Today certain “qualified” talking heads in the media have copied the unfounded and rather illogical theory that is used in every police custody restraint death case as a defense. There is a medically noted condition that has been seen in emergency rooms which is associated with severe agitation, sweating, cardiac arythmias, drug use (in some cases), psychological disturbances and sudden death. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3088378/
It is called a “syndrome.” That’s medical talk for a multiple series of symptoms that are considered to characterize a disease. They occur together, but they might not always have a definite cause. A well known forensic pathologist, probably 30 years ago, began to label police custody deaths associated with physical restraint used to subdue an uncooperative detainee as this syndrome. The MN death of Mr. Floyd is wrongly being explained as such, which all adds to the PR of the police defense against their current charges. We are witnessing a forensic mis-diagnosis when you hear its use in the media.
George Floyd showed none of these symptoms. This symptom-less mechanism of death only happens when police are present.
