    The report noted that the combined effects of Floyd “being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death”.

    The Washington Times reported that Floyd died on Monday from preexisting health conditions exacerbated by drug use while being held down by Minneapolis officers, and not from strangulation or asphyxiation as is being alleged by rioters.

    Based on the medical examiner’s initial report from a Tuesday preliminary autopsy conducted by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner there were “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxiation or strangulation”.

    A criminal complaint was filed against former officer Derek Michael Chauvin who had arrested Floyd.

    “Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease,” said the complaint from the Hennepin County Attorney. “The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.”

    Social unrest coupled with violence continued across major US cities on Friday evening. From Washington, DC to New York City to Atlanta to Ohio to Los Angeles to San Jose, tens of thousands of African-Americans supported by Antifa gathered in the streets.

    The White House meanwhile arrived at a “general consensus” on Friday that no further riots should be stopped by law enforcement “because it would hurt their chances at coalition building with minority communities ahead of the election,” Ryan James Girdusky reported.

    “If anyone’s expecting to see an LA riot type of response from the federal government. They’re going to be disappointed. A lot of conversation went into all the work they’ve put in to reach out to the black community (on average, Trump’s polling 8 percent with them),” Girdusky added.

    Looting and calls to attack whites continued in several American cities.

    Even “the most liberal, well-intentioned white person” has a “virus” called “racism” in their brain, CNN commentator Van Jones told his television audience on Friday. His anti-white statements were apparently not heeded by a large mob that had stormed the CNN building in Atlanta, Georgia.

    In a partial transcript of Jones’s speech, he said: “It’s not the racist white person who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about. It’s the white liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell you right now, you know, people like that, ‘I don’t see race, race is no big deal to me, I see us all as the same, I give to charities,’ but the minute she sees a black man who she does not respect or who she has a slight thought against, she weaponized race like she had been trained by the Aryan nation. A Klans member could not have been better trained to pick up her phone and tell the police a black man, African-American man, come get him.”

    Very few African-American rioters bothered about adhering to anti-Corona measures. In Minneapolis, where the riots had erupted, the municipal government said it had provided hundreds of masks to the public for the purpose of reducing transmission of the virus.

    The Democrat mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey asked that “protesters” practice social distancing and wear masks. Although his social distancing calls were mostly ignored, many looters could be seen wearing masks in a bid to hide their faces. Frey himself wore a mask for his Twitter profile photo, as he framed Lloyd’s death as a racial war.

    “The City encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” the statement reads. “The City has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week.”

    The Treasury Department in Washington DC was also attacked by rioters, who vandalised the building. According to CNN, some of the protesters were stopped by US Secret Service but they were eventually released.
