Minneapolis PD flat out murdered a handcuffed man in broad daylight as spectators looked on and filmed the incident.

If these police officers are bold enough to act in this manner when they know they are being recorded, I can't help but wonder how they conduct themselves when they aren't being recorded.

This incident took place Monday night (25th) and already 4 officers have been fired as of Tuesday the 26th.

I believe there should be 1st degree homicide charges filed.


Video of the incident can be found on youtube for those that haven't seen it yet.

Pretty shocking.

They also had him pinned down right by the exhaust of the cruiser. I am sure there will be a bunch of negative leaks about the victim. The police in many places are out if control.

Another one of those situations where the cops wanted to slam some guy's face into the ground, and when the guy put his hands down to keep from having his skull crushed, the cops jumped on his back because "they didn't know what he was reaching for down there."
I've heard that some cops get tazed in highly controlled environments to make sure they don't crack their skull when they hit the ground. I'd like to see them experience what it's like to have their face slammed into the asphalt and then have three or four 300lb guys jump on their neck.

Once he was cuffed not sure why they couldn't have just put him in the cruiser. Kneeling on the neck for 5 minutes or whatever it was seemed pretty unnecessary. I think they'll definitely face murder/manslaughter charges given the public reaction but I doubt any convictions will come about cause that's usually how these things go.

Watching the video of the police killing a restrained man, about made me sick..
..Yeah, for me it was more :mad::mad::mad: - Honestly, had I Been there, I don't think I would have been able to 'restrain myself' from charging-up / yanking that cop Off his neck.. And, sure - I definitely would have gotten Tazered (or probably worse..) but.. At Some point, ya Have to just 'jump into the risk' to help others, and as former EMT, there's just No Way in hell I could have just 'stood there and watched', just.. No way.. :mad:

Thank you Minneapolis PD. Exactly what we need with everything else that's going on.

For those that aren't aware...the dude could breathe just fine. That was what's known as a blood choke. The carotid arteries are on either side of the neck. Exactly where that murdering cop had his knee planted for five minutes.

I'm surprised the guy stayed conscious as long as he did. I've been choked out while rolling and lemme tell ya.. blood chokes will put you out in a hurry.

I don't condone rioting but in a case like this I sure understand it

Whenever you’re in a confrontation with LEOs you need to control the situation by coming across as compliant, friendly and non threatening. You have no way of knowing whether that LEO is a nice guy or a complete psycho. You have to de-escalate.

Not sure what this guy did, if anything, but he encountered a psycho and no matter if those cops are charged now, he is dead. There is no come back from that.

Keep cool, smile and de-escalate.

It's my understanding that the suspect was resisting arrest but he was handcuffed. Why not just wire tie his ankles and then get off his neck? what is he going to do? Make his getaway by rolling down the street?

I'm sorry, I am usually pro LEOs but this appears to be over the top and if we are getting the correct story, this is criminal and needs to be prosecuted.

No, he resisted arrest in the video I linked
Before anything you have seen
Ergo your post
I agree with your comments, but watch the video I linked
It does not negate what you are saying
But gives you all the facts

The police in the US are trained to go too far in most situations.

This is what we get. This is what we deserve. When we decide we have the guts to start dealing with the people in charge the right way, it’ll stop. Until then, enjoy watching **** like this.

I'll wait until we hear the full story before I pass judgement. There is more to this story than what we know right now. Was he trying to bite the cops? Was he spitting at them? Was he unusually strong when he resisted arrest?

If you ever saw the full version of the Rodney King video (I only saw it one time) that was used in court, it tells a very different story than the edited version the media used. The cops were attacked by King, who was a very big guy, and who appeared to be intoxicated. He refused to stay down. They did follow proper protocol to subdue him. And there were no broken bones, as his attorney claimed.

Remember the way the media portrayed the hands-up, don't shoot Michael Brown story? Witnesses told a very different story than the media and Black Lives Matter.

The video makes it look like the cops were torturing George Floyd, but did they continue to subdue him because he continued to resist?
