    Honestly, I'd like to see all the police bodycam videos and all the other videos to get an idea of what really happened. Ultimately, a jury or judge will decide the case based on the evidence and the law.

    At 00:56, you can see three officers holding the man on the ground. Why would they do that unless he was struggling? Why isn't the media showing us the whole video?

    I have a question in all of this crap. I have seen cops putting a knee on people like that for maybe 20 years now. Someone in law enforcement chime in. Are they taught in the academy to hold someone down that way? Are they taught that or is it like cop to cop like this works or what? Im pro cop/ law enforcement. I just wondering about that.

    Right- he was struggling for breath. Jesus Christ a blind person could see the idiocy of these 4 cops.

    Why do think three officers decided to hold the man on the ground?

    Kneeling was part of handcuffing procedures at least not too long ago.

    Total freaking bull****. Neither of these videos show someone kneeling on the neck of a defenseless handcuffed suspect for 9 minutes until the suspect was dead. Why anyone still tries to defend these 4 police idiots is beyond comprehension.

    Because the officers were morons who will spend a long stretch in jail.

    You don't think they were trying to arrest him for passing a phony $20 bill.

    Read the man's question. It was about kneeling specifically.

    Regardless of situation, you stepping in to arrest an officer in uniform is going to you peppered sprayed, tazed or shot or all of above. Your actions alone will justify anything that happens to you. You will look like an crazy mental trying to do so. We'll see how your actions will be received via the evening national news.

    There already are multiple threads talking about this incident. We do not need another.
