“””4 times the lethal dose of fentynal and meth. More than reasonable doubt.””””
I have been saying this from the beginning.
The cops went by the book on how to deal with someone who was loaded to the gills with drugs.
Saint Floyd was 43 years old and in very poor health. In addition he had the KungFlu which is tough on the lungs as well as other parts.
All four cops will walk free when the evidence is presented to the juries.
And America will burn.
Me too. This was my first reaction to this article.
If the numbers I saw were correct, it was actually a little under 4x, but close enough to call it 4.
Unless I’m mistaken, I think Floyd was 47.
The autopsy also found no trauma to the neck area, which means the cop DID NOT put enough weight on saint floyd’s “neck” to cause bruising. If I saw it correctly, the knee was also not on his neck, but at the base of the neck, around where the shoulder blades are. This is what they are trained to do, since it’s unlikely the person will choke due to weight at that position. It serves to hold a person in place without much pressure needed at all. You can hold a person down with one finger that way, if their hands are tied behind their back. Put your finger just below the shirt collar, against the spine, the person cannot get up.
Same can be done face up with a hair from a horse’s tail. One horesehair, held on the bridge of the nose, you cannot get up.
And what the cops did was proper procedure for an overdose situation. If someone had had the presence of mind to turn Jimi Hendrix on his stomach and turn his head to the side, same position saint floyd was in, Hendrix might be still alive and playing guitar today. He choked on his own puke, because he ws on his back, allowing gravity to do what it always does. He was vomiting and nobody realized he needed to be turned over so it could drain out.
Then again, it’s also entirely possible Hendrix would have OD’d again and died anyway, he was doing the “roller coaster” thing a lot of people did. Amphetamines to keep the long hours and demands of touring, barbituates to sleep a little. Then when he got to England, he didn’t realize the barbs he got there were stronger than those he had been getting in the states. Took the same 2 pills, or whatever, but it had a much more pronounced effect. Next thing he knew he was passed out...I think he had been drinking too, not a good combination either, barbituates and alcohol is what killed Hank Williams. And I think Hendrix was getting pharmaceuticals, not street drugs. He was also doing them at separate times, not a “speedball” combination of both at once.
Bottom line though, same situation as saint floyd. but floyd was doing a much more deadly drug, fentanyl, and in this case combined with methamphetamines, called a speedball. (Same thing that killed John Belushi, meth and heroin speedballs) The police had him in that positoion because they recognized drug use, he had also complained about not being able to breathe. They had him face down, head turned, so if he started puking, he wouldn’t choke on it, and waited for the ambulance they had already called.
I can’t breathe -
In saint floyd’s case, this is also a known symptom of fentanyl. The muscles in the chest become stiff and inflexible, making it difficult to breathe, a condition called “wooden chest”. I can’t remember the medical term. This is known to be associated with fentanyl and meth/fentanyl speedballs. So when he complained he couldn’t breathe, it was a symptom of fentanyl overdose. I don’t know if the police involved were aware of this though. As far as I know, it has never been stated in any of the articles I’ve read.
The autopsy report also did not state asphyxiation as cause of death, the listed cause was heart attack.
