CNN's Adrienne Broaddus says she wishes there were “citizen journalists” like Darnella Frazier two decades ago when her own cousin was shot and killed by police. In the wake of George Floyd's death, she says Frazier’s actions provide a valuable lesson for the media.

Thanks to Darnella Frazier, we know the original police statement about the George Floyd incident was massively different from reality. It’s a good reminder - to always be skeptical of power… law enforcement, media, government. My @FourthWatch  newsletter:

If it weren’t for the video shot by then-17-year-old Darnella Frazier on her phone, that’s likely all that would have been released about the death of George Floyd, @radleybalko  writes

It's natural to celebrate Darnella Frazier's video of George Floyd's death because it helped convict his killer, but constantly replaying such videos not only causes trauma, but often reinforces racism instead of fighting it

Darnella Frazier's video of George Floyd being pinned by the neck shocked the world and was used as key evidence.

Darnella Frazier's video of George Floyd being pinned by the neck shocked the world and was key evidence in ex-cop Derek Chauvin's murder conviction.

Darnella Frazier, the teen who recorded the now-infamous video of Derek Chauvin pressing his knee on George Floyd's neck last May, is being hailed as a hero following the former Minneapolis police officer's conviction on murder and manslaughter charges.

Thinking of Darnella Frazier who filmed the death of George Floyd at 17 and quite literally changed the world. She testified there are nights she stays up “apologizing & apologizing to George Floyd for not doing more.” But, she did so, so much to get to this murder conviction.

Darnella Frazier, then 17, filmed Derek Chauvin as he knelt on George Floyd's neck. The footage drove much of the public’s understanding of his death, which was different from the Minneapolis Police Department’s initial account of what happened.

Darnella Frazier, at 17, changed the world by filming George Floyd's death. Her video is at the heart of this trial, the $27M settlement for Floyd's family, the national racial reckoning, and so much more. And, she is haunted by what more she could have done. My goodness.

Remember, 17 year old Darnella Frazier testified she felt threatened, mace was pulled, when witnesses expressed concern about George Floyd. She was scared, but she stayed. She kept taping. A 9 year old girl took the stand. She knew what she was seeing was wrong. Bravery.

Darnella Frazier who filmed death of George Floyd at 17: "There have been nights I stayed up apologizing & apologizing to George Floyd for not doing more & not physically interacting & not saving his life. But it’s like not what I should have done, it’s what he should have done."

Darnella Frazier summing up feelings of so Black people: "When I look at George Floyd, I look at my dad, I look at brothers, I look at my cousins, my uncles because they are all black. ..I have black friends & I look at that & I look at that how that could have been one of them."

Darnella Frazier's 9-year-old cousin testified that Derek Chauvin had to be moved off of George Floyd's neck by EMTs. Of seeing this, she said, "I was sad and kind of mad ... cause it felt like he was stopping his breathing and kind of like hurting him."

Emotional takeaway from the morning is that another witness - 19 year old Christopher Martin - feels guilty that if he had done something differently, George Floyd might be alive. We heard that from Darnella Frazier and firefighter Genevieve Hansen who tried to help.

Genevieve Hansen, the off-duty firefighter on the scene as Derek Chauvin kneeled on GeorgeFloyd's neck, like Darnella Frazier is emotional as she describes what she wished she would have done to help Floyd. She, like others, called police on the police after what she witnessed.

@Lawrence : "Those 4 police officers were not fired because of what they did on the street. They were fired because of what 17-year-old Darnella Frazier did on that street. She pressed record on her phone...videoing the police knee on George Floyd's neck."
