Newly released video shows Minnesota police officers brutally assaulting an unarmed, already handcuffed George Floyd while inside the back of a patrol car. The assault took place moments before Floyd was removed from the police vehicle and killed.
Floyd died as a result of now ex-police officer Derek Chauvin, pressing his knee against the back of George Floyd’s neck, cutting off his air supply while fellow Minnesota officers – Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Keung watched.
Derek Chauvin was ultimately arrested and charged with 3rd degree murder. The other officers involved have yet to be arrested and charged.
Video of George Floyd’s death sparked a national outcry which has now resulted in multiple protests throughout the United States.
