It’s good to see that there are people who were willing to talk to each other and understand each other’s viewpoints. There’s too much negativity we need to show more of this right here and now! #itsneeded

How do you stop racism, "stop talking about it"..."I don't refer you as a white man, and don't refer me as a black man" (paraphrase) Morgan Freeman...this is a new era, generations have past, so it's senseless to always be referring to the times of slavery...nobody owe's anybody anything...study, work hard, don't waste your money or your time, quit blaming and set your own course, you'll get somewhere.

In canada they have "coffee with cops "where cop and citizen get together at a coffee shop and just talk about anything. Whether its asking cops for advice, why they do certain things in a certain way or even about life in general.

In Canada, cops are paid better, face more selective recruitment, have better training, and face greater accountability. Departments in Canada have spent decades increasing the professionalism of their officers and building community ties. There are a number of American departments I have done the same, but, unfortunately, not enough.

PEACEFUL PROTESTERS shouldn't be the ones being arrested. But.....thanks for posting. I needed to be shown an example of what "humanity" looks like..... I've forgotten. Now, release the peaceful protesters....please. You're at the wrong location.

Cops have a job to do, but it doesn't stop them from being human, and most will be pleasant to you if you are pleasant to them.

So he admitted to breaking the law, the show called peaceful protester, by blocking the highway with his protests.,..I wonder how many poor tax paying people were late for their jobs or late to get home from a Long Day's work because of that wonderful gentlemen's peaceful.... Guarantee he didn't take a day off from work... George Soros gave them all $15 an hour

At the end of the day these protestors and looters were not peaceful. If they were law-abiding citizens they would go home when requested and dispurse.

Think about it folks, the very name Black Lives Matter is dividing Us, Sure they matter but no more than the rest of us do. Period. Thats Why All Lives Matter. United. And the Peace officers should never be able to have the power to do what they did, to any American, Being American should be a Race. In my opinion if your part of any group that is dividing you from "We The People!" then you are following the very people dividing us in this Country. And I know there are just some people out there that want to see our country burn down instead of people like the Majority of us do , we want to reform it all from the bottom up.And start to make changes now that will stop these people that have been in office for far to long, #TermLimitations and Voter ID will stop 90% of the corruption now, and give the power back to the people Now. Its simple the real enemy folks are the people that have been in Elected servants positions for more than 6 yrs, FIRE THEM and NEXT!!!

Mike reported all his stories with integrity and compassion for the story itself. He did not take sides or push an agenda. What a refreshing way to report the news. If all media reported this way we as Americans would be informed with the facts. GREAT JOB Mr. Max!

Killing of George Floyd is not only the problem but the hate to black that are actual settler of America. Many times black tourcherd but now they should bring a peaceful administration that truly work for welfare of its people not killing it's people even the people of Afghanistan, Iraq,Libya...etc

I really hope that America gets some kind of system in place to get rid of the bad "eggs" in the force because I think we all know that not everyone who joins the police does so to kill people, but racist officers are there and as long as they are black Americans are going to be in danger and they are going to be afraid. I know things can be better.

You should be relieved to know that MAJOR law enforcement reform is HERE! This is more than just cops kneeling and being friendly. You should be relieved to know that this is the beginning of the dissolution of law enforcement. I have it in strictest confidence from NAPO and federal crimes investigation division that they will turning this proposal into a new law this year. My cousin is an FBI agent and told me this. He said they've been building up to this for years. Floyd's death was just the catalyst to set it in motion. The plan is as follows: There will be no more law enforcement or police officers as they are currently referred to. Police in the USA will be renamed as RRSW's (stands for rapid response social workers). When there is a murder, assault, rape, robbery...whatever the crime may be, they will be called to the scene to "de-escalate" the situation instead of arrest or use force. Furthermore, the word "criminal" will be deleted from their vocabulary. Persons engaging in protestations referred to as "clients". The word crime will be replaced by protestation. I'm sure we can look forward to a more peaceful society with coming new law.

"Protesters Bond With Arresting Officers" - Thats some bs man. This is some zoo like shit. I am never going to bond with some who think they are better than me or who after fucking 70 years keep killing me, and aggresively arresting people who look like me. Just pay me my reparations and everything will be fine. Otherwise we are going to be right in this same point again, and that time will be no more talk. Clearly these people don't learn we tried peace and we still getting killed.

This dude will never go national because he’s too real and he’s not agitating and race bating to drive the narrative enough, lol
Firstly Im from England, and whats happened in America is really disturbing to do that to a person, ( George Floyd ) is so so wrong, be it he was black skinned, white skinned, from China, Sweden, Antarctica, it just should not happen, you cannot treat people like that, the Officers are a disgrace to the badge they represent. If I prayed to God or whatever people preach be it Allah, Jesus, Shiva, Buddha, I would ask them, please make all new born babies colour blind, so everyone will be treated as a human and not by the colour they see as we do now. Peace and Love to you all

All colors Matter🙏✝️🇺🇸🌹 God Bless Our President and Drew Brees. RIP George Floyd 😭🙏❤️🌹✝️ I will never forget you. God Bless your family. NFL needs to stand forOur National Anthem.
