New Video Shows George Floyd Was Dragged Without Resisting

George's Sister Says Firing 'Murderous' Cops Not Enough, Charging Them With Murder Will ...


George Floyd's sister on Wednesday doubled down on calls to have four police officers charged with murder after they were fired over a video of one white officer kneeling on her brother's neck during his arrest.

Bridgett Floyd told the Today show 'firing them is not enough justice', adding: 'I would like for those officers to be charged with murder because that’s exactly what they did. They murdered my brother; he was crying for help.'

Wearing a t-shirt with her brother's words 'I can't breathe' on it, she added: 'I don't need them to be suspended and able to work in another state or another county. Their licenses should be taken away; their jobs should be taken away, and they should be put in jail for murder. Firing them is just not enough.

'I believe that justice will be served — I have enough faith to stand on it.'

Two of George Floyd's cousins had already said the firing of the officers was just 'a start' after watching footage of the shocking incident and the cops 'murdered our cousin'.

The family's lawyer has called for white cop Derek Chauvin to be charged with murder and the other three officers involved charged as murder accomplices as he revealed Chauvin knelt on Floyd's neck for a staggering eight minutes and blasted the case as 'worse than Eric Garner.'

Already, new video has shown that George Floyd was dragged from his car without resisting arrest, handcuffed and manhandled on sidewalk before being 'murdered' by Minneapolis cop who knelt on his neck

New video footage shows the moment George Floyd was pulled from his car by police, moments before a white officer pinned him to the ground by his neck in an altercation that led to his death and sparked national calls for justice in Minneapolis.

Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was filmed losing consciousness on Monday after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck as he arrested him for allegedly trying to use forged documents at a local deli.

The father of two died in the hospital after the incident, which is now under investigation by the FBI and has prompted thousands of protesters to take to the streets.

Their names have not been officially released, however the two cops seen on Monday's video have been identified by the Floyd family's lawyer as Derek Chauvin and Tou Thao.

Cops were reported to have located Floyd, who was suspected of forgery, in his car around 8pm before ordering him to exit the vehicle, according to a police statement. A spokesman alleged Floyd got out of the car before 'physically resisting officers'.

However, new video footage, obtained by FOX 9, has shed light on the moments leading up to Floyd's arrest, showing two officers manhandling and forcibly removing him from his car as he is placed in handcuffs outside the Cup Foods grocery store on 38th and Chicago Ave in south Minneapolis.
