I’m 100% pro law enforcement but after watching this from several different angles, I can honestly say they murdered this man for no reason. Dude was in cuffs when they killed him.

These cops are just plain wrong.
Yeah he got the wrong end of the deal. Seen someone earlier say they believe he is alive and it's a political move to upset the blacks to sway the vote bidens way.

I know your right. I watched several. He was in handcuffs and not resisting when he fell.
Its been a long time since I watched something that made me feel this way.

Wonder when they will be arrested....

Sure it's hard to watch. But Murder is a hard word. I personally did not see any "intent" of the officer's actions which would warrant Murder. I'm sure the officer did not intentionally kill him, which would warrant a charge of Murder. Maybe Involuntary Manslaughter (unintentional), yes. But murder, No.
I do not agree with placing the knee on the neck to subdue, and hindsight is 20/20. The guy was cuffed, and "IF" he was still resisting (trying to get up), then maybe the knee on the head or shoulder area, but not the neck (carotid) area. Which would fall back on arrest/officer training.

He kept his knee on the guys neck for more than 7 minutes, the guy said he couldn’t breath and he definitely stopped resisting because he stopped breathing and that’s a by-product of being dead. there’s no excuse for what happened, none.

I applaud all Leo's and Military. Some decisions aren't the best ones made at the time. Easy to second guess, arm chair quarterback and say it's wrong. Which it might be. Who makes perfect decisions every time?

If the police chief had arrested the cops immediately and showed video of them being cuffed and stuffed it would've probably saved a lot of grief. That's not to say that any of the aftermath is justified, the looters are just thugs and opportunists. Sadly, but honestly, most departments don't police their own ranks very well. For those that would say it's manslaughter, if the roles were reversed and a citizen held an LEO in that position until he died, there would be no argument that they should be charged with murder.

The looters could give a rats ass about George Floyd. Giving half a chance, 99% of the looters would have robbed him and killed him. They’re just lowlife scum seizing an opportunity to steal and destroy. Scum. Just like the cops who killed this man.

The libtards will all say it’s all Trump’s fault.
Like said above, to sway the black vote to Biden.
Agree this guy was intentionally killed"....
That would also be called Murder.


On another note.
IMO
Protestors looting and destroying property should be dealt with deadly force.
First verbal warnings
Second ,non deadly force.
Third, Deadly force.

This would stop that crap.
