Absolutely correct!They’re trained that if the prisoner losses consciousness that they immediately render aid.
That wasn’t followed.
From everything I can find, the mention of putting something in his mouth and swallowing it was from a previous arrest in 2019 where he did swallow drugs in order to conceal them when being approached by officers.He also blocked arteries and bad heart and had coronavirus and has soon they got him out he went 0 to 100. This autopsy and so forth I cant the video I mentioned but found another will try to load it
The 20-page report released Wednesday shows that Floyd tested positive for the virus in early April. It also confirmed fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system at the time of death.www.npr.org
Thanks!According to KTVU attorney Earl Gray, who is representing former officer Thomas Lane, alleged in a new court filing that Floyd overdosed on fentanyl while resisting arrest on May 25. He claims Floyd somehow managed to swallow the drugs while the cops were taking him into custody.
Gray claims that according to body cam footage, there was a white spot on Floyd’s tongue that disappeared, and it looked like “2 milligrams of fentanyl, a lethal dose.”
The court docs also read, “All he had to do is sit in the police car, like every other defendant who is initially arrested. While attempting to avoid his arrest, all by himself, Mr. Floyd overdosed on fentanyl. Given his intoxication level, breathing would have been difficult at best. Mr. Floyd’s intentional failure to obey commands, coupled with his overdosing, contributed to his own death."
If you look closely you will see his hands weren’t in his pockets. He’s wearing gloves that blend in with his pants as he had his hands on his thighs. You can debate whether having his hands on his thighs is damning but the pockets thing is inaccurate.What was Mr Floyd going to do with his head that required a knee on the neck but still allowed the officer to have his hands in his pockets like he was waiting on a sanwich in line at subway ?????
This is a conflict. It’s very damaging IMO. It tells me the man is not really struggling snd the officer is making a statement. “ look at what I can do “
Here’s one pic showing his left hand in his pocket with the knee on Mr Floyds neck while Mr Floyd was handcuffed.If you look closely you will see his hands weren’t in his pockets.

Mr Floyd lost consciousness and the officer did not render aid, but rather kept the knee on the neck.
Witnesses repeatedly begged the officers to “ check his pulse, he’s dying”
Mr Floyd subsequently died.
Now we get to have a trial because a dumbass cop didn’t follow his training and render aid.
It’s not about me. It’s about the evidence, we are discussing a trial and the evidence that’s been presented.You would be comfortable in a country where it's guilty until proven innocent.
