Chauvin Medical Defense Witness Is Now Being Investigated for Wrong-Think

Chauvin Medical Defense Witness Is Now Being Investigated for Wrong-Think. By Victoria Taft.

One defense witness already had the bloody head of a pig left on what intimidators thought was his front porch in punishment for testifying on behalf of Derek Chauvin.

Now, state-sponsored intimidators are targeting another defense witness in the trial of the police officer accused of killing George Floyd in Minneapolis in 2020. His offense? Wrong-think.

Dr. David Fowler, the former Maryland medical examiner and forensic pathologist, testified for defendant Derek Chauvin on day 13 of the trial that the former cop’s actions weren’t solely responsible for George Floyd’s death. And because of this opinion, Maryland will now investigate 17 years of his findings in state cases …

Fowler testified that George Floyd died because he “had a sudden cardiac arrhythmia due to atherosclerotic and hypertensive heart disease, during his restraint by the police” … Evidence presented at trial and acknowledged by both sides showed that Floyd suffered from an enlarged heart, 90% and 75% occlusions in his arteries going into and out of his heart, years of drug abuse and anxiety, skyrocketing blood pressure, had ingested an opioid and meth cocktail, smoked for years, was right by the police cruiser exhaust, and struggled for ten minutes against three cops, which necessitated the knee hold on Floyd in the prone position.

Prosecutors put on witnesses that said none of that had anything to do with his death, blaming the entire incident on Chauvin’s hold. The jury believed it too, quickly delivering a guilty verdict on all charges.

And now, because Fowler was on the “wrong” side of the case, his reputation must die.

Washington, D.C.’s former chief medical examiner and a group of 431 doctors from around the country sent a letter to Maryland’s attorney general and governor claiming that Fowler’s testimony was outside the bounds of normal medical opinion and that his previous conclusions on Maryland cases should be re-considered. … But these doctors have the endgame in mind. They don’t just want the investigation, they want to make sure Dr. Fowler never works again. …

It isn’t much of a surprise that 400-plus doctors came out of the ether to weigh in on the case they’ve personally never examined. Most, if not all, attorneys, medical experts, and support personnel for the case against Derek Chauvin came out of the ether to volunteer on the Chauvin trial. Many worked hundreds or thousands of hours for free.

Interested parties might want to start at why professionals put aside reason to trumpet a media narrative against Chauvin and did it for free.

Powered by the warm inner glow of doing God’s work for the new religion. Non-believers must be punished and banished.

I’d wager this is less about punishing Fowler than it is about pre-intimidating future expert witnesses in “politically sensitive” trials.
