Set in the American city of Minneapolis in late May, this leaked video shows George Floyd being arrested and panicking almost immediately. Floyd is asked to put his hands on the steering wheel with a firearm and get out of the car. Floyd, visible in panic, apologizes several times: “Sorry”. He says, “I have done nothing.” He also begs, “Please don’t shoot me.” To which the officer responds, “I’m not going to shoot you.” After that, Floyd is handcuffed.
The images come from the camera that one of the police officers is wearing. The officers were called because Floyd would have paid with a counterfeit banknote.
