  1. I hear Fentanyl causes you to have berating difficulty in high doses.

    • @Brianna also, the cop was at the church, so there is no way he was at the scene.

    • @Ëë Mage wth r u talking about lol

    • @Brianna On day 3 at the trial, video was presented as evidence showing Floyd lucid and fine 2 minutes and 3 seconds before been under his killer knees. Then you and your dilutional comment. Pay attention.

      @Ëë Mage odd because in the full footage right out of the gate George Floyd is acting strange and even stumbling on the way to the car across the street. In fact when they got him in the car he was already talking a mile a minute while saying he couldn’t breath and insisting upon laying down in the back seat while kicking the door not allowing the officers to close the door which is why they had to restrain him. The guy had preexisting conditions, was on fentanyl, and was acting very strange. The officers reacted to the situation just fine. even the ME said that heart disease and fentanyl contributed to the death.

    Common symptoms of fentanyl overdose: respiratory failure, slow breathing, small pupils, unresponsiveness, or blue skin from poor circulation. Kinda like someone kept saying that he couldn’t breathe even before any hands were laid on him.

      @Ty Wedekind the body cam shows his knee on georges neck. Stop lying

      @ModelLights he had 2.5x for the average person, not someone his size

    • Barbarian King | April 9, 2021 at 7:20 PM | Reply

      @BigPoppa Plump he never said i ate too many drugs, he said “I ain’t do nothing wrong” which is clear different. Also, our proof is the countless vids of chauvin’s knee on his neck

    • @Barbarian King amazing come back you think of that all yourself? It’s scary how dumb you and other like yourself who are poorly following this case yet assume to know what you are talking about

    • @Reflection he had a knee on his shoulder and maybe his neck. He was resisting arrest. So…..?

    I saw a video the other day where the judges were out of order, and they’re just lawyers in black robes sitting on a bench. 🥴😄 One of the judges took the public defender back in the hallway and punched him out in the courthouse, literally.

  4. Can we just report the news without having to manipulate the perspective of which people will inherit the truth?

      They are actively trying to undermine American public sentiment on Youtube. Possibly Russians on multiple accounts working from a gov’t troll factory somewhere in Russia. They’ve been bombing videos about Biden, the virus, or race issues with dislikes and top commenting themselves. It’s very clear what their agenda is.

    Is that why George Kirby said he can’t breath 20 minutes before he was subdued?

    • @Los good music Mandrell didn’t a witness testify that Chauvin did Everything by the Book…?
      Could it be that the Cops Playbook Needs to be re-written…?

    • Luntershaptop Fukinov | April 9, 2021 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      @Los good music Mandrell actually thats the problem here. Chauvin being charged with 3rd degree would be a slam dunk onlyEllison is going for 2nd which now makes those FACTS relevant. You’re being duped tans conditioned to think justice isn’t served by a bunch of race baiters who don’t give a lick about this, ONLY the political exploitation and optics the use to pose for power and profit.. ** They can’t even George “Kirby’s name right when trying to exploit him)

      @Lando read my comment to the last person.. applies to your point as well..thx

    • @Luntershaptop Fukinov just imagine if a full grown man wasnt putting his entire body on him he might still be alvie

      @Bob Jones the guy that od but the angry mob is crying murder or whatever.

  8. this is over… Lawyer to the actual Medical Examiner “So in your opinion the heart disease along with the history of hypertension along with the drugs that were in his system played a role in mr floyds death?” ….. Yes

    • Requiem 4aDream | April 9, 2021 at 9:25 PM | Reply

      @anarchy deluxe On cross-examination, he agreed with the defence that there was “no safe” amount of methamphetamine to be in someone’s system, and that an overdose of methamphetamine and fentanyl combined may look different from fentanyl alone.

      Dr Smock also told the court that while viewing the footage, he heard Mr Floyd complain about being unable to breathe before he was restrained on the ground.

    • @Requiem 4aDream
      We know that about 3 minutes before the paramedics arrived, one of the officers checked for a pulse and didn’t find one.

      Again, the concern of death in the prone position is pretty well known to police and officer Lane attempted to convince Chauvin to put Floyd into the side recovery position to prevent him from dying.

    • Requiem 4aDream | April 9, 2021 at 9:38 PM | Reply

      @Austin heart already stopped at that point putting him on his side position would have done nothing at that point. Maybe they could have performed CPR but it was during the pandemic so I can certainly understand why they wouldn’t want to do that.

    • anarchy deluxe | April 9, 2021 at 10:10 PM | Reply

      @Requiem 4aDream thats not at all evidence that the combo of meth an fentanyl killed him. 19 ng/ml is objectively a tiny concentration of meth. And yes, meth is prescribed about 10k times a year

    • Requiem 4aDream | April 9, 2021 at 10:42 PM | Reply

      @anarchy deluxe ” there was “no safe” amount of methamphetamine to be in someone’s system, and that an overdose of methamphetamine and fentanyl combined may look different from fentanyl alone.” There you have it. That and the ME report saying heart disease and the drugs did indeed contribute to death.

  9. To anyone watching this video, go watch the raw unedited version without the media’s spin. They’re misleading you!

    • Al Notterbot | April 9, 2021 at 7:49 PM | Reply

      @Jerry P The witnesses and Police expert witnesses only saw the edited media version too, yeah?

    • @Al Notterbot more experts to come . Be glad it’s not you on trial with your biased opinions your guilty no matter what.

      @RAPLABZ the same way Trump was reelected

    • pamela gilmore | April 9, 2021 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @Requiem 4aDream yes you can because he used excessive force. The man was in handcuffs laying facedown on the ground and in no way was he a threat to the officer. You can’t resist arrest if you’re already in handcuffs you know ARRESTED. There was no need for the officer to kneel on him we saw the man’s body go lifeless under the officer’s knee drugs, health problems or whatever excuse is being used was definitely secondary to his air supply being cut off, it was basically a modified version of the chokehold and people have actually died from chokeholds. Kneeling on a person whether it be shoulder or neck is excessive force especially when the person is in handcuffs. THE OFFICERS DID NOT ACT FINE IF SO THIS MAN WOULD BE ALIVE.

      @pamela gilmore You are making a lot of assumptions that are shown to be false when you view all the video. Floyd was resisting and at one point when they got him in the car floyd laid flat and was kicking the door so they couldn’t close it all while saying he couldn’t breathe and talking a mile a minute. He was under the influence of fentanyl and meth. A forensic scientist testified in the trial of Derek Chauvin Wednesday that she found George Floyd’s blood and pills with Floyd’s DNA in the squad car where Floyd struggled with officers. She also found two pills in the car Floyd was driving when she processed it at the same time. She said she re-processed the squad car at the request of the defense team in January 2021 and collected and tested the pills found in the back seat, confirming they contained Floyd’s saliva. So he was having a nice speed ball. The guy was already suffering from heart disease and the drugs found cause heart arrythmia. Floyd died from cardiac arrest.

      Saying he wasn’t a threat when he was behaving so erratically is patently false. You can absolutely resist arrest when in handcuffs as people do that all the time. He didn’t have any air because he went into cardiac arrest. Don’t do drugs.

      I don’t feel it was excessive as Floyd had been resisting the entire time kicking the door laying out flat in the car and talking a mile a minute. They did act fine as they were dealing with a man on drugs.

    Can anyone tell me why fentanyl is so dangerous? The #1 reason, anybody?

    Hint: Look at the title of the video.

  11. The prosecutor FAILED – own witness says OVERDOSE POSSIBLE – reasonable doubt!
    Aquitaine incoming. Defense hasn’t even started.

    • Not possible. No witness has said nothing about possible overdose. No one, none of the professionals, have indicated such statement. You are just a guy behind a computer unhappy with the results of the case, so you make up any dumb arguments.
      Chauvin will fry!

    • @Leonardo witness was clearly asked if you didn’t watch the video and saw Floyd’s dead body what would be cause of death, she said heart disease, and then asked if she could rule out the heart disease as the main factor, then OVERDOSE.

    Looking forward to the facts and a fair result.

  13. Hmm, I wonder who’s side the media is on.

  14. Lisette Lehner | April 9, 2021 at 5:58 PM | Reply

    Going by MSNBC’s history, I have a feeling they are leaving out a lot of what happened again. At least they are saying that “asphyxiation” as not listed as the CoD on the autopsy.

      No they don’t have to say it, but they didn’t report it. Might want to read the title of this video. Forensic pathologist: “oxygen deprivation’ cause of George Floyds death.

    Blessed be the name of the Lord…

  17. Prosecution may not want the Medical Examiner’s testimony because it isn’t just or worthy to the case. It could be one-sided. This is where all too often cases fail due to certain so called professions that are guided.

  18. George is in a better place now thank God
