  1. The three other officers were technically charged with aiding and abetting a murder. I’m not sure that amounts to an actual murder charge. But second degree murder carries a potential 40 year sentence.

      When black can go to prison on these kind of charges, then why not them ?

      Is ANYONE going to protest and ask for JUSTICE for those MURDERED during the so-called PROTESTS, where looting, rioting and murderous crimes are taking place??? Why is anything being said by MSNBC about those CRIMES??

      Solution — Put each white cop with a black cop partner and if the perp is black then a non-deadly “racially neutral” punch to the face like this black woman who gets slugged by black cop! https://youtu.be/D3MCIKvVG30

      Yes!!! We have enough money to pay income to Americans too! Let the rich pay taxes and we get a tax break! Andrew Yang is right!

    • VOTE BLUE…KICK TRASH OUT OF WHITE HOUSE.

      Yeah, but Biden has already indicated he has no interest in medicare for all, and I doubt the current pandemic will change that position, as he’s owned by his big donors, who don’t want that. Also you can bet that the money was always there, what has always been lacking, was the will to put it in place by the US government, because they are owned by their big donors, who don’t want that. The only chance you had for some form of universal healthcare going in anytime soon was Bernie, and maybe Warren, but as always, entirely too many people voted in line with how the establishment wanted people to vote, so you can forget about universal healthcare in the US for probably at least another 16 years, or more.

      @Someone Else well then I’ll have a hobby to keep me busy for the next 16 years. I might even branch out of YouTube onto Twitter, or email or Tic-Tok. I might even try paper, envelopes, and stamps, if Trump* and the Repubs don’t tank our mail system.

    PROGRESS!!! Couldn’t be prouder of my country pulling together. But also disgusted by the White Supremacist, the Boogaloo Boys, who were dressing up as ANTIFA people and trying to blame it on the left, even though they’re a far-right group! They’re ABHORRENT!!!

  10. Won’t be satisfied until they all are convicted of their crimes!!

    Obviously when a cop kills someone, a federal prosecutor must be appointed since the local prosecutor works too closely with the local police to do the job justly.

    Thank you, Sir, for that scripture. God’s continued blessings and anointing is my prayer for you. In Jesus’ Name.

    Excuse my grotesque language; but, “America is ‘ vomiting”. America is in a regurgitative mode. 400 years- long overdue”. Even Jonah didn’t stay in the whale’s belly that long….

    What about the civil rights of David Dorn?

  18. Larry Elder interviews Thomas Sowell and they discuss many issues, some current some biographical. Doc Sowell sounds great (healthy as a horse), and while he has laid his pen for his columns… he says he is still in the mix via his other avenues of scholarship. I hope he updates a book or two, and publishes a few more

  19. When are you folks in media going to address the fact that violent attacks BY THE POLICE FORCES are causing injuries and bloodshed ? Protestors have been shot and sprayed and blasted with noise from THE POLICE AND MILITARY. Police brutality happens daily as we see it disperse people using 1st amendment rights. Quit with the bible photo op… people are being seriously injured because police attack MORE than the protestors have done. What’s the point of the protests? POLICE BRUTALITY !! FOCUS!!

  20. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE SECRET SERVICE SHOVING MR ORANGE IN A WHEELCHAIR WHISKING HIM TO SOME BASEMENT AS MELANIA ON STELETOS AND HER SON FOLLOWING IN PANIC😲😲😲
