MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) The FBI has been called to investigate after a man died Monday night in south Minneapolis after an encounter with police.
In a statement early Tuesday, police described what happened as a medical incident. However, a video posted on social media shows an officer kneeing a mans neck to the ground for several minutes. Before he goes unconscious, the man, who is black, repeatedly tells officers he cant breathe.
At a press conference Tuesday morning, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey alluded to the graphic footage, saying: I believe what I saw, and what I saw was wrong at every level.

Sounds bad. Hope there’s video.
I’d have to say that 5 minutes of knee on the neck is enough to kill depending on how much pressure was exerted.
Play stupid games. Win stupid prizes.
But this will be looked at as a hate crime due to black privileges.
After he got out, he physically resisted officers, police spokesman John Elder told reporters
Stop pretending that cops are your friend.
I saw the photos. Police should not be kneeling on some ones neck like that for a long time. Many police are out of control.
White Privilege means hardly anyone cares if the police kill you.
Mayor Jacob Frey alluded to the graphic footage, saying: I believe what I saw, and what I saw was wrong at every level.
Whats this referencing a dream ?
Mebbe the cop was a Kaepernick fan and the perp’s car radio was playing the National Anthem.
Look at the headline.
Black privilege means nobody cares when white people are killed by police or black men because they deserved it.
“Stop pretending that cops are your friend. “
My perception of the police radically changed a few weeks ago when the NJ Sheriff told the chinese virus protestors their Freedom of speech and protest no longer applied.
I no longer feel police will protect are 2nd amend either. If they are told they will lose their job or pension they will take away our guns in a heartbeat.
That was murder. Kneeling on the man’s neck for minutes after he becomes unresponsive, after he loses control of his bladder.
How do you resist when someone has a knee on your neck? I assume your favorite ice cream flavor is boot polish.
I think I’d die if someone did that to me.
