Chauvin Defense Forensic Expert Targeted By Maryland A.G. and Colleagues

Chauvin Defense Forensic Expert Targeted By Maryland A.G. and Colleagues

Dr. David Fowler was an effective witness for Chauvin, and now Maryland will review his work as the state’s Chief Medical Examiner looking for errors, as an open letter signed by fornensic colleagues call for his medical license to be investigated.

Derek Chauvin’s use-of-force expert, Barry Brodd, was targeted after his testimony. His former home, which the perps apparently assumed was still his, was  Vandalized and Smeared With Pig’s Blood.

A different type of targeting now is directed at Chauvin’s forensic expert, Dr. David Fowler. You may recall that Fowler was a very effective witness, testifying that George Floyd had a sudden cardiac arrythmia due to atherosclerotic and hypertensive heart disease, during his restraint by the police.

Andrew Branca covered the testimony, Chauvin Trial Day 13 Wrap-Up: Solid Day for Defense With Forensic Expert Witness:

Today saw the testimony of only one witness, but it was a witness of great importance to the defense, and therefore one whose testimony the state would perceive as important to damage.

This was the defense medical expert witness Dr. David Fowler, a retired forensic pathologist.

To not bury the lead, Dr. Fowler did what the defense needed done today, and did it well. That’s not to say his performance was perfect—he took a few hits off Prosecutor Jerry Blackwell during cross-examination, and could have done better deflecting some of those attacks.

At the same time, however, Blackwell’s rather over the top cross-examination of Fowler was initially too aggressive for Judge Cahill’s liking, resulting in a rapid sidebar and a more restrained Blackwell moments later, and Blackwell’s resort to snark led him to overreach several times, providing opportunities for defense counter-attack that defense counsel Eric Nelson did not pass up.

So, overall, a good day for the defense today, when they very much needed one, especially after the weak performance of defense expert witness Barry Brodd yesterday.

Dr. Fowler now is being targetted professionally, in moves which I predict are intended to render him unable to be an expert witness ever again, and even a vindictive attempt to pull his medical license.

The Baltimore Sun reports:

The Maryland’s Attorney General’s Office said Friday it believes there should be a review of “in custody” death reports produced by the state’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner during the tenure of Dr. David Fowler, nine days after Fowler testified that an ex-Minneapolis police officer was not responsible for the death of George Floyd in police custody.

The announcement came less than 24 hours after the attorney general’s office received a letter from the former medical examiner of Washington, D.C., Roger A. Mitchell, signed by 431 doctors from around the country, saying Fowler’s testimony and conclusions were so far outside the bounds of accepted forensic practice that all his previous work could come into question.

“Dr. Fowler’s stated opinion that George Floyd’s death during active police restraint should be certified with an ‘undetermined’ manner is outside the standard practice and conventions for investigating and certification of in-custody deaths. This stated opinion raises significant concerns for his previous practice and management,” the letter said.

Attorney General Brian Frosh’s office said Friday afternoon that it agreed for the need to review Fowler’s work, and said it had been in contact with Gov. Larry Hogan’s staff.

“We agree that it is appropriate for independent experts to review reports issued by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) regarding deaths in custody,” Raquel Coombs, a spokeswoman for Frosh, said in an statement to The Baltimore Sun. “We are already in conversations with the Governor’s Office about the need for such a review, and have offered to coordinate it.”

So they are going to pour over his career, ostensibly to serve the interests of justice, but reality as we all understand, as punishment for testifying on behalf of a hated defendant. And make no mistake, the letter from forensic colleagues is a prelude to professional retribution:

We believe the unsubstantiated opinion that carbon monoxide exposure may have contributed to the death of George Floyd is far outside that standard and is grounds for an immediate investigation into the practices of the physician as well as the practice of the Maryland State Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) while under his leadership. In addition, Dr. Fowler’s stated opinion that George Floyd’s death during active police restraint should be certified with an “undetermined” manner is outside the standard practice and conventions for investigating and certification of in-custody deaths. This stated opinion raises significant concerns for his previous practice and management.

Among the demands are:

“Investigation into the medical license of David Fowler, MB, ChB.Med.Path for possible ethical violations associated with death in custody diagnosis.”

NPR reports that Fowler rejected the attacks:

Fowler has defended his record, telling the Baltimore Sun that he was not solely responsible for autopsy conclusions as he worked with a large team of forensic pathologists, and saying of a potential review that “people need to do what they need to do.”

“I stand behind the outstanding work that all of our dedicated staff at the Maryland State Medical Examiner’s Office performed during my tenure as the Chief ME,” he told The Washington Post in a statement.

Fowler also stood by his work in the Chauvin trial, explaining that his “opinion was formulated after the collaboration of thirteen other highly experienced colleagues in multiple disciplines” and that it “set an ethical standard for the work needed in sensitive litigation.”

Chauvin had two expert witnesses. Both were attacked outside the courtroom, one physically, the other professionally. It’s part of a pattern of intimidation that surrounded the Chauvin trial, and will carry over to the upcoming trials of the other officers present at the scene that day who are accused of aiding and abetting Chauvin.

This is reaching a point where defending the court system may be in order.

    As a retired lawyer, I see this as a fundamental right that is being attacked.
    The rule of law must defend itself against mob rule. That is part of the job expected of District Attorneys. But the left is without morals.

      GWB in reply to jimB. | April 26, 2021 at 8:30 am

      I see this as a fundamental right that is being attacked
      You mean, like a civil right being denied under color of authority?

      There really need to be LOTS more lawsuits under that umbrella.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | April 26, 2021 at 5:58 am

    DeFUNDing….

Simply appalling. The attacks on people simply doing their job, but not concurring with the mob, are reprehensible.

The list of “doctors” etc., that did not personally examine Floyd, yet came to some determination, are as sketch as the unprofessional armchair diagnoses of Bandy X. Lee on President Trump.

    George_Kaplan in reply to Dimsdale. | April 25, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    The problem is while Lee was never really held accountable, those who offend the lynch mob may suffer. If that happens then justice will be impossible.

    mark311 in reply to Dimsdale. | April 26, 2021 at 5:35 am

    The specific issue raised is that the doctors claimed he made an opinion in court which was not substantiated ie it was literally just an opinion and not standard practise of his peers. I didn’t follow the trial closely enough to know if its true but if it is then its actually a pretty serious charge. The whole point of an expert is they represent opinion grounded in fact not mere opinions otherwise there is no bases to form the judgement.

      Paddy M in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 7:51 am

      Who’s surprised that mark is giving the mob the benefit of the doubt and offering an opinion from ignorance? Anyone?

        mark311 in reply to Paddy M. | April 26, 2021 at 4:49 pm

        Im not sure 431 drs count as a mob, seems a bit high brow. In fact characterising it as such seems pretty stupid. As for an opinion from ignorance please do enlighten me , I’d rather have a conversation than exchange insults.

          Kevin in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 5:49 pm

          How many doctors WOULD constitute a mob? 431 woke leftists are questioning the qualifications of Fowler, when two weeks ago he would have been supported by said 431 leftists. This brings the reasoning behind the 431 leftists into question, because the only reason for their inquiry is political, racial, and personal animus. Had Fowler been a black man, would the 431 leftists have been so quick to bring his professional bona fides into question? Or an Oriental? Chauvin was found guilty because there was no place on the face of the planet he could have received a trial by an unbiased jury, thanks to people like the 431 leftist “doctors”, the mainstream media, and hate groups such as blm, antifa, and the splc, which deserve no capitalization because of their illegitimate actions and leaders. They were prepared to whip up crowds to burn America to the ground for the death of a junkie. Yes, Chauvin committed a crime. No, it was not premeditated murder. Floyd was a man who was a drug addict, who lived on the fringes of society. He was a convicted felon with a rap sheet as long as your arm. I heard one of Floyd’s relatives comparing George Floyd’s death to that of Emmett Till. I nearly vomited. Comparing the death of an innocent 14 year old boy in 1955 in the South to that of a drug addicted felon in his 40’s living in one of the most liberal states in America in 2020 is disgusting. No, Floyd didn’t deserve to die. But eating a bag of fentanyl laced heroin when confronted by police didn’t improve his chances of a healthy life, either. He had opportunities available to him that Till never dreamed of, and idiot leftists are trying to make him out to be a hero. No. That is not the case.

          Kevin,

          The point I’m making is that mobs aren’t usually entirely comprising of those with extensive education.

          How do you know they are woke or on the left? It’s entirely possible that some are on the right. It’s a professional issue not a political one.

          You have a bit of a word salad situation , not much of what you say is actually relevant to the points being made at all.

          Paddy M in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 7:36 pm

          Enlighten yourself, dipshit. LI has the entire trial linked with video and everything.

          mark311 in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 8:00 pm

          @Paddym

          That’s a pretty stupid answer , I asked if you could justify your position or in other words point out where my view is mistaken so why would review the trial footage when I can ask you a simple question. Since you fucking made the assertion. Idiot.

          venril in reply to mark311. | April 27, 2021 at 9:39 am

          I wonder how many of that group examined the body? They are a lynch mob, second guessing testimony they didn’t like. Plenty of far left radicals wear lab coats.

      Milhouse in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 12:06 pm

      The specific issue raised is that the doctors claimed he made an opinion in court which was not substantiated ie it was literally just an opinion and not standard practise of his peers.

      Expert testimony is supposed to be the witness’s own expert opinion. A witness can only testify for himself, not for others. He’s supposed to give his own opinion and his own assessment of the standard of practice; if the opposite side thinks his opinion is wrong it can and does call its own expert witnesses. If it thinks he’s not an expert at all and shouldn’t be allowed to testify as one, it can and does raise that challenge before his testimony.

        GWB in reply to Milhouse. | April 26, 2021 at 2:52 pm

        (Which is precisely what the prosecution did!)

        mark311 in reply to Milhouse. | April 26, 2021 at 4:34 pm

        We aren’t talking about how the court process is playing out though. All that is fine the issue here is that his opinion allegedly can’t be found as standard practise Ie it’s not an opinion a reasonable expert should have. An expert who makes an opinion that doesn’t actually bear resemblance to standard practise is trending dangerous waters. From my own professional experience I could be struck of if I don’t follow industry guidelines. Although it seems implied in the text that one of the issues is that there isn’t a standard hence the letter.

      SeiteiSouther in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 2:02 pm

      You really don’t know how expert witnesses work.

        mark311 in reply to SeiteiSouther. | April 26, 2021 at 4:36 pm

        Kind of, I know how expert witnesses work in the UK , I’ve been open in my question about now knowing how it works in the US. But that’s neither here nor there the point I’ve made is slightly different to the one Milhouse is refering to which I hopefully have explained in my reply to him

          Kevin in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 5:56 pm

          Sorry, sport. The UK and the US are two entirely different judicial systems. We have a Constitution that is supposed to ensure that prosecutions like this aren’t derailed by outside influences. The appeal process will more than likely overturn this conviction, and if Chauvin survives, he will probably get off with manslaughter, which was the proper charge in the first place. By the time that happens, he may get off with time served. The expert was recognized as such by the court before the trial began. Any after the fact questioning is just political gotcha games by the left here. The cancel culture works in myriad ways in this, The Age Of Unreason.

        mark311 in reply to SeiteiSouther. | April 26, 2021 at 6:12 pm

        Obviously otherwise I would have made the distinction between my knowledge would I.

        Well it’s hard to argue that outside influences have influenced the outcome given the anonymous jury.

        Well here is a question for you if an expert after the fact is found to have made an error in fact can that form the basis of an appeal. My gut feeling is yes it could. That applies to Dr Fowlers ‘opinions’ too. If what he stated isn’t what an expert would be able to conclude then there is a case to be made that his opinion isn’t worth that of an expert and all the ramifications that follow from that.

        It seems to me you are using the terms cancel culture and woke to avoid proper scrutiny

Sue the pants off the doctors who signed the letter. Perfect case to dump absolute immunity for the AG.

The de fact assault on the Bill of Rights continues apace.

Something really important came out in the rebuttal of Dr. Fowler by the prosecution’s witness the next day. He claimed that the autopsy showed Floyd with 98% O2. Well folks, there is NO WAY Floyd would have died of asphyxiation with 98% blood O2. After all, anything over 95% O2 is normal for an adult. Of course, the defense failed to point this out and the jury didn’t pick up on it.

    CapeBuffalo in reply to SamC130. | April 26, 2021 at 1:51 am

    Unfortunately, that was a very confusing part of the testimony that wasn’t clarified. The 98% blood oxygen saturation that was measured when Mr Floyd was seen at the hospital was after he had been receiving positive pressure oxygen during his transport. This may explain the high oxygen concentration. Perhaps there is a doctor in the house who could explain this better.

      buck61 in reply to CapeBuffalo. | April 26, 2021 at 2:11 am

      the state did not explain as to how his oxygen level went from a level that caused his death back to normal, Tobin offered no evidence as to how, he was never asked. The state witnesses are assuming the fact that he died because of low oxygen. It was never taken at the scene and the only time it was taken it was normal.

      mailman in reply to CapeBuffalo. | April 26, 2021 at 5:12 am

      The guy is dead, there is no way AFTER DEATH that his bloody oxygen levels can go up to 98%. I suspect this is a side effect of being dead?

    alaskabob in reply to SamC130. | April 26, 2021 at 2:26 am

    Confusing. I seriously doubt a cold dead body retains an oxygen saturation of 98%. bodies turn cyanotic. Once subdued Floyd eventually lapsed into unconsciousness followed by respiratory arrest from his drug overdose. Respiratory arrest leads to cardiac arrest and then the clock starts as to brain death. One can resuscitate a person , bring the lungs and heart back on line but nobody home upstairs. The positive pressure would bring O2 levels up but with Floyd’s heart not with it. Goodbye. We had a patient with a long history of bad heart disease code in the ICU…fully wired up…A-line , etc. The R-2 ran the code and I did the chest compressions for 45minutes. I could compress to a decent pressure . He died with perfect labs but from electrical-mechanical dissociation. Floyd was a dead man walking and to distill it all down to Chauvin is nuts. Floyd’s restraint…non-lethal …set in motion the events his precipitated.

    We have an anesthesiologist who participated in this site…who can chime in especially when dealing with cardio-pulmonary arrest.

      bigskydoc in reply to alaskabob. | April 26, 2021 at 10:50 am

      Speaking from a purely medical perspective, the 98% oxygen saturation, measured in the hospital, is entirely meaningless.

      Mr. Floyd could have died exactly as described by any of the various theories claimed (neck compression, positional asphyxia, carbon monoxide, myocardial infarction, overdose) and still would have had a good oxygen saturation, upon arrival to the hospital (falsely normal if carbon monoxide poisoning), as long as effective CPR was being administered. That is the entire point of CPR, to keep the blood oxygen level, and blood pressure, sufficient to sustain life temporarily.

      Now, if the EMS records shows an oxygen saturation of >90% before CPR was started, then we have an entirely different story. That would not be possible if Mr. Floyd died of hypoxia (positional asphyxia, pharyngeal compression), as theorized by the prosecution. I suppose it could be >90% if he died of carotid occlusion as the prosecution initially suggested.

      The legal question is entirely different, and I will leave that to the lawyers.

JusticeDelivered | April 25, 2021 at 10:15 pm

This crap must be stopped. Dealing with uncivilized people in a civilized manner is rarely effective.

    Who is going to stop it? Biden’s Department of Justice? Democrat Governors? Democrat State Representatives? Fuck me, these people are BEHIND these actions so there is absolutely FUCK all they will ever to do protect the rule of law. Democrats have no incentive to protect the rule of law because the Rule of Law is an inconvenience to their political power dominance.

This is something to consider in choosing where to live. While I loathe the idea of fleeing the state where I grew up and the general area where my family has resided for 4 generations (as far back as 1912) and where my extended family lives, when I see moves similar to this being made by state government it makes me check zillow for locations in other states.

I notice the GOP in my own county has removed anything of a web presence, no doubt because it’s become too dangerous (and it has) to have your face on there.

This is what war looks like. It’s far worse than the surface indicates. For every action like this they are planning 10 more just like it.

    Another manifestation of the Left’s near obsession with control. They know how to live your life better than you. Dare you question the narrative and risk your everything.

This is why President Trump couldn’t get many top notch lawyers often to defend him or help with the election

They want to terrify every single person that can help any designated person so that person will be defenseless

They want to destroy all our lives

They want us all to die

A$$ho!es…

I always loved going to Germany but not in the 1930’s

these people are friggin Nazis

In Minnesota a good prosecutor was disciplined by the Lawyer’s Board for attempting to interfere with a medical examiner’s ability to testify in cases due to that ME’s having testified contrary to the prosecutor’s wishes. Seems like the same principle should apply here. Ethics complaints should be filed against these people.

they don’t think they will find anything

they just want to send a message to anyone else that might think about testifying for a white guy

and we thought our only problems were John Roberts and Hawaiian judges

Just further shows that the Chauvin trial of a classic Soviet-tyle farce. Floyd died as a direct consequence of his drug overdose as the officer didn’t have the weight and position required to prevent Floyd from breathing. Lies prevailed.

So 432 doctors around the nation pass judgment. Theirs are suppositions… not borne of facts. To them Isay… prove it! Prove someone of Chavin’s size can press someone to death when the history of executions by pressing shows far more weight is needed. Prove it…. Under medical supervision and modern monitoring one can see the effects of pressing… I’d suggest one of the 432 to volunteer to prove their position.

This is another pile-on that started prior to the trial with a BLM-initiated lawsuit against Flowler in another case. The Medical Examiner Baker also concluded the death was not from asphyxia and he faced some reprisals too. This is getting to be like the Salem witch trials and the McCarthy witch hunts. Where is a fair trial where a witness can testify without being intimidated? If Ellison had charged Chauvin with murder 1, no question he would have been convicted and the jury would have handed down the death penalty without a qualm. This fever must break but how and when? I have stopped watching TV; I’ve stopped listening to NPR; I’m not even reading the newpaper as a rule, and I don’t draw conclusions until I can verify any facts. This is too serious to be treated as a political issue–it is somehow a part of cancel culture but on an even more sinister level because it is affecting the law of law and due process. Would it be possible for some attorneys to gather signatures to protest this letter?

    CapeBuffalo in reply to Samantha. | April 26, 2021 at 1:56 am

    NPR??? What were you thinking!!!

    Char Char Binks in reply to Samantha. | April 26, 2021 at 10:55 am

    There was no McCarthy witch hunt. McCarthy was a patriot who exposed Soviet infiltration in our government and military. He was stymied by establishment politicians of both parties, but he was vindicated by history.

      DaveGinOly in reply to Char Char Binks. | April 26, 2021 at 3:15 pm

      Correct. McCarthy was a senator. The damage was done by the HOUSE investigation into “un-American activities.” Where are they today? We have some real work for them.

      What? I don’t know what historical sources you’ve read by McCarthy was an absolute dickhead. He was well known for his smear tactics and watch hunting. History has only further highlighted his ego, self serving nature, and the damage he did. That’s why McCarthyism is such a negative term.

      @DaveGinOly

      McCarthy did the damage with his relentless subpoena of many people to testify at committee. The suggestion that what he did or those following in his footsteps did was somehow good is pretty poorly thought out. McCarthy was the original cancel culture and much worse form of it.

        txvet2 in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 7:43 pm

        The Venona project pretty much vindicated McCarthy.

          mark311 in reply to txvet2. | April 26, 2021 at 8:09 pm

          No it did not. The venona project highlighted a number of soviet spies very few of which were accused by McCarthy , and that doesn’t change the fact that McCarthy attempted to smear and go after many because they were on the wrong side of the aisle not for a good or noble reason. He was a dangerous demagogue who caused immense harm and the venona project only shows how ineffectual he was at his stated goal. Indeed it could be argued his shit throwing antics gave cover to some of the real spies.

          txvet2 in reply to txvet2. | April 26, 2021 at 8:34 pm

          McCarthy never, to my knowledge, accused anyone of being a communist who didn’t eventually turn out to be one. The main reason he’s been so thoroughly destroyed is because he was right. That’s what you communists do.

          mark311 in reply to txvet2. | April 27, 2021 at 6:23 am

          To your knowledge? Well he accused well over 200 people and the venona project identified around a dozen. It’s pretty clear from the historic record that he was using the idea of communists as a political tool given that he never actually identified any communists from his list of 205. That number seemed vary quite a bit as well and he didn’t even produce any evidence. That’s my understanding anyways.

I would like to see the list of the 432 forensic pathologists who signed the letter condemning Dr. Fowler. Inquiring minds would like to know.
I know one thing, if 432 forensic pathologists signed a letter praising Dr. Fowler, it would have been published in the NY Times and WAPO with pictures and addresses.

I have quite a few questions regarding this.

Firstly the claim from the 431 other practitioners is that “We believe the
unsubstantiated opinion that carbon monoxide exposure may have contributed to the death of George Floyd is far outside that standard”

Is this the case did Dr. Fowler just opine that this was the case?

Second how does the expert witness system work in the US, in the UK there are clear rules for expert witnesses if an expert makes a statement they have to define whether its substantiated by something whether thats proven by calculation and an appropriate standard or backed by the literature or whatever OR whether its opinion ie they have to be really clear on whether its there professional opinion based on the facts available.

Third its suggested within the letter that Dr Fowler is currently being sued ” While Dr. Fowler is not the first and is unfortunately not likely to be the last forensic pathologist to testify in such a manner, his being named in a current lawsuit for questionable certification of an in-custody death raises the concern of a pattern of bias in practice.”. Would this be admissible as part of any retrial? I guess it might not be relevant depending on how the retrial operates.

    Char Char Binks in reply to mark311. | April 26, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Fowler didn’t claim that CO poisoning was a substantial cause of floyd’s death; he raised reasonable doubt due to the fact that breathing CO is bad for the respiratory system, and that it was highly likely that, with his face so close to the pipe, that’s exactly what floyd was doing.

      Interesting thank you, I don’t know if that’s factored into the comments from the those writing the letter or nor. Its pretty opaque on what basis they are making the statement. I don’t know nearly enough to opine either way on whether what they are saying is right or wrong.

Bucky Barkingham | April 26, 2021 at 7:15 am

Don’t forget the attorney with the same name as Chauvin’s defense counsel who received death threats. Also IIRC didn’t a number of law firms decline to defend Chauvin because of intimidation?

If only there was an American Civil Liberties Union to stand up for the rights of hated defendants.

Justice for Ashli Babbitt!

Lucifer Morningstar | April 26, 2021 at 8:49 am

Any chance at all of seeing a list of the people who actually signed that document? All that I see at the bottom is a “Click to Sign” link that leads to a Surveymonkey page asking for a Name, Medical Specialty, and email address. But no way to see who has signed the document. Thanks.

https://legalinsurrection.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Open-Letter_2021-Dr.-David-Fowler.pdf

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OPENLETTER2021

So, 431 “doctors” sign a letter criticizing Dr. Fowler’s conclusions. Exactly how many of those 431 were pathologists, forensic examiners, medical examiners, etc., with forensic certifications? How many were doctors of education or some other discipline having nothing to do with pathology or forensics, but having political agendas?

I, too, would like to see the signatory list as well as who is fronting for this witch hunt.

I’ll bet that not a one of those 431 signatories to that letter raised any questions whatsoever about the fraud surrounding the Chinese Flu death determinations.

Social justice, based on mob rule and identity politics, will completely demolish our constitutional system of justice if it’s allowed to go any further. The hopelessly ignorant people supporting such nonsense will ultimately be crushed by it, yet they are perfectly content to follow their radical leaders into oblivion.

This goes well beyond politics, it is quickly degenerating into abject chaos and societal suicide.

Minnesota’s attorney general said there was no evidence to charge Derek Chauvin with a hate crime in the murder of George Floyd

Minnesota AG Keith Ellison says he ‘felt a little bad’ for Derek Chauvin

https://nypost.com/2021/04/25/minnesota-ag-says-he-felt-a-little-bad-for-derek-chauvin/

    jsp13 in reply to paralegal. | April 26, 2021 at 3:47 pm

    Keith feels bad for Chauvin because he’s smart enough to realize that the facts of the case do not accord with the officially sanctioned narrative. Chauvin arrived on the scene after George Floyd was in cuffs and he simply held him down until EMTs arrived. That’s why he stayed on top of him for over 9 minutes. Why would an officer put scene security at risk when an ambulance is due to arrive at any moment? The officers were trying to help George Floyd. He helped load George Floyd into the ambulance and then attended the hospital. There was no intent to kill or even cause bodily harm. Keith understands this but there is no turning back the tide. He set this whole prosecution in motion by overcharging all 4 officers. He charged the officers without doing a proper investigation. Murder 2 and Murder 3 should have never been presented to a jury who was going to face that much public pressure to convict.

Char Char Binks | April 26, 2021 at 11:08 am

The more signatories to a letter, the more BS in the letter.

If any of these doctors actually had an opinion, a reasoned, scientific, professional opinion, he would write his own letter, and not simply join the pile-on.

Uhhhh Keith, i’m pretty sure it had more to do with the polictal abuses by you and your fellow democrats and the lack of evidence of causation coupled with the abundance of evidence of a superseding cause.

Keith Ellison Says ‘History Of Unaccountability’ Led To Doubts About Chauvin Verdict

We are only a few steps away from living out “The Running Man” film: convict you of a crime you didn’t commit by any means necessary and then destroy your life on TV for the entertainment and satisfaction of the masses.

So this is how “justice” will work in this country from now on: witnesses and jurors subject to intimidation by the mob.

Heck, next time the mob won’t have to bother to actually lean on the witnesses and jurors. Anybody who watched the Chauvin trial would have gotten the message.

Can we please investigate Dr. Rich for his absolutely appalling testimony and Dr. Tobin for his bunk video analysis of the basically made up EELV testimony? Fowler struck me as the only medical expert that wasn’t spouting complete BS. Dr. Baker wasn’t too bad either but he bent to some political pressure in the end.

    Tobin was a quack and completely out of his area of expertise.

    Fowler and Baker were the two nest medical witnesses. And it was absolutely clear Baker had been worked over.

This AG is completely out of line. They should be investigating Dr. Fauci for all of the fraud he’s perpetrated on the rest of the country.

I think it is hilarious that they mentioned carbon monoxide when that is not even remotely controversial. Fowler said it might have played a part and should have been looked at, but that he wouldn’t put much weight on it sans that evidence.

They aren’t even trying to hide their partisan motivations. Every single person who signed that letter should have their licenses pulled for incompetency if they think Fowler was wrong to even mention a possible contributory factor to a death.

The left is all in on this mobbing tactic, and they won’t stop until they get a taste of it in return.
