So far, six jurors chosen for murder trial of Chauvin in George Floyd case

Six jurors have been picked, so far, for the murder trial of ex-cop Derek Chauvin in the George Floyd case. This includes a man who said he has a ’very negative’ impression of Chauvin. Now, the panel has five men and one woman. Earlier, Judge Peter Cahill reinstated the third-degree murder charge against Chauvin, who is already facing a more serious second-degree murder charge in Floyd’s death.

Good, that means the trial is actually being run with some objectivity in mind which is never popular with the emotionally driven and mentally stunted. Trials aren't supposed to drive politics nor be driven by it, they are supposed to be isolated from it or at least strive to be at least. Let's just hope the gubberment is mentally capable of taking responsibility for the jurors and providing them proper protections afterwards like they did, or at least attempted, during high level mafia trials.

Foaming at the mouth drug overdose. "Gray said Floyd was acting erratically and had foam at his mouth. According to the body camera video transcripts, when asked about the foam and whether he was on something, Floyd said he was scared and had been playing basketball." As officers struggled to get Floyd into the squad car, Floyd said: "I can't breathe" and "I want to lay on the ground," the transcripts say. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/transcripts-show-officer-told-george-floyd-it-takes-a-lot-of-oxygen-to-talk-before-his-death of the most popular categories of drugs are opioids (painkillers) and stimulants, or “uppers.” Common opioids are: heroin OxyContin Vicodin Common stimulants are: Ritalin Adderall methamphetamine If you take too much of one of these drugs, you could overdose, meaning your body can’t detox the drug before deadly symptoms take effect. Common signs of opiate or stimulant overdose are: foaming at the mouth or a foam cone loss of consciousness seizures difficulty or stopped breathing Overdose causes foaming at the mouth because organs like the heart and lungs can’t function properly. Slowed heart or lung movements causes fluids to gather in the lungs, which can mix with carbon dioxide and come out of the mouth like a foam. https://www.healthline.com/health/foaming-at-the-mouth

George Floyd told police he was struggling to breathe before an officer put a knee on his neck https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/george-floyd-told-police-he-was-struggling-breathe-officer-put-n1218556 Several of Floyd’s key heart arteries were severely narrowed — evidence of serious heart disease. Several were 75 percent blocked and one was 90 percent blocked, and that was made worse by where the clogs occurred in terms of crimping the supply of blood to his heart, Nelson said. Blockages of 70 percent or more usually cause chest pain, he added. “That degree of narrowing is sufficient to cause death,” Davis said. Floyd also had an enlarged heart — “48 percent bigger than it ought to be” — likely from his high blood pressure and heart disease, Nelson said. “A heart that’s enlarged like this is more likely to develop an abnormal heart rhythm,” Davis added. The autopsy also found signs of tobacco use. Smoking is a big risk factor for heart disease and many other health problems. The autopsy notes signs of fentanyl, methamphetamine and THC — the ingredient that produces marijuana’s high — in Floyd’s body. Fentanyl is a potent synthetic opioid with heroin-like effects, said Bruce Goldberger, forensic medicine chief at the University of Florida College of Medicine. “People who use it regularly or chronically develop tolerance to it,” and the amount reported in the autopsy could kill someone who has not used the drug in the past, Goldberger said.

Is it even legal for the courts to reinstate the 3rd degree charge?
