Medical examiner concludes George Floyd didn't die of asphyxia

 Minneapolis cop who knelt on man's neck charged with murder ... 
In the charges brought against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Friday, a new finding shows the county medical examiner concluded the death of George Floyd was not a result of asphyxia or strangulation.

An autopsy of Floyd was conducted Tuesday following his death on Monday after Chauvin restrained him for nearly nine minutes by pressing his knee on Floyd's neck.

The full report by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office is pending but so far has found "no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation."

Floyd's underlying health conditions included coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease.

The report says the underlying health conditions, combined with Chauvin's restraint and any possible intoxicants in Floyd's system, likely contributed to his death.


  1. Just my two cents worth but...tell me it doesn't add up.

  2. And I wrote this piece 2-1/2 years ago. Throw in an over exagerated virus scare stir with a bit of ANTIFA scum and there you have it.


  3. Rush to judgement + A culture addicted to instant gratification abetted by Liberal politicians = A social time bomb. A time bomb the anti-Trump Deep Staters were just waiting to exploit.
