Authorities Just Released George Floyd’s Complete Autopsy Report. Read It Here.
The Hennepin County, Minn. Medical Examiner’s Office on Wednesday evening released its complete 20-page autopsy report detailing the death of George Floyd. The report was released the same day three former officers were accused by prosecutors of playing a role in Floyd’s alleged murder. Prosecutors also on Wednesday upgraded charges against former officer Derek Chauvin, who now faces a new count of second-degree felony murder. Chauvin had previously been charged with third-degree murder.
The medical examiner’s report lists Floyd’s death as having occurred May 25 at 9:25 p.m.; the autopsy was conducted exactly twelve hours later at 9:25 a.m. on May 26.
As was released earlier by the medical examiner’s office, Floyd’s cause of death is listed officially as “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restrain, and neck compression.” The full autopsy report states further that “no life-threatening injuries [were] identified.” The medical examiner’s office had also previously deemed the manner of Floyd’s death a “homicide.”
The report describes Floyd as a “46-year-old man who became unresponsive while being restrained by law enforcement officers; he received emergency medical care in the field and subsequently in the Hennepin HealthCare (HHC) Emergency Department, but could not be resuscitated.”
Floyd had contracted the novel coronavirus, sometimes called COVID-19 or 2019-nCoV. A postmortem nasal swab collected on the day of the autopsy turned out to be “positive for 2019-nCoV,” the report says. However, the medical examiner’s findings suggest that the actual infection probably occurred nearly two months earlier.
“The decedent was known to be positive for 2019-nCoV RNA on 4/3/2020,” the report goes on to say. “Since PCR positivity for 2019-nCoV RNA can persist for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease, the autopsy result most likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent PCR positivity from previous infection.”
In other words, the medical examiner’s office believes that Floyd would not have been suffering from symptoms when he died.
Elsewhere, the report says Floyd’s lungs “show[ed] generally normal overall architecture, without malignancy, pneumonia, granulomatous inflammation, or polarizable intravascular foreign material.”
The report explains, in detail, injuries to Floyd’s body. “Blunt force injuries” included “cutaneous blunt force injuries of the forehead, face, and upper lip” (those are injuries affecting the skin); “mucosal injuries of the lips” (that’s generally the skin inside the lips); “cutaneous blunt force injuries of the shoulders, hands, elbows, and legs,” and “patterned contusions (in some areas abraded) of the wrists, consistent with restraints (handcuffs).”
The report says Floyd’s autopsy revealed three “natural diseases:” (1) “arteriosclerotic heart disease,” which it described as “multifocal, severe;” (2) “hypertensive heart disease,” which included a “clinical history of hypertension,” and (3) a left pelvic tumor, which it described as “incidental.” (Incidental tumors are generally benign.)
The report elsewhere said that a “cross sections of coronary arteries, though not all ideally oriented, confirm the gross impression of atherosclerotic narrowing.”
Blood samples collected at 9:00 p.m. on May 25th, before Floyd died, tested positive for the following, the autopsy report states. (Quantities are given for those who are medically inclined.)
- Fentanyl 11 ng/mL
- Norfentanyl 5.6 ng/mL
- 4-ANPP 0.65 ng/mL
- Methamphetamine 19 ng/mL
- Various types of THC: 11-Hydroxy Delta-9 THC 1.2 ng/mL; Delta-9 Carboxy THC 42 ng/mL; Delta-9 THC 2.9 ng/mL
- Cotinine positive
- Caffeine positive
A urine drug screen tested positive for presumptive positive for cannabinoids, amphetamines, and fentanyl/metabolite.
A urine drug screen also confirmed free morphine of 86 ng/mL.
Here is a chart of the positive findings taken from the report itself:
The full document contains detailed findings about the quantities of each of these substances and what they may mean.
Floyd’s body was accompanied to the morgue by a pair of XXL blue Nike track pants, a black ribbed sleeveless tee shirt, a pair of 3XL “Starting 5” brand black and gray sweatpants, and a pair of black dress socks: one of the socks had a gray heel and a gray toe box.
The medical examiner’s office said it released the report “with the consent and cooperation of Mr. George Floyd’s family and their legal representatives” and pursuant to Minnesota law, “which requires a court order to release an autopsy report to the public.”

this is an ongoing paper describing the J&J vaccine for covid19.
I will be adding to this as I go with excerpts from the papers themselves. My initial reaction is good for the use of this vaccine. the vaccine is a standard style vaccine as far as I can tell thus far(inactive virus in a suspended medium) as opposed to a vaccine that modifies the RnA in your body with unknown long term effects.I will be adding in my comments as I go in italicized in parens.
after reading this data so far, this vaccine appears to be safer than other vaccines. tested across the globe, and with the same efficacy as a normal vaccine(67%). there appears to be no nuerological issues. yes there maybe an issue for those that are allergic to the growing agent.
the first part of this includes excerpts from the Jansen press release of the EUA. to be found at https://www.janssenlabels.com/emergency-use-authorization/Janssen+COVID-19+Vaccine-HCP-fact-sheet.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0HgvBeOMLuQtyZfkU06qXC-s7eQkb_rotJN7C5fb_tVFmp1KoQkW-MVeo
FACT SHEET FOR HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS ADMINISTERING VACCINE
EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION (EUA) OF
THE JANSSEN COVID-19 VACCINE TO PREVENT CORONAVIRUS
DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an Emergency Use Authorization
(EUA) to permit the emergency use of the unapproved product, Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine, for
active immunization to prevent COVID-19 in individuals 18 years of age and older.
The Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is initially stored frozen by the manufacturer, then shipped at 2°C to 8°C (36°F to 46°F). If vaccine is still frozen upon receipt, thaw at 2°C to 8°C (36°F to 46°F). If
needed immediately, thaw at room temperature (maximally 25°C/77°F). At room temperature (maximally 25°C/77°F), a carton of 10 vials will take approximately 2 hours to thaw, and an
individual vial will take approximately 1 hour to thaw. Do not refreeze once thawed.
(unlike the other “vaccines” this one does not require adding suspension fluids, and comes shipped with full dose vials of 5 doses to a vial)
Do not administer the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine to individuals with a known history of a severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any component of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine (see Full
EUA Prescribing Information).
Severe allergic reactions, including one case of anaphylaxis in an ongoing open-label study in South Africa, have been reported following the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine administered in
. A total of 43,783 individuals were enrolled in this study, of whom 21,895 adults aged 18 years and older received the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine .The safety subset includes 6,736 individuals
Urticaria (all non-serious) was reported in five vaccinated individuals and 1 individual who received placebo in the 7 days following vaccination.
(What is urticaria?
Urticaria is also called hives. Hives can change size and shape, and appear anywhere on your skin. They can be mild or severe and last from a few minutes to a few days. Hives may be a sign of a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis that needs immediate treatment. Urticaria that lasts longer than 6 weeks may be a chronic condition that needs long-term treatment.)
In addition, an SAE of hypersensitivity, not
classified as anaphylaxis, was reported in 1 vaccinated individual with urticaria beginning two days following vaccination and angioedema of the lips with no respiratory distress beginning
four days following vaccination. The event was likely related to the vaccine.
• Thromboembolic events:
• Deep vein thrombosis: 6 events (2 serious; 5 within 28 days of vaccination) vs.
2 events (1 serious; 2 within 28 days of vaccination).
• Pulmonary embolism: 4 events (3 serious; 2 within 28 days of vaccination) vs. 1 event
(serious and within 28 days of vaccination).
• Transverse sinus thrombosis: 1 event (serious and within 28 days of vaccination) vs.
• Seizures: 4 events (1 serious; 4 within 28 days of vaccination) vs. 1 event (0 serious and
0 within 28 days following vaccination).
• Tinnitus: 6 events (0 serious; 6 within 28 days of vaccination, including 3 within 2 days of
vaccination) vs. 0.
(these dont sound too serious compared to the numbers of 21k injections, though the tinitus is a strange one. and these appear at first glance to be less than the other “vaccines”)
(this is the important part, what is actually in the vaccine)
The Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is a colorless to slightly yellow, clear to very opalescent sterile suspension for intramuscular injection. It contains no visible particulates. The vaccine consists of
a replication-incompetent recombinant adenovirus type 26 (Ad26) vector expressing the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) spike (S) protein in a stabilized
(This vaccine called Ad26.COV2.S uses some genetic material from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. More precisely, it uses the genetic code to make the spike protein, the protrusions that can be seen on the surface of the virus. The spike protein is used by many vaccines since this is what the virus uses to bind with human cells and initiate infection.)
(Adenoviruses are common viruses that cause a range of illness. They can cause cold-like symptoms, fever, sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, and pink eye (conjunctivitis).)
The Ad26 vector expressing the SARS-CoV-2 S protein is grown in PER.C6 TetR cells
(The PER.C6 cell line is derived from human embryonic retinal cells, originally from the retinal tissue of an 18 week old fetus aborted in 1985, PER.C6 cells grow well in suspension serum-free culture that is free of any animal-derived protein)(note from the readings I have done, no further children were killed after the initial cell line was cultured. I could be wrong but that is what I saw)
, in media containing amino acids and no animal-derived proteins. After propagation, the vaccine is
processed through several purification steps, formulated with inactive ingredients and filled into vials.
Each 0.5 mL dose of Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is formulated to contain 5×1010 virus particles (VP) and the following inactive ingredients: citric acid monohydrate (0.14 mg), trisodium citrate
dihydrate (2.02 mg), ethanol (2.04 mg), 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HBCD) (25.50 mg), polysorbate-80 (0.16 mg), sodium chloride (2.19 mg). Each dose may also contain residual
amounts of host cell proteins (≤0.15 mcg) and/or host cell DNA (≤3 ng).(emp. added)
Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine does not contain a preservative.
The Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is composed of a recombinant, replication-incompetent human adenovirus type 26 vector (not an mRnA but an inactive virus)that, after entering human cells, expresses the SARS-CoV-2 spike (S)
antigen without virus propagation. An immune response elicited to the S antigen protects against
The median length of follow up for efficacy for individuals in the study was 8 weeks postvaccination. Vaccine efficacy for the co-primary endpoints against moderate to severe/critical
COVID-19 in individuals who were seronegative or who had an unknown serostatus at baseline
was 66.9% (95% CI: 59.0; 73.4) at least 14 days after vaccination and 66.1% (95% CI: 55.0; 74.8)
at least 28 days after vaccination (see Table 6).
(looking at the tables and stuff, it appears to be effective on the known variants of covid)
The EUA follows a unanimous vote by the U.S. FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) on February 26, 2021.
(as compared to the pfizer which had 4 members not recommending it)
I found the following-from
Johnson & Johnson is committed to making its COVID-19 vaccine candidate available on a not-for-profit basis(eph added) for emergency pandemic use. The Company is prepared to supply its vaccine immediately upon EUA and expects to deliver enough single-dose vaccine candidate by the end of March to enable the full vaccination of more than 20 million people in the U.S. The Company plans to deliver 100 million single-dose vaccines to the U.S. during the first half of 2021.
Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 Vaccine Candidate
The Company’s Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine leverages the AdVac® vaccine platform, a unique and proprietary technology that was also used to develop and manufacture Janssen’s European Commission-approved Ebola vaccine regimen and construct its investigational Zika, RSV, and HIV vaccines.
Phase 3 ENSEMBLE Study Design
The Phase 3 ENSEMBLE study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in individuals 18 years of age and older. The study was designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Company’s vaccine candidate in protecting against both moderate and severe COVID-19 disease, with assessment of efficacy as of day 14 and as of day 28 as co-primary endpoints. The study enrolled a total of 43,783 participants.
The trial, conducted in eight countries across three continents, includes a diverse and broad population, including 34% of participants over age 60.
The study enrolled 44% of participants in the United States. Seventy-four percent of participants in the U.S. are White/Caucasian; 15% are Hispanic and/or Latinx; 13% are Black/African American; 6% are Asian and 1% are Native American.
Forty-one percent of participants in the study had comorbidities associated with an increased risk for progression to severe COVID-19.
Research and development activities for the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine candidate, including the ENSEMBLE clinical trial and the delivery of doses for the U.S., have been funded with federal funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), under Contract No. HHSO100201700018C, and in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
(iow: this vaccine was fully funded already and will not cost anything)
In light of the Problem created by Mr Obama during his presidency on the Immigration Of unlawful children by their parents, I have a proposal for a bill to help the situation.
I have run this by a Facebook forum or 2 and while the general attitude was we don’t care send them all back, I have not received any negative comments on the proposal itself.
Proposal; on Daca: Since Daca stands for deferred action for child arrivals, and the program is ending, And former President Obama has created a legal nightmare with this program, I propose the following solution to be voted on by congress.
The DACA children are given 1 year after their 18th birthday to apply to the INS for a limited citizenship(non-voting).
If the alien is older than 18 at the time of this bill they have 1 year to apply to the INS for a limited citizenship(non-voting). .
Any alien that does not apply will be deported.
If that alien has served in the military for a minimum of 2 years they will be granted full citizenship upon approval of the INS. (they have proven that they do care for this country by offering up their lives)
The Only people that are eligible are those that have/had signed up for the DACA program before March of 2018.
There will be no chain migration allowed.
The parents are not eligible for this program and are subject to deportation.
I had a thought.(rut roh).
What if, just what if, Mr trump is in the vain of JFK? (best willis voice, what you talkin about?) well, what if after all these years of the administrations doing things a “certain way” in the area of foreign policy that has not really been working, Mr Trump has gone a different way that will work better?
Think about it, during the whole cuba crisis thing, everyone were against the way JFK was doing things because they didn’t understand what he was trying to do. Now during all these problems that the standard routines just weren’t working Mr Trump has got an idea that doing it in a different way will make it work? Is he not sending messages to our enemies? (that he can back up). are they not responding in ways that are different? the standard way of sanctioning and all that are just not working. So the missile boy says hes got a button, after the limited testing he has done while puffing his chest out, Mr Trump comes along and says yea well I’ve got one too, but mine works to put the little boy in his place.
Should we just let Trump be Trump? And see if Mr Trump is smarter than everyone thinks? what if?
Sir while watching the hearing With the Sec DHS you embarrassed the great state of New Jersey with your conduct. While you did show your party affiliation and your siding with Sen Durban, You have embarrassed the state in your diatribe.
@senbooker you were not at all satisfied with the Secretaries answers and called her a bold faced lyer all over something the President may or may not have said. This whole issue of that word has been over stretched and worn out. It is not worth your time and feigned outrage. You were in a hearing that dealt with a broad number of matters and you decided to waste your time on an issue that was asked and answered numerous times in that very hearing. I would suggest next time your efforts would be better spent on matters that actually matter.
If you are going to represent this great state, PLEASE represent it in the decorum that you would demand of any other senator. You sir are an embarrassment to this state.

@nj1015 @potus @app @DHS @foxnews
one or 2 things i took from the SOTU last night-
ok so the dems didn’t stand or applaud, so what. the repubs did that too for obama. no problem.
the problem came when they showed their total disrespect and disdaine for the President by using their phones to text or facebook or whatever it was they were doing. what a way to teach our young.
their booing when the President mentioned immigration and enforcement of immigration law. ok we had that one guy that yelled out you lie. but the booing from the whole of the dems on law enforcement? Pelosi, well what can we say about her that hasn’t been said. Members just plain walking out? come on you don’t do that.
now my takes from the dem response that I got to listen too this am. You must realize that this response was created probably over the weekend (how can you be at the SOTU and be in Mass 1 minute later?)
from the dem response sen kennedy –
stocks and company soar, but fails to reward he worker.
(they forgot all the companies giving back to the workers in bonus’s and higher wages due to the tax reforms)
a government that struggles to keep itself open
(they forgot to mention it was the dems that refused since september to allow passage of a budget and even fought the CR’s)
russia knee deep in out democracy
(aren’t we still waiting on several investigations on this?)
all out war on environmental protection
(some regulations that didn’t make sense other than to cost a company more money)
justice department rolling back civil rights
(Justice department actually holding to the constitution)
dignity isn’t something your born with, but is measured by your net worth
(sure this coming from a guy that is worth ????)
take care of sick kids if we sacrifice dreamers
(here we go defending illegal aliens)
says the repubs only want 1 or the other splitting the nation coaast or heartland
ceos making 300 x the worker is not right
(so a guy that runs a company is not entitled to more than his workers? typical socialist thinking where everyone makes the same)
state of union is hopefull
(hopefull they can get back in power to ruin the country and steal as much as they can)
The 2nd amendment was not meant for hunters, it had 3 purposes.
#1 to protect your family from attack
#2 to Protect your state from external attack
#3 to protect your state from internal attack
that’s it, plain and simple. now to protect yourself and your sate you require weaponry at least equal to the attacker. No owning an AR-15 is not usually for hunting, it is for the 3 reasons above. You have to remember, when the state takes great pains to take away your right to defend yourself, the state will eventually become a police state.
The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This gun grab goes on every time some sick individual goes off the reservation. The Dems had their time that they could have enacted all kinds of gun control laws and they didn’t. Now if there is something that is common sense, that would actually do something, that is already not in the laws, I am all ears. Banning and denying are not the answer right now. If they make a law in haste that is based on the moment we are all sure to be worse off then if nothing was done. Sit, think , pray, discuss, and then make sure it is right and not against the constitution, and you may get it right.
Yes I rode the short bus, no I wasn’t a window licker. I had issues that my parents struggled to help me with, and they did. Yes I was one of those that had trouble making friends, and no I never had a girlfriend in school. Luckily I never had to be on any medications or have to go thru massive psychotherapy. I was able to go to a special school that helped me learn how to learn. in all this I was lucky to have my parents backing as well as a few kids from the neighborhood to play with.All this is so you can understand my background so I can bring you thru the next part of my monologue.
Let’s look at these kids one part at a time. They were for a lack of a better term, ?autistic? (mildly?). this leads to problems in the way they look at the world and the world looks at them. They are slower on the uptake if it is not given to them in the best way they process the information. (some need it visually , some in text, some need to hear it.) so this makes the world a little different for them than for you.
Because they have this issue, parents and doctors look for the easy way to help their kid cope with society. This typically involves some sort of pharmaceutical help. These drugs can actually make it worse for the kid to be “normal”, but it makes them easier to manage.
Then because the kid is different from the norm, he will get picked on by his classmates, and ostracized, and made to feel small. this all creates a smoldering anger that the kid thinks I’ll get them for being mean, they will learn. that anger will build over the years and will never be shown to the world.
Now add in what we have today, the internet. the internet while it can open up a brave new world to this kid, also makes it much easier to be bullied and influenced. It can also make this kid more withdrawn into this cyberworld with the games and stuff. They will “make friends” in this brave new world but still be alone. then they go back to the real world and go thru all the emotions again. so they hide, ball up , in an attempt to block the hate. or they will strike out in anger (fights in school, animal abuse). All this because no one hears them and they have no one to talk to.
what can be done? this is going to sound so left leaning it is not funny, but believe me it really isn’t, All it takes is some kid to simply include them in their circle and talk to them. I have heard that in the last shooting the trigger point was something about his ex girlfriend dating someone. ok, in normal’s lives when that happens you talk with you best friend and they blow off the girl as not being good enough for you and all that stuff. In his case who did he have to talk to? No I don’t think for the next 10 years or so it can change, as the age that anything meaningful and actually easy is not 14 or 15 years old. this has to start before the teen years.
How many stories have we heard that someone was contiplating suicide and it was someone that simply said hi to them or helped them with their books or something simple, and they decided not to kill themselves? yes it is that simple and yet that complex. If you want to stop these school shootings think not about taking away guns which are only a tool for the symptoms, much in the way taking pain killers for a bad tooth only masks the pain. But think about this, The guy that seems a little odd of slow, he may not be able to handle the world like you do, but if you stop and say hi or give them a hand, you could change his world or even help him to understand it better. and with that small change, you will have stopped the anger and the resulting problems. If you haven’t helped your hurting, it all starts with you.
So to finnish off this diatribe that no one will read, may god be with you, and , well, Hey how ya doing?
A post script note: after getting some reaction from some on this post,
No we are not asking for everyone to be fake nice. that wont help. what we are asking is for 1 kid to say hi, 1 kid to be nice, 1 kid listen to them, 1 kid to learn from them. 1 kid to NOT bully, 1 kid to NOT talk behind their back. 1 kid to include them where possible. 1 kid to help them. 2 parents to back them, 2 parents to show them the way. It doesnt take that much. It doesnt take the whole of the school or community. just 1 brave kid and 2 parents.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Today we watch Mr. Trump in yet another meeting with lawmakers at capital . they were discussing ways tostop the next school shooter . there was a a bunch of ideas discussed a lot of good ideas , and then while they were discussing the Baker act , which is await to put someone that is not psychologically stable into the hospital for 72 hours with or without their permission , president Trump said something that is bothering a lot of us . he said that if a person is Baker acted they should st take their weapons and worry about justice later .
Now since we know that a person is going to do a school shooting is not in their right mind, once the person is Baker acted , law enforcement would go before a judge in an ex parte and provide compelling evidence either by the shooter’s writings showing that he will commit this act , or a doctors note staining the person is a danger to themselves or others . At that point the judge would then sign a warrant for the temporary seizure of his firearms until a full hearing can be held as to if that person can get the weapons back. As judges are on call for search warrents this should not be a big deal to be done with in the 72 hour period.
This is about the only way that this could be done legaly in my opinion. If this procedure is not in the bill it should be thrown out.
