Continue reading to watch a 10-minute video that shows the man was not resisting and officer continuously pulls his knee to the neck.

The man apparently suffocated due to oxygen deficiency.

Police reported that officers were responding to a report of a forgery in progress.

“Officers were advised that the suspect was sitting on top of a blue car and appeared to be under the influence,” a police statement said.

In the video, two officers can be seen that have arrived and located the suspect. He is a black male believed to be in his 40s, in his car. He was ordered to get off his car.

Getting out of the car, he physically resisted officers. Police officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and consciously noted he seemed to be suffering medical distress.

This that the man was under pressure was obvious as videos show. This, in fact, is distressing to see things like this.

However, officers called for an ambulance. The man died minutes later.

No weapons of any type were used by anyone involved in this incident. Body-worn cameras were on and activated during this incident.

Minneapolis mayor responded to the incident

Minneapolis Mayor, Jacob Frey, spoke the incident in a Tuesday morning press conference, calling it “simply awful” and saying “it was traumatic and it serves as a clear reminder of just how far we have to go.”

Frey said:

“I believe what I saw, and what I saw was wrong at every level. This does not reflect the values that Chief Arradondo has worked tirelessly to instill. It does not represent the training we’ve invested in or the measures we’ve taken to ensure accountability.”

“Being black in America should not be a death sentence. For five minutes, we watched as a white officer pressed his knee into the neck of a black man. For five minutes. When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic human sense.”
