  1. Now we know that we see that there was no struggle or resistance from for him and that was all a lie

    • Didnt you get the memo? Black people are Super Human. Cop probably thought he was going to flip up In the air brake the cuffs in one go like in the movies. In all seriousness from watching that video it looked like he did it on purpose.

    It’s hard to watch at the end he isn’t even responding and the cop is still holding him down by the neck

      They are just wicked people I tell you…he was on the guy with his hand in the pocket ..I’m sure this man is a racist and thinks every black guy is a gangster.. I can even say this police officer is someone who is afraid of black guys and was looking for a way to proov his dominance..He is a foolish psychopath who has do be put in jail for his whole life and his family will have to follow him including that Chinese officer with his head like my testicles. 😡

      @the Man once called Wyatt Nelsen If republicans are in power how are the democrats locking the country down? The guidelines are from the Trump administration and are designed to save lives. Just because Trump attacks it dosnt mean its democratic, that fool is telling to people to liberate themselves from the rules he and his administration decided on.

    • I wish pac was still alive, he was one of a kind.

    According to the paramedics, Mr. Floyd was dead when they put him in the ambulance; however, in most states, a doctor has to determine that nothing further can be done to save a life and to declare a person dead. Cop #1 should be charged with 1st degree murder based on the video. His partner cop # 2 should be charged with 2nd degree murder minimum, because his intentional lack of action as an officer of the law lead to Mr. Floyd’s death. He was too “busy ” trying to block onlooker videos when he should have pulled his partner away from Mr.Floyd. According to the report filed, all 4 cops lied about what happened in their report even though they were supposedly wearing cameras. So the other 2 cops could be charged with covering up the murder (conspiracy) and fraud.

    The mayor immediately fired them because he felt there was enough evidence without further investigation and opening the door for immediate charges to be filed.

    • The other 2 cops were sitting on him although you cant see in this video angle.

      Oh, ok thenthat being the case, they could also be charged with 2nd degree murder.

      Wanda Godsey , and guess what the citizens of Minneapolis will have to pay For the lawsuit of a cop that killed someone! Yes we continue to pay for what these cops do! We’re talking probably 1billion + Dollar lawsuit here! Guess what my friends in Minneapolis your taxes have just risen! They’re going to attach it do your house taxes, your city taxes ,your state taxes! Because one man decided he was above the law just like trump*!Above the law!Yes guess what we are always the one who pay for the mistakes of others! I think these officers should all be sued personally! And not the city of Minneapolis! The city of Minneapolis is not the one who murdered this man so therefore they should not have to pay higher taxes for one man’s decision

      I agree with what you say; however, the city should have liability insurance to cover lawsuits and the officers themselves can be sued personally as well. Cities and states need to do better at screening police candidates; maybe something like the Government process of screening submarine candidates before they hit the streets.

    He was dead at the site that cop killed him

  10. He resisted arrest huh???? But you had him in handcuffs!!!! Even if he did resist, WTF could he do with NO HANDS AND NO WEAPON!!!!!!

    • Quincy Niles | May 27, 2020 at 2:38 PM | Reply

      Oh my god that’s so true he can’t do anything in handcuffs even if he was resistant what’s he gonna do give the evil eye

    • Quincy Niles | May 27, 2020 at 2:41 PM | Reply

      @Robbie S so very true even if he was under fraud suspicions they could of handcuffed him and with the help of his other officers put him in the patrol car

      White cops killing a black person. Looks bad? It is bad. Why do they do this? There’s no explanation, no defense. Other than these cops use their uniforms and badges as their license to murder people, only because they’re black or brown. They know they’ve been able to always get away with this. And the horrific thing is that they will get away again with this current murder. It just continues and continues.., the same tragic story time and time again.

    • This is how government treats people no matter who’s in power.

    • That officer is brutal he should be in the slammer with other inmates and should be publicly shame

  11. Yes, come together people!!
    No justice no peace

    Sometimes blue lives don’t matter. Death penalty for these murderers .

    • Yes they do. That is why they are no longer allowed to wear it. I get your frustration but immediate termination is a Great thing, trust me.

      Hey jane doe, dismissal is not near enough punishment for what those officers did!

      mutaween464 , oh they are taught in the Academy, better to be judged by 12 ,than be carried by 6!That’s the rule of law when you’re in law-enforcement!

      Just like every black person is not a criminal, a white person a racist, a latino a drug or gang member. Not all cops are like this. Some are good people who believe in the law and justice.

    Its not the “fatal arrest” its the killing.

    • Nicole Devine | May 27, 2020 at 9:01 PM | Reply

      Right!!! It should have said “officer was arrested for murder” which he was not

    • ” Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs AND NOTED HE APPEARED TO BE SUFFERING MEDICAL DISTRESS. OFFICERS CALLED FOR AMBULANCE.” Then why did that cop NEEDED to pin him to the ground with his knee on the man’s neck? Is that some kind of emergency first aid method that they learnt from the police cadet school?

    They all were accessories to the fact; that they stood around watching, and heard the Man begging for his life. They only checked him after he stopped moving. This is Eric Gardner’s case, all over again. It is time for the Cops to stop “calling evil good, and good evil”! Stop the madness! God neither slumber nor sleep. He sees and knows!

  16. He didn’t die at the hospital, he died on the pavement.

    this is discussing!!! how can they continue to hurt people like this? WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING!!!!!!

    So the man was suspected “SUSPECTED “ of committing forgery and they decided to inhumanely slowly murder him on the spot when he was already subdued and handcuffed with 4 officers around him…if those people aren’t charged with murder..

    • Good thing he wasn’t a UPS truck driver taken hostage, he would have been riddled with bullets while the cops took cover behind civilians trapped in their cars. #neverforget

  19. ” Medical distress”. Yeah, the cop’s knee on his neck for 7 mins.!

    It’s crazy how they lied and said “he died a short time later.” When he really died on the spot.

    • Kathy Franklund | May 27, 2020 at 3:55 PM | Reply

      Isiah Michaels ,Yes because Rigamortus doesn’t sit in right away so therefore you can have leeway time for when the man died! They’re going to say he had a heart condition they can see he was overweight they’re going to say he was on drugs! They will make up any excuse not to have a white cop in prison!
