The officers should all be locked up without bond .  I m totally disappointed and disgusted over this continued military style police brutality.   When they hire these guys that are trained to kill , they completely ignore right vs wrong. ...and take the military approach , take no prisoners.   I m ashamed as an american for this behavior.

When you allow the police to continue to believe they are above the citizenry they will continue to show little regard for you.  Police treat everyone as beneath them.  If you're wealthy you can buy them, but otherwise regardless of race, they view themselves as having dominion over you.  There's a hierarchy beneath them, but make no mistake who is at the top.

Why do we allow that?  The police answer to us.  Municipalities can disband local police forces at their discretion and form new ones.  People do have the power to fire every last one of them if we choose.

Itís a little more complicated than this.

We donít have the power to fire anyone.  The elected officials we vote in have this power.

Yes we can put pressure on elected officials to act in one way or another but thereís a lot more factors and moving parts here than just Ďwe have the power to fire everyoneí

Yes, I'm well aware it's the elected officials who do the hiring and firing.  Who do you think elects these officials?  You can't just pass it off on the elected officials. Voters have a responsibility to put people in those positions who will reflect their will.

we need the bodycam footage and toxicology report. we should know what happened before the infamous scene, what was being said, and what drugs he was on.

it may offer a better explanation as to why the officers were so intent on restraining floyd above all else. my guess is the strong 6í7Ē former athlete, who was intoxicated, put up a hell of a fight, and officers were concerned if they let up, theyíd be at risk.

Letís assume thatís true, even though thereís no evidence to indicate this level of resistance.

Does that justify kneeling on a non-resisting manís neck for nine minutes?  For three minutes after heís unconscious?

Iím well aware of who puts the elected officials in office, in fact I said as much in my post.

The point is just because we vote to put someone in office doesnít mean theyíll behave and be a puppet for the people.  Thereís a whole lot more factors involved here than just voter outrage, especially if an elected official is at the end of his term and canít be re-elected.

The point is, if change was a simple as you outline in your post then we wouldnít be having discussions like this nearly as often as we do

floyd was a career criminal and heavy cocaine user, he committed at least two crimes the day he died:

1. dui
2. resisting arrest
3. forgery (possible)

the autopsy concluded floyd died from a combination of heart disease and Ďpotential intoxicants in the systemí.

This is disingenuous.  Youíre intentionally leaving out the most important part:

Quote
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner (ME) conducted Mr. Floydís autopsy
on May 26, 2020.

The full report of the ME is pending but the ME has made the following preliminary
findings.

The autopsy revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.

The defendant had his knee on Mr. Floydís neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in total.

Two minutes and 53 seconds of this was after Mr. Floyd was non-responsive. Police are trained that this type of restraint with a subject in a prone position is inherently dangerous.

Are you seriously trying to argue that the nine minutes of restraint had nothing to do with his death?  When you intentionally lie about evidence to try to justify the killing of a man, I think it says a lot about your prejudices.

Well done, hooligans:

Quote
Rioters protesting the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, an African-American man who died after being arrested and pinned to the ground by officer Derek Chauvin, destroyed a bar owned by a black former firefighter Wednesday night.

Korboi Balla had invested his life savings in the bar and was planning to open it before the coronavirus pandemic caused mass business closures. Balla then moved the opening date to June 1, when Minnesota plans to lift restrictions on restaurants, but the bar has since been wracked and looted in the riots, CBS first reported.

CBS was filming a segment at the bar when looters entered through the back of the establishment to try to steal Ballaís safe.

ďI donít know what weíre going to do,Ē Balla said in an interview. ďIt hurts, man. Itís not fair, itís not right. Weíve been working so hard for this place. Itís not just for me, itís for my family.Ē

Way to go, mob.  Instead of one African American dying, youíve compounded that by ensuring that many more black lives will be destroyed.

Probably saved their lives.

Cops would have killed them sooner or later also.

This has been going on long enough.

People are angry that change is not happening.

Justice is not happening.

Safety is not happening.

Revolution is the only answer and it will be violent.

If roles were reversed and whites were senselessly killed by black cops or Muslims policemen or Asian sheriffs for years and years youíd definitely have a different perspective.

So, explain how looting and destroying restaurants and furniture stores is adding to your revolution.  People of all races now do not have jobs to go back to you. Owners of small businesses, including minority owners, have had their dreams smashed. Stereotypes about blacks have been enforced, and much of the positive momentum for change will now be diminished.

we are increasingly living in a police state. There is a segment of the population that sees the police as that thin blue line that protects them from what one poster here refers to as 'the black savages'. This is why the Cooper incident occurred in Central Park. That is why Chauvin was not arrested until nationwide pressure. You see that segment of the population that counts on the police has to assure the police that 'they got their back', so that they can go out and continue to keep those 'savages' at bay.

No one, and I repeat NO ONE is doing anything about this problem. The civil rights leadership is comprised of shake down artist that are doing it for the money. Everything  about America is about money. No one is addressing the deep fundamental problems. No one is addressing the stockpiling of weapons by citizens in the south. What are they buying arms for? Who are they gearing up to fight? No one is addressing that now, but be sure when trouble happens their will be an outcry of surprise, and yet OUTRAGE.

I guess Iím one of those that the police protects as you literally have to go around the police station to get on my street and development so in a way I do feel protected. With that said I think you are exaggerating what is perceived to be societal problems in the USA .
How come the deep societal problems and a system of racism and corporate obedience do not stop millions of people immigrating to this country every year??? Why do people from around the world voluntarily come here to be subject to the above oppression?
Is it possible that you have more freedoms than you realize.. and more resources to become a better version of yourself here as opposed to other countries?
How is it possible that people that speak no English are capable of coming to a new country and are able to provide for themselves and their family and not get in trouble with the law but people that are born here are completely incapable off doing that? It is never the fault of the people themselves but it is the fault of the current system?

And hereís one for the Estate of George Floyd.

And now my cynical side...  why is so much of the money going to legal expenses, rather than directly into trust for his children?  I hope this isnít a case of the lawyers getting paid before anyone else, or the sister using it to cut out her nieces and nephews.  The kids just seem like an afterthought, to receive ďa portionĒ of proceeds..

Lumping people that generally support law enforcement and consider themselves reasonable people when it comes to interpreting injustice in with the guy who was using the awful rhetoric we saw earlier is just as much of as part of the problem as the people who are being willfully ignorant when it comes to injustice.

I can support law enforcement and still be outraged by this, I can have friends who are in law enforcement and know theyíre good people and still acknowledge that there are problems.

The officers should all be locked up without bond .  I m totally disappointed and disgusted over this continued military style police brutality.   When they hire these guys that are trained to kill , they completely ignore right vs wrong. ...and take the military approach , take no prisoners.   I m ashamed as an american for this behavior.

When you allow the police to continue to believe they are above the citizenry they will continue to show little regard for you.  Police treat everyone as beneath them.  If you're wealthy you can buy them, but otherwise regardless of race, they view themselves as having dominion over you.  There's a hierarchy beneath them, but make no mistake who is at the top.

Why do we allow that?  The police answer to us.  Municipalities can disband local police forces at their discretion and form new ones.  People do have the power to fire every last one of them if we choose.

In VA , once a White elderly lady in her 80's backed her car out of her very long drive way to get to the news paper box for her paper  around 6 AM on a Sunday morning.  She backed into the road , and stopped for a moment to get out and get her paper . What she did was illegal , but would it hurt for 60 seconds on a sleepy sunday morning?  No traffic at all at that time on Sunday and a nice morning.   A local policeman , sees her car park in the street on his beat.  What he did not know , was there were witnesses looking out windows .   He approached her in a very ruff manor asking her. in cuss words what was her car doing out on a street illegally .  She held the newspaper up in an an apologetic manor .  He wanted answers started screaming at her to obey him...do this and that in threatening manor . She looked terrified and confused .  He grabbed this poor totally helpless woman and flung her down on the trunk of her old car and handcuffed her.    She was banged up pretty bad from the way he tossed her around while he screamed at her.

She was all but totally deaf  :-[.      she couldn't hear a word he said .   He was enraged out of his mind at her lack of immediate cooperation.  What a awful thoughtless worthless excuse for a human being this cop was.

Fortunately neighbors witnessed this and called the State Police .

He was thrown out of the entire state and ask never to return .

Police should be trained NOT to use force and always be polite .  Police work FOR the Citizens ....and should
 be taught NEVER forget that .

Penalty for ruff police should be very very very harsh and they should be banned from ever holding a public office .

This is only one example of many i know personally. 

Im am for NEVER ever hiring former military trained police .   Their brains are fried and methods to immediate and harsh . 

I would have stopped smiled and gently asked if i could help in any way ....what is wrong with kindness ?   I would have seen to it that she got her car back in the drive way ,  and in a polite way asked her t be careful of the traffic always .   Maybe she had a bit weak brain from age. 

How would you have liked to see your elderly mother beaten and thrown down on a car and hand cuffed over this ?

ďI donít know what weíre going to do,Ē Balla said in an interview. ďIt hurts, man. Itís not fair, itís not right. Weíve been working so hard for this place. Itís not just for me, itís for my family.Ē

Way to go, mob.  Instead of one African American dying, youíve compounded that by ensuring that many more black lives will be destroyed.

Probably saved their lives.

Cops would have killed them sooner or later also.

This has been going on long enough.

People are angry that change is not happening.

Justice is not happening.

Safety is not happening.

Revolution is the only answer and it will be violent.

If roles were reversed and whites were senselessly killed by black cops or Muslims policemen or Asian sheriffs for years and years youíd definitely have a different perspective.

So, explain how looting and destroying restaurants and furniture stores is adding to your revolution.  People of all races now do not have jobs to go back to you. Owners of small businesses, including minority owners, have had their dreams smashed. Stereotypes about blacks have been enforced, and much of the positive momentum for change will now be diminished.

Keisha L-B is part of the problem. The entire elected political class in America are agents of corporations and do not know what to do with larger societal problems. The system is broken. Government has to be proactive not reactive.

Tell us the proactive things that government should have been doing in your opinion.  BTW -- I'm aware that there are proactive steps that can and should be made -- I'm listening and interested in hearing what your specific advice would be.

Important to note as well that being an effective leader will ALWAYS be in part how you respond to situations as they occur.  Her response in this case seems good to me.  It doesn't make her a wonderful politician, but when faced with a situation you have to do something and I think her statements were appropriate.
