    No he did not deserve to be suffocated and die at the hands of a racist cop but he did resist and that alone is what escalated the situation but cops these days are trained to act on impulse while we are supposed to sit with a gun to our face and act calm

    i feel like alot of people here are trying to justify bad policing techniques even if he was doing bad ... there didnt appear to be any danger to the police ... just bad attitudes

    Of course he didn’t deserve to die and for that the officers will be held accountable and punished accordingly,But one incident like this doesn’t exempt officers from doing what the need to do and that is protect themselves and law abiding citizens.For everyone outlier such as this there are hundreds more where the criminal tries to get the upper hand by resisting arrest or the use of weapon.remember a truly innocent person will not resist being detained or arrested for if he’s truly innocent the worst than can happen is he will be inconvenienced if he is detained or falsely arrested.the true criminal will always resist arrest for fear of going to prison.

    He may been a criminal but it is the duty of the police officer to arrest and charge him in a court of law and not to thrust the knee on his neck and kill him. No one has the right go take a God given life but through the process of the law only and proved in court. The law and order process must be followed and George Floyd was murdered by this cop for a simple crime. Police brutality must be condemned and it is the duty of the government to monitor and ensure that the police are to do their duty professionally and not to take the law into their own hands like the criminals. They have to ensure the safety of the people they arrest and be respinsible for their life.

    He is gone and he was not a saint. Family spent all their grieving money, wanting more.

    Well, he was high on drugs, dropped his gun trying to escape the police.. which means, he was a lethal weapon in that car, and he would probably have used his gun on the police too.. thank god the police stopped that drug user..

    This is the face of a paid shill who has profited handsomely from Floyd's death. By the way, he didn't write his speech.

    They have been fought God and nature for centuries, and they knew, no power was there to help or to stop them. We must find a way to stop this evils and the children of devil who wear the white skin to look like a person. The fight is not with the white people even if those crule want it to sound like that, to misleading the innocent white people. Be brave and be with others who understand life and nature. Avoid having discussions and contact with such such backward morons
