  2. brilliantly said, ty all. there MUST be justice!!

      When you say “there must justice” what you really mean is – he must be found guilty. Which isn’t justice.

    • Larry Garland | March 8, 2021 at 8:09 PM | Reply

      He’s dead. That’s justice for all of us.

    • well isn’t that ‘special’. a russian troll and a t** one commenting, polluting the comment section. bless their little pea-picking hearts…

  3. Because it’s not like there is video of the man killing Mr Floyd, flaunting it in public with zero worry about killing him or being held accountable for doing so. 🙄

  4. Chauvin wants to be innocent until proven guilty in court. A level of justice he and the other goons don’t show human beings on the street.

      The hubris is sickening.

      @Eric Graham like they even gave him a chance ? Ever heard of excessive force ? His apparent crime hardly warranted the type of treatment they acted with. Imagine the same scenario with a white guy in his place , do you really think the treatment would have been the same , I think not .

      @Eric Graham it was a misdemeanor! No one deserves to die over a misdemeanor! 5 cops vs one man. There was no resistance. There was no fight. It was murder we all watched while they killed him.

      @Dorothy Pettijohn there was plenty of resistance watch the bodycam footage and there was four cops not five.

    • @Max Shelltrack Exactly. The cops were super chill with him the whole time too

    I wish I had faith in this but I have none!!! I expect there will be violence when this cop gets off. Pathetic!!!

    Someone should have called 911 even if the police and the 911 are of the same political ideology. If this officer gets away with this they will ignite a firestorm.

      Not satisfied with Crump after Trayvon. The system is larger than Crump. Systemic changes and legislation and reform or defund the police. Its was a normal day until the cops showed up. They do as much damage as they disproportionately serve and abuse tbe community. The systems need too down reform. Better communities for police to enforce etc. Systemic problems larger than the police and larger than the individual. Macro.

      They did the people on the sidewalk arguing with the asian cop called 911 and were begging operator to send help!

    California support justice for George Floyd!
    Know justice-Know peace✌

  8. this was ‘cold blooded murder’ a heartless and cruel abuse of power . The World deserves Justice for George Floyd and the Soul of Humanity .

  9. 🤷🏼‍♀️just like the Worlds reaction to South Africa’s Apartheid. America should face the same consequence.

  10. There must be justice for George he was murdered in cold blood on video and the world watched .

    • @one name I did watch the whole video and it was unnecessary murder, period. You have a very cold and sad outlook imagine it was you or someone you loved just because a person is not a saint doesn’t mean that they deserve to die like that.

      @Dan Riley I’m probably wasting my time again but you most likely think that there couldn’t possibly be any mitigating evidence that the defence could ask the jury to accept, and yet there is, which is why I believe the jury will go for the reinstated third degree murder charge which carries a maximum sentence of 25 years If I’m right I just hope enough people will watch the trial to understand why the jury came to that decision and may help to lessen any public disorder after the verdict is reached.

    All the best brothers. Go get Justice for us all! ✊🏾✊🏿✊🏽

  12. We got to have justice, nothing less

    The hardest part will be seeing the defense trying to criminalize the victim!

    • I’m fairly certain most of his past is inadmissible… they will however focus on the fact he was high on drugs and uncooperative and was about to drive a van/suv while high on drugs, but it is what it is.

    • Gary Williams | March 11, 2021 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      @Mark Yer right, but even someone high on drugs and hand cuffed lying face down on the pavement can be murdered.

    • @Gary Williams I don’t disagree at all, the question I have is whether the hold killed George Floyd or if drugs did. I think that’s what a lot of the case will be about… I’m also curious if Chauvin can be guilty of something for not rendering aid to an unresponsive Floyd if for example, he has EMT training. I don’t know if any of the officers had EMT training or not, but I do know they had already rolled ambulances to the scene so I dunno.

    • Gary Williams | March 12, 2021 at 9:54 AM | Reply

      @Mark Watch the video, he was not laying on the ground with drugs on his neck saying “I can’t breathe” and the bystanders were not yelling at the cops to “get those drugs off his neck he can’t breathe! “

  14. Wish I was on jury, i would vote him guilty, and I am white. That was pure, ugly murder. That policeman was evil

  15. THERE is no DEFENDING his actions. ANYTHING LESS than a MURDER CONVICTION & DEATH SENTANCE will be a miscarriage of Justice.

      Blacks will have to boycott the system itself and keep our dollars amongst ourselves and our businesses. Buy our own Independent politicians and lobbyists.

    The man responsible should be held accountable for his death he knew exactly what he was doing and didn’t care

  20. First of all, prayers up for the Floyd family. There has to be a conviction for the modern day lynching of our brother Mr. George Floyd. If not, this will be living proof that nothing has changed in this country since 1619. For once, I pray that America gets it right!
