I think you should do a personal experiment and get someone who you trust and is strong to apply pressure on your neck, maybe even get drunk. The hold absolutely killed him, witness in the video were pleading and saying you have a blood choke on George.Digital Masta wrote: ↑Thu Apr 01, 2021 7:15 pmIt was straightforward from the start, the prosecution has an uphill battle. You may get the manslaughter charges but anything related to murder isn't gonna stick. The man didn't knowingly try to kill this man nor was he knowingly committing a felony when Floyd died (2nd-degree murder) and trying to prove "evincing a depraved mind, without regard for human life"(involved with 3rd-degree murder) is another stretch. He was using a legal hold (at the time) and had no idea that the man had a heart condition and was loaded up on enough drugs to kill a blue whale. Even the autopsy showed that Chauvin's hold didn't cause his death as there was no damage to his neck.
What killed Floyd was his heart condition combined with the drugs, perhaps the hold he was put in may have elevated his blood pressure to the point where he died faster than he would've (assuming he was gonna die later that day from drugs+heart issues) but that's entirely unknown.
From what I seen so far George wasn't erratic enough to the point where he needed to be subdued even more after being handcuffed.
