  1. Maybe the police “choke” when they come to arrest him after losing the election!😂

    • POTUS is antagonizing BLM protestors with the new line: the police choke.

      We know the police choke black men because we see them choking Eric in plain sight but POTUS is rubbing it in to fuel more anger and hate by hoping that protestors would retaliate with more riots and looting.

    • They are still responsible for their actions. Rioters getting mad a something Trump says still proves trump is an adult an they are not.

  4. Ingraham tried to get trump to use panic instead of choke, but trump choked and kept saying choke.

    If it was his child I wonder if the choke theory would work.

    • Obviously Trump did not raise his kids to be sexual predators so you’ll never know. My son would be disowned if he turned out like Jacob Blake. Be he never will because I’ll raise him right. As should you is you have any kids.

  7. God forbid, should the day ever come, President Trump has helped us understand the Secret Service could “choke” and it would just be one of those things.

    • @Joe Wynne Good question do you think his base would protest if 2 or 10 secret service agents j-u-s-t choked! I hear its just like playing a round of golf according to fake news!

    • Paramedgirl well four cops “choked” in Minneapolis . Fakes News would piss and moan but that’s about all.

  8. You don’t shoot people AT THE BACK, 7 times , and then choke up! Is that crocodile tears or what?

  9. Great

  10. Last time I played golf I choked and shot my caddy in the back. Now I don’t have a caddy.

    The cops should let criminals or would be criminals shoot or knife them?

    • @BroncoBillieBeastie OMG! KENOSHA PD stated that the man didn’t have the knife on him it was FOUND in the car. Body cam would have come in handy but there isn’t any. Hence, BLM is calling for accountability. It is real easy to write history and argue your actions were justified!! The problem is if you are not a person of color you haven’t been targeted by the police. I have been followed at 3 am by PD and pulled over. Wasn’t speeding, didn’t run a light, all my lights on my car work and my registration is in date. Why was I out at 3 in the morning because my shift at the hospital ended at 3am. Wearing scrubs big old PATIENT CARE TECH on my badge with the name of the hospital. There were a few times I was in my EMS uniform on and I got off late because of a late call and I was followed and pulled over for no reason. It happen more often then non ethnic people realize. Getting stopped for no plausible cause. 2 men of color one with a record and one with a warrent deserved the treatment because one was a drug addict and the other had a warrent. George Floyd deserved EMS to be called the second he said I can’t breath in the back of that police car. Jacob Blake had a warrent TO APPEAR IN COURT to either plead INNOCENT or GUILTY to CHARGES! Last time I checked a person is INNOCENT until proven GUILTY! A warrent doesn’t give PD ther right to do what they want! Btw, a NO KNOCK WARRENT killed Breonna Taylor and EMT who did nothing wrong. Where is the justification for that death. DO NOT get this twisted PD, PARAMEDICS, FIREFIGHTERS NURSES AND DOCTORS are a necessary evil in our world but we all need accountability!

      @Paramedgirl He was not going inside of his car to get a sandwich to give to the cops.

      @Paramedgirl I am not saying, cause he had a warrant on him, that cops can do what they want. In that situation though, you have to make a decision. He is not listening to you, right through the whole situation. He could’ve gotten an uzi, machete etc from the car. You don’t know. A cop(s) cannot wait until a person blows them away with a gun or attacks them with another weapon. It is the cop(s) life on the line.

    • @BroncoBillieBeastie That is what the POLICE ACADEMY is for to learn how to deal with every possible solution. I have got to play the subject who is non compliant at an academy that a friend of mine teaches for at his police department. NO there is a right and wrong way. Every officer I know tore the situation apart naming all the ways this went side ways. Starting with deescalating the situation from the word go! I seen sheriff’s officers, police officers and State Troopers deescalate really bad situation that would have gone side ways. You know what you have it in your head they had no other choice deploying tazers wrong shooting people 7 times, no knock warrants that kill innocent people ( that situation happened in Houston Jan 28,2019) as long as PD can justify it your good with it. Your attitude bring back the posse and hang a subject from the nearest tree we will justify it later I will make something up. It is a good thing we don’t have body cams. Otherwise I would have to follow the rules!

  12. “I’ll never forget my worst round of golf. I was under a lot of pressure, and on the 15th hole, on what should have been an easy putt for birdie, I choked and shot someone seven times in the back.” – Robert Maguire

    • Genuinely curious…. say that cop just let the guy go with his knife and young children in the car and something happened to the children or one of the criminals victims, what would you say then? I’m guessing it would be the polices fault, what would you have done better? Tried your chances with fists against a knife, get stabbed to death and then the criminal has a gun too?

    • @Lance Mason There is still no reason to shoot the man 7 times. It is EXCESSIVE FORCE! Let me ask you this, “why is it that Doctors nurses paramedics pharmaceutical companies medical equipment companies are held accountable for hurting or killing someone but not police officers?!

    • Paramedgirl.
      Police are held accountable. At least the very few who unjustifiably shoot someone. The problem is people like you have a twisted opinion on what is considered justice. Let’s not forget. Jacob Blake is still a pathetic piece of crap who sexually assaulted a woman. I don’t know about you but all the women I know don’t like being sexually assaulted. and Blake is still alive. Who cares?

    • @rathofturkey 1) the police are not judge and jury and it was excessive force. One bullet to the spine is all it would have taken to incapacitate him. 2) I have been on scene with police officers( as a medic)who have taken subject down with out excessive force. 3) he had the man by the shirt he could have thrown him to the ground. 4) A warrent does not give PD cart blanche to use EXCESSIVE FORCE! There is ZERO excuse for the other 6 shots that were at close range. EXCESSIVE! I get lethal force when less lethal doesn’t work! The officer needs to be held accountable. A sniper can make a kill shot from at least 150 yards! Yet this officer could not complete his task from an arm length away? Finally tazers need to be deployed from 15 to 20 feet away not when you are wrestling with a subject. Therefore the officer needs to be accountable for deploying the tazer wrong in the 1st place and for the 6 EXTRA SHOTS!

    Hey, I know what he means. I missed a 3-foot putt, so I took out my Glock and shot the hole 7 times in the back! I guess I just choked.

  16. Police officers may have choked but Trump shanks it all the time.

  17. Honestly I no longer have any words when it comes to Trump. SMH 🤔🙄

  18. The police violence is the only one violence who can kill and not be arrested.Its an order.

  19. at what point do we question walking away from a cop who has a gun on you and reaching under a seat?
