In the clip, George Floyd can be heard calling for his family and fearing for his life.
George Floyd's story is one that we have heard all too often in the United States of America. This past week, Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota after a cop pinned him to the ground and kept his knee on him for just shy of nine minutes. Derek Chauvin, the cop responsible for Floyd's death, has been arrested and charged with third-degree and manslaughter. As it stands, the other officers involved are also expected to be charged and many are waiting for justice to be served.
Today, a new video emerged which shows another angle of Floyd's killing although this one is much more chilling. As you can see in the clip below, the person is filming the incident from behind. Floyd is being pinned to the ground by three officers while another one is watching from in front of the cop car. It even seems like the cops are intentionally keeping Floyd behind the police cruiser so that others can't see what's happening.
What makes the video that much more disturbing are Floyd's pleas for help. Floyd can be heard asking the officers to let him stand up although they won't listen and continue to apply pressure despite Floyd's troubled breathing.
The video displays a truly egregious act of police brutality and we can only hope that justice is served moving forward.
