The young women who recorded the killing of George Floyd is a hero. I hope she has a good support system to help her emotionally process and work through the trauma of what she witnessed. 🙏💗
This is compelling honest journalism.

When somebody tells you that you cannot change the world, that a single person cannot change the world, refer them to this hero Darnella Frazier. Her video sparked a nationwide protest of historic significance.

thank you, Darnella. And thank your parents for raising such a true American.

All officers have to say is “he resisted arrest” or “he had a gun” or “he reached in his pocket” and it allows them to do whatever they want.

Can you imagine what would have happened if the witnesses tried to intervene and help George Floyd as he was dying on the ground being murdered by 4 cops. There'd be more dead people lying on the ground alongside George Floyd and they wouldn't be any of the cops..
Mary Thomas
Mary Thomas:
Imagine how traumatic for her and those who witnessed this murder first hand. God bless them all.
She is a hero, although I am sure she wishes she could have saved George's life.

Note to all you “patriot” protesters out there:
She didn’t need the latest weaponry.
She didn’t need a confederate flag
She didn’t need a noose, or nazi fan-boy posters.
She didn’t endanger the health of others.

She used the only tools she had—a camera and a spine. There’s a decent citizen for you. And a patriot. (No “ “ marks.)

Riots on the streets, police brutality to the extent of murder and the National Guard called out, but Trump had bigger things on his mind. His 'Twitter' account.
Dodgy Trump
Dodgy Trump:
How many cops committed such crimes and got away with it in the history of America? We may never know the truth.
Roselie Kane
Roselie Kane:
Sad -- or disgrace -- is when the kids start monitoring the police. That girl knew what to do in that moment because she was not shocked by witnessing what was going on. Her courage to stand up under duress is what stands out here. We as a society are in serious trouble and it starts at the very top. Not every police officer is a bully, a racist or a murderer but they will all be painted with the same brush. I hope not. My condolences to the family of George Floyd.

I think the age of technology has clearly exposed the extent of institutional racism against people of colour that would have, otherwise, never been seen.

Thank god finally someone talk sense.

Not those 'saints' condemning the protests without knowing the full story!

That girl is the real hero, and George Floyd deserve justice!
Darnella Fraizier is true American heroine.
Despite the tramma she stood firm and filmed a video that will shape her life and the nations future.
for now on they should make it a policy to review every arrest that is stated “resisting arrest,” i don’t care

Trump is by far the biggest coward in American history. And just like any coward, he has encouraged OTHERS to commit acts of vio.lence in his name at rallies and across the country. He has also encouraged Cops to commit acts of vio.lence against people within their custody.

"The subtle and deadly change of heart that might occur in you, would be involved with the realization that a civilization is not destroyed by wicked people; it is not necessary that people be wicked, but only that they be spineless.”

beautifully said, ty mr o'donnell. it feels like we are back in the 1950s and 1960s. if something doesn't change soon we will look like even pre-rev king...
Chauvin even taunted Floyd, telling him to get up. What a disgusting excuse for a man. And he was a cop.
Chris Zerkel
Chris Zerkel:
So sad. I weep with no shame. It's so, so uncalled for.

I view Trump as the Officer who had his knee on George Floyd's neck, and I view America as George Floyd, and I view Republicans on Capitol Hill like McConnell and Graham, as the other Officers who stood by and watched, and did nothing.

Chauvin is a reject, not fit to be a dog catcher, take that uniform off & he is a very sad weak little unit
Shame on those black Trump supporters who stood behind him at his rallies!

This was cold blooded murder caught on Camera and he still hasn't been charged with first degree murder. They're covering up, they don't blame other murders on pre existing conditions.

It’s not often that you get footage of a criminal as he’s actually committing a murder, but thank got this young woman was able to capture this violent offender in the midst of him deliberately killing a completely non-violent, non-threatening vulnerable victim, George Floyd, who repeatedly pleaded for his life. If _only_ somebody had called the police to come & stop this murderous attack, & hopefully save the victim’s life! If there had been a police officer on scene who witnessed this homicide taking place & could have interrupted it & arrested the piece of sh*t, & rendered _immediate_ emergency aid to the victim...oh, hang on, there was! *Three* other cops were _also_ there, witnessing this crime taking place, & yet they did _absolutely_ *_nothing_* to stop a psychopath from murdering his unarmed, incapacitated handcuffed black victim *in broad daylight!* *_WTF?!!_*
Cops doing that is what Trumpeteers think when they say MAGA.

Even with Darnella's video

The police report, district attorney's description of the charges and the coroner report attempt to deny what everyone eyes see...

This was premeditated murder in the first degree...

The legal system is creating a narrative that it was an accidental death..

This is why there are cities burning and property damage national wide.. P

Just think of how many times this has happened before cameras we’re everywhere where cops made up stories to justify killing a “suspect.” How many thousands of people died from police brutality that we will never know about.

"Oh no honey, Daddy was really trying to raise up his knee".

Would most likely be the explanation.

What about the officers' bodycam videos? When will those be released?

Gary Stasiuk
Gary Stasiuk:
The green light for this kind of sanctioned and pervasive, “we have your back” protection of police being aggressive to members of the public during any kind of interaction, has been laid bare since Trump was elected. While this attitude seems to have always been there as an undercurrent, it now seem overt and condoned. It may never be rooted out and removed from society but it really needs to be cut out and obliterated from the police. Or they can never be trusted. Trump has stoked their growth. He is very much to blame for how blatantly it is perpetrated.

I was wondering earlier today, if you as a private citizen, would have intervened physically by pulling the cop off Mr Floyd, what would have happened to you? Obviously arrested, maybe tazed or shot. But if you were doing that to prevent a murder, what then? 🤔
