    This is a good start

    Arrested with no charges. Sounds like they’re sheltering him.

    • David tinch | May 29, 2020 at 2:38 PM | Reply

      @H H 1 was done in broad daylight and had witnesses. The other at night with no witnesses other than the 2 cops on the scene. See any difference?

    • @David tinch nope not at all cause body cam footage and the reports where there

    • David tinch | May 29, 2020 at 2:54 PM | Reply

      @H H No body cam needed in this situation, the whole world saw it as it happened. If body cam caught the other incident, I’m sure the video had to be seen/investigated before a decision was made. Either way there’s no excuse for killing unarmed citizens.

      @Give It To Me He will be punished, the charges are subject to change. He will be put away for a long time, the world is watching.

    • Universal Soldier | May 29, 2020 at 3:14 PM | Reply

      He’s been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

  4. William Jennings | May 29, 2020 at 2:09 PM | Reply

    It won’t end until the other 3 cop’s that stood there and watched are taken in and all are charged according

  5. Josh Bettis | May 29, 2020 at 2:09 PM | Reply

    They only did it to keep the people calm. STAND UP AND FIGHT BACK!!!!!!

  6. love how they aren’t saying the man who KILLED George Floyd…….

    • Touching Cloth Productions | May 29, 2020 at 4:36 PM | Reply

      They can’t say that. As obvious as his guilt might appear, he’s innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

      @Touching Cloth Productions
      The media is not a court of law.

    • Touching Cloth Productions | May 29, 2020 at 4:49 PM | Reply

      @Harzburgitic Exactly. The media reports the things that happen. And unless it’s an “opinion” piece, they are supposed to do it as objectively as possible. They can say it sure APPEARS that this cop’s actions led to George Floyd’s death (which it does) but they can’t call the cop a murderer. Not yet. Although since he has now been officially charged, they can call him an “alleged” murderer.

    • Harzburgitic | May 29, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      @Touching Cloth Productions
      It APPEARS that he MURDERED George Floyd.

    • It’s usually guilty until proven innocent.

  7. Yeah!!! Keep his tail in jail! Demon!

    • @Hans Danzig they wouldn’t, but they certainly would put a corrupt police officer in jail for killing an innocent person.

    • @Hans Danzig have seen you all around comments trying to defend. wow this just shows you are exactly like them and why the world is how it is.

    • @Hans Danzig You don’t know honor. Why was he arrested then?
      You must be a racist or some other form of ameoba

      Hans Danzig stop being part of the problem

    • Sherekhan420 U | May 29, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

      @erika c he’s a racist trash with the same mindset as the officer that killed George

  8. TIME TO WAKE UP | May 29, 2020 at 2:15 PM | Reply

    Good ! Now take him to the prison !!!

  9. Everyone please give and receive from each other the “advice” that is right, reasonable, keeping balance and protecting the right.

  10. Where is the footage of him being taken into custody?

    • @Walden “Would you like fries with that limo Sir?”

    • @Jan Asamoah it was a joke… man

    • Jack Smith: I’m curious about why you’re not outraged? And why you conflate criminals killing people and cops killing people as if it’s the same thing? The outrage is over cops getting away with murder. Are you too dense to understand that or too callous to care?

    • @Maargen Bx Nah, he’s just too busy polishing his knob for when he gets to go to a MAGA rally in the future.

    • U sound like a Karen

  11. My condolences to the family of George Floyd. R.I.P, George

    You know this is big news when Covid-19 news is replaced with “Breaking News” on YouTube.

    • Hahaha, the media machine is done with Covid. Instead of owning up to the fact that they assraped the country with their hysterics, they’ll just move on to race riots again. It’s been a while.

    • Reed Austin | May 29, 2020 at 3:13 PM | Reply

      @Kyle I personally don’t think the media’s fearmongering is really the problem. I think it’s that there are a lot of people who just can’t handle this pandemic properly. Let me guess, you think the virus is a lie?

    • Reed Austin | May 29, 2020 at 3:14 PM | Reply

      @Spit Dragon If there’s one part of this whole Trump witch hunt it’s this point. What was he thinking?

    • @Reed Austin since the virus has never been isolated and none of mainstream media’s Claims can be backed up, Yes, it is a lie. Orchestrated, just like these riots.

    • Reed Austin | May 29, 2020 at 3:56 PM | Reply

      @Ticalion so you’re saying that Covid-19 is a lie, made up by the entire government. Remember that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Also, what would the government gain from all this fearmongering if it really is a lie?

    Just give him to the protesters old school

    • The protesters weren’t was the looters that caused the problem..

      Are we really trying to one up what he did now?

    • It’s not a protests it’s a riot

    • Akweli Parker | May 29, 2020 at 5:44 PM | Reply

      Have a fair trial, conviction, and sentencing, to show no one is above the law, especially not rogue cops. But then put him (them) in gen pop. Their notoriety would surely not go unrecognized.

    To protect him from the angry mob, he is one of them

    • @Nathan they’re burning down their own city. They deserve to be shot for being as stupid as they are

    • Democratic ran city’s Democratic police department.= Dead Black men. Why vote Democrat.

    • I hope the Chauvins family got a good look at what Derek was up to at work.

    • Everblue Freediving | May 29, 2020 at 3:21 PM | Reply

      @Gary Vance you really wanna start looking at police killings in GOP cities and states? Maybe check out Texas… the Tuttle and Nicholas police murder that even Chief Avecedo defended till the family hired a private team and caught the cops mid lie… one example of hundreds in GOP controlled places. Learn something, read, cure your ignorance.

      @Gary Vance I never realized all police brutality only happened in blue districts. Interesting how true that is.

  15. He’s been arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter. It was announced by the Hennepin County Attorney.

    • Nino Almighty | May 29, 2020 at 4:37 PM | Reply

      @The Lone Wolf not yet, he has to be convicted first.

    • The Lone Wolf | May 29, 2020 at 4:40 PM | Reply

      Nino Almighty Hopefully he will.

    • Third degree murder: Whoever, without intent to effect the death of any person, causes the death of another by perpetrating an act eminently dangerous to others and evincing a depraved mind, without regard for human life, is guilty of murder in the third degree and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than 25 years.

      I don’t understand how the officer’s unauthorized and unnecessary lethal force, and his blatant disregard for Mr. Floyd’s life as he cried for help is considered “unintentional”. But in the end I hope justice is served without bias.

    • Gudda Riley | May 29, 2020 at 5:20 PM | Reply

      @Traci Schmidt they just released the autopsy saying he died from an underlying condition not asphyxiation

    • That pig should be locked up and put in gen pop. And let the inmates put their knees on his throat every day for the rest of his life so that he can be reminded and know how George Floyd felt.

    They’re missing 3 cops

    “They’re deciding on what to charge him with”
    Really?! Unless they charge him with murder, this just shows how corrupt our gov works.

    • Dude.. they need to take the time to charge him with something that they are certain of the jury can convict him on. A rushed case could set the man free..

    • Manu Leilua | May 29, 2020 at 2:54 PM | Reply

      @Dude you got a point

    • BuckGreywolfe | May 29, 2020 at 3:07 PM | Reply

      @Manu Leilua
      The ONLY point.
      IF protesters want justice then they should stop giving the defense attorney all the ammo he needs to have bias brought to court.

    • American Dude0520 | May 29, 2020 at 3:35 PM | Reply

      @The Acorn third degree murder, get your facts right

    • Manu Leilua this is not good he has not been found guilty and executed until then there will be no peace

    Fun isn’t something one considers when arresting cops, but this does put a smile on my face.

    • @M T i watch it on ufc nearly every Saturday night. We also do jiu-jitsu, so knees on heads, chokes etc.. aren’t a big deal.

    • Will so why did he pass away?

    • bodybalancer | May 29, 2020 at 3:58 PM | Reply

      S EE not to debate semantics but in this case- i agree/disagree with you, bc justice in this case would mean him getting convicted of murder and being locked up for a LONG long time and hopefully, not getting to even live out that sentence bc he gets some prison yard justice, the exact same brand he served to George Floyd himself- he should get his own neck stomped on. So, i do think he deserves “justice”- but not mercy* which I think is what you meant here. No he had none for George and it was a GROSS abuse of his power that he never shouldve been given in the first place there is zero justification for what he did. None. Period.

      American Dude0520 Third degree murder is only used in Minnesota, Florida, and Pennsylvania. I don’t know exactly what it is but it has something to do with abuse of power and unintentionally killing someone with unnecessary violence.

      @Will How man are dead in UFC? I’d say this is a “big deal”
