  1. Let’s not relax so quick we have other battles ahead but I must admit this feels nice.

      @Marley E What is the evidence that Chauvin killed Floyd? Everyone here is so sure but nobody knows why. The ball is in your court.

    • @King Parsons πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ§ŸπŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ. You’re INCREDIBLY dumbπŸ§ŸπŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ.
      Keep off fox news, Facebook and Qanon- your brain might feel better.

      @Marley E Just say, “I don’t know of any evidence.” It is more dignified than the grade school illogic.
      What is the evidence that Chauvin killed Floyd? You are,so sure it should roll off your tongue.

  2. I honestly never believed I would live to see any form of genuine justice. I feel like I can breathe for the first time, too.πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

    The fact that he took the time to mention those other victims and their families during this powerful moment is really admirable and I’m sure it means a lot to Eric Gardner’s and everyone else’s family that has been a victim of this kind of senseless brutality

  4. We prayed for this verdict all the way from the Caribbean. We love you and pray that we will not have to hear or see another life destroyed so senselessly. I had nightmares after seeing that video of his death and I worry for his daughter who will grow up seeing her father dying on a video. πŸ™

    • People From All Over The Country have Been Praying For A Guilty Verdict. The Prayer Of The Righteous Availish Much.Continue To Pray.We Want Justice For All Of the People That Was Murdered By Evil Cops. God Is In Control. πŸ™πŸ™

      Matthew 18:19…. Where two or three gather in my name I will be in the midst of them.

    Thank you jury!!! Huge hugs to all these victims families and all the others that haven’t been named.

    Its heartwarming to see his brother speaking so righteously and eloquently. I bet George Floyd would be proud of his brother.

    If the story of Emmett Till doesn’t make you cry than you have no heart. Seeing George’s brother hold back tears over a crime that is 65 years old shows that he is a highly empathic person.

    • @Barb Klein I didn’t ask for your support. But thanks. You sound like a person who always has a excuse for everything democrats do. Lmao. From reading your comments it sounds like you got hate speech figured out. But is it really hate speech or just somebody opinion. Does it incite voilence or does it just hurt your feelings. Do you consider Maxine waters hate speech. If not your just a SJW troll . Do you realize if I accepted your support I must turn my back on God. No thanks.

    • @Barb Klein just so you know I’m independent and don’t align with either side. I want fair treatment for both sides. It doesn’t happen though
      When i want the news to cover more things that are happening in the black communities. They ignore the black community most of the time. One white cop harms a black guy and the news finally cares about black. It’s not fair. Watch Brandon tatum channel he will give you the names of real black victims. Then you can see for yourself the tragedy. I’m glad the cop was found guilty, but George is not a hero.

    • @Jane Day thank you for responding to me. I feel the same way. We should hear good stories as well as bad about any and all different populations and perhaps one day we will be just one very big population. I have been reaching out to people on these message boards because there are people I see who seem to have more to say and you were one of those people. It is so difficult to share on these message boards everything we believe and it is so easy to judge because of a few words. Thank you for reaching back out to me

    • @Barb Klein no problem. Sorry if I was rude toward you at first. It’s just most people on here irritate me , americas children are being murdered and the media doesnt even cover the stories. You can watch brandon tatum and he has video of the names of the kids. As a society we should teach people that police brutality is wrong but don’t glorify the criminals in the process.

    Rev. Jackson looks not well. I hope he is OK. He is legend in Chicago my hometown.

    Sad, so much pain. How could humans be so cruel..RIP now, Mr. Floyd..

  10. Very moving. Mr. Floyd’s reaction to the Emmet Till tragedy tells a lot about him. This verdict is not the end, it’s only the beginning.

  11. God bless the Floyd family. Peace be with you. Keep fighting the good fight. We stand with you and every human in our world who all deserve to be treated as a person who matters. Let’s all treat this as an opportunity to love each other.. πŸ’–

  12. “What a day to be a Floyd!!!” made me cry!!! MLK is Smiling!

  13. I glad for George Floyd family, George brother looks like such a pleasant person I’m very happy for him God bless you all from my Puerto Rican heart.

  14. I can’t stop crying. Grateful to God.

    This was a powerful day, but while we can breathe better, this is not time to celebrate. This is a time to focus and keep the momentum up. Change is here and change needs to continue. Please continue to wear your masks and socially distance while we do this. We cannot let our guard down during this pandemic as we advocate for fair justice.

    From Australia, we are so happy for you guys today 😬 Especially George Floyds Family.

    Chauvin is really wondering if those nine minutes of pleasure were worth it now.

    Parkinson’s had taken a toll on Rev Jackson such an energetic and charismatic man, so sad seeing him like this.
