    I’m so tired of this s@*t! This is an example of why I tell African Americans that it’s not just them. This happens all the time. Imagine the ones we don’t know about. These pigs 🐽 should be locked up.

    i just wonder how long after he died did they keep using their sadistic "restraint" on him? his hands cuffed behind his back, forcing him to stay face down on the floor…for how long after they killed him? i think the cops were really mad that he wouldn't sit in the restraint chair and be totally immobilized so they could instead beat him to death.

    You can NOT cuff a human's arms behind them and lay them down. It's hard to breathe. Lay on them and then that is a suffocation.

    Fire bad cops, and fire good cops that don't report bad-cop behavior.

    That Floyd matter is known throughout the world there's no one in law enforcement that is unaware of that situation any officer that even comes close to that situation is foolish and should be removed from the police force

    It's jail not yoga. People who end up in jail often are not just calm and collected, they are in distress and the only way police seem to handle these people is with brutal force and no compassion.

    They should, they could have.

    That guy who wrote that book. He wrote a book on how to do things but never puts on a uniform and does them himself. Same as journalists. All they do is talk.

    America is full of this commentators and analysts culture. We are surrounded by geniuses but when it comes down to getting the dirty job done, they're never there.

    The real question here is why US Citizens consume so many drugs and who mades them readily available for them.

    If you're going to do dangerous drugs and drink alcohol stay at home until the effects ware off, this way you won't wind up in jail!

  • mckcpaul1

    Did he have meth in his system before he was arrested and put in jail, or did he get the meth in jail, if he did it before he was arrested or while he was in jail, why would anyone have any sympathy for this guy?
