    US police motto: to serve (white$ and the powerful) and protect (them from browns/blacks and the poor)

      Walker Bliek, those are not by population! The figures in the nature article are.

    • cryptocerebral | May 29, 2020 at 3:43 AM | Reply

      Walker Bliek, couple of examples on police biases against blacks/browns: stop-and-frisk; DOJ found pattern of unconstitutional racially biased policing including “use of excessive force and retaliation” against African Americans; and SHOOTING DEAD PEOPLE IS BRUTALITY!!!

    • @Walker Bliek protesting our protest is unacceptable

      Walker Bliek : I think it’s only the mentally ill, and the paid Trump Trolls, that LIVE on channels they HATE, ranting to people they HATE, about the other people they HATE, don’t you?

      @Walker Bliek why white people always wanna take away from the cause of black saying all lives next time a white man gets recorded getting beaten to death you make sure you take to the streets and protest i’m sure black will support it

    That man had his hands in his pockets while kneeling on his neck. ..That is murder… Throw the book at him. Better yet smack him over the head with it.

    • No one waited for a trial they went strait to burning their stores. Looks like the whole city is a mess not just the police or the counterfeiting criminals. Easy to blame others than to stop the blame and take some responsibility.

    • Marie Michaels | May 29, 2020 at 11:00 AM | Reply

      @Snow Hawk No one waits for a trial when they arrest people and have them sit in jail for months. I can’t explain to you what it feels like to be black and deal with police. I can’t help you understand the level of anger, frustration and sadness people feel from watching a man with a knee in his neck beg for relief. The same way you feel about protecting innocent businesses, I feel that same energy for people first.

    • ​@Marie MichaelsI could care less about this area I would never live in it. Burn the city down because a criminal was killed unjust? I am not saying the cop wasn’t wrong it’s clear he was wrong. But why burn your own city, you get no respect from me for that.

      @Jihadi Mi Slydi Floyd managed to do it. Probably pulled the same stunt when he was arrested in Texas.

    • David Connolly | May 29, 2020 at 7:07 PM | Reply

      @Steve Smith he wasn’t resisting. Purely a hate crime.

    This is unbearable. That video is sickening. How do people heal after that level of human betrayal?

    • I feel sorry for you America. It ain’t looking good over there.

      I cried over this last night, slept only two hours. Prayer did not help either.

      You make such a valid point

    • @tinamarisia123 you live in England.. you are a subject of the queen… you are helpless

    • Evelynne Kibalama | May 29, 2020 at 1:58 PM | Reply

      Well put Janet. Am down here in Africa and Derek Chauvin literally pulled my heart out of my chest and am yet to heal. Had a major breakdown and haven’t slept since. I wonder how people are coping with this monstrous video, it literally freezes your blood for a moment. RIP George, rest with the angels

    Police in the USA are a disgrace you can what so many videos how they treat people the are brutal

  7. Kirsten Anderberg | May 29, 2020 at 2:32 AM | Reply

    I understand the rage and anger. And yes, the four officers MUST be ARRESTED IMMEDIATELY OR NO PEACE, COAST TO COAST. I am crying and I am angry.

  8. US today is modern day Roman Empire collapse. Too strong to be defeated by outside forces, the implosion is caused by decaying morals and rotting internal structures. Americans are incapable of learning from their own experiences; at this stage of decay, self correcting is beyond reach.

      Perfectly articulated.

      Just watch black people walking down the street with their pants below the knees.

    • barbara Corcoran | May 29, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      Like every empire built on a cause and destroyed by the elite that forget the people who put them there

    • David Connolly | May 29, 2020 at 6:52 PM | Reply

      @michaelatw86 what’s that supposed to mean???

    • Angela Siegfried | May 29, 2020 at 8:38 PM | Reply

      @michaelatw86 What you fail to understand is we are all connected, meaning you are not disconnected from that “black man walking down the street with his pants below his knees” as you put it. In other words, you helped to put those pants there.

    Of course, white America always make it about something else.

    • How? Haven’t heard anyone say this was OK. It’s not always about race and a lot less often than you think.

    • @Foggy Farm Sometimes it is.

    • Mining Trout | May 29, 2020 at 4:36 PM | Reply

      angela jackson what? That cop is not “our people”. Bad white people do not represent all white people, in the same way that bad black people do not represent all black people, and so on. There is no justification for the cop to do what he did, but there is no justification to blame all white people for one man’s actions. This is textbook generalisation.

    • angela jackson | May 29, 2020 at 4:51 PM | Reply

      @Mining Trout Your society do it to us all the time. No to look at here.

    • @JSpirit sure, look at the number of thumbs up to this comment throwing shade at whites.

    Lynching has been outsourced to the Police, 21st century style.

  11. I don’t understand the discussion here! This is cold blooded murder. For every George Floyd, there are many incidents that aren’t filmed and not reported.

    • How many though? How many people die in police custody every year versus the number in police custody. I guess this is the number we should look at.

    • According to Wikipedia, 2 a year in the US. For what thats worth.

    • Angela Siegfried | May 29, 2020 at 8:42 PM | Reply

      @Foggy Farm Too many.

    • Angela Siegfried | May 29, 2020 at 8:44 PM | Reply

      @Foggy Farm One death is too many. There is no acceptable percentage of people who die in police custody because people are not expandable. Just like it is not acceptable for older people to die of covid-19.

      bella roja it’s just emerged that they knew each other, Floyd and the officer who killed him used to be bouncers at the same nightclub

    The power belongs to the people this is a reminder to the elites.

    That is clearly murder. If it wasnt for the uniform those men would be arrested for a gang murder. Such a discrase that they are getting away with it.

  14. Jo Pellegrino | May 29, 2020 at 3:39 AM | Reply

    It was murder on tape. Every officer watching must also be prosecuted.

    This is America 2020 😲 everyone take care 🙏

    • You also. We are in deep trouble and this could just blow up in one of these towns. We are a powder-keg and police keep throwing lit matches at it. They thrive on disasters. It is time to act. Prayers are a good way to settle your mind before you go out the door. Always best to be right with God when you are in a state of mind is leaning towards anger.

      Mr. Floyd Georges family deserve to know that the country sees what was done to their family member. We, The People, have seen. There’s nothing that can unsee what those criminals with badges did to that man.

  16. The police training manual needs another entry. Warning depriving a human of oxygen causes DEATH.

  17. Mohamad Egypt | May 29, 2020 at 4:50 AM | Reply

    This was a murder!

    “You cannot defend yourself if you’ve violated your training. And you cannot defend yourself if the person you’ve arrested is under your control.”

    • Yet… The police in the USA have to be wiped clean. Enough of the ‘one bad cop’ propaganda these department fall back on. Those 3 had done this to others. That was obvious to anyone that watched the tape. They did not speak, and they acted as one unit. The one that stood guard is just as guilty. And has a lengthy history of beating citizens for no reason.

      Felony Failure to kiss the pigs a$$ is over with. Time to start taking some of ours back. Policing for profit… is over. Time for the new USA and a new police force to assist us in making it a better place to live.

      We have a wonderful country… time to take it back from the criminals in badges.
