In the show trial of former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin today, his defense attorney played a clip of George Floyd’s admission that he overdosed: “I ate too many drugs.”
But we already knew that, as I reported months ago for The New American. It’s in the autopsy report:
A memorandum from the assistant county attorney for Hennepin County, Minnesota, confirms that George Floyd had taken a fatal dose of fentanyl before the encounter on May 25 with police officer Derek Chauvin, during which Floyd died. …
The memorandum, which cites the county medical examiner’s opinion, validates the official autopsy, which showed high levels of the potentially fatal narcotic in Floyd’s bloodstream, but no life-threatening injuries from the knee restraint with which Chauvin pinned Floyd by the neck.
