      @Whicker Boy Louisville is republican controlled, as are several others, but what is worse is how many are in Republican states. It ain’t about your politics, it’s about treating people equally, people are tired, and blaming a politician instead of blaming the justice system means you have missed the point.

      @Rune – Thorne Why r u radical leftist HATE-FILLED demonRATS OBSESSED with conservatism???
      Louisville’s mayor is a DEMOCRAT!!! U should avoid getting ur civics from msLSD.

      @Muddy Water what’s that got to do with some one’s right to comment, America doesn’t hold the right to free speech and people from anywhere are or should be allowed an opinion.

    Police officers should never have the power to use violence against someone for a nonviolent crime.

    The so called justice system is much more criminal in how it treats people on too many occasions.
    But especially with nonviolent crime, when they throw them in jail.
    Then the so called criminal becomes the victim ..

    • Right he was a good boy he wasn’t resisting arrest he was just smoking crack peacefully stupid cops

      It seems like being anything other than white in public can get you KILLED over practically nothing. Evidently that Floyd guy wasn’t resisting in any way. That cop was a racist that abused his badge and executed the man on the street. Others looked on and let it happen. Hitler’s SS and brown shirt henchmen would be so proud of how they ‘enforced the law’ in 2020.
      Oh and BTW I am a white guy……and one who has refused to support the ultra-corrupt failed Repuke party. Their current fake 1% owned leader is by far the worst in history. Trumputin and his evil fascist moron party must be stamped OUT and the broken, obsolete Electoral College that made it possible MUST be abolished!

    • Karen Schumer | May 30, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      He never resisted arrest. Cops do that to black people because they can, and because they are racists.

    Trump has made hatred and one sided thinking the SOP. There’s no compromise, no compassion only greed, he doesn’t care about Americans or anyone else for that matter. Just his pocketbook

    • @Mike w I guess blame everything you can on the democrats.. the other side of the coin has no culpability what so ever eh? Naw, that’s pitiful thinking dude. I mean at some point its a human issue and not a political one. Racism happens in every state. The rioting while I don’t condone, seems to be the only way attention is achieved. Kneeling didn’t do it. BLM didnt. Etc. Simply put the good cops need to just call out the bad ones and this would all be a bit more manageable at least to start. But they act like gang members covering for one another.

      Hey Big Ern it’s seems anyone who is right wing or conservative has a mean streak running through them 2 miles wide.

  6. tRump and his inciting tweets and the right have infiltrated the peaceful protest with white supremacists and far right maniacs to pervert the message and to inflame even more racial tensions. Poor America.

    • Yes, exactly what he did.
      He isn’t worthy to live in OUR Country!I
      Vote Blue!

      “…would’ve ‘one’?” You seriously don’t know how to spell “won?” Where are you from?
      P.S., it’s no coincidence that folks who used to be racist, white southerners and who used to vote Democrat now vote Republican. Don’t even bother trying to pull that “Democrats are the party of racism” crap; we all know about the Southern Strategy.

  7. When a black cop did it to a white man it was first degree. THAT is wrong with this country.

    • @Earl of Mar I think China is ok with either one of them, because neither will be able to re-unite the country. Your country’s biggest enemy has always been itself – the internal divisions that have accumulated over the centuries.

    Systemic racism, mass incarceration, militarized police force, healthcare inequities, economic injustice environmental injustice this is some of what angers those rioting.

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr There is no such thing as a “Republican city.” (Not these days.) Cities by their nature attract a diverse group of folks, and they tend not to want to vote for fascists. Just saying.

    • It might anger those rioting but it doesn’t justify it.

      Back when Republicans dominated the north and were abolitionist. Now the folks who were racist white Democrats in the south are all Republicans. Unless you think all those Dixiecrats moved north and became black and liberal Jewish people living in cities?

    • Perfectly sums it up!

  11. All those other officers hold responsibility for that mans death. They stood by and let him die.

      these idiots should protest against that particular police station. Why loot local businesses and destroy other buildings? I don’t understand that stupid behavior. Are they really in love with anarchy?

    • @Realistic Man it’s an outburst of frustration at being murdered like dogs (by the so called protectors)…….must be hard for you to understand with only two brain cells.

    • Maybe some of the shame should be directed at these criminals out burning, looting and hurting innocent people!
      That anyone supports this is lunacy!’

    Should be first degree and the other three so called “policemen” should also be convicted of manslaughter. The evidence is clear.

    Trump has “normalized” racism. Voting him out is just the start of what needs to happen.

      did you ever watch All in the Family??I think Archie normalized it pretty well. Meathead was a commie and white was right. Oh simpler times indeed. Archie stood his ground and the Jeffersons finally moved away.
