When people try to tell you this man died from the 'Rona and there was no way for that poor cop to know, point them towards the Eggshell Skull rule.

It won't help but it might make you feel better.

It's the risk you take when oppressing the unwashed masses.  If you don't want to make yourself sick, don't oppress.

Of course that won't be included in the defense.

On the other hand, if it goes to trial, the defense will bring up that he was zonked out on fentanyl and meth. Fentanyl kills by making your body forget to breathe. The defense will probably argue that the restraint Chauvin and company put on Floyd would not normally have killed someone, but the respiratory depression from the fentanyl was an unexpected contributing factor.

This won't make the manslaughter charge go away. It may make 2nd degree murder more difficult though.

Yeah, but you're going to lose consciousness first.  You're not going to be awake saying, "I can't breathe" because fentanyl made you "forget".

I'm pretty sure you still have respiratory depression while conscious. He probably wouldn't have lost consciousness from the fentanyl alone. However, with the added pressure, it wouldn't have been a good mix.

Only know of one person who for sure had it.
They said the muscle and joint pain was incredible.
So hopefully Chauvin has that too look forward to.

In previous fark threada many called those who didn't wear masks and went out in public, gathered in mass, and disregarded social distancing as "plague rats that should be put down to make an example of". So I guess given your previous comments you are OK with what happened to Mr. Floyd and expect the same treatment for those protesting/rioting/looting.
 
2020-06-04 11:28:32 AM  
I saw people on YouTube last night claiming that he died of a fentanyl overdose like that would make a farking difference at this point
 
2020-06-04 11:30:50 AM  
well pretty much inevitable that the pandemic will hit the protest, every one in DC should write a note that if they die during the protest that the rest need to build a catapult and fly their body over the whitehouse fence or at min others should grab shovel and bury them on the lafayette park.

Hey everyone, look at the guy who's never had the wind knocked out of him.

If you could still talk, you hadn't had the wind knocked out of you.


When struck in the solar plexus with sufficient force, the human diaphragm begins to spasm.  During this time, air moves in and out of the trachea without permitting oxygen transfer in the lungs.  It is VERY common during these spasms for people to vocalize.  For the duration of the spasm, however, they are, in fact, not breathing.

More to the point, there are NUMEROUS conditions that trick the brain into the same panic response as drowning.  Any type of hypoxia wherein CO2 is present in the airway will present to the brain as drowning.  Hypoxia such as you might get when somebody is compressing your carotid artery while 350 to 400 lbs compresses your ribcage.  Or such as my mother experienced before being rushed to the hospital earlier this year with pneumonia.  Pulse Ox was 64% when the EMTs arrived.  She was gasping for air, but continuing to speak.  No actual oxygen exchange was occurring, ergo no respiration, ergo no breathing.

Sorry if that all comes off as condescending.  I shouldn't have just come at you like I did.

But you're mistaken.

Although technically true, the patient/victim perceives it as an inability to breathe and will respond as such.  Ask any of your friends who have had an asthma attack how they described it.  If you know anybody who works in an emergency department ask them how fast a patient is surrounded by medical personnel if they enter the ED and say "I can't breath".

The whole you can talk you can breathe thing comes from the old first classes where they taught that if a victim that appears to be choking can vocalize or talk, they should be able to create enough force to expel the junk on their own without being aided by a bystander.  It wasn't meant to apply to any other scenario that I can think of and certainly not what the idiot cop did.

No, I think that "The Text Is Now Purple" is suggesting that if people start losing the ability to breathe, they should spend their last few moments of life being more literally correct about their own fate as the life slowly leaves their body. "I can't breathe" - no; try, "I think I am losing the ability to breathe, but I'm not one hundred percent sure because it has never happened to me; please look into this immediately".

It's what someone actually struggling to breathe would probably say in a medical emergency instead of "I'm having trouble breathing."  One, it gets attention quickly, or should; and two, it wastes less of the time and the oxygen in short supply.

The only one I know who has it is still on a ventilator, 5 weeks later.
Doesn't require the full support as in the past, they let him try to breath on his own for short periods but, yeah.

So that's something to look forward to as well, I guess....
