In 2011 an unarmed Native American man was shot in the chest by police. Nine years later, one of the attending officers, Derek Chauvin, would become infamous over the murder of George Floyd.
A harrowing body cam transcript reveals that Floyd called out for his mother and his children, while former officer Derek Chauvin told him to stop talking.
The cop accused of murdering George Floyd had his first court appearance, by video, from the Oak Park Heights prison.
“I can’t breathe, man,” Floyd cries out to the cops in the video. “Please. Please let me stand.”
