As if the circumstances surrounding George Floyd’s tragic murder weren’t infuriating enough, now the autopsy is trying to blame George Floyd’s death on… George Floyd?
Disgraced former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin (who has now been charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter) performed a modern day lynching of George Floyd. He alone decided that he was the one to be the judge, jury and executioner. His cowardly companion, Tou Thao, stood in the way of bystanders attempting to help Floyd.
For over 8 minutes, Chauvin used his knee to pin Floyd’s kneck to the ground, while he was unarmed and in handcuffs. Floyd can repeatedly be heard saying, “I can’t breathe”, “please”, and “Mama”. George Floyd eventually lost consciousness. For more than 2 minutes and 30 seconds, Chauvin continued to pin an unconscious man to the ground with his knee. This is not protocol, and the fact that this man thought it was ok is absolutely sickening. Prosecutors wrote in a complaint, “Police are trained that this type of restraint with a subject in a prone position is inherently dangerous.”
Tragically, George Floyd was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center and pronounced dead on arrival.
Here’s where it gets even worse. It wasn’t enough to kill an unarmed, handcuffed man in cold blood. Now, George Floyd is being blamed for his own death.
A preliminary autopsy report has shown “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.” It goes on to say, “the combined effects of Mr. Floyd being arrested by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.”
Even with clear video proof of an unconscious man being choked to death, this corrupt autopsy tries to shield the officer from responsibility and blame the victim. Not only do they try to blame underlying health conditions, they strongly imply that George Floyd was on drugs. Wouldn’t an autopsy show conclusively whether or not he had drugs in his system? How can they say “potential intoxicants”? This is as offensive as it is utterly ridiculous. Anyone who has seen the video knows exactly what killed George Floyd, and it wasn’t “intoxicants”.
In a bizarre turn of events, the family of George Floyd have requested an independent autopsy by Michael Baden. Michael Baden was the head of the investigative committee into the JFK assassination, a defense lawyer in the OJ Simpson case, and performed the autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein. You can’t make this stuff up.
We’ll have to wait and see what this autopsy shows, but his family, along with anyone with a shred of common sense left, are saying the finding in the preliminary autopsy report are an ‘illusion’.
