Headline edit: WHO DIED WHILE AND AS A RESULT OF OFFICER CHAUVIN KNEELING ON HIS NECK. - because you guys read the investigation right?! Officers checked his pulse twice and he had none and the refused to turn him on his side. IDIOTS.

From black men killed in the🇺🇸US streets as George Floyd &many others, to the🇺🇸US foreign destructive interventions and actions the🌍 must stand up against🇺🇸US government exercise of injustice. 🇺🇸US must STOP killing by asphyxiation Men&countries. It's an abuse against HUMANITY.

Why it for black people matters only, if the black people are killed by whites and policemen, which is statistically quite rare?

Pathetic lefty propaganda

Many of Joe Bidens staff paid rioters and then bragged about it on Twitter...

Geez, they must be having a service for Floyd in all 5 states he served prison sentences!

They didn't even know him what a bunch of idiots.

The officers are charge. The murderer is jailed. Justice is functioning! That's what we all get! Floyd was a criminal with a very long record. He held a PREGNANT black woman at gun point after breaking into her home. This guy should NOT be martyred:criminal and drug addict.

Turns out Floyd was violently resisting arrest and has a rap sheet that Charles Manson would be proud of. I hate to see people die but I also don’t like to see people being manipulated into useful idiots as rioters, looters, and killers. Pray for the President and the country. 🇺🇸

So I can’t visit grandma but media says we should gather in large groups and scream. Covid is smiling

His death was terrible, unwarranted, and regrettable. The man who caused his death is being punished. But, when are we going to quit pretending he was a saint. He was a criminal w/ long record and a drug addict. 3 televised funerals celebrating him as a hero is way overboard.

But but corona

Remember a week ago when no one was allowed to have funerals? But a career criminal gets 3...
