He wrote, “I hope they get killed with street justice. Seen the video and he has zero care for the man’s life even when urged by bystanders. Power hungry f**k. In Nigeria they’d throw a tire around him so when they set him on fire it’ll burn longer. F**k this c**t and his pie face partner.”

The second video highlights that humanity still prevails in some corners. It shows bystanders urging and pleading with the law enforcement authorities to let the man go. This is because he was motionless. “He’s not responsive now,” said a panic-stricken voice. Another onlooker cried out, “Does he have a pulse? Check his pulse!”

Adesanya concluded by elevating the tragic incident above race. He wrote, “if this s**t don’t make you sad or make your blood boil, know I don’t f**k with you at all also you a b***h. I don’t gaf about race, you have no empathy in your soul. 

As per the latest news, the Minneapolis PD fired all 4 officers involved in the murder.
