Robin,

It seems Mr. Floyd was not cooperative and refused to get into the backseat of the squad car after initially resisting arrest and then proceeded to act out by stiffening his body and intentionally falling. I am guessing that is standard procedure so that the handcuffed person cannot interfere with the officer driving. We can all read what was explained. As with some past times of arrest there was and is more to the story than initially thought.

If the police could not get him into the back seat of the cruiser, they should have simply called in a "paddy wagon" and loaded him in the back of it. I find it hard to believe that the police department of a major city (Minneapolis) does not have a "paddy wagon."

Norm.
