FLASHBACK: Lightning DESTROYS George Floyd mural in Ohio

This comes as new reports say "no medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation" were found in George Floyd's death.


Correction: This article incorrectly stated that the county medical examiner's autopsy report was a recent revelation. In fact, it was publicly released in June 2020. The Post Millennial regrets the error.

It was a bit over two years ago when a lightning bolt reportedly struck a George Floyd mural that was erected in Ohio, ultimately causing the structure to collapse.

The structure in north Toledo was reduced to rumble in July 2021 after it was struck on a Tuesday night, WTOL 11 reported at the time.

The mural had been painted by artist David Ross just about a year prior in July 2020. The city of Toledo said at the time that it plans to create a new mural, and will find a new place to feature it.

Now, it has recently been revealed that a county medical examiner who looked over the corpse of Floyd after he had died while under police custody stated that there were "no medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation,” in relation to Floyd. 

Numerous employees of the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, including a prosecutor in the George Floyd case, backed out after saying the pressure to charge the other three officers who were with Derek Chauvin on the day Floyd passed away "violated professional and ethical rules," per Alpha News.

The attorney for former Minneapolis police officers, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng, wrote that "On May 20, 2022, a complaint went public relating to The Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman harassing and retaliating against prosecuting attorney Amy Sweasy — after she disagreed for wanting to charge Mr. Thao, Mr. Lane, and Mr. Kueng for their involvement," according to the outlet.

Meanwhile, Sweasy said during a court deposition that upon performing an autopsy on Floyd the day after he had died, Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker determined that "there were no medical findings that showed any injury to the vital structures of Mr. Floyd’s neck. There were no medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation."

Sweasy said that Baker went on to ask, "‘Amy, what happens when the actual evidence doesn’t match up with the public narrative that everyone’s already decided on?’"

"This is the kind of case that ends careers."

That is just too funny.


Looks like God has a sense of humor...and justice.
