He knew Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who killed him. The two were bouncers at El Nuevo Rodeo, a club in Minneapolis. This is perhaps the most curious detail, one which CDMedia expects will bear fruit when it comes to Chauvin’s motive.
As the NY Post reported, “Floyd and Chauvin both worked security at the El Nuevo Rodeo Club on Lake Street in South Minneapolis — and overlapped shifts on popular music nights within the last year”.
He was a felon. As the BBC reports, “His life then took a different turn, with a string of arrests for theft and drug possession culminating in an armed robbery charge in 2007, for which he was sentenced to five years in prison.” In the perpetration of the crime, Floyd held a gun to a woman’s stomach.
His rap sheet includes various other misdemeanors, including theft, multiple counts for possession of coc aine, and criminal trespassing. He went by several aliases.
Floyd’s toxicology report is damning. The man who moved from Houston to Minneapolis to make a clean start was anything but clean, with fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system. The Hennepin County Medical Center autopsy report can be viewed in full here.
The report also reveals a positive result for COVID-19 in April. The diagnosis was ruled not to be the cause of death.
Further, it reveals the cause of death to be “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restrain, and neck compression”. 85 year-old Dr. Michael Baden, was hired to do an extra, independent autopsy on Floyd. To his eye, the cause was asphyxiation. Baden has stirred controversy due to his diagnoses of many famous cases involving celebrities and criminals, including his opinion that Jeffrey Epstein did kill himself.
Floyd also appeared in a pornographic movie. As a guest on the “Habib Show,” he and two other men are filmed having sex with a young woman who gives her name as “Kimberly.”
Some tabloids have accused Floyd of gang affiliation as well, as he sports a “YRT” (Young Risk Takers) t-shirt at the beginning of the adult film, but CDMedia has not uncovered any reason to believe the group is anything more than an offshoot of Houston-based “Screwed Up Click” [sic], a consortium of rappers of which Floyd, nicknamed “Big Floyd”, was a member.
Floyd tried to use a $20 bill to buy cigarettes in a Minneapolis market just prior to his arrest. The cashier spotted the fake and returned the bill to Floyd. He went outside, returned minutes later, and the bill was accepted. Then the cashier noticed the second bill was fake and called the police who arrived minutes later, according to the store’s owner, Mike Abumayyaleh.
Next thing it is quite possible that all stops will be pulled out to demonize Mr. Floyd as that is the MO of TPTB just as turning him into a saint is the MO we are seeing now.
