MINNEAPOLIS (VINnews) — Videos released on social media have demonstrated that not one but three policemen kneeled on George Floyd during his arrest in Minneapolis last week and seemingly caused his death. A fourth policeman is seen watching the scene but did not intervene to save Floyd’s life.
The clips show Floyd face down on the ground with three policemen kneeling on top of him including one kneeling on his neck. Floyd can be heard saying weakly “I can’t breathe” and “please let me stand.”
Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder in the case but demonstrators nationwide are demanding that the other policemen involved also be placed on trial for murder.
