I Can't Breathe: The Senseless Killing of George Floyd

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Flames ripped through a Minneapolis police station in Minnesota and seven protesters were shot in Kentucky as unrest spread across the United States over the deaths of black people during police encounters.

Thousands joined the protests in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which were triggered by the Monday death of 46-year-old George Floyd after being arrested on suspicion of using a counterfeit banknote.

There is no difference between black, white, and brown cops as far as power of badge, authority and abuse in uniform are concerned. Look at the brown cops of Ph, violators of quarantine protocols are being arrested, hurt, shot dead, whereas, cops (generals & senator) are let loose from punishment!

The DDS are offended coz we make it seem like they have no right to call out injustices. Ahm, yes… As enablers of an oppressor, wala kayong karapatan. Either you wake up or pretend you’re neutral, then try again.

May it be intentional excessive harrasnent on a colored guy, the cops of Minneapolis are just like our Philippine police - Abusive of their authority.

The white Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck was arrested and charged with murder. Let him go to prison, together with the other three police officers.  I am sure that whatever jail they will be sent to, the black community in that jail are all waiting to welcome them.

Butwe all know that just like in the Philippines, these cops will just be reinstated and assigned somewhere else after when everything goes silent.

Minneapolis police officer at the center of George Floyd's death had been with the department since 2001. During his career, he was the subject of a dozen police conduct complaints; he was never disciplined, records show.

Theres always a collateral damage in the middle of a war.. Blame it to the leaders who tolerated drugs during their regime and not the one who fought against it.

There are so many unfortunate examples of police brutality. This one, however, was one of, if not the most, heinous displays to date. It is not just that this officer decided to execute a man on the street by choking the life out of him with a knee crushing his neck, which should be enough on its own. 

What is even more nauseating is the systematic racism that is so evident here. The other officer turns his back on a murder in progress because the murderer is his partner. And this is no spontaneous reaction on the part of the murderer. It is a cold slow-motion execution, with on lookers passionately pleading for the man’s life. 

A person doesn't often just snap and become a violent individual, but rather a steady growing unchecked  violence leads to incidents like this. Check his record and his background personal life, I bet he is and has been a violent person for a long time. And the other officers either also are violent, or so indoctrinated to cover their kind that they participated in this tragedy. They ALL 4 MUST be charged.
