"[Chauvin] pulled Mr. Floyd out of the passenger side of the squad car at 8:19:38 pm and he went to the ground face down and still handcuffed. Kueng held Mr. Floyd's back and Lane held his legs. [Chauvin] placed his left knee in the area of Mr. Floyd's head and neck."-Complaint
"Mr. Floyd said "I can't breathe" multiple times and repeatedly said "Mama" and "please" as well. The defendant and the others stayed in their positions." The officers said "you are talking fine" to Mr. Floyd as he moved back and forth. Lane said "Should we roll him on his side?"
"And [Chauvin] said "No, staying put where we got him." Lane said "I'm worried about excited delirium." [Chauvin] said "That's why we have him on his stomach." BWC camera shows that Mr. Floyd continued to move and breathe. At 8:24:24 Mr. Floyd stopped moving."
"At 8:25:31, the video appears to show Mr. Floyd ceasing to breathe or speak. Lane said "I want him on his side." Kueng checked Mr. Floyd's right wrist for a pulse and said "I couldn't find one." None of the officers moved from their positions."
"At 8:27:24, the defendant removed his knee from Mr. Floyd's neck. An ambulance and emergency personnel arrived, the ambulance left the scene and Mr. Floyd was pronounced dead at Hennepin County Medical Center."--Complaint, State of Minnesota vs Derek Michael Chauvin May 29 2020

@EricTopol @ScottGottliebMD "The [Massachusetts] study was quickly picked up by 3-feet spacing advocates. But...confidence intervals were so large in the analysis that 6 feet of distancing could have decreased case rates as much as 47 percent compared with 3 feet..."--Beth Mole, Ars Technica Mar 19
@EricTopol @ScottGottliebMD Research indicating that aerosols rather than droplets are at play with COVID-19 would tend to suggest neither 3 ft nor 6 ft distancing is adequate to protect kids in school. CDC shouldn't be jumping all over a study they claim shows not much difference in their rush to reopen.
@EricTopol @ScottGottliebMD "Districts that permitted a minimum of > or = 3 ft, even if greater distances were preferred were classified as allowing > or = 3 ft of distancing between students."- Massachusetts study
This means there are districts that "preferred" greater distances lumped into 3 ft results.
