Of course everyone said it was Chauvin, the police officer who had his knee on Floyd's neck, who caused his death. The independent autopsy stated that the results were consistent with compressed lungs but that no evidence was found that the officers in fact compressed his lungs.
You know what I finding puzzling? When you have to use your firearm in self-defense you are required to render aid to the person you just shot, even if the aid only consists of calling the EMT so that they can tend to the injured party.Of course, what they should have done -- and what most cops would likely do -- was to call for medical assistance for Floyd. But the rabid cop had clearly taken personally Floyd's resistance and wanted to teach him a lesson. Which is not his job.Had the cop not kneeled on his neck over a lousy possible couterfeit bill, a laughable offense, he'd still be alive. This could have all been avoided by just a simple cuff and booking. Yet I wonder if this cop had other motives?
