What if what if... things would have gone down differently had he pulled a hand gun and fired a few shots in the air... yet a protester could have executed him at gun point. This is Floyd’s décision to take a risk vs. the protesters who decided to take a risk as well. Nuff said Awful. Lol. Look at the absolute clip of sky news race baiting. Show the clip of the white unhinged guy with a bow. Don't show the dozens of feeds with blacks stamping on white shop keepers, truch drivers.... Pedestrians etc etc

It’s almost like they are protesting against excessive force. Very 'intelligent' guy! I’m disgusted at these animals. Do they honestly think this rioting is helping ? Selfish, selfish people who use a mans death to steal, vandalise and loot local businesses😡😡😡 Just look at them 👀 Animals the lot of them 😡😡😡

Like wild animals. 😡😡😡 Shouldn't they be taking his attackers into custody. You going to report on this terrorist act of attempted mass murder in Mississippi where a truck driver drove his fuel tanker into a crowd of thousands protesting police violence? RememberGeorgeFloyd Bows and arrows, knives and bats are not good weapons to defend oneself or business. There is ONLY one weapon that would scare off those anarchists & antifa terrorists! That MAN was probably a business owner trying to defend his business. Something THE FAKE NEWS is good at hidng

Pointing an arrow at people is bad, but you could easily say ‘why the people smashing his car’ Is that a Ramsay suporter? GOT teally left a lot on fans! Well bet he's sorry he took out his bow if he wasn't being attacked anyway thinking he stop the looting like some gov Rambo, 1 bolt per 15 secs ain't gonna help anyway unless u count on the crowd being extremely shocked by the bolt sticking out of someone's chest. Don't b a hero.

This is the real America where youths are just a utter piece of garbage. Watch this vid. Poor women.😡😡😡😡 Search Fox 13 and you’ll see an interview he gave them before this video came up, he told them he was attacked two black men whilst he was in his car, they had to perform mea culpa and pin the tweet. He went there for trouble and many are trying to pin on antifa and BLM.

Some stats :since 2017 till 2020 so far in USA number of black people killed by cops so far is 710 killed number of whites killed in same period is 1268 this will get out of hand Terrorists 👇👇👇 Robbin hood In a country desperate for Cupid to spread some love right now....this guy is doing it all wrong 💔

answr2evrything When anger is suppressed deep into the unconscious, contaminated by unresolved pain, it becomes problematic. Stop the violence and start he healing RIP George Floyd Leftist Mayors don't like their voting Thugs threatened Not a very clever thing to do, a semi automatic rifle would have been a better weapon of choice.

Yep mob mentality, won’t solve a thing antifa thugs at work too America has turned into the purge The only thing that will stop a bad guy a with bow and arrow is a group of good guys with their fists. 🤛 Amazing...they are just like animals !
