Based on the video, the incident started as a traffic stop of some sort, which ended with George being led away in cuffs.
The video shows 2 vehicles parked at the sidewalk, and eventually, 2 officers approach one of the cars and ask everyone to step out.
A man and a woman emerge from the passenger side, while George is taken out by another officer on the driver’s side …
The cops get George to stand up and lead him over to the sidewalk where they sit him down. He isn’t doing a whole lot of resisting the rest of the way.
Another police officer eventually arrived, and George was walked across the street and off camera. He was not being led by the officer who was eventually seen with his knee on George’s neck.
COPS SIDE OF THE STORY
Police say they were responding to a call for a possible forgery.
We’re told an employee at a nearby business says George had attempted to pay with a $10 bill they suspected was counterfeit and, as is company policy, had reported it to police.
Minneapolis police first suggested in a statement that George resisted arrest but the fresh footage debunks that falsehood.
STATE OF EMERGENCY
President Donald Trump responded to the situation and said its a sad day. He reveals that the situation would be properly investigated.
This situation has brought a state of bewilderment in Minneapolis as protester are seen destroying cops properties and cops are seen raging and shooting tear gas canisters.
