    And the older generation wonders why the younger generation doesn’t respect the Police.

      @Balde Solis yes your correct but like trump reagan made it clear he was a racist not in an obvious way. But. gave a clear message they were a problem. Then proceded too infiltrate a new drug to the black community called crack…

      @tin pan alley 1619 Broadway factually you r right on point, yet in comparison, Reagan was more likeable n had half a brain, orange is a fascist magot of a man!

      Are you serious? I’m a millennial and I would never say such a thing about the older generation cause I know my American history. I know the boomers and the silent generation were hosed down by police, lynched publicly by mobs and police looked onwards, police unleashed their dogs to maul black citizens and so forth. I know about the Detroit riots and Algiers Motel incidents of 1967 any millennial or gen z should know that the older generation suffered greatly at the hands of abuse, racial oppression, extreme forms of misogyny, and homophobia. If anything we’re getting a taste of what the older generation went through.

      @tin pan alley 1619 Broadway putting words in people’s minds are you? Don’t use me for your platform…stand on your own too cowardly two feet?

    • @Risingofthephoenixx x very well expressed n yet there’s so much more to say the least. Thank you

    literally murder

  3. Laura Zaboraski | May 26, 2020 at 3:36 PM | Reply

    The word to describe what happened is MURDER.

  4. Nicholas Carson | May 26, 2020 at 3:37 PM | Reply

    There are multiple cops why didnt they restrain him properly

  5. Disgusting. The officer was warned multiple times. This is murder.

    • @Trvp visuals I don’t think you can prove that the cop intended for him to die. Homicide requires proof of premeditation. Overcharging folks leads to an aquittal. Manslaughter, and depraved indifference are charges that will stick.

      Mark Jones yeah. It takes too much common sense to understand basic human anatomy. “How am i supposed to know how much force i need to snap a human neck, or cutoff air supply. That’s way too much for intent. I wasn’t sure if all 200 lbs of my body was on it either, it was only 9 mins”. Continue please

      Obviously, the black life is considered that of a slave to those who think themselves better a race to blacks…. This is unacceptable. Clearly, this sparks an outrage against RACISM in every sector of life in America!

    • @Trvp visuals Well you are welcome to charge them with whatever you like, and have a district attorney argue whatever you want, but I have a passing familiarity with the court system, and the defense gets to present a case too. Reasonable doubt is a thang.

    • @Apostle Stephen Dansu This doesn’t have anything to do with race that I can see. This is about police brutality. I know something about that. You don’t have to be black to know about that.

  6. Being Black in America shouldn’t be a death sentence and wearing a blue thug uniform shouldn’t make you immune from justice – COPS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR MURDEROUS ACTIONS!!!

    Cops get away w murder all the time… his union will back him, DA and city officials will smear and blame the victim and cover up their culpability… there will be a payoff to the family via taxpayers and the murders continue…

    • Agreed

      Those pigs were fired so the Union cant save them now

    • Roy Ormonde | May 26, 2020 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      Exactly, they got a whole team right now combing threw his Facebook, twitter, Youtube accounts trying to find anything to smear this poor man that was murdered. The lunacy will continue as long as these racist, power hunger, useless cops roam the streets looking for this.

    • This one is way worse and obviously worse than any other arrest used to prop up race division/racism. Y’all need to learn to see the difference between this and the majority of these videos. Good chance he’s going away for murder

    • Everblue Freediving | May 26, 2020 at 10:33 PM | Reply

      @DJ_Cub no worse than the Eric Garner murder… no indictments, cops walked.

  8. The man was murdered. He said he couldn’t breathe. After he stopped moving, the cop kept his knee on the man’s neck for several minutes. He later died at the hospital.
    My love to his family. 🙏

    Where is empathy from this police??? One day it could be someone he cares about. If he cares about anyone.

    • Keith Willis | May 26, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      Find his family and choke them out in front of his face. Let him watch all he loves die like dogs

    • Larry Snyder | May 26, 2020 at 6:56 PM | Reply

      He probably beats his wife and kids.
      That’s if any woman is desperate enough to be married and breed with a disgraceful piece of garbage like him.

    Might have been a serious crime like selling loose cigarettes, Oh wow.

  11. Murder at the hands of a sociopath and coward.

    It’s surprising how America still has a black population!! Just imagine how many innocent black people have been killed!!

      @Amazinj Muzik tell that to the 10 folks killed and 39 injured in Chicago this past weekend by their own!!

    • @Amazinj Muzik you are so racist

    • Amazinj Muzik | May 26, 2020 at 10:52 PM | Reply

      @John Barker payback is payback. And thats Not racist at all, because our own people will be caught in this well deserved payback too. Not just the oppressors. Yall need to understand what racism is. Idk how yall can be so confused on racism when your forefathers invented it.

    • @Amazinj Muzik You don’t make any sense because you are so full of hate and hate doesn’t make sense.

      Your ancestors sold their fellow Africans to the European colonizers. Are you going to get payback against them as well?

  13. If thats not murder, then free every one in prison.now.

    Forget “justice”, because that’s only a concept. It’s time for reciprocity.

  15. Now the cops have been fired they need to prosecuted and the one who did the actual killing should get the death penalty.

  16. How is he resisting arrest when handcuffed already on him this is murder

  17. Why the “F” didn’t someone knock the cop off him?

    • Shaochen Xu | May 26, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      Might get shot or get a knee on their neck too.

    • Michael Gibson | May 26, 2020 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      @salmonline Dude come on. You know they would shoot you dead . Maybe he doesn’t want to be 6 ft under. Maybe he has a wife and small kids.

    • @Michael Gibson Oh look… another one…sad…

    • 1Dispretty2me | May 26, 2020 at 10:02 PM | Reply

      Thats literally the most ignorant response i’ve heard. You just saw them murder a man for doing nothing. You don’t think they would open fire on anyone who came anywhere near them??? Much less tried to “knocked them off of him”

    • aysteria4ever | May 26, 2020 at 10:42 PM | Reply

      You want more black deaths? Why don’t you go charge at the officers the next time you see a black man almost choked to death.

    Why is on PAID leave??? He doesn’t deserve to be paid, he deserves an orange jumpsuit.

    This was murder. He just looked at that man while he slowly killed him. Smh

    “Being black in America shouldn’t be a death sentence,” SADLY that isexactly what has been happening 😢 😪😪

    • John Barker | May 26, 2020 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      @Lovenaturenaturally bu i will say again – you are racist

    • Ananias Cruz | May 26, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      Same thing with Latinos 😠😱😢😭

    • @johnnie olivier that’s because there are more white people in this country than black people. Whites killed by cops are usually armed, not unarmed. Whites usually magically get taken in peacefully… even if they just killed 20 people. Too many Black people who die by cops are unarmed and over something non violent. So try again fool.

    • @John Barker stop gaslighting devil
