George Floyd death homicide, official post-mortem declares - BBC News
BBC News
The death of George Floyd, which triggered widespread protests across the US, has been declared a homicide in an official post-mortem examination.
The 46-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest while being restrained by Minneapolis police, the report found.
It listed Mr Floyd's cause of death as "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression".
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump vowed to use the military to end the unrest.
A video showing a white police officer continuing to kneel on Mr Floyd's neck even after he pleaded he could not breathe has reignited deep-seated anger over police killings of black Americans.

    So the cop should of just let him kill a pregnant woman and her unborn baby ? He was a nasty criminal yes the cop went to far and should of just arrested him instead of killing him but he is no saint he as done lots of bad things and has already been in jail once or twice

    Were the other 2 not from minority groups. If so does that not take the racism out of the argument. Also why have you not reported the toxicology report. The man was a gangster that prayed on women. Why dont you tell people about his criminal record

      They conveniently leave that info of the drugs out to make people think he was murdered. He had lethal drugs in his system, in addition to numerous heart conditions as well as extremely narrowed arteries which could all have played a part in his sudden death. His autopsy report makes no mention of cardiopulmonary arrest aside from the title. It isn't mentioned anywhere else aside from there. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

    You are not telling the truth, what sort of man was George floyd? and what was the conclusion of the autopsy? And yes i do believe this should be treated as a homicide. What you are doing by leaving out important information, is contributing to further break down in the trust of the media, and fuelling already very angry people into more civil unrest.

    То есть по вашему, "демократия", это когда черные под прикрытием "протеста" грабят и громят магазины?, попутно избивая хозяев, которые (прям как бесстыжие расисты) пытаются самостоятельно защитить свой бизнес, в то время, пока толерантные полицейские стоят на коленях, а остальные бараны целуют черным ботинки и каются? Да пошли вы нахер с такой демократией...У вас с толерантностью долбанулся уже не только голливуд в кучу с нетфликсом. Она у вас давно уже вышла из берегов, за грань адекватности и здравого смысла. Аааа..подождите, я понял! они грабят магазины в память об умершем и в знак солидарности с ним, ведь он тоже судим за грабеж был. другого объяснения этой вакханалии, я просто не нахожу. Да это не мое дело, но пишу, раз вы сукины дети, тоже постоянно лезете в наши дела и в дела всего другого мира со своей "демократией" ханжески поучая нас "диких варваров" что такое - свобода и независимость

    P.S. their defense will be, "If George Floyd had been an Olympic athlete, well, he would be alive today! So, we can hardly blame these poor officers who were just doing their jobs, sitting around, on George Floyd's neck and body, compressing him to the point he couldn't breathe!" And they will be found innocent, and collect their pensions....

    yeah, he had a bad tooth, surely that must have contributed to his death, I mean, strangulation/cutting off the blood flow to someone's brain as well as compressing them after you choke them out, well uhhhh, there you have it, if you have high blood pressure or possibly a hangnail, well, could kill ya, yep, sure,

    I am crying, my heart is broken, there roils in me a multitude of emotions that is hard to contain. I cannot (and I will not) reconcile Mr Floyd's death with our place, as humans, in history. A global pandemic threatens us, the dominant species, of our very existence and humanity is on the precipice of annihilation. Now Mr Floyd is dead, no reason, a misunderstanding, his killers defy any kind of apology. Is there a hidden, collective mind-set stipulating that every few years a person of colour must die, very publicly - a modern day lynching (and I'm not supposed to cry).

    If the cop was black, hispanic or asian nobody would know who George Floyd was. The media finally found the white cop (apparently) causing the death of a black man and made it a story. By the way, George Floyd was a seasoned criminal with 5 previous convictions including armed robbery of a pregnant women. He had amphetamines, fentanyl and morphine in his blood at the time of his arrest, and died of a heart attack. Believe the media if you want but a bit of critical thinking doesn’t hurt.

    For gods sake WHEN ARE THEY GONNA WAKE UP trump be talking bout how he's gon release the army in the streets to stop the protesters, talking bout how the protesters are "disrupting the peace" why doesn't he actually solve the problem then? it's ayt for him, it's ayt for the police officers who murdered George coz they white and that's facts. Man them officers where enjoying killing him, George was unconscious y'all and that officer still did not take his knee off his neck. He shouldn't even be called an officer he is a disgrace to the badge they all are. History is repeating itself again Emmett Till, George Floyd, who next? Y'all know what pissed me of the most? When the officers told him to get in the car whilst they were pinning him down what do u want the man to do? he was begging u to let him go he told u so many times he can not breathe he started calling for his mom for god's sake so y'all wanna stop the protesters? We'll stop when the racism stops "NO JUSTICE NO PEACE NO RACIST POLICE" "NO JUSTICE NO PEACE NO RACIST POLICE"

    A few police officers behaved badly, so protestors take it out on everyone! ...the violent rioting is no way to confront this problem, those who have used this event as a means to direct their anger over a frustrating lockdown should be ashamed! ...and would the media please STOP emphasising the fact that this man happened to be of African American heritage. If it was any other colour of man, the media would just say 'a man' ! Yes racism exists, but don't take it out on the world!! ... I have never been, or never intend on being a racist, but yet I have 'Black Lives Matter' interrupting my spotify music with ADS reminding me not to be a racist, OH THANK YOU VERY MUCH, but I really don't need to be reminded to treat everyone with the same respect despite the colour of their skin.

    Yes , arrest all the four stupid idiotic police officers and charge criminal convictions against them and then lock them up in the guintanamo bay prison. American cops should be sent to Africa for an intensive in depth training before starting their career in the US. This will stop the inborn racist attitude of cops in America against ethnic minorities and migrants from Africa.

    There's no different between murderer and these polices. Trust me, when I was in the USA, what I was afraid the most were them. They could kill me although I did nothing wrong. I saw a female police harm a white American womam violently in NYC, she pulled her hair to get her out from the car and hit her with it. These polices are insane and love violating, harm the car drivers. But too lazy to manage real criminal in NYC and DC although the tourists were robbed in front of their sight. I was robbed either, but they just have done nothing, but chatting with their friends. 👎
