"On the weekend edition. I'll be bringing you some of the best stories from the week Derrick SHOW. Vin trial continued this week as we heard from experts saying that George Floyd died from a lack of oxygen and not because of drugs or health conditions. We also heard a lot of people describing the crumbling of the blue wall of silence. We heard from Minneapolis police chief McGary, A. Arredondo and several other officers that worked with shoving testify that his actions were not necessary and out of line with police training. For more on this will speak to General Griffith, National reporter at NBC News, the Blue Wall of silence at its core. It's an unofficial both among police officers not to report a colleague's wrongdoing, and that includes criminal activity. So if you were to witness them, commit a crime on an assignment or responding to a scene, you would just keep that to yourselves or keep it among yourselves what we're seeing in Derek Challenge trial. Which, like you said it is remarkable. Not only are some of his former colleagues testifying against him and testifying for the prosecution, but his own former boss, the police chief, It's very rare for a police chief to testify against an officer. And that's why it's getting so much attention. And on top of testifying, they're saying extremely damning things. They're saying that Derek Sheldon one against They're training. They're saying that his actions were not reflective of the department. I don't know if you are aware, but in June, about a month after George Boy died, the police chief had put out a very sharp, harsh statement criticizing all four officers who were at the scene and he said out, right That one officer at the scene was responsible for George Boyd's death, and the other three did nothing to stop it and that obviously, he was saying that Derek Sheldon was responsible because he was the one who notes on his neck. So we are seeing at least with regard to this case. The whole blue wall concept come undone and I think from the experts I spoke to. I spoke to both legal experts and law enforcement experts. And they told me that the reason why it's because they believe that these officers and the police chief himself Found Derek Sheldon's actions indefensible and they think that had these officers or any officers, really whether they're in Minneapolis or elsewhere publicly tried to defend Derek Shelvin. It would indict kind of policing as we know it, and the police chief was careful not to indict the entire profession. He has singled out these specific officers and in order to perhaps maintain morale. He did so and he also has made it clear that he has taken issue with these four officers. He's not trying to Suggest that there's a problem with the entire Minneapolis police Department or policing as we know it. I mean, it's definitely a chance for them to kind of change the perception of police and policing them speaking up against this, and let's run down briefly who we heard from. We heard from police chief Mad area are Redondo We heard from Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman. He's the longest serving officer in the Minneapolis Police Department. Inspector Katie Blackwell. She's the commander of the training division. You know, she said that she didn't recognize you know that need position. That's not something that they teach. And then Sergeant David player he's Ah, Sheldon's former supervising supervisor. Yes, he responded to the scene after George Boyd had been taken away in an ambulance and his testimony was also damning because Again. Not only did he say that the restraint should have ended sooner. He also went further and he threw questioning. He explained that Derek shelving did not immediately divulge that he had notes on George Floyd. And it wasn't until after George boy died, and he started, Sergeant Crowder started probing more and asking more questions. Then it came out that their Children had notes on George Woods's neck. And even then he didn't stay for the expensive time. He wasn't transparent and how long he had now gone his neck. So these four people combined. I think they really help to the prosecution. And like you said, it may have larger implications. The experts that I spoke to are hoping that it does there, hoping that it opens conversation for why this hasn't been done sooner. They're hoping that it stands as a precedent, and it encourages other officers across the country that when they see their colleagues doing something they shouldn't be doing or abusing the badge, so to speak, that they report them and call them out so that they can maintain integrity for the policing industry itself. And this case specifically, obviously we have the video. Many, many Will have seen it, You know, shove in kneeling on Floyd's neck for over nine minutes. That's different on you made mention in the article, too. You know it's different than the act of shooting somebody, which does require those split second decisions, whether right or wrong, you know, those congee argued on their own cases, but this is different. It's not that case of like, Oh, man, I'm scared for my life. I shot him. This was this deliberate act that took place over the course of minutes. And this could be another reason why these other officers are speaking out against that that it was wrong because it wasn't that split second decision. You hit the nail on the head. That's absolutely what we're hearing, experts have said, and also, even while they were going through jury selection, a lot of jurors who were dismissed. They said that they cannot be impartial. They feel like it was just that egregious. They've made up their minds. They have determined in their hearts and in their minds that what Derek showman did to George Boyd was rock and they would not give him a fair shot at a fair trial if they were selected for the jury. And it is unique. Not only is it the length of time, the mere fact that we have a video, it's very rare. We have many videos. It's very rare in a criminal case that you have so many videos from so many different body cameras from so many different angles from city surveillance footage from A convenience store where George Boyd is alleged to have used a fake $20 bill to buy cigarettes. There's so much video. The most damning, of course, or the most harrowing, of course, is the one of Derek Sheldon on top of George Floyd. But there's so much video that it makes it hard to turn a blind eye to this, regardless of where you stand on the issue, So I mean, we're going to keep monitoring the trial, obviously to see what happens. But as I mentioned just something really remarkable where we saw, these officers say. This is not what we trained. This is not how we train officers that shouldn't have been done and them saying it's obvious that it shouldn't have been done that way. So we'll see. You know very impactful. In the case so far, and we'll see how the rest of it turns out. Jenelle Griffith, National reporter at NBC News. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me this'll week. We also heard a lot about vaccine passports as it's become another contentious issue in the country. Governors in Texas and Florida, signing orders banning them in their states. The argument is that it will reduce individual freedom and harm patient privacy. Still, many private companies are planning to move forward with requiring proof of vaccination.

"Your rock and roll in this morning, Theo. USGS says the four point Oh magnitude earthquake that was felt by many of us this morning was just one of three. The first one or the I should say the last one. The biggest one was at 4 45 near Lenox, but there were two before that The first one was a 3.3 at 4 15. A minute later, there was a magnitude 2.5. The last one was felt from the South Bay to Montebello and Burbank. Pretty much Southern California felt that's last one. So there's that's what woke you up this morning. If you were wondering, and L, a county moved into the orange tear, allowing restaurants to allow indoor dining up to 50% capacity or 200 people, whichever is fewer. Well right now, let's say good morning to ABC s Mark Roma Lard and Mark. So today is the second week now of the Derrick Show Vin trial. He, of course, the former Minneapolis police officer Charged in the killing of George Floyd. And before we go back and kind of take a look at what happened last week, I want to talk about specifically who is going to be on the stand today. The police chief, and this has been testimony. Honestly, I've been looking forward to hearing Yeah. Yeah, It's expected that the Minneapolis police chief Magaria Arredondo will testify. On. Of course, this is as the prosecution is now shifting out of what we saw him mostly in week, one in terms of very emotional testimony and putting the jury in the scene of what happened between George Floyd and police and now moving into The more technical aspects of this, the issues of policy and training and whether or not showman was acting appropriately on May 25th 20 or 25 2020. Of course, the prosecution's contention is that he was not. And so we are expected to hear from the police chief could be as early as today expected, possibly today. But we've heard from other police members of the police department as well, such as Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman, who testified on Friday. He's the head of homicide and you know, he was saying that he's never been trained. To kneel on someone once that sun suspect is in handcuffs. As we know George Floyd was now the cross examination of Zimmerman tried to get him to show that Officers have discretion in how they handle suspects, especially if they feel that they're resistant or that they're being threatened by that individual. Of course, Zimmerman challenge that in a way by saying Once someone's in handcuffs, the threat is greatly reduced. And again. We know Floyd was in handcuffs when he was on the floor there. So the defense trying to trying to pull that apart, But at the same time when it is expected that the prosecution is going to continue moving from or into these Technical testimonies about the policy training. And, of course, we still haven't even yet gotten into the medical examiner's report and what the county found the cause of death to be as the result of law enforcement's of duel. Okay, So before we get to that part just going back to you the way that they just keep hammering what the procedure is what the procedure is. What they're trying to do is sort of peel back the layers on the onions of one of Show Vince defenses, which is that he was simply going by the book. He was following protocol. The other one obviously being the drugs in the system of George Boyd, right, And so I think you're going to see the second half of that the drugs in the system and George Floyd's health Be challenged by, you know, obviously not challenge does it hasn't been laid out yet, But you know the first kind of blow to that being the idea that the medical examiner's report, which you know is comes later, but right now, yes, the focus is on. That policy and training And as we heard, you know this idea that officers have discretion. Yes, but at the same time as this lieutenant was testifying, is that you? You may kneel on someone. But the purpose of that, in the training of that is to Get them into handcuffs and then part of your training as well is understanding that someone laying on their stomach as George Floyd was, and then putting your knee on their shoulder or their neck puts them in a very dangerous position. And so the officers Are supposed to if they do that at all. Put them into handcuffs. Get the suspect into handcuffs, which greatly reduces the threat they may pose and then put them into a recovery position, put them typically on their side so that they can resume normal breathing. And so the idea here being that the training Derek Children would have been should have been probably did receive. Is that, uh, he should have known that he needed to get off of you should have known the risk of putting his knee on Floyd's neck the way that he was doing it for how long he was doing it without attempting to then move Floyd into a recovery position so that he could continue breathing normally. And and and so the obviously that's the prosecution's contention here, and I think one of the other things that that's coupled with as well. Is part of the training as well is to say that if someone is encountering some kind of medical emergency, the officers are there on the scene and can begin attempting to provide medical care to that person resuscitate in that person, and we heard from paramedics who arrived on the scene like Derek Smith, one of the paramedics who testified last week. Who said for all intents and purposes when he arrived, Floyd was dead, and he expressed frustration that the officers didn't attempt to provide any medical care before he arrived on the scene..

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior.
