(St. Paul, MN) — Details surrounding the death of George Floyd in May 2020 are emerging at the federal civil rights trial of three ex-Minneapolis police officers. Body camera footage played in court yesterday showed that two of the former officers withheld key information about Floyd’s killing from a superior. Withheld details included that Floyd was pinned under a colleague’s knee for over nine minutes, that they couldn’t detect his pulse, and that he had appeared to stop breathing. The footage wasn’t played during the murder trial of former officer Derek Chauvin, who had pinned Floyd under his knee.
