"That's a 911 dispatcher who watched the George Floyd incident unfold live on a police surveillance camera. She was the first witness to take the stand today in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Showman who is charged with Floyd's murder. Kneeling on his neck for 9.5 minutes, Defense attorney Eric Nelson told the jury police were trying to control Floyd. You learn Derek Sheldon did exactly what he had been trained to do over the course of his 19 year career. Prosecutor Gerry Blackwell says jurors will hear from a number of witnesses who called the police on the police who will learn that on May 25th of 2020. Mr Derek shopping. Trade this badge. Used excessive. Unreasonable force. Upon the body. Mr George for you. A B C's mark Rebel are joining us on the co Moh news line and mark explain what was the most compelling part of today's opening statements from both the prosecution and the defense. Yeah, I thought the prosecution opened with this very nuanced look at the case. And and I I think was very intentional. What we heard from from right at the get Go, which from the prosecutor, Gerry Blackwell. Itwas you started with a very high minded look at law enforcement and policing that these are civil servants who served with integrity and courtesy that they do not use excessive force that Minneapolis police officers are trained to on Lee use force. It is objectively reasonable and And then they say that the evidence will show that that was not what happened to George Floyd and seem to me like they were walking a fine line that they're not putting law enforcement on trial here. They're putting Derrick Show been on trial and saying there are policies and training that officers go through and Derrick Show Vin violated those. So that's the set up that seemed to be That struck me from the prosecution and then from the defense right from the beginning to Erik Nelson, the defense attorney walked out with a line about common sense that as he put it to the jury, as they well know, there are always two sides to the story. So you know, opening up that door of listen to the other side of this case, do not make up your mind already, and there could be doubt here and that kind of thing, so I thought it was very interesting to watch how both of these the prosecution and the defense both said. The tone with their opening statements that first witness the 911 dispatcher had seen much of the video actually saw it live as she was watching a neighborhood camera. What did we learn from that dispatcher? So this is actually never before seen footage released footage that I don't think has been publicly released. This was footage from a city of Minneapolis camera Street camera that she says she was monitoring. She's a 911 dispatcher. She was watching that camera and the feed from that camera.
