    In 2009, George Floyd was arrested for a 1st-degree felony charge, as per police criminal records/history/past, of assault and armed robbery he took part in 2007 and spent five years in prison for breaking into a lady’s house with the intent to rob her. George agreed that he wore a blue uniform to look like a government employee to gain the lady’s trust, and eventually pave his way into the house.

    The lady soon realized that the person was impersonating to be a government worker, she tried to shut the door but Floyd brute-forced his way into the house. Consequently, a Ford truck pulled up to the house’s main entrance, five people exited the truck and went straight inside the lady’s house.

    According to Daily Mail (UK), the court report mentions that the victim identified George as the criminal, tallest of all the robbers, who pressed a pistol to her stomach and forced his way into the house. George Floyd’s height was 6 foot 6 inches.

    ‘This large suspect then proceeded to search the residence while another armed suspect guarded the complainant, who was struck in the head and sides by this second armed suspect with his pistol while she screamed for help.’

    Not finding any cash, Floyd and other men took jewelry and the lady’s cellphone and fled the scene using the truck. A neighbor had witnessed the robbery attempt, wrote down the license plate number, and reported the incident to 911 instantly.

    The police followed the lead and successfully tracked down the car. Floyd was found behind the wheels. Later, his identity was cross-verified with the women who reported that a tall suspect had placed a gun to her abdomen and invaded her home forcefully.

    Did George Floyd Have Drugs In His System During Autopsy? What is Fentanyl?

    Fentanyl is a DEA Schedule II synthetic morphine substitute anesthetic/analgesic. It is reported to be 80 to 200 times as potent as morphine and has a rapid onset of action as well as addictive properties. It is prescribed to patients who become intolerant to other pain-curing medications.

    Hennepin County medical examiners released the toxicology report on June 2nd, 2020 which stated that George Floyd was indeed intoxicated with Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, and traces of cannabinoids and morphine at the time of his death. However, these were not termed the principal factors behind Floyd’s death. Floyd has an extensive criminal past related to the drug trade and use.

    George Floyd Baggie: Cocaine Arrests Record

    George Floyd’s criminal record includes 5 convictions related to theft, possession, and trade of coke. Floyd was arrested five times in 20 years, his last cocaine arrest dates back in 2005.

    George was also linked to two convictions in the 1990s for possession and theft of a controlled substance (cocaine). However, it is not clear whether or not Floyd served his time in prison for this felony.

    George was accused of a firearm robbery in August 1998 for which he served 10 months at Harris County Jail. In April 2002, Floyd was condemned to 30 days of prison for trespassing private property.

    George Floyd was involved in two more cocaine offenses, in October 2002 and in 2004, for which he did eight-months and ten-months sentence in prison respectively.

    Another cocaine possession conviction in Dec 2005, Floyd was arrested for having cocaine on him and served 10 months in state jail.

    After a few months, Floyd’s charge was upgraded, amending the cocaine amount he possessed to be about 4 grams.

    However, according to the records, the alleged charge was lifted because Floyd convinced the jury that he had less than 1 gram of cocaine.

    If he passed a counterfeit bill, why was he hanging around the store? Wouldn't he take off? It's a non violent crime. Why is the officer pulling a gun on three people in a car for that? We don't know that he did anything.

    That's uncertain, what is 100% certain is that Justine Diamond did not commit any crime but she was still shot and killed by Mohamed Noor.

    We don't know.  Police were called because a store owner said that Floyd had tried to pass a counterfeit bill.  But the store owner told the media that he wasn't even sure that Floyd knew that the bill was counterfeit.  He may have received it somewhere himself and simply passed it on.

    There's a justice system to sort that out. He didn't live to face it. The cop was judge, jury and executioner. But, no one can stop you f/ your opinion. You're entitled to whatever you think. I'm shocked you were compelled to ask.

    He tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill.

    The videos of the incident suggest that they've been edited. There's a short amount of time unaccounted for - the moment when the store video stopped and just before the cop is seen with his knee of the suspect's neck.

    At the very end of the store video, it shows Floyd doing a deadfall. A deadfall is when a person goes completely limp to avoid (in this case) being put in the back of the police cruiser.

    It's a willful lack of compliance and therefore constitutes 'resisting arrest'. And since it is being claimed (and pointed out in the videos - ignoring the last seconds of the store video) that he was not resisting arrest, this moment of truth caught at the end of the store video proves otherwise.

    This is where the "missing" footage is relevant. It's very "convenient" that the store video ends abruptly when it should have been able to record more details. Then suddenly, a personal video is able to capture just the part where the cop has his knee on the suspect's neck - nothing leading up to that moment.

    There's every possibility that Floyd struggled and resisted and that's the reason the officer was using so much force to subdue him.

    Of course, with today's war on law enforcement and the sympathy being generated for the criminal, the entire set of facts may never be known.

    Since he had not been charged and has now lost out on the opportunity for a fair trial before a jury of his peers, that will never be known. At the time of his murder he was innocent of any crime.

    Probably.  But it was far, far smaller crimes than Trump has committed.
