I'm sure maybe he was...Once again the 9 mins didn't cause that...

no life-threatening injuries identified (read: Chauvin didn't kill him)...
I guess science won't matter in Chauvin's case, just appearances and outrage because he cried for mama on video.
4x lethal dose of fentanyl
2x lethal dose of norfentanyl
Overdose results in respiratory depression which is reversible with naloxone. Sudden death can also occur because of cardiac arrest or severe anaphylactic reaction. The estimated lethal dose of fentanyl in humans is 2 mg. The recommended serum concentration for analgesia is 1–2 ng/ml and for anaesthesia it is 10–20 ng/ml. Blood concentrations of approximately 7 ng/ml or greater have been associated with fatalities where poly-substance use was involved.
CARDIOPULMONARY ARREST COMPLICATING LAW ENFORCEMENT
SUBDUAL, RESTRAINT, AND NECK COMPRESSION

But why should they believe him, when there are no signs suggesting he couldn't breathe, and also while he is actively resisting arrest? After all, he was actually breathing.

If he is complaining of breathing difficulties prior to the knee on the neck then it increases the wilful negligence of the officers and Chauvin in particular.

I think he might of been going into cardiac arrest, in any case, he was on the ground and compliant, you cant let the police do that sh#t for 9 minutes..nobody is changing my mind on THAT. The use of force is to gain compliance, he went well beyond that.

I think the question here might not be the 9 mins or even the real cause but the last 2 when he was unconscious.
What if Chauvin continued to apply pressure to Floyd's neck to make sure he was dead?

That's all fine and good to say, but a police officer does not have the authority, and should not have the authority, to make that decision. That's the law, however inconvenient it may be.
I'm pretty sure you're referring to the old man who was talking to Floyd, who was one of the witnesses on the stand yesterday(Day3).
Speaking of crying mama in the video, seems like somebody (Chauvin?) said something like "just get in the car" and he replied "I will" (compliance), he then moves his head and chest up and Chauvin presses down with his knee. That was when Floyd said "mama".
If he was willing to get in the car at that point, why continue pressing?

If I was on the jury, my vote would be guilty. That's my opinion, you got yours, we will see what happens soon.
