Leaked Bodycam Video Shows George Floyd Begging Cops Not to Shoot Him During Arrest (Watch)
*Bodycam footage from the two officers accused of murdering George Floyd, leaked to DailyMail.com on Monday, shows Floyd saying, “Mr. Officer, please don’t shoot me” before the struggle that ended with his death on May 25.
Transcripts from the videos were released in mid-July but a judge in Minneapolis had ruled the video could only be viewed in the courthouse, meaning only select people have seen the footage, which includes more than 18 minutes from Officer Alex Kueng’s bodycam and 10 minutes from Officer Thomas Lane. They were the first two officers to arrive on the scene after a complaint that Floyd had attempted to buy cigarettes with a fake $20 bill to buy cigarettes at Cup Foods, a store in the Powderhorn Park section of Minneapolis.
The videos show Floyd in distress as Lane points a handgun at his head and another nonchalantly picks a pebble from the squad car tire seconds before Floyd draws his last breath.
The footage has now been leaked to DailyMail.com so the world can finally see the tragedy of Floyd’s last minutes as the cops were mindless of Floyd’s anguish.
