    The remaining 3 Cops should be charge as well since they were assisting this killing.

      Dusty Rains More charges coming. The authorities are making certain charges will stick, and are still gathering evidence. A lot more to this story than what we see on video. The investigation will reveal motive. These two worked with one another as security guards at the same club, overlapping shifts. More charges will come, for all four of them.

      eric 100 By the way members of my family are cops or retired cops. They are angry and see this as murder and the other officers as co-murderers.

      Dusty Rains Exactly. Their boss did not need to see anything except for the video to know his cops had NOT done their job.

    • RonRenaissance Man | May 30, 2020 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      Nyjae Johnson Exactly. What was he going to do? Shoot another cop for interfering?

    • Dusty Rains The girl who was standing there recording should be arrested too? Because that’s basically what you just said.

  2. “Bad cops are not good for good cops” I have two close friends that are state cops and they would of never done anything like this. That statement is so true. Bad cops need to get locked up.

    • @notfalling forbullshit Truth

    • As a former Police Officer ( Sydney Australia ) there’s no such thing as a bad cop. They are criminals with badges.

      notfalling forbullshit They do! I have personal experience. Good cops outnumber bad ones. But, bad ones are out there. Law enforcement officer is one of the top professions most likely to be in prison for murder. Ego gets to some people and they believe they can murder and get away with it. Many, many examples of cops who have gone down that path, the infamous Golden State serial killer was a cop.

    We want the other officers charged as accessories to first degree murder. The officer worked with floyd for YEARS. HE KNEW HIM.

  4. He is going to get it when he goes in.

    To the fullest extent of the law

    The system is really insincere is addressing racism in this nation.

    • @Jan Hall News Flash!! President’s are selected, not elected.

    • 安震 People like you are good at mixing up facts to justify your CCP regime suppression 😜 There is a major difference here. The USA government is rightfully elected by the majority of its citizens so all Americans citizens, whether Asian, Caucasian , Hispanic, African Americans have an equal right to elect their government . And Trump is elected by the majority of Americans . But in Hk, do they even have the right to elect their own chief executive leader ? When there is a riot with violence in a country , the leader had every right to suppress it and countries around the world wouldn’t see it as a suppression because every citizen had spoken their part and had the fundamental right to vote against their leader if they don’t like him . So subsequent riots that happen, the General world will view it as a riot from the minority . In China or Hk, this is different because none of the citizens had their fundamental right to elect their leader yet and the government started sending troops to suppress them . For this , countries around the world would naturally view as suppression 😜 If you want to justify your actions of suppression Hk protestor as legitimate and justified , then simple( just give them a chance to vote for their leader . If you can’t even do that or afraid to do that because Xi Jin Ping is afraid to lose his power , then please do not come in as a 50 cents army to come distort facts 😂😜

    • 安震 bootlickers are rampant in the US.

    4 cops held him down — all 4 cops should get arrested — not 1

    • 3 police on George Floyd https://youtu.be/RckbjxRKh-0

    • @DPH Yeah I know about his facts..But like you said as well..He didn’t even deserve anything close to what happened to him..

    • 9 convictions from 1997 to 2007? Gentle giant? Defiant crook? Either way no excuse for people to exploit a person’s death so they can let their evil within out on anyone or anything.

    • @ka c I have 21 previous criminal convictions fool I was no angel as a teenager all gang related charges went to prison for 6 year got out and changed my lifestyle my mom moved me and my three siblings to the UK to keep me and my little brother away from those killer California streets arent ex felons allowed to rehabilitate themselves I have a heart of gold would do anything for someone in need are you implying I’m a bad person because I’ve spent years in prison. GTFOH fool

    How come the so-called “good cops” are never around when unarmed black people are being murdered…

    • Diana Hanna | May 30, 2020 at 8:37 PM | Reply

      Exactly 🎯

    • Jack Mehoff | May 30, 2020 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      Because good cops don’t murder people…

    • birdlynn hubbard | May 30, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

      Good question, and why don’t we ever hear from them after the crime?

    • Allen Elijah | May 30, 2020 at 9:49 PM | Reply

      It’s because it doesn’t cause hatred, so the media doesn’t report on it. Are you really that stupid? Do you think news sites like CNN are going to report the “peaceful” arrests? Of course not. They will only report the arrests that cause a stir, because they like to create chaos and watch the nation fall apart, like anti-Americans.

    • The so-called good cops you said are usually the cowards that dont dare say anything,complain anything,do anything that will deem that as traitors to their own and jeopardise their career. There aren’t good cops its like 1/10, the other 9 are just collecting their paycheck. There is no noble policeman ever. Police have lost the trust of the people.

  10. Brian Roiger | May 30, 2020 at 1:36 PM | Reply

    Wait until they announce the autopsy results and it says George Floyd died of medical complications or drug related. Which would lead to the cop winning the trial. Then we are talking real riots.

    • @Thomas Watkins If you have, then you know blocking a major vein or artery does not constrict a lung’s capacity to breathe. It’s obvious you just want to win an argument. SMH 🤣😂😆

    • @wraithchild G Umm…..yes…..yes we did. Thats the whole reason m9thafuckas is mad. Wild, just stay in ur lane lil homie

    • @Thomas Watkins SMH 🤣😂😆.

    • @Inday Langging what’s sad is we have to search for truth because it surely isn’t told by mainstream media. 🤬

    • Thomas Watkins are you stupid or what?When he says he can’t breathe we all understand (except for you) that he’s having a hard time to breath because the « police officer » is crushing his neck with his knee…

    3 other cops complicit in murder.

  12. Bertram Davis | May 30, 2020 at 1:44 PM | Reply

    Just please remember that this whole thing is due to compounded issues that have been going on for decades.

  13. McQueenPress | May 30, 2020 at 1:56 PM | Reply

    One down, three to go. The ones that assisted likely consider themselves “good” cops because their knee wasn’t on George’s neck, but they are all accessories to murder.

    • Dwight Corbett | May 30, 2020 at 4:02 PM | Reply

      And the fact that they appear to have done nothing to get Chauvin’s knee off George Floyd’s neck. I’m sure that three cops could have overpowered one.

  14. SuperDuperKid | May 30, 2020 at 1:59 PM | Reply

    Those 3 cops that watched him need to be in jail as well.

  15. We sick and tired of being sick and tired😭

  16. It’s because we are also protesting against the broken system and not just “charged” but a conviction of this criminal act!

    • Joseph Ragosta | May 30, 2020 at 9:39 PM | Reply

      Also it’s only 3rd degree which is like accidentally killing someone which is not what happened here he did this on purpose either out of racism or for some other reason possibly because they worked together in the past for a few years

  17. Rabbit Potato | May 30, 2020 at 5:25 PM | Reply

    This was second degree murder
    Edit: it was done with OBVIOUS intent.
    Keep protesting 🙏🏻

    • And if the claim that floyd and the officer worked together once somewhere is true, it might even be 1st.
