    Stop shooting people. Start helping people. In defence of the police who are not working under the delusion of thuggish unaccountability, they have been asked to do many different types of interventions they are not trained for. If you only have a hammer, then every problem seems to look like a nail.

      florette552 There have been egregious examples of racism in policing. I am not sure racism was a part of this incident. I accept it may very well have been but I personally do not know enough about the incident and the people involved to say that it was racially-fueled.
      The broader problem of race and policing in America is beyond doubt though.

      What about talking to him? They did! They made first contact at 10:42pm and talked to him until 11:23pm, that is 41 minutes! They were respectful, polite, courteous, and professional. Once all the sobriety testing was complete, and after the breathalyzer showed him to be over the legal limit, he was then basically told he was under arrest for suspicion of DUI and was to put his hands behind his back. He then resisted, fought with the two cops, wrestled them trying to grab their weapons, threw one head first into the pavement, wrestled one cop’s taser away, started fleeing, and as the cop’s were chasing on foot he turned and fired the taser at the cop’s face (who was five feet away) at which point he got shot.
      The whole thing is available to see on youtube, for free, in it’s entirety.

      Watch that and tell me they just woke him up and arrested him for nothing!

      @Joe he did not have a lethal weapon

  4. How can the police shoot some one in a crowded parking lot? How irresponsible….

    • @rjtheripper931 George Floyd was cuffed and look what happened to him. Was he going to have the same fate, NO, he wasn’t giving the police a chance, so he fought for his life, and yes he ran out of FEAR, wht can’t you understand this, why are you so stupid? Then for the police to SHOOT him TWICE in the back, tell me, what threat did he pose ???????????????????????
      Such ignorance confounds me.

    • Sky Gerspacher | June 16, 2020 at 2:20 PM | Reply

      and where did the third bullet go.

    • Sky Gerspacher good question, that’s my point xD you can find in a very weird why a little tiny reason why they shoot mr brook.
      But what is with the people who was there and what happens if they got hit … sooooooo irresponsible …

    • @rjtheripper931 STOP IT.

    • @GOOGLE TAQIYYA Bu Luck, not judgement. The Cops were Wrong, he did Not pose a threat, he is made responsible for their ANGER by people like you who FAIL to understand FEAR.

  5. @MSNBC Can you guys talk about Malcolm Harsch, Robert Fuller, Dominique Alexander. This were three Black man were found hanging in 3 different public spaces within short time period. disregarded as suicide. But there’s more to their stories thats not been told. And no person that kills themselves do it in the way this men deaths are been described. Sad to say but this looks like lynching.

      Because it is the beginning, the tip of the iceberg, the first little bit of uncovering the old southern guard that has been allowed to exist behind closed doors, in political arena’s, in police stations, in small towns and big cities all over this country. Bit by bit we will begin to see their faces and some of them will surprise us, it might be our neighbor, it might be our local mayor. Secretly unable to accept the principals that this country aspires to. Secretly treasonous while pretending to play at the American game of democracy. Stealing away in the shadows of our fine democracy to wipe out our own citizens based on superficial feelings about race. We will see their faces and know what has been going on behind the scenes and this is the beginning of the uncovering of it.

    • Wow, how awful. I’ve never heard of them, how long ago?.

    • Js Somewhere | June 16, 2020 at 10:17 PM | Reply

      I remember hearing the reports on it. Just thinking about the acts makes me feel sick.
      So this is only my opinion nothing to back this. It is my opinion that the lynchings you are talking about are not being spoken about now is because they cannot say they were done by cops. What I mean by that is the protests are focused on police brutality, and racism. The acts you speak of are ugly and brutal but cannot be connected to any police.
      It should be about racism in general, but at this point it is not. This round is about cops, I guess it’s to large a problem to take on completely. I do think it’s a good thing to divide and conquer. It helps keep people on target. Living in a fast food world it’s very easy to have the majority of your support give you a “hey shinny” then wander away. You are correct there should be justice for those you speak of, good call.

    The shooting was the consequence not the direct cause of the problem.

    • You need help.

    • Js Somewhere | June 16, 2020 at 10:32 PM | Reply

      What?
      The shooting was a retaliation, by the officer on the man they were trying to detain. The cops were not expecting him to struggle when they tried to cuff him. Then not only did he get free but he also took one of their stun guns. The cop that shot the victim was angry I’m guessing, he allowed his emotional state to dictate his actions. It was that or in Atlanta they train their officers to just shoot folks that break away don’t give chase, or wait 24 hrs then go arrest him at his house or his place of employment. Which do you think is a more plausible. Add to that the personality type that the job of being a cop draws.

    Fascinated by how many people fight hard against facts to sustain their narratives. He was passed out drunk in the drive-thru. He battled police while under arrest, wrestled a weapon away from an officer and while fleeing fired the weapon at an officer. Yep, another case of being arrested for sleeping while black.

    • Sad how the only part of the video you find factual is that the black man fired a taser while running away from the cops, the fact the car was not driving or the fact that he admit to be drunk and tell the cops he want to walk home because he doesn’t want any problems did not make ur facts list and this was b4…. just say you are on the cops side regardless of what u see…

    • He was just over the alcohol limit. He was sleeping in his car, not driving his car when police were called or when they arrived. If there purpose is to protect and serve the public, they could have told him to call someone to drive him home, the police could have driven him home, or allowed him to walk home as he suggested. Far too often, the police r more focused on handing out tickets to increase the police depts revenue above and beyond what we all pay through taxes to fund police depts. I don’t know anything about the area in GA where this took place but where I live, the city doesn’t pull ppl over and issue tickets for things like having a headlight or brake light out, they don’t sit in places where the speed decreases which goes downhill to catch drivers “speeding”. This has nothing to do w/making the communities safer but rather looking for any reason at all to pull ppl over. These aren’t race driven, but money driven. However, they can issue more of these tickets in communities of less wealth. When I was younger and lived in the suburbs, I was pulled over often after curfew. They targeted me bc I was a young white kid and sometimes I had friends in my car. I received 20 curfew tickets from 16-18yrs. They were always disappointed bc they found alcohol on my friends or myself nor had we been drinking. At least twice I had my car searched. They never told me what they were looking for but bc I was young I’d imagine it was drugs or alcohol. I rarely drank and never did drugs so they never found anything in my car. This was never about safety. One time my friends and I were stopped entering a park after school, the other time we were on the side of the highway w/a flat tire. They issued no tickets bc my friends and I had done nothing wrong. One time my friend stuck her head out of the sunroof at a red stop light to tell our friends in the car behind us which restaurant we were going to. My car was at a complete stop when this happened. I got pulled over and got a ticket for for driving illegally again in the suburbs. There was nothing unsafe about as long as we were at a red stop light. It was a bs ticket to increase revenue. The police would have a much better relationship w/the community if they were focused on protecting and serving the community instead of focused in raising revenue for the dept. As for the man in GA, if they shot him during the physical fight, they could be seen as shooting in one’s defense. However, whether ur a civilian or police officer, shooting someone in the back while they r running away is not self defense, nor was he threatening anyone’s else. He briefly turned aNd looked like he may have fired the taser in self defense bc the officer was chasing him. However, u can see in the video that he didn’t that he missed or was too far away. A taser is a non-lethal weapon. Even if had tasered the officer, the black man was running away, not toward the officer. The officer responded with a lethal weapon. 2 bullets in the black man’s back and one bullet in a Wendy’s customer car with children in the car. They had the guys driver’s license, his address, and his car. They could have arrested him the next day w/more officers and after the alcohol wore off. There was no need to need for deadly force when the man was running away. I’m not sure if they could legally issue him a DUI/DWI when he was parked but they could have issued a ticket and had him call someone to drive him home. They didn’t have to arrest him. Many black ppl fight and/or run even when they’ve done nothing wrong out of fear. U need to review the facts. The coroner classified the death as homicide, the officer was fired, and the Mayor said it was not a justified use of deadly force. U need to examine ur own narrative and figure out why ur narrative isn’t consistent w/the coroner, the police dept who fired the officer, and mayor. The prosecutor may charge the office and its highly likely the family will win a wrongful death civil suit against the city. It’s interesting how those w/the most facts don’t agree w/ur narrative. Perhaps u need a psychological examination to help u figure out what’s wrong w/ur brain.

      And based on what I’ve read, he had a long criminal record that included felony cruelty to children.

      @florette552 As Ben Shapiro says, when someone calls you a racist with no evidence, the correct reply is not, “No I’m not”, but “You’re an a$$h0le”.

    • Melaine White | June 16, 2020 at 6:00 PM | Reply

      @Jane Doe “They could have arrested him the next day”
      And Brooks could have not battled the police. I find your proposal that police should schedule arrests at the criminal’s convenience seemingly untenable. But let’s try it where you live and see what happens.

  9. I think only way to truly understand the situation is to struggling for your life with a man that took away your Taser and pointed (possibly firing) at you. Not condoning anything, but it’s too easy to pass judgement on those that risk their lives everyday to protect us. Also, something must be said as to what Brooks should have expected. Resisting arrest, taking a cop’s taser, running and pointing it back at him. At the end of the day, we all need to take responsibility for our own actions as cause and effect. Being that there were two officers on scene, firing their weapon in lethal force seems to be obsessive and should be investigated thoroughly.

    • Carriemchardy Carrie | June 16, 2020 at 5:41 AM | Reply

      I thought the legal system is meant to mean that they arrest him (whenever, however and where ever safely) and charge him with his crimes, not shoot him in the back whilst fleeing. Its not like they had his car or details …. oh they did. Its not like Police know they need to uphold the law… oh they do.

    • Sky Gerspacher | June 16, 2020 at 2:20 PM | Reply

      if he had hit one of the officers with that taser, would he have been sentenced to death.

    • They didn’t protect all the Black lives they shot, did they.

  11. So the cops had his CAR and his ID.. And thought it necessary to chase and shoot him?…. Why did they even bother chasing him lol?..

    • David Goldman | June 16, 2020 at 9:25 AM | Reply

      there job and he assaulted them and stole there stun gun! also shot it at officers face

    • @David their* 1: no he didn’t shoot it at a cops face. he was running with his back to them, aiming at his face would be next to impossible to do on purpose.

      2. Its the officers responsibility to secure his equipment.

      3. If the officers believed their life was in danger because of a stun gun, then the suspect has the right to the same belief.

      4. Assault and resisting isnt justification for using lethal force, shooting him in the back.

    • @David Goldman The cops started it by hanfcuffing him to bring FEAR, and it sure Did. In the light of George Floyd only a week ago? You FAIL to understand FEAR.

    • Js Somewhere | June 16, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      They were embarrassed and therefore angry. He bested two cops hand to hand and was able to relieve one of them of their stun gun. That man was shot to save face. The officers could have done many different things to not escalate the situation they started out being reasonable. Why did they feel the need to turn it into an ugly situation? So really what was going on with the cops? When they talk about training, and screening, this event is the perfect example. Had these officers possessed the right temperament, and been better trained the results would have been completely different.

  12. Any updates on what happened to this protester?

      @florette552 ” George Floyd complied, was cuffed. You won’t die????”
      I really think you are on to something here:
      *THE MEDIA KILLED RAYSHARD BROOKS!*
      Floyd battled the police directly leading to his death (well that and a bum heart and hard drug abuse), a fact which the media and others have worked very hard to suppress. So poor Mr. Brooks was, according to your theory, misled by the media and others into falsely believing that _battling_ the police keeps you from being harmed since he _falsely_ was under the impression that Floyd was docilely compliant and this docile compliance magically triggered the police (all evil according to the narrative of the media and others) into murder. Whew.

      Q: Well then, how many other black men are going to be needlessly killed because of the actions of the media and others?
      A: Too many! Just one is too many. #defundthemedia

      RIP Rayshard Brooks and could it be that George Floyd was such a victim of the media and others too? How many wonderful black men have been killed by media lies?

    • @Melaine White – They are bunch of brainless sheep’s who can’t think on their own. Follow the media’s narrative.

    • @florette552 – you stated you watched the link. Now tell me, are they the same person 👉🏻 https://youtu.be/BxXR9rYyI9I
