‘I can’t Breathe’ (Sensitive Content)

Those are the words uttered by a man pinned by his neck to the ground by a police officer in Minneapolis.

What is the sadly unsurprising element to this case? It’s a white cop, pinning a black man to the floor, pressing his knee to the man’s neck. The police force themselves said there is an investigation regarding a man’s ‘medical distress’ – oh really? I wonder why that is…

Once again there is the situation where a black person has died because of police actions. Once again, questions must be asked about this systemic racism within the US police forces. Is there ever a need for that kind of application of force? Surely common sense should kick in and tell you that applying pressure to a man’s airway can have deadly consequences?

Will anything change? Well, let’s spread this far and wide, get attention to this latest act of brutality. Make it something the police cannot evade and hide from.

  1. Gotta love how you motherfuckers make this issue about race. It’s bullshit no matter the race of the people involved . But willing to bet you leftists would not say shit or even cheer it on if it was a black cop and white man who was killed with a knee to the neck. Why not address this as a bad cop thing not a race thing but hey that is just some evil mans opinion

      1. Not a troll . this does not need to be turned into a race thing , I its a bad cop doing something fucked up that cop should be charged with murder . If I was a bystander I’d be tempted to shoot that pos cop . More than likely I would try and knock him off that man . All that evil needs to continue is for good people to do nothing shame on the bystanders for not taking action. Bet your effeminate ass would do nothing to help that man .

      2. You’re definitely a troll. It’s obviously a racial matter. Do you think this cop would have acted that way with a white guy? We both know that’s bullshit, and you’re trying to sell me bullshit and pass it off as roses. I also very much doubt you’d take any action whatsoever.

      3. I think shitty cops do shitty things to civilians so no it not a race matter its a shitty cop matter. Yeah I’d not do anything because watching a cop unjustly kill a man is something I’d enjoy . You are being the pos leftist shitheel now . everything with you is race or gender …. Bet it make you just so happy to talk about this if it was a black woman or trans so you could push more feminist bullshit . Because leftist creed of never waste a tragedy . Admit shitty cops exist and do fucked up shit to people of all races .

      4. You’re an ignorant fool Asher, if you genuinely believe a white cop would kneel on a black man’s neck, causing his death, and you believe race has nothing to do with it. That’s why you’re desperately trying to distract from the obvious with all the pointless, misleading filler you inject into your posts. Do you ever grow tired of being so dishonest?

      5. You act as if this cop only did this because of racism. I say that he was a shitty cop. But you far left activists seem to hate any cop who enforces any law on a non white person. What that cop did was vile his fellow officers should have removed him from that mans neck and taken him into custody for the alleged forgery case that started this whole shit storm . Sorry our cop do no live up to high standards of weak ass UK police letting Muslim rape gangs rape white girls because threats of being called racist

      6. You so far haven’t bothered to consider what actually happened. Do you think this cop would have done this to a white person? How many cases exist of white cops killing unarmed white people, compared to the number of cases of unarmed black people getting killed? He didn’t enforce the law (why do you insist on inserting bullshit like ‘not wanting the laws enforced?), he killed a guy, callously! Open your eyes and stop being moronic.

      7. Yes I think that shitty cop that day would have done the same to a white man . Well since cases of unarmed white men getting killed by cops is not reported in the news for some reason… I am unsure how the numbers compare . Some cases of a cop killing a unarmed black person or hell white person might be do to that person resisting arrest or them attempting to get the officers weapon maybe be less quick to judge police when they take actions you do not know the whole story of but hey leftists just hate all cops especially ones here in America . I do not like most laws police are told to enforce. Hell I am not even very pro cop Think they overreact more often than not do to how they are trained . But rioting and destroying your town to protest bad cops is not gonna make things better. bet you think the violent riots because of this are justified? Vandalising cop cars chanting death to police or no justice no peace kill the police is a great way to make police not wanna deal with you reasonably

      8. Do you have even the slightest bit of common sense? There is no reason to believe that cop would have done that to a white person. Nor does calling out police violence against POC make someone ‘anti-cop’. It does mean that when little or no action gets taken in these circumstances (the cop who committed this murder has not even been charged), people get angry. I don’t condone rioting, but I can understand it. A bunch of white people stormed government buildings, armed to the teeth, and got right into the faces of police to rant and rave. No incidents. A black person goes jogging and gets confronted and killed, and it takes weeks before anything meaningful happens.

      9. reason it actually took months was the accused had ties to the DA office and police so impartial investigation was not really possible. That man was confronted for trespassing on a construction property . Came out the cops told the property owner to contact the 2 men who shot the jogger about the break ins / trespassing. Also he got shot while trying to wrestle the shotgun away from one of the men . now nobody is in the right here. Its again fucked up but play shitty games like trespassing then trying to wrestle a shotgun away from someone you might get shot and die. I know you think no person here in America should be allowed to own or carry a gun for personal protection but hey our laws are more liberty loving than the UK bullshit

      10. Here’s a thought. The two vigilantes would never have acted if that jogger had been white. If they *had* acted, an investigation would have happened quicker. If they hadn’t have gotten into their truck to drive after him, he would not have died. So it’s not his fault, it’s the fault of a pair of idiot racists. I love how you misrepresent my gun position BTW. You thrive on dishonesty.

      13. No you just think certain guns should be banned and stolen from their owners you think more extensive regulations on gun ownership should exist to the point of being able to own one is nearly impossible like in the UK . America has the right to bear arms in our founding document you will never be able to change our laws on ownership without fundamentally changing our bill of rights call the Second Amendment into question might as well scarp the whole bill of rights and start over with a more leftist bent .

      14. Again you distort. However I would ask, in the wake of consistent failures of existing US gun laws, why continue to do the same thing over and over again? How often has thoughts and prayers actually changed the on-going mass shooting narrative? Why is it that guns account for two-thirds of US murders, year after year after year?

      15. What the fuck ever you will not be happy until America is as strict on gun and liberty as the UK it seems . I would make many gun laws null and void . only violent felons and the verifiable mentally ill violent people would be disallowed from own / carrying guns . Hell wanna own a cannon or a tank fine by me have fun don’t hurt nobody wanna own a full auto machine gun have fun at the range with it cowboy .

      16. The UK is not strict on liberty. The fact that you think only deadly weapons can bring freedom is a bad sign of your unhinged mindset. You didn’t address anything I mentioned – why are guns accounting for two thirds of US murders, why does the US account for virtually all mass shootings?

      20. States in the US with more robust gun control laws are often among the safest ones. I wonder why that is, as opposed to your ‘relax all rules’ policy? You ever stopped to wonder why the combined murder rates of the UK, Australia, Japan and Germany are lower than the US murder rate?

      21. Lots of factors play into it population culture . Yeah tell that to Chicago and Detroit 2 of the most strict on guns cities in their states. murder rates near the top of the list . most of the gun fatalities come from gang on gang violence or from the mentally defected using a illegal gun

      22. So all states should pretty much put a thousand hurdles ahead of a gun owner to purchase or carry their gun? Have you ever tried to get a gun in either place? I tried in Detroit was not that easy nor cheap . Makes getting a gun illegally to some seem reasonable

People meaning to do harm would do so even if there were no guns look at the stabbing and truck attacks in other countries by the mentally ill violent fucks who do them. You can not lay the deaths of those killed by mass shooters at the feet of anyone but those who do them . You know fuck all about guns the culture around them nor the fun of going to a range and letting off some steam . Shooting is fun owning guns is a right you and your lik can pry the guns from gun owners from our cold death hands but wear gloves as our barrels will be hot from defending our rights from fucks like you who want to disarm us

      27. Are you that ignorant? No one is a bad guy when they buy a gun, they only become bad when they misuse them right? That’s why the Las Vegas shooter was able to legally buy several assault weapons, without it flagging anywhere. You seem to think this is absolutely fine, and you are blind to the problem.
