The fatal arrest of George Floyd was shown “through the eyes” of police officers

African-American George Floyd, whose death in the custody of white police officers has roiled the US, provoking a wave of protests with riots, vandalism, and numerous detentions, pleaded with the cops not to shoot him and warned that their actions could lead to his death.

This is evidenced by the recording from the body camera of one of the police officers who conducted the arrest on May 25 in Minneapolis, published by the Daily Mail.

The video was “leaked” despite a court ruling that it could only be shown during court hearings.

The video begins with several policemen approaching the car that Floyd is driving. One of them points a gun at the man.

“Mr. officer, please don't shoot me. Please, man, “ George Floyd pleads with tears in his eyes.

They took him out of his own car to put him in the back of a patrol car. Floyd resisted, saying he was suffering from claustrophobia and anxiety. Then officer Derek Chauvin wrestled Floyd to the ground and knelt on his neck for nine minutes, despite his repeated cries of “I can't breathe.” According to the transcription of the recording, he repeated this phrase 21 times.

“I'll probably die like this,” Floyd said prophetically at one point.

As a result, as a result of a lack of oxygen, he lost consciousness. After that, he was taken to a hospital, where the man died.

We will remind you that Floyd's funeral took place on June 9 in the city of Houston. A solemn farewell ceremony was attended by hundreds of people, including the candidate for President of the USA Joe Biden.
