Another piece of the puzzle. A defense case will be made that 6'-9" ex-con drug addict and former gang member George Floyd was either actively resisting or exhibiting active aggression when he was further restrained after being handcuffed.

The Minneapolis Police Department trains officers on how to use choke holds intended to render a person unconscious. The training manual reads, “Neck Restraint: Non-deadly force option. Defined as compressing one or both sides of a person’s neck with an arm or leg, without applying direct pressure to the trachea or airway (front of the neck).” It also states, “Unconscious Neck Restraint: The subject is placed in a neck restraint with the intention of rendering the person unconscious by applying adequate pressure.” Minneapolis police received training in restraint techniques from Israeli law-enforcement officers in 2012. Palestinians report that it is not uncommon for Israeli military forces to use the knee-to-neck choke hold. A DOJ report on the Baltimore Police Department showed that lack of training leads to excessive force being used against those with mental health issues, juveniles and people who present “little or no threat against others,” such as those already restrained. -GEG
