I can't stop thinking of the   repercussions of these  riots

 "Activists staged another round of protests on Saturday in at least a dozen major U.S. cities coast to coast, including Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Atlanta, New York and Atlanta".

You can kiss the hard work of Americans efforts in stopping the spread of covid, goodbye. Whats gonna happen to the brick and mortar, ma and pa and retail stores in these cities not to mention the spread by ruthless mobs

I want to see Marshall law imposed,now!

 

 

 

 

If these cops are acquitted I believe the worst is yet to come, making the recent events look like a barn dance. The propensity to turn into a major meltdown is quite high. Not good.

We can only wonder what your response would have been if these were people protesting the lockdown.

You would not have been criticising them for weakening the efforts to stop Covid. You would have been cheering them on as true patriots.

I see your limited thinking. White people protest is good. Black people protest is bad.

Sorry I won't allow you to bait me,nice try

Two of these cops had a record of abuse . The other two so far haven't as reported! All 4 should be treated the same as the  knee man ,a sick guy who was a serial abuser!

    Perhaps English is not your native language and you didn't grasp my use of sarcasm with my comment on excessive force being used.  (When am I ever going to learn to not use sarcasm because someone will always be along to make a comment similar to yours.)   Of course I don't think this is a 'normal event'.  Good heavens, get real.  I'm grappling, as many, many others are, with how an arrest for a rather minor offense would result in the unnecessary, harsh death of the suspect.  I realize the police have a difficult job and I always try to give them the benefit of the doubt but really, in this case, there is really no excuse and no doubt.  

English is my native language. And this event too shall pass. Especially if you can turn CNN off.

Think back to the pre-dawn FBI SWAT team (32 strong) raid on poor ole Roger Stone for a simple process lying to feds crime.

 

Lol. But seriously, Mpls cops will play nice if you cooperate during an arrest but if you present certain behaviors that are uncooperative with an arrest process, all things considered, they will come on strong with force. They don't mess about, in the "cities", (Mpls/St Paul). Unfortunately this cop Chauvin was WAY overboard and 3 other "bros" ignored the pleas of G Floyd and a routine (or not so routine in this case) fraud take down turned deadly.

Yes this case OTT. But their are still a lot of snowflakes who think cops should pussy foot and never be harsh with any criminals ever. That’s just complete BS.

Secondly, the guy that died had recreational drugs in his system according to the coroner's autopsy ... so lots of bets are off here, especially if he had underlying conditions to boot too.

By recreational, I think you mean alcohol. The deli clerk who reported the fake bill said he appeared drunk.

 

Regardless, I don't get why this is being used as an excuse for the charges against the cop. Yes, you are responsible if you act against someone not taking into consideration their state, resulting in more harm to them or death.

 

If this was an assault on an old white lady resulting in her death by heart attack, I'm sure these same people would be screaming for the perp to immediately be hanged.

Something fishy is going on here.  Look at the video, then look at the cops mug shot.  Not the same person.

Kinda a different thing an assault on an old lady and needing to use some physical force to arrest a criminal putting up resistance isn't it?  Not really a good comparison.  I have underlying issues.  Type 2 and overweight plus survivor of sepsis which has long term impact on my health.  If I were to commit a crime and resist arrest good chance that level of effort could cause my death.  

 

And for the record I'd have the same attitude for the criminals that assault an old lady despite the poor analogy.  Trial and evidence.  Let's see them then make a decision.  

 

And last for the record the video of the cop kneeling on Floyds neck is not a good look.  Doesn't seem like you need to sit on the guy after he is cuffed and down.  Without seriously good evidence showing why it was necessary I'm voting guilty on depraved indifference by the cop at minimum.  But I'd still await the trial and evidence.
