  1. Drug use and abuse happens in all families. It should not be criminalized let alone demonized.

    The politician’s have given the police to much power! We have witnessed modern lynching of a poor black man, Now we need justice! R.I.P. Floyd.

    Shouldn’t be long before she gets hit with a smear campaign.

      @Stair force one Big guy The Republican-led Texas state Senate passed a bill early on Thursday that would ban mail-in ballot drop boxes and most drive-thru voting—in the wake of controversy about the voting practices being used during the Nov. 3 election

      @Renee Baptiste Thousands of white kids have died from opioid overdoses in Northern Kentucky, Southern Ohio and South eastern Indiana. Facts are not racist.

      @Renee Baptiste I recently watched a documentary where they were in a black community and it was plagued with heroin use. 🤔🤔

    • Drug didn’t killed him and covid didn’t killed him coz you can see footage of jorge Floyd he was laughing and he was well, he died coz he was murderer

  5. So sad the People who live in the saddest deep dark recesses of the mind!

  6. Funny how drug use is only criminalized if the user is a minority.

      Or a poor white

    • According to the media, politicians & the legal system, someone white & middle class who abuses pain-killers, is “suffering from addiction”. A white man who murders 8 women is “deeply religious” & having “a really bad day”. According to right wing media- street gangs & anti- government extremists were “patriots” trying to “stop a stolen election” & people peacefully protesting to have criminal cops like Chauvin held accountable, deserve to be tear gassed for being out after curfew.

    • Reminds me of when Rush Limbaugh was demonizing drug users, screaming they should all go to prison, but then got caught with illegal drugs himself, and sang a very different tune.

    • Meth and Cocaine is no better than Crack, Prescription Pills, or Marijuana. They are ALL DRUGS. The nerve of Classism between addicts!

  7. The word crowd keeps being thrown anound. 15,25 people is not a crowd. A crowd is what attacked our capitol. Lets call a pig a pig ok.

    • Harvey Manfredsenjenson | April 1, 2021 at 1:45 PM | Reply

      Can we call the “mostly peaceful” rioters and looters “crowds”?

    • Deborah Freedman | April 1, 2021 at 1:55 PM | Reply

      I’m sure, if 15 to 25 people were surrounding you, and yelling at you, you’d feel it was a crowd. Of course it’s a crowd, and to claim otherwise is to ignore reality. But, if you don’t like the word crowd, for some idiotic reason, will the word mob suffice?

      And put some lipstick on it while we are at it…

  8. 9 mins. No matter how high etc. 9 mins anyone would be dead. It was a public murder period

  9. Meanwhile, on fox news….they’re covering the “outrage” over a school wanting to change it’s name to Barack Obama High School.
    🤦

      Sounds like you’ve been over there watching

    • Pittsburgh has had an Obama Academy of International Studies (grades 6-12) since 2009. I’m offended that Fox never noticed.

    • @Move on Over Yeah, just checking to see if they were covering the Chauvin trial. Nope. They’re focused on the “real important stuff” over there! 😅😂

    Qualified Immunity is a Jim Crow era tool of racism used to let cops arrest church staff on the Freedom Riders.

  11. norman sabel | April 1, 2021 at 1:38 PM | Reply

    It appears that the prosecution is actually prosecuting this case. It is rare for a conviction of a criminal cop because prosecutors rarely engage in real prosecutions of their cop buddies.

  12. Playing you folks like a violin.

  13. Andrea Mitchell never went to middle school. Back when she was a young teen, it was called junior high.

    • Jack Galmitz | April 1, 2021 at 2:14 PM | Reply

      Andrea Mitchell graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League College. She has written numerous books and won prestigious award in journalism. She is married to Alan Greenspan, one time Chair of the Federal Reserve.

      @Jack Galmitz yes but you failed to address the comment you replied to didnt you, So why reply?

    • Dale Hartley | April 1, 2021 at 2:30 PM | Reply

      That depends on where you went. I can show you pics of our towns MIDDLE school from the early 1900’s when it was built AS a middle school ;). However, you could be correct that where she went it was called junior high. I know of some areas when 9th grade is still in middle school/junior high and others ( such as here) where it is in the normal High school. There is no standard form for schools, but I wonder why you KNOW Andrea went to junior high not middle school?

      @Dale Hartley you’re not worth anyone’s time.

    • Dale Hartley | April 1, 2021 at 6:22 PM | Reply

      @Jack Galmitz Your opinion matter why? You are at best a loser who only joined a year ago, or at worst a foreign trollie failing at their job. Either way…pfft to you go back to searching for dank memes

  14. Stop nitpicking about witnesses and strategies.
    Videos show a cop kneeling on the neck of a man for no reason until he died.
    That’s murder. Nothing more to it.

  15. Tessmage Tessera | April 1, 2021 at 2:52 PM | Reply

    Who cares how many drugs he used..? Since when is drug addiction a justification for being murdered by the cops..?

    • and since when are the cops allowed to be judge and jury at the scene

    • Jack Galmitz | April 1, 2021 at 5:24 PM | Reply

      The question is whether the drugs he had taken that day were alone enough to have caused his death along with his unchecked high blood pressure and the exertion of the arrest. That’s the reason. There is a trial going on you know. You’ve already convicted so what’s the point of particulars of facts of expert witnesses??

    • Tessmage Tessera | April 1, 2021 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      @Jack Galmitz When you can find a coroner’s report that backs up your suspicion, then you’ll have a point. But see, it is actually YOU have have already decided to acquit.

  16. The dealer just plead the 5th.

  17. Knightmarecity K | April 1, 2021 at 4:39 PM | Reply

    There is no crime in the US that is punishable in the street, with cops as judge jury and executioner, before they’ve even been finger printed.
    Also, an opiate death doesn’t look like that. Especially when that person is a long term user.

  18. Meth and Cocaine is no better than Crack, Prescription Pills, or Marijuana. They are ALL DRUGS. The nerve of Classism between addicts!🤣🤣oops, also Alcohol & Tobacco since.

    Why the media brings black community to talk about it where is the law loving other communities. Also, HR voting rights is not for black community it is for the survival of Democracy. Why are you guys making this as a black community issue instead of it affects all. Please change the focus.
