  1. “noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress” – generally what happens when you are being murdered.

    These incidents will slow down when friends and relatives of these victims begin to reciprocate.

  3. I have never cried so much for anyone I don’t know in my life…watching this broke my heart 😭😭😭😡😡😡 #Ican’tbreathe

      MsVee Gotta love the 😡 response when you know what I said was exactly right, but you’re just mad because he happened to be black. You don’t even have an argument to make, so that’s why you typed a bunch of emojis. Ever go to college?

      @Braydon Wilson I am not saying what he did was right, but trying to buy food for his family? That does not deserve crushing his windpipe until he could not breathe. And the other officer just stood there smiling?? What kind of world is this. . . ????

      Ms Vee: This is because you are a soulful human being who feels for humanity. Bless.

      Shayne Punim I said that the police were in the wrong by using excessive force (read my comment above). He was forging a check, which is what caused the police to go after him in the first place.

    He didn’t die in the hospital, he died on the ground with an officer’s knee on his neck, also known as murder!

      @George

      And thier you are, the person (if we can even call you that)with the lack of morals finds his way to this thread, that ignores the video evidence and insist on coming on these threads and talk trash.

      Go away. Leave. The evidence overwhelming proves he was va victim.

      Kraye Inluv You mean manslaughter.

    • Eli Urquhart | May 26, 2020 at 10:52 PM | Reply

      Someone give me the name of the officer

    • @George How is what his mother should have taught him relevant?
      What did that cops mother teach him??!

    • @Flatheads Rebuked Isnt manslaughter unintended death?

    When is enough going to be enough or are all Black people next on the police list

    Being black is apparently ‘resisting arrest’ to these thugs in blue.

  7. The hatred in this video is Hitlerian it takes a lot of hate to do that to a stranger

    • Nelson Fundamento | May 26, 2020 at 7:48 PM | Reply

      indeed. the hatred and the cold blood

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

      It’s a deep seated, societally supported, sociopathy. These kind of people don’t really care who they hurt, as long as they get to hurt somebody. It doesn’t take them long to figure out who they can get away with hurting and who they can’t.

    • Check out what Jayden T Hayden did to a 75 yo veteran in a nursing home….

    The pot is starting to boil, and it’s getting hotter & hotter. I sense the LA Riots all over again.

  9. william esp Borrero | May 26, 2020 at 7:59 PM | Reply

    7 minutes on his neck this dude is already handcuff how much can he be considered a threat. Damm thats crazy

  10. Since when did he die “a short time afterword” he was dead at the scene, from what I can see. Is there video of these officers giving him CPR? if not he was murdered at the scene and pronounced dead “a short time afterword”and they should be charged accordingly.

  11. *Being fired isn’t enough.*
    We are all watching footage of a homicide.
    These police officers need to be arrested and charged accordingly.

      BizWiz That is what the FBI is planning on doing. Just finished watching the news, and the FBI is planning on filing charges on 2 of the 4 officers.

    Having a badge gets you fired for murder most the time instead of charged with it.

  13. Emmanuel Samuels | May 26, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

    This is the quickest time I’ve heard of firing officers for brutality

  14. L. Torrence | May 26, 2020 at 8:58 PM | Reply

    He died at the hospital, huh. Sure looked like he was gone while he had a knee in his neck.

    • Chunky Cornbread | May 26, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      Unless he has signs that are incompatible with life paramedic will continue to try and revive the person. Depend on local protocol many places will transport and CPR efforts will be ceased at the hospital. When CPR is ceased time of death will be called. So legally yes he died at the hospital but he was still murdered while he was laying on the ground with that pos knee in his neck.

    • Yeah, he cut of his jugular, so he’d probably be brain dead by he time paramedics arrived.

    • Source??

    They killed him.
    Who are the officers? They should be named by law!

  16. el bandido jefe | May 26, 2020 at 9:00 PM | Reply

    Headlines from the future: police haven’t killed anyone since citizens started to shoot back.

    • slmeucalesa1 | May 26, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      Yeah they celebrate when John Wick goes H.A.M. over a puppy…. but if we protest in large numbers over a modern day lynching they call the National Guard and SWAT.

    • 😂🤣😂🤣

    • Right…

    • Timothy Avendt | May 26, 2020 at 10:22 PM | Reply

      @slmeucalesa1

      Your pretty much right. What the heck is left to do when the DA’s don’t press charges and the superiors don’t fire them? If we take action over a clear “murder”, they call for help

  17. I understand needing to use force on someone who is resisting, but know when to stop.. especially after the person is on the ground cuffed. Disgusting officers.

  18. Carlos Chenault | May 26, 2020 at 9:07 PM | Reply

    They all should be charged with murder and should be in jail at this moment.

    It’s easy to treat a Human Being like a dog, when you don’t see them as fully human. Down with American Policing!

    • Thomas Chadenga | May 26, 2020 at 10:23 PM | Reply

      wow. this is a powerfully disturbing yet very true statement. I will re-quote you sir – “It’s easy to treat a Human Being like a dog, when you don’t see them as fully human”. Couldn’t have said it better

    • bobby briggs | May 26, 2020 at 10:24 PM | Reply

      White people would never treat a dog like that

    • @bobby briggs uh have you seen Amy Cooper all over the news dipsht? Just keep drinking your own kool-aid dipsht

  20. So freakin’ disgusting. And some people wonder why the recent incident in Central Park is such a big deal. This could have easily been Christian Cooper.
