A British newspaper has published new footage of George Floyd’s arrest. It can be seen how the black American appears to be panicking during his arrest, and the police beg not to shoot him.
Floyd died in May after an officer knelt on his neck for minutes on his arrest in Minneapolis.
Images of Floyd who repeatedly make it clear that they have not been able to get air went around the world and caused considerable outrage.
The British Daily Mail says it has now obtained new footage of the arrest. They come from the cameras that officers wear on their bodies.
A video on the newspaper’s site shows an agent pulling Floyd out of a car with a firearm drawn.
Floyd immediately seems very upset. He sobs and begs for his life. “Please don’t shoot me, Mr Agent. Please,” he says. “I’m not going to shoot you,” responds the policeman.
