ve gone forward in leaps and bounds ever since.

      Riot until there’s some serious bills passed on police reform! I’m sorry but it’s discusting how easy it is for police to execute people enough is enough.

    • @Cynthia Wecksler Were about to cry, but as soon as we saw the people burning businesses in their City, that changed to anger!

    • @Sunito Vassacu so you want all Black to go back to Africa? You just another Racist.

    • yawn

  5. They should all be charged anybody else would if they was there involved with murder any one of them could of told to get off him

      Maria Costa those pigs woulda shot you claiming self defense

    • One of the savages stood guard, armed, preventing anyone from interfering. However, as each of you said the other useless savages assisting in the murder could have easily reasoned with the main savage murderer and ended it. Sorry, couldn’t figure another way to say it.

    • @Maria Costa I have so much respect for the restraint that the witnesses showed. I cant imagine how difficult it was to beg for them to stop without physically intervening. That poor guy is scarred for life.

    • @Ali B I’m sure the witnesses understood the risk that they’d be tazed or even shot if they tried to intervene. Horrible situation to be in.

      @maxhugen I always video when I see something going down usually it causes the pigs to restrain themselves
      They don’t like it
      Last one was a vietnam vet in wheelchair who bummed a cigarette at the VA
      The pigs don’t like it
      It won’t be long before the bystanders aren’t just standing around
      This country needs to change for the better
      And quick
      It might be too late

    So very sorry for this family’s loss. And so sorry that trump is president


    • @Monsieur Mike you’re on this comment thread for attention

    • @C Klan Of course I’m sorry he’s president. I’m sorry 3,000,000+ fewer people voted for him and he won anyway. I’m sorry he represents us on the world stage. I’m sorry he lies. I’m sorry he’s a coward. I’m sorry he’s a conman. I’m sorry he’s a criminal. Most of all I’m sorry he called that grieving family. I’m sorry because I’m not an uncaring a-hole.

      @Mart Met Laughed at by who, commie rats like yourself?.That’s laughter I cherish from people who almost nominated a communist like bernie breadline, and attempted to overthrow our Government with the aid of their marxist media muppets..How deliciously ironic is it that leftist hatred for all things orange man led them to the very building(Commie News Network) that fed them hatred and propaganda nonstop for the last 4 yrs..Now that was hysterical, my friends and I are still laughing..As for racism, the demokkkrat communist party, just like clockwork, are pushing racism once again in the lead-up to President Trump’s Landslide victory in November, and once again it will fail..BTW, I said me & “MY” friends, not me & white friends, but that’s an assumption you commie rat’s always make because of your faux moral superiority, when facts, historical and contemporary, would most assuredly argue otherwise..As for ignorance, you can take that and wax your wife’s balls..After all, I’m not the one who for 4 yrs supported the Russian Collusion Delusion and Ukrainian quid-pro-quo despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary..It’s all coming out now for the world to see, and that includes your monumental ignorance..

    So sad. Innocent until proven. guilty. George Floyd was not resisting arrest, and didn’t get a chance for his arrest, now murder.

    • Cavernous Hoe | May 30, 2020 at 9:33 PM | Reply

      The cops are also innocent until proven guilty.

    • How many people rioting are lazy and don’t have jobs? Guarantee you it’s like 90%.

    • He did break the law though, which is exactly what these rioters are proving. Lawbreakers, all of them.

    • Killer racist cops strike again. They need to be charged with murder (all four of them) and given the death sentence. Nothing else is satisfactory.

    • @Mulinaster how did he break the law? Counterfeit money is passed around without most people knowing, because its forgery is almost identical to real money. I has them & so have people.

    I am sorry for your loss. Everyday I pledge to continue to treat everyone else I meet with the respect that they deserve regardless of our differences.

      To bad the people in the hood don’t respect anyone

    • @Freedom & Liberty Bot Perhaps that’s because if you live all your life of CONSTANTLY being DISRESPECTED, it’s just impossible to have respect for others.
      It’s also difficult to impossible to be able to tell the difference between who respects you and how PRETENDS to respect you.

      Blondie SL it is not impossible to have respect for those who don’t respect you. That’s the saving grace, no one has authority over our perception but us.

    Poor family! I hope they get justice and find a sense of peace. All this attention isn’t healthy for them, not allowing them to grieve.

      @Freedom & Liberty Bot STFU writing this under every comment, you piece of sh*t!!! Violence from the state is entirely different than violence between civilians and you effing know that, you racist bootlicker!!

    • Separate Realities | May 30, 2020 at 7:59 PM | Reply

      The only justice that cop will get, is a shank, in the shower by another brother. Of cource they will make sure he’s in a safe place in prison.

    • Separate Realities u know if any black man found out if that officer is in the same vicinity, he is literally a dead man walking

    • @Separate Realities He wont see a proper prison homie he’ll see club Feb were most of the clowns in said prison will be in for non violent crimes. I pray they send him to a level 4 yard and a brother will poke him up

  10. Don’t let them off that easy.. put them on death row in general pop for as long as it takes.

      There is no death row general population.

    • Yep.

    • @Dekan Elad He was fired. I don’t call that scot-free. He’s not a cop anymore. He lost his career and he has to live with this murder for the rest of his live, as well as knowing the damage that he caused.

    All 4 officers need to be held accountable for George Floyd murder..Rest in Paradise Mr Floyd 😪💗

    • Death penalty and 1st degree murder charges for these murderous cops.

    • F. Carlos Del Mundo | May 30, 2020 at 9:18 PM | Reply

      There is actually no paradise. When one dies, that one stays dead. It makes it all the sadder – America has got to stop pretending that it is a country that stands for something decent. It’s all a sham of a social contract.

    • Ate you that stupid the cop have been placed under arrest already and charged with murder and these thugs and rioters need to be shot as we have rights to protest but not be criminals plain and simple and these business owners should have the right to protect self and property

    • F. Carlos Del Mundo we cant say for sure if there is a paradise or not. Let us be humble and simply say we don’t know.

    • KZ Thank you for weighing in with your verbal diarrhea of racism and hate speech. You’re calling for MORE innocent Black Americans to be murdered.

  13. Nobody should ever feel this pain. I’m sorry your brother was killed. 😔
