I am probably one of the most ardent critics of the police—they’re agents of the state enforcing unjust laws. However, I am no fan of injustice—even when it happens to people I am not a fan of.
We all saw that toxicology report. Fentanyl is lethal in extremely small doses and George Floyd had more than enough of it in his system to kill him.
The widely circulated videos of Chauvin stepping on Floyd’s neck angered the American people—I know this because I was angered too, until the toxicology report came out.
Now, if that report is incorrect Chauvin is a murderer and should stay locked up, but the toxicology report likely isn’t wrong.
It is sad to say that Derek Chauvin was not convicted on evidence—he was convicted on pure emotion. Chauvin shouldn’t have stepped on George Floyd’s neck and certainly not for so long.
He should have also shown a bit more concern than he did, but did he murder him? Likely not.
I am no expert, but if this toxicology report is accurate, and there is little reason to believe it is not, then he didn’t murder Floyd. Floyd died of a drug overdose. Chauvin deserves a fair trial where the evidence is weighed, not emotion.

Despite proof he didn’t kill George Floyd, they still wouldn’t review his case.

The Epoch Times reports:
The Minnesota Supreme Court dismissed Mr. Chauvin’s petition in a one-sentence order on July 18 without explaining why.
This means his conviction and 22-and-a-half-year sentence under state law will remain in effect.
Mr. Chauvin had asked the Minnesota Supreme Court to take up his case in May after the Minnesota Court of Appeals rejected his claim that he did not receive a fair trial the month before.
“Derek Chauvin in no way shape or form got a fair trial, because we all know what would’ve happened if they found him ‘Not Guilty.’ BLM, Inc decided the outcome of that case,” Ryan Fournier remarked.

Merissa Hansen asked: “Why would a Supreme Court deny to review Derek Chauvin’s conviction when there’s absolute proof that Floyd died with a lethal dose of fentanyl in his system?”

The Hill reminded readers:
Nearly 11 months after Floyd’s killing, a jury convicted Chauvin on charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Chauvin, 47, has been appealing his conviction on various grounds while he serves a more than 22-year prison sentence.
