    This innocent man was murdered, the whole system needs to be overhauled. A sad thing though, is the thugs that have gone on a spree of arson and looting, calling it a protest, are really bad for the cause. Why burn down some other innocent persons business and ruin their livelihood. Floyd’s family must be horrified with this supposedly being done in his name.

  2. Judges will always acquit a cops for kill someone if they’re black, this always happens.

    31 people killed by cops in Canada in 100 years. In the US, that’s Tuesday.

    Mr. Lemon breaking out the sunken place on live tv. Appreciate you Don and Chris.

  5. That officer needs to be charged for murder.

  6. Call it what it is. Murder. A lynching. Floyd was murdered. Floyd was lynched.

      Relax. A career forger took it’s final ‘asphalt temperature challenge’
      and lost. Many more out there to replace it. You knew him?

    ” I’ll be out here till I hear he’s been arrested, and that’s what I expect from everybody else ”

      @ibobpeb plaub no what I mean is that this one is going to gi by the book, the Rule of Law, and that this is a disgrace beyond words.

    • You will be the first to complain about the lack of opportunity after the community gets burned down , amd of course you jump over the entire Democrat leadership of Minnesota

      @ibobpeb plaub yeah, the two are so very comparable.

      @Never Again go by the book, the rule of law LOL…You said you been out there to protest, do you think you guys go by the book and the law?

    • Never Again | May 28, 2020 at 7:14 PM | Reply

      @ibobpeb plaub the looting is not what this is about.

  10. So the penalty for “resisting” is instant murder?

      I am a huge trump supporter and a white guy and I’ll tell u you are 100% right cold blooded murder he should be charged with first degree murder and I think he will be trump has already signaled hes going after him the 3 other cops should be charged with something because there cops there paid to protect life and they sat by as one of there colleagues murdered a man

    • @Relic Arcane Because it happens at a disproportional rate.

    • @Relic Arcane A third virus its called whataboutism. its prevalent in the republican party and very common in white supremecist.

    • @Alton Rowe jail the police officers! Who is the mayor, congresswoman and governor of minneapolis? They should put those police in jail!

  12. I’m a black woman professional college graduate advanced degree and I still know it could have been me or my family. I think of that often. Never feel completely safe.

    Still we call American “the land of the free and home of the brave “…very unfortunate indeed.

    • @Gaurav Vibhas Shinde
      I understand what you’re saying; however, no other country, countries you’ve named, labels itself “land of the free home of the brave” (beginning in 1814) and with such conviction. If they did then we can compare by saying this and that but no one else does.

    • more like the land of slaves and cowards

    • @Gaurav Vibhas Shinde I’m afraid you are incorrect. There are many countries in Europe and few in Asia with much more civilized and educated nation than in usa.

    • @Gaurav Vibhas Shinde just Google police killings per capita, then edit your statement to show the truth. It is untrue to say the situation is far worse in Europe.

  14. You remember how the FBI quickly infiltrate ‘THE BLACK PANTHERS’ because they are scared while they keep running their KKK underground.

  15. Thank you. My granddaughter cried yesterday not knowing what to do with her anger. Thank you for having this conversation.

    • Why couldn’t you shield your granddaughter from the harshness of life. Anger you allowed to develop while exposing the madness. What kid wouldn’t go nuts.

    • mewde you can’t shield them from it when it’s all over social media and everyone is talking about it.

      I’m 15, and it was very hard to NOT see the news, I watched this video and it made me nauseous.

      I want that police officer hung, drawn and quartered.

  16. Don lemon looks like he’s been crying.

  17. Well said you spoke the feeling’s of us all.

    We have seen the rest of the video and it’s clear Derek Chauvin murdered that man as bystanders begged him to stop. He needs to go to jail for murder.

  19. Kudos and respect gentlemen. Well said Mr. Lemon!
