Until police start policing themselves, communities will continue to erupt. NoJusticeNoPeace 'Lock him up!' *21 Wow EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PROTEST SMELLS FISHY!!! RealRonHoward 😢😢😢😡😡😡😡 Should have been fired a long time ago!! This tragedy could have been avoided. RealRonHoward Fired and arrested for murder?

Police are absolutely at fault for all of this . The entire precinct is guilty if not the whole department We don’t need lethal fire police! RealRonHoward Odd how FakeNews .abcnews doesn’t report fact that when she was AG, democrat .amyklobuchar refused to prosecute cop who killed George Floyd after a previous incident

Of course he was, white privileged ! Come on America. You brought the black man to America! Slavery is over! Send this guy to jail right now , how does he still have a badge. RealRonHoward ALL Police Departments I’m thus country should really now be put on notice: YOU WILL BE VIDEO TAPED AND YOU WILL GO DOWN. I’m so fucking tired of this shit!

RealRonHoward Is there video, I have not seen it. Thanks to president Trump we still have our second amendment rights to protect ourselves His superiors should be held accountable too. Get rid of them all. They condoned his behavior You were warned of a liability 18 times and that is just what is documented and you failed to act. Sue the force for policy limits, then sue the murderer for everything in his name. Hopefully he is in a prison who doesn’t favor cops by the time you get the title to his home.

Well, there you go. There are just some people who are not meant to carry a badge and gun. There are means to screen them out, so I have to wonder if departments are even trying to. the man did not die at the scene he died later at the hospitals. Every officer in this city has complaints on them, Thats why they have high crime and murder in the city

Coward and a bully. Shame on Minneapolis Police Dept for continuing his employment. The officer’s pattern of questionable behavior escalated to torture and murder. His superiors should have intervened long before this incident. DISBAND THEIR UNION. GeorgeFloyd Every american news outlet was condemning Hong Kong police for brutality, funny how its all OK in the USA, tear gas, beatings with batons etc good in USA very bad in Hong Kong

I hope they keep going. fuckyourblueline modernredcoats Oathbreakers The city is an utter failure!!! Democrats ruin everything!!!! BenjAlvarez1 nice photo hahahahahahahahha Sounds like a great guy. Glad he is gone I would hate to be him right now. Yikes. The passerby video is enough probable cause to arrest the killers. If it were you or me, we would have been in custody within minutes. Failure to arrest the suspects is causing this unrest. Those arrested can be released if evidence is not sufficient.

So full of shit. Arrest the fucken guy. Let the prison do justice. We all see this guy with his knee on his neck and the guy needed to breathe. What happened to serve and protect? Nothing will be done and a murderer will get away yet again! This was a ridiculous waste of time and resources I think that people have to understand, those who rioted & looted in the UK for a similar issues were all on video, arrested & prosecuted! Committing arson, riots & looting against people who have nothing to do with it, isn't right, those shops weren't involved! FoxNews

Americans must fight!destroy police office Minneapolis get ready for tonight after this scam press interview... This is some straight bull$hit I think she just made everything worse. Some lip service 👋🏾👋🏾 here we go Should have been kicked out ages ago. If this was an average person who performed these acts, they would be arrested. JusticeForGeorgeFloyd

Arrests are made every day with far less evidence— and then investigations are conducted. I don’t believe a word they’ve said. Unf**king believable 😳. Now everyone who ever faced prosecution while she was in office is raising a eyebrow. Guaranteed....white, black, immigrant, hispanic, etc,etc....😒 I have a dooter!

Bullshit why are the officers not arrested What investigation really needs to be done here. I don’t care, this was murder. He needs to be behind BARS tonight This might be a more ugly night than last night. Wtf, 18 complaints! And it takes killing a man to get him fired. This man is a sadist with a badge. He should never have been allowed into the police force in the first place.

Trump is over. Go Biden Harris. Go vote mail in voting paper ballots work be counted! not hearing anything about the police chief. who needs to be fired in the least Damn first it was 12 now it's 18. Just how many citations did he received?🤔 It's manslaughter, not murder. Join to use tech to protect Black people from racism & xenophobia. iloveblackppl_ BlackLivesMatter JusticeForGeorgeFloyd

Poor policing, poor leadership. Your typical Democrat-run city. What if conservatives cared about saving Black Americans from getting killed as much as they cared for Target stores I see 19 coming soon Why did none of the complaints against this officer result in disciplinary action? Maybe he did nothing wrong. The more likely it is because none of these incidents were caught on tape.

also, where does that put him in the rankings for the dept? How the hell did this guy still have a job after 18 complaints? Any other person would have been fired. SMH. WE NEED TO SEE THE POLICE PICTURE IF TRULY FIRED OR LIE WE NEED THE VIDEO POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIAL AS WELL shocking 18 complaints? 18 opportunities to save George Floyd's life. 18 is a lot of complaints. The person who dealt with these complaints needs to explain why the 19th ended in murder.

Just out of perspective, because I don’t know, how many complaints does an average police officer receive each year?
