Happening? That was my first thought when I just read the article, how could this happen again after Eric Gardner. Why wasn’t every police force in this country
Trained and held to standard that to subdue and arrest, u don’t need to kill.

But watching that and hearing people trying to save his life and the murdering cops just being cavalier just got me

prototype

stand ur ground, believe in urself,
believe in love, prepare urself for love, remove the negativity from ur life, and accept the love u kno u deserve

Can't wait for the forthcoming, coordinated smear campaign, followed promptly by the inevitable "after a thorough internal investigation, it has been determined that the officer in question acted appropriately and followed protocol in restraining the suspect, and will resume his regular duties effective immediately."

and (some) cops still find it in their heart to act in this manner.

Some folks just aren't meant to own a badge. Truly wish more folks in power would realize that.

... in actuality those are typically the exact people who they want to have badges and who get them. Just one of the many reasons that these instances are usually covered up, and justice is rarely served.

I get it when folks resist arrest you have to get creative to get them in cuffs I guess (or perhaps I’ve just been watching too much of The Wire) but once he’s in cuffs you should immediately get your fucking knee off of his neck.

Of course it should go without saying his knee should have never been on his neck.

Jesus though.

This really is Eric Garner 2020.

I just don’t understand why the cops don’t listen when they say they can’t breathe.

I guess they just truly don’t give a fuck about black lives.

In response to Reply # 13


          

cell phone videos, while acting sadly as much needed evidence, had the unintended consequence of completely desensitizing us to the murder of black folks live on TV.

I hope we as a nation keep on being shocked and saddened every time we see it but sometimes I worry it just works instead to numb us.

Article didn’t. Hearing him pleading and the bystanders pleading and the cop making that comment about this is why u don’t do drugs just makes the murder all that more ugly.

And the fact is, like u alluded to, without these videos, most of these injustices would never be known and people would not be held accountable

22. "there wouldnt be *any* accountability without the videos"
In response to Reply # 15


  

          

and the public outrage they cause (even among white people).

i understand the downside/apprehension to a constant barrage of black death porn.

but lets not forget what things were like pre-cam when police abuse was basically adjudicated like some he say she say shit.

to put it in perspective...a black man beat a double murder charge with 2 white victims (that he was likely guilty of) largely because the credibility of the police department handling the case had been damaged so badly by being caught beating an unarmed black man on film.

much of white america wouldnt even be able to fathom what the police are capable of if these videos didnt exist and werent widely circulated.

i agree
i do not watch videos of us getting killed at all
if i go to a news site
i quickly scroll down so the video isn't visible and read the text
it is one of the reasons i got off of fb years ago

they should give you the option to play it
i hate that it automatically plays

We don't see white people killed on camera. Dead white bodies has never been a beloved part of American history. Even if the video is available, he's asking why it's so hard to find an article without it.

14. "4 officers fired (WaPo swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/05/26/minneapolis-police-death-custody-fbi/

Breaking: Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) said that the officers “involved in the death of George Floyd have been terminated,” adding that, “This is the right call.”

In a video shared on social media early Tuesday, a Minneapolis police officer pins his knee against the neck of a black man who appears to be struggling to breathe on the ground.

“I cannot breathe! I cannot breathe!” the man yells as bystanders gather. “Don’t kill me!”

The Minneapolis Police Department announced early Tuesday that the unnamed man, who is believed to be in his 40s, later died of a “medical incident” after police responded to a report of a forgery in progress on Monday.

Now, the FBI and state authorities are investigating his death as advocates and city officials call for a quick response.

“Being black in America should not be a death sentence,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) said during a news conference Tuesday. “For five minutes, we watched as a white officer pressed his knee to the neck of a black man. For five minutes. When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic human sense.”

AD

The incident began when two officers arrived at the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue South around 8 p.m. Monday, police said. Officers located the man, whom they believed to be under the influence, inside his car. After he got out, police said, the man “physically resisted officers.”

“Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and realized that the suspect was suffering a medical distress,” a Minneapolis police spokesman said in a news briefing early Tuesday. “Officers called for an ambulance. He was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center where he died a short time later.”

Police said that no weapons were used at any time by the man or the officers during the encounter.

Darnella Frazier was on her way to see friends when she saw the incident unfolding outside of a Cup Foods grocery store on the south side of Minneapolis. She quickly began recording the encounter in a 10-minute video later shared to Facebook.

AD

“When I walked up, he was already on the ground,” Frazier said in a Facebook video. “The cops, they was pinning him down by his neck and he was crying. They wasn’t trying to take him serious.”

As more people gathered around the encounter outside the grocery store, the man pleaded that his whole body was in pain. Frazier recalled that the man’s face was being pressed so hard against the ground that his nose was bleeding.

Witnesses begged the white officer to take his knee off the man’s neck.

“You’re going to just sit there with your knee on his neck?” one bystander said on the video.

Minutes later, the man appeared to be motionless on the ground, his eyes closed and head laying against the road.

“Bro, he’s not even f------ moving!” one bystander pleaded to police. “Get off of his neck!”

Another asked, “Did you kill him?”

AD

Later, the unconscious man was loaded onto a stretcher and into an ambulance. Bystanders who remained in front of Cup Foods pointed at the two officers and said the incident would haunt them “for the rest of your life.”

“The police killed him, bro, right in front of everybody,” Frazier said on Facebook. “He was crying, telling them like, ‘I can’t breathe,’ and everything. They killed this man.”

During Tuesday’s news conference with the mayor, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said he had decided to ask the FBI to investigate after receiving “additional information” on the incident from a community source that “just provided more context than the information I had preliminarily.” He declined to elaborate further.

The officers involved, who have not been publicly identified, were placed on paid administrative leave, the police chief said. The case will be separately investigated by the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune investigates most in-custody deaths.

AD

The agency said in a statement Tuesday that it would present its findings to the county prosecutor’s office for review.

As it continued circulating, the video drew swift outrage and condemnation. In neighboring St. Paul, Mayor Melvin Carter (D) said it was “one of the most vile and heartbreaking images I’ve ever seen,” adding, “This must stop now.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) described the incident as “yet another horrifying and gutwrenching instance of an African American man dying.” She called for “immediate action,” including a thorough outside investigation and accountability for those involved.

“Justice must be served for this man and his family, justice must be served for our community, and justice must be served for our country,” she said in a statement shared on Twitter.

A protest was being planned for Tuesday afternoon at the intersection where the encounter unfolded, the Star Tribune reported. The mayor urged demonstrators to practice social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, but said he understood the desire to protest.

AD

“If you’re sad, I get it,” Frey said. “If you’re angry, that makes complete sense. If you feel the need to protest, of course we want to make sure that people are able to express themselves.”

The insouciance of the cop with his knee on his neck.

All he had to do was move his knee. It wouldn't have cost him anything. Multiple people telling him that his prisoner was suffering, had a bloody nose and the pleas of not being able to breath.

Then you get the one guy taking his pulse and them dragging him to the gurney.

This is why I have shied away from watching the videos.

It literally made me pour a drink when I hadn't planned on it today. It's sickening.

I hope all four cops rot in hell. In particular the piece of shit with the knee. I hope everything bad that can happen, happens to him and his family.

I hope he gets the worst of all paper cuts, hernia, dry skin, migraines, ingrown hairs, nasal infections, impotence, testicular cancer, athlete's foot, pancreatic cancer, kidney stones, gastrointestinal rot, mud butt, gum disease, ocular degeneration and worse happens to him and his people.

Anyone that campaigned for that community during that manufactured smear campaign has to feel good about their actions now, right?

Two of the most fucked up things about this video is the police officer talking to the man as he killed him and everyone involved merely losing their jobs. No prosecution at all.

No empathy for white misery (c) BDot

I don't want to pry to hard and get into your personal details, but I'm just curious how it feels to see this incident literally spread across the country in terms of folks paying intense attention to what went down.

If me posing that question to you is off bounds, my apologies.

48. ""Cop Shoots Klansman in Suicide" (Swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


          

MUNCIE, Ind. — Sgt. William Porter, an active member of the Ku Klux Klan, was killed last night following a violent exchange with state police in what authorities ultimately deemed a suicide.

“Following an investigation, it appears that an officer was involved in a kinetic shooting event wherein a firearm in his possession was discharged,” said Millie Winitski, a spokesperson for Indiana State Police. “This caused a bullet to come into contact with the head of a klansman, who was indeed no longer alive following the event. We have concluded this was death by suicide.”

Porter’s patrol partner of 20 years Tom Huffington was heartbroken by the news about his coworker and Klan rally organizer.

“Billy was one of a kind — he may have had the same haircut, mannerisms, and outward racism as everyone else on the force, but he always stood out from the pack. It’s a tragedy when a friend and colleague dies in the line of duty,” said Huffington. “But I can take solace in the fact my brother in duty died as he lived: wielding a gun, with no regard for human life.”

Suicide among police officers is becoming surprisingly common, according to an American Sociological Association study, with steady year-on-year growth since at least 2008.

“The pressures of the job always take their toll on officers. It’s often very difficult for members of the police force to balance a life of racial violence with their duties as high ranking members of the Ku Klux Klan,” said the study’s author David Stephensen. “Some 30 percent of police officers report major anxiety or depression, and nearly all police officers say being a member of the Klan complicates their life in some way — whether it’s keeping their robes and hoods clean after it rains, or finding time to terrorize black citizens that doesn’t conflict with the police officer’s softball schedule.”

Sgt. Porter will be laid to rest at Woodlawn Cemetery with a memorial service this Saturday at 3:00 p.m., followed by a midnight cross burning in his memory at an undisclosed location in the woods outside Muncie.

What a fucking moron.

"Not dead yet !" Yea, but George Floyd is.

That dude's knee looks like a fucking elbow. And it looks like he's applying zero pressure to the neck. Not to mention if this nazi had screamed "I CAN'T BREATHE" I'd guess that his scrawny nazi friend would take his knee/elbow off his neck immediately, so.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/mississippi-mayor-under-fire-over-comments-george-floyd-s-death-n1216341?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

Mayor Hal Marx of Petal, Mississippi, said he “didn’t see anything unreasonable” in the video of George Floyd's arrest. "If you can talk, you can breathe."

“If you say you can’t breathe, you’re breathing. Most likely that man died of overdose or heart attack,” Marx wrote with no evidence, following up with another tweet that said “officers were not restricting his breathing.”

In response to the backlash, Marx defended his comments, saying, “The tolerant progressives can’t tolerate a simple statement of fact,” according to NBC Jackson affiliate WLBT.

this right here...
“I wanted to scream at the police officer to get off of him. And not just for his life, but for every black person alive who will go through another round of having to remove people in their lives who find new ways to blame a dead man or woman for their own murder. It’s frustrating. The same goes for Ahmaud Arbery. And Breonna Taylor. And countless others. Coupled with the video of Amy Cooper threatening Christian Cooper with the color of his skin—clearly knowing full well that he could end up being George Floyd— and somehow wanting the world to feel some level of empathy for her after the fact made me want to fight the air. I hate her. I hate the police officers involved in the killing of Floyd. A black man can’t do something as innocuous as watch birds without going through mental machinations. On the checklist I run through every day of all the ways I might die once I leave the house, I can honestly say, watching birds would never have made the list. Now I’ll never forget to remember that.“

why would you announce that you think evidence points to not filing a criminal charge...in the middle of a fucking riot? especially when the entire country just saw the video?

the incident just happened 3 days ago fam.

Faith has been gone. Maybe hope that someday it'll get right is fading too.

The looting is not what people should be concerned with. That's silly folks who aren't thinking about the right things.

Somebody somewhere is going to hit the 'I'm fed up with this and I'm not going to wait for them to get me too' point and somebody somewhere is going to get hurt. AKA violence. And of course, it won't change the things that need to change.

To me, we're not ready to fix this until NO ONE IS OKAY with what happened. Or at least the energy surrounding it is so strong that the news has to report it in a way that suggests almost no one being okay with it. I'm tired of having it presented like black folks carry the torch on this alone while everyone else can keep posting pictures of food and random memes online.

This is an abuse of power issue.

It is also a counting on people to care less because the dude who got killed was black issue.

But it is worse than that to me. Folks don't want to hear it, but this is also a 'if the man who got killed was a dog, more people would be more mad about it' issue. The idea that black folks have to look around and know damn well that more people would be more upset about a dog getting killed on camera is a lot. Asking people to deal with that level of disregard AGAIN is asking a lot.

I have people around me saying that they're straight up and down tired. And that's where I'm at on it too. But I'm also scared that something worse is about to go down. And soon.

They all use the same logic.

“We need to stop voting and start building together as a Black community”

Huh? Say what???

this chick i knew since i was maybe 10 or 11 hit my DMs asking why i havent posted anything on any of my socials about the shootings in the past week.

knowing damn well i will debate this shit all day IN PERSON and tie folks up in knots. and try to make change IN PERSON. feet on the ground. i see some good content online so much of what i see on social media just feels so performative and low effort and low intelligence

i salute those of you who still have the energy to argue the Walmart crowd down online because i lost it long ago. its hard to change folks minds when you cant look them in the eye

In response to Reply # 90


          

so close to each other as they are protesting is unsettling.

I get it, they are outside so they think they are safe, but just because you are outside doesn’t mean you can’t get it if you’re all up on each other, even with masks.

A lowered chance is still a chance and folks are really playing with fire, no pun intended.

I completely understand the anger and the rage but folks just have to be mindful of the fact that coronavirus is still a very real thing, police brutality or not.

In response to Reply # 107


          

been on a first name basis but they knew who each were and Chauvin probably definitely knew who Floyd.

Working security at a nightclub you’re constantly looking at and sizing everybody that comes in and out. Even other staff members, you’re thinking “if shit gets crazy, is this MF going to have my back?” Chauvin had definitely taken inventory of a 6’4-5” muscular black dude walking in and out. He knew who George Floyd was.

This is what Black Male Studies has been talking about btw. You can kill a black male on film and tell the world it was his fault. Our lives are deemed worthless and deserving of death. Our blackness + maleness is a threat that must be eradicated. Right Kimberly Foster? Right Bakari Sellers? Right Brittney Cooper?

147. "He's said that many times since he's the son of 1 &amp; cousin of 2"

He also said the original 8 black police officers in Atlanta had to get dressed in a YMCA because other police officers "didn't wanna get dressed with niggers."
This is all before the 40 second mark.

He also said the protesters aren't "ripping a son from a mother or a father from a son like the policemen did." Did you get that far? Just asking because you only commented on the first 20 seconds of the video.

Some are criticizing him for encouraging protestors to go home tho.

He said a lot of powerful stuff, but this is what got me-


>
>Some are criticizing him for encouraging protestors to go home
>tho.

And he said it standing next to police no less.

Wonder if he's heard this track cuz its pretty good-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GG8LcqR1kqw



I mean, I realized a while ago that Mike isn't the person he portrays in his raps, but urging protesters to go home was borderline heart breaking.

Then he lets himself get used by media outlets like the Today Show?

I don't know. Its getting harder and harder to listen to RTJ and not side-eye dude.

This riles up the alt right as Trump sends in the military accompanied by standing ovation from shook citizens who's watching «the radical left» go apeshit all across the country on TV and his approval rate and voter turnout skyrockets just as he was shitting the bed?

Or..?

He was fighting for his fucking life handcuffed in the backseat of a pig car while being beaten mercifully.

Police started shooting rubber bullets and teargas and protesters when the sun went down. Bunch of folks left - some more motivated folks came back.

Shot and killed outside of a bar run by a known Trump Truther / anti-LGBTQ / anti-PoC "libertarian". He had posted about having to do a "military-style" sit in at his bar just 3 hours before he shot this kid in the neck in the street and left him to die in a puddle of mud. This guy's been a known piece of shit in Omaha for nearly a decade and his bars have always had a reputation for...untoward sexual advances as well as, again, barring minorities from entry for "dress code violations".


I've seen a lot of pretty open discussion about attempting to burn the bar down this evening. State of Emergency in Omaha from 8pm-6am for 72 hours, national guard called in. All of this happening a block from where I work (somehow, despite nearly all of downtown Omaha's glass getting shattered last night, we scraped by without any damage or tagging).


This fucking YEAR, man! There's a protest at the Malcolm X House this afternoon hosted by the executives of the Malcolm X Foundation that the Chief of Police seems very supportive of, but we clearly have issues with rogue actors from out of state infiltrating these events...fingers fucking crossed man...

im surprised by the amount of time *not* spent talking about the police attacks on the press.

there were live incidents on cnn (omar jimenez) and msnbc (ali velshi) that sparked immediate discussion. but outside of that...and throughout the rest of the weekend...its not an issue thats received the amount of exploration/exposition that it deserves.

Sean Spicer, "interviewing" Trump, gently asks if the nation now needs him to do the comforting Spicer says Trump has sometimes done in private after tragedies.

Trump responds: "Right now I think the nation needs law and order."

club but supposedly "probably didn't know each other".

If you're working security at a club your main job is to know who's coming and going there.

I was wondering if George had to check dude on his racism one time or something, or if he just knew not to fuck with George because he knew he wasn't having that shit.
Add that to the fact that George had a white woman and had appeared in pr0n, you got the recipe for white male supremacist rage. If Chauvin knew solely these 2 things, he hated George with everything inside of him even if he knew nothing else about him.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

Any attempt to get his side of the story out there will either come from surrogates or people with no connection to him that just want to push an agenda (i.e. Candace Owens talking about Floyd "was no saint").

I don't know if the stories were orchestrated by the defendants or if people just made shit up, but I remember the memes about Trayvon Martin that tried to hammer home how big he was by claiming pics of The Game were actually Trayvon... or when they said Michael Brown crushed the officer's orbital bone during the fight before being shot... come to find out that you couldn't see any sign of trauma on the officer's face from the picture taking that night.

Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

And the only things he would say would hurt him.

Chauvin was their "training officer". They asked if they should turn Floyd over and he was like "nah"
