MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Warning: This video contains graphic content and could be difficult for some people to watch.
New police body camera video was released Thursday, showing the perspective of former Minneapolis Police Officer Tou Thao as he tried to control the crowd while his fellow officers restrained George Floyd during the deadly arrest.
In the video, Thao is seen talking to bystanders who are growing more agitated by the minute as Floyd cries out while being restrained by then officers Derek Chauvin, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane.
The body camera video from two of the now-fired Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd was released to the public Monday. On Friday, Hennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill ordered copies of the footage from officers Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng to be released.
The decision was made after a challenge from a media coalition, including FOX 9.

Derek Chauvin, the officer seen kneeling on Floyd's neck in a bystander video, is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
