(no subject)

The Daily Mail (is it the British Daily Mail? their youtube channel is mostly about American news) has somehow got hold of the bodycam footage from at least one of the policemen who took part in the arrest of George Floyd. There must be some other videos, too, because what the TV news showed includes parts that are not in that video.

Still, interesting to watch. I wonder if it would have toned down the level of public indignation if it had been released immediately after the newsmaking video. It sure busts Maxine Waters’ fantasies about how "some of these officers leave home thinking I'm gonna get me one today".
