Thumbs down George Floyd - Excessive Force Much?

I dont need any type of lessons or replies about "not resisting arrest". What we have here is a clearly subdued suspect and blatant disregard for LIFE. And both of these shit bags will be imprisoned for their part in killing this human being....
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ents-died.html

Anyone from Minneapolis know more about this case...?

Horrible.

I'm sure the usual suspects will chime in to justify it shortly.

No justification for this when he was in handcuffs already.

I see this cop in a felony orange jumpsuit pretty soon and from what I saw thus far, rightfully so. I understand he resisted arrest but he was cuffed and not a threat to hurt officers or public and the cop seemed to enjoy grinding his knee into the arrestee neck. Pretty fucking pathetic.

The fucking cop literally did not get off the guys neck until the medics basically moved his leg so they could carry the guy away. I can't imagine anything else coming to light that would justify what's in that video.

This is America and in this country we are awarded the privilege of seeing and hearing all the evidence before declaring guilt or innocence. I’m not trying to justify anyone’s absolute guilt or innocence based on one short video but like I said, I see him arrested and charged, rightfully so. If that’s not good enough for you, so be it.

So where exactly in my post did I say the guy shouldn't have a trial or whatever you're going on about? But thanks for letting me know how the justice system works.

The video doesn't look good, but having been involved in numerous "in custody death" investigations I'll just say this. There will be a long and in-depth investigation of all aspects of this incident. I prefer to not jump to conclusion and allow the investigation and any charges to run their course in a court of competent jurisdiction.

Just so sad. Saw the article this morning. I’m surprised nobody else yelled out “you’re gonna kill him and get in trouble! Let him go!” And who the fck is the other dude in the video just saying shit like “you can’t win man. Just move. Get in the car.” Dude do you not see him being pin down and you’re just trying to get some brownie points with the cops? Come on man!

Your response to my initial post speaks for itself.

What's also sad is that you both agree with one another but still feel the need to argue. Pretty much sums up the state of this forum.

Dude, that was my initial thought. I'm thinking to myself wtf is this guy going on about... I pretty much agreed with him and said the exact same thing. Thought maybe I was the only one who was seeing this.

Spending too much time in the Politics subforum fucks with your head.

To be honest, I was surprised N54's post was so aligned with my thoughts (usually I disagree). Then I did read your post as argumentative. Just an outside perspective, but we all agree. This is not ok and I dont foresee anything coming out that makes it any less terrible

I guess we'll see what happens as everything comes to light. The video taken by itself is certainly infuriating. But I think they said they were getting the body cams too so that should be interesting as well to corroborate.

I really don't understand racism. There's good and bad people of every ethnicity... This cop kneeling on a guys neck with his hands in his pockets? And the guy was handcuffed... And he had his partner with him...

I mean, it doesn't seem like there's going to be much of a case for the officer if hes whistling while slowly killing the dude. The guy could have resisted earlier, he could have rightfully put him in his place but damn, that seems completely unnecessary IMO.

Very disturbing video.
I'm basically looking at a man slowly getting killed....
Why place him in that position when he's already cuffed etc.
Unbelievable.

4 Officers have been TERMINATED! So that is a good start. I commend the police Chief and Mayor for swift action. And now hopefully the trial and guilty verdict will be just as fast...

That is exactly what I saw as well... A officer/person taking pleasure in the suffering and eventual Death of a fellow human being. SMFH
