Speaking only for myself, I did watch an awful lot of the Chauvin trial on C-SPAN. Interestingly enough, as cited by AP News via US News & World Report, defense attorney Eric Nelson made sure that experts testified on Chauvin’s use of force (emphasis mine);
Chauvin attorney Eric Nelson called a police use-of-force expert and a forensic pathologist to help make the case that Chauvin acted reasonably against a struggling suspect and that Floyd died because of an underlying heart condition and his illegal drug use.
While watching the Chauvin Trial today, I was somewhat perplexed as to why Sgt Jody Stiger of the Los Angeles Police Department was called as a witness for the District Attorney’s Office prosecuting former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
When questioning Minneapolis Chief of Police Medaria Arradondo during the course of ex-Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial, defense attorney Eric Nelson showed side-by-side video today that very well could find Chauvin not guilty in the Floyd murder trial.
