Full Video of Minneapolis officers arresting George Floyd before he died has been released to the public


Full length police camera video of Minneapolis officers arresting George Floyd and his harrowing final moments has been compiled and made public.

The video stretches to a total of 30 minutes as the entirety of the arrest recorded by two police body cams was pulled together.

The footage was revealed exclusively by DailyMail.com earlier this month but was officially released Monday after a Hennepin County judge ordered it to be made public.

The video was recorded on the body cameras of former Officers Thomas Lane and Alex J. Kueng.

The officers were the first to arrive on the scene after a complaint that Floyd had attempted to pass a fake $20 bill to buy cigarettes at Cup Foods, a store in the Powderhorn Park section of Minneapolis.

The footage begins in the store where Floyd allegedly tried to buy goods with the suspect bill.

The footage then sees Officer Lane tap on the window of his SUV to confront Floyd

A staff member rushes up to them waving the banknote. 'Before they drive off. He's parked right here. It's a fake bill from the gentleman,' he tells the cops.

Lane and Kueng then both approach Floyd's blue Mercedes SUV on the other side of the street. Lane goes to the driver's side where Floyd is sitting at the wheel and Kueng approaches the passenger side, where Floyd's ex, Shawanda Hill, is in the back seat and a friend, Maurice Hall, is in the front.

The footage sees officer Thomas Lane tapping on the window of Floyd's SUV to confront him about the allegation.

Floyd does not immediately open the door, but once the door is open, Lane pulls out his handgun and points it straight at Floyd's head.

After Floyd is told to get out of the car, he is questioned and seen pleading with the officers as they struggle to place him in a squad car in the minutes leading up to his death on May 25.

In the video footage it can be seen that Floyd was not trying to run away and instead he decided to sit in his car with two friends, giving the cops the opportunity to approach

Lane's video shows Lane pulling his gun when Floyd does not immediately show his hands.

'Hey man, I'm sorry,' Floyd says and apologizes again before Lane gets belligerent.

'Put your f***ing hands up right now! Let me see your other hand,' the cop is heard saying.

Floyd does not immediately put his hands on the wheel. 'Put your f***ing hand up there,' Lane orders him. 'Jesus Christ, keep your f**king hands on the wheel.'
