FBI Agent Asks Public Not to Rush to Judgment in Condemning Police in Floyd’s Death

Hearing the other side is very often the road to truth.

Still, this is one article I cannot say I wanted to publish. And it is one where I definitely don’t agree with my old friend, J. Gary DiLaura. I cannot imagine any circumstances that justified the kneeing of a man to death, despite his repeated cries for air and relief. It seems like obvious murder to me.

But Gary is a decades-long FBI agent, now retired, who sees the matter from the perspective of law enforcement.

Gary dealt with many hardened criminals in his day, setting a record for most arrests of bank robbers while stationed in New York City.  He worked on mob cases, and terrorism and had a hand in the arrest and capture of Timothy McVeigh.

With that said, and with almost the whole nation condemning the policemen in the Floyd death, I think it is not unreasonable to hear what a veteran law enforcement officer thinks about it. Even if you don’t agree, you might learn something about the perspective of the opposition. This might help us solve the problem that is provoking protests, and riots and, in their wake, self-serving looting.

For my part, I see the police action as a brutal murder. But let us hear DiLaura. We can listen without getting enraged I think, by opposing views and possibly learn from it.


By J. Gary DiLaura, FBI, retired

Writing a comment to my article FBI Agent: On Law Enforcement Use of Chokeholds and George Floyd, one of my sharp readers, and most are, did his own research and look what he found… which was printed by the UK Daily News along with a rap sheet and Court Order…










He plead guilty to entering a woman’s home, pointing a gun at her stomach and searching the home for drugs and money, according to court records.”

Now if a plain old citizen can find and write about Floyd’s lifelong, violent, criminal history how is it that the six digit, salary, fake “loser/newsers” can’t find anything? And when they do, they shit can it?

Before you say anything… does it, by itself, justify, deadly force. I don’t think so but… the fact is this…at this point I/we do not know what the cause of death is, do we? Is it possible that this convicted coke addict, took a “bad” overdose of coke and the resultant overdose caused his heart to stop?

Those of you who don’t know, coke gives the users “imagined strength” and causes aggressive behavior towards innocent victims. Many “Coke induced” supermen have been killed by police and citizen victims because of their uncontrollable, “coke induced”, aggressiveness and strength…think about it.

What I am saying is there needs to be a complete work up…toxicology, full organ exam, hair follicle exam, complete forensic autopsy before the Coroner can declare Cause of Death” and that is “if” he can!

If it wasn’t strangulation …then what?

Most drug users who tried to get clean, like Floyd apparently did, start using again. When they use their old dosage which they are no longer accustomed to, they overdose on their old dose…the result is death when their heart and breathing just stop…without any choke hold!

Before I condemn anyone, I want to know the facts…all the facts!

I do not believe this police officer kept his knee on Floyd’s throat because he wanted to kill him… a choke hold puts a man out in less than 10 seconds! If Floyd’s blood to his brain was cut off for 8 minutes he should have been limp for 7 minutes and 50 seconds!

Don’t jump until you know how big the leap is!

Derek Chauvin in the act of killing George Floyd.

After Gary submitted the above story to me, I wrote to him: … The autopsy showed George Floyd died from being choked to death by a lawless policeman who has been properly charged with murder. 

Medical Examiner releases report on George Floyd death | FOX 9 ...
George Floyd –The independent autopsy says Floyd died of “asphyxiation from sustained pressure” when his neck and back were compressed by Minneapolis police officers during his arrest last week. The pressure cut off blood flow to his brain, that autopsy determined. But the county medical examiner’s office, in its report also released Monday, said that the cause of death is “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.” Cardiopulmonary arrest means Floyd’s heart failed. The medical examiner made no mention of asphyxiation.

Gary responded to me–

I have news for you…investigative reporter… the first autopsy showed no evidence of strangulation, the 2nd by a slightly prejudiced, professional witness, hired by family showed “strangulation”?
Prelim toxy shows several drugs …including the death drug, fentanyl.
As I said, a choke hold takes less than 10 seconds to put him out (5 seconds is the exact number)…are you sure Mr Investigator …that you want to make that claim? My money is on either “inconclusive or drug related”.
Why did he calmly exit his own car, submit to be cuffed, calmly sit on curb, get placed in police car…then get removed from police car (I assume by force), brought to the ground, by three cops, then apparently had to be subdued by three cops? I don’t know either…that’s why we must rely on the facts… wait for the toxicology… you will be surprised, trust me!

Gary also made this additional comment:

Thanks to all of my readers….there are some good, thoughtful comments on my article, showing my readers are loyal Americans, who do have sincere interest in their country and the enforcement of the law, equally, to ALL those who disobey it!

Allow me to help on a few very important facts and lack of facts.

There has not been, that I am aware, any declaration by the Coroner, on the cause of death. There probably won’t be, at least, in my opinion; there should not be until all the forensics, toxicology tests are in and all the facts examined.

A coroner is supposed to take all facts into consideration in determining “cause of death”. For example …he left a suicide note but shot himself in the back twice with a cross bow…? Get the idea?

In any death case, between the police and a civilian, past use, current use, of drugs… certain types of drugs, arrest records, convictions … always have an impact on “what happened”! They all play a part…what if he has a history of assaulting police and escape?

Drugs can cause people who seem normal to do totally irrational, unexplainable things that an arresting officer has to deal with.

It’s always a damned if you do and damned if you don’t for the lawman… until you face what I’m talking about, you really cannot comprehend how dangerous an otherwise normal person can become on some drugs!

A question we need to get answered is how/why he was removed from the police car, put face down and sat upon by three police officers who knew they were being filmed, watched, whatever and maintained their “control”…why?

Don’t tell me they were trying to kill him because I just can’t believe that. Also they worked at the same place …did they know each other? If they did, could that have played a part? But to intentionally kill someone… that takes a lawman I never met… fortunately!

His hair follicles will tell if and what drugs he used for the past year. So let’s wait and see!

How many times did past President Barack Obama declare without ANY facts…”The cops acted foolishly”…or the cops should have known better?

Here’s something most don’t know, in Ferguson, AG Eric Holder sent out his Civil Rights, Attorney “Investigators”, who were cited by the Federal Court judge there, for… get this…perjury, tampering with witnesses, tampering with evidence, lying to the Court.

All relating to trying to create evidence to put the police in jail!

The Justice sent a letter with his charges to DOJ. Holder, guess what, he did …nothing. He also sent the same crew to Texas…same things happened and to New Orleans, same things happened.

The Texas federal court banned Holder’s attorneys from practicing law before some 30 +/- Federal districts after he charged them with contempt of court.

Holder did nothing! So don’t be too quick to convict the police no matter how bad it looks…there are many “Eric Holders” still left in DOJ. I suggested to the President he rid DOJ Civil Rights of those “hold-er overs!. Many are still there!

Law enforcement must take control of the streets and enforce the law… arsonists should be shot… rioters shooting guns, as I saw, should be shot by police snipers… FBI should do riot and terrorism investigations of the interstate travelers… follow the money… who paid for travel, food, transport, supplied rocks, arson tools, everything!?

END of DiLaura’s post


By Frank Parlato

I spoke with an attorney who regularly represents clients who have lost family members to police brutality and he said that it is extremely common for county medical examiners to support the police, even to the point of lying or concocting false autopsies. They may know it is a homicide but they will protect the police and say the cause of death is inconclusive, making it difficult or impossible to prosecute the police.

He thought this is what happened with the county medical examiner in the Floyd autopsy.

The fact that autopsies often show different results in the same death, suggests that autopsies are imprecise and often cannot be relied upon.  They can be adjusted to suit the bias or demands of who is paying for it.

However, I don’t think anything changes the fact that Floyd was murdered by a ruthless policeman and his accomplices and that there was no need to knee him to death.

But I thank Gary DiLaura for giving us a possible view of why some in law enforcement want to give the benefit of the doubt to the police involved in the Floyd death.

Here are some photos from a New York Times video.

You can decide for yourself, after watching it, if Chauvin had to keep his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. And whether it was wrong to charge him with murder.

  • Enjoy watching your CNN and MSNBC, you deserve them and vice versa. LOL

    I watch those channels occasionally for the entertainment value. LOL

    I’m not buying what you’re trying to sell. LOL

  • Now they just shoved a 75 year old man to the ground.

    When you hire people based on low grades and profile them based on control desires and followers, this is what you get.

  • Murder is murder regardless of the colour of the victim or the perpetrator. Chauvin is not charged with killing a Black man – he is charged with killing a man.

    That seems to have escaped the notice of the people here who seem obsessed with the fact that George Floyd was black.

    Whether Chauvin killed him because he was black, is yet to be established. I have no dog in that fight.


    Keith Ellison’s Ex-Girlfriend Posts Medical File Alleging Abuse
    Karen Monahan told a doctor in 2017 she had suffered ‘emotional and physical’ abuse by Dem congressman

    Rep. Keith Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, who accused him last month of abuse during their relationship in 2016, posted to Twitter a medical memo in which she told her doctor that Ellison had abused her emotionally and physically.
    Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee and the first Muslim to serve in Congress, is leaving the Hill at the end of his term and running for Minnesota attorney general this fall.
    Monahan’s son Austin Monahan posted the allegation to Facebook on Aug. 11 claiming Ellison had tried to drag his mother off his bed by her legs and feet, yelling at her to “get the f— out of his house.” He claimed there was video of the incident.

      • “Cause of death: Asphyxiation.”-Paul


        Paul thanks for posting critique of the Frank Report’s most prolific poster Shadowstate.

        The fact of the matter is George Floyd was murdered.

        George Floyd was a drug using ex con. He once put a loaded gun to a woman’s stomach during a home invasion. Floyd was a habitual drug user. Even on the last day of his life when he was murdered he had drugs in his system. Non of those things changes the fact Floyd was murdered. At the time of Floyd’s arrest he was begging the officers to let him breathe.

        What Shadow fails to be cognizant of is the fact that in the United States of America summary execution is illegal.

        People like Shadow do understand that a felony or misdemeanor crime to not translate to a capital punishment ie death penalty case.

        Shadowstate should probably move to Iran.
        If he wants summary executions and capital punishment for misdemeanors.

  • Shadow state, it doesn’t matter what he had in his system. At all. What matters is if excessive force was used.
    Two minutes after no pulse was recorded, the police continued to choke him to make sure his death was complete.

    Do not fall for the character assassination. It’s put out by cops trying to sway your opinion for their disgusting behavior. It’s a red herring. They do this in every case. Every single case.

    The man was not even moving.

  • I might add, whatever crime he committed is irrelevant. He went to jail…He used drugs–so what? Irrelevant.

    Whatever he did is irrelevant to the death sentence he received.

    Apologists of police brutality always play the character assassination card.

    • Some drugs cause a person to act in a very violent manner, one in which police sometimes have to restrain.

      In this case, they obviously restrained Floyd improperly and excessively.

  • “Since his arrest, the former owner of the club, Maya Santamaria, said Chauvin and Floyd both worked there as security guards at various times but that she wasn’t sure if they had known one another. She said Chauvin was unnecessarily aggressive on nights when the club had a black clientele, quelling fights by dousing the crowd with pepper spray and calling in several police squad cars as backup, a tactic she called “overkill.””

  • 1. A special prosecutor needs to be appointed. State prosecutors have made their careers in bed with police;

    2. Hate to say it, but the vast majority of police have big control issues. For some reason, that badge gives them a foundation otherwise lacking;

    3. They are profiled to not ask questions, but to blindly obey the state, no matter how stupid the laws are.

    This is why you have victims like Eric Gardner being choked to death for selling cigarettes, while the makers of oxycontin killed millions but walk

    4. These cops will never escape federal charges or a civil suit;

    5. I am tired of police being used as revenue agents. 90% of their work is protecting us from ourselves by writing tickets to pay their pensions. Meanwhile, they drive their personal vehicles at any speed they want and flash their badge to beat a ticket.

    They pick the wrong people for these jobs, and this is what happens.

    Thank God for phone cameras. This shit has been going on as looooong time.

    • 1. Wrong. The lead prosecutor is Black and a radical Libtard. LOL

      2. Wrong. You don’t know most police. LOL

      3. Wrong. They ask a lot of questions. Their job is to enforce the law. LOL

      4. You may be right, especially the civil part, which has a much lower burden of proof – I guess you have to be right about something. LOL

      5. Poor baby. LOL

      You are the wrong person to pick to write very much that makes sense. LOL

      Cell phones have also confirmed the police have behaved correctly. LOL

  • It’s just been released that George Floyd tested positive for Coronavirus during his autopsy, but was asymptomatic.

    The cop could well be infected.

    • Could be, but I think Floyd was sick long before, so he was probably not able to pass on the beer virus. LOL

    • As opposed to good, ‘ole fashioned killing for protecting your drug trade turf, such as in Chicago, with multiple shooting deaths every weekend. Most of the Whit Supremacist terrorists are arrested before they kill anybody.

  • None of us have seen what was going on inside the car while George Floyd was on a mixture of opiods and meth.
    There was enough of a problem they had to remove him from the car and put him on the ground.
    The officer obviously made an error, as people can be prone to do during extreme adrenaline rushes.

    It was a ripe enough situation for Soros to have pallets of bricks delivered to protest areas all over the country.

    • Why are you people scared of the riots and looting?

      The flu kills way more people every year.

      • I never said I was scared of the riots or looting, and neither are my two best friends, Smith & Wesson. LOL

        How many bullets can the flu kill? LOL

    • George Floyd was not a choir boy.
      George Floyd was a long time cocaine abuser.
      George Floyd broke into a woman’s home and robbed her at gun point.
      George Floyd died while under the influence of the opioid drug Fentanyl.
      Too bad you can’t handle the truth.

      • Shadowstate simmer down, pop a Fentanyl pill and relax.

        Shadow the guy was murdered irrespective of his history.

        The United States of America is not one of those countries that allows summary executions.

        Shadow, you and your chode need to move to Kazakhstan. You’d love it!!!!!! Nobody in Kazakhstan has a life or any happiness.

    • Smtolle,

      First Amendment?!?!?!?

      I don’t agree with everything Mr. DiLaura writes. He loves his country passionately.

      Gary D. like you, me, and all other citizens of the United States has the write to speak freely (The First Amendment).

      The FBI receives tens of thousands of applications a year for a handful of jobs. Gary is intelligent and had to be incredible qualified to get a job with the FBI.

      Gary and all other FBI employees are salaried. FBI agents are not hourly employees. There are uneducated cops at the New York Suffolk County, NY Police Department does not require recruits to have college degree and recruits up until 2018 would make $139,230. A rookie FBI agent makes about $85,000. Joining the FBI is not signing up for gravy train of law enforcement jobs. Governmental SEC employees, who do not risk there lives make more money than FBI agents.

      Long story short Gary joined the FBI for all
      the right reasons. He also sacrificed a lot. Mainly income.

      My point is Gary DiLaura is a patriot. You don’t have to agree with him, but shiting on a man who dedicated his life to service to the United States is wrong.

      Criticism is fine but wishing someone who served his country is wrong.

      On the flip side Gary would probably tell me to “fuck-off” and “I don’t need some candy-ass sticking up for him. I actually believe he would be more bothered by me than you. Either way go fuck yourself Mr. smell.
      I know your reading this comment.

  • Dilaura sounds like a sociopath at least justify the grossest act, sounds like Netanyahu talking about how he had to bomb children for killing potential murderers. So not even eye for an eye, something more small. Rusia and China maybe have huge flaws, that makes them at least the same as the usa, but the Frank report is a blog that bring down a cult that make a net of slaves for politic pourpouse that used mind control tecniques , its sad that you have someone so blind in your ranks talking. Trump is Hitler but with a touch of a Kardashian. Plus she dosnt say anything new, just a moral.rambling that lacks emphaty, consiusness or Any sense . But hey she worked for the FBI, one of the most corrupted agencys ever, since the cía, mossad, the Vatican.etc

    • You sound like a racist who doesn’t realize what was identified will probably come up during the trial. LOL

      It’s hard to prove someone is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, especially against a white guy. LOL

      If you don’t understand the above, you’re just plain stupid. LOL

  • Mr. George Floyd was murdered in the same way a boa constrictor kills its prey — by cutting off blood oxygen flow to his vital organs.

    Officer Chauvin compromised Floyd’s main airway passage from Floyd’s throat to his lungs, true, by kneeling on that artery but every one of the other officers who applied pressure to any part of Floyd’s body — especially his spine — also “asphyxiated” Floyd by additionally compromising Floyd’s blood oxygen supply. Without constant, oxygen rich blood flow, vital organs rapidly deteriorate and die.

    I know this bc my son suffered the same kind of “blood asphyxiation” injury during labor but was resuscitated at birth and lived.

    Strangely, it appears that this could be the way Covid-19 and/or EM radiation also kills — based on evidence of blood clots found in “Covid-19” corpses. Other evidence of “Hypoxic Ischemic” (blood asphyxiation) injury in alleged “Covid-19” victims include discoloration of extremities (blue toes) indicating lack of blood flow and rashes.

    Questions for Mr. DiLaura: Why is AG Barr still in office after nearly 2000 active and retired FBI Agents, not unlike yourself, petitioned for his resignation? (Not that we didn’t love Trump’s “wartime” Bible photo-op stunt —for Barr’s part in it.)

    When is it OK to lie to the FBI during an investigation? …When it’s the President under investigation and you’re “In like Flynn”?

    Finally, is the maneuver used on Mr. Floyd to “subdue” him in any training manuals?

    • Heidi:
      George Floyd was a long time drug abuser.
      The Hennepin County Medical Examiner conducted a toxicology exam which found the opioid
      Fentanyl in George Floyd’s system.
      Heidi, George Floyd played with fire and got burned.

      • Shadow, you need to bone up on the prevalence of these and much worse drugs abused daily in this Country. If that’s an excuse to use deadly force may as well go ahead and nuke US all. (Except me, I never touch the stuff.)

        It’s obvious Floyd was fully cooperative — not resisting at all — and was fully functioning — nowhere close to dying — when the police first arrived and led him from his car — across the street and away from the storefront cameras.

        Floyd must have admitted having some drugs in his system — Chauvin even tells the cell phone camera, “This is why you don’t do drugs.”

        Speculation on why Chauvin said that while killing Floyd might, someday, include the notion that Chauvin knew he and the others had an excuse to risk doing so to begin with.

        Could have been a training exercise — one of those paramilitary ‘riot control’ maneuvers being practiced on a cooperative, live (to a point) manikin. (Yes, I know the riots didn’t start until AFTER the incident but I also know paramilitary preparations were well underway.)

        Definitely wasn’t drugs or Covid, despite the initial report claiming it was a “medical incident.”

  • that guy, the FBI agent, threw out a bunch of bullshit about coke. anyone who has ever done it is very aware it is bull F’ing shit. As for the ones attacking cops on it, my dad was career military then career cop. he had to get a masters degree to be promoted to lieutenant. his masters was on ephedrine, which was what the media labeled as PCP and COKE. Ephedrine will keep a person alive even if they bleed out. it was designed for heart surgeries to keep fat people alive while doing bypass surgery. Ephedrine is now called meth! once i see the lie or witness someone who is uninformed: 1 i cant hear them anymore 2 all credibility is lost…

  • Dilaura is a Trump supporter which is enough for me to know 1 she dosnt have empathy, 2 she has a tyrant perspective 3 dosnt change after a huge amounts of proofs 4 lacks some morals. If she worked for the FBI i have no doubt she at some point saw the fucked up way that this “institution” works and still has some very disapointing views. I am from México and one thing is seeing your paranoia with China or Rusia or Any poor country that has the bad Fortune of having something that your goverment want, the campign of hate and desinformation that the country recive, but another is to defend the undefendable.

  • Let’s test out your facts Gary. I’ll kneel on your throat for 9 minutes while you are sober and we will find out what happens. This is would either support your claim or not. Are you willing to take a knee on the throat for 5 minutes to prove your point?

  • Here in my country I saw an interview with Jovanni Thrunstrom, George Floyd’s former employer, at the Conga Latin Bristol club, in that interview he mentions that Floyd, who until before the pandemic worked as a security guard in his business, was a very calm man and everyone in the club including him loved him very much, he mentions that he always talked about bringing his little daughter to live with him, among other things he mentions that that day Floyd had come to visit him and that’s why he was in that place where He was arrested and handcuffed by the police, he also says that the accusation of trying to change a false $ 20 bill is false since he himself spoke with the owner of the store that is near his club and who called the police and he He said that the black man who tried to change the false ticket was not Floyd and that this man had already been injured when the police arrived, in addition that the police did not even bother to talk to him, they only found Floyd in his car and what of They even warmed up, even after the events, they have not yet interviewed him to give his version of the story. What strikes me most are the words that Jovanni Thunstrom has to say about the police in his city, he says “the police Here he is very arrogant, those policemen did not release him simply because they were being filmed and people told them to release him, they wanted to impose themselves as superiors, only to go against what people told them “in addition he also mentioned that the reason why they took him out of the patrol was that Floyd was nervous because he suffers from claustrophobia and since the police did not tell him why they were arresting, he started to get nervous and he probably had an anxiety attack and he wanted to leave the patrol but he was never violent with the officers, despite being a tall and very strong man, who if he had wanted to hurt the police, several of them would be very hurt.

    • Yes, one wonders how it would be if us white folk faced actual old testament eye for an eye justice. We never do, yet whine and fantasise as if we were, more than that, unleash vengeance commensurate with our craven fantasies, as opposed to reality. We murder and trash black people as if they were nothing. In response, they burn down and loot our property as if it were nothing. I’d rather a cop knelt on my Balenciaga trainers, my Dolce and Gabbana bag, hell, go ahead trash my house for almost nine minutes, just don’t kneel on my neck till I can’t breathe any more. For the love of God, this evil practice must stop.

  • The courts of law will decide the facts of the matter and make a ruling.

    That’s why they exist.

  • Thanks, Frank, for providing your context. Very helpful for connecting the dots into what everyone was saying.
    Nice reporting

  • I grew up in Northern Minnesota before my family moved down to Chicagoland.
    Forty or fifty years ago, the Twin Cities were wonderful.
    Families would go down to Minneapolis and Saint Paul to go shopping, attend concerts or plays, watch ball games or experience the Minnesota State Fair.
    Today, because of Political Correctness, Minnesota is Hell on Earth.

    The “report and videos ” by the NY Times are very telling yet , in my humble opinion, really add mud to the already muddy water on “cause of death”. Assuming Floyd was ,let’s say, not in the best of health, probably due to substance abuse, his “fainting” for an instance BEFORE any “choke” hold was applied, in my opinion, was probably due to an event he had, related to blood flow to his brain. We know he is a substance abuser, we know that the reports to the arriving police was he that was very “drunk”. Drunk? From what… boose or drugs or both? The point is ,that is extremely important and goes to what caused his death. We won’t know until all the facts are in. What did his passenger have to say about what he knew Floyd did to become intoxicated, where were they what drugs,if any or what booze,if any did they consume. Did Floyd pass out BEFORE going to the store? The other thing I believe, although it’s not certain, is the officer with the knee does not appear to be on his carotid, looks to me like he is partly on the jaw bone and backed off to the back of the neck when Floyd said he can’t breath, I think closer examination of everything is needed. What part did the two other officers on his back play in “I can’t breath”?…think about that for a while.

    Here’s the only point I want to make…being a cop is much more difficult and dangerous than being say a “Community Organizer”…we risk life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness… to enforce the laws, to keep you safe and are entitled to be considered “innocent until proven guilty”! Enough said on that issue.

    On the “Non Peaceful Protesting” that we are all seeing…it is NOT a Peaceful Protest by any stretch of the fake news imagination. It is as I said from then beginning…well organized Illegal Acts called Rioting! It’s well organized, criminal, seeded ,funded ,pursued by Hussein Obama, his organizations and a wealthy, dual citizenship, socialist who happens to be a billionaire. Follow the God Damn Money…then lock up the organizers. It is their last ditch chance to win a Presidential Election…without any viable candidates for either President or VP!

    Arrest these so called Democrat leaders and charge them with Criminal Negligence…conspiring to aid Rioting…and let a jury decide if
    Democrat Leaders” , like Cuomo, DiBalsio, the Minneapolis Mayor ,the WDC Mayor are Criminals, Inept or just place born stupid!

    If Cuomo could ban any “public interaction” because of Covid -19…WTF…what about no “protesting”, public interaction due to arson, assaults, murders by Rioters, until we find a “cure” for that! Isolate at home! The Right Side -RED

  • Fentanyl is a opioid.
    Fentanyl is an artificial lab manufactured drug that is like heroin but is 50 times more deadly.

    Many heroin or opiate addicts think they are buying heroin or another opiate but are really buying Fentanyl.
    In 2016 the singer Prince died of a Fentanyl overdose.

    Prince (musician)
    A press release from the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Anoka County on June 2 stated that the star had died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, at the age of 57.
    The fentanyl that led to his overdose was contained in counterfeit pills made to look like a generic version of the painkiller Vicodin.

    Fentanyl is frequently manufactured from precursor chemicals imported from Communist China.
    Every year about to 20,000 to 30,000 Americans die of Fentanyl overdoses.

    Fentanyl, Inc.: How Rogue Chemists Are Creating the Deadliest Wave of the Opioid Epidemic

    A remarkable four-year investigation into the dangerous world of synthetic drugs―from black market drug factories in China to users and dealers on the streets of the U.S. to harm reduction activists in Europe―which reveals for the first time the next wave of the opioid epidemic
    A deeply human story, Fentanyl, Inc. is the first deep-dive investigation of a hazardous and illicit industry that has created a worldwide epidemic, ravaging communities and overwhelming and confounding government agencies that are challenged to combat it. “A whole new crop of chemicals is radically changing the recreational drug landscape,” writes Ben Westhoff. “These are known as Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) and they include replacements for known drugs like heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana. They are synthetic, made in a laboratory, and are much more potent than traditional drugs”―and all-too-often tragically lethal.

    Drugs like fentanyl, K2, and Spice―and those with arcane acronyms like 25i-NBOMe― were all originally conceived in legitimate laboratories for proper scientific and medicinal purposes. Their formulas were then hijacked and manufactured by rogue chemists, largely in China, who change their molecular structures to stay ahead of the law, making the drugs’ effects impossible to predict. Westhoff has infiltrated this shadowy world. He tracks down the little-known scientists who invented these drugs and inadvertently killed thousands, as well as a mysterious drug baron who turned the law upside down in his home country of New Zealand. Westhoff visits the shady factories in China from which these drugs emanate, providing startling and original reporting on how China’s vast chemical industry operates, and how the Chinese government subsidizes it. Poignantly, he chronicles the lives of addicted users and dealers, families of victims, law enforcement officers, and underground drug awareness organizers in the U.S. and Europe. Together they represent the shocking and riveting full anatomy of a calamity we are just beginning to understand. From its depths, as Westhoff relates, are emerging new strategies that may provide essential long-term solutions to the drug crisis that has affected so many.

    • Shadow,

      You are the world’s most verbose writer; I have ever come across.

      You make Tolstoy seem like a concise writer.

  • If we’re going to consider the background of Floyd, then we need to also consider the background of the former officer charged with murder. He reportedly has 18 previous complaints from citizens. What is the nature of those complaints? Should he have been fired years ago?

    I’ve seen the show Cops, a real-life (although the police know they are being filmed, so they are on their best behavior) show that sometimes has unruly detainees who are put in the back of a squad car and try to kick the back windows out. They are always hog-tied, with their feet restrained together and then tied to the handcuffs that are behind their back. Did the police lack this restraining device? If so, was it necessary to grind the knee into the back of the neck, and apparently another officer was pushing his knee into Floyd’s back, and disrupting his breathing? There are two autopsies, and there are some differences between what caused Floyd’s death, but they are not major differences and are preliminary, as the toxicology reports have not been completed. I agree the toxicology reports should be considered, which will take months.

    Why hasn’t the police department said anything about a potential adverse drug reaction? They could have said something to that effect the same day Floyd died and potentially blunted the rioting, including at least seven deaths and billions of dollars of physical damage that resulted and will ruin lives for decades. I smell Dems who wanted to get rid of Trump at all costs, as they have been doing for years.

    • In addition to the above, I’ve seen on the Cops show the police restraining people as they are putting handcuffs on them, and placing their knee near the top of the back, but never on the neck, and never for more than the few seconds it takes to secure the handcuffs behind their back as they lie on their stomach.

      Another aspect that I haven’t seen discussed anywhere is that things need to change on the Blacks’ side as well. They appear to want change from the other side, but how about their own issues? For example, if white, blue-eyed women were causing a lot of crime, I would expect the police to pull them over more frequently, especially if they were in a Black neighborhood. Tim Scott, the U.S. Senator from South Carolina, has said he has been pulled over seven times since he became a Senator for committing the crime of driving while Black. He knows Black males commit a lot of crime and while he doesn’t like being pulled over, he understands a lot of Blacks commit a lot of crimes and the police are simply doing their job. They also create a lot of babies outside of marriage, abort a lot of babies, do drugs, sell drugs, kill others, especially other Blacks, such as in Chicago, etc., so any changes from the other side need to be met with changes on the side of the Blacks or it simply won’t work. It takes two to tango.

      • ‘They also create a lot of babies outside of marriage, abort a lot of babies, do drugs, sell drugs, kill others, especially other Blacks..’

        Could substitute the word ‘black’ for ‘white’ to make this sentence more meaningful and certainly closer to a universal truth.

        Look into the mirror of your mind. Your fears are self-reflexive memes and if you care to admit it, most probably unsubstantiated in your personal experience. We are and have been a very violent and dissolute civilisation, us ‘whites’. It is ending with no real harm to most of ourselves, only because our serf class marches to a very different drum. We have so rarely been faced with a violence greater than our own. And so our civilisation ends as these things apparently do, with the death of an idea that cannot be defended as it has been flogged to death, our perceived ‘superiority’ is over, and very fortunately, not with a bang, but a whimper.

        As to the looting. the loss of goods and property should never be compared to the loss of human life. I think that view is a large part of our white racist problem.

      • You didn’t refute a single point I made. LOL

        Therefore, congratulations – you just proved yourself as being stupid. LOL

  • None of the points the former mob member made are of any importance in this case. He was murdered – period. This is not changed by the fact that he may or may not have taken drugs or been in prison. This is pure whataboutism. Officers and other officials who act in such a way or simply ignore it cannot remain in office.
    And we are not only talking about the murder of an innocent man, but a code of silence within the police. This is not investigated due to the fact that some man died on their watch. This gets investigated because someone filmed and published it. If this had not been the case, the officers would still be working with their department and their would not have been an autopsy.
    This malpractice is now commonly known.
    The police officers should be removed from this case and the FBI or IA should work it and bring their own and external experts to analyze it. You cannot let the Mafia investigate the Mafia.

    • Minneapolis is run by Politically Correct Liberal Democrats.

      Because of Political Correctness the Minneapolis Police Department hired unqualified Black Somali Muslim as cops.
      One of these Somali cops Mohammed Noor in 2017 deliberately shot and killed an unarmed white woman.
      As result the lesbian police chief was fired and the Mayor Bicycle Betsy Hodges lost her bid for reelection.

      Shooting of Justine Damond
      On April 30, 2019, Noor was convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter
      The Somali-American Police Association issued a statement after the verdict claiming that racial bias contributed to Noor’s conviction.

      On July 19, 2017, Republican Michele Bachmann, who had represented Minnesota’s 6th congressional district in the U.S. Congress from January 2007 through January 2015, stated during a speech at the Eighth Annual Hog Roast and Republican gubernatorial forum in Waconia that Noor was an “affirmative-action hire”. Speaking to World Net Daily, Bachmann stated, “Noor comes from the mandated cover-up women culture. That’s why I’m wondering if they’ll ask whether his cultural views led him to shoot her. That’s something, if true, I can’t imagine the progressives would allow to get out.”
