Minneapolis Police Chief: Policing Is About 'Treating People With Dignity And Respect' | MSNBC


    1. @John Raymond well when it’s time to try China I’m sure that will all be relevant. For now, we’re on the Derrek Chauvin trial so let’s try to stay focused on him.

    2. @Link G Do YOU think that a superseding event, the deliberate removal of Floyd’s ability to effectively breathe by having a knee placed on his cervical spine, having him be placed in a position of positional asphyxia for up to 9 minutes, even when he’s not even passively resisting is NOT murder?

    3. @John Raymond I didn’t think the prosecution’s case would be so open and shut. The only thing Chauvin has to worry about now is how he’s going to survive prison long enuf to serve out his sentence.

    4. @TheNewfieDogGuy there’s guilty in a court of law and there’s guilty by public opinion. It doesn’t take a sage to see how we can’t mix the two and still expect “due process”. There’s resisting according to your average persons jargon usually meaning fighting (that’s why cops regularly have people resisting while saying “I’m not resisting”), then there’s the actual legal definition. Things like that, and political b.s., is why I say this is actually a complicated legal case in which the outcome could potentially set a slippery precedence for the future. All that being said, there’s no reason Chauvin should have been on Floyd that long and he IS being tried for 2nd and 3rd degree murder because it’s legally murder. We both know, however, that despite that fact many still are hoping/expecting a 1st degree murder outcome. When your average person says “murder” they’re not usually thinking of ignorance, negligence, etc. The usual thought is intentionality and malice. The court is trying Chauvin for a different degree of murder than the public is.

    5. @Demetria Karnavas oh come on he’s going to become the virtuoso of skin flute, how could he complain?

    1. @First In Last Out Honestly, Stop taking it out my taxes then. I have never called for my own benefit. I don’t have a high level of trust in them as an organization (only a few individuals)

    2. B.e.S.T f’u”l’l D.a.T.i.n.G h.o.T G.i.r.L’s —L—o—V—e—S—e—X—..

    3. @Foolish Mortal no they don’t… most cops act somewhat psychopathically and have the psychological profile of lower-management bosses in companies

    1. @Feels Did you come into this conversation just to pick a fight? Someone is a little lonely I see. It’s ok, if you need to take out your personal issues on me then go ahead. Any way I can help.

  1. Easy to Go along and Get Along ! Chauvin is just Collateral Damage to normal CYA behavior in any Bureaucracy ? Vague Language comes in handy ?

    1. Well cops get to a scene sometime cuff a person or not in order to protect themselves and others because they don’t know exactly what is happening so they need time to ask questions and figure it out. They went to put him in the back of the car because he was freaking out and crying and losing it, things someone on drugs would do, an over dramatization of what was happening. He wasn’t necessarily arrested until he started fighting with the cops and kicking and screaming, he started yelling “I can’t breathe” when they tried putting him in the car which was just to calm him down. Everyone acts like they know how police work goes but nobody has any idea. When someone calls 911 they don’t ask for your whole life story they ask for the headlines of the incident and it’s dispatch they talk to which are regular citizens not police or anything, then dispatch just gives a number for a specific crime and location. When cops get on the scene they rarely know what the situation is which is why they conduct an investigation and ask witnesses questions.

    2. @William Morgan by “producing” he means the person who made it, not the person who produced it from their pocket.

    3. @T Boman dude that’s not true at all I used to work as a cashier in retail when I was a kid and anytime we got a fake dollar bill even from one of our own employees they said there’s no use in trying to go after it because the person can just easily said they got it three months ago and they don’t remember who and they would be cleared.

    4. @Joshua Sorry but it is true. Nobody counterfeits a dollar bill. lol You CAN be arrested for passing a fake $20. It’s up to you to prove you didn’t know it was fake.
      And Floyd had a criminal record.

    5. @lololol lololol That’s why they usually take a suspect who passed a bill down to the station, then go to their house and if they don’t find a printer set up for counterfeit they let them go. If Floyd had complied that’s all that would have happened to him.

  2. Alot of police officers unfortunately don’t share this same protect and serve attitude as the Minneapolis police chief

    1. Many of them going around thinking they’re above the law because in many cases they are above the law. If it wasn’t for the protestors & that video, Chauvin would still be out there “serving” Americans & continuing killing people.

    1. Yes it is. Last year 457 white people were killed by the police and not one of them received national coverage

    2. @Olive Anyone got knelt and sit on by 3 grown men for almost 10 min? How many of those who murdered them faced consequences? Is it okay for black ppl to be murdered by police just because white ppl are murdered too? What exactly is your point here? Do you have a problem with the fact that a part of your country men demand justice and liberty, or are you upset that white ppl don’t demand it ?? What is your “whataboutism ” here about ?

  3. Police are given the benefit of the doubt because you must prove their state of mind. Everyday citizens understand that this is horrific and unacceptable. However we must pray that this animal is not set free like soooooo many others.

    1. Nelson is the man, mic drop in the Floyd case. ‘camera angles perspective’. Let that sink in before I tell you. officer Derek chavan’s knee was not on George floyds neck., It’s on him upper back. slam dunk for the defense. OMG liberals know so much that is not so.

    1. It’s going to be like Rodney King on steroids this jury better convect dis man because it’s not going to look pretty all over the nation America so they better convict this man he was wrong and he knows that the American people knows that even his own lawyer knows that America

  4. Under the ‘Crisis Intervention Policy’ and while cross examining the Police Chief : Is it just me? The defense referenced on numerous occasions “a crowd” or an individual/outsider (other than the suspect) and their likelihood to perceive a situation and how the police handle it as a ‘Crisis’, and therefore, directly affecting how the police handle ‘Crowd Control’.
    Help me understand here – are they stating the incident had attracted a CROWD, or was it that the few who gathered on this unfortunate day said/stated what to them was obvious? And should therefore be referred to as a group of concerned citizens?

    My simple understanding of the definition of a “Crowd” :
    NOUN – a large number of people gathered together in a disorganized or unruly way.
    Similar to a; throng, horde, mob, rabble, large number, mass, multitude, sea…
    As a VERB:
    1. (of a number of people) fill (a space) almost completely, leaving little or no room for movement.
    2. move too close to (someone). For example – overpopulated. Or:

    “don’t crowd her, she needs air”

    1. Did George Floyd treat anybody with dignity and respect? The answer is no, ask the pregnant lady he assaulted!

  5. Say you don’t know me, say you don’t owe me, hot shot’s and kingpin keystone cops. The devil his due’s and don’ts

  6. When this all first happened, I thought I had heard they knew each, and had worked together as bouncers like 15+ years ago? They never mention that or at least I haven’t heard anything about it, and I would think that might be relevant here? Yes, 15+ years is a long time, but c’mon, my memory sucks a 54, but even I remember – if not their name, at the very least their face!
