The police body cam footage which shows the build up to the horrific killing of George Floyd shows just how scared Floyd was before his death.
As the footage begins, Floyd begs the cops who ultimately killed him not to shoot him, adding that he has recently lost his mother.
The cops approach Floyd vehicle with a pistol aimed towards his head – after police were called over a potentially fake $20 note.
Floyd is then yanked out of his vehicle and forced into handcuffs. He repeatedly tells police he is not resisting arrest, but is then forced into the back of a police SUV.
As this is happening Floyd tells them he’s scared of getting in the back of the vehicle as he’s claustrophobic. He adds that ‘he’s gonna die in here’ and sobs and wails.
Suddenly Floyd is back on the pavement and that’s when Officer Chauvin put his knee onto Floyd’s neck.
As we all know by now, what followed was Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for a full nine minutes as Floyd repeatedly explained that he could not breathe.
As a result of his injuries, Floyd tragically died – sparking protests across the world.
Chauvin is facing charges of second degree murder and manslaughter.
The three other officers face charges of aiding and abetting second degree murder and manslaughter.
