  1. David Dorn’s life mattered….. and all the kids shot by stray bullets last summer in Chicago mattered and the little 6 year old who was shot in Atlanta last summer mattered.

    1. @Steve Walsh so we didn’t see what we saw on the video. Right? George Floyd had been a drug user for years. Now he dies from an overdose? When Chauvin’s knee is crushing his neck?

    2. @The Rockazoid mhmmm. Yeah everyone is confused but you, huh?
      The phrase is “protect and serve” and was adopted by most districts after it initially appeared as a motto for the LAPD a long time ago. And it refers to the constitution, bud.

    1. @Pepe most Africans “fresh off the boat” came from well off educated families in their home countries…. Basically People who’re more likely to succeed. Y’all did the same with Asians & created this whole Model Minority myth to undermine Black African Americans. Come up with something new. The world is watching how you your type treats African Americans.

    2. @Jill’s Sandwiches booshit, my eritrean neighbors didnt speak english at all when they first moved in. Yall keep coming up with excuses, except taking responsibility for yourself.

    3. @Pepe ????? So you have to speak English to be well educated?
      Even if they were poor & uneducated they were one of the lucky few that managed to make it out.

      The model minority is a myth for a reason.

    1. @Terrance Williams Criminal negligent homicide at best.
      These people waiting for capital felony murder are waiting for nothing.

    2. @Slick 49 its a nice thought, but still, innocent people would die. im not gonna shed a tear for the terrorists, but the people that die in the process of stopping them, that’s another matter altogether

    3. @Terrance Williams Exactly! He blocked my last comment. @ The Don challenged me and wouldn’t allow me to respond. He made himself look like he had the last word. That’s a cowardly move he did.

    4. @Augmented Space He murdered George Floyd on camera. Refused to get off the man’s neck for over 9 minutes, and you think that wasn’t intentional? Wow.

    5. @Tonya Md There is no malicious intent. The jury will come to the same conclusion.
      Personal feelings have no relevance.
      Watch *all* the body cam footage.
      He was negligent without a doubt.

  2. Rest In peace to two amazing men and Texas State Troopers, Damon Allen (my uncle) and Chad Walker. Both taken from us much too soon by the hands of evil.

    1. Only hand of evil is this show and this choice of groups over all the meaning of their people systematically abused at even individual flight. This is a distraction of people with real problems

    2. @N Thomas cool, God took Floyd as a result of him downing twice the lethal dose of fentanyl. Combine that with the meth, having cardiovascular issues, and covid; seems pretty clear God wanted him off the planet.

    3. @Balandrus read the bible fam find yourself I don’t support death just like I don’t support evil or stupidity so can y’all find other things to comment to it’s all bigger than me and you ignorant ones showing me just what most you do your opinion all matter and I’m good with that just aim it towards someone else just like this cop we all will answer to our maker see how far your evil death of any human support get you then enjoy

    1. @Connor Ó Dubhlaoich – White supremacy created the ghettoes. If white supremacy was removed, this country could become a Kingdom. As for now, this country is trash, so it should look the part.

    2. @Connor Ó Dubhlaoich – Caucasians will most likely be the minority by 2045 according to the Census Bureau. Y’all get weaker and weaker as time goes by too. The culture is changing as well and y’all are getting censored. Nevertheless, this is your final chapter of rulership.

    3. @David Patton No they didn’t you lying fool, You people are bread to be racist it’s in your DNA, disgusting set of people……

    4. @Zeeboe If it’s that bad here, then why don’t you leave? But you won’t because you know where your bread is buttered.

    1. YUP YUP Too bad there was never a video of his HOUSTON home invasion “In 2009, George Floyd was arrested for a 1st-degree felony charge, as per police criminal records/history/past, of assault and armed robbery he took part in 2007 and spent five years in prison for breaking into a lady’s house with the intent to rob her. George agreed that he wore a blue uniform to look like a government employee to gain the lady’s trust, and eventually pave his way into the house.

      The lady soon realized that the person was impersonating to be a government worker, she tried to shut the door but Floyd brute-forced his way into the house. Consequently, a Ford truck pulled up to the house’s main entrance, five people exited the truck and went straight inside the lady’s house.

      The court report mentions that the victim identified George as the criminal, tallest of all the robbers, who pressed a pistol to her stomach and forced his way into the house. George Floyd’s height was 6 foot 6 inches.”

    1. And did nothing but wait till he was dead and called it a day .Officer? What did you plan on doing? You had him in the back seat and pulled him through to the other side and out onto the ground and while he was pleading for his life, you said he should have complied and for him to get up and get into the car but not once did you let up and let him do what you said you wanted him to do. Even after he was lifeless, you continued. That ambulance arrived under a code 3 but their was no urgency other than to pick up the body.. no rush to save a mans life.. Drugs may be the cause of the medical condition but death was the cause of being kept from getting that life saving treatment…

    2. @Ultra Mag 03
      On what basis?
      Doing what he was trained to do and following through with what is written in the manual as to non-lethal restraint for those resisting arrest?
      You could well make the case that he was doing his job, I can’t say I like it and can say it’s unnecessary and maybe even excessive force but that would all actually be relative to knowing and understanding what George was going through…

      If you watch cops, The TV show, these stupid criminals on the street lie through their teeth like children and cops become obtuse… So in effect you can blame other criminals that Derek had to deal with not to mention the focus Derek had on the emerging mob and crowd surrounding the police vehicle which also could have taken away attention from George and even served as a stubborn overreaction by Derek staying on George…

  3. “The victor writes the history books…and no one will ever ask the victor if he told the truth.”

    1. @Darell Boudreaux I’m defending justice , this is the best country in the world and we have fair trails ,I’m not a judge nor do I know either party to give a biased opinion from my perspective

    2. @Jason Dixon – What anger issues? See, this is why you’re called “devils”. Because the word “Devil” means “deceiver”. You’re trying to paint me as some angry black man for telling you the truth. Well, Jim Crow days are over. You can’t get anyone to lynch me. Y’all are the ones dealing with angry mobs now and hopefully they’ll stop taking it so easy on all of y’all.

    3. @Zeeboe So, to end racism you’re going to be racist? Literally no one alive was around during the slavery crap. I was born in the 90s in the Northeast. Does that make me a segregator? What you’re doing is no better than what past generations have done. Why can’t we all get along instead of trying to divide ourselves by the color of our skin? We are all pink inside and bleed red. Get over yourself. Were you around for Jim Crow laws? Were you even alive then? Cause most of these kids rioting and looting were not. They didn’t experience any of it and are just taking advantage of a bad situation like the spoiled snowflakes they are.

    4. People ask that all the time, and even further they gather evidence to the contrary constantly. It is up to the people (i.e. us) of whatever society you’re referring to, to care enough to do something about it.

    1. That’s because they have a Marxist agenda, not a socialist agenda, divide and conquer or Saul Alinski Rules for Radicals, identify isolate and destroy, destroy what you ask, the middle class that’s the liberal dems goal then they will have complete control of the populace!

  4. Oof look at the dislike ratio. Ouch. Almost as if you can see the body cam video for yourself and see what really happened.

  5. YouTube and Google are about to get rid of the dislike button. We will be silenced and MSM will continue to lie, deceive and divide unchecked.

    1. @Zeeboe It isn’t about right and left my friend. It’s about you being against the narrative in some way. I’m conservative minded and I get censored no matter what I do.

    2. @Konrad Curze – I’m a self-admitted liberal lunatic. That’s how much I loathe the system. Even the stuff I don’t personally agree with, such as stuff mostly related to things of sexual natures – I just laugh, shake my head and move on. (I get an extra laugh knowing how much some of that really bothers the more extreme conservatives.)

      But I digress. My point being – If I’m on here bashing Trump and promoting the violent destruction of white supremacy and I’m getting my posts removed, that tells me that most likely YouTube has bots on here that remove posts that contain certain words and there may be a limit to how many times that word can be posted.

      To be fair though – It’s their website and they can do whatever they want. We can leave if we don’t like their rules.

      All this does though is motivate me to save my comments via email, because one way or another, I’m getting my text in.

  6. Being Black I think we should have a national holiday “Saint George Floyd Day” to celebrate the life
    of such an exceptional human, a true hero and role model for blacks everywhere

  7. One of the known symptoms in some small percentage of people who encounter the coronavirus is acquiring a paranoia like that which may have been involved in this incident in Minneapolis, and may have also been implicated with the recent shooter in Boulder, Colorado. Even people who are younger and don’t get the typical symptoms of a viral infection, and a small percentage of even those who have been vaccinated, may exhibit these symptoms. This will be happening more and more this year and in the year to follow, perhaps to someone you know and love.

    How do we want our society, and especially our police departments, to treat such cases, especially when the one who is acting paranoid or delusional may one day soon be your child or your grandchild? Every day in America, about 10,000 children have a birthday which enables them to legally purchase a firearm, and all across this nation, we have police that have had to deal with delusional, paranoid, and often armed kids. How do we want this all to ‘play out’ when it is, after all, our own children who we are attempting to help, and to protect and serve? – j q t –
