The judge in the George Floyd case is allowing the public to see video of a 2019 incident involving Floyd and Minneapolis police. Judge Peter Cahill said he did not think it would taint a potential jury.
Attorney for fired Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane wanted the public to see the video. And the prosecution wanted to prevent it from becoming public. Three body cam videos were released that show different perspectives.
All show George Floyd with Minneapolis police officers on May 6, 2019. He’s a passenger in an unlicensed stop, and he fails to comply with officers initial requests.
“Put your hands on the dash. I’m not going to shoot you, put your hands on the dash,” an officer said as he pulls a weapon and goes on to say, “put hands on dash, the last time I’m going to tell you that. It’s simple.”
Floyd complies and another officer approaches. That officer says, “Open your mouth. Spit out what you’ve got. I’m going to tase you.”
Floyd is out of the vehicle and officers put his hands behind his back and handcuff him. An officer says, “You’re not going to get beat up or nothing if you just follow what we’re asking you to do.”
As officers are searching Floyd you can faintly hear him asking for his mama. He pleads with officers as they say they found a bunch of pills.
An officer said, “Look at how crazy he’s acting. Look at him he’s crying like an adult male too.”
Within four and a half minutes of officers approaching the vehicle, Floyd is in the back of a squad.
Lane’s attorney Earl Gray tells us why he thinks it should not only be made public, but also be admitted into evidence in the case.
“It shows a false narrative by the state. The state is portraying Mr. Floyd as somebody that he isn’t and if you see the 2019 video and compare them, they’re almost identical,” Gray said.
Prosecutors also wanted a two-day seal on any submissions in the case so both sides would have time to object. The judge denied that request.
