George Floyd RIP
 
I don't know how much more evidence is required but this looks like murder to me. Four Minneapolis police officers have already been fired. Crucial that this is investigated and not brushed away

Worse than the Eric Garner incident a few years ago in my opinion

BERT'S HEAD 27-05-2020 08:52 PM

disgusting and shameful.

Indeed, I must confess I was taken aback. You hear and see bad things about American cops, but why the heck did the main cop perp keep his knee on the guy's throat until he died?? It is beyond anything I have seen before

Even if he had resisted arrest there were enough of them to subdue him in other ways. That main cop looked sadistic.

I saw on the news that the policeman had only been fired!
Should have been arrested and charged with murder and banged up for good
America still has big problems

American rozzers in being thick racist wankers shocker

Harry Holmesdale 27-05-2020 10:30 PM

Knee on neck til unconscious, keep it there whilst medic takes pulse 10 mins later... thats new levels of barbarism from US police.. sacked quite quickly is an improvement... surely murder investigation follows?

Absolutely disgusting behaviour, he wasn’t even talking for the last 4 minutes of that video.

If those police aren’t all locked up for a long time including the one who refused to even acknowledge what was being said by innocent bystanders would be a crying shame.

Unfortunately we know what that country is like.

RIP :(

Was the protest about this the one that was tear gassed? And recently white protesters armed with assault rifles were allowed to do what they wanted?

America is ****ed.

awful

In some ways it is good that the video is online, but in other ways it seems wrong. You are watching a man's life just slowly drift away.

It really makes you wonder how many deaths the US Police got away with before everyone had a video recorder in their pocket.

A Wooden Fish On Wheels 28-05-2020 11:39 AM

Completely sickening. To hear a poor man begging for help, begging for his life while being executed in broad daylight by a Policeman is not something that you expect anywhere, let alone the self-styled leader of the free world.

No wonder they are rioting. They need to arrest all the Police that were there for murder and do it bloody quickly.

To be fair the Mayor came across well - I don't know if they were stage tears but he seemed genuinely cut up and shamed by it.

Crazy crazy shit. What has that c*** Trump had to say about it? Too busy tweeting about how he is going to shut down twitter I suppose. Wanker.

ExiledStirling 28-05-2020 11:56 AM

The policeman should not only charged with murder but also convicted for it.

RIP.

I am assuming police are taught restraining techniques and I would be amazed if it including applying pressure to the neck. In the unlikely event it does, I would guess only for the purposes of self defence and for only a very brief period of time measured in seconds not minutes.

They are getting away with them even with video evidence :(

Here are some examples in the last year;

Horrible...

Kipungu 28-05-2020 12:49 PM

The senior policeman claiming he was resisting arrest should be fired and charged too.

CP-RJW 28-05-2020 03:24 PM

Absolute disgrace, RIP.

Black Americans are getting tired of this crap. As well as becoming more and more politically divided, the US’s racial divides seem to be only growing. Makes you wonder when the boiling point will be where there may be essentially a second coming of the 60s.

cpfc4evandeva 28-05-2020 04:01 PM

At what point will the tanned one say something dumb about it?
