  1. Interacting with Police is lethal, jaywalking, not so much.

    I am white. Can’t tell you how many times I have jaywalked. I was never stopped. This is insane!! This needs to end!!

    • You have the complexion for the protection

    • @Sarah Jane you probably have the complexion for the protection

    • @Brian Jones you have the complexion for the protection….Blacks have the complexion for the inspection 👀

    • @Brian Jones The cops weren’t bothered about him on the road, They just wanted to identify him. Did you not hear the cops talking before they drove to him?

    • @Brian Jones You’re the embarrassment!! People who can watch this sh-t and have no human reaction are not human!! One day you’ll be standing alone!! Hard to believe you can stand at all without a spine!! I know many deplorable s’more human than you, you dope!!

    It’s like they were lying in wait for him. Not like, “Oh no, this guy’s jaywalking in a busy intersection, someone could’ve gotten hurt! We need to give him a warning.” The place is deserted and the cops are bored.

  5. This is so hard to watch. I feel so sorry for him.

  6. Only in America can you die from JAYWALKING but not from a car but the police.

    He stood up for himself. That was his only ‘crime’–the cops came out of nowhere and got up in his face and Reinhold was indignant. He was angry and had every right to be and if he were white he’d probably be Zooming with his lawyer right now about filing a complaint.

  8. BS them pigs lied as usual!! Always with ” he’s grabbing my gun” KEEP EARNING THE HATE

  9. Yeah, that was blatant premeditated murder. He made a decision to go for it, he decided to murder that man.

  10. I’m sorry, but this is not the law, this is murder. These officers had no right to even interact with this man, they killed him

  11. Oh so horrible so sorry. condolences to his friends and family.

  12. Why does this happen when the people who stormed the capital went to hotel s , got on planes, when they should have been arrested THAT day. They attempted to over throw the government.. our country… but where let to leave? That’s b.s

  13. Police officer should be charged with murder

  14. How the eff is he dead when, a bunch of white men stormed the Capitol and killed a cop 😡😡😡😡

  15. People will only take so much. Since the justice system won’t protect us, we’ll start protecting ourselves

  16. The world is watching the decline of the US.

    Couldn’t just leave it at a verbal warning. The guy wasn’t even interrupting traffic. Now he’s dead.

  18. 1990- “He’s got a gun!” Bang bang bang!
    2021- “He’s got my gun!” Bang bang bang!

    Cops be saying ” I fear for my life”
    Not realizing the unarmed black man they’re attacking “fear for his life” as well.
