  1. hahaha what a joke.love how they waste money on burying a mannequin.this just shows u how far the elite will go just to divide a nation and u all fall for it everytime.and btw still havent seen a body hmmmmm

    1. Purple Raindrops FOR me Real Heroes die everyday back from A War Zone! WHAT MAKES HIM A HERO! NOTHING….DID HE DESERVE TO DIE NO, DID MY SON NO! Was my son buried in a gold casket NO, WHY ALL THIS, BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE DIE AT THE HAND OF BAD POLICE. THEY ROBBED THE PUBLIC TO PAY FOR IT ALL FOR GEORGE!!!! MY FRIENDS CHILD DIED IN A DRIVE BY SHE WAS 3 years old no one in the Black Community or Black lives Matters did anything no protest, no money, nothing she was a HERO, NOT CRIMINAL GEORGE! But a gang member or members did so they are their Heroes. Like George…

    2. Clifton Wood Nothing is worse than losing an innocent Child to senseless violent crime My poi t is George was engaged in a life of violent senseless crime he’s no hero Cop and cops in his case yes they are wrong and should not be cops punishment yes they must be punished did George contribute to his own death yes he is as responsible as the cops

    3. Karl Ross y should they be tho they’re obviously just family and friends of him, if one of your family died but did a crime I bet you’d go to there funeral
      No hate, just saying bro

    4. oscarEU You have a point however during a few of the funerals not one person attended that even knew him

  2. How much embalming fluid was put into this poor guy? He’s going all over America for funerals.

    1. Karl Ross AMEN….”THEY SAY TRUMP” AND I DO NOT SUPPORT HIM. BUT HE DIVIDED THE COUNTRY HA HA. AL SHARPTON HAS BEEN DOING THAT FOR YEARS. I WISH MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS STILL ALIVE, AT LEAST HE CARED FOR ALL PEOPLE.

  3. “Blacks stop shooting Blacks” needs to be also said at Public Protests, just look at Chicago.

    1. Excuse me? What the hell does black on black crime have to do with a lynching? Please explain.

    2. Kris Dunwoody I have been posting that for many many years to deaf EARS, MY BLACK FRIEND LOST A DAUGHTER TO A DRIVE BY, NO GOLD CASKET, NO BLACK LIVES MATTER, NO FUND TO HELP HER PAY. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT GANGS KILLING THEIR BABIES, CHILDREN, TEEN AND YOUNG MEN. THEY ARE THEIR HEROES TOO!!!! NO PROTEST WHEN GANG MEMBER KILL THE INNOCENT WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE JAMIE FOXX, AL FAKE SHARPTON, OPRAH & GAYLE FAKE CRIER…AND ALLTHE OTHERS WHO DO NOTHING EXCEPT WHEN IT PUTS YOU IN THE SPOTLIGHT….MOST PEOPLE AT THE FUNERAL DON’T CARE JUST WANT TO BE SEEN. I WOULD RATHER ATTEND A REAL HEROES FUNERAL BACK FROM THE WAR, WHERE ARE YOU ALL THEN HYPOCRITES….

    3. Kris Dunwoody see what I mean, they will make excuses, like call it a lynching!!! For God sake…when the kill a 3 year old…Like gangs never lynched another black gang member sure!! They are known to do awful ugly things. They do not care if they kill their own!!!! Even babies….

    4. @mali carter when its 90 dead in 1 night. Its needs to be front and center. Lynching or not. It cant go on any longer. Pretty sure that qualifies as a war zone.

    5. What do you think of an abusive husband who swears he’ll protect his woman from “others” but beat the crap out of her at home?

    1. Ikr, no one talking about David dorn he was unarmed retired black cop got killed by black protesters,

  4. The same feeling. The USA is crazy. A drug addict and a bandit are turned into a hero. Sick on the head

  5. George Floyd’s family lawyer has sent a request to UN appealing for intervention in the Investigation into his killing.

  6. Comments being erased and ghosted…. We are in big trouble. Entire world is being deceived by Media

  7. Funny and sad… Mr. Dorn’s murder means nothing to these hypocrites.
