‘Should all Minneapolis police officers receive the same sentence?


Dr. Perry Crouch

“Yes, because they were standing around when people were telling Derek Chauvin to take his knee off George Floyd’s neck. They acted like they didn’t even care.”

Ericka M.

Los Angeles

“My initial reaction was yes, but then when I stop and think about it, I don’t know about the ones that came in late.  I don’t know. There were officers that came in later and the damage had already been done.”

Marvin G.

Los Angeles

“The officers that initially killed him should get 40 years and the other officers that came late, should get at least 15 years.  It’s like robbing a bank. You didn’t do it, but you’re there.”

Van Pierszalowski

To be honest, I don’t know those details of the case. I do know that was one of the most tragic events that I have ever heard of in my entire life.”
