    How do the officers not get arrested tf

  • SkygotDrip

    I know it sounds like all cap but I feel like I would have pushed the cops instead of just videoing no matter the charges but maybe I’m just over my head🤷🏾‍♂️

    He’ll be found guilty of man slaughter and other charges. Probably get 10 years, and released in 4.

    Man I’m for the boys in blue, but this is not acceptable. He deserves a severe punishment for killing Floyd. The man did nothing wrong...

    Floyd was a criminal and shouldn’t have resisted..... if you don’t resist he wouldn’t have been on floor

  • Hojin

    Not a cop but a murderer.


    Another attempt to blame the cops for doing there job. When he resisted arrest this is what happened. Now you have again hundreds of black people breaking the law by burning,looting stores and they think its right? They need they to be held accountable too.🧐

    Having a cop put his knee on your neck while asking for the right to breathe, that is what having your rights taken away really looks like. Not being told you can't work out or get a haircut because public officials are looking out for right to be healthy and live.

    If we truly are a nation of cHrIsTiAn fAmIlY vAlUeS™️©️ that truly believes in the idea of aLl lIfE iS sAcReD©️, this police officer should get the electric chair. An eye for an eye. And if the justice system fails once more, well,don't be surprised when further riots break out. At this point peaceful protests have shown that NOTHING changes. So logically the next course of action? Use violence to respond to violence. Simple concept really. Remember, the US was literally born in the aftermath of the destruction of private British property and goods.

    They need to use the death penalty on the knee cop.


    Some cops take advantage of having a badge. Maybe some are racist and get in being a cop to execute their target .FK ALL CORRUPTED PIGS 🐖

    Since when do you wait to check a pulse after loading him. Stabilize him, check the pulse, then do CPR. The reason you do CPR is to bring a dead man to life. Did they even check his heart rhythm and attempt to defibrillate?

  • sherzod

    People should not be breaking and blaming the whole police department. These 3 guys don’t represent the whole place. Them breaking cars can lead to the police not being able to help the once in need right now. More peaple are losing lives bc of protest. Geaorge wouldn’t want that

  • Lisa

    Just sadness! Poor man was killed and pleaded. They could clearly see he was going to die.

    He was resisting arrest when they were trying to get him out of the car. Then, he is resisting them escorting him to the vehicle. Then, it looks like (just my opinion) he dropped to the ground, a common tactic, as they were taking him around the rear of the vehicle. He is a big guy, and was obviously not complying with the officers, or else it wouldn't have taken three of them to hold him down. Nevertheless, the officer should not have been pressing onto his neck, or continue to do so when the guy was saying he couldn't breathe. I'm sorry this man is dead. Completely unneccessary loss of life. The officer should be held responsible for the over application of force and negligence. That being said; don't freaking resist arrest, and don't make officers feel threatened. If the gentleman had not been resisting at all, then he would have gotten in the vehicle, and been processed, and we would not even be aware of his name. This is all my opinion, based on my own observation of the footage. Still, I expect people will be upset by my views. That's fine, it's only one fella's opinions. My condolences to the family and friends.

  • Echidna

    Guy who kneeled on his neck was definitely racially motivated because I doubt he’s done that on any other person they’ve arrested

    Wait a second hold up the mayor said they want the officer that committed that tragic thing to that man to be prosecuted? There's literally a freaking police officer that pretty much told the truth on why all these cops are doing all this crap .it's because the mayor or the Governor or the higher up me in their Department told them to do something like that. Also told them to go against people's constitutional rights. That mayor might be trying to cover his or back. The police officer that told the truth he lost his job because of it. They even threatened him to take the video down from TR-my.

    From a simple arrest which can be done smoothly, to an endless protest/ riot the whole police force have to face. How stupid is it now

    All I see is four pieces of 💩💩💩💩 in uniform killing a man who was not putting any resistance or causing any harm therefore put them in a cell watching this video 24hrs a day and since they don't have no remorse they still wouldn't care 😠
