Riots over the death of George Floyd left Minneapolis in ruins.
The city hasn’t even come close to rebuilding after the destruction.
And one shocking revelation about Floyd could cause the city to burn again.
The tragic death of George Floyd has been spun into a narrative that’s almost impossible to dispute.
Floyd has already been deemed a saint after dying in police custody.
Video of a police officer on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes is difficult to stomach, but it appears that there’s more to the story.
The police placed him in the backseat of their car, and he began to freak out about being claustrophobic.
The police said they would roll down the window in order to give him air, but he continued to pitch a fit.
Eventually, Floyd begged to get out of the car and even asked to lie down on the pavement.
Floyd’s behavior suggested that he might have been under the influence, and now leaked medical examiner notes confirm exactly that.
Apparently, Floyd had a “lethal dose” of fentanyl in his system.
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid—50 times more powerful than morphine—and is responsible for thousands overdoses.
In 2018, 31,000 people overdosed on synthetic opioids such as fentanyl.
A memo from Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker showed that he found “no physical evidence suggesting” that Floyd died of asphyxiation.
the memo also said:
“AB (Andrew Baker) said that if Mr. Floyd had been found dead in his home (or anywhere else) and there were no other contributing factors he would conclude that it was an overdose death.”
These new facts around the case suggest that Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison overcharged and painted himself into a corner he cannot win.
Ellison, a far-left political animal, went for second-degree murder, but with these added details, that’s going to be incredibly difficult to prove.
The left’s bloodlust for “justice” could mean they don’t get any.
And since the so-called mainstream media lies so frequently, people will be oblivious to how the involved officers skated.
It will just be confirmation of the leftist narrative that it’s “open season” on black people and evil cops are allowed to operate with impunity.
The others involved were arrested almost immediately, yet Minneapolis and other cities were engulfed by riots.
In one shameful episode, Minnesota governor Tim Walz and Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey sat on their hands and surrendered a police station to the mob.
The mob instantly torched it.
Radical groups like Black Lives Matter have used the death of Floyd to rake in millions of dollars in donations while tearing down communities.
