  1. prosecution looks stupid right now…they got rekt!

  2. Guys Ya know the amount of Love Jesus has for you is Unimaginable So just accept him as your Lord and Savior so we will a meet him in heaven.

    Like so more people can see this :^D

  3. I've read a lot of comments about how Floyd was a dirt bag and now is off the streets. Did the cops ever ID Floyd and know who he was and see his past record? I dont recall this happening. I think the first two cops showed up to cup foods and had the manager point him out then the struggle ensued. When Chauvin showed up he instantly jumped in the mix. I dont even recall any questions being asked of the store clerks or manager prior to engagement with Floyd.

  5. The whole i cant breath narrative has been totally debunked. Christ he said it multiple times in the back of squad car, “ i cant breath put me on the floor” . He was suffering an overdose. The officer is guilty of not recognising this, but not murder 2nd degree.

  6. maybe the whole department should be sued for this horrible policy then. Besides, I don't know about anyone else but I clearly remember seeing the officers knee across this mans neck as he smiled for the camera. So EFF your dang stills! P.S. : I am not in the US and I am white.

  7. Corrupt cops, court, system. No justice no peace. If justice isn't given, take it by force! Burn it all!

  8. Why don't you show it all? People need to go and watch the whole video. It is very sad that this man died, but if he would have listened to the police like the other people in the car he would be alive just like them. This is a big man putting up a lot of resistance. The officers restrained him, all he had to do was call down and listen. The officers did a great job of trying to give him the benefit of the calming down. But bottom line George resisted. Very sad that the media only shows these snipits of footage and not the truth. Why don't you show George fighting, when all he had to do was listen!

  9. This is not factual evidence! “Does it appear to be?” The defense says, “this is a little hard to see.” I also do not think this witness would say hold body weight, on the neck! The on the neck is nothing any reasonable person or reasonable officer.

  10. Chauvin has a very good lawyer.

  11. Where is mr Floyd’s attorney & why didn’t he object to leading the witness ?
    This attorney made sure to take his time & go real slow – over & over to hypnotize the witness’s at this trail
    I feel like I’m watching a magic act at Vegas ..

  12. Watch Lane's bodycam for yourself and you'll see exactly what the defense is doing. They only pulled frames from after Chauvin shifted the position of his knee to allow the EMT to take Floyd's pulse. The knee WAS on Floyd's neck until then.

  13. If hewas trained!! he would have never did that foolish move.look at him now he's got to pay the penalty for it killing George Floyd..

  14. The photo also shows Floyd had no head.

  15. Lol since this is ABC News any comment disagreeing with the narrative gets deleted.

  16. God will make sure to get these ppl for even coming here to make it seems as if this was not a crime.. like this was not hate and murder caught on tape we get to see just how ppl have killed so many ppl and they know they can get away with it this is bogus and it will be hell to pay

  17. cherrypicking the frames on deceiveing angles, ohh well, defense attorney all right

  18. Hes innocent. I knew it the whole time!

  19. Smmfh•Is This Defense Attorney Serious??!!…

  20. What a lame defense. Wow. Murder on camera and they still acting as if it wasn't.
