A Great Cloud of Witnesses: A Meditation on the Chauvin Verdict

The press release told the story: There was a suspect “under the influence.” Two officers arrive and order the suspect in his 40s to get out of his car. The suspect was handcuffed and appeared to be suffering medical distress. An ambulance was called. He was taken to a local hospital where he died a short time later.

This was the press release the Minneapolis Police Department sent out on May 25, 2020 in regards to an incident at the corner of Chicago Avenue and 38th Street. We know that story as the police encounter where George Floyd died. However, the press release tells the story somewhat differently
