    Here is the problem with using this evidence as a defense. George is shown as anything but aggressive and a danger. He is pleading, he is trying to explain, he is cooperating and he is dying. Congratualtions officer you have protected the public from a gentle man recovering from COVID-19.

    They killed him!!!!!

  3. Local Police: Come for the bigotry, stay for the power trip.

  4. George Floyd got killed for no reason, he was handcuffed and nailed on the ground.

  5. Those officers took the law in their hands.
    No human deserve to die for using fake money

    Chauvin’s wife told us all we need to know about what kind of person he is. She ditched him immediately and filed for a divorce. Even his own wife wants nothing to do with him.

      @Sparky’s Space amen. You are so right.

      @BAD BIRD it even says it was an alleged crime and you know all African Americans look a like so maybe it wasn’t even him.

      @D W I see the troll you did….troll

    • BAD BIRD- Washington Times? Lol. That’s not a legit source.

      It’s funny that jokers like you ignore every major peer reviewed and respected media source for some right wing rag and expect anyone to take you seriously. Lol.

    The “training manual” says put them in a recovery position to avoid ASPHYXIA. Derek can’t read. Neither can the president. Yet they are in powerful positions. So stupid smh

    Did training say hold your knee on his neck for 9 minutes, BLM 💜

  10. Americans are so conditioned by the militarised police state they have designed that this poor man basically co-operated while these men were murdering him because he thought it was the only chance he had at survival. Its desperately sad.

    • Thomas Reedy | July 9, 2020 at 6:49 PM | Reply

      I don’t think this has to do with a militarized police state. I think it had to do with racism, and fear based on implicit bias.

      I can see how a policeman may interpret a suspects complaints as an excuse to get away. Note: I haven’t watched any videos on it. He was probably showing more signs of distress than just complaining.

      I can’t see, how a policeman can choke a man who is in handcuffs for 9 minutes. That is police brutality. That man should not have died, but even if he lived those police should go to jail.

      And u sided with the serpent left antichrist network which is the devils legion, you piece of trash

      @Yourlife Endsnow

      There is no evidence for the existence of God. There is no such thing as devils or an anti-christ. There isn’t even evidence for a Christ.

      How can you expect anyone to take you seriously when you spout off fairy-tales?

    He knew he was going to die, and he was murdered, everything before that means nothing to me, what ever his crimes, he paid the highest price, do not dismiss any of their cases, make them face a Jury.

    • He was a loser anyways, no big loss

    • Sparky's Space | July 9, 2020 at 3:46 PM | Reply

      @BAD BIRD Tell that to the former Officers sitting in jail, they probably feel a significant loss, had one of them been competent, they would all be alive and free.

  12. Soon we will hear from policeman’s attorney that Mr. Floyd escape like Houdini attack them like a ninja and they are just poor snow white princesses (sarcasm)

  13. Lethal Truth | July 9, 2020 at 3:38 PM | Reply

    No. No. No. the officers must get life or the death penalty.

  14. Yet chauvin was “grinding” his knee into his neck, you could see him TRYING to inflict injury.

  15. Yeah, the only difference is when they’re ( cops) training their not killing fellow officers! Or applying deadly amounts of pressure on their necks!

  16. Harold Briggs | July 9, 2020 at 3:49 PM | Reply

    at the top was trying to assistant he would have taken his knee off of his neck instead of leaving it there and murdering him

  17. Lindsey Stein | July 9, 2020 at 4:02 PM | Reply

    I highly doubt the training manual says to kneel on the person’s neck even though you’re aware that they can’t breath and continue to kneel on their neck three minutes after you find out they don’t have a heartbeat.

  18. Bruce Aitken | July 9, 2020 at 4:15 PM | Reply

    Just for clarification: The knee is supposed to be on the shoulder blade. Placing the knee on the back or the neck can damage the spine and undue pressure on the heart and lungs. It is supposed to be used to apply downward pressure to control that arm while the officer is placing the cuffs on. The officer is then SUPPOSED to relive pressure and put the prisoner in a sitting position, cross-legged, immediately afterwards. In all of my years, I’ve always found that the Police departments were usually the most unprofessional in any given area. Something about the badge I guess….

    • Myra Ripley | July 9, 2020 at 7:29 PM | Reply

      Thank you for the clarification on the rules. I wish more people would pay attention to what true police officers are trained to do.

  20. If he wanted to help, why didn’t he shove Chauvin off of Floyd? The simple fact that Chauvin and Floyd used to work together just makes this whole thing seem like payback by murder. This was over a fake $20 bill. Seems like an excuse to harm Floyd. They don’t assume the person with the counter fit bill is guilty. Usually they try to track down it’s place of origin.
