  1. “I was just following orders” is not a legal defense.

    Guadalajara Mexico.Major protest young a dead in police custody arrested for not wearing face mask

  4. This is EXCELLENT 2 of the officers are new and this is an exposure of how officers are indoctrinated or removed while on probation. Welcome to the club at the wrong time.

    • And it shows how THAT particular police force shielded its crimes from accountability. They can plan clever defenses but cant plan not killing people.

  5. Bunker Baby aka stable genius who further completed Einstein’s definition of “insanity” to include “stupid”, by saying he wouldn’t do anything different if he could do it over again, has been boxing himself in, like the Schrodinger’s cat in the White House. Myself, I like the Certainty principal; he is Nuts. Anyone but Trump 2020

    • I only wish there was a strong woman of color running for prez. She’s clean up this mess of bunker-boy’s and get us back on the right track.

  6. Hate greed and ego drives the Bunker Baby in the White House

    • All that he has made happen is simply a reality show for him to watch from his bunker, while eating his KFC and McDonalds . How pathetic is that!

  7. very well said, ty prof murray and mr o’donnell.

    Nazi’s said the same thing just following orders

    I thought the escalation of this incident took place when Travis McMichael and Gregory McMichael followed Ahmad Arbery to assault him.

  10. She’s hot

    If a group of criminals commit a crime and someone is murdered during the commission of that crime then ALL parties are guilty of the murder. There should four felony murder charges.

  12. Why doesn’t Georgia have hate crime laws? 🤔 🤷‍♂️

    If they were Rookies then they really should’ve known the law unless they had white privilege to land their job.

    • Gabriella Starchild peer pressure amongst many men “trumps” conscience and bravery, sadly…

  14. They committed the crime together, they get “hanged” together. It’s as easy as that.

    Why is this even being talked about, it doesn’t matter wether they were new officers or not .
    Imagine if four coloured youths were arrested for something , would it matter if two of them said ,
    “this is my first time being arrested I’m new to crime “,
    Would they the get a free pass ? NO it is what it sounds like absolutely crazy , all these officers need to be made an example of if America truly wants change , the people have been protesting that everyone should be under the same Laws, so don’t just charge these officers, give them, if found guilty the maximum sentences to show that there is no two tier system, if these officers get let off with a slapped wrist I believe that it would just spark more hatred towards the police which would in turn be very counter productive . Those officers broke the law, so don’t let them now hide behind the law , make examples of them all

    Justice for Trayvon Martin, Breeona Taylor, Ahmaud Arbrey, George Floyd and all that have been victims of hate and bullying

  17. wow two officer didnt even make it past 4 days and fired because they took part in murder.

    Hearing that 2 of the police officers were only on the force for 2 days…and just following the commanding officers isntructions reminds me of 3 movies
    1.Serpico.Tthe fear a young officer has, of being singled out and marked if he does not comply with the code of the blue wall
    2. Training Day: How a young/new officer in training can easily unknowingly get caught up in the rogue actions of a rogue cop
    3. Casualties of War….there is a scene towards the end in the courtroom where the officer portrayed by John Leguzaimo..describes what it feels like to be caught up in an unspeakable act with fellow officers
    If we are to make changes in the police department we must tear down the blue wall of silence…but our Co-moron and Thief is more intersted in building walls instead

    There will never be change until the body count on THEIR side forces it.
