An autopsy arranged by the family of George Floyd shows he was suffocated by a US policeman, rather than dying from pre-existing heart problems as claimed by the official ruling, their lawyer announced Monday.“Independent medical examiners who conducted an autopsy of Floyd Sunday determined that asphyxiation from sustained pressure was the cause of death,” Ben Crump said.
Aleccia Wilson, Director at Autopsy and Forensic Sciences at the University of Michigan, said she had examined Floyd’s body.“The evidence is consistent with mechanical asphyxia as the cause of death, and homicide as the manner of death,” she told a news conference.
Floyd died on May 27 after a policeman knelt on the 46-year-old African American’s neck for almost nine minutes. Floyd became unresponsive after almost three minutes.A bystander video of the incident, which came after Floyd was detained on a minor charge of passing a counterfeit $20 bill, sparked a nationwide uproar over police brutality and protests and rioting in more than 140 cities.
The policeman who held his knee to Floyd’s neck, Derek Chauvin, was arrested on Friday and charged with third degree, or unintentional murder, based on an initial official autopsy that said Floyd died not of asphyxia but of “underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease.”
Floyd’s family took issue with that conclusion and have demanded Chauvin be charged with first degree murder, and that three other officers at the scene be arrested and charged as complicit with murder.Wilson and another autopsy expert, Dr Michael Baden, said they disagreed with the official report, only the summary of which has been released as part of the court document for Chauvin’s arrest.
“The autopsy shows that Mr Floyd had no underlying medical problem that caused or contributed to his death.”“He was in good health,” Baden said.“I wish I had the same coronary arteries that Mr Floyd had that we saw at the autopsy,” he added. Read more: Channels Television »
That stupid police suppose to face the law, because he can hear the man saying he can't breathe and yet he refuse to release him a bit. Stopped office I hand over these cops to God........may they never escape judgement..Amen Wickedness of the highest order, may George Floyd soul torment his killer to death.
I can't imagine how he sleeps at night. Without autopsy sef we already know Specifically the police men broke the rules. Brand New 4unit of 3bedroom terrace duplex well furnished and we'll finished in a nice environment. Make your dream home come reality. Everybody sees the video, Floyd was murdered by white supremacists
phillip0be zulu_skywalker The import that almost everyone here missed is that this is a second autopsy, and it’s outcome contradicts with the earlier one carried out by the police county below. First degree murder then 😎 Two actors What a useless cops, I beg it if it were to be Nigerian. The police man don die already with his family cos everyone go make sure say that happened to him
See this guy is very callous minded I saw a video now that shows that he meant to kill the guy intentionally cos when the man wasnt breathing again and talking he still has the knee o n his neck to the extent that someone has to tell him to get up that he needs to be examined. When are you going to update us on the general increase in the rapists case in our own country. Someone said ''We are battling three pandemics at the same time. Rona. Rapists. Racists. The unholy trinity.''
The family lawyer asked for an independent autopsy after the first 1 had revealed there was no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation,in a nutshell George had underlying health conditions including a cornatry artery disease etc. 🤦♂️ Then they will now tell you 3rd Degree Murder. This is Premeditated it should be 1st Degree Murder and Punishable by the Death Chair
Of course nah, after kneeling on his neck for close to 9minutes, what do you expect?, make Floyd jump up dey dance Karaoke...abi...étii funny ju That officer is a beast i swear Black lives are also important like the white What is the result of the autopsy of Tina and Uwa?

People no longer move about with their heart. So sap. now there is a case. We know this already He doesn't deserve to live 😢 There was a day robbers were pursuing me at night, as I was running I met police and I ran back to the robbers for safety 🤧🤧
