George Floyd: Lies, Myths, Fraud


Yes, you’ve heard of George Floyd, the holy, blessed martyr, peace be upon him, newly beatified by the secular, pagan church of Anti-racism.  He rests in his misty perch in atheist heaven on God’s right side, gazing benevolently upon us.  Yes, that George Floyd, the one with the rap sheet down to his ankles.  There were eight jail sentences for a variety of charges including drug possession, theft, criminal trespass, and armed robbery during a home invasion.  That latter charge involved holding a loaded firearm against the belly of a pregnant woman after gaining entry by deceiving her while five compatriots then pillaged her home.  Nice George. 

Floyd met his fate, as the entire world knows, on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis, MN, when police were called because he attempted to pass a counterfeit bill.  The initial disturbing video of the encounter with law enforcement showed officer Derek Chauvin holding his knee against the back of Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.  He was face down on the ground and handcuffed as he called for his “Momma” and said that he could not breathe.  Floyd, indeed, stopped breathing and subsequently died.  We have been living with non-stop mayhem and violence in our cities since.

The final autopsy report issued by the Hennepin130 County Medical Examiner indicated that the cause of death was “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual restraint, and neck compression.”  Under enormous political pressure, it also stated that the manner of death was homicide. 

The media, Democrats, and their leftist militias, Black Lives Matter and Antifa, hold that the Floyd episode is another example of police racism and brutality targeting blacks.  But the contradictions in the story suggest otherwise.  

Two of the four officers who responded are non-white.  The Chief of the Minneapolis Police, Medaria Arradondo, is black.  Minneapolis is a Democrat-run city.  It’s Mayor, Jacob Frey, is a Democrat, as is their city council and state governor, Tim Walz.  Minnesota has voted Democrat in every national election since 1932, including the Reagan landslide of 1984, the only state Reagan lost. Are the critics then stating that the Democrats who run the police, city, and state racists?

Then came suppressed videos and court documents that mysteriously went missing as the outrage festered, and our cities burned.  The body-cam videos of the other three officers present during the arrest, including Tou Thao (Asian), Thomas Lane, and Alexander Kueng (black), showed Floyd to be highly agitated and erratic.  He resisted arrest before the officers placed him on the ground.  He appears to have lost all self-awareness, complains of stomach and neck pain, and foams at the mouth.  The officers struggled to get him in the back of the squad car.  Once there, he complains that he “can’t breathe.”  He then leaves the vehicle on the opposite side.  He asks the cops if he can get on the ground because he is having trouble breathing.  In another video, Floyd is seen in his car before the arrest swallowing a white pill, apparently doing drugs or, perhaps, attempting to conceal evidence by ingesting them.  

None of the four officers in the case used racial slurs or referred to his race.  There was no evidence that race motivated them at all.  Further, why would the officers, particularly Chauvin, deliberately murder Floyd in broad daylight with multiple witnesses, and iPhone and body cam videos?  If they intended to murder Floyd, why did they call the ambulance and help Floyd after the medical team arrived?

Previously suppressed court documents showed that the chief medical examiner, Dr. Andrew Baker, stated that the fentanyl level in Floyd’s blood was “pretty high” and could be “a fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances.”  Dr. Baker also said that “if Mr. Floyd had been found dead in his home… and there were no other contributing factors he would conclude that it was an overdose death.”  Baker, referring to Floyd’s fentanyl level of 11 ng/ml, told investigators that “deaths have been certified with levels of 3.”  In another memorandum filed on May 26, the Attorney’s Office said Baker concluded, “The autopsy showed no physical evidence suggesting that Mr. Floyd died of asphyxiation.”  Floyd also tested positive for COVID on April 3.  

In another document, Baker said, “this is a fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances.” Other forms also noted that Floyd had a “heavy heart” and “at least one artery was 75% blocked.”  The Armed Forces Medical Examiner agreed with Baker’s findings, writing that Floyd’s “death was caused by the police subdual and restraint in the setting of severe hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and methamphetamine and fentanyl intoxication.”  

So, if the knee on neck didn’t kill him, what did?  Why, drugs did.  Floyd overdosed on fentanyl, which stopped his breathing and his heart, known as cardiopulmonary arrest, resulting in death.  Whether the officers encountered him or not.  The stress of the arrest and positioning did not help, but with the amount of fentanyl he ingested, he would have died anyway.  He also had morphine, amphetamine, alcohol, and marijuana in his system.  He died of cardiopulmonary arrest, caused by a fatal fentanyl overdose and underlying cardiac disease.  He sealed his own fate.

Derek Chauvin is accused of 2nd-degree murder and manslaughter, the other three charged as accomplices or aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter.  The first charge carries a sentence of 40 years, the second a sentence of 10 years.  Yet, none of the officers sought to murder Floyd.  There was no intent to do so. You cannot prove murder or manslaughter unless there is intent.   Although it has since been changed, at the time, Minneapolis Policetraining materials show pictures of a suspect, face down, handcuffed, with knee on neck. Chauvin was simply following police protocol.  The autopsy and videos demonstrate it was not racial and not murder.  These officers are innocent.  The police, including Chauvin, will and should be acquitted.  It was a fraud, a manufactured lie.  

Why did authorities not release the evidence earlier to prevent the violence and rioting?  Cops did not kill Floyd.  Why did they let cities burn and not save innocent lives?  Must we imprison innocent men to appease the mob?  Why wasn’t the exculpatory testimony and videos released sooner to stop the riots, looting, destruction, and death?  

Because the Left wanted the lie to go out.  Authorities deliberately chose not to release evidence that could have cleared the police, undermined the narrative, and stopped the mob violence.  Black lives don’t matter to the Left, the media, the Democrats, or their brown-shirt militias.  Blacks are simply pawns in their game.  They use them, reckless charges of police brutality and “systemic racism,” and the consequent civil unrest to agitate their base, get out the vote, and win elections.  It is a naked will to power, nothing more, whatever the costs.  They are ruthless and despicable.  Their misbegotten plans may yet backfire.
