Never Before Seen Body Cam Footage Released
This footage was released late last night and shows the events LEADING UP TO the videos we’ve already seen. It shows how Floyd ended up under the polices knee and how they approached him.
One BLARING mistake on the police’s part that I noticed right away, is that the police never ONCE even mentioned WHY they approached Floyd, DESPITE him asking multiple times why he was being approached. Secondly WHY WAS THE COP’S GUN OUT IN SECONDS OF THE MEETING. Thirdly, there was a big argument of “Floyd was drugged out”, judging from this video, Floyd was TERRIFIED, NOT DRUGGED OUT.
One could quite literally see the TERROR in his eyes. He tells them he’s been shot before, he tells them he has mental issues/battles with anxiety and claustrophobia, he tells them they aren’t listening, IN FACT before he ever hits the ground, HE TELLS THEM THAT THEY WILL KILL HIM!
What’s even more disturbing is that he himself offers to go on the ground at the end of the video. He tells them the car makes him severely uncomfortable, and asks to go on the floor. The police had already deemed him to be not a threat, and he said he would lay down. He truly just wanted to speak with the police, PROBABLY TO FIND OUT WHY HE WAS BEING ARRESTED.
Whatever you think about Floyd, whatever you think about the new video, I hope that this video helps you form a fuller picture. Even if you agree or disagree with me. Personally though, I believe the police to be in the wrong. From the very beginning of the camera rolling.
