This lady is balding and it comes from stress of lying her whole career.
This lady doesn't have a clue…..
Criminals are getting so bold, I don't feel safe anymore. When we blame police when someone doesn't comply…stupid.
In a perfect world a Felon with an open warrant for committing aggravated robbery and their Mother and Father know of the warrant, would turn their son in. Also when the person is stopped by police, and being handcuffed they should not fight with police putting the officers and the public in danger if he either went in the car for a gun or led police on a high speed chase.
Yes and in a perfect world US capital police should not shoot and kill unarmed protesters and not be named, let alone not even charged.
Do you hear that she don’t say about stuff and put your knee on their neck anyway they throw them on the ground what do you need a hand if a guy and then throw them on the ground to specially when they’re not scuffling most of them don’t scuffle after your hand careful but they don’t say a damn thing about that they need a better way to handcuff them too because some people it hurts their shoulders because if they got rotary cups out that really hurts I know my Rotary clubs are out if I just put my arm behind me it hurts like hell so something should be done about different handcuffing and keep the hands in front put some kind a chain around their waist and handcuffed her that
Nobody saying a thing about the difference of the weight and a pistol phasers are not anywhere near the weight of a pistol specially when it’s loading the feeling is different the trigger pull it is even harder so I don’t think she meant to but I don’t think she couldn’t distinguish the pistol from a taser I’m sure she’s Hannaford taser before plus your pistol is she said target training so there is a real question about the difference in the weight of a pistol and a difference in the weight of a Tayser and the trigger pull it of a pistol compared to the trigger pulling of a Tayser But I hear no talk about the difference of the way in the two even the barrel a taser don’t have a barrel
Not surprised it was a woman who f'd up. Also, he didnt deserve to die, but you do not fight officers. Just comply and sue them later. Like what did he think was going to happen.
"Accidental" does not preclude "avoidable".
That was wrong and no one thought that what happened was right no matter what your race we are all Children Of God We All Are Special and police need a lot of more training it was totally wrong what they did and those responsible should be held accountable period… My Heart And Prayers Go Out To Mr. Floyd’s Familly and Friends So Sorry For Your Loss 💕🙏😇This was a Horrible crime👎👎👎👎
Yeah, yeah, yeah. It doesn't seem that any elected official from or in Minnesota has been a part of any meaningful legislation. Tina: Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close up.
We hear calls for action and ye no one should die in the custody of police. But what is the answer? I never hear possible solutions just speeches. In this case what should police do when someone has a warrant. Police are required to arrest them but they fight back?
Please somebody step up and give police direction or there will be no more police left.
Get the license plate and mail the damn ticket. Policecneed to stop using traffic stopscyo enjoy violence on citizens for minor citations. People are just tired.
How about not have traffic stops at all how bout that
What’s going on with what used to be very tolerant and peaceful Minnesota? The killing of young black men by police in Minnesota is alarming and an ongoing problem!
It is a tragic situation all around. Soo many "what if's."
What IF Daunte didn't fight his arrest because of his warrent…. would he still be alive?
What IF the officers were able to restrain him quicker?
What IF the officer didn't mistaken the gun with a taser?
…my opinion, if you have a warrent, just take care of it like a man. Don't fight with multiple officers who are trying to place you in handcuffs.
BTW, I am NOT For-or-Against Daunte, and I am NOT For-or-Against the officers..
"Systemic inequality" . She couldn't even say it like it is. Systemic racism.
Let me correct that: traffic stops like this shouldn’t result in resistance and attempts to flee. If he would have gotten away and hurt or killed someone because of his obscene driving, who would have protested? Would the news have cared? And if a community wants to experience less rigorous policing, commit less crimes. It is that simple.
Pilandro was Not Diving.
This lady Tina Smith is very dangerous her words are going to cause riots! She's promoting the propaganda of systemic racism which does not exist in America!!
RIP 💔😢 Please everyone, if the stop is illegal, if the stop is ridiculous, if the COPS are acting aggressively. Please Please Survive so you can fight it!! We want you to LIVE!!! These cops are so scared of their OWN shadows right now and if you add racial bias, racist cops, it is NOT going to end well. Please be calm, don’t resist – I am terrified for anyone getting pulled over.
BUT HIGHLY TERRIFIED for black, brown, asian Human beings, your lives our in imminent danger. Please be calm, even if you are right, please don’t run, don’t resist. Get an attorney immediately- Say nothing. LIVE to knock them the fuc** OFF their pedestals and PUT “THEM” IN JAIL. Prayers for LIVES lost for such nonsense. 🤬🤬😭😭🤬🤬
