What did your eyes tell you when you watched the videos from the officer’s body cams? You’re an ass hole Seth Meyers. This wasn’t a step in the right direction. This was mob rule and you’re part of the problem.Reply
The part I wish was discussed is how much money people make by spreading lies. This drives the lies. The constant argument is ‘what purpose do they have to lie’. Answer, money.Reply
Comments from a smug white guy, no thanks!Reply
Kaleigh mcninny has no self awareness. she’s got real balls to say what she did if she had any at all.Reply
Oh for christ sake!Reply
Seth and Chicago go way back, apparently?..Reply
Uhhh yea, I remember about 45 minutes of a slow video chase of a Bronco and a lot of clear evidence and yet what was the outcome? What this trial shows is that having the ability to throw a lot of money at a case has a substantial impact on the outcome. The only color that counts is green.Reply
The robot dog bot. would be a PAWd castReply
Hard to believe racism against blacks even exists in America.. everything I see online makes it sound like Americans worship black people and always defend them but don’t even care about other races. Like if a policeman killed an asian, there probably would hardly be any public response or protests because #onlyblacklivesmatter. I hate Trump with all my hate but looks like both sides of America are just dumbReply
get off this fake news outlet…and do research…just check around .Reply
Prosecution: Look at the damn tape! Floyd is begging for his life saying he can’t breathe!
Defense: OK so I know the tape looks bad BU~T maybe consider the possibility that Floyd died from carbon monoxide instead. That gas sinks and he’s like right there on the ground near that tailpipe… I’m just saying!
Logic: He’s on the ground because Chauvin is holding him there. So if he died from carbon emissions or from a 200lb gorrila pressing a knee to his neck, the same dude killed him… 🤔Reply
Yknow what? The girl who got this on her cell phone? Let’s set up a little bit of college money for her. It’s the least we can do.Reply
too. many. voices.Reply
Important takeaway is the 911 call system. It routes to the fastest responder, and not necessarily the most appropriate responderReply
Why not have (like in Europe) a simple system to call 15 for medical/ambulance, 17 for police, 18 for fire/fastest emergency response?
bubba is waiting!Reply
I’m disappointed that Seth didn’t mention that the robot dogs are so poorly designed that they have a tendency to maim people unintentionally when people get too close to their joints.Reply
I watch you and laugh so hard. ……and then you drop critical analysis!??!!! WHO ARE YOU!?Reply
Seth Meyers looks like he spent his high school years with his face stuck in a toilet.Reply
We said. Thanks. ❤️Reply
Hopefully sentencing will go the way it should…..Reply
5:09 almost sounds like some random joke. 4 years from now, people will watch this clip and assume Seth was doing a bit.Reply
My head twitch on its on and I can’t control it, I can only imagine what that man went through. I been afraid to Google it out cause I was afraid to find out what was going on with me. I hate my ex for doing that to meReply
Your Iggy is adorableReply
THE NATION REALLY WON! CHAUVIN SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN ON THE FORCE! NOR HIS ACCOMPLICE!Reply
Seth coming in with the Nick Miller Chicago accentReply
There’s a video called…’Knee on neck restraint demonstration’.Reply
It offers multiple angles of proof that this restraint does NOT impair breathing.
I cant link it here but its easy to find.
“No neck pasta goblin” is now on my greatest burn of all time list (Top 5) right behind Ryan Reynolds in Blade: Trinity with a zinger I won’t post here.Reply
Only the UK doesnt routinely arm its police. Only in the US do police routinely use their guns especially against those guilty of being black. I live in Spain. Our police are routinely armed. They manage to arrest even armed drug lords in their Marbella villas without killing or even injuring anyone. How is it they are so much better trained than US police?Reply
How can police officers not want to hand over the non police work they are stuck so they can focus on their actual job. Crime. Not traffic violations. Not mental health emergencies. Ect.. I would think they would be happy to hand that burden over to someone else so they can focus on their job. And that is actually what we mean by “defund the police” But that is a horrible slogan that has only made it more difficult to find the common ground that both the police and the people would agree on and support.Reply
.hey Seth, you forgot to mention the fact that these executions of the minorities have been going on for years, except this time the Chauvin(ist) pigs were caught red handed!!!!Reply
The sad truth is: If the other officers had pushed Derek Chauvin off of George Floyd, we never would have learned of this incident and the officer who pushed Chauvin off of George Floyd, would have been fired.Reply
The guy at approx. 9:00 of this video starts off with some good points, but then he descends into a solution that sounds like a permanent high school prison-life, where the vision of a community, “deciding when someone has become too violent,” is just like, WTF?!? First, the descriptions this guy gives of services and investment in communities should be a pre-emptive preventive form of funding. You put plenty resources out there as a nation, and you take away the excuse for wrongdoing. If members of a community can legitimately get by on available programs and resources, a path to bettering their situation is available, and they’re still engaged in criminality and victimizing others, then they are probably the issue, not the system. So there’s obviously improvement that can be made on those levels. This idea being fostered in left-wing circles that a group of community members should get together to decide when someone should be dealt with by the law is extremely fascist, or at least extremely prone to fascist outcomes. You’ll have a popularity contest in which people who get other people into trouble with the rest of the community will appear heroes, and that fact will attract sociopaths to that social niche, pointing out those who are, “too violent,” or too witch-like, or too white or too Mexican or too Muslim, and whatever the excuse, it’s going to in reality be, “too independent,” “too comfortable being less socially involved than others.” It’s not going to work to continue to spread that idea, because it will become bastardized instantly, and as a result, everyone will look to obey a social pecking order that may have nothing to do with less crime, less criminal hierarchy, less organized crime, and more victims. It is the exact path to fascism, and there are many, many examples throughout history of how this ideal has done worse than fail – it has become evil, powerful and massively destructive. If you’re someone who spent your youth studying and preparing to pursue a life of professional pursuit and achievement, you’re gonna end up taking orders in your pocket of community from some high school, “A,” crowd, that rich a-hole, a couple half-witted cheerleaders, and the jocks who will basically become badge-less cops, enforcing whatever flavor of the day seems exciting. This sounds like an indirect quote from Mark Bray and his logic, who espouses this kind of nonsense BS. That global village fantasy doesn’t function as rosy as a lot of people want to imagine, and the proof for that is the fact societies globally have sought to improve on that concept to the result of what we now see because the other way sucked for everyone involved, so they changed things, and the attempts to improve are yet perfect by any stretch. People like Bray would push us to war through ignorant wishy-washy good intentions, and it won’t be a scene of an anorexic looking hipster picking up a canister of tear gas, and defiantly throwing it back at the cops, cameras all readied, the scene framed, optimal lighting angle achieved. Most people would just get poisoned. Scenes where that hipster type has been hit during urban exchanges, is lying in the street crying and bleeding out, and the closest guy to him can’t drag him out of the line of danger because he’s too skinny and weak would be common. Fat guy gets caught? Forget it. Who’s gonna be able to extract that guy? The lead up to that though, I think this guy’s right on the money (no pun intended). We are so stupid as a society to pretend that the economic stress we heap on the bottom ends of society is somehow a necessity for the rules of business, and capitalist economics. Spending money to lock people up who are making trapped attempts at betterment, with few options, seeking a little extra to get by or some bling is just dumb as opposed to structuring the capacity to simply get by, not be involved in criminality and still have means of betterment. People who have to hurt and damage others as a part of their existence, even after they have basic necessities and legit paths to betterment should be the ones going to prison and working out their sociopathic and/or psychopathic personality disorders. But we will completely fall if we allow a system where we are supposed to be accountable to both law, as in on the books law, and special community rules, that may not be fixed, and that may not be even written down, subject to changes and finagling to the benefit of a select few, in exactly the ways we see that flaw showing up on larger scale. The greatest good is respect for the rights of the individual. Every example from modern history, especially in this country, is a failing of that aspiration, usually because of an outrage-driven trade-off. Take the example of Japanese internment camps during WWII, a decision to ignore the rights of individuals for a concern related to greatest good. We need to catch up protection of individual rights to our current social landscape, and recognize that social programs can and have in the past in many ways been the means of protecting them, but are not applicable in numerous aspects of society. When it comes to policing, we are at equal threat from misuse of technology to deny or oppress rights through law enforcement as we are from organized crime, for example. The most difficult problem to overcome is the means to ensure rights, despite the myriad threats from systemic or individual desires to deny or obstruct them. I don’t see how we can uphold rights without not only saying these are your rights, but also structuring the means to live them. To say that all Americans have the right to freedom of religion, but you can’t get hired anywhere unless you become Baptist, (as an example), is not freedom of religion. It’s fake freedom. We need means to ensure these are not conditions we can only challenge through a legal suit against a small set of gigantic corporate entities, whose board and management don’t know the previous rights obstruction is happening.Reply
.Seth, any chance at all of questioning the biggest elephant in the room: ” the myth of the existence of the MYTHICAL character popularly know as “god” ?!Reply
Ye that police bog costs over 140k$Reply
you saw what you sawReply
A very satisfying Foto of Chauvin getting handcuffed, thanks👍Reply
Regardless of the issue I don’t need some late night lackey celebrating someone’s conviction under bathe guise of ‘entertainment’. This is a tragedy caused by an arrogant individual exceeding.his training and authority. Someone is dead and his life is ruined. Get some class Seth Meyers and find better source material for your asides.Reply
Please stop RESISTING arrestReply
Loving the impressionsReply
He knew he was going to be found not guilty he wore his best suit to get interviewed by Fox Newsmax.Reply
Why would I donate to NYC ? For what ? I never heard of such a thing ….I donate many but never to a state . Biden will help you , ask him , he has lots of money . It’s better for folks to help one another . and volunteer , visit folks , bring some groceries buy a tank of gas . There are many wealth in NYC . This hand out business needs to be replaced with genuine hands on assistance. I am very wary of who I give my hard earned money to just sayinReply
Joann is a saint! You hear me?! A saint!Reply
Hey! Leave the mothers out of this.
Ummm Seth. Say “Charmin” for us again…..Reply
OK so ONE Officer gets his career destroyed and a murder rap. Feels like he’s a pawn being sacrificed — especially as NO ONE is talking about outlawing the “knee on neck” restraining / torture technique used by US police.Reply
While Derek Chauvin got what he deserved, the whole argument of ” its obvious therefor it must be” is so stupidly flawed its why innocent people go to the jail in the first place. couldnt he make a better case for this ? lolReply
Pasta goblin deserves an A+Reply
Can someone at Late Night start working on the spinoff show called “CigaRoach and DigiDog”.Reply
When digidog chokes you to within an inch of your life, you’ll get charged for assaulting a police officer.Reply
It’s amazing that the police wrote a report that didn’t include what was in the video at all. I wonder how many other police reports contain lies that could be contradicted by a cellphone video. We are all witnesses to what the police do now. Get your cellphone cameras ready, everyone.Reply
When did we stop being able to trust what the police did? It takes just one policeman convicted of murder to make us suspect every one. If they would try and get away with something so despicable, how much else are they getting away with?
Cops are never to be trusted!!!!Reply
Lying is their default position!!!!
BTW, that one convicted cop in Minnesota was Black!!!
Yeah, he shot and killed a White woman.
He went straight to jail!!!
He didn’t get the customary 72 hours of reflection that White cops get!!!
The NYPD is a bottomless pit of taxpayer funding!!!
Thank you, Seth, and the other night time guys Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel for staying on these important issues. It was very helpful during 45’s administration and it’s helpful now when there’s continuing bs going on in this country. As a white person, I’m so disgusted that police have been getting away with murdering people of color. I felt that this was going to be a slam dunk and that’s what it turned out to be, but I’m still angry. Real justice would be a live George Floyd. A cop thought it was OK to kill him because he was suspected of passing a counterfeit $20 bill. A human life was taken because a cop thought that handcuffing and subduing him on the ground wasn’t enough. Twenty dollars!Reply
The US is a totalitarian regime – and the dictator is the US dollar. All systems are designed to generate revenue first. – Change my mind.Reply
Racists cops are now shitting their pants now because of the verdict of Chavin being guiltyReply
I could never bring myself to watch the video. Just hearing about it was horrific enough. When are these people dividing this county going to stop? For God’s grace!Reply
I lived in Chicago a few years back driving to work heard gun shots at least once a week saw a man shot. I knew a police officer that his car was shot at more then a few times, the fire department was afraid to go on calls in some areas. Reform retrain accountability yes. Defund, no not until we demilitarise the citizens. The police dog is stupid but that more a problemof government spending. Convicting Derek Chauvin is a great start and police must be held to a higher standard yes. The gun culture in this country is the major problem the police are part of it but we are the bigger problem.Reply
Seems like they can afford a bunch of new cop cars everywhere. The crownvictorias they used to drive are basically gone now. They are really good cars now traded in for newer SUVs. I’ve never seen a cop car that was sold in bad shape or needing any repairs. I know Ford stopped making them but it seems like a money grab to get them to upgrade to more expensive cars with unknown reliability and a lot more expensive parts.Reply
Next time i’m high on drugs I’m gonna confront a police officer. If I die my family is rich if I survive I’m rich!Reply
did you send your mother in law a clip of this saying “hey look i mentioned you today”Reply
$5 million dollars a day is going to all the cops abusing the overtime policy and making up to $200k/year.Reply
wow then false source of broadcasted informationReply
keep it upReply
My god these Republicans have no shame. Literally not even 6 months after the most divisive administration that has ever existed these gasbags have the nerve to say Biden is the one causing divisiveness. Just a bunch of gaslighting douchebagsReply
Your batman summary is incorrect. ❤️Reply
jimmy valerie amber connie virginia would not like thatReply
virginia gina joseph paul rightReply
you think i care what tray has told you the 87 founder of the country videos has shownReply
you think i dont have a civil lawsuitReply
i do have my informationReply
run that in buddyReply
yrs ss number i gotReply
That police dog costs like 70million. If you see it smash it to bits.Reply
you going be out of a job then im going take you to civil courtReply
then threats to my lifeReply
…how do you eat an elephant ? One bite at a time…….how do you reform policing ? One CONVICTION at a time.Reply
Not that simple. Magicians rely on you believing what you thought you saw. The brain sometimes fills in the gaps. Sure was a lack of empathy though on Chauvin’s part.Reply
Is anybody else confused by those robots dogs? What is wrong with using a K-9? I feel like they needed a much better introduction to the public.Reply
meananhilationwhile, Okla just passed a law that you can run over protesters with your car. WTFUCK!!!? 🤬😡😠😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳Reply
Thank God we finally got one outcome of accountability. 👼 🍃 🕊Reply
Why is Seth Meyers showing two pictures of the prosecution on his screen instead of showing the defense attorney and then one of the prosecuting attorney’s.Reply
He did not kill him….. let’s talk about his actions and drugs in his system. Overdose end of story.Reply
You explained allot but right at the end on this mask nonsense….I take it you’re Forced to say it to keep your job 😉Reply
i love this, seth & baze knock it out as always; i wish more people knew the backstory, that floyd wasn’t a stranger to chauvin, they were both security guards at a club where chauvin’s go-to move whenever black people were involved BEGAN with pepper-spraying the crowd, he had a beef w. floyd from long before… ok, police chief, this time, but why the hell was he still working there after 17 disputes? and those are only the ones brave enough to report him…Reply
Hey Seth don’t even pretend that pillow selling idiot is from Chicago.Reply
also…can we please acknowledge Ben Affleck as Batman 🙁Reply
But didn’t he only get second degree murder? I feel like justice wasn’t truly served hereReply
“Freedom of Speech” has been confused with FREEDOM TO LIE.Reply
Pundits & politicians need to be held accountable when they lie. Let’s start with Tr**p
Love most of your impressions, Seth — but it’s pretty clear you’ve never heard Paul Hollywood speak before in your life!Reply
Wow, that Paul Hollywood impression was bad. You know he’s from Liverpool, right?Reply
Over 20 thousand police interactions a year, and less than 1% lead to death.Reply
Floyd was murdered but there is not a pandemic of police brutality. Just take five minutes to look at the stats.
Black people are more likely to be killed by lighting than a cop. I’m not a Trump supporter, I’m liberal; I’ve just seen the actual numbers. The media is skewing the reality of the situation.
Please please please look up the actual stats.
President flamethrower lmaoReply
Yeah so about 5 millions a day.. what fraction of that is used on lawsuit settlement?Reply
Defund the policeReply
Big chunk of police budgets are payouts for violence & damage.Reply
5:08 Nice work here for the next 30 seconds !!Reply
Kayleigh McEnany—still a twisty, poison-tongued little Trumpist batting her Bambi eyes for the GOP crowd. Note that Fox News loves cutesy little blondes, but they also have to be mean girls to get the job.Reply
Kudos: That is one hell of a lot of thoughtful insight in just 11 minutes, and it made me laugh too.Reply
Schools Police??? WTF You have a division of the police for SCHOOLS!!!! So I googled it and yes there is,. Sometimes called the campus cops, and this is what I found. “Most large colleges and universities set up full-fledged police departments on school grounds. These sworn officers have the same authority as any other members of the police—they carry weapons, make arrests, and enforce local, state, and federal laws”Reply
Yep it’s real.
“Don’t believe your eyes”. An excuse used because eyewitness reports are notoriously unreliable. Problem is in this case, it was a camera, not eyes recording, and it is impartial, it only records what you point it at, with no agenda of its own.Reply
Who thumbs down an articulate critique of our current failure as a “democratic” society to be equitable to all citizens?🤯Reply
Thank you, Late Night writers for giving us “saner” white folks excellent talking points for our “peers”.
You take on everything is everything. Thank you.Reply
The “left truth” by Seth. If you don’t believe him he’ll dum it down with a toilet paper analogy for you.Reply
The US spends more money on its cops than all but 2 countries do on their armies.Reply
One of which being the
(9:56) Heartfelt. “When a badge and a gun is appropriate”. So often that type of thinking is ignored or even rejected.Reply
Half the country is gullible.Reply
Tucker carlson is obviously a Leftist communist!!!Reply
What really bothers me is,why didn’t the supervisor at the scene not say “get off his f’n neck”…Reply
Police departments were NOT originally set-up to keep any particular group of humans repressed – except criminals.Reply
this is just the first step in the right direction, the next group to go after are the ones who set up this system and keep it in place. they can only hold people down for so long until a breaking point is reached.Reply
Where are the republicans that screamed “the government is coming for us, it’s why I need my guns”, now that republican States are banning protesting and “disrespect of the police” (codeword for, we’re making police immune to criticism and accountability).Reply
We live in the United States of Gaslighting, where Fox News is the white house.Reply
Robotdog is a little more remrmecnt of a Black Mirror episodeReply
This FOOL probably never cared about these subjects before .how can he talk on issues that don’t have to do with him.Reply
Can’t believe anyone with their right senses would adopt the “Don’t Believe Your Eyes” culture of our 45th President and bring it to a real court of law before the whole world.Reply
