Court TV: ‘Game-Changing’ Evidence Presented in George Floyd Case

Attorneys for former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin are calling on the charges against him to be dismissed after presenting what one Court TV analyst described as “absolutely shocking” new evidence in the case involving the death of George Floyd.

The evidence involves the very police training manual that officers use, particularly the section about subduing a violent or resisting suspect.

The manual shows officers the proper technique involved in such a scenario – by placing a knee on the suspect’s neck. It includes an image eerily reminiscent of the scene which sparked hundreds of riots since Floyd’s death.

“From coast-to-coast everyone, absolutely outraged, especially by that fact, the knee on the neck,” former attorney and host Vinnie Politan points out. “Well, guess what folks, take a look at what you’re looking at right here. That is from the police training manual.”

An image of the page referencing the use of the knee is then shown on screen, side-by-side with video from the Floyd arrest.

 

Absolutely Shocking

Politan explains that the evidence is part of a motion to dismiss filed by Chauvin’s lawyers.

“This one is absolutely shocking. I mean, this is what the whole story is about,” Politan announces. “This is what outraged millions and millions of people, this is what caused the protests.”

“It was the knee on the neck … and now the defense is saying dismiss the charges because the knee on the neck is right there in the police training manual,” he continued.

One of the more obvious rebuttals to this would be the fact that the officer kept his knee on Floyd’s neck for over 8 minutes. Nowhere in the above referenced manual page does it state the length of time to apply pressure or what to do if the suspect becomes unresponsive.

To that end, attorney Michael Ayala explains something called “excited delirium” by which a suspect on drugs may exhibit “superhuman strength.”

“That picture shows how you are supposed to restrain people when you are afraid for excited delirium,” Ayala states. “This is a game-changer … it’s going to be tough to overcome this training instruction picture that shows exactly how [Chauvin] was doing it by the book.”

 

A Lethal Dose of Fentanyl

That ‘excited delirium’ argument is buoyed by court documents that were filed last week showing the medical examiner’s opinion that Floyd had a potentially fatal level of fentanyl in his system.

A memorandum of a conversation between a court attorney and Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County chief medical examiner, showed the latter allegedly stating that Floyd had, in his system, a “fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances.”

 

Baker said, according to that document, that “if Mr. Floyd had been found dead in his home (or anywhere else) and there were no other contributing factors he would conclude that it was an overdose death.”

A court document argues that there is a white spot on Floyd’s tongue in the body camera video of him resisting arrest that later disappears. Lane’s attorney claims it looks like “2 milligrams of fentanyl, a lethal dose.”

Floyd, prior to him becoming unresponsive, exhibits extremely erratic behavior.

Factors such as the drugs in his system and Chauvin following his training make it clear that this case is a lot more complicated than the media wanted you to believe.

But then, why would they wait for facts to come out when they have a nation to tear apart?
