There was a lot of uproar in America after the death of black George Floyd. The police was calling it an accident. However, a sensational revelation has now been revealed in the matter. A firearm worker in Minneapolis in the US told the court on Tuesday that he was barred from helping black George Floyd. She will again file a statement in court on Wednesday.
‘I was stopped from helping a dying person
Let me tell you that in May last year, Genevi Hansen, one of the people who stopped White Police Officer Derek Chauvin from stabbing Floyd’s neck with his knee, cried while remembering how she could not help Floyd. People were surprised to hear what Hansen told the court. He told, ‘There was a person being killed there. I could provide medical treatment to the best of my ability and this person refused to do so.’
Turned down their pleas to leave Floyd
Hansen was one of the eyewitnesses who witnessed Floyd’s death on May 25, testifying in court on Tuesday. One eyewitness after another told how Chauvin turned down his pleas to leave Floyd. These included the young woman who made a video of Floyd’s arrest, which triggered protests across the country.
Floyd was suffering, but Chauvin didn’t care
18-year-old Darnella Frazier said, ‘He (Chauvin) didn’t care. It seemed that he was not taking care of what we were saying. Floyd was suffering, we were pleading for his help. But we could not do anything. Eventually Floyd succumbed.
Getting sentence up to 40 years
Significantly, Chauvin (45) is accused of pressing Floyd’s neck with his knee for nine minutes and 29 seconds, leading to his death. If proven the most serious charge against Chauvin, he could face up to 40 years in prison. Chauvin’s lawyer Eric Nelson argued, “Derek Chauvin did what was taught in his 19-year career.” Nelson said that the crowd of people watching the incident around Chauvin and his fellow police personnel was raging and Floyd was struggling not to get into the police car. Defense counsel also said Chauvin was not responsible for Floyd’s death.
