Court Filings Show Medical Examiner Said George Floyd Had 'Fatal Level of Fentanyl Under Normal Circumstances'


It's sad that we can't rely on the radical media at all to give us important information that would allow us to make up our own minds. No, instead they lie by omission, sometimes out of ignorance and sometimes intentionally. Either way, we the people seldom get the whole story unless we choose to look for ourselves or it's reported too late.

Fox 9 - Minneapolis reported on court filings in the case against the four former Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) officers who were involved in the death of George Floyd. The court filing from the Hennepin County Attorney's Office revealed that Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker felt that Floyd had a "fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances."

"This level of fentanyl can cause pulmonary edema," the memorandum read. "Mr. Floyd’s lungs were 2-3x their normal weight at autopsy. That is fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances."

Obviously Floyd wasn't involved in a "normal circumstance," so the stress his body and mind were under during his confrontation with police combined with the combination of drugs he was on could possibly have been what killed the 46-year-old.

In the memorandum, Baker was referred to as "AB," who the memo reported as noting one other interesting point.

"AB 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," the memo ended.

The memorandum was filed in District Court for the State of Minnesota on Tuesday.
