Several hundred people marched in Minneapolis to protest the death of an unarmed black man in police custody. After some protesters became unruly, they were confronted by police in riot gear who fired tear gas.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Four Minneapolis officers involved in the arrest of a black man who died in police custody were fired Tuesday, hours after a bystander’s video showed an officer kneeling on the...
Several witnesses had gathered on a nearby sidewalk, some recording the scene on their phones. The bystanders become increasingly agitated. One man yells repeatedly. “He’s not responsive right now!” Two witnesses, including one woman who said she was a Minneapolis firefighter, yell at the officers to check the man’s pulse. “Check his pulse right now and tell me what it is!” she said.
At one point, an officer says: “Don’t do drugs, guys.” And one man yells, “Don’t do drugs, bro? What is that? What do you think this is?”The Hennepin County medical examiner identified Floyd but said the cause of death was pending.Floyd had worked security for five years at a restaurant called Conga Latin Bistro and rented a home from the restaurant owner, Jovanni Thunstrom.
He was “a good friend, person and a good tenant,” the restaurateur told the Star Tribune. “He was family. His co-workers and friends loved him.”Ben Crump, a prominent civil rights and personal injury attorney, said he had been hired by Floyd’s family.
“We all watched the horrific death of George Floyd on video as witnesses begged the police officer to take him into the police car and get off his neck,” Crump said in a statement. “This abusive, excessive and inhumane use of force cost the life of a man who was being detained by the police for questioning about a non-violent charge.”
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said the department would conduct a full internal investigation. Police did not identify the officers, but attorney Tom Kelly confirmed he is representing Derek Chauvin, the officer seen with his knee on Floyd’s neck. Kelly declined to comment further.
Police did not immediately respond to a request for Chauvin’s service record. News accounts show he was one of six officers who fired their weapons in the 2006 death of Wayne Reyes, whom police said pointed a sawed-off shotgun at officers after stabbing two people. Chauvin also shot and wounded a man in 2008 in a struggle after Chauvin and his partner responded to a reported domestic assault.
Several hundred protesters gathered Tuesday evening in the street where Floyd died, chanting and carrying banners that read, “I can’t breathe” and “Jail killer KKKops.” They eventually marched about 2 1/2 miles to a city police precinct, with some protesters damaging windows, a squad car and spraying graffiti on the building. A line of police in riot gear eventually confronted the protesters, firing tear gas.
Experts on police use of force told The Associated Press that the officer clearly restrained the man too long. They noted the man was under control and no longer fighting. Andrew Scott, a former Boca Raton, Florida, police chief who now testifies as an expert witness in use-of-force cases, called Floyd’s death “a combination of not being trained properly or disregarding their training.”
“He couldn’t move. He was telling them he couldn’t breathe, and they ignored him,” Scott said. “I can’t even describe it. It was difficult to watch.”The New York City officer in the Garner case said he was using a legal maneuver called “the seatbelt” to bring down Garner, whom police said had been resisting arrest. But the medical examiner referred to it as a chokehold in the autopsy report and said it contributed to his death. Chokehold maneuvers are banned under New York police policy.
A grand jury later decided against indicting the officers involved in Garner’s death, sparking protests around the country. The New York Police Department ultimately fired the officer who restrained Garner, but it was five years later, after a federal investigation, a city prosecutor’s investigation and an internal misconduct trial.
In Minneapolis, kneeling on a suspect’s neck is allowed under the department’s use-of-force policy for officers who have received training in how to compress a neck without applying direct pressure to the airway. It is considered a “non-deadly force option,” according to the department’s policy handbook.
A chokehold is considered a deadly force option and involves someone obstructing the airway. According to the department’s use-of-force policy, officers are to use only an amount of force necessary that would be objectively reasonable.Before the officers were fired, the police union asked the public to wait for the investigation to take its course and not to “rush to judgment and immediately condemn our officers.” Messages left with the union after the firings were not returned.
The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, which would handle any prosecution of police on state criminal charges, said in a statement that it was “shocked and saddened” by the video and pledged to handle the case fairly. The FBI is investigating whether the officers willfully deprived Floyd of his rights. If those federal civil rights charges are brought, they would be handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota, which declined comment.
The death came amid outrage over the death ofAhmaud Arbery, who was fatally shot Feb. 23 in Georgia after a white father and son pursued the 25-year-old black man they had spotted running in their subdivision. More than two months passed before charges were brought. Crump also represents Arbery’s father.

Murder AP. It was murder. Enough of this shit. So, next time we have to protest in white face with semiautomatic rifles at hand, to be called a 'peaceful protest' and have cops giving us the high-five instead of rubber bullets in the face. Got it. Nice job, white af AP. Unruly? You mean they didn't look like this?
I think the police were unruly first Several hundred people marched in Minneapolis to protest the murder of a citizen by police. Police escalated the situation by retaliating with poison gas. US police use banned chemical weapons to suppress citizens protesting murder under color of authority, you meant to say.
'Unruly' after cops murdered him? Get in the fucking bin. Compared to the unruly white mask protesters? How about that? WeAreDoneDying BlackLivesMatter GeorgeFloyd Uh we saw the video dawg, the police attacked people first Bootlicker copagandq Several hundred people marched in Michigan - many armed to the teeth with assault rifles - to protest not being able to get a haircut. After some protesters stormed the capital building, they were confronted by police who stood there doing nothing. I fixed your tweet.
Hey, quick question, what adjective did you use when armed white goons showed up in state capitols to terrorize legislators bc they wanted a haircut? You beteer reword this tweet or DELETE it. Unruly is what occurred in Michigan with those armed with rifles and guns but NO masks. 'the death of an unarmed black man in police custody.' That's a funny way to describe an officer kneeling on his neck until he stopped breathing. He didn't just randomly happen to die of natural causes.
this sucks 'unruly'. Bullshit. Unruly? After the broad daylight gang murder of a citizen by armed state agents? Can't have that! AP 👉Associated Propaganda Thanks for not saying 'protest turned violent' like other news agencies, I guess? Points for trying? No. Still horrible spin giving an out to the MPD who were responsible for the turn to violence.
I think you mean 'yet another murder of an unarmed black man'. TRASH tweet . - the people who stormed the state capital with guns were unruly. AP Journalists Are Bootlickers Yes the police were unruly when they killed him JFC, do better, AP! They were protesting a MURDER. And the jury’s definitely out on whether the cops had justifiable reason to fire tear gas on demonstrators—particularly during a respiratory-virus pandemic that requires masks for mitigation.
****important omission**** according to observers at the event, no violence or property damage occurred until police fired some kind of projectile Shame on you associated press See YOU are the problem. Folks protest peacefully for a black man that was MURDERED and you try to make them out as thugs WHITE FOLKS go to that same location with guns, and you don't even try to label them as 'unruly'.
After some cops became unruly, you mean. Imagine what would happen if an AP reporter accidentally used AP's 'Style Guide to Covering Black People' to write up a white political protest. ap wtf... 'the death'? that tweet needs a clear subject and verb and direct/indirect object. 'unruly'? protests are by definition uncomfortable. try something along the lines of: 'white police officers killed a black man and people responded in protest by xyz'.
Bullshit reporting. Turn in your press pass. Why are white people there? And didn't liberals say prayers did nothing? Fix this racist, biased, hypocritical headline and say his name, GeorgeFloyd. Who wrote this article? sofiesucks HIS NAME IS GEORGE FLOYD !!! HE HAS A NAME JusticeForGeorgeFloyd 'As they became unruly'?!?!?!? WHAT KIND OF RACIST SHIT IS THIS. What did you say about the white nazis that invaded State Capitals while armed with assault rifles? The AP is a reprehensible fascist propaganda site, absolutely nothing more. APNoCredibility
You're pathetic! Really bad at this. JusticeForGeorgeFloyd WhiteSupremacy Unruly? Seriously? DO BETTER! Guys with ar-15 rifles yelling in the faces of the capitol police were “unruly”. These protesters were justifiably angry, yet, marching peacefully through the street. GeorgeFloyd This is a trashy ass headline. I see you AP!
Unruly my ass! Where TF was this with the long beards who carried guns and mf ROCKET LAUNCHERS to the GD statehouse to protest not being able to get haircuts over the last few weeks? Unruly? This is a TRASH post! You Are Complicit. Unruly? I guess if they had brought their assault rifles and were dressed in their tactical gear they would have been ruly.
We’re they armed with AR 15’s, yelling in officers faces? Biased much? “Death of an unarmed black man” is passive. He was MURDERED. There is a video showing it. “Unruly” protesters? No, the police are unruly and totally out of control. Do we have to play these word games every time? GTFOH with that 'unruly' bullshit in this headline. Do Better . .
UNLIKE the white protesters in Michigan and elsewhere? Jesus, Fox this headline and reflect. This is a ridiculous take. Kind of 'unruly' for a white cop to kill an innocent black man for no other reason than because he just wanted to, isn't it AP? Minneapolis Police murderers. Stop killing African Americans in the US
Gfy Who is the idiot who wrote this? and yet in Michigan rigth-wing nuts invade the State House and are treated like guests.....America, something has gone wrong with you!!! Stop killing black americans raciest What a sad day this is. It is a sad day for ALL people. MinneapolisPoliceMurderdHim fuck the press I hope they gas you with us
Do better, AP. Good first step. Now let‘s see some arrests. rot in hell Great reporting lol. 🤦🏼♂️ Protesters were justified in their anger Marched in protest after police brutally murdered unarmed black man in the street. Unruly? So if they carried AR and spit in cops faces it would be ok? Are you serious? Please show me the riot gear headlines from when those white terrorists stormed the capital in Michigan.
You are part of the problem AP. '...to protest the murder of a black man by police' Fixed it for you! Man fuck the Associated Press. Using that Goebbels propaganda handbook I see. Wtf Jacob_Frey ? You spelled black wrong. Hundreds? I saw thousands Whew...that's a dog whistle if I ever heard one...'unruly', eh?
ACAB And yet bringing guns in protest to a capital building is just fine. Fuck them. Did you let the cops write this or just copy edit it? Unruly? FU, now do these guys... of course they weren't protesting a murder, just not being able to get haircuts.. Several hundred? you are contributing to the imbalance of rights in America, and supporting a system that is purposefully killing black people. Do better.
ooooo did they get unruly And for the record, those 4 police officers should be in jail without parole. They are a danger to society. Full stop. Unruly Several hundred peaceful protesters marched to protest the murder of unarmed Black man, GeorgeFloyd, by Minneapolis Police. The peaceful protesters were confronted by police in riot gear who fired tear gas. Fixed it for you. BlackLivesMatter
'Unruly' - refusing to be ruled. Would storming a government office with automatic weapons, threatening the lives of lawmakers & shutting down legislative session qualify as 'unruly?' Perhaps there's some confusion as to who it is that's doing the ruling? The Chief of Police needs to step down, along with all the people who allowed these killers with a badge to exist on the force. This was not all first time incident.
'unruly'? what the fuck? Unruly?!? I'd say the cops murdering a Black man in broad daylight was pretty fucking 'unruly' ''Unruly'' like the 'protesters' who took guns and shit into the capitol building, yeah? Armed white men - with automatic weapons - stormed the MI state capitol to violently intimidate elected representatives. No tear gas.
... the ap is a tool for white nationalism\\supremacy... Really ? Unruly?! What was your heading when the white supremacist had guns at the capitol building?! You’re part of the problem too Perhaps they should strap on AR-15’s and storm the state capital with American flags flying proudly. So where were the rubber bullets/water cannons for the 'unruly' cops murdering GeorgeFloyd?
Why does media coverage refuse to acknowledge this asa murder? He was murdered by police officers. Go to shaunking s page look up the Minneapolis mayors phone number and murder dial it to demand justice. This won’t stop unless an example is made. Why didn’t they fire tear gas at all the white people carrying guns to the courthouse and screaming in people’s faces?
Pathetic, Armed white protesters were literally shoving cops and surrounding them in mobs with zero physical police response. Looks Kent State like C'mon MinneapolisPD Not unruly! America, you have problems. of course there wouldn’t have been police violence if some of the protesters hadnt gotten a lil rowdyy
“unruly” Why aren't the gun-toting haircut crowds described as 'unruly'? Especially when they're hanging effigies of elected officials, and spitting in the faces of the police officers? Why aren't they tear gassed when they're literally assaulting police?🤔 In case anyone’s wondering, this is how the covered Michigan which featured armed protesters: Perhaps if the Minnesota protestors “scuffled” more, they wouldn’t get shot w/rubber bullets 🤔 smh
How many young black men murdered in Chicago this year and each year Black people protesting a police officer murdering a man get tear gas, heavily white people threatening people, storming government buildings and threatening politicians because bars are closed get AP needs to hire this guy to write headlines. This is far more accurate.
No social distancing. Look for deaths weeks from now. riots I'm disappointed Do Better Were the protesters armed, breaking the law, violent, rioting, intentionally intimidating, were they in military garb, or threatening a Govt official or the police, did they harass first responders, etc? Be specific, and please use comparison.
Here is what is letting everyone know. If you are a white karen w/ an m4 you can scream in a cops face with your plague and thats fine. But a black person holding a sign.. Thats unruly. Unruly? Were they carrying assault rifles and storming state capitols? Jesus, what the hell is wrong with mainstream journalism?
By unruly you mean people protested cops murdering a black man. Fix your racist headline. How do you manage to defend police brutality on protesters in a headline? Unruly like they were kneeling on people’s throats, or unruly like they were all packing long rifles marching on government buildings? Work on identifying proportional response.
And yet white men with automatic weapons holding a state capital hostage have no consequences. yall suck Unruly Were they carrying assault rifles or just not white? If they weren't storming a legislature with AK's, well, NOT THAT FUCKING 'UNRULY.' Neo-Naziism is alive and thriving in Minneapolis. Please change the wording of this tweet. The police murdered a man and you slander the protesters who are speaking out? Shameful propaganda.
Unruly? Get real. I remember when armed terrorists stormed the Michigan capital and everyone was like, meh. They didn't get unruly though even...as opposed to motherfuckers like in Raleigh NC walking around with...a rocket launcher, etc. You would side with the concentration camp guards. holding strong the racism as always when the Karens, the Chads and racist cops momentarily leave the kitchen when the heat is too much. 'Unruly' 😡😡 A man was murdered!!
His name is George Floyd and he was murdered. Compare that with the unruly White people protesting in Michigan, yelling at the police and carrying their guns😳 Too bad the black community doesnt protest like this when its a black on black shooting Guess they would be protesting everyday !!!! If that was my family member that cop had better be in hiding. StreetJustice PayBack EyeFoeAnEye Vigilante TakeOut WalkingDead USA 🇺🇸
Wow... Pretty racist headline ya got there AP Weird way to spell murder Nothing (much) to do with black lives but all to do with uncontroled (political) power, it creates monsters! mineapolis CorruptionKills Were the cops unruly when they murdered him, you spineless willing collaborators? Disgusting. Imagine viewing this as unruly the same week white folks in Kentucky hang an effigy of their governor.
Unruly like the gun toting white militia assholes that protested in Michigan without police interference? Or unruly unarmed African Americans protesting another unjust murder by police who needed to be broken up because they were black? aaronlmorrison Unruly? Terrible headline The media's insistence upon using passive voice when talking about the institutionalized racism in this country is one of the biggest things that legitimizes it. A man did not 'die' in police custody. A man was killed by police. Grow a spine.
They need to be sent to prison for a hate crime. This has to stop!! How unruly did they get? Did they kneel on someone's neck until he died? I just watched part of a video of what they did to George I could not watch the rest I'm sitting here in tears that poor man, I read he asked for his mum ❣️ Heartbreaking, why do police think it's ok to kneel on someone's head. My 💕 goes out to his family. 🙏 From Scotland 🏴
So when did the become a racist rag. Did the police issue an order to disperse before firing tear gas? Unruly was not a word applied to 'reopen protesters' as they jump in police officer faces. No need to wonder why When demanding civil rights it is important to be polite How about EVERYONE blocking The Associated Press.
This headline sucks, they're protesting being killed in the streets by police and are now being met by tear gas for having the temerity to demand an end to that. This trash was there to cause trouble Protestors being 'unruly' should be the least of our concerns when confronted with state-sanctioned murder.
Unruly? How many cops did the protesters murder in cold blood? That’s what I thought. Unruly, huh? That's the edit you went with? American citizens taking to the streets & literally risking their lives to exercise their right to protest YET ANOTHER grave injustice perpetrated against their community by the police. But they're unruly. Shame on you. All of you.
What is acab? MWSmithLover RKinBangalore RobinCogan so far I heard no reports of looting, Carmen Sandiego’s crooks are always in a looting mood. There wasn’t any looting in the streets of Minneapolis, was there? GeorgeFloyd JusticeForFloyd MinneapolisPoliceMurderdHim ICantBreath What sort of journalism is this, you call that unruly? Where were the police when white people invaded governor mansion with guns?
Does the black man have a name? Meanwhile, white folks can storm capital buildings with firearms... And not a peep. “Unruly”? Delete this. Try harder. Do better. The word unruly is real bad here but let's not sleep on how hard the word 'after' is working. Weren't confronted until they became unruly? Hey , you misspelled 'police brutality'.
Share White people can freely protest, armed with assault weapons in state capital armed in this country? Meanwhile Black Americans peacefully protesting without any weapons over the disgusting and sickening recent police murders get tear gassed? EnoughIsEnough StopTheMadness 'Unruly'? You mean, like this? Funny how no tear gas or rubber bullets are used on people like this, right?
He had a name. George Floyd. Hawaii psychedelic prophecy Bible Dystopia revelation rock jazz hiphop hendrix prince hope prayer dreams artist showbiz music Hollywood KailuaKona Atlanta NYC Milwaukee The Proof via YouTube Unruly The police should let the suspect go if they resist. No life is worth this minor crime. In fact, the police should just disband. People are responsible for their actions.
This is what I warning folks about. People gotta be smart. Shameful. trump’s America. My kids were “unruly” today and I didn’t tear gas and shoot rubber bullets at them. Unruly? Nice way to temper your coverage. I wonder if any white nationalists with assault weapons which took over government buildings were “unruly” . . .
Hawaii psychedelic prophecy Bible Dystopia revelation rock jazz hiphop Jimihendrix prince hope prayer dreams artist showbiz music Hollywood KailuaKona Atlanta NYC losangeles business investor recordlabel 'Proof' Blue Turban Stone But those protesters with guns, demanding hairdressers open by force of gun threats, nothing happened to them. America doesn’t even bother hiding it’s racism anymore.
Let me rewrite that 2nd part for you: 'And as usual, police responded to the peaceful protest with riot gear and tear gas because they're domestic terrorists at this point.' They should be charged with murder Did some copy editing for you. BlackLivesMatter Monsters MinneapolisPD Unruly gets them teargassed. Armed white men were screaming and spitting in the faces of cops when they protested and absolutely nothing happened to them. Unruly? Disgraceful MinneapolisPD absolutely disgraceful. You can't lie this away. There's lots of videos.
Unruly? Wtf? 4 Cops slowly killing GeorgeFloyd and you wanna tell us about unruly? !!! Oh dear, what were they doing? Carrying semi-auto rifles and hanging effigies of governors? The horror! UTLAnow This is bullshit. I'm sorry. America saw a black man murdered by a white cop today as witnesses begged for the officer to allow him to breathe. The four officers have been fired, but none have been arrested. We are all witnesses to this horrific murder. Make arrests of these officers NOW. We want justice.
Why did the police want to make them cry? Not very nice White people, confronting police, armed to the teeth with automatic weapons. Oh, wait... Just imagine they're white guys with grenade launchers. Cops don't do shit for that. George Floyd. His name was George Floyd. The policeman stood on his neck, as witnesses BEGGED HIM TO STOP, until he died. And now righteously furious members of his community are protesting. Try something like that, AP.
Unruly? You’re embarrassing. There's an odd choice of words. Wonder if that means unruly 2nd graders deserve to be attacked with tear gas? This is not Hong Kong. We are not China. .Unruly? But it's ok for heavily armed white nationalist militias to be 'unruly' Ffs 'Unruly'? How about the armed goons who descended bristling with military weaponry like roving warlords, and shut down the Michigan government? Were they unruly? I can't put my finger on why you report it so differently. What could it be?
Stop just firing police. Put them in jail. FUCK THE POLICE. Describe the behavior you are calling “unruly.” Unruly? Get absolutely fucked The guy that filmed it. He shoulda knocked out the first cop, grappled the second to the ground, put his knee in the cop's neck, and yelled in his ear, 'HOW DO YOU FUCKIN LIKE IT?' Police have their power from the people. It can be revoked.
*Murder of an unarmed black man*. Just fixing up your headline for you, This deserves a bigger riot *murder Notice how they make it seem like violence was the protestors' fault. You're supposed to lick the boot, not stick the whole thing in your mouth Isn’t the Mayor of Minneapolis a Democrat? Isn’t he responsible for the police department in his city? Why do democrats create hostile police environments like Minneapolis and NYC where black men are targeted? Does it have to do with the democrats’ creating the KKK?
'unruly' bite me toadies What the fuck. The police rioted. Stop using this smarmy language. The police are the aggressors. “FIRED” is NOT ENOUGH! LockThemUp 😤😤😤😤😤 😱”UNRULY?!” 😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤🤬😤😤😤🤬 The MURDER...even the Associated Press can’t be trusted to deliver unbiased news. Unbelievable I guess they should have brought their LONG GUNS!
Have that same 'unruly' energy when the Flu Klux Klan protests with their guns and threatens to murder public officials. This isn’t the whole truth, there’s videos circulating of two white guys in American flag bandanas with ak47s and handguns. Post hoc, ergo propter hoc. “I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood.” Become unruly.
Whites with guns storm Capitol buildings no problem; blacks with signs need to get gassed. Back to Jim Crow laws? Cops are really using gas during a pandemic where people can catch a respiratory disease. Unruly? 'Death of a black man'? Lemme help you, filthy propagandists. 'Protestors fill the streets after police murder a man while both the victim and bystanders beg for his life.'
There is a group of people who are dangerously out of control in Minneapolis, and it ain’t the protesters. Fuck the AP for this headline. Where was your headline judging the white nationalists who carried heavy weaponry as unruly theorists Unruly? You mean like the domestic terrorists who took guns into a state capitol to intimidate government employees? Who yelled and spit on police officer's faces but were not arrested? That kind of unruly?
Arm black communities. So the protesters in Michigan were 'frustrated' and 'angry' but these are 'unruly'...words matter... of course they show up in riot gear when black people protest, BUT where is it when 'patriots' show up with guns to a state capital threatening a governor? we are watching our country unravel and we aren't near the apex, we're just getting started in TrumpsAmerica
mayorfrey get your police department under control. WTeverlovingF The cops got unruly, assholes. This is outrageous! Yet gangs of white supremacists can swarm the capitols? The police are the unruly ones. DefundThePolice Let's see which Officers come to Cpurt and stand for these Animals. And then you will understand why it won't Stop StopKillingUs
This whole organization should just stop existing Is this how you whitewash fascist US regime No no no. This just excuses police violence which is why they are protesting in the first place. CrickettB5 Intentional (albeit ill-advised) irony? Why does it always comes down to colour in the USA He may have been an unarmed man but that's as far as it goes. He shouldn't be defined by his colour. Maybe he was a doctor or a father or a paramedic.... We probably won't know because someone has made him a political figure
ACAB Unruly?!? They weren’t carrying assault rifles threatening to harm the governor at the statehouse! Did those “white” “protesters” get tear gassed and did the cops wield batons?!? Are protesters meant to be ruled? Unruly? Prove it. I don't recall you using the word 'unruly' to describe armed white protesters in Michigan screaming in the faces of police officers. There are tons of talented journalists looking for work right now. Maybe give one of them the job of the person who chose to use that word.
I hope whoever wrote this burns in hell fascists Sad guy died. Really is. But. A: Did they kill him? B: What is back story? C: Could listening to Cops in beginning have avoided all this? Maybe yes. Maybe no. But what are facts? You know you can say ''alleged murder' if you want right? How come the Police didn’t just detain the “unruly”. Whatever that means. What unlawful acts actually occurred? Where’s the proof Whitewashing
Define unruly. Please. Unruly. What were the protestors with semi-automatic weapons in Michigan last week? Define and prove unruly. Unarmed protesters, but a bunch of white racist carrying guns to the capital is a okay. Racist ap report by racist news agency. Propaganda for white racism. Whitewashed headline
The police always manage to conjure an excuse to shoot tear gas at unarmed majority Black protesters demonstrating anger over yet another Black person dead for no reason but just stand there and take it when armed white people storm a statehouse because they’re bored infants. herbsnterps Weird that a progressive city would do that.
Bullshit Our country is so fucking broken. This tweet is just straight up racist. Unruly? Didn't you mean 'uppity'? Meanwhile, in Michigan white terrorists march armed on the Capitol, and in Kentucky they hang the governor in effigy. We have simply come to accept racial inequity as background noise. Fuck off with this tweet
sounds like racists use 'unruly' is a synonym for 'uppity' Are you muddahfuckahs dizzy AF after writing this? Did you vomit? America is a farce. So is the Shut up “Unruly” 🤦🏻♂️ this headline sucks shit huh? unruly? No, “unruly” is storming capitols and threatening to execute governors. That's code for They weren't armed, angry white people screaming at police officers and shutting down a state capital.
Unruly. Hmmm Bullshit headline. The protests were unarmed and peaceful and the cops escalated this into violence MinneapolisPD CityMinneapolis Come on! Were they armed with AR15's!!! Why the double standard for White Covid protests. Please correct your officers. Really ? Really? This is how you cover it?
Seriously ? This what you reported? Unruly? He was KILLED. We’re we watching the same thing they were? Wtf? FFS this is a joke, right? You can eff right on off with this headline, AP. What percent of editors do you think are white at the Associated Press? Anyone have stats on this? Rightfully so Change this headline.
Did someone from the Trump admin write this headline? Miller? “unruly”? well, it’s not like they murdered somebody FellowWayne The word 'Unruly' is licking a LOT of boots here. I have nothing but contempt for those killer cops. 'Unruly'. But we know who makes the rules, when these guys didn't face any repercussions at all.
Unruly, huh. Why didn’t the fascist gun freaks protesting earlier for their “freedom” to spread disease get this fabulous tear gas treatment. “Unarmed Black Man” Jesus Christ. Give the poor man the dignity of using his name! Unruly how? Did they bring guns to the state capitol and prevent the legislature from meeting? Or were they just voicing their dismay over the needless death? Something in between?
The racial injustice must end with our generation. We can not afford to allow another generation to suffer from the ignorance and hate of the past. oh the police are really winning in this one. murderers But fat white dudes with confederate flags, rifles and Walmart tactical gear forcing their way into government buildings get nothing more than polite crowd control.
So the people walking into US state houses and capitals fully armed with assault rifles and f**king bazookas weren’t “unruly” in your reporting Yeah, we see where this is heading, Chamberlain Fix your headline.. did you call white men with gun at a govt building in Michigan unruly? His name was George Floyd.
Arm the Protesters. GeorgeFloyd BlackLivesMatter Ass holes. Fucking outrageous! Arrest the armed terrorist gathering around state houses and forcing the cancellation of legislative sessions! Was does “unruly” mean? This seems like terrible framing. Fuck outta here with this. He was MURDERED! Say it. Cool cop PR we all know the police never lie and you’ll never question what they tell you
Only fired? Excuse me? “Unruly”? And GeorgeFloyd just up and died, huh? I would say delete this tweet but y’all revealed a lot about yourselves. We see you Unruly? 'became unruly' = 'weren't white'. You're better than this, ap “Unruly” here being used to describe people fed up with their family members being killed, and not the police officers killing them.
You misspelled murder! weird that i misread that as launched That criminal killed the man very slowly. You manufacturing consent pieces of shit. AP is CIA MinneapolisPD deserve every bit of rioting. 4 officers worked together to murder GeorgeFloyd and none of them have been arrested for it. BOOOOOO “became unruly” ok I think police became unruly when they murdered Floyd.
Why didn't they tear gas the domestic terrorists who were protesting to reopen? chrisgeidner nah protestors didn’t become unruly. they were peaceful. this is just the type of protest that the US will employ the full might of the military force against - but won’t for the armed nazis storming the capital and threatening the governor
This shit has got to stop. I am to the point now when I see a Police Car with the words 'To Protect and Serve' on it I throw up a little in the back of my mouth. I hope Floyd's family sues Minneapolis into bankruptcy. Welcome to the united POLICE states of america. Why not change that heading to “protest the murder of an innocent man, by police”?!?!
And yet no one marches in Chicago. That’s second degree murder right there, undoubtedly Maybe it's time America has an all-black police force 🤔 Tear gas because they were unruly? Hmmm White officers killing blacks indiscriminately will have consequences. One day, Africans are going to do the same to whites in Africa. You have a white cop on camera saying they don't kill white people, they only kill black people. And this is another example.
The courts and legislators continue to fail black Americans. It is time for black men to arm themselves with accurate rifles and take some target practice at tin stars from a distance. Do unto others as long as they do unto you. Time to stop wishing for change and start acting. The America which is a WhiteSupremacist racist state.
The death of a man in police custody, or the brutal police murder of George Floyd? The police are 'unruly' when their institution openly murders people without judge or jury while providing immunity to themselves. firing them is not enough, that was a fucking murder, on video , he needs to be charged with murder
'...murder of an unarmed black man' Weird how they fear for their lives but not on the others. chrisgeidner Could dozens of heavily armed black men march into the capital building tomorrow GovTimWalz ? They should have marched in the governor's mansion fully armed and hung him in effigy Hard to trust the media with a blatant lie like 'several hundred,' try 10s of thousands.
He was MURDERED by the police. Words matter. Maybe consult your own Stylebook I suspect unruliness is not mentioned in AP's coverage of armed protesters who have threatened governors. This is the kind of stuff that happens when peoples freedoms are taken away by a shutdown that has lasted too long and rules that restrict people too much!
I see The AP is doing PR work for the police thugs who murdered a man in cold blood The police agitated any violence that took place. They’re murders and deserve no sympathy More sadly, this is happening after I just saw the movie, 'the hate you give' I just can't get this off my chest... It's so 😔 sad... 😢😢😢😭😭😭!
Why don’t they fire tear gas at the real perpetrators who bust in with guns and terrorists attire? Because they are White Racists Terrorists! “Unruly” 🤔 Did those unruly protesters carry automatic weapons and march through the statehouse? ReignOfApril 'Anguished and protesting' unruly, or 'brandishing semi-automatic weapons and screaming in officers' faces' unruly...?
After killing a black man. Racism every where makes me truly wonder if we should have the United Nations organization at all.... What are we uniting when we can't simply respect humanity even with all the love we tend to preach? It was DEATH it WAS MURDER use the Right Words Depraved indifference..... Such conspicuously gross wickedness with impunity.... It's so sad and annoying.
You are a disgrace. George Floyd was killed in cold blood by those 4 police officers. Why putting out the wrong narrative to drive up more racism killings of innocent black people. What an absolute shame!! All four cops involved were fired today for their part in the murder (a good start). Include that in your little headline.
Yeah, these people are difficult to rule, we better confront them with tear gas! In the Stylebook is 'unruly' defined as surrounding a police precinct, throwing bricks through the windows and destroying cars? If so, how does define 'riot'? Stop lying *to protest the murder of an unarmed black man* How does Trump get so lucky? Media is off his Covid failures and back to dividing us by race just in time for him to win re-election. Guess it was destiny
too bad they weren't White AK-47 Michigan Sturm Troopers. Would've been handed free Popeyes 8 piece boxes + 32 Oz Cokes. Peaceful people Great response MinneapolisPD Tear gas and rubber bullets really prove that you don’t have a problem with police violence. “...After MURDER of George Floyd.” I fixed it for you.
Jesus Christ, you post the article a second time and still you won't say George Floyd's name It was murder. Confronted? Terrorized. Unruly? Understandably angry. Perhaps if you stopped enabling the narrative that police are always in the right these things would not happen. The police started shooting without warning and attacked a journalist just trying to cover the event ACAB
Try several thousand protesters. Wow. 😪 Its time. All lives matter! ACAB

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Stop killing cops and white people fired!!!!? this is not the rule of the law, this is a tribal law, they should face charges, stop making this about blacks and whites, human life is human life. PERIOD I'm glad they're gone & I hope it becomes more of a trend to handle excessive police force swiftly & severely. Black folks are not monsters that need slaying; if a crime is committed, it need not automatically cost his life.
