The video below might be enough to prove reasonable doubt in the mind of potential jurors in the George Floyd case, which is anticipated to be very emotional and trying for the American people.
Recently one of the attorneys in the case who represents one of the former police officers involved said that the evidence that Floyd died from an overdose and not a knee on the neck, was so strong that the case against the officers involved should be dropped altogether.

“A lawyer for one of the former Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd’s death said he planned to argue in court that Floyd “killed himself” by dying of a fentanyl overdose and an underlying heart condition.
After a judge last month lifted a gag order on the case against the four officers, Earl Gray, an attorney for Thomas Lane, spoke with the Los Angeles Times about his defense plans.
“None of these guys — even Chauvin — actually killed him,” Gray said, referring to Derek Chauvin, the officer who knelt on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes on May 25. “He killed himself.”
A broadcaster slowed the film of Floyd down, to show a white spot on his tongue, which he said proves that Floyd had taken something right before he died, and that the footage could provide a “reasonable doubt” in what is likely to be one of the highest-profile cases in American history.
Floyd died in May, while in the custody of the police, one who was seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck, presumably killing Floyd.
Violent uprisings happened after the video of Floyd’s death was played over and over, agitating people.
Vinnie Politan narrated the video for his Facebook page, Court TV:
“This video is when George Floyd is initially stopped and it is in slow motion, look at the tongue- a little white spot. The defense says that this is the most important in the case.
One of the attorneys for former officer says that spot is Fentanyl and it was ingested at the time of the video.
The Defense is saying this is an overdose case, this is not a man with a knee on his neck, or who can not breathe. This is 2MG of Fentanyl, the defense just has to prove that this is a reasonable explanation for the death of George Floyd.
The defense just has to raise a reasonable explanation, prosecutors have to prove that it happened. So if what the defense shows is reasonable that is enough for reasonable doubt. Look at the white dot on the tongue.
This is going to happen at the trial and each one of the defendants will hire someone to come in and talk about the white dot on the tongue, and the fen t in his system.”
