    1. why dont we see cop beating + killing white drug addicts?

      yes they can get hurt and thete are alots animals out there

      but these 2 case is cop over forced

    2. @謊仿厭hyp·o·crite you don’t see cops killing whites because the people won’t react the same way as the cops killing a BLack person

  1. Two drug addicts having insane reactions, unwilling or unable to comply. Point driven well home.

  2. Has nobody read the autopsy report on Floyd? He overdosed, the only thing the officers did was kill his high. I’d be pissed too if somebody killed my high.

  4. Was living in Panorama City an was in the riots. One of the worst weeks of my life. The closest I ever want to get to a war zone So sad to watch my city being destroyed . Also been to the location where the beating occurred. Was a few miles north of where I was living , Sadly it is happening again across the country. Violence leads to more of the same and no one wins..
