    edit: I saw the longer clip, ok, no defense... horrible. The guy stops moving entirely and the cop persists. That's absolutely ridiculous. **** that cop.

    He needs to be locked up and arguably charged with murder.

As is usually the case, I'm sure it's not that simple... BUT when someone is erratically resisting arrest, which we can't tell whether George Floyd did or did not based on this clip, then yeah... shit is going to happen that puts the suspect in a bad position, such as this. They're going to have to be restrained with extreme force such as this because if they aren't they can continue to resist and cause major problems.

    We don't know if he was crazily resisting or not based on the video, but that's likely the case.

    It's extremely, extremely, extremely improbable that the cop just randomly decided to stop Mr. Flord and then Mr. Floyd proceeded to act calmly and rationally and the cop put him on the ground and put a knee in his neck. We all know it's pretty much a guarantee that reality did not unfold that way.

    It's very likely that Mr. Floyd resisted arrest and had to be subdued using extreme measures.

    If you resist arrest violently enough in terms of your physical thrashing about, you ARE going to get restrained in a VERY unpleasant if not life threatening manner. Cops aren't going to wrestle you down in a fair manner. And that's perfectly ok. Anyone that wants to argue that a cop should wrestle someone with that person's physical safety in mind when that person is resisting like crazy... well, they're living in fantasy land. That being said, the cop should have picked a different spot other than the neck. That's not the only place he could have put his weight.

    But at the end of the day, we can't/don't know for sure without some eye witness testimony and or a video of the entire incident as to whether or not the officer's actions were completely over the top or not.
    true but seems a little too much in the vid, no?

    this is criminal neglect

    Resisting arrest does not allow you kill somebody while spectators are begging you to spare his life.

    it's legit murder... give the cop the death penalty and give the little asian cop 20 years for not doing anything to stop that corrupt cop.

    Easy for us to say from our living room arch chairs.

    In those situations, adrenaline and testosterone are flowing. Think about how often fights break out in sports. And this is times 100. Youre pissed off, youre riled up, youre frustrated. “But but but cops have a higher responsibility to uphold my fairy tale ideals and not act the way humans are wired to act blah blah.

    Yeah, well, go ahead and start an altercation with a cop and let me know how that works out for you. But dont expect my sympathy.

    Not speaking from a legal standpoint on this particular incident. Just in generality.

    Also, the other officer should be charged as an accessory and stripped also.

    Sorry... watched the video once, and will not watch it again...

    The pig needs to fry on that one.

    Terrorists get better treatment than this. Just unacceptable any way you look at it.

    Even still the neck is extreme... particularly for the prolonged period ESPECIALLY considering the dude straight up stopped moving... but yeah... another situation of everyone involved being absolute ****ing retards.
