It is said that, in every large organization, the fecal matter flows downhill. Anyone who has ever worked in government can attest to the truth of that statement. But, for dramatic proof of that proposition, take a look at this picture.
This is an illustration from the Minneapolis Police Departments official training materials on how to safely and properly subdue a suspect suffering from excited delirium, a potentially lethal medical condition which, due to the rising use and abuse of illicit drugs, has grown to epidemic proportions on the streets of America.
Look closely. The depicted suspect is flat on the ground with his head turned to the side in what the illustration calls the recovery position to alleviate positional asphyxia. The officer on the left is kneeling on the side of the suspects neck.
Could this and related parts of the officially approved and mandated Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) training curriculum be why former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin saw fit to kneel on the side of George Floyds neck? And could it be the reason why former officers Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng, and Tou Thao assisted Chauvin as he knelt on the side of Floyds neck?
As will be explained in detail below, throughout Floyds confrontation with the police, he was at imminent risk of death from sudden cardiac arrhythmia caused by excited delirium. So it was that these officers followed the MPDs official procedures for how to properly and safely subdue someone in that life-threatening condition. In doing so, they were not only keeping Floyd in the prescribed recovery position to alleviate his risk of asphyxiation, they were also keeping an agitated and delirious Floyd from harming himself as they awaited the arrival of the ambulance

Who is going to be brave enough to start wearing Free Derek Chauvin t-shirts in public?
You just proved shelterguy’s post.
It was a joke, hence the smileyface. :)
You are speaking of those who have convicted these officers I presume? Add Judge Porto that classification too. She already declared the officer guilty of 1st degree murder!
Sheesh. I called him a name because he said he was called names even though he has now been vindicated. It was a joke. Hence the smiley face. :)
This is the first time I’ve seen the MPD training slide made public. I’ve heard rumblings about the knee-on-neck hold being an approved MPD restraint but this is the first confirmation I’ve seen. Seems like a real game changer. I’m surprised it didn’t come out sooner (or maybe I just missed it).
Floyd had almost 4 times the lethal dose of fentanyl in his system, plus a number of other drugs.
“Theyll get off in a jury verdict or on appeal, and then the riots will start again.”
They will be convicted by a specially select jury of George Floyd’s peers.
That's a good question. I'm not a LEO and know nothing about anatomy or martial arts or restraining violent bad guys, but (as long-time owner of a neck and skull) I think it would be a lot tougher to escape if your neck were being held down rather than your skull.
Same here, not LEO but if you didn’t hold the head down the person could smack his head repeatedly.
Better leverage, better motion control (you need to roll to get out from under, the base of the neck allows you to stop the roll) and it is harder for the subject to pull out from under. You also don’t have to apply pressure until the subject starts trying to escape, the fact that Floyd kept talking strongly suggests that significant pressure was not being applied.
This is going to result in a real mess.
Yeah, article mentions doped-up people in excited delirium. That guy in Baltimore was unrestrained and smacking his head around. George Floyd was violently resisting in the back seat of the patrol car. You need some tough restraint to hold guys down who are really hopped-up on dope.
I was reading the other day that people suspect the violet marxists in Portland are all doped up to both resist pain and give them extra strength to fight the cops.
