  1. Lololololololol…way to chop the video up to fit the narrative he wasn’t pulled out the cruiser he kicked his way out and asked to be laid on the floor by he was “Claustrophobic” you know after getting out of a vehicle…They also edited out him screaming I can’t breathe while they weren’t touching him…moral of the story kids Don’t Do Fentanyl!!!!!!

  2. Its all because of money!!!! Why does money exist you should buy stuff with manners not money if you are a good peraon you get the stuff

  3. If your seeing this, don't believe that the officer killed George!
    George actually Overdosed on Fentanyl, George even said he was having troubles breathing in his car! They cut out the parts where he said that! Don't let them manipulate you!

  4. This is really shady broadcasting. Where’s the part he said he couldn’t breathe when sitting alone in the car and climbed out himself, after resisting the officers fighting to get out of the car. Which shows he couldn’t breathe before they touched him.

    Where’s the facts? The toxicology reports….fentanyl in his system and a heart condition. REPORT TRUTH. Let people decide how they feel smh. Shameful.

  5. I just want to take a moment for George Floyd and I just want say that even tho I'm mexican I wish that all Hispanic African Americans can all stand to fight against hatred and to fight to protect others family members friends all the loved ones

  6. why do you even pull a gun? first, you check him if his unarmed then there you go don't point a gun if they are not armed

  7. at the moment that park police arrived police took responsibility for the ongoing situation and the person beeing arrested. ( mr Floyd was totally not aggressive !!! )
    Why? and what's the reason for that they decided to go and sit on (mr Floyd) respiratory system? The only answer to this is: to Kill !!! Mr Floyd. Why ? Who gave them license to kill?
    Is it somewhere written in their little park police textbook ? TRY TO BLOCK the RESPIRATORY WAYS AS MUCH AS U CAN BEFORE MEDICS ARRIVE. BY Doing THIS YOU GIVE NO CHANCE to SURVIVE.
    CHAPTER 2 ELIMINATION OF PEOPLE THE POLICE IS BEEING CALLED ON IS THE BEST WAY TO DECREASE THE NUMBERS OF POLICE EMERGENCY CALLS ( SIMPLY LESS CALLS LESS WORK).

  8. The attorney for George Floyd's family, Benjamin Crump, said an independent autopsy "determined that asphyxiation from sustained pressure was the cause" of Mr Floyd's death.

    The autopsy performed by Dr Michael Baden and Dr Allecia Wilson said "neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain" according to Mr Crump's statement.

    Furthermore, the doctors found the "weight on the back, handcuffs and positioning were contributory factors because they impaired the ability of Mr. Floyd’s diaphragm to function."

    An official autopsy released last week indicated that the combined effects of being restrained, potential intoxicants in Mr Floyd’s system and his underlying health issues, including heart disease, probably contributed to his death.

    Auf den Videos ist zu sehen, wie Floyd bei der Festnahme verwirrt reagierte, von Platzangst sprach und sich nicht in ein Polizeiauto setzen ließ. Die Polizisten pressten ihn schließlich auf die Straße. Chauvin behauptete laut Gerichtsunterlagen, Floyd sei an einer Überdosis Fentanyl gestorben. Zudem warf er zwei seiner Ex-Kollegen vor, Floyds Zustand nicht richtig eingeschätzt zu haben. Die Staatsanwaltschaft bezeichnete die Theorie einer Überdosis als "lächerlich" und forderte, alle vier Beschuldigten gemeinsam vor Gericht zu stellen, da sie "in enger Abstimmung untereinander" gehandelt hätten.

    Fentanyl wirkt stark schmerzlindernd (analgetisch) und sedierend, daneben auch atemdepressiv, antitussiv, pulsverlangsamend, blutdrucksenkend, verstopfend und euphorisierend.

    https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fentanyl?wprov=sfla1

    Spätestens seit 2006 nimmt der Missbrauch von Fentanyl in den USA zu. In einem Bericht sprach das CDC von 1000 Toten zwischen 2005 und 2007; die meisten Fälle wurden in Chicago, Philadelphia und Detroit registriert. 2014 waren es 4200 Tote. Vorläufige Daten zeigen, dass Fentanyl für einen großen Teil der geschätzt 59.000 bis 65.000 Drogentoten des Jahres 2016 in den USA (siehe Opioid-Epidemie in den USA) ursächlich war. Im Bezirk Montgomery County wurde im Januar und Februar 2017 bei 99 von 100 Drogentoten Fentanyl oder ein Analogon nachgewiesen. Laut New York Times starben allein in Long Island 2016 mindestens 220 Menschen durch den Missbrauch von Fentanyl.

    Ein Grund für die hohen Todesraten bei Fentanylanwendungen ist die extrem hohe Wirksamkeit bzw. geringe therapeutische Breite. 

    Es wurden Vermutungen darüber angestellt, ob ein besonders potentes, in der Humanmedizin nicht zugelassenes Fentanyl-Derivat, das Carfentanyl, in Aerosol-Form bei der Geiselbefreiung im Moskauer Dubrowka-Theater im Oktober 2002 zum Einsatz kam und dabei für 127 Todesfälle durch Atemstillstand mitursächlich war.

    Ein Derivat des Fentanyls wurde von einem israelischen Mossad-Kommando 1997 beim Mordanschlag auf Chalid Maschal in Jordanien eingesetzt. Es wirkte viel stärker als Fentanyl, wurde wie dieses durch die Haut aufgenommen (es wurde am Kopf aufgesprüht) und sollte in wenigen Tagen mit dem Anschein eines natürlichen Todes töten. Die Agenten wurden unmittelbar verhaftet und Israel gab auf diplomatischen Druck daraufhin den Jordaniern die Art des Wirkstoffs bekannt und das wirksame Gegenmittel (Naloxon) mit Anweisungen über die Behandlung.

    Fentanyl wurde am 14. August 2018 erstmals als Bestandteil einer Wirkstoffmischung zur Hinrichtung des Doppelmörders Carey Dean Moore im Staatsgefängnis von Nebraska verwendet.

  10. Martin Luther King Jr. would be disappointed in Civil Rights Activism today.

    If BLM cared about racism, then they would stand for the truth. But no, BLM incited vandalism, division, and violence. BLM only cares about MONEY and POWER.

  11. This video should be titled, "Death of American Journalism."

    Prime example of why Mainstream Media can't be trusted.

  12. This wasn’t a racial crime why can’t people understand that. He not only did drugs but also threatened to shoot a pregnant woman. Then resisted arrest. What happened was an accident, NOT a racial crime.

  13. You know George Floyd was a murder, and he also died from an overdose of drugs not actually from the police officer. Police officers are taught to put their knee on people’s neck.

  14. FOOTAGE HAS BEEN REMOVED SHOWING FLOYD SAY "I CAN'T BREATH" WHILE SITTING UP, WITH NO CAUSE WHATSOEVER BY COPS, CLEARLY IN A PANIC/DRUG INDUCED HYSTERIA.

    Watch the full video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhwxGzYU2ts&has_verified=1&bpctr=1602027976

    0:26 "Just seconds after approaching… (cop) pulls his gun and points it at a noticeably startled and scared Floyd"… Floyd refused to show both hands and could easily be mistaken for concealing or reaching for a gun with his right (unseen) hand. Floyd was driving a car while intoxicated with overdose levels of drugs, which might explain his erratic behaviour that began before the gun was pulled.

    0:58 "There was a brief struggle as the officers pushed the distraught Floyd into the back of a police vehicle." This is an admission that Floyd was resisting arrest, but they try frame it as if the cops are at fault. Notice they say "there was a brief struggle" instead of "Floyd struggled": this disguises the fact that Floyd was illegally resisting arrest. Also the cops are framed as the aggressors who "pushed the distraught Floyd", but it is completely legitimate for police to arrest suspects and if the suspects resist it's their own fault.

    1:05 "Seconds later Floyd is pulled out the other side" The moment they show is Floyd attemptng to kick his way out of the car claiming he is claustrophobic and demanding to be laid on the ground. This is when he says "I can't breathe" repeatedly although no one is obstructing his breathing, indicating some sort of panic/drug-induced shortness of breath. Floyd then proceeds to kick at the officers which is why they end up restraining him.

    Watch the full video and just drink up the fact the editor saw every second of footage and decided to cut all of those critical moments out.

    From the officer point of view: when you have a drug affected individual claiming to be claustrophobic, repeatedly saying "I can't breathe" with no obstruction to breathing, resisting arrest and trying to escape from the vehicle, I think they probably thought he was just doing and saying anything to escape custody. Perhaps a manslaughter or other charge may be appropriate for the failure to render medical aid, but from the evidence available now it looks as if Floyd died from a drug induced hysterical state known as "excited delerium" (one officer actually brings this up as a concern to Chauvin).

    Are second degree murder charges likely to stick? Almost certainly no.

    If the public is never shown the reason why, are riots likely to break out as a result? Almost certainly yes.
