One of the big questions no one is asking right now is whether the knee on the neck technique that former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin used to restrain George Floyd was an approved departmental procedure. As it turns out, the knee on the neck thing is very common.
Police across the country use the technique. Cops use it to restrain suspects when they turn violent and resist arrest. (The Israeli Defense Forces developed the technique to keep soldiers from being hurt by Hezbollah terrorists when they have to restrain them.)
And despite this technique being used in hundreds of arrests every single day in America, no one ever suffocates to death from it. Which means that the entire George Floyd narrative is not what you might think it is.
Floyd’s autopsy (the first one, conducted by an official medical examiner), showed that he died when his heart stopped from an overdose of fentanyl and meth. This means that George Floyd was not killed by the Minneapolis police. He died from a drug overdose.
Anyway, here’s another example of the knee on the neck technique being used against a white suspect. When you’re a white suspect, you get two knees.
