They showed a fair bit of it live on mainstream news to start with. Think it got a bit too graphic to continue. From what I saw the more the crowd pleaded with the cop to remove his knee the more he was determined to keep it there. Dread to think what will happen if there's a not guilty verdict.

Sadly many think it is only a matter of when.

Have you ever heard of a series called Black-ish?  It's on demand on Disney Star and remember seeing this episode roughly when it aired about 5 years ago which has pretty obvious similarities with what happened a couple of years later to George Floyd:

Really interesting to see it written in a sit-com from the perspective of a black family who've 'made it'.
