An officer told George Floyd that ‘a lot of oxygen to talk’, the body camera transcript showed



Black Lives Matter protested throughout the US and the world: Immediate renewal

“Come on, man. Oh, oh. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. Ah! They will kill me. They will kill me. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. Oh!” Floyd said in response to Chauvin, according to the transcript.

A few minutes later, Floyd was unresponsive and then declared dead.

The transcript details the last moments of Floyd’s life and was taken from a body camera worn by former Minneapolis officers Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng. The documents were released Wednesday as part of a motion filed Tuesday in a state court in Minneapolis.
The motion, submitted by Lane’s lawyer Earl Gray, sought to get Lane’s accusation dismissed by the judge. Lane was accused of aiding and abetting a second-degree murder and aiding and abetting a second-degree murder in Floyd’s death.

Authorities have not released body camera recordings and CNN has not been able to corroborate the transcript. CNN has contacted the court asking for the video mentioned in the motion.

CNN had contacted a lawyer representing the Floyd family.

Floyd died on May 25 after Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes. Lane and Kueng had helped keep Floyd and former officer Tou Thao standing nearby.
Chauvin was charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree murder. Kueng and Thao were accused of aiding and abetting a second-degree murder and aiding and abetting a second-degree murder, the same accusation that Lane faced.

The four officers were fired.

Eric Nelson, a lawyer for Chauvin, declined to comment on the transcript on Wednesday.

Before Floyd was forced to the ground, he told officers that he could not breathe, sharing that he was suffering from Covid-19 and was short of breath, according to the transcript.

Floyd was afraid when officers tried to put him in a patrol car, transcript details, and told officers to “tell my children, I love them. I’m dead.”

Later, when Floyd was pinned to the ground, Lane asked Chauvin whether the officers should move Floyd to his side, raising concerns about the potential for medical emergencies, according to the transcript.

“No, he stays where we got him,” Chauvin answered, the transcript stating.

According to the motion, Lane asked twice whether Floyd should be moved to his side. Chauvin, a 20-year-old training officer and veteran, told Lane to keep him there until the ambulance arrived, according to the motion. Lane was convinced by Chauvin that Floyd was fine and Lane could not see any “intentional danger,” the motion said.

Lane’s lawyer, Gray, said in a motion that his client did not know that Chauvin had committed a crime when they arrested Floyd. Lawyers said the decision to detain Floyd was justified, according to the motion.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
