Video from a bystander showed then-officer Derek Chauvin pressing his knee on Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes. Chauvin and three other officers who were involved were fired, but many protesters say that's not enough.

    You forgot Chicago and Dallas.

    • You won’t believe what’s going on in Chicago. 5 armored police squad cars, completely *DEMOLISHED* in the same day…

    • Anders Holmvik | May 31, 2020 at 8:36 AM | Reply

      Do you mean the 50 shootings and 10 deaths that happened last weekend in Chicago. BLM is nowhere to be seen.

    • Hokage Itachi Uchiha | May 31, 2020 at 12:52 PM | Reply

      Anders Holmvik You can’t destroy culture. It’s just a lot of people in Chicago enjoy the culture of being in a gang, and shooting people. You can’t change it. All you can do is speak out.

    Wake up, my people! Justice must prevail at all cost!

    The time is now!

    • Yea justice would be all violent protestors and all protestors who were caught on camera go to jail that vandalized or stole anything or hurt anyone. Yes use facial recognition on anyone’s face that happened to show if they punched anyone or did anything wrong they need to be put in jail. I’m ok with the peaceful protestors but if the protestors who broke the law dont have to go to jail then the cops shouldn’t have to either.

    • Franklin Jones stfu

    • @SIZZER. I agree what the police did is wrong but I wont play but your racist double standards. If you believe the law has to be upheld for the cops then it does for any protestor who broke the laws too.

      This is Not Justice,, This is Vengence and Overkill. This one man is getting more support than Jesus Christ did. Christ died too, where the rallys for him?

    • Lopaya Siyan | May 31, 2020 at 3:42 PM | Reply

      Rinske Raphael okay but your not taking one eye by destroying things, your ruining lives and being cruel, you say eye for an eye more lie eye for America. That police deserves death but not everyone’s lives people are ruining what did target do to people, or malls, or cars, or any of that, NOTHING it makes no sense to riot it solves nothing, we need justice not riots.

    He didn’t die – he was murdererd . The Media needs to stop minimizing this.

  18. I can’t breath. Mama mama those words I can’t get out of my head. It’s so heart broken to see growing man yelling for his right to breath and the cop had his knees choking him. Remember this could’ve been your father or brother or mother or sister. God bless your soul Floyd and heals the heartache of your family in god name. Amen

      Not to diverge attention off of george’s case, but the us has been doing this to cooountless of civilians in the middle east alone, many people couldn’t breath from all their house rebel falling onto them

    • What a tragic one, Amen, may God bless him.

    • Don’t get so dramatic…
      70 shootings on asbestos block by local ngas every weekend..
      Sure.. them cops are scum..
      But like I said..
      Don’t get so dramatic..
      Black lives don’t matter.. if they did..
      Moolignans wouldn’t be shooting each other by the thousands in Chiraq..

    • The Comic Creatorz | May 31, 2020 at 9:06 PM | Reply

      David T I agree that was a little dramatic, but black lives do matter. It’s not okay to burn and destroy buildings, to me George’s death is an excuse for people to steal. But, again, black lives do matter

      If corona is fake then why did it kill thousands of people and dont say it’s the flu because scientists run tests to see if the flu and none said flu because I’ve watched someone get tested
