  1. America is NOT on trial. The Police State, Fascism, Authoritarianism is on trial. Racism is just the behavior of the Police State and white privilege.

    1. @Timotiyos Mattithyahu you sir are correct I’m a 63 year old white female.and you called it right.

    2. If you come from a culture that idolizes drug dealers then white people are probably look supreme to you. Just sayin.

    3. @Jasmany Foch Racism exists in the mind of those with a false sense of privilege over others not of their race. It is reactionary, controlling thinking and behavior. It could also express itself as sexism, social status, wealth or power. It’s the false notion of being better than… fill in the blank.

    4. @Anonymous Anonymous If you come from a culture that idolizes police while condemning any attempt to humanize their victims, you’re part of the problem. Just sayin.’

  2. This is normal police conduct only this one got caught on camera..its been a problem world wide..normal..just like slavery used to be..normal..we gotta end this..just like slavery

    1. Check out the evolution from slave catcher to sheriff to cop. It will curl your toes.
      And never jay walk!
      That rhymed

  3. The defense for the murderer of George Floyd making an argument of pre-existing condition is absurd hundreds – millions have preconditions and dying at the hands of police is absolutely absurd 2b blame on pre-existent conditions!

    1. @Ricky Ray Lopez Caucasian white is the most racist human being on the planet. That’s the proven FACT!!!

    2. A man is suspected of taking drugs Only After the cops arrived for a fake $20 bill. Got that?
      white privilege means you would be quietly spoken to. A Black man in the United States weighs his statistical chance.
      Ok Police. Why didn’t you spray him? Tase him? Just let him sit in the police car until he calms down?
      The look on Chauvin’s face was one of pure evil. Above the law.
      For better or worse I’ve watched all of the jury selection live on Youtube.
      You haven’t listened to a word. You made up your law & order mind and you hide your (censored) behind a veil of unexamined privledge. Did you listen to the first witness? The 911 operator? She called the police on the police. She said she had Never seen what she was watching before. Remember there aren’t that many CCTVs.
      I wish you lives untouched by mental health issues, drugs, trauma and alcohol.
      The pure arrogance.

    3. @Darwinsom I am totally with you and I appreciate that you have the terminology to express it to the people you have a good day and God bless you!

    4. @Ricky Ray Lopez English is the most difficult language in the world to learn. I long distance teach prisoners.

  4. America has watched this murder on camera. Whoever can deny it is apparently ok with murder.

    1. So these idiot’s want judge dredd just for black people, I get it now white supremacist at their finest

    2. @N W Some people are a trip to bring up people pasts to justify someone else’s actions. The man was handcuffed what treat he was to 4 armed police officers. If Derek wouldn’t never had his knee on George’s neck he would be alive today and for you to try and justify Dereks action it says a lot about you as a person.

    1. @Anonymous Anonymous

      Quit defending the cop, nobody is above the law, period!!!

      Chauvis murdered Floyd. Counterfeited $20 doesn’t warrant for death penalty.

      New York is now voting to end police’s qualified immunity.

    2. @Phillippe Herr
      The CONSERVATIVE United States Supreme Court just ruled that Police Officers CAN be sued, because “No one, is above the Law

  5. A CONSERVATIVE United States Supreme Court just ruled that Police Officers within the borders of the United States CAN be sued.
    NO one, is above the Law.

  6. It does not matter if the person has health issues. That officer still has no right putting his knee on a human being for 9 minutes which you can see on that recording. You can tell it was done intentional and the whole world is not blind.

    1. @hani lugtehul I don’t have an argument. I was talking Elizabeth. Not you. I know you and your disingenuous look at this that and the third. You are another evil psycho. Republicans are the dumbest people on earth.

    2. @Harold Moore i am not a republican. Yeah and you calling me evil Psycho,without knowing me says alot about you. I See youre not able to have a civil discourse so i am out. Peace

    3. That’s not the point. The point is, if Chauvin is partly responsible for George Floyds death, but not wholly responsible, it isn’t murder.

    4. @Harold Moore I do know everyone has a story but I do notice in all my life with authority figures. It seems that they do get away with murder just saying

  7. CHAUVIN HAD THE NERVE TO POSE WITH HIS HANDS IN HIS POCKETS AND HIS KNEE ON GEORGE’S NECK. CHAUVIN WANTED TO SHOW THE CROWD, WHAT HE WOULD DO TO A BLACK PERSON. BAD CHOICE CHAUVIN

  8. I get that its all good go after those cops please but at the same time what your people gonna do about stoping the violence on my people especially our street vendors

  9. I had not seen that video either.
    My option when cop was talking, it felt as if cop was trying to punish George for the way he active earlier.
    So very sad.

  10. The selfish cardigan visually drum because mascara acutely seal astride a foregoing shrine. lackadaisical, tasteless japan

  11. over a $20 bill? sweet jesus. how guilty does guilty need to be? mr. george is in heaven too soon.

  12. Really?
    a year goes by and your relative dies a year ago and you have no concern at all until you watch it on TV?
