Pulmonologist Captivates Jurors With Demonstrations, Questions During Witness Testimony


  1. I felt freshman on the Most Informative, Complete Expiation of how the body works on my very first day in PreMed.



    2. @Johnny Lawrence Great now we can compare the toxreports. So where’s it ? DMX still alive or not?

  2. ABC: Airway, Breathing, Circulation. Anybody who has taken a CPR class knows that these three things must be maintained to save a life!

    1. @Living Legend2 lmao. Projection is a tool of the right. What did think about Trump taking 100 million dollars from his supporters without them knowing it? I bet you were one of those gullible idolators.

    2. @Fish Co I didn’t know there were arms manufacturers nor pharmaceutical plants in the Black commmunities so where and from whom do Blacks get their guns and drugs ??? George Floyd died of an overdose of American white supremacy.

    3. @Dularr i got your point, but nobody ever listens to that. He might have been i dont disagree with you on that. But watching the entire back and forth today by Dr. 1 2 and 3 all said they saw no signs of an OD, and the levels were constant to a DUI charge not a OD.

    4. @TheLuscious yeah witness testimony isn’t gonna cut it.
      So far prosecution still has the burden of proving malice and cause of death, which there is not medical consensus on cause of death, yet there is an agreed upon deadly dosage of fentanyl in Floyd’s system.
      In the world of “proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt”, there is so much reasonable doubt in this case, that I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets discontinued.

  3. “And certainly worth noting that George Floyd’s family is inside the courtroom, and they just continued to stare straight ahead. So obviously an incredibly emotional moment for them as well”…. “Hey thanks for watching our YouTube channel!”

    1. They have to stare straight ahead, showing no emotion to be able to be at the trial. If they show any hint of emotion, that could I some way sway a jury they would be barred from court.

    2. @S Naz I hope you love your children, however imperfect. With you setting the example, growing up might be difficult.

  4. He captivated them? I’ve been on juries and your job as a juror is literally to listen and watch.

    1. Some people don’t understand jury duty or responsibility .That doc was NOT a pro on pain meds , just how the system works when you are breathing . He mostly likely explained a man dying from OD along with the pressure from the Officer’s knee . I don’t agree with how long Chauvin held him down , but again I wasn’t there , and he had been fighting with them all JUST prior to that whole scene !And to all the phone junkies who video’d it and didn’t render aide , THEY should all be charged as well!

    2. @Sunshine Moonshine and the officers allowed them to help? perhaps you need to get off YT and watch the video for yourself.

    3. This is America, you can’t keep anyone’s attention on any subject without flapping your arms and making it a show. Otherwise, they’ll just wander back to eating the scraps thrown out by the political hack they claim is real news, or liking the latest stupid quote post on Facebook while not even coming close to understanding its original intention or meaning. And before you right-wing/left-wing snowflakes think I am talking about you, I am, both of you at the same time. Cause, SURPRISE, you are exactly the same cookie with a slightly different stupid filling.

  5. „In the domain of political economy the abstract doctrines of science leave me perfectly cold, my only standard of judgment being experience.“—  Otto von Bismarck

    1. You clearly do not understand that quote and just looked up some quotes about science just to try and seem smart while attempting to belittle people who have spent years learning and honing a portion of the culmination of generations of work and progress, aka Science. It baffles my mind how you people can use products of the scientific process to take disingenuous and shoddy shots at a field of study when you have zero clues about it.

    2. @Alex I key words is “of judgement being experience” and tests …are you sure that all those “products of scientific process” lead us or the next generations to progress? I see the hundred thousands “unwanted people” on the planet. Floyd was one of them…

  6. Pulmonologist: “generally, when someone of the defendant’s weight gives you a neck massage with their knee, you may find it hard to breathe.”

    Jurors: “innnnnnnterestinggg.”

    1. @Malik Samari jones why not, i know more about their police training than their police chief that said they aren’t trained to restrain people by putting the knees around the neck, when there were legitimate instructional training WITH PHOTOS of them being told to do it that way.

    2. @Malik Samari jones iI thought I’d talk in lower iq so you could understand me a little bit easier. Did it work?

  7. “Lack of oxygen, not drugs, killed George Floyd”
    “Lack of intact head, not car crash, killed Jane Mansfield.”

  8. A man is dead? I don’t get it. Everything deserves to live. No matter his issues.

    1. “Everything”?? I don’t know if I totally agree with that statement. I do agree it’s questionable who has the right to determine who lives or dies though

    1. @Daniel Kolman Wed are supposed to be able to get a non-biased assessment of the proceedings, that’s what media is for…that’s not only not true now, the media will actually edit video and testimonies to meet…their….narrative.

    2. @Jim King lol if you’ve watched any of the unedited court proceedings you’d know the media’s portrayal of events is pretty accurate. Testimony so far has been absolutely brutal for chauvin

    1. @Joey Anderson i hope but keep in mind most the country wasnt gins ablazin last year so i cant say i expect a response all that different

    2. @Dane Patterson lots of black racists will riot as always and hopefully some get put down for good

    1. @James Floyd swallowed pills as the cop was approaching him and said he couldn’t breathe even before being on the floor.

    2. Guess his expertise threw you for a loop…didn’t go along with what you’d hoped it would be ..he’s doing the job he’s been doing for many years..period..and by the way explained everything brilliantly

  9. Given the choice between 27 million or getting their loved one back, I wonder how many people would actually say no to 27 mill?

    1. My father is a POS drug addict that hasn’t seen me in years, just like GF. I’d personally take the money.

    2. I’d want my loved one back….I value human life not money..as easily as money can appear it can easily go as well

    3. C’mon, man. We’re talking about an African American family. If we listen to the colorful music of the African American community, we can deduce that family means far more to these persons of color than material possessions.

  10. The media is doing all they can to prime the public for a very emotional reaction. It’s sad how easy it is for them to do so…
