      It shows better judgment than, let’s say, an individual who might post debilitatingly cringe inducing local stand up routines to an audience of two and then leave them up.

      @Andre Tabarnak personal insults? Also very mature. Your parents must be proud of an upstanding bully like yourself.

    • Try reading the TOS you signed before crying victimhood.

      @Preston Fontana lulz at a soft headed mental midget tryna step on my lawn, gtfo.

    • @Preston Fontana Did you just insult someone because they were being insulting? Did you just call someone a bully right after posting a bully comment? Ouch.

    what else are you going to investigate for godsake….

    • It’s all on the video are they having a laugh

    • How about the actual medical reason for his death?

      If you don’t know what killed him…how can you establish responsibility?

    • not likely they wouldn’t let him breathe for 8 minutes that is what killed him

    • @lxquid

      Do you “know” that…or do you “think” that?

      When you go to court…what evidence will you use to justify that opinion?

      Lab work….
      Tissue samples…

      Because if all you’ve got is “I saw it on UTube”

      Why show up to court at all?

    The world is fed up with this BS, why do we need to protest to do the right thing!

    I think the laws should apply to the police as well. Do no harm! The other three should be classified as accomplices! They were present and could have stopped the psychopath who killed George Floyd.

    • Not at all, they tried to stop it and we’re physically stopped by the cops.

      I agree 100 percent. That’s what’s done with civilians.
      If I drove the getaway car in a bank robbery and my buddy went in and killed somebody we’d both be charged with murder.

      I don’t understand how they arrested him without a charge though. To arrest someone you have to have a warrant and the warrant has a charge on it. IDK I’m not an attorney. At least he’s behind bars where he belongs.

    • Voodoo Child | May 29, 2020 at 6:21 PM | Reply

      This news report is inaccurate, he’s been charged with manslaughter.

    • Derek known nation wide as piglet. Hey piglet your eating dinner in jail tonight enjoy !

  8. Arrest the other officer who stood by and protected him from interference too he enabled that.

  9. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    Meanwhile Minnesota is on fire

  11. Only been arrested for his own safety I bet

  12. Until all officers are held accountable the protest will not stop 🤷🏾‍♀️

  13. Still don’t know what they’re investigating everything is on video

    • Jenny Thomas | May 29, 2020 at 7:08 PM | Reply

      Unfortunately I feel like the autopsy is a cover up. It shows that there was no strangulation that caused the death.

    • Not all proof is on the camera they must check the body cams and they also have to make sure before they charge him

  14. You call a murder an officer

    That officers deserves to rot in prison and I stand by that

  17. About time they arrest him, he should’ve been arrested in the first place 😤😠
