New Video Provides Evidence George Floyd Did Not Resist Arrest Despite Officers’ Claims (Update)

TSRmUpdatez: As the FBI moves forward in its investigation of George Floyd’s death, new video shared by civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump disputes officers’ claims that Floyd was resisting arrest.

A restaurant’s security cameras captured the moments before the tragic incident, raising questions about why officers used lethal force against George Floyd.

Floyd, who is a native of Houston, was reportedly in Minneapolis for work. Officers claimed they responded to a call of a suspect sitting on top of a car appearing to be under the influence. Officers also claimed Floyd physically resisted arrest.

But the new video shows George Floyd being taken out of his vehicle and it appears he was cooperating with responding officers. The owner of the restaurant also told local news outlets that there was nothing on the video that his restaurant captured that showed he resisted arrest.

The original video that had social media distraught showed an officer with his knee on Floyd’s neck. After Floyd told officers he couldn’t breathe, he later became unresponsive and later died from his injuries.

The city announced that the four officers have since been fired as the FBI steps in to investigate. 

Protesters who are demanding justice for Floyd are calling for murder charges to be brought against the officers involved, especially given this new evidence.
