    Never ask a barber if he thinks you need a haircut.

    I hope this time its different but i won’t be holding my breath! Words are easy its the deeds that are difficult!

      You should hold your breath forever .

    • West coast Islander | June 9, 2020 at 1:32 PM | Reply

      You can make it change , use your vote and talk with your senators

    • Baby drumphf: What do you want to be “different” clown? Why don’t you care about thousands of black people killing each other every year? Because you’re a brainless turd that’s why.

  3. Why did Attorney General William BARR gas and attack peaceful protestors outside the White House?

    So the chicken could cross the road!

    YOU KNOW??? How many times does it take to watch somebody get murdered on TV to take action against this stuff!

      I saw a retired cop dying on the ground from a protester. Thats all it took for me to support military troops there.

    • think correctly | June 9, 2020 at 12:26 PM | Reply

      @Dave Schultz black people have been dying from lying white women, at the hands of police for years, yet all it takes for you is for you to see one person die, and now you’re convinced.

    • The local channels barely mention the 12 black men in Chicago and 8 in Indianapolis killed by black men 2 days ago. The national news didn’t even carry it.

    • @frictionRx9 Like you correct ?
      On here day after day, nothing constructive to add.
      Just your deluded racist jibber jabber.
      Day in day out on all the news feeds.
      Either retired or living in moms basement.

    • @Dave Schultz Really where ?
      Post a selfie, you know you standing there watching a man die, while you smiled and recorded it.
      Just like the four cops.

  5. Can’t trust this police chief until the police union is gone. If they got a system that protects bad cops, no accountability, then they can’t fix jack.

    • That depends on the police chief to fight the unions. Chief Brown, who was the police chief in Dallas until 2016, regularly and successfully went up against the unions to get rid of bad cops.

    • Ryan Anderson | June 9, 2020 at 6:46 PM | Reply

      Too true. They can’t even keep records of bad cops! How does that work for the public? Pure extortion.

  6. Action speaks louder than words. The people are tired of talk.

    • David's Garden | June 9, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      The action is under way. The murderer is locked up.

      @THE ANGRY QUAD Nah, that just leads to, “you’re not from around here huh?. And letting all their friends, family and kin in the area get extra privilege and slack. While if you’re a stranger you get harassed and used to meet illegal quotas with false charges.

    • THE ANGRY QUAD | June 9, 2020 at 8:40 PM | Reply

      @David’s Garden Agreed! Justice was served….

      @Ithikuss SSukihti With affirmative action! No Chance……

      @Ithikuss SSukihti That’s so hypocritical you have to be a radical communist.

  7. It’s time for America to wake up and fight for change the world has had enough of trump and his politics

    • david paglia | June 10, 2020 at 7:13 AM | Reply

      People in in these large cities say they want change but continue to vote for the same leaders!

    • david paglia you say that david but trump is something different altogether he’s a racist lunatic dictator and If you put those 3 together you have nothing but trouble he has turned America into the biggest embarrassment, liability and laughing stock on the planet right now his supporters are following him blinded by greed and stupidity he’s the biggest threat to world peace since Hitler and If trump was in the Middle East America would of invaded the country and took him out by now has a big threat to world peace to world peace like they did with Sadamm Husain he is the Sadamm Husain of the western civilised world

      @Steve Dee Hitler? The Chinese Communists are laughing loudest! They gave us the “Christmas gift” Kim promised the U.S..

    • david paglia without concrete evidence trump cannot blame the Chinese for deliberately sending a virus to the western world its ludicrous to even think so, he is a racist lunatic and a dictator and he’s the biggest threat to world peace since Hitler he says he doesn’t want America to police the world anymore but in the next sentence he says but don’t worry we have the oilfields secured in Syria Iraq and Saudi Arabia so he wants to bully the world instead time will tell wether the world has had enough of trump his supporters are following him blinded by greed and stupidity cause that’s what trump is all about greed and stupidity he has turned America into the biggest embarrassment, liability and laughing stock on the planet right now and people still support the lunatic I don’t get it he is telling other countries how they should behave and they can’t get their own house in order he’s a lunatic

    • david paglia | June 10, 2020 at 2:17 PM | Reply

      @Steve Dee Just a lucky prediction by Kim I guess. I back Trump because he is not a back slapping good ole boy! Non politician! He says what he means not what people want to here!

  8. We want no deadly force used. They are there to protect and serve all citizens.

    “The communities that need us the most are the ones we get away with beating and shooting.”

    Minneapolis is doing it. Self preservation mr cop. That’s rich. Don’t deflect. Stop lying. We need protection not terrorism from those who should be protecting us.

  11. Anyone who wants to continue funding a racist police department, is a racist.

  12. All those people of different color, creeds, and ethnic backgrounds who have all come together, have come to say “ALL LIVES MATTER.”

    Stop asking cops.

    They have a vested interest in maintaining their power.

  14. Guardiano777 | June 9, 2020 at 1:46 PM | Reply

    get rid of immunity, accountability needs to be held and stop bullying good cops for actually following the law and morals. the snitches get stitches code in the police force needs to go.

    Every American ALWAYS want better EVERYTHING!

    they need to get rid of the powerful police unions make police accountable for there actions that is all i want

  17. Please, if you call the cops in most “bad” neighborhoods they might show up the next day. They are paid to protect rich people and oppress everyone else.

    This police chief is the head of a department that murdered and assaulted dozens of people in recent years…..

    HOW. DARE. YOU. SIR?! HOW LONG WILL PEOPLE HAVE TO WAIT TO ACHIEVE THE GOALS WHICH YOU OUTLINED?? You think people haven’t been asking for this level of reform since the 1960’s?! Yes, you CAN have a professional and properly staffed police department. You need to explain to us why we SHOULD trust you to make the changes necessary so that wellness calls don’t end in MURDER. You need to explain to us why we SHOULD trust you to make the changes necessary so that traffic stops don’t end in the killing of unarmed people. Every time we’ve prayed, cried, died, bled, kneeled, asked, screamed- WHY SHOULD WE TRUST YOU NOW?!

  20. The guys in uniform are being charged with crimes… and everybody knows it.
