I’m going to say it because not enough people know this yet. George Floyd committed suicide.
He was not killed by the police. He died because of his own choices. Had the police simply let him off with a warning and never touched him, he would have been dead within the hour anyway. He killed himself.
Before you go throwing full wine bottles at your computer screen, let me make my case, and let me encourage you to check out everything I am saying to see for yourself. After that, go ahead and throw full wine bottles at your computer screen, but I’m not buying you a new one.
You have seen the video of Derrick Chavez kneeling on the back/neck of George Floyd, and immediately you were told THIS POLICE OFFICER IS MURDERING THAT INNOCENT BLACK MAN IN BROAD DAYLIGHT! I mean, the guy had his KNEE on George’s NECK! And George is wheezing out “I can’t breathe!” until he dies. Right? It seems as cut and dry as a case of murder can get. You don’t need Poirot to show up for this one. Just Google it.
But before you let Google decide for you, consider the facts:
1. Humans Don’t Breathe Through Their NECKS
What I noticed right away (which apparently no one else in the country noticed because they were busy making home made “Black Lives Matter” signs using magic markers and the backs of old cereal boxes) was that the officer was kneeling on George Floyd’s Neck … NOT his THROAT. His NECK.
The neck is muscle and bone. We do not breathe through our neck. Our neck holds up our head. And the body is designed so that, while laying flat on your face on the ground, your throat is not compressed. This could NOT have killed him. It is impossible. Some turtles can breathe through their butts- a fact attested by America’s favorite talking snowman- but no human breathes through muscle and bone. In order to choke someone, you have to apply pressure to the trachea. For the kneel to kill him in that manner, George Floyd would have to have been laying face up. He was lying face down.
2. I Can’t Breathe When You’re Not Touching Me
If you only saw the six minutes that CNN played over and over for the entirety of 2020 while “mostly peaceful protests” burned down each major city in the USA in alphabetical order, you only saw the incident after Floyd was already on the ground, under a police officer, saying over and over that he could not breathe. Did you know that this was almost a half hour into the incident? Did you ever watch the 27 minutes PRIOR to this? I have.
George Floyd did not begin complaining that he was unable to breathe AFTER he was placed on the ground. Go watch the body cams from the incident and you will see that he begins to complain about not being able to breathe when he is sitting, alone, untouched, in the back seat of the police car. The police put him in the car, and he is saying he can’t breathe, and he doesn’t want to be left alone. He is freaking out. They promise him that they’ll roll the windows down a little and turn on the air conditioning to make him comfortable. They are seriously being more patient and accommodating than anyone outside of Chic-Fil-A is ever likely to be. He only wound up on the ground because, when they tried to close the door, he tried to kick them to keep them from shutting the door. I don’t know for sure, but it is entirely plausible that they took him out of the car and put him on the ground because they thought it would help him to calm down.
At this point, George Floyd has resisted arrest, resorted to violence, and lied about a bunch of stuff. He was acting erratically and foaming at the mouth just a little bit, and so it was clear that he was on drugs, but he lied about that too (right before admitting it). The police were each smaller men than Floyd, and so they had concern that, in his agitated state (and on drugs) he could easily turn violent at the drop of a hat. So when he started saying he could not breathe, they had no reason to think it was true. Even if it was true, they had no cause to think it anything more serious than a panic attack. And even if they did think it more serious than a panic attack, they are cops and not doctors. I don’t know if it is reasonable to think they would have known what was about to happen.
Floyd’s own explanation for his panic and agitation was that he was claustrophobic, and being in the back of the police car (roomier than the car they pulled him out of to begin with) was- he seemed to indicate- was freaking him out. AFTER this, he was put, face down, on the ground.
When you learn CPR and the Heimlich, you are told that if a person can say “I’m choking,” they aren’t actually choking. For me, the fact that Floyd said “I can’t breathe” for almost ten minutes brought to mind the line from Romeo and Juliet where in Juliet says to her Nurse, “How art thou out of breath when thou hast breath to say to me that thou art out of breath?” He was saying “I can’t breathe” for eight minutes after he was on the ground. Ask yourself, if you were one of those cops, would you think he was serious? Would you think being kneeled on was killing him? Did I mention the fact that he was foaming at the mouth and admitted to being on drugs?
3. Just a Dab Will Kill You
In the previous year, Floyd had been taken to the ER because he had overdosed on illegal drugs which had the curious side effect of constricting the breathing passages. Had he not gotten medical help, he would have asphyxiated. But in that case, one of his friends took him to the ER and his life was saved. His drug habit however, did not change.
After his death, the autopsy reported “fentanyl intoxication; recent methamphetamine use.”
Ben Westhoff (author of the book “Fentanyl, Inc.”) has said ”Since only 2 milligrams of fentanyl is enough to kill you, just the slightest miscalculation can make people overdose and die.” source
4. This Man Drown on Dry Land
The evidence for what was found in Floyd’s body is VERY hard to find under the media’s constant cries that it was racist murder, and the internet’s insistence that, to even look into this possibility is racist. google it and you will only get back pages of results saying that this was murder and only the law team of Hitler and Satan would dar eto say otherwise. But the truth can be found in a blood test taken BEFORE the first autopsy. READ IT HERE. It says
Dr. Baker, the chief medical examiner, had to concede that at 11 ng/mL, Floyd had “a fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances.” He also conceded that the fentanyl overdose “can cause pulmonary edema,” a frothy fluid build-up in the lungs that was evidenced by the finding at autopsy that Floyd’s lungs weighed two to three times normal weight.
This is consistent with Officer Kueng’s observation at the scene that Floyd was foaming at the mouth and, as found at autopsy, that his lungs were “diffusely congested and edematous.”
In other words, like a drowned man, Floyd’s lungs were filled with fluid. And that was the obvious and inescapable reason why Floyd kept shouting over and over again that he couldn’t breathe even when he was upright and mobile.
The memorandum ends with Dr. Baker’s devastating conclusion that “if Floyd had been found dead in his home (or anywhere else) and there were no other contributing factors he [Dr. Baker] would conclude that it was an overdose death.”From Minnesota v. Derek Chauvin et al: The Prosecution’s Dirty Little Secret
Medical examiner’s memorandum on Floyd’s toxicology report proves cause of death to be drug overdose, not murder.
5. Turtles Can Breathe through their Butts. What can YOU do? (The Answer is DRUGS)
Even though I have seen the entire video from the arrest, I have discovered something in the research for this article which I missed before. The following exchange happened between Floyd, and two of the officers, Lane and Kueng:
Lane to Floyd: What, are you on something right now?
Floyd: No, nothing.
Kueng: Because you are acting a little erratic.
Lane: Let’s go. Let’s go.
Floyd: I’m scared, man.
Lane: Let’s go.
Kueng: You got foam around your mouth, too?
Floyd: Yes, I was just hooping earlier.
What I gathered from this the first time around was this- they ask if he is on drugs, and he says, “No, Nothing.” So right away, had he been honest, they might have known the risks and called for medical help sooner. But I missed that last line. “Yes, I was just hooping earlier.” I had to look this up because I don’t watch enough cop shows to know the lingo. You might need to sit down for this one. Take a deep breath before you read what comes next.
According to Healthline, “Booty bumping, sometimes called boofing, is a way to consume drugs — usually methamphetamine, heroin, or cocaine — by way of your butt. You might also hear it referred to as plugging, hooping, up your bum, or UYB.”
Yes, George Floyd, patron saint of BLM, told the cops that he was NOT on drugs. Except for the drugs he had put up his butt earlier. And according to that article, it’s done with a syringe up the old poop shoot. Dear Lord I had no idea that was a thing and I was happier when I didn’t know. I have all of the questions and I DO NOT WANT ANY OF THEM ANSWERED.
6. George Floyd put drugs up his butt with a needle
I just can’t get past that. People have murals of this man painted on walls in public places. People have compared him to Jesus Christ because they think he’s a martyr. Cities were in flames under the pretense of getting “justice” for a man who died after taking a lethal dose of illegal drugs up his bum with a needle.
I think I need to lie down for a while. I wasn’t prepared for this. I knew he had assaulted and robbed a woman and her daughter with a gang. I knew he had almost overdosed within the previous months to his death. I knew he had lied to the cops and assaulted them before he was put on the ground. I was not prepared for HOOPING. And I may never be able to watch old episodes of Sesame Street ever again.
If you can still find reason to think that he was murdered, please feel free to share your argument with me in the comments. But from where I sit, the police treated him more kindly than he deserved, and even had they simply let him go on his merry way, he would have been dead within the half hour, dead from the drugs he put into his own butthole. You know the phrase “ignorance is bliss”? Every day I find that to be more and more true.
If you still think he was murdered, watch the full cop chest cam and see how he was acting, and how he was treated. See it for yourself, follow the links I provided and see the sources, and don’t let CNN tell you what to think. Also, say no to drugs. And unless absolutely medically necessary after all other options have been considered, say no to putting anything up your butt. Why do I even have to say these things? I’m blaming Tiktok.
