    Yes, when you see a policeman with his knee on the man”s neck , and the man is groaning in pain, asking to not let him die and calling out for his mother, yes this is a lynching!

    • Chris Avram I just drove around my republican run city. And guess what no rioting no looting no curfew.
      Why’s that? Because in my republican run city our elected local government cares bout the citizens and the city and stops any kind of this nonsense before it gets out of hand. It’s called law and order. Not to mention the private citizen will set up and help.
      So enjoy your liberal democrat eutopia. Ain’t it great. Don’t you just liberal democrat policies.

    • @Gwen D Miller Gwen, take heart. Not sure if a lot of folks know but this protest has become WORLD WIDE. Countries like the UK, France and many others are also marching in his name for racial equality. FWIW, I am white but I’m sick and tired of the racist jerks. Especially the one running our country now. Seems no one pays any attention to the real news anymore. Just stuck on fox that, BTW was just thrown out of the UK as well as Australia. And FWIW, it’s an Australian company. Hopefully, one day soon, we can become the “UNITED” states of America once again. Or, rather, I suppose, for the very first time.:) Be well, my friend.

      @garyoa1 Thank you so much ❣️ I appreciate your sharing, yes I am encouraged by the world wide support for our country, our world, We Are becoming once again, A World Leader of FREEDOM, this what we are going through should have happened when slavery was abolished, yet God Almighty, “allowed man OUR “free will” Amen
      Thank you, my friend☺️
      Keep praying and WATCHING☺️

      @David Hale fantastic David. Enjoy your walled city. Dont drive too far though, the paradise you love has a boundry. I hope your descendants dont need or want to visit study in or work in one of the other cities, the ones in the Democrat run ones. Oh “one country under God”. The dream is at risk.

    • No proper way critically not cuss this behavior before heaven and earth.
      This is 1st degree murder hang style and all parties know it.

    WE all saw the officer adjust his position so as to better apply pressure to George Floyd,s Jugular, while George was hancuffed and restrained.
    We saw him ignor the pleas of bystanders.
    Then we watched him calmly put his hands in his pocket while he waited for George Floyd to die.
    Pressure applied for minutes after George stopped moving.
    There is no excuse.

      They will try to toss legal word salads to create reasonable doubt, but, especially with this tape, along with moral commonsense, won’t work. The problem will be if a ” Zimmerman ” sympathizer will determine the verdict.

    • Linda Hemphill | June 4, 2020 at 11:34 AM | Reply

      I have not heard anyone speaking about bail being set for any of the cops involved in the murder of George Floyd. The crime the world witnessed, was brutal and And barbaric.
      Each of the cops actions/inactions, warrant excessive bails, totalling in the millions, for each of them. A one million dollar bail is almost laughable. We must not have a Grand Jury assembled, that usually is a set-up for less charges for the prosecutor. It took an outside person to have the charges upgraded. As we are aware, Grand Juries are “SECRET”! I pray the jury will adhere to facts and not racist feelings and have a “HUNG JURY”.

      Looks intentional to me and this is as serious as it gets. I’d like the professionals (Do they exist?) to weigh in, as opposed to a hyperventilating posse chosen from a peanut gallery. These incidents of racial profiling and persecution must stop.

    They think they have seen the fury of the people! God help them if they acquit those officers for George Floyd’s murder!

  7. Hanny Hawkins | June 4, 2020 at 8:27 AM | Reply

    ‘…but history shows there will be clear challenges here’… ie it will be hard to gain a conviction in these charges against police. In that case, the law is the problem. If the law isn’t clear that what those cops did to Floyd was murder, then the law is wrong, inadequate, needs to be changed. Thee should be little to no doubt about securing a conviction in this case.

    • Kimberly McLane | June 4, 2020 at 5:16 PM | Reply

      The law should NEVER show more deference for a police officer! if anything, officers should receive harsher punishments for violating the law they swore to uphold!

    • @Richard Ray ,
      That’s not what I suggested. Putin was far from my mind when I posted this.
      And FBI and CIA….every party, every organisation is confused these days. Even God Inc. The magic of Trump’s gaslighting I guess. “Nobody knows how to gaslight better than me.”

      vestiphobe Unfortunately it was well on its way and a party, some big business and other countries influence got everything ready for Trump to destroy the country.

    • @Janice Gullett ,
      No. It’s a defect in his genes. Trump would have been a destroyer of the country had he succeeded Lincoln or Kennedy or after the lord Jesus had taken over the White House for four years.

    Their qualified immunity needs to be taken away, NOW. The “mindset” of the thugs is a problem

    • Kitt Songstad | June 4, 2020 at 9:58 AM | Reply

      The average white schmoe unless they are a crook isn’t exposed to dealings with the police. It’s mostly poor whites who understand what policemen are capable of and how they throw their weight around. I think a lot of the time in some neighborhoods the cops just get bored. One time my daughter missed a court date for a traffic offense. Two big burly cops came to our door to arrest her, she was 18 or 19 I think. She was so scared and upset she had an asthma attack and struggled. They wrestled her to the ground and slapped the cuffs on my 110 lb. daughter so tight they left bruises on her wrists. I called their superior later and he said he talked to the officers and they told him they hadn’t done anything wrong.

    • I think racism is systemic in America. This comes from poor leadership, poor training and poor reporting mechanisms. It is rare that a policeman has malicious intent. Obviously, it happens but this is predominantly a training problem.

    • AGREED! Make no mistake about this, police fraternities and unions use ‘qualified immunity’ as a shield to justify conduct that the average citizen gets arrested for doing – think assault for starters. I know several fine police officers who’ve told me they’ve tried to hold fellow officers via ‘peer pressure’ to account and the union steps in to interfere in such actions. The union uses qualified immunity to justify interference with the claim of protecting each other – us [the blues] verses them [the citizens]. I maintain there’s no way any form of a citizens review board will make any difference as long as qualified immunity is in play. Stay safe – be well.

    • Kitt Songstad | June 4, 2020 at 12:20 PM | Reply

      @S Anderson well actually there has been an expansive and expensive effort to train the police in many cities. I don’t know what you do for a living but workplaces have cultures anyway, the police have a “brotherhood.” It’s easier for them to slip into an “us and them” mentality. I remember one of the last murders they committed. They got a call about a suspected home break in. They hunted that kid down and in the dark many feet away they claimed the kid had a gun. They all gunned him down. But what was going through their minds as they were hunting him down? I’d bet any amount of money that there was no home broken into.

    • Thug lives matters too.

    The cop who placed his knees on the victim and laid all his weight on the victim’s back also preventing him from breathing should also be charged with second degree murder.

      @peb frogg I’ve tried to reason with her before. and NO I’m NOT okay with the current situation, I think the majority of the republican party is poisoned and corrupted to a point where they no longer function as true human beings. I think that the lack of empathy displayed by members of the right has emboldened and encouraged racism and hate of anyone they deem “other”. This situation is sickening. I am violently appalled at any person who continues to support Trump at this point, especially if they call themselves christian
