    I wonder how many seniors in New York and New Jersey nursing homes said “I can’t breathe” when the Governors of those states put contaminated virus patients in with them?

    People protesting is one thing. What the Hell are they doing ? Making it worse by adding more fuel to the fire !

    I’m not living in the US so I may have not seen the whole picture. I’m just a bit confused of what the protesters are asking for? The policeman has been taken in custody and charged. Why they can’t wait for the justice after the trial?

      Minneapolis police departments policy handbook allows knee neck holds if officers receive advanced training.

      Floyd’s neck and head are seen lifting multiple times during the hold. The officer has very little weight on it.

      Floyd was complaining of breathing difficulty while standing and collapsed.
      This means “I can’t breath” is not the result of the knee.

      The autopsy showed no signs of suffocation or bruising to the neck.
      Floyd died of heart attack.

      Floyd has a history of cocaine use and coronary heart disease.

      When these two circumstances are mixed with elevated stress, such as an arrest, cardiac events are possible.

      The officer did everything textbook according to his departments manual.
      He did not kill Floyd.

      They don’t want to wait because in light of evidence, they will look foolish. Most these protestors likely believe the earth is flat as well

      @JHeints – stfu

      Peace Freedom

      Feel welcome to add to the evidence. Not everyone is following the entire story.

    • Canary InTheMachine says:

      @JHeints – HA! Even if the police manual DID have a policy of leaning on a handcuffed man’s neck 3 minutes after he is unconscious, THEN that would be evidence of a terrible problem RIGHT THERE.

    • Peace Freedom says:

      @JHeints – Explain why you would need 3 officers on top of George Floyd when he’s already handcuffed on his stomach & no longer a threat. People like you are what’s wrong in this world.

    • TheHOruS55 says:

      @lil caddie “Someones got murdered” Like cmon how many black and white peaople are murdered every day in america? Yall just wanted a reason to this nonsense chaos and you got, now you feel like you can do whatever you want. Pathetic.

    • DDdastard06 says:

      It’s pure boiling rage and resentment. The fact that so many people don’t understand that is telling. These riots are predicated on more than just this one instance of police murder, it’s decades of failed government policy and injustices. The looting and destruction of property is the rage of a society left behind. If you think that’s bad you should read about the French Revolution. Be thankful people’s heads aren’t being carried around on pikes yet.

    • Waseem Amin says:

      I dont know what your watching. but most people are not looting and robbing
      the person that thinks this is the one that is the true moron here

    • Albert Loto says:

      because they want to be heard in that way so that the government can do some negotiation

    • Michael Voigt says:

      @Adriana Jimenez Your f*cking trash. You seriously think looting helps? This is just going to increase the hate toward black people.

    I’m sorry but wasn’t George Floyd like 60 years old? How’s that a kid? I respect the cause of it all, but this just makes them look super ignorant to what happened, like all they saw was an African American was murdered, and immediately just grabbed their riot gear and hit the streets.

    • Eric says:

      … he was 46… However, age should not have anything to do with this, it just seems you don’t know much about this or just won’t do any research. I’m not saying looting is good or the answer but, Martin Luther King Jr said: “A riot is the language of the unheard…Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention…Riots do not develop out of thin air”
      he also says: “I would say that every summer we are going to have this kind of vigorous protest. My hope is that it will be non-violent, I hope that we can avoid riots because riots are self-defeating”. So maybe stop looking at the people and look at what is killing them.

    Today I’n LA it looked like the purge was real

  16. Doris White says:

    Linda Sarsour is calling the riots a “revolution”. Wow! That’s a flip.

  17. Bong Arisgado says:

    Protesting ? No it’s more on looting and evil ways.

  18. damn Human says:
