George Floyd death: Pressure mounts for US officers to be charged

Anger is spreading in the US over the death of an unarmed Black man after a white police officer knelt on his neck while restraining him on the ground in the city of Minneapolis.
As new video of the incident emerged that showed George Floyd was not resisting arrest as originally claimed, the lawyer for his family has spoken of a “pandemic of racism”.
Protesters demanding justice for George Floyd have come out in their hundreds in downtown Los Angeles, blocking parts of a freeway and surrounding Highway Patrol cars.
The protests are now into their second day.

    Why looting the shops? Only enhancing the sterotypes.

    • Kai Huang says:

    • G F says:

      Yeah I know all those WHITE males out there setting fires and looting is crazy.

  • poinked says:

    citizens must pressure the govt to get the four of them charged?? WTF they should be charged instantly and sentenced

  • Tammy Brighton says:

    Murderers!!!!

  • davidogan says:

    He was merely suspected of handling a counterfeit $20 bill which is probably a false charge as well. With the way they treated him, you’d think he just shot a dozen people. Totally disgusted!

  • Aminul Islam says:

    Don’t worry my brother, corona viruses has been finishing them, if you percentage pass away white people more died of the corona virus. US stupid country that do not take care black people and it is long history Martin Luther King was seen that.

    • arif jau says:

    • Abdure Graphics & Design says:

      Islam said “kill every person who kill some one “

    • Forrest Gump says:

      @Abdure Graphics & Design AN EYE FOR AN EYE AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH

    • Andrew Berkant says:

      They were handed a paid leave at first but the people started protesting. The police officers got fired afterwards.There was a similar incident in NYC. The police officers were kept at their jobs. Finally, one of them was fired after five years. None of them were arrested or jailed. I am a caucasian person but it’s true that if someone is black, he will be targeted by cops more often than a caucasian person. I have been watching some incidents where the cops act like tugs, shooting or arresting blacks in their homes or in public places without any evidence that the individuals have involved in any sort of crimes.

    • sheldon pereira says:

      @Forrest Gump the whole saying is leaves the world blind and toothless

  • Abuubakar Juma says:

  • tatiana vera says:

    Looting in America

  • Francesca says:

    Rest in peace big man. I hope this is the last time a policeman feels entitled not to listen the prayers of someone in custody. This is a pure homicide to me because we all know that even an healthy human being can die when kept like that.

    • MR K says:

      we know it wont be the last time.. it is dangerous be a non-white person in this country

    • Francesca says:

      @MR K in Italy 3 young white men died by the hands of policemen. One was killed the same way as George. He’s called Andrea Mogherini. People was filming and screamed, asking to stop putting their feet on his body. He said “please, i can’t breath, i am a dad” and they didn’t stop. Andrea only had a panic attack and he was escaping something, he needed help but he ended up killed in few minutes like George. In the case of George the policeman was clearly doing a sadistic action and luckily his face was caught by the video. I know that in the US prisons there are many innocent black men locked for years and this is very sad.

  • no hatred says:

  • 2gointruth With Good News of The True Gospel says:

    “If you have ears to hear: then hear.” – (Jesus the Messiah, at Mark 4: 9) –

    “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” – (Jesus, at John 4: 24) –

    “In truth I tell you, anyone who gives heed to what I say and puts his trust in him who sent me, has hold of eternal life and does not come up for judgement, but has already passed from death to life.” – (at John 5: 24) –

    With regard to all the many wayward priests, pastors and preachers of all religions, including the Pope and Christianity that are now rife among us, Jesus already warned us to beware of them all, almost 2,000 years ago…

    “Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (at Matthew 7: 15-16) –

    “Any plant that is not of my heavenly Father’s planting will be rooted up. Leave them alone; they are blind guides, and if one blind man guides another they will both fall into the ditch.” – (Matthew 15: 13-14) –

    “Do not call any man on earth ‘father’; for you have one Father and he is in heaven. Nor must you be called ‘teacher’; you have one Teacher, the Messiah.” – (Matthew 23: 9-10) –

    “I am the light of the world. No follower of mine shall wander in the dark; he shall have the light of life.” – (Jesus, at John 8: 12) –

    “Take care that no one misleads you: For many will come claiming my name…”
    – (Matthew 24: 4) –
    “Many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many; and as lawlessness spreads, men’s love for one another will grow cold. But the man who holds out to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the earth as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.” – (Matthew 24: 11-14) –

    “You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – (John 8: 32) –

    “When you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you.
    In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.
    Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him.
    This is how you should pray:
    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
    Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,
    Give us today our daily bread,
    Forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
    And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.
    For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever.
    Amen.
    For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (Matthew 6: 6-15) –

    “Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged. For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you.” – (Matthew 7: 1-2) –

    “Truly I tell you; if anyone obeys my teaching he shall never know what it is to die.” – (John 8: 51) –

    “Is there a man among you who will offer his son a stone if he asks for bread or a snake when he asks for fish? If you then, bad as you are, know how to give your children what is good for them, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him!
    Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.
    Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” – (Matthew 7: 9-14) –

    “I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe. He shall go in and out and shall find pasturage.
    The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.” – (John 10: 9-10) –

    “I am the resurrection and I am life. If a man has faith in me, even though he dies, he shall come to life; and no one who is alive and has faith shall ever die.” – (John 11: 25-26) –

    “I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world” – (John 12: 47) –
    “Whoever then will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) –

    “I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) –

    “The disciples came and asked Jesus, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
    If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, It would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
    Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –

    “Though many are called, few are chosen.” – (Matthew 22: 14) –

    “An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.
    Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’” – (Matthew 22: 35-40) –
    “There is no greater love than this, that a man should lay down his life for his friends.” – (John 15: 13) –

    “My task is to bear witness to the truth. For this I was born; for this I came into the world, and all who are not deaf to truth listen to my voice.” – (Jesus, the Messiah, at John 18: 37) –

    “One of the criminals who hung there also mocked and taunted him: ‘Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself, and us!’ But the other criminal rebuked him. ‘Have you no fear of God? You are under the same sentence as he. For us it is plain justice; we are paying the price for our misdeeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.’ And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ He answered, “I tell you this: today you shall be with me in Paradise.’” – (Luke 23: 39-43) –

    “For it is my Father’s will that everyone who looks upon the Son and puts his faith in him shall possess eternal life; and I will raise him up on the last day” – (John 6: 40) –

    Yours always, in true Spirit and in our one given prayer, 2gointruth, Thursday the 28th of May, 2020: – (Matthew 5:14-16) – Where every minute (of both day and night) can be a new beginning for any one of us. Let it always be you.

    There has to be a change in this country when it comes to accountability of our police department’s worldwide.This has been going on in almost every state if not all states in this nation. To much power is given within these department’s and to the police officers to the point that they are abusing it in ever way they can and getting by with it. We the people will not stand by and be ruled by a police state and watch our love ones continue being murdered by a bunch of power hungry unlawful,illegal bunch of police officers. It is time to change this and hold accountable those in position of power to their wrongful deeds.

    It’s not about race, it’s all about these laws that protect law enforcement and judges. They want to call this race related but that’s to take your off law enforcement as a hole. Congress and state legislatures must enact stiff laws against law enforcement officers and judges to justly protect the people. Innocent people going jail, police killing citizens, and judges opinionating everything. It’s got STOP. Why is the judicial branch of our government has more power than any other branch and does what they want to. And these prosecutors they are terrible. Police unions are socialists. Fight back American citizens, fight back. This is a nation of the PEOPLE and not a nation of a tyrannical judicial government.
