Bet you're a saint arnt ya?
Chauvin’s left knee is posterior/behind Floyds carotid artery and airway/trachea in this picture (i.e. back of Floyd’s neck). Regardless of the pictures or videos there’s no way to know “precisely” how much pressure/force (if any) Chauvin was putting on Floyd’s neck. Testimony today covered pics/videos like @Black Legend Gauge posted. It’s quite possible that Chauvins weight (right leg) that was holding Floyd’s left arm/tricep down was distributing the majority of Chauvins weight. It’s also possible that Chauvin was distributing his weight rearward away from Floyd and was simply “resting” his left knee on the back of Floyd’s neck without distributing force or pressure to the neck. This is important due to individuals stating that Chauvin had his right leg pressing down on Floyd’s chest-ribs (thoracic cavity)... This testimony coming from individuals from across the street that could not see a clear view of Chauvin or Floyd due to the police car blocking their view. The same individual that testified to seeing urine coming from Floyd from under the police car.......... has now been proven to be AC condensation that was dripping down from the police car into the street forming the stream puddle of “fluid”... that was “mistaken” for urine.....Must have been a lot of struggle if you can keep your hands in your pocket.
At this point in the case what do we know? We know that Floyd by his own admission “ate too many pills”... toxicology reports show Floyd had 3 times the lethal limit of fentanyl in his system.. we now know that Floyd had consumed multiple tablets made of fentanyl and methamphetamine... Numerous tablets were found in the “Mercedes” Floyd was driving (with his drug dealer “passenger” that has chosen to invoke his 5th amendment right) as well as partial tablets that had Floyd’s DNA..... being found in the rear seat/floor of the squad car that Floyd was removed from by LEO.. We know that Floyd has a history... MO... of consuming his “stash” and then claiming he’s claustrophobic when encountered by law enforcement. Chauvins defense attorney Eric Nelson commented in his opening statements that the medical examiner found zero bruising/hematoma on Floyd’s neck superficially or under the skin. Zero signs of trauma or deformities to Floyd’s trachea (windpipe). There were NO signs of petechial hemorrhage.. Just because it “looks” as if an individual is being suffocated (air choke) or a forced tamponade (blood choke) doesn’t make it so! The medical examiners report doesn’t support the bad optics! What’s truly sad is the fact that today’s MSM doesn’t report this case in a manner that shows both sides of the evidence that’s being presented everyday in court. Media continues to gas light those individuals that have already made up their minds over the same picture that @Black Legend Gauge posted. If we don’t allow the courts (prosecution/defense) to do their work.... and the media continues to pump one side of the story into everyone’s living room at night... I believe we’re destine for the same road we went down in Ferguson with Michael Brown... “Hands Up Don’t Shoot”.... The media fed the wrong narrative so cities would burn and they could cover it!
