George Floyd was murdered on video. We watched George Floyd get murdered on video. We watched as George Floyd had a knee held to his neck for nearly 9 minutes where it is clearly visibly he is no longer a "threat" by MPD's account he was resisting arrest. He isn't even conscious for the last few minutes of the video. It is inexcusable that the Hennepin County Medical Examiner would rule his death as a result of 'underlying conditions' rather than the documented evidence that he lost his life because an officer decided to, literally, crush the life out of him. 
We all know how far corruption goes. We all know who the Hennepin County Medical Examiner was attempting to help by minimizing Derek Chauvin's direct role in George's murder. There needs to be consequences for anybody who had a direct affiliation with their preliminary report. 

"The independent autopsy's findings came after the Hennepin County Medical Examiner found "no physical findings" to "support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation," according to a criminal complaint released by the Hennepin County Attorney's Office on Friday. Preliminary autopsy results cited in the complaint involving Chauvin said combined effects of being restrained, any potential intoxicants in Floyd's system and his underlying health issues, including heart disease, probably contributed to the man's death."

If George's family didn't hire an independent autopsy from someone without ties to the corrupt Minneapolis Police Department, do you think they would've EVER admitted to the abhorrent faults in their 'initial findings'? No. You know it. I know it. More importantly, they know it. Sign this petition and let's continue to dismantle this country's tradition that institutional corruption is tolerated.

RIP Mr. George Floyd
