Is there any doubt the Minneapolis Police Union is going to back their boy until the bitter end?

the guy would have been better off not resisting people need to be educated the virtues of not resisting seems simple enough or the dude had issues ...drugs/booze/ mental illness....who knows...no proof that this cop killed him....wait for medical examiner report

I'm not sure if this is the same video I saw or if there is a longer one that shows the beginning but why does that officer just sit there calmly and let him die? This is seriously one of the worst ones I've ever seen if not the worst. Shooting scenarios take split second decisions, this officer consciously made the decision over and over for minutes while he died a slow sh!tty death.

I agree. It reminds me a lot of the guy in NY who was arrested for selling cigarettes. This guy was being arrested for forgery? Seems like this kind of arrest tactic should be reserved for violent criminals. I will say, the people shouting at the cops probably had the opposite effect than intended, and put the cops on the defensive to where they probably didn't want to stop and be seen as encouraging the onlookers, not that it's a defense.
Gonna be some riots over this for sure.

But even in that one he was continually resisting, the cop put him in a choke hold and it was faster IIRC. This one literally happened over minutes and the cop was just kneeling there calm and collected letting it happen. Like at some point woulnd't you think "oh he stopped moving and his eyes are closed maybe he's not faking it?".

Agree with this. He should’ve gotten up when the guy starting going unconscious. I don’t think the tactics to subdue him were wrong, just held it too long. The guy could breathe though. You can’t talk if you can’t breathe. He may very well have cut his circulation off, which would cause him to pass out. An autopsy will be required to determine the cause of death. I’d be a little nervous if I were that cop though.

Yes. He's cuffed. Let off a bit, and see if he continues to struggle and resist. What took so long? Obviously this is just a ridiculous situation. But MPLS is gonna MPLS.

I find it funny when leftists feel this way. And I like you Minnesota, but cops are the enforcement arm of the state. Maybe stop giving the state so much power? Maybe stop arguing to give cops a monopoly on the use force? Maybe stop passing so many laws?

I agree across the board, but I’m not a typical Democrat. We have different ideas of what giving the state too much power is, but I won’t muddy this thread up with it. I think militarization of the police in this country is a huge issue.

I see a protest is planned, but hopefully no riots. Frey, Walz, and the FBI have responded, so hopefully that quells some of the anger.

There is just a gigantic public disconnect between police procedure and public understanding. That's really the main reason for all the public anger on these topics. And probably because the public has simultaneous competing goals. And also the patriot act and 9/11 changes to law enforcement. "Safety" is really the problem behind lots of this stuff.

Awful stuff. Even while the legal process plays out, they should be terminated ASAP.

Did you not read my post to see that you were wrong? You're like Krusty the Clown betting on the Generals. I thought they were due!

Of course it is.

But, the guy killed him with his knee. He didn't even have a military knee pad.

There's not a lot to destroy on that corner. There's a minority owned grocery store, a minority owned restaurant, a national chain gas station, and an African-American church.

Now if they start marching down Chicago towards downtown, that would be something.

I can't see how they won't be placed on leave. I don't think more can legally done beyond that, with the union labor deal in place. But maybe I'm wrong.
