Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “George Floyd’s encounter with Minneapolis police shown in new video”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

New video from a different angle has emerged showing George Floyd being detained by Minneapolis police officers shortly before his death, according to a report.

The footage, which has been circulating on social media, was shot from the opposite side of the street from where Officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck, NBC News reported.

The new video appears to have been recorded right before the one that sparked outrage over Floyd’s death after he pleaded with the cop that he couldn’t breathe, according to the network.

NBC News’ Social Newsgathering team verified the new footage — which appears to show Floyd in the custody of three cops — using previously reported video of the moment he was detained, Google Street View imagery and statements from police, the outlet reported.

NBC News said it used several markers from previous footage to verify the new video, including that the police vehicle can be seen and a yellow bike is shown leaning against a wall behind it.
