BBC News published this video item, entitled “Bodycam footage of police during Minneapolis protests – BBC News” – below is their description.

“We’re hunting activists,” a US police officer jokes, adopting the voice of cartoon character Elmer Fudd.

It’s one of the scenes from newly released bodycam footage from the night of 30 May, 2020, as police patrolled Minneapolis five days after the murder of George Floyd, when the city was still under curfew.

While most of the protests were peaceful, there had also been violence, with a police station set alight two days earlier.

An internal police investigation is under way into the conduct of the officers. The BBC asked an activist who was involved in the protests against police brutality, as well as a former NYPD detective to analyse the footage.
