  1. Unauthorized release means we didn’t get to edit what really happened so we could cover it up!

    1. @SMS2884 No! You are missing the point. The video, the comment and General subject at hand was the way the police officers both beat that man to death, handcuffed face down on the ground, then lied to the doctors the family and on their report about what happened. They said he died on impact in the car crash. You want to hold him responsible for running from the police. Was that the best thing to do? Absolutely not. Does that justify those police officers committing multiple crimes, making themselves criminals murdering that man? Absolutely not. The only person you have criticism for is him period at no point did he make them beat him to death.

    2. @SMS2884 stuff like this absolutely happens in other parts of the world. What are you talkin about?

    3. @SMS2884 that is absolutely not what it’s about. It would be if the doctor then took his scalpel and cut the man’s throat because he wanted to blame the doctor for being obese. But other than that happening, your scenario is completely insane. They murdered him and try to cover it up. You can try and ignore that all you like. You can also try and ignore the fact that that makes them the criminals, but if you want to know what the problem is, that’s the problem.

    4. @Cropper Copper How many does it happen to? In 2019 it was 13. That’s a day in Chicago easy by other black citizens.

    5. @SMS2884 thank you for proving my point. It’s not a damn contest. All you care about blaming black people…. And please site your source for that number.

  2. Imagine how much this has happened before Body Cams and Cell Phone Cameras started catching it on tape?

    1. @Deathbrewer TOTALLY AGREE

      BUT

      we gotta get this killin brothers for almost nothing….corrected.

    2. @Kathleen Pogue racism is built into everything in our country. It has been, our history is mired in racial inequity. Older conservatives would possibly be less afraid of terms like “racial inequity” if they’d been taught about it in school but we see how that’s playing out. I haven’t actually seen what they’re teaching in schools regarding critical race theory but I would imagine it’s watered down and people are still throwing a fit.

    1. @Rachauna Dixon – Clearly those cops went overboard. And no one in their right mind should condone a beating that leads to death. However we’re also done hearing how these precious lil angels were snatched straight out of their cribs without provocation. I stand in utter disgust & fury watching the footage of Caron Nazario. By All accounts That incident should’ve Never taken place. However every other video as of late are criminals being criminals. And traditionally those living by the sword tend to die by one…

    2. @Rachauna Dixon “arrest…he deserved to die?”: No, only YOU say that.
      Do you know why drug dealers get shot by other drug dealers?
      Answer: drug dealers put themselves in situations “conducive” to being shot.
      Tl;dr: Greene’s criminal record suggests he was not a stranger to putting himself in a dangerous situation (high-speed chase is very dangerous).

    3. @GREYJACKAL 72 I get your angle. But the human being in me refuses to so callous. At the end of the day, there was not a bit of humanity shown in this video. I don’t think there is a soul on Earth that fits the definition of perfection. And then toss in a just a “pinch” of systemic bias and racism and a pattern develops. It’s just up to the individual what lense you want to look at it from.makes you assume he’s a criminal? It was supposedly a failed traffic stop that led up to a “car chase.” After all that you saw and heard in the clip,, regarding the actions taken post death, do you still deem those officers statements of the encounter, as factual?

    4. @R2Mintus Curious to what his criminal record was? And also how it is relevant in the discussion of his murder by the officers.. pretty sure they weren’t privy to it before the savagely beat him.. Also you are ignoring the fact that the “car chase” is only witnessed by the lying murderers aka . Why would you assume it to be true if literally everything else reported was blatenly false. SN: on his criminal record is redemption even a thing anymore? Have you ever made a mistake in life???

    5. @Rachauna Dixon It’s relevant because criminals have a way of getting into dangerous situation. You and I are almost guaranteed to not put ourselves into dangerous situation (like driving away from police). (If police brutality is real, then I’ll just collect my payday in court).

  3. This hurt me to the core. I watched this for the first time last night and i dont want to see it again. I can imagine how his relatives felt after seeing that video. I hope that everyone from the chief down is held responsible because he has to know what is going on in his department.

    1. First of all we don’t have all of the video.. secondly I believe that anyone who runs in a vehicle endangers innocent lives and deserves a beating…

  4. Damn 2 years and still premature? I know the government work slow but this is to a whole new level

    1. Nah only a cover up could take so long and would have taken longer had the tape not been leaked!

    2. You probably have never beeing in Puerto Rico, a case that don’t appear on tv can last decades without a solution and with all evidence, Criminals confession etc…

    3. Just another day in Northern Louisiana. Just imagine what has has been disposed of in the bayou and swamps.

    4. “un-authorized” aka.. Someone released footage that we are afraid to be seen. They’ll try to go after the “leaker” 1st and worry about the murder now that they a public reason to do so.

  5. Another name on the list, it never ends. I’m only slightly hopeful that the bastards involved will get hard time for this.

  6. And yet there will be people that saw “He deserved it because he is a criminal”. I’ll tell you what, if I EVER saw this happen around me, I would show them what a criminal REALLY is because they wouldn’t be alive to do this again.

    1. Nah, you break the law, anything after that is on you, and people who make assumptions before they see the whole video are just liberal clowns mad that white people exist.

    1. @Jason Rican I will be glad. He got NO justice his family was left alone this is horrible.

    2. @INSECT BITE *-* ok but sometimes bringing these issue to the public is as a lesson and to remember the guy not destroy local towns and businesses

  7. I guarantee they are putting more energy into finding out who released the video then they ever considered putting into investigating what’s on it.

    1. @doomslayer420 nope. Youre just a radical left winger who cant understand that centrists take views from both sides. Who are you to tell me what I do and do not believe in? That sounds just like Hitler. Just because I have some right winged views does not make me right winged. Why is that difficult for radicals to understand? You literally label anyone who even breathes a centimeter more to the right a right winger. Would your opinion change of me once I tell you I am anti-death penalty? And yet again, you failed to address how if I was a Trump supporter, why would that matter? What would that have any relevance in? Also, one last thing. You do know that some centriat voted for Biden and others voted for Trump right? So you can be a Trump supporter and a centrist

    2. @Hazel Johnson and what does it mean to wear that badge? Protect and serve? you don’t seriously buy that crap? A cops job is to murder and rob those the government doesn’t like.

    3. How much “editing” will the police do to the video.
      He was murdered. All the police involved need to be charged w/murder!

    4. @Allison Roberts they did their job…. dude was breaking the law then chose to assault and run from the police… dont want to be shot, follow the rule of law and if you dont say my bad and do the time like a contributing member of society….

  8. Father we want and need your assistance Now Father. I beg of you. This happens more often then not.

    1. @bbrucet3 Good day. I can comprehend how it may seem that way. However the Father hears, sees, and knows the hearts of man. We are all given free will and must make a choice and take a stand of our own volition. Therefore it was not up to the Father (in my humble opinion) but up to man to choose. Peace be with us all.

    2. @bbrucet3 That’s not true. You don’t know anything about anything. All you’re going off is this video. This man sacrificed his life to bring this disturbing matter to the limelight. God did work thru this! He works thru everything and has to get around our free will. You don’t know how many lives were changed and touched thru this. You’re not God. You cannot see the entire picture as he does! Underestimating the Lord is a very foolish thing to do!!

    3. Finds the facts before you speak. In the entire year of 2020, only 9, yes only NINE unarmed black people have been killed by police.

  9. There was another video shown, He was hogged tied, dragged by his feet face down to the vehicle. Also reported, he was taken to the ER and told the doctors that he died in a car crash. One doctor noticed 2 tazers still imbedded in his back. That doctor wrote the info in his report.

  10. Investigate the examiner too… because there’s no way they could have looked at the damage done and attribute it to a car wreck.

    1. I’m not sure, but I think it was the examiner, or another secondary examiner who called the police out and said that the injuries didn’t match the accident.

  11. *i had a state trooper lied on my report when i got pulled over….. i trusted him since i too go to school in law enforcement and now i trust no police.*

  12. They need to be arrested ASAP! Each and everyone of them involved! That man and his family needs JUSTICE

    1. You look like you have to arrest the whole police force of white officers here in the United States

    1. They do this daily. Just imagine what they have been getting away with for years without the cameras. It’s sick to even think about

  13. PRAYERS TO HIM.. HIS MOTHER.. AND TO HIS FAMILY. MAY GOD EASE ALL YOUR PAIN.. JUSTICE IS COMING..
    GOD BLESS THE DOCTOR WHO TOLD THE TRUTH!

    1. Anyone who runs from the police in a vehicle endangers innocent lives and deserves a beating.. what if he had killed or badly maimed someone like you while trying to escape officers… And that happens too frequently…

  14. Unauthorized release means we didn’t get to edit what really happened so we could cover it up!
