Witnesses became emotional after being shown body-cam footage of George Floyd's death in the trial of Derek Chauvin Wednesday afternoon.
RELATED: alnets.info/work/f8pygp3LmGyF12k/video.html
Firefighter Genevieve Hansen broke down in tears Tuesday as she testified about being prevented from helping George Floyd as police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck.
The 27-year-old, who also trained as an EMT, was on a walk last Memorial Day when she encountered Floyd and Chauvin. She can be heard on video of the arrest begging officers to check Floyd's pulse.
She described feeling "totally distressed" and "helpless" that the police wouldn't let her give medical attention to Floyd.
Almost everyone who has testified in Chauvin's trial became choked up on the witness stand as theydescribed watching Floyd go unconscious and lose his pulse. Many expressed regret that they couldn't help Floyd, a Black man who was pinned beneath Chauvin's knee for more than nine minutes on May 25, 2020.

Stop with the drama folks. The music, the criminal element who are so called witnesses. The fact that he overdosed while resisting arrest and now it comes out his knee wasn't even on Floyd's neck at all but on his shoulder blade. The whole thing was a lie and people are too afraid to say so because of mob mentality. There it is.

Why was the cop holding him down on the neck with his knee? That seems so severe and unnecessary. There's no way George Floyd should have been held down by that cop's skinny knee on his neck. So wrong. He killed the man. It's so obvious. Nobody should die like that. Floyd had no weapon and the cops were in no danger. Get him up and pit him in a police car. What was so hard about that? I feel so bad for George Floyd and his family.

😂😂😂 so many pink ppl in the comments actually believe Chauvin did nothing wrong by kneeling on someone's neck until they stopped breathing. The amount of meth heads I see here is like an episode of Breaking Bad in the comment section

This trial should have 100% been a bench trial.. There isn't a single soul on this planet who doesn't know about the whole George Floyd incident.. These jury members have already made up their minds.. With some jurors looking away & not watching the video is a problem. The video is the most important evidence that's to be analyzed. These jurors cannot render a verdict going strictly off of emotion. By not doing so can legit put an innocent man behind bars for the rest of his life. I hope someone in there picks up on this because this is not doing a jurors duty. Due to this, it should be deemed as a mistrial.. It's already bad enough neither attorneys know how to ask questions. All of their questions are leading & not straight questions. It's almost as if they are reminding their client/witness what to say & dropping clues from their prep meeting before the trial started.

It's completely harmless if the choke is released early, but it can kill if the choke is held tight for 30 seconds or more. ... With enough force, this can damage the trachea enough to cause it to swell up, closing the airway, and potentially causing death

It's widely known that Fentanyl takes roughly 5-10 minutes to be absorbed by the body. It could also take longer depending on individual size, digestive health, etc, but 5-10 minutes is a safe bet. That said- George Floyd swallowed his pills at about 8:10 and was acting wild as heck, full of energy. George Floyd started to slow down and look sleepy at about 8:20. He started calling for his mama, foretelling his death, and saying things like "I can't feel my face", I'm through, I'm through". By about 8:25, George was barely moving. He appeared to have fully passed out from the drug overdoes shortly after. For anyone with an understanding of how opiates work, it's a slowing down process. Your energy drops bit by bit, until eventually you hit your peak and become a lazy slug. In George's case, he took way too much and slowly died. You can see the drugs slowly take effect as time ticks on and very obviously watch his life slip away. The only way he would possibly still be alive is if the cops never showed up and he didn't swallow his whole stash. However they did show up, he panicked, did something stupid, and would have died even if they sat him down on the corner and gave him a can of grape soda while giving him a back rub. Very sad. TLDR: George Floyd ate too much Fentanyl and overdosed to death in about 20 minutes. Watch the video and learn the lesson: Don't do drugs.

This cop knew George Floyd before the stop. This cop deserves second or third degree murder. If this cop gets off on a not guilty charge, I hope they burn that police station down. It's time to set the example. I'm a white male and watching that video was very disturbing. And I've seen combat. That was nothing short of murder. Anybody that says otherwise needs to take a long look in the mirror. I'm not saying the man did not have a criminal past but this was murder and the cop should be brought to Justice. and if he is not brought to Justice by the court he will be by the people.

I know this guy died but he destroyed five lives and cost the state tens of millions in cash and resources. All for his stupid cigarettes and his refusal to take any responsibility and ownership. Instead he made it hell for four officers and the employee who took the note. And affected their lives forever. Destroyed their lives. Yet they are being blamed. I bet he'd admit if he was watching - that he is responsible for all this and the lives destroyed.

Just for you idiots that don't understand out there, Jurors are randomly selected citizens and sent physical mail when they are called upon. In most states, it's a crime to refuse to show up to jury duty and you may be fined or face charges. For something you are legally obligated to do, it's not uncommon to see Jurors refuse to watch graphic videos, even if it's evidence. You didn't sign up to the case in the first place, let alone to see a man die on camera.

imagine that potentially the most powerful pieces of evidence in the whole case, showing floyd tweaked out of his mind, foaming at the mouth, and shrieking that he can't breathe and is going to die long before he ever makes it to the ground but it was just, "too emotionally difficult" for them to be bothered to look despite the fact that the SWORE, multiple times UNDER OATH, that they would do precisely that, as their hands were held through the process and it was made excruciatingly clear to them that their ONE JOB was to observe and make decisions around the evidence and "based" Cahill and Nelson sat there and let it happen because we absolutely infantalize women, minorities, and this whole horrible population in general as far as i'm concerned they need to be dismissed from the jury and thrown in prison for perjury

I just hope people realize regardless of what happens here in this court room that it honestly was never about someone of race. And if they ever read the document this officer had been reprimanded 28 times prior to this incident where he had had many altercations with Latinos and White males. How many know each month reports are sent to the mayors office, and this is done because there’s so many lawsuits filed against the city for situations like this. But for the mayor Keisha bottoms to know that this officer had been reprimanded 28 times. In my opinion she’s just as guilty as the officer involved. But these people turning away and not watching videos that show evidence how can you honestly make a factual judgment. I said from the beginning they would never find a jury that would be fair to Mr. Floyd or the officer. That they would have to literally take monks who never watch the news read articles or anything. But hopefully justice will prevail. But I really do hope people realize that the enemy of the people it’s not citizens it’s actually our government. But they definitely need to include a few people in these charges as I said the mayor and the chief of police all knowing that this officer had been reprimanded so many times aren’t they just as guilty!

If they refuse to look at evidence they'll be charged with perjury. Pretty sure they don't want to look because the leftist narrative crumbles in the face of facts, but that's just me. Anyone that thinks Chauvin is guilty needs have their right to vote revoked. Floyd had enough fentanyl in his system to kill three full sized elephants. He couldn't breathe because his lungs were filling up with fluid, which happened before he was ever on the ground, by the way. If you think he's guilty you are part of the problem. I'm looking forward to the news for the next half a year after Chauvin walks. Should be quite entertaining watching blacks destroy their own cities again because of a felon killing himself.

Ptsd is not a requirement or pennance for serving jury duty. Especially in this case for people of color who live this reality already. They've seen it over and over again in their own lives.
