  1. The police will have to start obeying the law and refrain from murdering people,
    or suffer the same consequences as the rest of us would.

    1. Idk, I think they are supposed to arrest people when they have a warrant. Are you saying police officers should not do their job because a black man might act a fool?

    2. @MS MadTea There is something called excessive force. The police have wide ranging powers but they are still bound by the rule of proportionality. When you are assaulting, shooting and killing people when the crime in question is something that may not even warrant a night in jail and at worst would be a small fine, that’s when you know you have an institutional problem.

      It really is insane how much force the police seem to bring to bear against minor infractions when black people are involved.

  2. Even if car exhaust were the culprit, it still is the officer’s responsibility for holding him near the exhaust when he wasn’t even resisting.

    1. and the car is a hybrid, I have not heard testimony of an expert saying how much CO2 is in the exhaust of that vehicle.

  3. If his lawyers actually believe that Chauvin was justified then they should be fired if they are advocates of justice. That’s very scary when medical experts can be overruled by a lawyers biased opinion. Whitewashed America is disgusting.

    1. They should test their theory. I’m sure they’re all sober. If it’s the drugs that killed Floyd, have their client kneel on their necks for over 9 mins.

    2. @howdareyou41 i had someone kneel on mine to see what it was like. it was uncomfortable but i pulled up fine. the person was bigger than chauvin and i am not has big as floyd. mind you, it was not a proper test as i was not filling to pump myself full of fentanyl and meth.

    3. @blake jones You are FOS….The MMA fighter already testified that the pig put his knee on George in a “Blood Choke” of the neck and when he said as much the pig looked at him in a knowing way…FOH

  4. Even if he was arrested Floyd clearly showed he is capable to cooperate. If I was on a jury I would see that as something in favour of Floyd rather than something you can use against him.

    1. @Audilife what else is there? There’s no point insinuating there was something damning in the video without telling us what was missing.

    2. @Audilife Let me guess? Q has more evidence that is just being hidden from us and we need to wake up?

    3. *EXACTLY* I think that video shows NOT that the cops there were respecfult, BUT it shows Floyd’s capability of co-operation, so that could backfire on the defence. That’s the way I would certainly read it if I was a juror.

  5. If the cop’s knee was not on Floyd’s neck, this court case would not be happening.
    The cop killed Floyd.

    1. Actually, if the store clerk didnt call the police because George was trying to break the law, AGAIN, he might still be alive today. If GF sat in the police car like a normal person he might be alive today. If GF didnt try to swallow his stash of Fetanyl and Meth so the cops wouldnt find it, he might be alive today. IF GF wasnt s chronic drug user, he may have been able to exert energy while acting like and animal and not die due to heart failure, hi might be a live today. CHauvin did not have his full weight on Floyd. That has been proven. Good job defense. NOW hopefully the jury isnt so scared of civil unrest and for their personal safety that they do the right thing.

    2. @MS MadTea Total B.S. , you have totally disregarded the facts. So sad that the U.S. has allowed guns to be so prevalent that they fear anytime that they approach a vehicle on such trivial matters. You want your guns , you face the consequences of how people will behave, or more accurately, will perceive how they
      will behave . Regardless, there were much better ways to avoid this by the police.

  6. They can use George Floyd past but Chauvin 20 complaints including his knee on a Black teenager. Or the encounter with Floyd at the nightclub they both worked BS. So sick of them. IF CHAUVIN IS NOT FOUND GUILTY, HEXED HEXED

  7. They’re always shouting relax stop resisting when you’re not, establishing their alibis right on video before shooting or maiming us. But, they always arrest the white supremacists mass shooters without incident always.

    1. The Only Way We Stop These Multiple Senseless Killings Of Black And Brown Citizens Is With Total Accountability Without Question. Plus Immediate And Serious Police Reform And Training Nationwide. OFFICER NAZARIO IS PROOF OF THAT FACT!!!

  8. It’s a lot of animals trolling in these comment section right here so please do not answer back to them there are just animals thanks! Have a great day! My bless black and white brother and sister’s!!!

    1. @Loretta Roublick i understand u care about animals more than humans please don’t insulted us thank u!!!

    2. @Raymond Sims Appreciate your feedback and thanks for proving my point. Have a blessed evening. Take care of self and each other.

  9. I don’t care what kind of person Mr. Floyd was but I know he didn’t deserve to die like that. To this day I haven’t watched a full video because it’s so hard to watch.

  10. Even if he had drugs in his system, doesn’t mean he had to die from it. People who are in the overdosing process, wil start looking weak. GF wasn’t weak before the police got there, as a matter of fact he looked bright happy in the store and full of life.

  11. He apologized, he did not resist. He was saying ok even on this video. He may had persona issues to deal to him self, but he was polite showed respect for those officers who told him to put his Hand in his back. I did not see both times pushing, disrespecting or insulting officers.

  12. Their little video of Georges other arrest has nothing to do with the officer murdering him with his fat knee.
