Newly leaked video of the Memorial Day arrest of Floyd in Minneapolis shows cops whipping out a gun and pointing it at the bewildered Black man. They then ignored his pleas of claustrophobia and anxiety as they tried to cram him into the backseat of a squad car, according to leaked video of the early moments of his arrest.

Minutes later, Floyd would be dead under the knee of then-officer Derek Chauvin, who kneeled on his neck for close to eight minutes – long after Floyd had gasped, “I can’t breathe,” cried out for his mother, and stopped moving.

Chauvin was fired, then later arrested and charged with second-degree murder. The three officers with him, Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng, are also charged with aiding and abetting murder.
