Paramedic testifies George Floyd was dead when he arrived on scene

Derek Smith, the paramedic who arrived at the scene of George Floyd’s arrest, testified in the murder trial of ex-cop Derek Chauvin that Floyd has no pulse when he checked him on an ambulance. Smith said, ’In lay terms, I thought he was dead.’ Smith also told the court that when he placed pads on Floyd’s body to check his heart, the monitor showed a ’flatline,’ meaning his heart had stopped.

Girlfriend just testified floyd had 2 overdoses a few months before. foaming at the mouth and stomach pain just like the overdose that killed him.. She said the pills, which she believes landed Floyd in the hospital due to an accidental overdose, appeared 'thick' and were not uniform, and that when she took them they did not have the same effect as opioids. 'The pill seemed like it was a really strong stimulant. I couldn't sleep all night. I felt very jittery,' Hall said. Ross also revealed that Floyd had been hospitalized twice in March – on one occasion due to a drug overdose that saw him hospitalized for five days. Clearly trying to draw a parallel between the symptoms of which Floyd complained the day he died and the earlier known overdose, Nelson asked if Ross noticed 'foam coming from his mouth…a dry white substance', when she took Floyd to hospital in March. She said 'yes' and that he had complained of his stomach hurting and was 'doubled-over in pain'. According to Ross, on one occasion when she took pills believed to be bought from Hall she 'felt like she was going to die.'

Really weird he was acting “too crazy” to not use excessive force, but then was experiencing a drug over where he died before medical help got there? The story isn’t adding up for this cop. Remember when that MAGA group tried a treasonous coup for trump and brought a noose for Pence? Get ready for this cop MAGA crowd.

Why? I thought drug involvement was a right wing conspiracy.

So much doubt has been cast on this case now that if there is a conviction it was political coercion. I am absolutely against the actions of that officer but this is a clear cut acquittal with the department and prosecutors sharing blame.
