    'I can't breathe': Man dies after pleading with officer during Minneapolis arrest


    "Please, please, please I can’t breathe," the man begs. "My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Please, please. I can’t breathe."

    Onlookers outside the Minneapolis deli urge the officer to get off the man.

    "You’re stopping his breathing right now, you think that’s cool?" one man says. "His nose is bleeding, look at his nose!" says a woman.

    The officer doesn't budge.

    Andthen the man goes silent. More people begin to intervene and call for the officer or his partner to check for a pulse. The officer remains on the man's neck, even as he lay apparently unresponsive, for a total of about eight minutes before paramedics arrive and the man is placed on a stretcher.

    A statement from the Minneapolis Police Department released early Tuesday said the officers had responded to a report of a forgery in progress and found the suspect in his car. He stepped out of the car when he was ordered to, police said, but then physically resisted officers.

    "Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress," the statement said. "Officers called for an ambulance. He was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center by ambulance where he died a short time later."
    A man appearing to yell "I can't breathe" as a Minneapolis police officer put his knee on the man's neck for about eight minutes died, prompting the FBI to investigate.

          This country has been resembling a "police state" for far to long now.... just a matter of time until the wrong incident sets a blaze this tinderbox. I am all for civility, to a point. Tree of liberty and all that.

              My first thought was Gestapo. Had that been you or I we would be in jail charged with murder.

                Yup, becoming more and more common.

                  Hard to say from the video, did he die from the cop suffocating him or something else? If he just got done fighting four cops, then that changes the story., seeing only part of the video can be misleading. I guess we will see.

                    Looked to me like the skinny dude was kneeling on his neck with all his weight. Regardless of whatever other complications there are, casually applying that kind of pressure while the person speaks their last words--yep, if it were one of us normies, we'd be in jail, awaiting a short trial. To that point, the other gang members would probably be arrested for accessory.

                      ya that short clip still seemed odd tho

                      why not cuff him and put him away? the dude seemed like he was tired and not resisting anymore

                        They fired the 4 cops right out of the gate. I'm doubting body cam of the whole thing is going to help their case

                          1. I think nealing on the neck is standard procedure for restraining someone.
                          2. People claim all sorts of shit when they are going to jail.
                          3. If the cops were fired without a proper investigation, that's BS but MSP is the land of libtards.

                          I'd like to see the full unedited video and get cause of death before passing judgment on this one. Remember black lives matters was a lie created by the media to forward an agenda and this could be another example of the same.

                            1 - well, that's a shitty practice. don't mind at all if this sparks a change to it. sucks that being in your car is acceptable grounds to order you out and heavily influence your death
                            2 - yup
                            3 - if they were wrongly fired, they will just be rehired with back pay cuz #ThinBlueLine

                            and yes, BLM is a farce

                              not for 8 minutes

                              and not when you called a bus because you thought he needed medical from the get-go
