Derek Chauvin trial: New video shows George Floyd pleading with officers

  • Published on:  4/1/2021
  • DEREK Chauvin's bodycam footage was made public during the third day of his trial, showing him pull George Floyd by the neck before his camera falls due to the struggle that ensues.

    Jurors were shown never-before-seen bodycam footage of Floyd pleading with officers during his arrest, telling them "I'm not a bad guy" before gasping for breath while Chauvin had his knee over his neck for over nine minutes.

    Chauvin's bodycam footage shows him lifting Floyd by the neck as the two struggle to the floor, ultimately unpinning his camera and rendering that video useless.

    The footage shows Chauvin and Officer Thomas Lane struggling with Floyd to get him inside the police car, and Chauvin's camera falling to the ground during the fracas.

    Lane's bodycam then showed Chauvin's camera on the street while the famous bystander video caught the rest of Chauvin's knee on Floyd's neck.

    Floyd is seen on tape pleading for his life as Chauvin defends his actions, saying "that's one person's opinion" after Charles McMillian, a bystander, is heard off-camera taking issue with Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck.
