He’s fine as hell though
lol true and at 6’3 and 270? He could break my bed frame any night 😂
Too bad he ruined his future by doing this. You’d think he’d see himself in another brother, but he let the power trip get to his head and now he’s got to pay the consequences. Smh
They are all digusting, pathetic people who have no right to be police officers. How could you possibly think any one of them are “fine”.
I agree!! They are disgusting pieces of shit.
Let me say that some people are soooo pitiful. Y’all thinking about sex when this man just KILLED someone. I wonder how attractive would you find him had he did that to one of ur family members. SMH
After viewing the video, all five of those officers should get the maximum time after their conviction by the court. And when they go to prison, a photo of Tyre where he is lying in the hospital dying by the hands of those officer, should be pasted on the wall in each of those officers cell block.
I hope they put them with general population so those men can do what they did to Tyre to them. They better hope nobody go after their family
What about the police chief and the D A and internal affairs and all others that possibly knew these were bad cops. They should also be investigated. People all over the country should stay in the streets protesting until the feds do something drastic to stop the murders of black and brown people. As a 50 year activist, I say the masses of people in the streets can change things and nothing else will, as we’ve seen.

As a 50 year activist, I say that’s the only way to make the government listen.
But the bottom line is…If Obama had a son, he sure as hell could not look like Mr. Emmitt Martin III.
If you are not thinking about the Horrible things these so called Cops did to this young Brother including taking his life and depriving his Child of a Father,and you can think about Bedroom Businss,you need to get your Despertate Behind Head Examined,you is and embrassment to Strong Womanhood ,no one on this theard should be talking about anything but lifting up Tyre’s Family and Friends in Prayer and working together,so something this INSANE never ever happen again(Peace and Love to everyone).
He should get at least 20 years.
How are they paying for legal fees?
