See Trump AG Barr's Response To 'I Can't Breathe' Video | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC
Bill Barr is a klown. So they killed him for selling cigarettes?
I wonder why when he was approached by the police he didn’t just stop and talk to them. Yes, this was preventable by ALL including the victim.
@100% Real Woman 4 The Throw the Bum Out Party! If you have seen the whole video the cop knew him and I believe the cop had every intention to hurt the black man!
He was caught 30 times , he had asthma and a heart condition and resisted arrest and died of a heart attack
Candy Barr acting tough but truth is he’s a coward!
This channel only serves as a spectator on youtube : Acting on Trump’s orders, more like. And, just when the whole Epstein thing resurfaces in the headlines; when they start talking about Epstein’s Saudi Connection and his real passport, in a faked name, that the judge could not get ANY answers from his defence about? . . . THAT will be when Donny announces that HE told Barr to drop this. And, the press will look the other way, again . . .
Candy Barr…I like that! Maybe we should start calling him Baby Ruth lol
They really need to be more clear on the thumbs-up like or thumbs down dislike video because we all of us know that is severely wrong!!!
Barr started his career lying and covering up for Reagan and Bush. He shouldn’t have a license to practice law.

This ought to help Trump out tremendously with his base
Unfortunately under the current administration there will be nothing done to bring justice to this type of behavior. There will be no laws put in place to prevent it. Don’t be silent. VOTE
Both NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo and USAG William Barr should be hunted down and choked…
I am a former cop.
It was Murder.
Murder requires intent. But this guy was a career criminal so 1 he knew how to act and shouldn’t have resisted. 2. He was overweight and that heart attack he had was most likely due to his health, not the NYPD. 3. Almost every criminal complains they can’t breath or their having a medical episode as they area being arrested to get sent to the hospital instead of booking. Since he’s a career criminal im sue he knew that.
Bottom line, an injury resulting from resisting arrest falls on the person resisting, NOT the police officers doing their job. I understand liberals have spent the last 10 years confusing the public but fact is, they make the laws and cops enforce them. You don’t like it, tell your politician… better yet, throw them out of office and elect someone who actually does something. Proper education and social inclusion would prevent the majority of police arrests but liberals prefer the uneducated people they can manipulate.
@Joe B Oh my oh my. How is it resisting arrest when you have 3+ policemen holding you immobile, with a knee to your head, screaming “I CAN’T BREATHE”. It would have taken a second to back off and let him breath. It’s not like he could have pulled a gun or tried to run away, he was handcuffed. But of course, you refer to “the liberals”, you are a lost cause
@Joe B I agree, and I’m a liberal democrat, I agree racism is a huge problem in the US but I don’t see it here; in the video it is very clear that these cops are simply doing their job, they would have done the same thing if the perp were white. Not only will I say this was NOT murder, but also none of the cops involved deserve any kind of disciplinary action whatsoever, they were doing their jobs, correctly!
@Francis Desgroseilliers yeah this guy’s a product of the failed education system…and I refer to liberals because the Democratic party has been suppressing minority communities for 75 years moron…they hold down minorities to control their voting base and make it appear like they are the hero’s. They’ve done nothing but enslave people for the last 200 years, only difference now is they enslave with false information and economic SLAVERY. Do some research before you open your mouth. As for a second , you’d be dead in a second if he had a gun, dont be stupid.
Disgusting police officers & william barr
5 police officers bothering with a dude selling cigarettes. Don’t they have real crime to deal with? They should lose their jobs just for that.
Most white people just hate black people because we don’t work for the white devil for free anymore
I thought the devil had horns , not fat little chipmunk cheeks.
But, if the squad did that to someone they would have thrown away the key.
Cold hearted fascism has grabbed the US by the throat.
Exactly what we’d expect to see in a developing autocratic police state. No wonder the US rates so low on Freedom Indexes in recent years.
OMG! I LITERALLY got sick to my stomach watching those police MURDER that man. REGARDLESS if he broke the law did the really need that many police men on top of him especially one that was ON HIS HEAD. Holy Sh*t. It’s seems like some police treat suspected criminals ( in America we are innocent until proven guilty.) like animals.. THIS MUST STOP! The offenders and their enablers need to be prosecuted.
I know for myself, if the police ask me to turn around and put my hands behind my back, that’s exactly what I’m going to do…
Murder is murder, unless of course, you’re a white cop murdering an unarmed person of color, then you get a meritorious service medal.
And they get away with it even easier now that the occupant of the WH is a racist also.
Now imagine Trump being removed from office the same way.
That was exactly like Radio Raheem in Spike lees DO THE RIGHT THING !
Partisan Hack Barr is now Criminal Partisan Hack Barr. How far down will he take the Department of Injustice?
