Chauvin's Fmr. Supervisor: Restraint Of Floyd Violated Policy | The 11th Hour | MSNBC


  1. They should be showing the TRAINING RECORDS on what he was taught. If he violated it, the case must move on. If it were the way was trained, well the city is screwed.

    1. @Von Dred There is no one thinking besides you that this is a matter that needs correcting. You cant honestly think the guy is dumb to the point that he doesnt realize how to properly answer questions. Obviously in an emotional state, going over questions that hes already went over, and it was more of a confirmation rather than an initial inquiry, which is why ‘correct’ was allowed and he wasnt directed to answer with a yes or no. You really think you benefited someone by pointing out that he shouldnt have said correct? Why do you even bring up the downfall of this country and the lack of professionals as if it apllies to this guy or this situation? Youre just another one of those people who sit there waiting for something to correct SMH

    2. @Von Dred and who would have a problem with being against anti-intellectualism? Why would you put down intellectuals for their views and methods? You my friend are just using words and applying your own meaning to them LOL

    3. @A. Munoz yes, thank you. My next comment will be in response to the questioning that has to do with liability and culpability of police when there is the potential for OD and/or other medical issues.

    1. @tom mas Maybe the defense lawyer will ask him that question when the medical examiner testifies. But the defense lawyer seems very competent and wouldn’t go the conspiracy theory route. The judge wouldn’t allow it anyway. Only factual evidence. So that’s a no go.

    2. The autopsy was carried out by Dr. Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, in June of last year. He concluded that Floyd’s death was a homicide. Easily googled. The full autopsy report is available to read online also.

    3. @Nancy Godsey I do not know what you are responding to but these are the FACTS , no emotional ploys : Fentanyl 11 ng/ml When 3 ng/ml causes death plus the other drugs he ingested. *The autopsy showed : No life threatening injures ! That part of the autopsy, which even you can look up. No matter how much trouble anyone wants to cause . * Page 2 III. No life-threatening injuries identified A. No facial, oral mucosal, or conjunctival petechiae B. No injuries of anterior muscles of neck or laryngeal structures C. No scalp soft tissue, skull, or brain injuries D. No chest wall soft tissue injuries, rib fractures (other than a single rib fracture from CPR), vertebral column injuries, or visceral injuries E. Incision and subcutaneous dissection of posterior and lateral neck, shoulders, back, flanks, and buttocks negative for occult trauma.

    1. @Radiant Fierceness child, pregnant all the same thing to me. It was time for George to go this is cause for celebration not depression!! Once you are capable of doing that to a women and children which is more disgusting I wish she was pregnant so the child didn’t have to watch smh I’m getting sick to my stomach even talking about that piece of trash. Have a good one!

    2. @Probably Not Dad it’s exactly what happened. He basically said, yeah, when a person is completely unresponsive, you’re supposed to stop restraining them. Lol that’s not a lie, that’s the protocol. Dont be stupid.

    3. @Jim Schwartz You ARE Sick & Disgusting to suggest celebrating someone’s death. YOU Are what’s WRONG with Humanity.

    1. @SammyAce really? So you’re saying that trump supporters burned down the White House? Because last I remembered the White House is still standing in good shape and only 1 person died so umm where’s the fire?

    2. @WHO WHO WALKWA Facts are that police officers escalate situations with BLM protests that turn into riots. Do you see how they treat MAGA hogs?

    3. @tt k lmao. Right. The people breaking into stores and taking tvs are all victims of police brutality. Every rioter that looted, murdered, or destroyed property are victims. Im sorry but once you become a criminal you lose your right to be a victim.

    4. @tt k your comment has nothing to do with mine. Might want to turn that insult back on yourself. Please grow up.

  2. What’s coming out in trial is proof how utterly corrupt and dishonest the state and MSM have become.

    1. @TokeTooMuch 420
      The supposed toxicology report made public by the MN prosecution revealing the cause of George Floyd’s death was a fentanyl overdose– that was a lie!!! Of the two autopsies done neither report lists George Floyd’s death was due to fentanyl overdose!!!
      The independent autopsy ordered by George Floyd’s family ruled Floyd’s death a homicide. The two doctors who conducted the autopsy concluded that Floyd died of asphyxiation, or suffocation.

      The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office also ruled that George Floyd died in a homicide. But it said the cause of his death was cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law-enforcement subdual restraint, and neck compression,” which occurred while George Floyd was being restrained.”
      Look it up!!!!

    2. @Black Rifles MatterIt was clearly murder so why would you defend him if you’re not a racist? Nice profile name btw. Just say you’re racist and go.

    3. Why do millions of blacks and browns flock to the “racist” USA year after year? Why do black Americans who hate America stay here if another country is better?

  3. I would like to see other arrests from Mr. Chauvin”s body camera and see how he acts on other calls.

    1. @lynne baker I’m an old senior, just learning things never existed. “Speedball,
      Hooping” & now burking!
      So that was intent to do
      GF? ( suffocated for body parts??!!) What else be revealed??!!

    2. @Patrick derp On the flipside of the back are lungs, vulnerable to compression. Compression can cause slow asphyxiation.

    3. @Dawn Baker asphyxiation means you cant talk or say stuff like “momma” (the name of his girlfriend, not his mother)

    4. @lynne baker thank you for the explanation. Mine was factual. And applies, somewhat. Yours was more topical.and that much more pragmatically horrifying.

  4. When you walk outside. Use you three keys. key number one. respect. key number two be kind key number three. show your love. its only us

    1. Key number 6 keep it even sharper some we can stick it into a violent protester of blms face .

    2. @CASPER 12345 let’s see how nice you’re talking about the police when it’s YOUR face their boots are stomping on.

  5. We can agree that George Floyd wasn’t the best citizen or a role model, but he didn’t deserved to die. It’s crazy how your life can be disregarded just cuz of your past actions or the way you look


      (Lt.) Zimmerman added he believed the restraint of Floyd should have stopped once he was handcuffed and prone on the ground.

      He also said that in his more than 30 years with the Minneapolis Police Department he had never been trained to put his knee on someone’s neck who has handcuffed behind their back and lying in the prone position to restrain them.

      ***Like I have been saying… we are NOT trained to do what Chauvin did… PERIOD!!!***

    2. @Alexander Clarke everyone dies when their heart stops beating. Doesn’t mean they die of heart attack.

    3. @Julie Gaffney Hennepin County Medical Examiner, who conducted the autopsy, issued a press release stating the cause of death was “cardiopulmonary arrest”

    1. @Radiant Fierceness Unfortunately people will choose to override knowledge that people have spent years acquiring and applying and instead decide first that their conclusion is correct and decide what’s true based off of what supports there conclusion.

    2. @Radiant Fierceness The estimated lethal dose of fentanyl in humans is 2 mg. The recommended serum concentration for analgesia is 1–2 ng/ml and for anaesthesia it is 10–20 ng/ml. Blood concentrations of approximately 7 ng/ml or greater have been associated with fatalities where poly-substance use was involved.

      METH- 19NG.


      Respiratory failure is particularly likely with speedballs because the
      effects of stimulants wear off far more quickly than the effects of
       For example, fatal slowing of the breathing can occur when the
      stimulating cocaine wears off and the full effects of the heroin are
      felt on their own.


  6. That lawyer missed the question: “So in your professional opinion those officers were kneeling on a dead body?” They need a new Johnny Cocran.

    1. @nom de guerre did u see the video?? We literally watched as the life drained out of the guy. And what’s really in trial here is Chauvin’s indifference to the life of someone in his custody. He did NOTHING to even TRY and help the guy. That was part of the OATH we take!!! Read the penal code for 2nd and 3rd degree murder. SMH

    2. @doclew28 did he call for EMS? Twice? Oh, oh, yes he did.

      Cops are not doctors to make diagnoses in the field.

      I AGREE he shouldn’t have stayed on after Floyd was clearly unconscious, about 2 or 3 some odd minutes too long. But that was correlation not causation. Meanwhile, you witnessed an OD.

    3. @nom de guerre dude I have cited basic facts about human physiology all you have done is make personal incredulity fallacies and made assertions without any substantiating evidence.

      You are either a troll or severely learning disabled

  7. MEDIC—— You thought he was dead; yet the body cameras show how urgency your movements were to provide medical treatment for him.

    1. @tonyetzu I thought it was strange that he didn’t say the pupils were fixed. Dilated pupils aren’t usually good but can be caused by other things than death. He didn’t speak the way the paramedics I know speak. It seemed kind of off.

    2. Lies about the few people that was at the bus stop being a big threat if that was the case why this officer didn’t let up oh he was so distracted to the point he forgotten about his knee on this man Neck he was told by the crowd the man couldn’t breathe mr. Floyd called out many times as well he couldn’t breathe that cop did not pay no attention to that’s even when Mr Floyd stop talkin that cop as well as rest of them should serve a life sentence in prison

    3. *I’m still trying to figure out, why wouldn’t the paramedics not show urgency when they see someone who appears to be unconscious? “Stand Up,” you’re reasoning is skewed.*

    1. @Hans Hulsebos I agree. I think he was just panicking. I don’t know. It doesn’t pass the smell test, though.

    2. @Sara The tape shows he said he couldn’t breathe when they had him restrained, handcuffed, face down with Chauvin applying more & more pressure on his neck and the other officers on his back compressing his lungs!

    3. @Daniel Corona Many white middle class suburban people come into.the inner city to buy drugs but when arrested even if it seems they have taken an overdose are not treated to a squeeze carotid artery and compressed lungs by multiple police! No, they are arrestef and if the drug is causing a problem with breathing they are given medical attention! The problem here is too many of you still don’t see our people as being as HUMAN as you so therefore not worthy of the same treatment… and I’ll bet some of you think you’re bible reading God fearing christians…SMH

    4. @Hans Hulsebos his was an SUV , I’m 5ft.even and drive an SUV because a smaller vehicle makes me feel closed in…

    5. @Catherine Smith it’s surprisingly roomy in the back of a police SUV and I’m 6’4″ 280 pounds

  8. If someone is a problem, simply ty-wrap them at their ankles. They aren’t going anywhere after that.

  9. I remember the LA, California law suit and believe it when I say, there will be another law suit coming against the police. WOW!

  10. The reason most police dept. don’t use this is because the chance of brain damage is high, which leads to lawsuits.

  11. I appreciate Brian Williams’ acknowledgements of evolved awareness concerning that addiction is a disease. Not a crime.

  12. 4:10: I posited the same thing about trump in regard to the Capitol insurrection attempt. trump said he would march with them and then “fled” or flight. That establishes consciousness of guilt and clear premeditation.
