Not this time!
straight up murder.
Fired for later quiet rehire, or actual fired?
OK, whats the whole story? How did he end up on the ground?
Now they are just regular peasants. No longer members of the praetorian guard. Will have to defend themselves for their own safety.
Hope some big fat guy from the hood is able to step on their neck. That’s true justice.
I hope these worthless jack booted thugs hang. Out and out murdered that poor guy. He was calling for his mom while he was being killed by these P.O.S.
I’m not banking on any real justice though. They will all lie.
Let's have a parade or some other kind of acknowledgment of all of our first responders.
Was he resisting arrest? Was he asked to put his hands behind his back or on his head?
That was fast.
Fired very quickly. Took the Somali piece-of-garbage 90 days. Just sayin’
Based on some videos I’ve seen, probably both ... at the same time.
Dont you think it might be a good idea to wait for all of the facts to be released before calling police officers jack-booted thugs? The police arrest criminals. Thats there job. The fact that 4 cops had to be involved obviously suggests that the deceased resisted arrest. Was he violent? If you resist arrest than you put your life and the cops life in danger.
Not you again.
It doesesnt matter why he was tossed, cop knelt on his neck and killed him.
you have lost any and ALL credibility with a statement like that and proven yourself to be a frigen rasist POS
Bottom line...this covid power kick is making everybody crazy
No ass hole look at the flick
It appears to be a particularly egregious massively inappropriate use of force.
They were telling him to get up and get in the car while one of them still had his knee on the guy’s neck/head.
Bloomington will hire them.
The video is be shown and watched by millions, as they should. With the cop putting 220 lbs of weight on his left knee kneeling on the mans neck, the cop knew he was killing the suspect. What that cop did to that suspect is the same thing you do to a horse to keep it from getting up.
When the suspect relieved himself during the video, I knew he had died. His urine is visible running across the sidewalk and the other cops should have known the suspect had died but did nothing to correct the situation. This video should be an easy conviction of the cops involved with 20 years minimum incarceration. I lived in Minneapolis for six months and am glad I left. Worst people with authority in the country live in that city.
