Inspector General: Chauvin’s detention was “more than Floyd could take”
A coroner who wrote a controversial report on the cause of George Floyd’s death testified on Friday that police detention was “more than Mr. Floyd could have taken,” but he said drugs and the heart. Did not rule out the role of the problem. After a devastating week of evidence that a former officer “absolutely” violated the Protocol, Minneapolis Police Chief said Dr. Andrew Baker, a Hennepin County medical inspector, defended Derek Chauvin. I gave the team a little hope. Baker’s official report states that Floyd’s cause of death was “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement plots, detention, and neck pressure.” He cited hardening and thickening of the arterial wall, heart disease, fentanyl use, and methamphetamine use as “other important conditions.” The report’s omission of references to drug use and heart problems, and oxygen deficiency, last resented Floyd’s family. Pulmonologist: Floyd’s Shobin’s knees “removed lungs.” Floyd’s death, which was similar to “it was also at the heart of Shobin,” was the result of factors unrelated to arrest, such as existing heart problems and drugs, and Shobin was trained as a police officer. Defense that he was only doing, on Friday, Baker described his cause of death as “a flashy medical term for heart and lung arrest.” There is no pulse or breathing. Baker said Floyd was “generally healthy” before May 2020, but refused to rule out Floyd’s heart problems such as high blood pressure and carotid arteries. Larger than normal heart due to high blood pressure — plays a role in death. “He already has a heart that needs more oxygen than a normal heart because of its size and has a limited ability to step up. It supplies more oxygen,” he said. Told. “In my opinion, law enforcement sub-dual, restraint, and neck compressions were far more than Floyd could have taken because of these heart conditions.” He said how much fentanyl was. He said it was higher than the amount found in that fatal overdose. Floyd’s heart increased the work it had to do to keep it oxygenated, but in the end he said it wasn’t the cause of death. The “top line” was that Floyd’s heart and lungs stopped in the “setting” of police activity. “Given his underlying heart disease and toxicological condition, it was the stress of that interaction that turned him over from end to end,” he said. A veteran inspector general who previously worked with Baker at the Hennepin County office testified on Friday that she had agreed to Baker’s official cause of death, but attributed it solely to police activity. Floyd: Police chief Lindsey Thomas said drug levels were “very low,” and his slow death over the minutes showed that it wasn’t a heart attack. “This is not a sudden heart death,” she said. She stated that the mechanism of death was “suffocation or hypoxia.” Floyd’s lungs and respiratory system are four factors: like Chauvin’s left knee on Floyd’s neck, Floyd’s prone position in arrest, Floyd’s back, arms, side Chauvin’s right knee, and Floyd’s vice. A combination of handcuffs and a road that works well. That means, to me, the actions of law enforcement officers have resulted in Mr Floyd’s death, “Thomas said. After watching Floyd’s death video, she was able to pinpoint the moment she saw the “anaerobic brain response.” She said Chauvin had been kneeling on Floyd for a few minutes from that moment, even after another police officer said there was no pulse. “They maintain that position, so at that point his mind is stopped,” she said. Thomas said that “other serious conditions” were usually included only in public health and research death certificates, and none caused Floyd’s death. However, under mutual review, she admitted that if police were removed from the equation, she might have concluded that heart problems or substance use were the cause of death. 45-year-old Shovin Second and third trials-second-class murder and manslaughter after holding a knee around Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes during a counterfeit bill arrest. Three other police officers, Tou Thao, Thomas K. Lane and J. Alexander Kueng will be tried in August. Nelson asked a crowd of suffering bystanders and whether Floyd initially refused to ride a police car that was considered at Chauvin’s level. of power. However, several current and former Minneapolis police officers and forces use experts testify that after Floyd stopped resisting, it was not part of his training and was “totally unnecessary.” .. ??
