    Cariol Horne a female officer from Buffalo NYPD STOPS her partner from choking a handcuffed gentleman and gets fired with no pension after 20 years of service. Later the violent officer gets in trouble for a similar related offence, goes to prison and will get pension when he is released. Good cop now a bus driver and gets evicted from apartment for non payment…:(

    *BOTTOM LINE:*

    When he said “I CAN’T BREATHE…” the “officer” should have let up. PERIOD.

    George was not a threat (at least at that point & time.) We could’nt see the footage like she said, of how he got on the ground, but I still don’t think he was a threat.

    He was handcuffed & surrounded by FOUR “trained officers.”

    It is truly a tragedy but we don’t have enough good informations about what happened between the moment when they arrested him and the moment he died. A lot of people are just assuming that the police officer is a racist murderer. We don’t have enough evidences to state something like that.

    The black car didnt leave FYI….take a closer look reporters….they did a U turn…and stayed and filmed the entire incident. Looks like another Antifa set up gone wrong to me…burglary and counterfeit are not ok…neither is resisting arrest. The cops were doing their job and sometimes someone is unhealthy or jacked up on drugs and/or alcohol and they may die in a position that only 1/million would die in because of their preexisting condition/situation. Police protect us, thank you officers, and our country would be a 3rd world country Blowing peoples heads off of it wasn’t for them protecting us…so back off since you weren’t there. There are millions of black white brown and yellow people that die every year while breaking the law and sometimes not even breaking the law but the odds are much higher that things will go wrong if you break the law. Gods plan is always perfect and we should learn and move forward in love for eachother

    4 of the seven dwarfs couldn’t even arrest 1 man properly so they lied on his neck and killed him.. this is why police should be over 6ft instead of hiring racist midgets with little man syndrome

  59. 45.is.a .puppet.2016 Reply

    This seems suspicious as all heck. Why drag him al the way to the other cop car to begin with. Why not the one that’s right there. Why did they have to pin him down to the ground if they claim he was having a medical issue when he first dropped. Those cops looked like they were waiting for something while he was pinned down. Keep in mind normally they wait for backup so that they can hand cuff the person but the guy was hand cuffed earlier and the report says that the hand cuffs never came off. And finally we now know that George Floyd used to work with two of these cops from before they were cops. They didn’t act like they knew each other at all but there is now proof that the they had previously met multiple times. WTF?

  60. Ger Woo Reply

    The video of George Floyd’s murder is beyond shocking and disturbing but should be watched by everyone. We are actually watching the slow torture and murder of an innocent man by a sadistic thug in a uniform. The thug in the uniform (I won’t even call him by his name) is actually moving his knee as he applies his full body weight to Georges’s neck to gain the maximum effect ..This is so shocking and disgusting..I’m almost in tears here.. We protested here in London yesterday..The whole world is watching this ..Thank God for social media and camera phones. now the REAL truth will come out in the open.

    That now concludes our training video on how to properly arrest a single individual who’s already hand-cuffed by 4 officers. Next we will learn how to use an armored truck for a wellness check of an 80 year old great grandmother who bakes cookies.

  70. Jonathan Gibson Reply

    So.. I gotta say, police are trained to pin someone down and cuff them, but they are trained to pin them down with their knees on their back. So, how has it come where these officers pin the man down with force on his neck for over 8 mins. That right there is clearly a problem and the officer, that is no longer an officer should definitely be charged with something that is much higher than 3rd degree murder that you have never even heard spoken in Law & Order shows c’mon. I’d say it’s probably a stretch to get 1st degree, as I doubt that it was premeditated… if it was then, this guy should be looked into for just about everything he has been involved in, but definitely he should be charged with 2nd degree murder, 1st degree manslaughter and I’m sure there are a few other charges that he should be catching that the District Attorney hasn’t bothered to charge him or the others with.

    This seriously disgusts me how immoral the people that you expect to protect and serve can let that power go to their head and take a life just like that, while they claim he was resisting arrest.. if he was resisting anything, it was death that he was resisting.

    In this already horrible 2020 these officers have tarnished it even further.

    Our thoughts and prayers from Canada to the Floyd family in this horrible horrible time, I hope justice will be served properly
