The internet coughs up an endless series of gruesome videos, but George Floyd being choked to death over six minutes via a policeman's knee to his neck holds a unique power to shock. In a series of tweets, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones reacted.

Four officers involved in the death have been fired. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey reports that according to the chief of police, “The technique that was used is not permitted, is not a technique that our officers get trained in." The murder led to protests and clashes with police, and represents yet another stop in the national controversy around police brutality and race relations.

You could see that the cop was adjusting the choke a couple of times. Clear as day he intended to kill that guy.

MOST of what Jon say's is spot on (never thought I would say that) but to say it's worse than drowning is a stretch.

When even Jon Jones knows right from wrong, you definitely have a problem.

Happy to see Jones being on the right side of the law for a change. And appreciate him using his status and fame to draw attention to this atrocity.

LOL at JJ being morally outraged over anything. The incident was horrible but I don't need his input. He should just STFU.

Even bad people are justified for not wanting the police to murder them or people who look like them.

I felt that way when he went off on Matt Mitrione. It was so weird to take his side in a conflict.

I think most of the time in these situations that gain national spotlight  the police are justified. This piece of trash was not. They need to send him away for a long long time.

On this, Jon is 100% right.

Except for calling it an OSP choke.

Youre a fucking idiot if you think suffocating for 6 minutes before dieing is less than drowning. All you have to do is take a deep breathe and drowning stops, you're done. You dont spend 6 minutes choking, pleading for your life while it slips away when you're under water. Get the fuck off this forum you dipshit. We don't need people like you here.

Crazy in the USA the law are not trained to recognize an understanding positional asphyxiation. It one of the main aspects of restraints over here.

As a Minnesotan, I am disgusted.

That officer should be publicly executed. Tie him onto 150lb braid and downrigger troll him across Lake Minnetonka until he drowns.

Also, fuck Jon Jones.
