      @FENTENAYL FLOYD will you shut up full stop George Floyd died under the knee it’s been confirmed period so keep your disgusting comments to yourself BLM ✊✊

  2. If the bystanders were hostile, Floyd would be alive and Chauvin wouldn’t be on trial for murder. He would have been sent to the hospital.

    • Leon Francis | April 7, 2021 at 5:06 PM | Reply

      @Wisconsin Man That would actually be lovely. Instead of causing one murder that can be defended with some form of plausible deniability, you’ll go on a murder spree and leave no questions as to what just happened.

      I wish cops would be this dumb. We would have police reform tomorrow.

      Unfortunately, they’re smarter than that in how they break and skirt the laws they’re meant to uphold.

    • @FENTENAYL FLOYD You need to do more research and stop watching tucker Carlson. The officer who trained Chauvin, on the stand said, he never taught Chauvin that restraint and neither of the coroners reports say Floyd died of drug use. The reports states, Floyd died of cardiac arrest and restraint/compression. Stop adding your own opinions in of how Floyd died.

    • 💯👏

    • FENTENAYL FLOYD | April 7, 2021 at 7:04 PM | Reply

      @tony smith YES… THEY DID.

      The estimated lethal dose of fentanyl in humans is 2 mg. The recommended serum concentration for analgesia is 1–2 ng/ml and for anaesthesia it is 10–20 ng/ml. Blood concentrations of approximately 7 ng/ml or greater have been associated with fatalities where poly-substance use was involved.

      FENTENAYL FLOYD- 11NG OF ILLEGAL FENTENAYL.
      METHAMPHETAMINE- 19NG.

      AKA a SPEEDBALL.

      Respiratory failure is particularly likely with speedballs because the
      effects of stimulants wear off far more quickly than the effects of
      opioids.
       For example, fatal slowing of the breathing can occur when the
      stimulating cocaine wears off and the full effects of the heroin are
      felt on their own.

      @tony smith DO YOU KNOW WHY GEORGE FENTANYL FLOYD’D FAMILY PAID FOR AN INDEPENDENT AUTOPSY? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  3. THE “DEFENSE” IS CREATING ITS OWN SCENARIO THAT NEVER HAPPENED, TRYING TO USE FLOYD’S BODY DEMENSIONS AGAINST HIM WHEN OBVIOUSLY CHAUVIN SURROUNDED BY HIS BUDDIES KEPT HIS ENTIRE WEIGHT ON A HANDCUFFED PERSON TO THE POINT OF DEATH WHILE HE RELAXED, HAND DEEPLY IN HIS OWN POCKET. CHAUVIN NEARLY CREATED A LAZ-E-BOY CHAIR WHILE SNUFFING OUT THE LIFE OF A HUMAN BEING.

    • Wisconsin Man | April 7, 2021 at 4:09 PM | Reply

      @psycobleach46 tullis Not bright are you. Chauvin had 1 knee on the ground, which will take pressure. Crowder BOTH knee’s were on him causing more pressure. As Steven said, when he did lean up and put weight on knee off of him he could tell a difference in LESS pressure.

    • You creating own scenario. Facts was that drugs killed him and he didn’t died from choke. You just want an innocent man in jail.

    • @FENTENAYL FLOYD Mr. or Ms.! One precious human being was abused and killed by wrongdoers..Please stop your joke. 🙏🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽🙏🏾🙏🏿

  4. Most angry mobs don’t call 911 asking for more police.
    Try harder, Defense! 😅😂

    • @WILL FARGO Doesn’t matter. It’s a troll, trying to gaslight with a “What about this other thing?” red herring. If all someone online has has is a logical fallacy, I ignore, whether I suspect they’re a disingenuous troll or a deliberately obtuse one.

    Why do murders caught on tape have to go to Trial?

  6. This was clearly and obviously murder.

    • Thank you

    • @Wisconsin Man Stfu racist and elect a Senator in 2022 that’s not racist like you

    • @Doge Moon You’re a racist who supports racist white cops lynching handcuffed unarmed unresisting Black people in broad daylight

    • @tony smith That’s one lie the jury knows he told.

      @TheLuscious Hey short Bus rider, Try looking up the definition of a racist oh, 5 years ago, means something totally different than what it does today. Then tell my Half Black Wife and my Filipino daughter in law what it means.

    Mr Chauvin, the moment you casually put your hand in your pocket while kneeling on the man’s neck it was clear that you did not perceive any sort of threat anywhere in your environment.

      @Wisconsin Man do they do this to white women resisiting arrest?

    • @Wisconsin Man “Like the Coroner said Fentanyl and METH is what killed him?”, actually the Coroner said the EXACT OPPOSITE of that.
      The Coroner said that the drugs were present but NOT a cause for his death.

      Gaslighting, which is what you just did, is such a low pathetic act of racist bigots.

    • Hollis Bessone | April 8, 2021 at 8:46 PM | Reply

      @Ivan McBleedy I don’t understand how or why they continue to try to defend him.

  8. If was so afraid why did the murderer have his hands in his pockets. There is no doubt period, this was murder. Sick

    • this was not murder floyd was on crack ,,,he was smoking the glass pipe

    • Jack Galmitz | April 7, 2021 at 4:42 PM | Reply

      You’ve got some talent for logic. Why would a well-seasoned Police Officer pose calmly in front of a video camera if he thought for a moment that he was doing anything illegal? He didn’t because he wasn’t and had no intention of seriously injuring Floyd.

    • @TheDiamond2009 Nope. Murder, plain and simple.

    • @Jack Galmitz Why would the bank robber try to rob a bank if he knew he would get caught? Come on! Obviously innocent. Are you familiar with the expression “the proof is in the pudding”? Chauvin choked Floyd with his knee. It was filmed from several angles. It is probably the best documented murder in history. All the bystanders saw it and they did all they could to warn Chauvin, but he just wouldn’t listen, so he killed the guy. It is all on tape. Perhaps Chauvin had something to prove, who knows. Yet, here you are, claiming Chauvin must be innocent because he looked casual during the act of killing…. If Chauvin had shot Floyd in the back and slit his throat you would still defend him wouldn’t you. I guess Chauvin is just innocent by default in your book… You think you would have said the same if Chauvin had been black and Floyd white? Nah…

    • Sojourner Girls | April 7, 2021 at 6:00 PM | Reply

      @Jack Galmitz why wouldn’t he get off then, after Floyd stopped struggling? Why did the paramedics have to pull him off? Why did he do it on video? Because he thought he would get away with murder. Pure and simple.

  9. Make Racists Afraid Again | April 7, 2021 at 2:01 PM | Reply

    Just like we saw on the video.
    The bystanders were only concerned for the life of the suspect. Pleading for attention to his safety.

  10. Richard Thomas | April 7, 2021 at 2:22 PM | Reply

    Murder .

  11. So the “hostile” crowd screaming at you to take your knee off George’s neck, because they believed you were killing him is what actually distracted you from taking your knee off of George’s neck and eventually killing him!?
    Seriously!?

    • @Michael Morningstar do you also support the assaults in asian and white people on streets?

    • Michael Morningstar | April 8, 2021 at 2:36 PM | Reply

      @Doge Moon Wow. You are desperate to work your way out of getting owned.

    • @Michael Morningstar you be “listen to me I know right I’m expert. You desperate I’m owned you because I’m an expert”. OK. Somehow the medical experts in the trial didn’t agree with you. Seems like they owned you already.

      @Doge Moon Wow. You are desperate to work your way out of getting owned.

    • @Michael Morningstar you getting owned you pathetic pharmacist.

  12. George Floyd never resisted arrest he explain to them that he was claustrophobia and he even asked could he sit in the front seat of the police car

  13. Rose wright Wright | April 7, 2021 at 4:58 PM | Reply

    Chauvin action indicated that he was not threatened by the bystanders, or did he expect any threats from the bystanders.

    • Lynn Many Fires | April 7, 2021 at 8:13 PM | Reply

      And also that he had no concern about anything. I saw 2 things in the look on Chauvin face. Arrogance. And his look also had a bit of blankness to it…almost as if he were a machine.

  14. No, you don’t perceive bystanders as a threat, when you have an asian officer standing guard, with his hand on his weapon, casing the immediate area, waiting for someone to make a wrong move.

  15. TheFireNextTime | April 7, 2021 at 6:27 PM | Reply

    An indication that an officer is genuinely worried about a “hostile crowd”, the for CALL BACKUP!

  16. Lynn Many Fires | April 7, 2021 at 7:45 PM | Reply

    There’s a story going around that Chauvin and Floyd knew each other and had, at one time, worked at the same business together. That there had been some kind of falling out between them previously. I wonder if the Prosecutor has investigated that story. Because if it is true, that would change the charge to murder.

  17. So wait…the handcuffed man was a threat, the bystanders begging for the handcuffed man’s life were a threat….against 4 adult male cops with guns & tazers? 🙄

  18. Michael Baldwin | April 7, 2021 at 11:27 PM | Reply

    How threatened was Chauvin he had his hand in his pocket 🤬

  19. Norman Mattson | April 8, 2021 at 3:55 PM | Reply

    Along with Chauvin there were 3 other cops. Ludicrous that he felt threatened by that small group of people.
