New George Floyd Video Shows Familiar Ritual of Racist Police Terror

In Minneapolis, newly released police body camera footage reveals devastating new details of George Floyd’s killing on Memorial Day, showing that officers pulled a gun, swore at George Floyd to “get out of the f—ing car,” as he wept and pleaded, “Please don’t shoot me.”

The video also showed that medics did not appear to rush to Floyd’s aid after they arrived on the scene.

Democracy Now! discusses the latest developments in the case that sparked an ongoing national uprising against racism and police violence, with Marc Lamont Hill, author of Nobody: Casualties of America’s War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond.

Lamont Hill also discusses how he has tested positive for COVID-19.
