George Floyd had the weight of 3 full-grown men on him — not just Derek Chauvin on his neck — when he was killed … as a new angle of the deadly incident reveals.
The video, obtained by NBC News, is from the opposite side of the street from the original video … so, for the first time, we can see the other 2 now ex-officers, who not only subdued him in handcuffs … but kept him pinned down for more than 8 minutes.
Throughout the 16 seconds of video, you can hear George saying he can’t breathe and begging, “Please let me stand.”
In the horrific original video, we only saw Chauvin with his knee on George’s neck. This new clip was shot sometime earlier.
As we reported, Chauvin maintained his knee on George’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds … according to the criminal complaint. Also, for 2 minutes and 53 seconds of that time, the 46-year-old man was non-responsive.
The complaint also says one of the other 2 officers, seen in this new video on George’s back and legs, suggested they flip him on his side when he said he couldn’t breathe.
According to the complaint, Chauvin said, “No staying put where we got him.”
