As the country is rocked by the death of Mr. George Floyd and the resulting civil disorder, Dave hears from two people with crucial front row seats. First, Ricochet Co-Founder Rob Long calls in from New York City to share what he’s seen downtown and what he sees in the country at large. Then, Ricochet Member Duke Powell calls in from Minneapolis to talk about what happened to George Floyd. Mr. Powell has 36 years of EMS experience, and he retired from the same agency that responded to Mr. Floyd on that awful day. Mr. Powell shares with Dave what protocols should have been followed and where he believes events took a fatal turn.

Finally, if you’re listening to Dave’s show, but you’re not a Ricochet member, there is a way you can get a 30 day free trial membership . Tune in to learn more!

    Rob, don’t worry about the dark humor.

    The interview with Mr. Powell was very informative. It’s interesting to know that Minneapolis PD were training on the whole positional asphyxiation thing.

    Dave: I just noticed. You could make your picture more like Drew Klavan. A slight change of hand position and a shave and you will be there. 😉

    Ya know, I saw his podcast next to mine on the Main Feed a little earlier and I thought the same thing! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery though, correct?

    Enjoyed both interviews Dave. I had read Duke’s post but this really helped to flesh out the information. Thanks so much.
