He had 18 excessive force complaints against him on his record, and he still was working as a Police officer. He had been doing this for years with NO REAL CONSEQUENCE.

You know the sad thing about this is that it took a lot of media attention for this case to be actually resolved in a sense of justice. Just imagine all the other police brutality cases that killed more people that never got as much media attention out there.

it’s blatantly sad people are still defending the cop saying he did nothing wrong

hopefully the inmates know who he is
This dude was a ticking time bomb, he had 18 excessive force complaints against him. He deserves jail

If he's used to using excessive force his day was coming anyway, but I'm saddened by this there's two families forever affected by all that has transpired George lost his life and this man will just lose sleep.

What he did has no justification at all, that son, that brother that father he took from this earth made mistakes in his life but nothing that justifies his life being taken!! I don’t think he’s going to be alive for long but thats the price he set on him self when he took Georges life!! I also think the law-enforcement he worked under really needs to take some Accountability as well for allowing offices like this to get away with so much to the point they become a danger to Society, they played a huge roll when they let this man keep working after so many complaints against him that in the end lead to this!!! I don’t see his fellow offices standing by him now, The irony!!!

This should send shock waves through police departments your not above the law you will be prosecuted for any criminal act’s. We the people have to continue policing the police until we feel safe .

I think it’s just for the media , he’s way too calm for this huge situation
The Video alone was enough to find him Guilty on all Counts. The look in his eyes was no remorse and cockiness as if what he was doing wouldn’t have Consequences. Now George Floyd is dead and Derek’s life is Ruined and he will spend at least the next 15 to 20 years in Jail for his Actions. Justice is Served.

No emotional sympathy or remorse, WHATS SO EVER!!

Indisputable proof that; That Soulless Murderer/Ex-Police Officer has no solace or commiseration for his actions.

His mannerism is a tall tale
Sign of a TRUE KILLER.

The jury decision was heavily pressured by what would of happened if they found him not guilty. The protests alone would of been 100X more last year. Even Biden, Vp and Obama all took an interest in the case. I’m not saying he should of been acquitted, it’s just obvious that there was only one option for the jurors
Thomas Honeycutt
Thomas Honeycutt:
I'm so glad Justice was served! If he didn't get a guilty verdict then there would have been so many riots so much damage to the city
I think this will hopefully be the first step in correcting this awful awful mess. It won’t be overnight. But this was the first step that we needed.

I never had the pleasure to know you but I did see the video that shook me to my core. I grew up in privilege with a nice home and didn’t struggle. White and blonde. It’s sad that it had to come to this to wake up most of society. Rest In Peace sir. As his daughter said “my daddy changed the world”

Well, there was a picture of him so arrogantly kneeing on the victim's neck as he lay dying as if he had gone for a safari and had just begged a trophy and posing for posterity. Now he looks scared, frightened and dejected. Serves him right.
Not only knowing he'll be going behind bars is an amazing feeling. Seeing the celebrations and joy in people is just beautiful. Justice has not been served, but a good step in the progress of healing and progressing has been made.
