Back in May, a video posted on social media exposed a police officer keeping his knee planted on the neck of a black man who pleaded that he couldn’t breathe and subsequently died shortly afterward. That man was George Floyd.
It happened Monday night on May 25 in Minneapolis, when cops were responding to a “forgery in progress.” Police arrived and saw the suspect sitting in a car. According to the Department, the man resisted arrest so he was placed in handcuffs, adding “he appeared to be suffering medical distress.”
The protests continue three months from the day of George Floyd’s killing.
We had many videos since then but the PD never released the bodycam footage.
The terror on George Floyd’s face as a rookie cop points a gun at his head while he sits in his car can be seen today for the first time
DailyMail.com has exclusively obtained video from the bodycams of officers Thomas Lane and Alex Kueng, who were part of Floyd’s fatal arrest on Memorial Day in Minneapolis
Floyd died after Officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes on May 25.
The tapes show in minute detail how a very distressed Floyd begs ‘Mr. Officer, please don’t shoot me. Please man,’ before the struggle that ended with his death on May 25.
It also shows how belligerent cops cursed at and manhandled the sobbing suspect, ignoring his pleas for compassion.
The full video below:
I really believe the Police were wrong at this point. Yes, Floyd struggled, but they did get him cuffed, so unless there is something we still do not know, the Police should have stood him up and put him in a squad which is normal procedure.
As for these riots, what the police did was wrong and they did answer for it, but there is no reason to behave like this. Yes, gather in protest, but do so peaceably!
