Uh oh Police Chief Says It Appears Chauvin's Knee Was NOT On George Floyd Neck

Recommended Posts

Even if this drugged out thug died of something else he should have listened to the police. But to no one's surprise most black people do not listen to cops.

The members of the MPD have said that the knee on the neck was a part of their training regimen.

If that is the case, shouldn't the people that trained and sanctioned Chauvin to use that hold be held accountable too?

Still, here we are, yet another case that divides this country like you wouldn't believe. 

Ummmm

"A conscious neck restraint by policy mentions light to moderate pressure. When I look at Exhibit 17 and when I look at the facial expression of Mr. Floyd, that does not appear in any way, shape or form that that is light to moderate pressure," he said.

Asked if the restraint Chauvin used on Floyd was a violation of department policy, Arradondo answered, "I absolutely agree that violates our policy."

"It has to be objectively reasonable. We have to take into account the circumstances, information, the threat to the officer, the threat to others, the severity of that. So that is not part of our policy. That is not what we teach and that should be condoned," he added.

No one thinks Floyd deserved to die and everyone thinks that Chauvin made a bad move with the knee maneuver, however, it's clear that his knee was not the cause of death. If I were in Chauvin's shoes I would have called paramedics right away and just handcuffed him face down since he refused to get in the police car because he was tripping balls on the verge of death. The whole incident is unfortunate but it was not a cold blooded murder as the media has portrayed it. Those are the hard facts.

George Floyd would be alive today and robbing houses if he simply cooperated with the cops.

Surely Floyd didn’t deserve to die, but, on the other hand, to celebrate this thug is insane.

He would also be alive today if some racist cop with a history of violence hadn't pressed his knee into the guy's neck for 10 minutes.

Oh, my apologies. That doesn't fit your agenda

I have never defended George Floyd. I'm only talking about how he died and that's it.

I said this from the start...Chauvin was simply a shitty cop. His numerous incidents during his career affirm this.

But to make it racist is wrong, and to ignore that this piece of trash was resisting arrest and saying he couldn't breathe when in the car and that he had 3x the amount of lethal amount of drugs in his system is ridiculous. We now also have him saying he ate too many drugs, and a picture of what appears to be pills in his mouth during this arrest. Seems like reasonable doubt to me.

He'll be found guilty on a lesser degree charge, but he's not gonna be found guilty on 2nd degree murder and cities are gonna burn once again for really no good reason. 

This earth is better without scum humans...I'll leave it at that

I’ve been on Floyd’s sign the entire time, but if the autopsy came back as death by OD then this guy should not do time for murder. If they took the treating ER doctors word for it then there would be no reason to do an autopsy.

Yes, but he’s not wrong about him being alive if not for him resisting.

also, this case is about an agenda. The agenda? Racist Cops are killing black men at alarming rates. Which, of course, is bullshit. 
 

I’m all for the police improving training and vetting candidates for the force better to eliminate possible racism.

but make no mistake about it, cops in big cities put up with a lot of shit from scumbags. Until you take human emotion out of the equation, there’s always going to be the possibility of things turning bad. It’s just the odds.

Expert Says George Floyd Died From A Lack Of Oxygen, Not Fentanyl

Dr. Martin Tobin, a pulmonary specialist who works in critical care, testified Thursday that George Floyd died from a lack of oxygen, bolstering the prosecution's argument that former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin caused Floyd's death last May.

As an expert witness for the prosecution, Tobin said the state asked him to review documents and videos depicting the circumstances of Floyd's death. Tobin watched some of those videos hundreds of times, he said.

"Have you formed an opinion to a reasonable degree of medical certainty on the cause of Mr. Floyd's death?" prosecutor Jerry Blackwell asked.

"Yes, I have," the doctor replied. "Mr. Floyd died from a low level of oxygen, and this caused damage to his brain that we see. And it also caused a PEA [pulseless electrical activity] arrhythmia that caused his heart to stop."

Prosecutors say Chauvin killed Floyd by pressing his knee on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes. But Chauvin's attorney says that Floyd had a history of taking fentanyl and had an underlying heart condition and they may have contributed to his death.

Last year, the Hennepin County medical examiner's office ruled Floyd's death a homicide, saying his heart and lungs stopped functioning "while being restrained" by police. But it also noted "other significant conditions," including fentanyl intoxication and recent methamphetamine use as well as heart disease.

Four factors led to Floyd's low oxygen level, Tobin said:

  • his prone position on the street;
  • the handcuffs that pulled his arms back;
  • a knee on his neck;
  • a knee on his back and down his side.

"All of these four forces are ultimately going to result in the low tidal volume, which gives you the shallow breaths" that can't effectively bring oxygen into the lungs, Tobin said.

Tobin says that using his clinical skills, he was able to calculate Floyd's respiratory rate at 22, noting that in a roughly 19-second span of a police video, Floyd is seen breathing between seven and eight times as he lies on the street.

"It's extremely significant," the doctor said, "because one of the things in this case is the question of fentanyl." If that opiate was affecting Floyd, he said, it would have dropped his respiratory rate to around 10 breaths.

Asked by the prosecutor if he saw a depressed breathing rate in Floyd, Tobin replied, "No. It's normal."

Prosecutors say Chauvin and two other officers restrained Floyd for nine minutes and 29 seconds before he was moved onto an ambulance gurney. Chauvin kept his left knee in the area of Floyd's neck "for the vast majority of the time" as three officers held Floyd down on the asphalt, Tobin said.

His analysis was helped, he said, by an artist's computer rendering of the scene created by all the available video sources. Tobin said he focused on the first five minutes and three seconds of video, because "that is up to the time that we see evidence of brain injury."

Chauvin's right knee seems to have alternated between resting on Floyd's back and on his arm and "rammed into Mr. Floyd's left chest," Tobin said. He said that both placements would have an "extremely similar" effect on someone's ability to breathe in the position Floyd was in.

Tobin told the jury that the officers made it harder for Floyd to breathe when they pushed the handcuffs into Floyd's back and raised his wrists higher as he lay on the street.

"It's like [Floyd's] left side is in a vise. It's totally being pushed in, squeezed in from each side," he said, clasping his hands tightly together to illustrate his point. The effect directly interfered with Floyd's ability to breathe and rendered his left lung almost entirely unable to operate, Tobin said.

Recordings from police body cameras have shown that Floyd told officers, "I can't breathe," nearly 30 times as they restrained him. At one point, Chauvin is heard telling Floyd to stop talking, because "it takes a heck of a lot of oxygen."

In court, Blackwell asked Tobin whether it's true that if someone can talk, they can breathe. Tobin replied that it is true, but he warned it can give people a false sense of security.

"At the moment that you are speaking, you are breathing," he said, "but it doesn't tell you that you're going to be breathing five seconds later."

As Floyd struggled to breathe, Tobin said, he eventually pressed his own forehead, nose and chin into the asphalt, attempting to "crank up" his chest to let air in. But as Floyd turned his head on its side, Tobin said, Chauvin's knee moved further toward the side of Floyd's neck, compressing his hypopharynx. Anyone experiencing that type of compression would find it "enormously more difficult to breathe," Tobin said.

As a courtroom display showed a still image of Chauvin holding his knee on Floyd, Tobin noted that the toe of the officer's boot was entirely off the ground.

"This means that all of his body weight is being directed down at Mr. Floyd's neck," he said.

During his testimony, Tobin led the court through anatomy lessons about how the airway is structured and how the lungs operate. Several times, he instructed jurors to place their hands on their own necks to illustrate the areas he was describing. Judge Peter Cahill instructed the jury that they could follow Tobin's motions but were not required to do so.

Because Floyd continued to speak for the first nearly five minutes of being held down, Tobin said, "We know that his oxygen levels were enough to keep his brain alive" during that time.

But shortly after the five-minute mark, Tobin said, Floyd's leg can be seen moving, seemingly involuntarily.

"That is when he has suffered brain injury," the doctor said. "We can tell from the movement of his leg that the level of oxygen in his brain has caused what we call a myoclonic seizure-type activity."

Clinicians see patients suddenly extend or straighten their legs because of low oxygen levels affecting their brain, Tobin added.

After Floyd's condition reached that point, Tobin said, Chauvin's movement of his leg away from Floyd's neck and airway would not have much of an impact.

Tobin said he's aware that Floyd had preexisting medical conditions. But he concluded, "A healthy person subjected to what Mr. Floyd was subjected to would have died."

Defense "multitude of factors" arguments

Defense attorney Eric Nelson spent all of his cross-examination raising a "multitude of factors" that might push Tobin into conceding that Floyd may have died of other causes having nothing to do with Chauvin's knee:

  • Chauvin's knee wasn't jammed into Floyd's neck the entire time.
  • Even if it had been, the level of pressure he was applying to Floyd's body changed from nanosecond to nanosecond, correct?
  • No one was measuring the units of force of any of the officers on top of Floyd from minute to minute, right?
  • Science is based on things changing rapidly. Biology can change rapidly. 
  • The nuchal ligament — the back part of the neck where Chauvin's knee was shoved — can withstand lots of pressure. 
  • Floyd's autopsy showed no bruising on his neck, either internally or on his skin.
  • Intelligent, college-educated doctors can misdiagnose people suffering from hyperventilation syndrome and sometimes call them hysterical, even ones who say, "I can't breathe."
  • Minneapolis police officers are taught that if you can speak, you can breathe. 

Next, Nelson moved on to Floyd's preexisting health conditions and drug history: Floyd had "some heart disease," high blood pressure and was previously diagnosed with COVID-19.

Floyd was a smoker, the defense attorney said, and smoking has a detrimental impact on some people's ability to breathe. Some fentanyl users develop what's called "wooden chest syndrome," which impedes the ability of the lungs. It's possible, he said, that Floyd ingested fentanyl in the moments before he was dragged and crushed on the ground by Chauvin and two other officers. If he had, he would have experienced a respiratory depression while the officers were on top of him.

The onslaught of hypothetical contributing factors to Floyd's death seemed at times to perplex Tobin, who often refused to answer with yes or no responses. Instead, he provided detailed information about how the body functions and why the theories posited by Nelson didn't quite apply or were inaccurate.

But, where the defense sought to zoom in to find alternative explanations, the prosecution, on redirect examination, asked Tobin to take a broad view.

"Did you see [Chauvin] get off of the back of Mr. Floyd by the nanosecond, by the millisecond, by any seconds in the nine minutes and 29 seconds that you saw him on him?" prosecutor Blackwell asked.

"No, I did not," Tobin responded.

Later Blackwell said, "Now, you were asked quite a few questions about Mr. Floyd's preexisting health conditions."

"Correct," Tobin said.

"And [Nelson] cited a number of those. ... Do any of those conditions have anything to do with the cause of Mr. Floyd's death in your professional opinion whatsoever?"

"None whatsoever," the pulmonologist responded.

Blackwell then tackled any doubts that may have been raised by Nelson about Floyd's use of fentanyl and the role it may have played in his death.

"You are familiar with the way people die from fentanyl?"

"Yes, very," Tobin said.

"Do they or do they not go into a coma before they die from a fentanyl overdose?"

"Yes, they will."

"Was Mr. Floyd ever in a coma?" Blackwell asked.

"No."

"I might have some knowledge that would be helpful to explain how Mr. Floyd died"

Tobin is a professor in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine, and is affiliated with Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital, both in the suburbs of Chicago. He has written a highly regarded textbook on respiration and is a researcher in clinical medicine who has published hundreds of papers.

All of his work, Tobin told the jury, is related to breathing, including apnea. As Blackwell noted the doctor's esteem in the medical community, Tobin said he has given lectures in more than 30 countries and most U.S. states.

Tobin testified as Chauvin's trial enters a new technical phase, with prosecutors expected to call a string of medical experts to testify about how Floyd died in police custody. The former police officer is facing murder and manslaughter charges.

Tobin told the court he isn't being paid to appear in the Minneapolis trial.

"When I was asked to do the case, I thought I might have some knowledge that would be helpful to explain how Mr. Floyd died," Tobin said, "and since I'd never done this type of work in this nature before, I decided I didn't wish to be paid for it."

Dr. Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County medical examiner, is expected to take the stand Friday, as NPR member station Minnesota Public Radio reported.
