Media narrative on death of George Floyd implodes after body-cam leak

Footage of George Floyd's arrest leaked to a British tabloid has had more than 2 million views on YouTube in only one day - with most of the comments denouncing the media lies about alleged police violence against a black man.

He defended his son’s tweet in support of Antifa to stop “the white power terrorist[s] that are actually attacking us”. Ellison said of the Antifa manifesto: “I just found the book that strike [sic] fear in the heart of Donald Trump.” Ellison is the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Photo: Twitter

    The Daily Mail published the video that has been hidden from the public by Minneapolis Attorney General Keith Ellison for more than two months.

    On the social media platform, it was also noted how the video was being blocked from appearing on YouTube’s “Trending” page. Angry viewers called for the media to be “defunded” rather than the police.

    For two months at least, The New York Times had hyped Floyd’s alleged death at the hands of police. Strangely, not one article has been published on the new leaked video showing the actual arrest.

    An Associated Press article on the leak, simply ignored decisive details and merely mentioned that the video had been leaked without providing a link to or a description of the video. Instead AP reported that police were trying to hunt down whoever leaked the footage.

    CNN heavily edited the leaked raw body-cam footage to show only 30 seconds (of 8 minutes and 20 seconds) taken completely out of context – making it seem as if Floyd was complying rather than continuously resisting.

    The facts surrounding the black criminal’s arrest are clear however: Floyd had been complaining of not being able to breath long before the police physically intervened to restrain him. A transcript of the arrest already provided hard evidence that George Floyd was complaining of not being able to breath before he himself asked police to place him on the ground.

    Floyd, who had a criminal history, was arrested for using a counterfeit bill to defraud a local small business.

    This new video provides the visual proof that Floyd was not killed by police but rather suffering from respiratory problems caused by a Fentanyl overdose. His inability to breath thus had nothing to do with the neck restraint applied by the Minneapolis officer.

    CBS News nevertheless deceptively edited the video to make it seem as if Floyd was not being uncooperative while including a rant by his lawyer claiming Floyd was targeted just for being “a black man”.


    Floyd had obviously lied when he told police he was not on drugs despite being high on Fentanyl and testing positive for methamphetamine. He had also been suffering from various heart conditions, including “severe” and multifocal arteriosclerotic heart disease, hypertensive heart disease, an enlarged heart and a clinical history of hypertension, according to the Hennepin County medical autopsy report.

    Notably the police were not physically aggressive towards Floyd either – they did not push him around or assault him.

      The argument that drugs might be responsible for the death of George Floyd does not hold up, the New York Times claimed on June 25 because “Mr. Floyd behaves rationally and appropriately given the circumstances”. The leak now published totally contradicts this “black victim” narrative.

      If anyone has noticed there are two video clips with two different arresting officers. The price of gas the day George supposedly died was much higher than what is shown in one of the videos. The dashcam video in the police car was dated one day later. The man on George’s neck is not wearing a police officer’s shirt. It is very difficult to put a badge on crooked on a police officer’s shirt. The Asian man does not have a magazine in his pistol.
