    1. Yeah, definitly.
      It’s not the massive amount of fentanyl,
      He is so so nice, resisting arrest, driving under a narcotic.
      Criminal, dead by being stupid.

    2. @Darlene Jackson “the demonic demon” By it’s very definition, a demon would be “demonic.” Is there any other kind of demon? Are there “angelic demons?”

      Which kind of demons are the voices in your head?

    1. Yeah they did, there are multiple. Cause of death: overdose, covid and stress.
      He had trouble breathing before anything happend.

      The boy who cried wolf.

  1. My rule of thumb is if you come across a conservative they are racist. I lock it in and no one can tell me otherwise.

    1. The Republican Party allows nazis to join. So they apparently think nazis are ok. The citizens of Germany know that if you have a group of people, and one is a Nazi, then you have a group of nazis.

  2. I think some people have a hard time admitting the truth of a long and ongoing problem in front of our very eyes. Police Officer torturously murdered a man in front of a live camera and several witnesses *defiantly,* as in emboldened, because so many officers not only get away with it, they get a reward of time off with pay. Deny that and you’re full of b.s. That’s the bottom line.

    1. ​@Tara Panchoo The cops were trying to put him in the back of a normal police car. The same as is done for any person.

      Am I still racist when I think the same about ANY person of ANY color? I don’t care about the skin color of any of the people involved. If it had been a white person that was killed by a black cop, I WOULD THINK EXACTLY THE SAME WAY.

      I doubt you would do the same. And yet, I’m the racist, not you. You need to take a good, hard look at what kind of person you are, honey.

    2. Could the officers handled it better yes. I have always felt that the officers should have hogtied him and thrown him in the back of a squad car and hauled off to jail. To put all of this on the shoulders of the officers is BS.
      If mr. Floyd did not struggle and resist the officers would have no excuse to be so aggressive. If some people think all the blame should be on the officers and none for mr. Floyd are blind and full of it. People need to get over the excuse of racism is behind every bad deed or behind every corner. I have encountered just as many black racist as white racist any kind of racism is wrong I don’t care who it is coming from. I don’t feel that cops should get a free pass they need to follow the law just like everyone else. I also feel that some black people feel like they should get a free pass or the rules should not apply to them for one reason or another. This goes for both sides the white side and black side. Respect is earned not given. Treat people the way you want to be treated. What is good for one is good for all. This is how I live my life and I don’t speak for anybody else but myself.

    3. @Skippy Skipperson its definitely murder but racists like you has to defend murderers especially if the victim is black. Wonder of the victim was white and the cop black what your response would be then.

  3. Jesus loves and cares about you so much so repent so That we all make it to heaven,

    Like so more people can see this.

  4. Chauvin was an online killer, rather than responding to force violence, manifesting a willful expiration of life, via brute strength over a submissive citizen.

  5. He is dreaming if he thinks that a good percentage of white people will ever think of black people as anything other than less than human beings

  6. This family knew when they got those millions nothing was going to happen. It’s protocol at this point.

  7. I know a murder when I see one and this one was blatantly and disgustingly carried out on a *human being* as if he were an insect in broad daylight for everyone to watch. Chauvin needs to go to jail and I hope that it’s with some of the people he’s *put* in jail so they can all get reacquainted and “catch up”.

  8. A white police officer woman goes into a black man’s house shoots him dead and ends up getting 10 years in prison. Wow. Talk about white privilege. It’s time for President Joe to step up to the plate to step up to the plate

  9. You can go back to the beginning of slavery and here we are in 2021 black people are still praying for justice
