RedState: Late on Monday, The Daily Mail posted full body cam videos from two of the officers charged in connection with the death of George Floyd. These videos have been kept out of the public domain by Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, and now we know why.
The videos are from the body cams worn by Officer Thomas Lane and Officer Alex Kueng. The two videos run a combined 18 minutes long. Full version are posted below, and after the videos I have comments with time-stamped referenced.
Lane Body Cam – Video No. 1. This video is 8:38.
It takes about 30 seconds for Floyd to be able to follow the instruction to put his hands on the steering wheel of the car so the officer can see them. Floyd is talking rapidly and clearly not listening of following the instructions he’s being given.
From :30 to 1:30, Floyd fails to follow the simple direction to step out of the car and face away from the officer. He repeatedly says “Please, please.” “Please don’t shoot me”. At the point he makes those comments the officer has holstered his firearm, which he only took out at the start of the encounter because Floyd failed to follow the simple comment to show his hands.
At 1:48 when Floyd finally exits the vehicle the officers move to handcuff him. Floyd’s conduct can’t be described as “combative” or “fighting, but it cannot be said either that he was cooperative and compliant with the instructions he was being given.
After Floyd is cuffed, Lane turns his attention to the passengers who had already exited the car, while the other officer walked Floyd from the car over to the wall of a building and sat him down.
Lane asks the female why Floyd was acting “all squirrelly” and she said “I don’t know.” Go here
