Vin and the other former officers involved in George Floyd's burger Cities and school districts have responded to Minneapolis public schools, joined districts across the country and cutting ties with police. And Minneapolis City Council members made headlines when they promised to defund the police. That's provocative shorthand for rerouting public safety dollars to social services that can reduce crime.

Well, I guess Anjo like many people, when I first saw that bystander video Usually there is a situation between a police officer and somebody there's a officer makes a split second decision where they fire a weapon. It's over in a second, but this happened Over nine minutes. We heard George Floyd pleading for his life, and we saw the reaction of the officer Derrick Show Vin, just not changing his expression, and he kept the pressure on. So I think that's when I knew as a boy, You know, it's gonna be really hard for this just to be pushed under the rug or just kind of forgotten about. During the next news cycle. And Brant the response from city officials that was swift as as well different than than what we've seen in the past, starting with the quick firing of officer direct Children. Right that that was different. I mean, usually there's got to be an investigation or there has to be due diligence done here before we make any disciplinary decisions. But this was the next day chief Mid Air. Arredondo came right out and said that this officer is no longer A member of the Minneapolis Police Department, and he fired the other three officers involved as well.

"I wanted to talk to you about the fall out from the Derrick Show Vin verdict the trial and whether will change anything on our country's we've seen in the last week. Quite often. It's our politicians that make the cases of police shootings worse by weighing in before we have all the facts. We saw that several times just in the last few days. It seems like one of the big topics of discussion on Capitol Hill. Now is police reform. They've seemed to agree on a lot of things, except for qualified immunity. That seems to be one of the big issues of contention. Correct me if I'm wrong? This is basically the idea that you cannot sue a a government employee who does something in the service of their job, correct. Correct Split second decision Should that cop be sued personally, You could still go after the city, which they're doing. $27 million later. You know, they paid out for the flood shooting. But what about the cop individually? Easier in show Vin, But the bigger picture is in other split second decisions. Should cop find themselves part of a civil lawsuit. Personally, That's the issue. You've been on both sides of the legal spectrum. You were a prosecutor now your criminal defense attorney. How does this affect these types of cases where Ah policeman is involved in an injury to someone or or their death? Yeah, well, for sure you're going to have yet another adverse reaction by law enforcement rightfully so where they now know that they're going to be wrapped up in a civil lawsuit. Where since 1967 when the Supreme Court said all right, there's qualified immunity. You guys there, Okay, You're not going to be prosecuted. Now that changes of assuming the politicians have their way, and I don't like that. I don't like that that cops are going to, you know, probably be running away from the departments that they serve. On the other hand, shouldn't there be accountability? I mean, I see both sides and I don't see a clear cut passed to saying this is how I feel about it. I would make it impossible for them to do their jobs, wouldn't it if they're worried about being sued all the time? Impossible. I think that they should be concerned about adverse consequences before they pull the trigger before they, you know, put someone in a chokehold. I think that that that's okay. I think that they're aware of that. The question is, should they be sued Civilly and Uh, you know what I'm struggling. I still don't have a clear vision on whether things to change or not. I'm still open one of the things that Republicans Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina's proposing is that very thing that you could sue the department. You still can sue the officer specifically in his argument is it will force departments. Institute better training practices on their officers and hopes of avoiding those lawsuits in the future. Really? I mean, is that what it takes? The death of certain people that shouldn't have died isn't enough. I mean, look, I I think that if there's room for better Training, Then I think that should be implemented. Now, immediately. No matter what I did want to use our remaining times we can. I've gotta discuss this because it's really troubling me. People are saying that the verdict the showman verdict now stands for some fill in the blank. Everybody's got their ideas to what it stands for, and I'm just thinking on a legal basis. Purely legal, Manny He's never convicted a white cop for doing this to a black person. All the sudden, you've got this one case, and now everybody says things are changing legally..

"Against Derrick Show Vin GT. You know, it's It's This is obviously a big deal. A very big moment in time, and a lot to think about there absolutely is, and I wanted Tohno. I'm curious on. I wanted to ask Krista. This is it likely that we hear from some of these jurors? I assume that it is up to them if they want to speak publicly. But do you suspect will hear how they came to this decision and what moved them? I think that's definitely possible. Under the circumstances of all three guilty verdicts, it would've, I think very likely been the case where if they had found him not guilty or acquitted him entirely, they would Want their identities to be known. Perhaps now with these lyrics and please, they'll be willing to discuss. You know what matter to them? What stood out to them seem not to make sense to them and ultimately how they came to their verdict. It is entirely up to them. Judge Kaylin Hill will likely tell them that that will be their decision on D will leave that to them. Of course, I'm sure there are procedures in place where if they don't wish to have identities Known that they will be protected on bail be allowed to somehow get out of the courthouse without a whole bunch of people. You know, I was wondering if you could respond. Tolo questions about Judge Peter Koval. I mean his comments, telling the jury that they have just gone through heavy duty jury duty. And yet in many high profile cases, the judge himself becomes quite a controversial figure. What's your reaction to How Judge Koval has handed this case. Yes, I think he's sensitive with regard to the jury, for sure. And I and you know, we saw early on. He was getting text messages from retired judges who were telling him that the jurors faces could be seen in the plexiglass quickly changed that. I think that he has struck a balance of letting this trial be public without compromising their identities so as to not make the jury feel intimidated with regard to some of the other calls that he made Um, you know, at some point, it seems that he made calls to the defensively on and other times. It's like there's a culture, the prosecution and I think if he added it all, and he was actually pretty fair to both sides as it went a lot I thought that fatal a lot of full size a fair amount of latitude where in day to day of regular practice tends to be nonsense. Most cases along or sometimes interject. Himself into jury selection will sometimes limit arguments because he wants to keep things moving on get right to the point. I think he gave both sides of their model attitude that he might not otherwise kind. See. Because this was a story and this was a situation that demanded it, But it is required that both sides have an opportunity to say everything they needed to stay for him for, however long that they needed to say it. I mean, we saw that closing argument. Yeah, it appeared He was sentenced in its interrupt Nelson. And that would be more along the lines of what I know Judge Cahill, but I think he gave this case the time and the space in the due process that it deserved. You are listening to Bloomberg Radio. Right now we are doing live coverage of the verdict in the killing of George Floyd. Derrick Show in the former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes last night. Convicted of second degree murder in his eyes, is described as a politically explosive trial. We know that it was 15 days of a trial 45 witnesses less than 11 hours for the jury to deliberate. There were three charges 2nd 3rd degree murder and manslaughter. We were just all talking with our roundtable. A little chilling to hear the guilty verdicts in each of those three charges specifically with me right now is Bloomberg News? Legal? Alice, June Grosso and also the team on sound and sound on Excuse Me, Rick Davis and Jeannie. Shawn's A. No. They're Bloomberg political contributors. And we also have with us too. Right now, Krista Gore sex. She's former public defender, Kirkman managing partner of course Check law. And so, Krista. I guess what I'm thinking is it's not over their sentencing, but there's also an appeal. As a former public defender isn't just a case that you appeal because you can legally or is it that you do it because you think you can win the second time around? How do you see it? While appeals are always hard, right, you know this last success. It's appellate court thing. There is the trial court. And, quite frankly, I prefer to be a trial lawyers and an appellate lawyer in part for that reason, but more so, in part because of what unfolds in the courtroom, But, um well, what I will say here is that There appears to be a number of different things that appeal excusing appear to be appeal worthy. We know that there was a move for a change of venue early on. That was the night when allegations of prosecutorial misconduct. Of Discovery coming in late are coming in on repetitive chunks of the new items kind of buried at the bottom of that settlement that the family reach during jury selection certainly was a significant concern of the defense. Was officers. Thought killed after emerging managed Welcome center little of the trial and the truth, bustard they like they heard about that. We know that Very prominent civil rights leaders and figures like Al Sharpton, you know, have been inspired, and they've been very vocal governor. You've been very vocal about there has been very vocal and certainly the jury had to have heard of all of this valuable and last notable with Representative Maxine Waters of California, came to Minnesota with engagement kind of protest and was very vocal in saying that if there was an acquittal In fact, people should take to the streets and I think it's fair to say all she implied that people should should protest and I didn't hold on perspective. No, that's okay. I know June's gonna come in on this, and I just want to paint a visual. We're looking at shots in Minneapolis outside the courthouse, and you're seeing a lot of people around there. Some people Obviously there's hugs. There's reactions, but it's very calm in terms of reactions to that verdict. Forgive me, Chris. I know you wanted to finish that thought. All I was gonna say is that you know when we've got a public figure again in in Minneapolis, while the jurors are not sequestered in the trialist still pending. Telling people to take to the streets, but there's an acquittal. I mean, I think that is tantamount to potential jury intimidation, and so all of these things like bring them together. Amount to, um Really, I think strong and varied grounds for appeal. We've also got the murder three charge that was reinstated country to once again. The president robot. In this case, there's a lot of grounds. I think for a real a very valid appeal that forward. You talked about Judge Cahill being very fair and reasonable in this trial, And of course we saw it. And if he hadn't been, we would have heard about it. So, But what about us Far? Sentencing is he known as a tough sentencing judge or not? I would say yes known to be a tough sentencing judge, and it certainly isn't afraid to grant Accord departures. Um, I have seen him on the other hand, or he had the opportunity where there was a case for the feet. I have asked for upward. Sentences, and he said No, but he delivered a very harsh, harsh message while agreeing to a little something so You know I've seen on the boat, but I certainly think increased, like said that he will get formal a lot of thought. Theo Cranston Upward departure.

I mean, even outside downtown in the neighborhoods, many, um main businesses on Main streets, same self.

And you are a reporter in Minneapolis who also lives in that city. Do you think The events of this year have changed the way Minneapolis sees itself. E think was a wake up call. Sure, many people, especially white people in Minneapolis, that this long running treatment of African Americans specifically and black people in the twin cities is something that needs to be resolved. And, um, apart from that, I think it did take a hit Minneapolis's reputation or concept of itself as You know, a progressive city that offers people opportunities that has Ah, you know, higher standard of living than many other different states because there are deep seated disparities here across law enforcement across the criminal justice system and across economics, So I do think that it made Minneapolis think differently about itself and where wants to move in the future.

"Of Derrick Show Vin in Minneapolis for the death of George Floyd is expected to go on for weeks. And that means a lot of money going toe lawyers. Children's defense attorney is being paid in full by a legal defense fund specifically for law enforcement officers being prosecuted in Minnesota. Most police officers around the country can freely draw from these types of funds to push through long legal battles. Samantha. Michael's reported on this for Mother Jones, and she joins us now. Welcome. Hi, Ari. Thanks for having me to report that The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association has hundreds of thousands of dollars set aside for these kinds of cases and there many other similar funds all over the country, some with millions of dollars. How do they work? So these associations have legal defense funds, which are basically big pots of money that will pay for an officer's legal fees in a criminal trial. And officers helped build up these legal funds through their police unions, so they'll pay either monthly or annual fees that build up the funds. And then if they beat somebody or killed somebody or are accused of another crime. You can call up the association and get connected with an attorney who will work with them throughout the duration of the legal proceedings. These funds are broadly speaking for police officers and law enforcement. But can you tell us more about specifically which officers tend to draw on these resource is these funds are used mostly by officers who are accused of crimes. So that often happens after an officer uses excessive force against somebody on patrol. Often these funds are used after on duty shootings. So one of the biggest arguments against this kind of a system. So one of the biggest concerns is that this creates an unfair advantage for police officers. Most other people who are not police officers don't get access to this kind of funding through their unions if they are accused of crimes. And so some activists are concerned that if police officers have unlimited funding for their trials that it creates an uneven playing field. And it makes it harder to convict them. And so it's just another factor. That kind of adds the perception that police are almost legally untouchable after they beat or kill somebody. There's also another potential problem, which is that some of these police associations that are paying money for defense attorneys for police officers are also pouring a lot of money into district attorney elections. S O. Supporting prosecutors who were are going to have to decide whether or not to file charges against police officers. And so there's a concern that this creates a conflict of interest. Children's lawyers are arguing that he was properly doing the job of a police officer when he kneeled on George Floyd's neck and Floyd died. If that is the case, then why wouldn't it be appropriate for the police Department to handle his defense? In speaking with people who work for city's attorney's offices. I learned that most cities, most municipalities don't pay for the criminal legal fees for officers. It's more common that cities will pay for the civil litigation like if an officer gets sued, you know, big picture. Police officers are rarely convicted for on duty killings. How big a role do You think these kinds of funds play in that outcome? I think these funds are one factor in that outcome. It insures that they have enough money to sustain potentially very long criminal trials. But there are also other factors at play that make it hard to convict police officers. One of those is just how our use of force laws are set up there pretty lenient. And a lot of them say that if a police officer reasonably feared for their life for their safety than it's okay for them to use force, and so that makes it really hard for prosecutors to file charges, and it makes it even harder for courts to convict. Samantha Michaels is reporter for Mother Jones magazine. Thank you very much. Thanks so much. This week, the World Health Organization released a long awaited joint report with China into the source of Kobe 19 1 of its big conclusions is that the virus is most likely to have originated in bats in southern China and then made its way into humans via some sort of intermediate animal. But some people are not buying this theory. NPR China correspondent John Rule, which reports soon after the W H o China report came out the U. S and 13 other countries expressed concerns about it. Joint statement did not mention the possibility that the virus might have escaped from a laboratory that studies Corona viruses in the Chinese city of Wuhan, but it did call for more transparent and independent analysis free from political interference. The head of the W H O te dress. Adam gave racist was blunter, saying the lab league theory had not been assessed extensively enough and requires further investigation and potentially additional missions to China. Jamie Metzl is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. He agrees. I'm not saying that I am certain that covert 19 stems from an accidental lab lick. But it would be absolutely irresponsible and could on Lee be politically motivated to say that it's not even worth having a full investigation Missile says. While there's no smoking gun for a lab leak, in my view, there's more circumstantial evidence that it came from the lab. Then it came through in through a serious of zoonotic jumps. Through intermediate animal hosts because there's no evidence of that, many scientists say, just the opposite. Based on the available evidence, they believe the Corona virus appears far more likely to have emerged naturally. Still, critics say that while the W H o team was able to visit state run bio labs in Wuhan and talk to scientists, they did not investigate the lab league theory thoroughly enough. I think that this situation in it really is setting a precedent for the future. Elina Chan is a postdoctoral scientist working on genetics at the Broad Institute in Boston. This time, it's China. That's in the hot spot. But next time maybe it's not trying. So if we decide that we cannot investigate. If you just give up this time, then other countries might feel that that there isn't an accountability mechanism in place and that could potentially lead to less stringent and more dangerous lab conditions, she says. Not far beneath the surface of the debate, however, our geopolitical tensions between China and the United States President Trump and his administration embraced the lab leak theory and pushed early for an investigation. Scott Kennedy, with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, says China's foot dragging on an investigation, counter accusations and penchant for secrecy haven't helped it. The West prides itself on its openness and transparency relative to authoritarian places like China. So in the competition for soft power and legitimacy. This is a useful topic to continue to push. But he and others say the search for the origins of the virus shouldn't bogged down U. S policy toward China. Ever. Seligson, an assistant professor at Villanova University, and former U S diplomat says piling pressure on China is only going to make Beijing defensive. I think that leads to a lot of accusations, and eventually someone decides to defuse it by coming up with some sort of face saving agreement. But I don't think it actually leads to science. And that means it may make it harder to find the answers that everyone is looking for. John Rue Itch NPR news. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news, and.
