  1. 1st degree MURDER for the kneeling cop & accessories to murder for his Spectator Cops watching this murder take place for 6 minutes straight while Floyd was handcuffed…

      You mean the other two cops who were on his back??? There were 3 cops kneeling on his body when he died, and 1 keeping the crowd away! All of those cops actively murder him! You can only see the main cop on his neck, but there’s footage showing from the other side of the car and there are 3 grown men on him!!!

      Execute ALL 4 cops and jussie smollet for ruining AMERICA

    • @DimensionZombie – copy & paste troll

    • @Glory to God all four police officers were Democrats

  2. 1st degree for all 4 cops. They were all actively making sure that man died.

    People can be angry but sin not. People are tired of talk, lies and unjust rulers.

  4. Police believe they are above the law bottom line.

      There are more ignorant people here that think they are above the law. Everyone that is rioting and committing arson are all just as guilty. They are destroying their community and their fellow citizens. The all should end up in prison.

      So do blacks

    • @Michael Miller- I agree with you that the cops are ” just as guilty “– good call. Maybe you can be on the jury & convict & sentence the guilty parties of their murderous crime.

      You mean “some police”. If you lump everyone together you are part of the larger problem.

      People believe they are above the law but only some get punished.

    America is falling apart…😔😞

  6. I wish Olivia Benson was on this case

  7. People are tired of the racist police murdering black men.

    This is what happens when you have a blue brotherhood instead of a professional police force–the lowest common denominator wins every time.

      Even the Old Testament doesn’t say “Life & limb for an eye.” It limits “An eye for an eye.” And in this case there wasn’t even an eye involved. But a white woman like Wynona Ryder does NOT get killed on the scene when she actually shoplifts, so it seems that whiteys selectively apply selected biblical notions.

    • I believe, even if you had a police force entirely made up of one minority group, all Asian, all Hispanic, and yes, even all black, you’d still have bad ones in the force. One of the problems is, fellow cops/cop supervisors at all levels, know of these bad cops yet say nothing. They too should be charged.

      @Mcbeezee They’re all bad in ‘the force’ and the public are all bad. Uncle Joe said, ‘Where there’s a person, there’s a problem’. He killed 46 millions of Soviet people. Idi Amin killed only half a million. But was certainly less successful at building a modern nation.

  9. “Systematic Injustice exists and persists”

  10. By the looks of existing video, GUILTY. NO excuse for that treatment.
    However, also no excuses for the rioting/looting. Protesting completely legal. Rioting/looting is not.

    Yes. We should let them burn it all down and laugh at their children rooting through the ashes. We should definitely not rebuild anything.

    It’s the code of silence in cop culture the harbors the bad apples.

    • Jeremy West | May 28, 2020 at 2:07 PM | Reply

      This is a pretty solid point. I often find myself justifying the actions of officers. However, this is one of those cases where I would expect other officers to stand up and speak up. These bad apples set already troubled relations back even further and are not justifiable.

      If I was an officer I would not want to be lumped in with this group.

  13. Those cops were wrong no doubt. Setting a city on fire and destroying property is wrong no doubt. No one has to stand by and let that happen. eitherway

    Four police were WRONG.
    Crowds of looters and arsonists are WRONG.

    • Most of the protesters were neither arsonists nor looters.

      Did those actions occur before or after the shooting of rubber bullets and spraying of tear gas?

    • Polite protest does not do it, let the motherfcker burn and do not just look at this MURDER it follows a long line of black man MURDERS, what about those two female cops documented who killed fellow black man officer in his own apartment and another female cop who thought she had a black man intruder in her apartment when she was actually in his apartment, cop killed a black man in his car, 9 year old daughter in the back seat and the girlfriend filming the whole thing, the list is endless. It is time to BURN the fckn place down, the only way to go.

      @ruth depew Fred did not say protesters are wrong, he specifically said looters and arsonists. He did not say all police are wrong, he said these 4.

      Lumping groups of people into categories is what got us into this mess to begin with, Fred did well to avoid that mistake.

    • Richard Christie | May 28, 2020 at 6:20 PM | Reply

      @Jeremy West He inflated looters and arsonists to “crowds of looters and arsonists”. The subtext is clear even if you wish to be blind to it.

    • George Siglinger | May 28, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      @ruth depew You mean that Target store that was full of looters, So you say trying to control rioters in the street justifies stealing stuff and attacking a woman in a wheel chair.
