The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Derek Chauvin trial day 1 key moments: Full footage of George Floyd’s final moments shown to jurors” – below is their description.
An emergency responder was so disturbed by the sight of former police officer Derek Chauvin pinning George Floyd to the ground that she “called the police” on him, prosecutors told the court as Mr Chauvin’s murder trial began in Minneapolis on Monday.
Opening arguments in the highly-charged trial began with prosecutor Jerry Blackwell detailing how Mr Chauvin knelt on Mr Floyd’s neck for a total of nine minutes and 29 seconds last May as the unarmed black man said “I can’t breathe” 27 times before growing silent and unresponsive.
As he outlined the sequence of events, Mr Blackwell told the court that several witnesses to the incident, including the 911 dispatcher who sent the officers to the scene, were so disturbed by Mr Chauvin’s actions that they “called the police on the police”.
