At the end of the day, no matter what more comes out, the officer had no right to keep his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine full minutes – let alone even nine seconds.

Derek Chauvin was in the wrong, without question.

Check this out…

NBC News: The Hennepin County Medical Examiner says that the cause of death for George Floyd is: “Cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.”

The M.E. says the injury occurred while being restrained by law enforcement officer(s)

From Fox News:

Attorneys for Floyd’s family released the results of an independent autopsy report Monday afternoon showing that Floyd’s death was caused by asphyxia due to neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain.

The family’s attorney, Ben Crump, announced the autopsy results during an afternoon news conference. Crump said the autopsy found the compression cut off blood to Floyd’s brain, and weight on his back made it hard to breathe.
