Man Dies After Being Handcuffed By MInneapolis Police; Video of Cop Kneeing Man’s Neck

Recommended Posts

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – – The FBI has been called to investigate after a man died Monday night in south Minneapolis after an encounter with Minneapolis police.

In a statement early Tuesday, police described what happened as a medical incident. However, a video posted on social media shows an officer kneeing a man’s neck to the ground for several minutes. Before he goes unconscious, the man, who is black, repeatedly tells officers he can’t breathe.

At a press conference Tuesday morning, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey alluded to the graphic footage, saying: “I believe what I saw, and what I saw was wrong at every level.”

The mayor added: “Being black in America should not be a death sentence.”

According to police, officers responded shortly after 8 p.m. Monday to the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue South, where a man was reportedly trying to use forged documents at Cup Foods.

At the scene, police found the man, who appeared to be in his 40s and intoxicated, in a blue car. Officers told him to get out. Their body cameras were running.

“After he got out, he physically resisted officers,” police spokesman John Elder told reporters early Tuesday. “Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and officers noticed that the man was going into medical distress.”

An ambulance brought the man to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he died shortly after. His name has not been released.

The video posted to social media shows an encounter between Minneapolis police and a man outside Cup Foods. In the nine-minute video, an officer can be seen kneeing a man to the pavement at the side of a squad car. The man can be heard groaning and repeatedly telling police he can’t breathe.

“He’s not even resisting arrest right now, bro,” one bystander tells the officer and his partner. “You’re f—ing stopping his breathing right now, you think that’s cool?”

After about five minutes, the man appears to go unconscious. The bystanders ask for someone to check his pulse. The officer does not lift his knee from the man’s neck until medical personnel arrive and carry him away.

At the Tuesday morning press conference with the mayor, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo did not address the video specifically, but did say that he received information from the community that prompted him to reach out to the FBI. The investigation is now being led by federal authorities. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is also involved.

The two Minneapolis officers are on “relieved of duty status,” the police chief said. This is different from the typical administrative leave, but is still paid with no law enforcement duties.

At least one protest is planned for Tuesday night at the scene of the incident. It is being organized by a number of local activist groups, including the Minneapolis NAACP, Communities Against Police Brutality, and Black Lives Matter Twin Cities.

At the Tuesday morning press conference, the mayor urged protesters to remain mindful of COVID-19 while demonstrating. It was noted that the two officers on the social media video were not wearing face masks.

The mayor also expressed his condolences to the man’s family and the black community.

“He should not have died,” Frey said.

Firing these racist bastards isn't enough. Where are the murder charges? Dylan Roof murdered 9 people in a church and was taken to Burger King afterwards. George Floyd is suspected of forgery and gets murdered by a racist cop with a knee on his neck. This crap has to stop.

every cop on the scene committed murder imo

I agree, but will murder charges be brought against them? It's a shame it hasn't been done yet.

This is just as bad as the Ahmaud Arbery’s death. But, no one cared about it bc it didn’t involve cops. Arbery’s case was actually worse and more corrupted bc the state and district attorney didn’t want to prosecute the two killers at first until the video went viral later. How is Floyd getting more attention than Ahmaud? People didn’t trash the city? People didn’t go out and protest? No BLM? People went out and fugging JOG for Ahmaud.

If throwing rocks and other things at cop cars is considered “peaceful protest”

Bc the FBI is involved now and that’s for them to decide with the district/US attorney.

TB posters, dont go back and forth with Chuck on here. He’s always been an advocate of white supremacy on here. It is not worth the back and forth.

Probably because there is a measure of hope that one or both McMichaels will do time.  Pigs never go to prison for killing black people.

I understand stand. But the DA tried to let the McMichaels go bc the dad used to work for them. That’s more corrupt than anything I’ve ever seen. Protesters, BLM, NAACP and everyone else should be calling for the DA to be fired and lose his or her license. I don’t see that to be the case. You got two white men blocking off Ahmaud with their truck. Then killed him with a long gun. Ahmaud was UNARMED

both murders were horrific, and i'm obviously not taking anything away from the structural cause and repercussions of amaud's death, but floyd was killed by law enforcement. murder by a citizen and murder by the state are very different and  naturally are going to invoke different responses
