This is the shocking moment Minneapolis officer Tou Thao was seen ignoring pleas for help from bystanders as white cop Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds.
The video was shared on Sunday morning by Ben Crump, a civil rights attorney representing Floyd’s family.
‘This is beyond disturbing, even harder to watch than the first video,’ Crump warned in the caption of the video.
Crump then wrote: ‘Tou Thao stood guard as Derek Chauvin MURDERED George Floyd … while witnesses of the execution tried to stand up for JUSTICE, tried to save George’s life!
‘The protest of those bystanders, who refused to just stand by and let it happen, has reverberated around the world — fueling our protest against injustice and police brutality!! 8 minutes 46 seconds.’
‘The four ex-officers MUST be convicted of MURDER for this hideous atrocity! They MUST all be held accountable!!’
