    He apparently had reason to be fearful. They killed him with a cold indifference to his life and wellbeing.

    • @Josef Not too hard to predict the future knowing the Police department there. And he was right.

    • ​@Sirius B Yes known to be violent and aggressive toward Black people.

      WARRIOR OF GOD You are trying too hard to defend the indefensible 🤦‍♀️ Just stop! Give it up!

      Victory Begins in the Garden sorry my reply was not meant for you.

    I guess this is what was initially edited/redacted from the version they initially released.

    • Yes, just like media conveniently omitted that George Floyd was a violent career criminal.
      And yes, I KNOW that didn’t give the cops the right to murder him over a fake $20, so don’t get hysterical.

      @The Wraith Personally I’m not hysterical. I just merely noted that there was more to the story by the fact that ‘they’ appeared to be hiding something from the originally released footage.
      You know, similar to the billionaire in the WH that hides his tax returns, the stable genius that hides all his academic grades, the “perfect phone call” locked away on a server, the ‘no collusion, total exoneration’ Mueller report that has only been released in redacted form, the philanthropist that defrauds charities, Mr. law & Order with all the corrupt friends & family members – many of which he suddenly “doesn’t know and has never met”… I could go on but I am sure we both have better things to do. 🙄

    Of course he was afraid of them, they took his life n showed no compassion for doing it #Heartless #Remorseless

    Good his family deserves a big payout even though it can’t bring him back they deserve a good life because of the loss they suffered.

    George Floyd was murdered. It’s impossible to put any other spin on it.

  6. Why can’t we see this video? We have a right to the truth.

    George Floyd called for his mom when he was dying. It reminded me of my Great Grandpa, I saw him calling for his mom when he was dying.

    • Wonder if that pregnant woman he pistol whipped and robbed was sacred?

    • Christopher Justice | July 15, 2020 at 6:15 PM | Reply

      Bill Bear He wasn’t killed for that. He was killed because he used a fake $20 bill. Nice attempt at character assassination though Cletus.

    • @hhhh9579 I second that one. Lol.

    • @Christopher Justice he was killed because he resisted when they tried to put him in the car. Jesus dude do you think they would have curb stomped him like they did if he had just gone in the car? Smh dude your logic sucks your movement sucks.

      Secoriea Turner deserves more attention than anyone regardless of race, but ya know black lives don’t matter when a black life takes it.

    • Christopher Justice | July 15, 2020 at 7:05 PM | Reply

      S. Mach He wasn’t resisting. I saw the video.

  8. Image of George getting choked by neck in the video , to this day brings tears in eyes, at same time fills me with anger. His image of him losing his life will haunt me my entire lifetime.

    • The arm choking killing of Elijah McCalin — with the officers re-staging the act AT THE SITE THEY MURDERED Elijah McClain a month after they did it, all smiling big, sending those pictures of them doing the mock choke to each other — was even more haunting. Elijah McClain was a 5’7″, 140 pound, introvert, violin playing, vegatarian who simply walked to the corner store and back, with some tea for his brother, when he was called on, as a “suspicious” man who was stopped, tackled down to the ground, by 4 big officers, with one of those idiotic officers saying: “you’re being suspicious, so I have the right to stop you…”

    • @hhhh9579 You’re a Sh*t stain on the universe.

      @pennless8 go to africa

    • Nobody seems concerned about all the black and black murders that have been occurring. Children and infants with no criminal record are being shot and killed – but not one of you can name one! Hypocrites!!

  9. He said I’m sorry more than once. He said Mama several times. Why did the others let him do it? They don’t have any excuse.

  10. Whys the Ben Crump always yelling? Don’t those microphones work?

  11. George Floyd was Murdered!

    Are these cops in prison yet?

    My ❤️ 😭. I hate this so much.

  14. 8:46.
    We don’t need any more body cam footage.
    We need a trial.

    • @WARRIOR OF GOD 🤔😆😅😂🤣😆😅😂🤣

    • WARRIOR OF GOD I don’t know how reliable OAN is but I do think more footage should be seen. I have seen the footage of the officer with his knee in the back of the neck and that’s not cool.

    It was police brutality no doubt. It wasn’t racism. If it was than those cops were a stunningly diverse crew of racists

    • Concrete Lightbulb | July 15, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      Where are the reports of Chauvin assaulting white suspects? Has anyone in the Asian community come forward to accuse him of assault? Nope, but fellow employees of the club he and Floyd worked have stated that Chauvin regularly brutalized black patrons. Just because Kueng stood by and watched as massa Chauvin killed a black man doesn’t make it any less racially motivated.

    MSNBC I hope you all get a taste of your riots..

    Stop having talking heads summarize this to us. Show us the damned footage

  18. Can’t wait to actually watch the video so it can prove this guy wrong

  19. Dexter James | July 15, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

    Show video footage with 3 peace officers kneeling on him.

    Release the video!

    I’ve read the transcripts, the dude was so high that he was foaming at the mouth apparently. This doesn’t paint a good picture for his general health. Are y’all afraid that we were too quick to riot and might feel a little stupid for the nation wide overblown reaction?
