  1. Even if carbon monoxide is the cause of death, Chauven put him in that position.

    The idea that floyd died from carbon monoxide poisoning is absolutely ludicrous. If the jury acquits on this, there will be hell to pay.

    There’s gonna be whole lot of carbon monoxide when the city gets burned down!


    • Chudley Flusher Are you back to get that verbal diarrhea “flushed” again???

      Nope. I’m just flushing chuds 24/7. Now it’s your turn!!!

    • There’s gonna be a lot of dumb asses seriously injured, or dead from rubber bullets fired through automatic fire from the National Guard that has already been ordered to be on 5 minute ready as the Prosecution continues to defend Chauvin.
      I have already went shopping for the party favors for this event, the idiots who try to riot are gonna be very extremely sorry they didn’t stay home.

      Weird. I guess that Washington DC is the only place that one is able to safely riot without national guard intervention.

    *Someone should tell the prosecution that the defense strategy of carbon monoxide poisoning still implicates Chauvin because he placed Floyd’s head near the tailpipe – making him culpable.

      @J_P_ Jr. so you r trying to say they did right to kill him. So punishment for refusing to get in the car = death ?


    • my thoughts exactly.

    • @Pheno It’s definitely something. Let me just start by saying that I would be intellectually dishonest if I said that this trial and the murder of George Floyd hasn’t invoked some strong emotions in me. I think that most people are troubled by having witnessed his murder on video by someone who is supposed to be a public servant. Most of us are emotional because the outcome of this trial will underscore who we are as a nation. But please understand that my reply to you was not directed at you personally, but was my take on the compliance issue you raised. As I see it we seem to agree on the guilt of Chauvin. Read my comment again and you will see that I’m directing my comment to anyone who happens to be reading it (which is why I specifically stated “…..so you have some claiming that he deserved to be choked to death)”. Peace.

      @J_P_ Jr. I see… so when hot-tempered community college dropouts with seemingly nothing to lose (ie: the police) threaten your freedom to be high (on pills, meth, gasoline, whip it’s, your own smug sense of superiority, whatever) peacefully in public or even your own home… comply with every request or clearly you deserve to die… and if you’re really lucky it’ll be due to routine procedure and or negligence rather than outright malice.

      But when several level-headed high-profile doctors with their careers and the collective lives of an entire nation, literally on the line (ie: the CDC) say we can’t get back to normalcy until enough people take a life-saving drug… 🙄

      Bottom line, we can’t just wait for someone else to sort this out. None of this is going away unless we actively do something… in fact, more than likely many different things about many different things… every day… perhaps for the rest of our lives…. “Easy doesn’t enter into grown-up life.”

    • @Pedro The Mexican I totally agree but until people call wrong/violence when they see it no matter the race of people doing it or getting the wrong violence put upon them we’ll continue to be divided. This was start by the evil tactics of politicians & the system but carried on by us all. You don’t have to like or agree with someone to say something is wrong. It just takes being a human & respecting others the same having empathy.

    • @SMS2884 um yeah! What do u think they are doing to resuscitate u? Pushing air into your lungs
      air =oxygen! Chest compressions? Pumping your blood!

    The exhaust issue can be disputed because his condition level was 98 percent.

  8. Seems nutty that a defense witness can come up with a crazy idea and then the prosecutor cant respond

    • @Progressive Dragon we shall see. Either way, will you accept the verdict?

    • arthur hogan | April 15, 2021 at 9:53 PM | Reply

      Right, but the prosecution did respond; however, it, the carbon monoxide debacle was brought up by Fowler. Though it was in the pathologists findings. Like 1.2 % . As opposed to 98% of oxygen In Floyd’s blood content. Jerry Blackwell had to scramble to straighten it out afterwards. And recall Dr. Tobin for this clarification. Hopefully he succeeded.

    • @R82CLTD Rebellious True. Whatever it is, it’s a bullshit excuse.

      @Jil Pope When will the prosecution talk about Chauvin’s racism?

    • @Ian S If Chauvin does get off, cops all over America should be killed and I expect that to happen

      Enough is enough, America will not carry on doing this to none white people.

    Why did Chauvin stay on Floyd’s neck? He knew he was killing him and it was a deliberate act.

    • “He knew he was killing him and it was a deliberate act.”
      Did Chauvin or his counsel tell you that or are you a mind reader? You lose all credibility when you say things like that. After 3O plus years in court rooms I can say no judge would ever allow such a statement in a trial.
      If you have picked a side before you hear all the evidence and legal arguments then you are not suited to be either a judge or jurist. You should be embarrassed.

    • @greg rupar the knee was decreasing the blood flow to George Floyd’s body, which carries oxygen. The other cops pressed on his back and chest so that he couldn’t take deep breaths.

    • @My name My last name I literally hate comments like these. Why people always want to conflate two issues? The issue at hand is a man who was sworn in to protect and serve did not do that. There should be consequences for that. If you don’t see that you’re either ignorant, trolling, or worse.

    • Did he know he was killing him? He should have done, sure, but did he actually have that level of intelligence and awareness? He knew he was being an arrogant egotistical SOB, doubtless thinking things like “who are these low-lifes telling me how to do my job?” He may have felt GF made the cops all look stupid by somehow managing to get out of the other side of the car, and give 3 of them a hard time even while handcuffed. He may have been thinking “I’ve done things like this over 18 times before now, maybe even worse, never had a problem, and even if the PD don’t have my back the unions will”. He may not have believed it when told things like “not breathing” or “no pulse”. He certainly wouldn’t have wanted to look the idiot he is by having to resuscitate someone just minutes after so many had utterly failed to restrain them. But did he really know, or was he a clueless moron?

    • He was complaining about not being able to breathe before he was on the ground due to the drugs he was on, he died from a overdose,deal with it he was a junkie.

    While the prosecution will not be allowed to enter into the record that Floyd’s carbon monoxide level was low, the defense does not have test results pointing to his CO level being high.

  11. Not only did Chauvin not administer aid, he PREVENTED paramedics from doing so for minutes after they arrived.

    • In modern internal combustion engines the amount of CO from the exhaust is undetectable. I live in a county that used to require emission testing to register a car biannually. The printouts from the emission analyzer always showed a CO level of 0 when I had the testing done, which was many tests in multiple cars over several years.

      @Sarah Holland his bosses are trying to keep their hands and images clean by throwing chauvin under the bus. Barry brodd who has been training officers for 35 years already said that Chauvin didnt need to be fair was reasonable when kneeling on GF. Chauvin didnt kill GF, he died of heart disease and drugs in his system and should have never resisted arrest.

      @bankai1234561 If I become a drug addict criminal and resist arrest, I just might get the floyd special.

    • @Marc Mescher I do understand you, do your checks, it takes a high level of CO concentration in an enclosed enclosed chamber for it to cause death. It will be extremely erroneous for the court or jury to buy the argument of CO as a contributing factor to Floyd’s death. Both Chauvin & Floyd had the same volume of exposure to it.

      that’s exactly what some jurists will be saying to that ridiculous CO argument. the defense is trying to confuse the jury as to the CAUSE of death versus the MANNER of death, but it won’t work.

      if you hold my head under water till i die, my immediate CAUSE of death (WHY i died) would be asphyxia due to drowning, but the MANNER of my death (HOW i died) would be homicide.

      if floyd sucked in CO from the car, which there is zero evidence for anyway, that woukd be a contributing CAUSE of death, but since he was being held there by chauvin & gang, the MANNER of death doesn’t change.

    Assuming he died of carbon monoxide, it was due to him being forcibly held down by the car’s tailpipe. This action by Chauvin and gangs, caused his death.

    • @Ian S The first degree murder part comes with him pulling him out and putting him on the ground in the first place. Supported also by the fact that he still had his knee on his neck for 3 minutes after Floyd was shown to have NO pulse, and not giving him CPR, and then also not letting off the body even when the EMT’s showed up and tried to get him to move. Clear first degree murder.

    • Or it could have been enough drugs to kill a horse, his heart condition, his tumor in the abdomen or the Covid 19…I guess there’s reasonable doubt…

    • @Dirty Pete If someone is drunk and you push them off a bridge and they die..you’re still guilty of murder.

      @Jen Kem oh I don’t necessarily disagree with the judge. This evidence admitted last minute would have without a doubt gave the prosecution an unfair advantage especially considering the lead defense expert was out of the state at the time. The way people are acting like this is a win for the defense is what is weird to me

    • @Jen Kem the State didn’t go for that option. They and the PD very clearly want their pound of flesh out of Chauvin. They’d have loved to get a first-degree murder verdict. If they had any chance of convicting of that charge, it would have been included. The judge reinstated third-degree murder, which indicates he felt that even a second-degree murder charge may not stick. I think that was a wise move, if you look at the definition of “third degree murder” in Minnesota.

  14. 🗣——- Thank you Sister. 🙏🏾

  15. If this killer had testified, he would have gotten spit roasted by the prosecution!

    The only thing Mr Chauvin didn’t do meanwhile he was praying kneeling in the Mr Floyd s neck was ;
    Surprise : A Selfie !

    • there weren’t any capitol insurrectionists there for him to pose with.
      him and the camp austwitz hoody guy should become friends in jail – both think it is ok to kill minorities by holding them in toxic gas while they are in your custody.

    *”Your honor the victim was shot in the head… that’s clearly the cause of death!”*
    “Now hold on just a minute… did the victim take a daily vitamin supplement to fortify his immune system? I submit he did not so therefore we can not determine the exact cause of death…
