RachelRileyRR CNN are fuelling this shit and giving it gravitas, this is not rage this is using the tragic death of somebody to do violence for a political end CNN fuels these race riots and divisions, all they care about is getting the Democrats in power not black folk they are just exploited RachelRileyRR WTF

So he’s BEEN a ticking time bomb for years with possibly PTSD n he’s allowed to walk around with a badge n a gun..😳🤔🤔🤔 trina_615 And they did nothing since then🤦 AFRICA IS CALLING.. PLEASE COME BACK HOME ALL MY AFRICAN BROTHER'S AND SISTER'S IN DIASPORA That’s great America plot twist they worked together at a restaurant for 1 yr......damm....

Et on laisse ce monstre circuler dans la rue 😭😭😭. Vraiment triste. It is plain and simple, if they want the riots to stop, they need to do the right thing and arrest those 4 police officers and charge them for murder! To all if the higher ups that have the authority to do this, YOU need to take a stand and know that it's time to make a change.

Time to clean house in the police departments administration Hong Kong always with us protester。 The long list of complaints of brutality from citizens against Minneapolis PD officers shows there’s an endemic problem that needs to be addressed. Instead, it’s covered up, dismissed and allowed to fester into what we are witnessing now: a PD that’s lawless.

40 days , finally his time is here now How was he allowed to keep his job. Off to jail with him now....PLEASE. jaketapper Why is he not arrested? No capability issues there! This day was inevitable! Fact is, it's not just Black people who's outraged but White's & people of color from other ethnicities.The fake minority/majority assignment in America is fixed to keep the true majority thinking they are fewer thus allowing some to control the wealth.

GerriPerez3 This means his supervisor, the police union and the police chief. Failed to protect the public, because they didn't fire this unprofessional officer earlier! They looked the other way every time a complaint was filed against this officer. George's death is also on their hands. MURDERS And the 18 complaint resulted in what?

gtconway3d it's reasonable to assume that officer should not have had a badge. 18 complaints is normally only something that would happen to a misunderstood rebel cop on a television show or movie. 没有暴徒,只有暴政,五大诉求,缺一不可,Hong Kong always with you。 The blame is on the fucking department. When is 1 complaint just is 1 too much. The department did not care. BlackLivesMatter JusticeForFloyd

In the absence of video footage clearly showing their officers killing another human being on plain sight, I would say that MPD requires at least 20 complaints before doing something about their employees behavior. The 3 other cops that stood there and watched are equally as guilty. I have a dream Maybe they could set a cap limit at say ......10

And George Floyd had a long arrest record including armed robbery We're the least likely group of people to hate another race, yet we're the most hated. In Africa we thought the policemen are brutal but even in the USA. How come complaints about an officer are swept and kept under the carpet. Are blacks a CURSE TO THE WORLD?

The police men must go to jail no matter how good their evidence is, we are talking about somebody life here, CNN REPORTERS '' should stop backing evil people up but it comes to Donald Trump you we be to write rubbish to castigate his name. It should have only took 3 complaints. White privilege is a MF.

😂😂😂😂 most happened between 2008-2016 why now? Stop politicizing this mans murder Yet he still isn't locked up. Minny police dept got a nasty wrongful death lawsuit on their hands. And Amy Klobuchar did nothing. Try covering that. Were the complaints from different races, genders and ages? Why has he not been arrested?

The 4 officers definitely needs to see justice but these animals rioting and looting, don’t give a fuck about justice. NotASingleWorkBootLooted ? 18 complaints ? !!! Still working as a cop ? DerekChauvin minneapolisriots That’s just fucking ridiculous!!!! But for some odd reason, I’m not at all surprised that the MPD continued to tolerate this racist pig’s actions and kept him on the force. He’d probably still be on the force if it wasn’t for cell phone cameras. 😡🤬🤬

yup... kudos to Sunny. If you can find the clip, it's apparent she knew what she was doing. Completely avoided the question. It was this interview that I completelt lost respect for her and she lost my support for anything. If only amyklobuchar would have brought charges against Chauvin in 2006 for killing Wayne Reyes, GeorgeFloyd might still be alive!

jaketapper How come the rioters aren't adhering to 6 ft. Distancing? Is there no virus in the middle of burning buildings to the ground? They all need the death penalty. gtconway3d Maybe someone should make them wear an arm band or a color on their collar so that any person working with them and any person coming in contact t with them will KNOW to be very cautious and attentive to potential bad Actions. It will also KEEP them in line !!

Nice guys those at Minneapolis police department. To serve and to protect 🤔 这就是所谓的人权? Officer Derek Chauvin needs to be arrested. katiecouric He should have been fired long ago and a life would have been saved This is your American freedom and democracy 18 attempted murder charges With 18 prior complaints, how in the hell was this officer still active? That needs to be investigated as well. If he had been pulled off duty by those prior complaints, George Floyd might still be alive.

MeredithTerHaar What the heck? Then the leadership of the police department needs fired & demoted. 💨 🔥! gtconway3d 18 previous complains, all his commanders need to be fired 1st, enabling this criminal to stay on force, opposite to his oath to protect and serve. His commanders don't serve nor protect, but enable violence against The People disregards the constitution/oath. 18 is systemic!!!

Trump runs Internal Affairs in the Minneapolis PD Lock his sorry ass up gtconway3d OK, so now it’s time to start talking about firing the chief. Because someone with 18 complaints with IA certainly would’ve come under the scrutiny of the chief! Or someone very close to him. rollSomeHeads Who’s shocked?

Have you asked Amy about that? jaketapper The foxes are in charge of the chicken coop. The blue line is there to protect civilians but they protect themselves best. gtconway3d Why is this cop not behind bars? Goodness me!!!😪🤦 gtconway3d Unfuckingbelievable Arrests!!! gtconway3d He will be killed in prison, and he will deserve it.

gtconway3d Finally a headline that doesn't need fixing. 18 complaints. A person in almost any job would not have a job if this was their track record. That is 17x too many. Let the truth be told. Bring the evil to the surface. No longer can we ignore this hidden crime mentality of biased authority power driven by prejudice

Sounds like a stand up guy, sure looks like he 100% deserves what’s coming to him Why was he still working JohnJHarwood Would be interesting to know the nature of those complaints. pesolette_ It’s so easy to get rid of the Supremecists & obvious trouble cops on the force ... but they refuse to do it Record any interaction with police whenever possible. They aren't all bad, but if you're unlucky, you have little recourse even if you have the incident recorded, and even less recourse if you do not.

MaraLiasson Right, but since they apparently still operate by the 2/3 of a person ethos, really it’s only like a dozen. Does Trump even know this happened? He’s too worried about being blocked on Twitter to give a shit. I am white but if you at a person of any other Color of skin than white you are discriminated against. So sad , I am so sorry! All Americans no matter what color their skin is should be treated equally!!!!!

Was he arrested yet? hunt him and kill 18 complaints and he was still in duty ? What’s the magic number? 20? Charge him with second degree murder. I think all the people that were stealing and burning down the stores should be arrested and put in prison. All they were is a bunch of thugs. Tragedy. Officers involved need to be brought to justice and those that rioted need to be held accountable also. No excuse for either.

Когда будут хорошие новости? If we could get rid of people breaking laws like George Floyd we wouldn't need police. He was a convicted felon who spent time in prison for armed robbery & in another instance for a home invasion. In this case a police officer went too far & took a life. A mistake in judgment.

Wow 18 complaints clearly this man a bad cop!! And this is a country that attacks China for what it does to its minorities. Well lead by example so that you will be credible This is a cover up and a systemic problem wi th police in America oh, we didn’t even need another reason. mattmacklin What an absolute disgrace this is from start to finish. Shameful.

And look who wouldn’t prosecute the cop that killed before! 18! And he still drank wine, ate steak, and went on a choking spree! jaketapper What a coward! Hey guys, wanna hear a joke? “America, the land of freedom “ WTF? And he still kept his job? Disgusting police department! Negligent supervisor PAY THE FAMILY

What city would you like the looters to destroy next? Wow, and lefty did nothing. He belongs in jail Someone clearly doesnt wanna charge this officer..It only shows that if this wasn't on video, it wouldve been swept under the rug as just another suspect resisting...The district attorney should also be fired.

Shame! Shame!!!!!! Clearly the system in Minnesota and the Mayor are behind and in support of this, that Mayor should be questioned fr. JusticeForGeorgeFloyd GeorgeFloyd minneapolisriots BlackLivesMatter StopRacismSaveLives WeDontWantRacistLeaders. Why is it so hard for him and his buddies to just be arrested and charged? What's the damn hold up? Seriously!

Waiting for justice So they waited until he killed someone to make an example out of If it wasn’t for donlemon I would stop watching this channel!! Protect donlemon at all costs ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾 This is bad so sad. White privileged at its best Americans have institutionalized killing Blacks Homtut Soundstalgic DreamNigeria

18 complaints? if anyone with 18 complaints against him at a work force, the person should have fired longer ago. Death penalty for him. His prior history is as irrelevent to this discussion as Mr. Floyd's which wasn't exactly saint-like either. All that matters is when the cuffs go on and physical resistence to arrest is over, it's over. There is no need to smear the officer. He is guilty of murder no matter what

🖤 18? How bout 1 2 or 3...and you're out. What a joke. Hope he gets the book thrown at him He needs to be charged, NOW! 18?!?!? Which means its a systematic problem within the department. Peel the layers back on other offices and there will be more like him. Unfortunately MinneapolisPD is not unique. This issue spreads nationwide throughout 1000s of PDs.

The Supreme Court Broke Police Accountability. Now It Has the Chance to Fix It.This week, after protests over George Floyd’s death, the Supreme Court may revisit a key doctrine shielding police officers.
