Cancel Culture and the Woke mob strike again…..
This time inside of our courts and the medical institution. People can think whatever they will of the case, that’s completely fair, but we cannot start impounding witnesses that we don’t like.
Dr.Fowler came to a different medical conclusion than the other doctors…..that happens all the time in medicine as a field.
Ever get a second opinion on something from a doctor?
Happens literally all of the time. Doctors regularly differ in opinions and conclusions.
You can agree with the opinion, disagree with it, completely disregard it, or view it as neutral, but auditing records like this? Come on now……
Here is more on the story:
Maryland officials will conduct an independent review of reports of deaths in police custody during the tenure of retired chief medical examiner Dr. David Fowler, representatives from the offices of the governor and attorney general confirmed to NPR on Saturday.
Fowler served as Maryland's chief medical examiner from 2002 to 2019. He was in the spotlight as a defense witness in the trial of former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted on murder and manslaughter charges this week in the death of George Floyd.
Fowler testified that he believed Floyd had died of a sudden cardiac event due to his underlying heart disease while being restrained by police, citing multiple possible contributing factors such as drugs in his system and potential exposure to carbon monoxide from vehicle exhaust. While the Hennepin County medical examiner concluded that Floyd's death was a homicide, Fowler argued the manner of death should be classified as "undetermined."
Fox News reported:
"Dr. Fowler's stated opinion that George Floyd's death during active police restraint should be certified with an 'undetermined' manner is outside the standard practice and conventions for investigating and certification of in-custody deaths," the letter said. "This stated opinion raises significant concerns for his previous practice and management."
The letter called for probes at the state and federal level into Fowler’s medical license as well as a review into the Maryland Office of the Chief Medical Examiner during Fowler's 17-year tenure.
Raquel Coombs, a spokeswoman for Frosh, said the office had been having internal discussions for weeks about launching an investigation into in-custody death reports conducted during Fowler's tenure and contacted the governor's office about how to proceed, the Washington Post reported.
"We agree that it is appropriate for independent experts to review reports issued by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) regarding deaths in custody," Coombs said in a statement. "We are already in conversations with the Governor's Office about the need for such a review, and have offered to coordinate it."
