Justice for George Floyd, Killed By Excessive Police Force

Target: Jacob Frey, Mayor of Minneapolis

Goal: Bring charges against police officers responsible for death of unarmed black man in Minneapolis.

George Floyd was killed when a Minneapolis police officer reportedly placed his knee on Floyd’s neck for minutes on end, despite Floyd saying “Please, please, please, I can’t breathe. My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Please, please. I can’t breathe.” The officer refused to get off of Floyd, age 46, apparently ignoring warnings and protests from many nearby witnesses. Floyd lost consciousness minutes later and died that evening in a nearby clinic.

It later emerged that officers arrested Floyd for a non-violent charge, and used radically excessive force. While four officers involved have been fired, and one has been arrested, they can’t be allowed to get away with a slap on the wrist. George Floyd’s death cannot be for nothing. Sign the petition below to demand that all of the officers involved in this incident are brought up on criminal charges to send a message that police cannot be allowed to kill someone for their skin color.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mayor Frey,

George Floyd’s death could have been avoided. Even as he lay pleading for air and while nearby witnesses demanded the police officer arresting him remove his knee from Floyd’s neck, there was a chance that Floyd may have lived. That chance has passed, and now yet another unarmed black man has been killed by police officers allegedly using excessive force. While four officers involved have been fired, and one has been arrested, it’s not enough: a clear signal must be sent that there are consequences to harming and killing unarmed human beings.

I demand that all of the officers responsible for Floyd’s death be charged with crimes for their roles, just as anyone else guilty of this violence would be.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The police took this man’s soul. They were horrible they chose a profession to uphold the law to be kind and to use discretion they did nothing they killed this man who was just trying to start over again because they are filled with hate. They took a soul from this beautiful man

  2. Kelly Conway says:

    “Justice for George Floyd, Killed By Excessive Police Force” – should read – “Justice for George Floyd, Murdered by Police Officer”.

  3. All three of those police men are just as guilty as the one that was arrested.
    I saw how that cop rolled his knee back and forth over the neck of a innocent man. Just horrible cruelty.

  4. Carolyn A Taylor says:

    I demand justice for Mr. Floyd, NOW!!!

  5. I dare a trumptard come on here and say something asinine.

  6. Maria Bertrand says:

    The three officers are ALL accomplices and should be charged as such.

    They could see it was wrong and should of reacted by intervening.

  7. Police have gotten away with crimes long enough, the Supreme Court gave them qualified immunity and now its almost impossible to make cops pay for the crimes they commit, this law has to change and cops have to stop being given that “untouchable” status or more murders are going to happen. RIP George Floyd. To the family, I’m so sorry for your loss.

  8. Please don’t normalise killing black people by showing the image of a man being killed without a trigger warning.

  9. This cop should get the death penalty Or solitary for the rest of his life . . He knew what he was doing . He knew Mr Floyd from working with him. The 3 other cops should get 50 years with no chance of parole. It bothers me that not one person tried to intervene. Not even the one taking the video . For mr Floyd to lay there handcuffed and calling for his “mama” is absolutely horrible. All the people walking by and not one did anything . I don’t care if they are cops , words would’ve said a lot in their face as long as their not touched. All cops are not bad but there’s always one that’s thinks his shit don’t stink .

    These cops had a record of this,why was it allowed to continue. SUE, FIRE, JAIL. We need justice also for Patrick Underwood, a black federal officer, was trying to keep the peace during the violent riots taking place in Oakland, California when he was shot and killed.

  11. Laura Adams says:

    This monster cop that passes for human is the very definition of evil. He was planning on killing Floyd the moment he had him in hand cuffs. Maybe he didn’t know he was being videoed, but I doubt if he cared, so strong is his hatred.He started a war when he murdered Floyd and the war grew bigger when authorities waited 4 long days to make an arrest, then the war became enormous after a charge of 3rd. degree murder. Everyone in power carefully designed this to to result in riots, looting and mayhem. Why, is the question I have. Also, why was Mr. Evil so determined to kill Floyd???? I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I do know you don’t put out a fire by throwing gas on it. PIP Floyd.

  12. These 3 filth-bag corrupt oinker pig cops require instigation of the death penalty.

  13. QUIT KILLING BLACK PEOPLE BECAUSE YOU ARE A POLICEMAN.

    He was not killed he was murdered. Plain and simple!

  15. American Girl says:

    This was overkill, this was murder! All of them should be charged, not just one. They were complicit in this. Violence and thuggery is NOT the way to solve this. Mr Floyds family said he would not want any violence, that he was a peaceful man. Celebrate this man by honoring his and his families wishes. Also honor Patrick Underwood, another black man killed by one of these violent thugs. I am in full support of change, of prosecuting all involved in both murders, but I am not in support of opportunistic thugs who steal and burn their own cities and endanger innocent lives! They are the smears on societies underwear. They are oxygen thieves at large.Honor these men for fucks sake! May they Stay in the Light & Shine On…

    • Amarilla McBride says:

      ALL Lives Matter!! Fool!!!
      They got their damn justice the minute those officers were arrested and charged with murder.

      Now, all those so-called protestors are nothing but thugs and criminals.

      Justice has been served, these fools are dishonoring the memory of the man they want to obtain justice for.

      To honor him now, they need to STOP their criminal acts, as Mr Floyd’s family has requested.

    IF WHAT DEREK CHAUVIN AND HIS CRIMINAL ACCOMPLICES COMMITTED WAS NOT FIRST DEGREE MURDER AND TORTURE, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS. WORSE, IT WAS LIKE A WAR CRIME, WHERE AN OCCUPYING ARMY, HEAVILY ARMED, TORTURES AND KILLS FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS OF A CROWD AND FORCES THAT CROWD TO WATCH AT GUNPOINT. NOBODY IN THE CROWD COULD HELP, BECAUSE THEY KNEW THEY WOULD BE SHOT, AND THE 3 ACCOMPLICES DID NOTHING TO HELP OR DE-ESCALATE. IT WAS TERRORISM. IT WAS A WAR CRIME. IT WAS A LYNCHING. ALSO CANNOT GET PAST THE IRONY OF CHAUVIN’S NAME, FROM WHICH WE GET THE WORD “CHAUVINISM”. DEREK CHAUVIN AND HIS ACCOMPLICES BELONG IN JAIL FOR LIFE FOR FIRST DEGREE MURDER. HE IS THE SICKENING EMBODIMENT OF CHAUVINISM AND WHITE SUPREMACY. I FEAR FOR OUR COUNTRY UNDER THE RACISTINCHIEF WHO ABUSES THE HOUSE OF GOD AS A SICK PHOTO-OPP. TELLINGLY HOLDING THE BIBLE UPSIDE-DOWN.

    • You said it…you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. Look up the definition of first degree murder. This wasn’t it! It also wasn’t a “war crime”. It also wasn’t a “lynching”. You may be pissed but you’re talking rubbish without knowing what you’re saying.

  17. Ruth Spears says:

    They all took an Oath before God & this Country To Uphold Justice , Honor, Loyalty & to Stand for the American people and they all should be held accountable for what happened! There is no excuse for this at all! He should be charged with a 1s. degree murder & the other 3 should get 3rd degree murder!

  18. Glenn Martin says:

    All lives matter on this occasion it happens to be a man of colour not that is an excuse for police brutality all officers should be held accountable.
    Signed in solidarity with my fellow members of the human race.

  19. Yolanda Carrizales says:

    I’m outrage with all that has been happening for so long. It’s about time all these sick assholes cops be prosecuted and sentenced to life. Just like they have been convicting innocent people of color for years. All 4 cop’s need to go to prison. They all had a part in George Floyd killing.
