Take a look at that picture. Look familiar?
According Minneapolis Police Department training manual, officers are shown how to subdue violent or resisting suspects by placing their knee on the neck.

So Chauvin's defense is going to be that he was going by the book.

Plus the fact the Floyd had fatal doses of fetanyl in his system.

Two questions/ Statements

I did not see Floyd being put in a recovery position, at least when discussing first aid?

When was the EMS called?

Sounds like MPD trained officers to kill handcuffed suspects.

Going by the book would have been to put him in the recovery position, but he was never rolled onto his side. Instead, Chauvin continued to keep his knee on Floyd's neck beyond what was necessary to get him restrained. Notice the part about positional asphyxia? That was what Chauvin caused through his actions.

EDIT: Ah, you got this from an article. You should have linked that article in your OP. Here is the issue: the article appears to get "the recovery position" wrong. The picture on the pamphlet shows the restraining process. Medical instructions show "the recovery position" as someone rolled onto his or her side.

The article you should have linked:
Chauvin, Lane, Kueng, and Thao: the George Floyd Fall Guys - LewRockwell
