George Floyd was murdered by the police.
He kept screaming 'and the cop who was kneeling - yes kneeling - on his neck / throat had his hands in his pockets as he did so.
This is brutal. This is against training guidelines
This is murder.

John Bellamy Comments: It takes quite a lot to shock me these days.
I have lived. Oh how I have lived.
And I have partied, long and hard.
I have travelled, read, studied, become someone I would respect and I value life, death and the universe and above all, I believe in love. Love for my fellow man, For my country. For all different cultures, colours, religions and even hair colour. I may be a bit of a mad thing, but I do believe we all have a right to freedom, to safety and to a rule of law that is honest and fair for everyone. Compromise of course has to be made by us all as no law will cover every situation and every cultural difference, and we all make compromise and accept.
Where things do not work or where things are unjust, then I believe we all have the right to demonstrate and put our point of view, insist our voice and our choices are heard and demand change.
This is every living persons right as a human being.
Nothing gives another the right to hold power over another.
Tell that to the dynastic families who rule, who govern, who own and who boast - and who bully and coerce and demand and who create wars just to get what they want, and we the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free, - the wretched refuse of our teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door and where we shall screw them all into submission. Give me your tired and your poor so we can get cheap labour and take advantage - MASSIVELY take advantage, of the under classes, yearning to simply breath free and have some kind of happiness and comfort in their lives from all the hard work they have put in so someone else can get rich while you grow old and die.
And few will know or care.
America. When you peel away the vaneer of democracy, you see it is nothing of the sort. It is a bully boy regime and - basically - has been for a very long time. Land of the Free - what a fucking joke that it.
Giving people a choice between 2 corrupt politicians - 2 corrupt systems - both as corrupt as each other - is not a choice and so therefore, is not the Land of the Free... it is the Land of the Bully - who will cheat and lie and murder and show so little compassion, it beggars belief and now, even China is laughing at how scared the Big Boss was when a riot he caused gets a little close to home so, off with the lights, let's all go hide in the basement. WTF ?
America is the world biggest problem these days.
Not North Korea
Not the Sudan
