    All the rest of the experts explained how all the officers weight on his body hindered his body from breathing

      @N 7 he later recanted that AFTER he saw the video. Dr Tobin has provided evidence as to why the medical examiner would have missed the low oxygen cause of death

    • @SouthSide_ Chicago79 Chris Watts murdered shanann by strangulation NO MARKS ON HER OR HIM

      @N 7 they found his cause of death was homicide, he was murdered. Go back to your confederate flag factory bubba

      So it’s all the officers, not the knee specifically, right?

    • Leeanne Dowdell | April 15, 2021 at 8:52 PM | Reply

      @Антон Бирюков correct. The other officers had the training as well. In the video one was getting off Floyd but got back on him because the others either didn’t move or because they told him to help keep him down.

  2. Mrs White in the library with the dagger…… or 4 policemen in the street with an exhaust pipe ? Tricky one eh ?

  3. Maybe do a live demonstration in the courtroom?

  4. Has the defense trotted out the old “too obvious ” argument yet? “The knee to his neck for over 9 minutes being responsible for Mr Floyds death is just too simplistic, frankly it’s lazy from the prosecution. We need to dig deeper”.

      @Martin Rumbold why are you commenting like this ? no one types in a comment section speaking that way do who are you stereotyping ?

      @Hurricane milli i just did, im a no one? last time i checked, i existed

    • @Hurricane milli
      Sarcasm is quite, quite legal.
      And cops have been killing folks for some time. They have pulled some blatant kills while saying outrageous things. We are merely betting on the existing, or next ones.

      Unlike watching football, it makes you feel dirty. Druggers, dirty cops, dead justice, and weeping, outraged , communities will do that.

    There is a such thing as the death rattle, doc.
    Maybe that’s the sounds that dying man made…*shrugs* I’m no expert though.

    • Those words “I can’t breathe” were not death rattle.

    • CAROL Lecuyer | April 15, 2021 at 11:32 AM | Reply

      My husband died in my arms. There is a specific last breath !
      You know the moment he died.

    • @Pam Kay Right…..but the doctor was saying that if he could talk then he was fine. Clearly, he died so he was not fine. So the dr. points to the last grunts as him being fine. This person is saying that is that very last breath we all take. Sadly, Floyds last breath was a beg

    • He died because his heart stopped, not because he was choked. If he was choked, he wouldn’t have been able to produce any sounds. The “death rattle” is called agonal breathing and there is no evidence of that occurring on video.

      @CAROL Lecuyer I’m very sorry for your loss.

    This will be another O.J. Simpson trial. Right and wrong doesn’t enter into the trial. It’s always a technicality to introduce one juror to have doubts. The threat of a mistrial is held over the judges head and off you go. More criminals are released over technicalities than guilt or innocence and they repeat their crimes.

    Warning: Civil trial against the police vehicle looming. 🤨

  8. ’Dr. Foul-er’ is just there to stir dirt into the facts. Take your money and run, slime ball.

  9. How could I have been so stupid?
    Of course thank you it was the asphalt that didn’t give way to the weight of Chauvins sympathetic knee on George Floyd’s neck and that combined with at times his full weight for 9:29 on a handcuffed human being murdered in front of a child and people telling Chauvin he was killing George Floyd
    Thanks I will try and keep up./s

    • In the UK 12 jurors – the majority verdict can be 11-1 or 10-2. 11 jurors – the majority verdict can only be 10-1. 10 jurors – the majority verdict can only be 9-1. Does is have to be a full 11 or 12 in the U.S?

    • SouthSide_ Chicago79 | April 15, 2021 at 11:40 AM | Reply

      Try to pay attention kiddo. Floyd wasn’t in the same position the whole time and Chauvins knee was not on his neck that entire time either. He also did not have his hands in his pocket, like most low IQ liberals believe, and no bruising on neck, high levels of fentanyl, positive for covid, prior breathing issues, anxiety, etc.
      Look at the charges, read them slowly so you can understand, then look at facts and science. Easily not guilty.

    • @SouthSide_ Chicago79 Let’s just forget about the other two pigs on top of him, right?

    Why is there no body language expert employed by the court? Look at what this “expert” does after saying the knee was “nowhere near his breathing path.” He almost jumps out of his seat, a clear sign he is not comfortable with what he just said.

      @Alessandro M And you don`t see the problem there?

    • Alessandro M | April 15, 2021 at 6:20 PM | Reply

      @Kamil Löschl where

    • Kamil Löschl | April 15, 2021 at 6:42 PM | Reply

      @Alessandro M Exactly there! The jurors have to accept anything that man said as the truth, when he himself does not believe what he says.
      Do you really think that there would be no benefit of having some body language expert in court, or are you willingly playing dumb?

    • Alessandro M | April 15, 2021 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      @Kamil Löschl I am very confused as to why you are so sure this man is lying, he has no reason to. Also, jurors in their MINDS can determine their perceived credibility of each witness and judge accordingly. Read up on the US Court System if you want.

    • Kamil Löschl | April 15, 2021 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      @Alessandro M Yeah, you must be very confused all day… For the fifth time, I do understand how a US court works, but also that it is fundamentally flawed as a system. You are obviously not very bright, so I am gonna let this slide, but maybe you want to answer your own question and read up on body language.

    It doesn’t look good for Chauvin, but then again, it didn’t look good for OJ Simpson either.

  12. 🥺

    The Medical Examiner is an expert at getting cops off the hook

    WOW! Maybe they should ask Eric Gardner, the first ‘I can’t breathe,’ and all of the rest of victims what he thinks because he, too, is dead after saying those infamous words. His own inability to breathe with a choke hold didn’t stop him from being able to speak.

  16. Ella Megalast | April 15, 2021 at 4:19 PM | Reply

    Think about boa constrictor snakes. A person’s airway can be open but the ability to take a good breath requires their diaphragm and rib cage to expand as needed. If they are only able to take shallow breaths due to constriction, they will hyper- ventilate.

    David Fowler is the kind of doctor such defense lawyers keep in their payroll to provide false analysis in their cases.

  18. I fail to see how pinning the man down next to an exhaust pipe which asphixiated him makes Chauvin any less culpable for Floyd’s death than if his knee closed off his airway. 🤷‍♀️

  19. The doctor’s attribution to car exhaust as a causal factor in Floyd’s death is a clear sign that the defense has no good arguments remaining. Even if the exhaust contributed to Floyd’s death, it was Chauvin who exposed Floyd to the exhaust by kneeling on his neck near the exhaust pipe for 9 minutes.

    It’s so predictable the police officer will get acquitted, piles of reasonable doubt in this case. Holes all over the prosecutions evidence
