How did he resist exactly? I saw the entire video from the moment he took him from the car until he died. It was excessive and cost him his life, thats it. He deserves punishment for that. If I kneeled on a guys neck and he died, I would receive punishment for it, so would you. He is no different.I think he is guilty of something for the knee to neck for minutes. That being said, I don't know what.Out of all the cops charged with crimes related to people they interacted with, this one is the one who I think should be guilty of something related to the incident. There was excessive actions taken but Floyd wasn't exactly helping his situation any the moment he resisted. Was that a reason to do what they did for as long as they did, no.
Plenty of people out there that take the approach of “ahh black people are dying, I’m sure they did something!” Easy to envision at least one if not more on the jury, unfortunately.Yeah, all they have is a video of the accused with his knee on a man's neck who is screaming he cannot breath until he dies. Not going to make that flimsy stuff stick.
During cross-examination by lead defense attorney Eric Nelson, Langenfeld acknowledged that a combination of fentanyl and methamphetamine could cause hypoxia. A toxicology screen of Floyd after his death found fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system.
Responding to a question from Nelson, Langenfeld testified that a "primary reason" fentanyl is so dangerous is that it depresses the respiratory system. Answering Nelson, Langenfeld agreed that a person could die from using fentanyl even if they had become accustomed to taking the drug.
You don't believe that the full video, which shows Floyd stating he couldn't breathe before he was on the ground, doesn't help the police's case?I have seen the whole video and it did not help the police's case.
Yep, even a small amount of fentanyl can kill you. The prosecution wants to say the police are fully to blame but the er doctor yesterday put that to rest. Might have even put reasonable doubt in the whole case. If a juror is a real juror, they would only convict if beyond a reasonable doubt. I think it is fair to say that if you are trying to prove actions killed someone that if they did something that could’ve before hand, it is absolutely okay to bring it up. I can’t remember, didn’t he have covid before also? If so, who is to say that didn’t help.The guy had Fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system, his drug use is certainly an issue here.
Don't forget he also had a knee on his neck while he was screaming he couldnt breathe too. You left that part out.This forum is not a court of law.
Pointing out he has a criminal record and that he had enough drugs in his system to kill a horse is not "shaming" him. It is relevant discussion.
