Via the Star Tribune:
The video begins innocuously as a Brooklyn Park police officer responds to a complaint of noise coming from a parked car, then returns to his squad for a warrant check.
Within minutes, it becomes indisputable footage of a cop’s fight for his life as he is repeatedly punched in the head, then placed in a chokehold.
“[Expletive] kill you!” 25-year-old Lance Carr screams as he grabs for officer Sean Hyman’s gun. His voice hoarse with fear and exhaustion, Hyman, unable to reach his radio, screams for help at least 20 times. A bewildered dispatcher, unable to hear him, asks if he is “still good” and for a status update.
Then Hyman’s gun goes off.
