Good grief He didn’t kneel on him he Murdered him

In murder cases they charge people who were part of the crime with a criminal offense known as being an accessory. It would seem that every officer at this scene should be charged. So sad that this news tweet has to be a like. It would’ve been a lot quicker if you used the right fucking word: murder This headline sucks
