Seattle tech giants Amazon and Microsoft issued statements this weekend in response to the outrage and protests over George Floyd's death in Minneapolis.

The death of an African-American man, George Floyd, has not only rocked the U.S. but also the whole world.

However, another video and a CCTV footage obtained by CNN showed that two other officers had their knees on other parts of Floyd, but were not captured in the initial video.

He and three other officers have been fired from the force as well after the video of Floyd's death emerged.

Floyd, 46, died Monday after he was pinned to the ground - handcuffed and unarmed - by a police officer with his knee on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes as he cried out, "I can't breathe".
