Leaked bodycam video shows new details of George Floyd’s arrest

Leaked bodycam video shows new details of George Floyd's arrest 1


In partial footage obtained by the Daily Mail from the body cameras worn by two of the now-former Minneapolis police officers involved in the arrest of George Floyd, a panicked Floyd can be seen struggling with officers while in the back of a squad car in the minutes before his death, saying, "I can't breathe."
Moments later, following the struggle, Officer Thomas Lane can be heard asking Officer Derek Chauvin whether Floyd should be rolled on his side.
Floyd died May 25 while in custody, and the incident — which was also recorded on cell phone video — set off protests that soon went nationwide. The demonstrations over his killing and the deaths of other African Americans at the hands of police prompted intense discussions on racism in America.
The Daily Mail, based in London, does not say how it obtained the footage of the police body cameras.

    Why don’t you show the full footage

      waqaa you don’t have to be formally placed under arrest to be put in handcuffs. He was being legally detained. In the full video, the cop begins to explain why they are making contact but Floyd began acting immediately belligerent and abnormal. Yes, the cop drew his weapon when Floyd was reaching around and the cop could not see his hands. Shortly after Floyd decided to place his hands on the steering wheel, the cop holstered his weapon. Floyd was 7/8 in the car, and still belligerent. All he had to do was lift his feet and face forward. He could’ve not freaked out in the first place and 95% of the situation could’ve went differently. This is not to say that the idiot who chose to kneel on his neck was justified, because he wasn’t. George Floyd certainly did not deserve to die, and the continued kneeling on his neck was completely unjustified. That being said, had George not decided to use counterfeit money, then choose to act belligerently, then resist arrest, and then refuse to get in the car, are all undeniable contributing factors that unfortunately weighed heavy in the outcome.

  2. Sharing the truth…it shouldn’t be called leaking, and made to be a shameful betrayal. Decency, is who and what shared this. I applaud the heart and conscience of whoever had the courage to do so.

      M JE I don’t know if that is true. it could be but I haven’t seen that for myself, so I can’t be sure but even so. He clearly couldn’t breath. If, in his past, George did something similar to get out of jail or tried to resist by making up excuses or something then that’d would be understandable that the cops reacted that way but to my knowledge and from the 18 minutes of footage, George couldn’t breath and he voiced his breathing difficulties to the cops many many times and they did nothing.

    • It’s called cherry picking to paint your own narrative.

  3. Why was this hidden for months!

    • @Tim……because the hijacked and leftist infected Democrat Party and their mainstream media minions can’t handle the truth……ESPECIALLY if there’s NO “Let’s Blame Trump” cr**ap in it.

    • blazzingsaddles4 He’s a career criminal dude he’s not an angel .


    • Keith Ellison hid it
      The democratic antifa supporter and racebaiter. Go google Keith Ellison Antifa. Democrats and the media have been lying to Blacks, using us in their war to attack Trump and White people. We was lied to, people died and businesses burnt for a lie.

      Max Headroom I already know why that’s a load of bs, half of the deaths in the US come from 5 Dem. states pushing Covid patients into nursing homes, the other half seem to be straight made up. Florida reported a positivity rate of 98% of all people who were tested, turns out it was actually 9.8%. That seems like less of a “mistake” as the media put it, and more so full on manipulation of data.

    • Tom Bretislow lmao who told you that? Evidence in a trial is never presented to the public before the trial and before the jurors are even selected. That creates a significant amount of bias as the jurors you’re selecting have already seen the evidence and formed an opinion on it before the trial has even started. Please stop spewing bullshit and educate yourself

    • @Slender Man 186 Do you know what you are saying? Chauvin was on his neck, Keung was on his back,Lane was on his legs. He didn’t seem to be having any OD sitting in his car or walking across the street. A serious panic attack and mentally in need of help. Never physical. Chauvin came and made the situation turn deadly. The paramedics should of handled this. If Chauvin wasn’t on his neck clearly applying pressure, and Kueng wasn’t on his back he would be here today. Long was the only one who knew ok we should turn him over. Why?

    • See this is why the victims privacy should be withheld until court. The first thing when a black person is killed they say he had drugs in his system. After that every killer on line think a person should die. What is wrong with people. Chauvin applied pressure to his carotid artery cutting off oxygen. Now let’s talk about the dirt they have on Chauvins record. Oh I didn’t think so! Everyone is a judge and jury. This man never had a chance to see a real one. One thing has nothing to do with what actually happened. Get the hell off the man’s neck. That s it. Tell the rest to the judge.

    He demanded to lay on the ground?? What?

    • @adam adam
      It’s arrogant to think you hold the truth.
      1 – Your answers to your OWN questions is an opinion, so how can you “ignore” opinion.
      2 – Here is the fundamental question.
      Did Floyd deserve to die, specially considering how he died?
      Should a cop kill with impunity? Fair to say, not in free countries.
      3 – Finally yours questions about training are not relevant for the following reasons.
      If he did not follow training, he should not be a cop. The other cop told him to roll GF over, and he refused.
      EVEN the bystanders with ZERO training, could tell GF was unconcious and he still did not let go.
      The cop is going to court to be judged, something he denied Floyd.

      Scott Brinkerhoff , I know if my black husband is pulled over for a traffic stop he is treated much differently than I am when I’m pulled over.

    • Scott Brinkerhoff | August 4, 2020 at 10:40 PM | Reply

      Jennifer Martin , I can only speak from my own personal experience- to that I say every interaction with police that I’ve had driving makes me extremely anxious and paranoid- I hate it. I use Uber as much as possible. One light out is all it takes. Laws are extremely tough. But I have learned that if you follow through in the judicial courts. Things get corrected. Too often we forget the police are NOT the Judge. Just relax and follow the instructions and move on. You obviously realize all cops are not white or men. Cities are extremely diverse

    Were is the 20 something minutes missing. That show Floyd being erratic.

    • @nick smith I think you misunderstand. I absolutely condemn the actions of opportunists and white supremacists who used the guise of protesting to loot and destroy largely poor BIPOC neighborhoods, knowing that brainless people would inevitably pin it on the protesters.

    • @nick smith also, calling me a racist for condemning white supremacists is cute. It means you don’t know what the meaning of the word is. But cute nonetheless.

    • @Corey Plate there are no white supremacists protesting against racism lol? are you stupid? You have refused to condemn the violence of the domestic terrorists in Portland and Seattle who are rioting and looting. very bizarre to not condemn the violence done by Anitfa and the weirod commies out there. and blaming made up white supremacists is yea, very RACIST. same thing falsely blaming a black guy for a crime he did not commit. so stop being a racist , and just condemn the violence by the rioters in Portland and Seattle like a normal person

    • @nick smith I guess you’ve never heard of psyops and have no imagination. Anyway, I posted a google link above that backs up what I’m saying, while you’re… trying to defend white supremacists from accusation of racism? Interesting strategy, but okay lol

    • @Corey Plate The Democrats in Congress created White Supremacy and even made a flag with the White Supremacy logo on it in SC 1917 and pinned it over the states Capital then refreshed the flag in 1966. Every nightmare in this country is caused by the democrats. There is no disputing this !

    • @Misfits Dream I watched the full video.

    • Kakarot . . . and your point is?

    • Misfits Dream | August 4, 2020 at 10:08 PM | Reply

      @Kakarot So you seen the officer walk up to his car with their gun pointed at him and wonder why the man was in fear of his life?

    • @Misfits Dream I saw the officer draw his weapon after the driver side car door was open and a short exchange. I also saw him holster his weapon after Floyd placed his hands on his head. I saw a man high on fentanyl and meth who immediately became erratic after the exchange. I saw the police arrest him and lead him patiently to a squad car where he began resisting arrest. I saw him trying desperately to avoid arrest. I saw him lunge out of the squad car onto the ground. I saw a police officer kneel on his neck for nine minutes, I saw him die. I saw the whole video.

    • Misfits Dream | August 4, 2020 at 10:39 PM | Reply

      @Kakarot You saw but didn’t listen then. Black people already assume that white cops have it out for them. So when a white cop walks up to your vehicle with his gun drawn. A black man is going to express fear. George even said he was afraid for his life. You did not watch a man on drug. It was proven by an independent doctor he was on no drugs. He never resisted arrest. Everytime the officer told him to stop resisting he replied that he wasn’t. The man was scared. When he had the so called drug episode you are talking about. He screams out that he is claustrophobic. That’s why he screams he can’t breathe. The thought of being confined in that car was petrifying. He then asked to be laid on the ground. You going to tell me the only way to restrain him was to put your knee on his neck?

  10. Omg…. CNN…. You guys are unprofessional… Can’t you just report? Report! Not twist… Audiences can see…

  12. Your warnings needs to state “what you’re about to watch is hand picked pieces of a 28 min video…we picked the most dramatic parts that entice riots”

    • Where can I find the full video

    • Lopez Alabama | August 4, 2020 at 10:34 PM | Reply

      @Misfits Dream no, but the fact that he had drugs in his system and claimed to have trouble breathing before being on the ground or having pressure on his neck makes it difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt in the court of law that Chauvin’s actions alone killed Floyd. Also that type of hold was apparently taught and/or permitted by the department at the time, making a claim of excessive or inappropriate force more difficult to prove as well. Their best bet is probably to target the duration of which the hold was applied, perhaps they’ll be able to make the case he performed the hold for too long

    • exactly!

    • Misfits Dream | August 4, 2020 at 10:42 PM | Reply

      @Lopez Alabama A doctor proved he had no drugs in his system. Also, please provide evidence where a choke hold like that is permitted. Not to mention, there were four officers there. Even if the choke hold is permitted by the department. The lethal force was not justified. The man claimed to be claustrophobic and did not wish to be in the car. He was not charged yet therefore he did not need to be in the car. He asked to be on the ground. Earlier in the video, he is asked to sit along the wall. He does it with no problem. So why would him laying on the ground be a problem?

      @Alex Nowicki Because he was having trouble breathing from the drugs in his system, which cause respiratory problems.

      He first time he said he can’t breathe , was because he was having a panic attack . Mind was racing probably. The man was having a bad trip . These don’t time he said he couldn’t breath on the ground , he was definitely couldn’t breath by the lack of oxygen from a knee in his neck .

      He is saying he can’t breathe because he is claustrophobic. The idea of him being confined to that car is causing him to panic. There isn’t any “fake news”. The officer being on his neck made it worse. Tf is wrong with you people. You guys watched a officer choke a man to death and yet you side with the officer.

      I noticed that too. Right from the get go he’s saying he can’t breathe. The thing is, I believe him lol because he’s high maybe having panic attack picturing his future in jail or whatever, but he WAS saying it from the beginning.

    • George did mention in the full video that he was huffing earlier which is difluoroethane in air cans.

    • GrayHawK1 I didn’t catch that part

    • Misfits Dream You do realize he was taken out of a car with closed windows, right? If he was claustrophobic, why was he driving in a car with his windows up?
