    Does anyone know where the two passengers in GF's car went to? I would've expected to see them among the bystanders seen in the 'angry mob' videos.

    That's a great question. I'm still trying to find out of that $20.00 bill was counterfeit.
    It would have been nice if the trial started out with the cashier testifying before the 911 call.

    I read these the other day, but I'm too tired to read again... but here are two articles from my history that I found as I went down that rabbit hole the other day. I'm sure we will be hearing lots of info (two sides?) from all the docs on the witness list!

    Why does this matter at all? If it was counterfeit or not is completely irrelevant to DC’s actions that day. DC certainly didn’t know if it was actually counterfeit at the time. GF could’ve been running a multi-billion dollar counterfeit operation. That shouldn’t impact how his arrest was handled.

    If the defense attorney was referring to the trachea it doesn't matter if his airflow wasn't restricted. When you have a weight on your torso and on your neck every time you exhale the pressure makes it impossible for the lungs to expand again. That's how Jesus died on the cross. He was asphyxiated. An ingenious way to kill someone slowly: the arms high over the head and the body's own gravitational pull limiting lung expansion. Every exhale deflates the lungs and eventually the person cannot intake a breath. I am amazed that LE learn this method to restrain an individual yet are ignorant of the physiology involved in the process.

    His pants were down below his bottom (blue pants). His undershorts with pockets are black. His blue pants were pulled down below his bottom when he was pulled/dragged out of the car and placed on the ground. MOO from watching 2 hours of video this am.

    Do you perhaps think maybe he wouldn't have been arrested if the bill was real?

    They stood by the car around the corner... where they were told to stay. They had NOOOOO idea that GF was dead as the others did. The officer (think it was Lane) told his friends to put GF's phone in his car as "he will need it when he picks up his car" :eek: Then, MMA guy walks up and tells the gal what happened and she is like WTF!!!!

    Yes, I watched the video posted on page one of this thread, post #6. The video is from a body cam worn by one of the two first arriving officers. He was restraining Mr Floyd's leg area later during the footage. The two passengers stayed where they were told...against the wall, near where Floyd's car was parked. The camera footage has the cop going back to check on them, after the ambulance left. He also goes back into Cup Foods to interview the manager

    ETA: Thanks dixiegirl for the video!

    The AC condensation crossed my mind too, although I didn’t pay attention at the beginning. The first time it happened to our car I panicked!

    When the defense gets it's turn perhaps the cashier will be called first to help to answer that question and perhaps more. JMO

    It would be nice to get the complete picture. It would be a shame if he was falsely arrested in the first place.

    Who knows. Yet another completely irrelevant detail. The police don’t get to kill us for committing crimes unless their life or the life of others is in immediate jeopardy.

    Okay, so your opinion is he committed a crime. I wasn't sure.

    From @cathyrusson on Twitter

    #DerekChauvinTrial - More from the pool reporter on jury reaction to fiery cross between Nelson and Hansen:
    "some jurors seemed uncomfortable with the level of hostility that developed during cross"

    I would not feel comfortable rendering aid if i was in that position either. I am not an officer so i have no idea what they did or didnt do was wrong because idk. I do think it is safe to assume that in any situation you keep your eyes on the threat, which was the growing crowd imo

    I think he said he had been "hooping," but yes, we don't know how often he used drugs, what kind of tolerance he had, or the amount he consumed that day. Of course it's not healthy to do drugs when you have a heart condition but apparently he was active and playing basketball right up until the time of his death.

    Yet he died on that day, when police restrained him and kneeled on his neck until he stopped breathing.
