On day three of Derek Chauvin's trial, who is the defendant in the case of George Floyd's death, ended with a series of new revelations, testimonies and potential evidence as the courtroom played bodycam and phone recorded videos that covered the incident.
Former officer Thomas Lane's bodycam video showed Floyd crying for mercy from officials arresting him as he yelled, "Please don't shoot me" multiple times as the officers approached his vehicle, reported CNN.
In another bodycam footage, recovered from officer J. Alexander Kueng's equipment, Floyd can be heard saying, "I don't want no problems. I didn't do nothing" while sitting in a corner in handcuffs.
The prosecutors in the trial have been summoning a series of bystanders and witnesses to help describe and outline the events that unfolded in the May 2020 incident, which triggered multiple protests across the country while taking the shape of the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
Charles McMillian, a bystander who testified at the trial on Wednesday, argued with Chauvin after Floyd was escorted away in an ambulance. He said, "I don't respect what you did." The officer argued back, "We got to control this guy because he’s a sizable guy, and it looks like he is probably on something", reported CNN.
Chauvin faces up to 40 years in jail if convicted of the most serious charge -- second-degree murder, reported AFP.
