The third day of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder trial resumes on Wednesday with testimonies from bystanders and new footage of George Floyd in Cup Foods moments before the police were called.
On Tuesday, the teen who took the video capturing Floyd’s death said she would sometimes stay up late at night thinking of Floyd, apologizing to him for “not saving his life.”
Floyd, a Black man, died in police custody on May 25, 2020, after Chauvin pinned his knee against Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes. Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Christopher Martin, the store clerk that was working when George Floyd passed a counterfeit bill, said he offered to pay the tab, but the manager sent him back out for a second time. So Martin goes back out with two more co-workers to talk to Floyd about the $20 bill.
Martin described George Floyd’s reaction when he told him to come back to Cup Foods, “He just seemed like he didn’t might want this to happen.”
