Even the St. Floyd skeptics aren’t being skeptical enough:
We need to understand the facts surrounding the death of George Floyd. Many key facts are being ignored:
- Floyd’s blood tests showed a concentration of Fentanyl of about three times the fatal dose.
- Fentanyl is a dangerous opioid 50 times more potent than heroin. It has rapidly become the most common cause of death among drug addicts.
- The knee hold used by the police is not a choke hold, it does not impede breathing. It is a body restraint and is not known to have ever caused fatal injury.
- Floyd already began to complain “I can’t breathe” a few minutes before the neck restraint was applied, while resisting the officers when they tried to get him into the squad car. Fentanyl affects the breathing, causing death by respiratory arrest.
- It was normal procedure to restrain Floyd because he was resisting arrest, probably in conjunction with excited delirium (EXD), an episode of violent agitation brought on by a drug overdose, typically brief and ending in death from cardiopulmonary arrest.
- The official autopsy did indeed give cardiopulmonary arrest as the cause of death, and stated that injuries he sustained during the arrest were not life-threatening.
- Videos of the arrest do not show police beating or striking Floyd, only calmly restraining him
- In one video Floyd is heard shouting and groaning loudly and incoherently while restrained on the ground, which appears to be a sign of the violent, shouting phase of EXD. His ability to resist four officers trying to get him into the squad car is typical of EXD cases. A short spurt of superhuman strength is a classic EXD symptom.
Minneapolis police officers have been charged with Floyd’s murder. Yet all the evidence points to the fact that Floyd had taken a drug overdose so strong that his imminent death could hardly have been prevented. In all likelihood, the police were neither an intentional nor accidental cause of his death. These crucial facts have been completely ignored in the uproar.
Here is my question: what is the basis for assuming that the excessive amount of Fentanyl in George Floyd’s system was self-administered? None of the facts being ignored appear to rule out the possibility that the lethal overdose was administered to him, possibly by one or more of the police officers involved in his arrest.
Considering that Floyd was hanging around after unsuccessfully trying to pass a forged $20 bill, when did he supposedly take the Fentanyl? Not being even remotely familiar with opioids, I have no idea how long it would take for the drug to take effect, but given the size of the fatal dose, it would appear to be possible that it was administered some time after the police arrived on the scene. Perhaps Floyd was a dealer who was trying to hide his wares, or perhaps the drug was surreptitiously injected into him once he was in custody.
The two points to take away from this are: a) we don’t know who was the source of the lethal overdose and b) as usual, the Official Story is false and misleading.
