  1. YES! That has been my thought! This is a civil rights issue as well as a murder!

    Trump sounded more like Mussolini than Lincoln. He should go back to his bunker and stay there.

      Roger Martin You are very astute. This is an ideology based on white supremacy, fascism, and pseudo-Christian Theology! Fascism and alternative right, conservatism goes hand in hand with white supremacy! Peruse the book. “Death of The West” by Pat Buchanan. This book was written around 2000. This fear is based on low Caucasian birth rates in America and Europe! They are terribly afraid because there worldwide population is only 800 billion Caucasians!
      They are outnumbered at least 11 to 1 on Earth. These people are trembling and 😱 afraid.

      @Black Body Radiation Sorry, while I do know that white supremacy is a problem. I do not see it correlate with the Trump presidency.

      trump is no Christian. He is the antiChrist.

    Shouldn’t Barr be doing the same

      @Bhagavad Gita not funny for death by a civil law enforcement unlawful is a CIVIL RIGHT FEDERAL VIOLATION OF RIGHTS they enforce unless death by COP IS OK

    • Jeremy Backup | June 2, 2020 at 5:52 PM | Reply

      The sad fact is, Barr fancies himself as Trump’s personal attorney. Nothing Barr has done has been in Americans interest, he’s there to serve and protect Trump at any cost, even if it means standing against America.

    Charge the other three too. They all should pay for what they did and didn’t do.

    • Sleeping giant of Yamamoto | June 3, 2020 at 1:57 PM | Reply

      The other 3 cops involved are asian, black, and Hispanic. It dosen’t adhere to the agenda, so they’ll be fine.

    • @Sleeping giant of Yamamoto Exactly, this was never about race, but a great excuse to steal and mill and destroy things.

      @None Given For the Proud Boys, maybe.

    • @allabout perspective Cults? Antifa, BLM, CSP, George Freud outrage, CNN. Abandon all who have eyes closed too tightly.

      @None Given There is one cult that stand out of the crowd of cults , it’s the one where the followers believe absolutely everything even when the cult leader changes his tune, the followers abide the alternate realities they are feed. And a Clown as cultleader.

    Well now they are getting somewhere,,,,,, it’s about time,,,,,but, how do you penalize a police department?

  8. Shane Gordon | June 2, 2020 at 5:40 PM | Reply

    Thats a start and them other officers need to be charged with the same how they laid on the lower half of his body and enabled him from fighting for his life and the other just watched has if he seen them do it before so yes they need to be held accountable also…..

    The whole world is in shock and dismay at what the USA has become.

    • Craig Thibault | June 3, 2020 at 6:03 PM | Reply

      Sleeping giant of Yamamoto nor do I believe any country is perfect, all are a work in progress. Our species and life on earth is a work in progress. But we need balance and truth, and we have to realize if we are all going to survive that we need to do so together rather than tearing ourselves apart because of political views or melatonin levels. The US is full of aggression and low on patience and compassion, and I hope you all have the wisdom not to tear yourselves and your brothers and sisters of all colours apart for nothing, which seems to be where you are headed.

    • Sleeping giant of Yamamoto | June 3, 2020 at 6:13 PM | Reply

      @Craig Thibault I suspect a reason you won’t mention your country. Regardless, most Americans know that china is infiltrating our society and media, that others wish to see us destroyed, you think the media is portraying the truth? Certainly not the media here, we know it’s a branch of the democrat party. We elected Trump to combat globalist tyrant’s and the left and their media attack dog has thrown a fit since. If America was an aggressive military power, we’d own Canada in a week. So please, continue the anti American rhetoric and watch some extremist’s on TV because the rest of America stockpiles weapons and supplies, just waiting for our time to step in.

      @Sleeping giant of Yamamoto
      You don’t have to worry about other countries destroying yours, you are doing that yourselves. The moment you break out your stockpile will be the moment the US will die. The constitution will be dead. The Bill of Rights will be dead. Law and order will be dead. Liberty and Justice for All will be dead. You will bring tyranny.

      I wish peace for you and all Americans, who are all created equal.

      @Craig Thibault dream on buddy.

      @Sleeping giant of Yamamoto It is a dream as long as people choose violence.

  10. Wishing safety to all protesters and wish Trump would ..well you know….

    • Walk right out into the middle of the group????
      I’d LOVE to see that!
      He would not make it back.
      But we all know, full well, he’ll be HIDING again in the bunker, 3,000 feet below the ground!

    • Eh, choke on his burger, fall down the stairs, have a hartattack on his golden toilet, have his wig fly off during a speech, get hit with a meteor, get bitchslapped by Pelosi, forcefully dragged out of the WH by marines…
      Am I close? 😉🌈🖖🏾

    • @Joe ROFL Joe! You just won the internet tonight!
      Cheers and stay healthy.
      And thanks for the giggle!
      All of the above will happen.
      As a Ru Paul’s Drag Race aficionado, I do look forward to the flying wig thing.

    The cops must be laughing since they all know that whatever happens, killer cop’s will pay nothing directly for the brutality they unleash and that their pensions will be safe and sound.

    I don’t know about you all, but as long Trump is in office, I CAN’T BREATHE!

      They’re black, asian, and Hispanic. Don’t fit the agenda.

      @Sleeping giant of Yamamoto does not matter if they have pink polka dot skin.
      The agenda is , you privileged thug , is justice.
      I’d love to dish out some rough justice on a Trumpist traitor dog.
      It’s a dream.
      5 minutes in a room with just one of ya.
      It would be 5 minutes you would never forget.
      Flog some sense into ya boy.

  15. All while this is in front.
    Trump and his regime is behind the scenes ripping away any and all laws and protections that inhibit maximum profits for him and his kind.

    Good. Arrest all four. Strip their pensions. Make police records public. Remove Trump. We all know peaceful protests outweigh any looting, we’re not changing the subject.

  17. Considering this police department used this technique to bring another 44 victims to unconsciousness, I think this charge/complaint is a minimum action.

  18. We don’t need leaders, we need representatives

  20. I wonder when the other three murderers are going to be arrested.
