"And legal analyst. Joe tamburrino joe. Thanks are coming back on the newsworthy. Me so i. I want to get your overall reaction to the trial itself. Did anything really stand out to you. Was there any surprises throughout the process. What was your take well. Three things stood out. One is cameras in the courtroom. This was the first one in minnesota history where there have been cameras in the courtroom and everything was televised. And hopefully that's here to stay. It was an amazing way to see how our justice system works. No doubt second was the bow luminous amount of information that the prosecution was allowed to get into evidence. You couldn't help but notice that this was the first time where you had officers. Come in and were allowed to say. Gee i wouldn't have done that. He used excessive force so on and so forth Lieutenant zimmerman the longest person. Active person in mp deep is not a use of force expert but these officers were allowed to come in and give their testimony which was great for the state. I mean it was fabulous evidence for the stayed. The defense didn't object and the judge permitted. Third was a lackluster performance by the defense. What did you make show vince. Decision not to testify crazy. He had to get up on the stand unless he was gonna be a god off a witness. Just come across as a jerk. He had to take the stand because everybody is a human being in that courtroom. That jury needed him to say. Oh my lord. I am so sorry i never meant for this to happen. I thought i was just holding him on the ground. I heard you know my partner. Say why can't find a pulse while he's a rookie. He's only been a cop for a week. I was concerned about this guy. Jumping up whatever he had to get up there and humanize himself big mistake. When you heard the jury was ready to give the verdict. After only about ten hours of deliberations. What did that tell you. I mean this was a no brainer with the evidence that came in you know. Ten hours is not long but it was absolutely no surprise. I thought it was gonna come back guilty on all the next day. Meaning not tuesday but wednesday and it was even quicker than i thought. So what happens to derek chauvin now. Well he'll remain in custody until his sentencing from now till his sentencing date and one has not been set but the judge said probably be about eight weeks from now so mid to late june and end the judge will sentence him in between the judge has his decision to make as to whether or not aggravating factors exist in this case and if the judge decides that such factors do exist he could go above the guidelines the guidelines in this case call for twelve and a half years. He could go all the way up to forty years and then he's going to get sentenced said i think he's gonna get sentenced to thirty years. The defense team has the option at least to appeal. What are you watching for with the appeal process. What could be their argument. Do you expect them to go forward with that. I mean if you don't do an appeal. I think you're not doing a service to your client So i think they have to do an appeal. Our our court of appeals is going to say look. You didn't object so you waved them. That's going to be the problem. There's a lot of things that were not objected to and on an appeal. That's called a waiver. You can't let it go at the trial court level and then say at. The court of appeals g. I made a mistake. Can you give me another chance now. There are some things that were objected to and the best one is going to be the judge not sequestering the jury fully which means they don't go home at up from jury selection until they come back with a verdict. There tucked away in the hotel. That should have happened when mr nelson made that motion when city of minneapolis announced a twenty seven million dollars settlement with floyd families and then there was the brooklyn center. Shoot and then. There was everything in the media and then there was a juror who had to be questioned by the judge who supposedly mentioned some type of a book deal. All of these things happen. So that's gonna be. The defense is best argument on appeal. I think it's a longshot. Appeals are always a long shot final takeaway for the audience. Just now that. This trial has come to an end. Watch these trials this case shows you. How the sausage is made and the sausage is made pretty well overall Everybody got a fair shake. Everybody got time to argue their case for the most part the rules were followed and so it was a great window into how our system works.

"And on the requirement to give aid to a person in distress. And it couldn't be more wrong in our estimation you. You really can't not testify that way. So yes i am. Heartened by lieutenant zimmerman the senior most police officer on the minneapolis police force who just laid derek. Chauvin out said all of these things blatantly violated. Npd policy chief dondo. The chief of police was an inspirational Witness and person he to me is what a chief of police and i wish all police officers would be an could be you know. He was so thoughtful so sober. So circumspect so precise in his testimony and you know he said derek chauvin violated mpg policy in not one but four ways you know and so we have more police witnesses. Today i do think at some point the defense will have a well placed objection that it's becoming cumulative what people might not realize. Today's witnesses in this was a smart tactical move by the prosecutors. With first few use of force. Witnesses said these are the police policies. And this is why what. I see on videotape derek. Chauvin and the other officers did to george. Floyd violated our policies. If you notice today's witnesses it was sergeant yang and lieutenant I forget his name Who testified the late morning. They also said these are our use of force policies but they also added something to the mix. That sort of was able to stave off a defense. Cumulative objection sergeant yang said Derek chauvin went through our de-escalate or crisis intervention training in two thousand sixteen. And then the lieutenant said and he went through our use of Our use of force training in two thousand eighteen. Those were important pieces. Why because you can prove up to the jury all day long. That mtv has certain policies in place. But you also need to prove the derek chauvin was trained on those policies. He wasn't out sick choking out a suspect that day instead he attended the training. So but i think you're gonna see many more police witnesses on use of force. I think we're now going to transition. Into the forensic pathologist medical examiners who performed the autopsy for the for the county and the defense expert medical examiner david fowler. Who was one of my star. Witnesses in homicides trials when i was a prosecutor. Because he's just that good. So i actually think we're gonna see a battle of the experts on cause of death and it's going to be a pretty consequential battle. Unfortunately yeah i. I'm the only thing i'm a little worried about. And i know arredondo had mentioned this to in his testimony that when they were talking about drugs and alcohol being a factor in in use of force training But you know he. He countered that with look. De-escalation is ongoing. You don't decide to. I'm not going to de-escalate here. And then don't think about it again for the rest of the encounter. It has to be a constant reassessment of of what's going on. I thought that was really powerful testimony. But what do you think. I mean what what are. Help us understand the differences between the two experts here. What one expert is going to say that the that the substantial cause of death was something besides Having the knee on the neck. I don't know because the fence has announced given.

"Sir. Jason, we got you Now I hear you're mourning. All right there. Now you get the the studio audience applause. We thank you. I feel better. Yeah, There is quite a bit of ground to cover based off the testimony that took place yesterday, Jason. But let's some kind of do what we do, often with a lot of our guests actually do with our previous guest and Let you choose your own adventure. What part of yesterday? Do you want to go in and kind of speak about? Speak about first. Yes. So much interesting stuff, right? I think what we heard from the Chief of police was very much what we expected to me. What? We got a glimpse at yesterday. Was some of the other themes that the defense will bring up which I thought was interesting because we knew that she was gonna say bye department policy. You know this was too far. The chief did contradict some of the testimony from Lieutenant Zimmerman last week where Lieutenant Zimmerman said that he had never been trained in. Ah, restraint. Like we saw and the chief of pointed out that there are situations where that sort of restraint is allowed. The main distinction the chief seemed to be making, which is what the prosecution's case is, is that the restraint went on for too long right that perhaps at the beginning, there was some reason to use it, but to be going on that entire time was unnecessary. Interestingly, he said, it was a violation, the department's morals and standards which I thought was Curious thing to say in testimony, but it certainly was playing well outside the courtroom nationally, I think people were appreciative of a chief calling out his former officer, if if they indeed are on that side of the argument, I suppose, but in the courtroom, it was another witness in a long line of police. Superiors saying that show Vin basically is a bad cop in this scenario. Well, when we definitely as expected have a words were beginning to sort of whittled down to the core. You know of of both of the cases right in. This is to be expected. I did think I and I agree with you. I think the testimony from Arredondo was interesting. Not not inasmuch as.

"So in your opinion Should that restraint have stopped once he was handcuffed and thrown on the ground. Absolutely whips that was devastating. That's where we left off last week. This is now weak, too, in the trial of Derek Shelvin. The man who is accused of murdering George Floyd in front of everybody's eyes, Everybody's ears and what you see the prosecution doing is Building their case based on their opening statement. They tell you what they're going to tell you, and then they show you what they're going to tell you. And then at the end in the closing, they will tell you what they told you. That is a successful prosecution, and so what they've begun to do is prove their opening statement True. And they're opening statement was very simple. They're opening statement Woz that there was an unlawful use of force against George Floyd that led to his death that led to his death that caused his death. So we started out. Okay, Week one. The very first witness that we heard was Jenna Scurry. Jonas Curry was the 911 operator who took the first call for service. She actually justified that she thought that her video screen that was showing her a city camera of the cup foods had frozen because the police officers didn't move. They just stayed on the neck of George Floyd for so long. Turns out it was nine minutes and 29 seconds. That she thought that the camera had frozen. Her instincts told her Something was horribly wrong on this call. And so she then called the sergeant. The sergeant is the person who is the frontline supervisor for patrol officers. The sergeant was Sergeant Pflueger. Sergeant Pflueger went to the call. Okay. When he got there he was not told by Derek Shelvin or any of the other officers. That they had been standing on George Floyd's neck. They just left that part out. Okay. Now, remember that the 911 operator Jenna Scurry had called him because something felt wrong, and it looked really wrong to her. And so now you have the sergeant on duty, responding to her call to go out there and see what happened. Well, he said that first of all, if they had him in handcuffs, they should have sat him up. Okay. He should have spin sat up or rolled on his side. Because when your hands are literally tied behind your back, your chest muscles expand. And if you're laying prone on the ground on top of your chest, and then you have a human being on top of you on top of that. Probably not gonna be able to breathe and you probably will asphyxiate, all right, but he testified that he was not told At all. My show Vin or towel or King or any of the officers lane that were present that They had sat on top of George Floyd. In fact, he said, he what the cops neglected to say this until they got to the medical examiner's office. Once the cops were all in the medical examiner's office with the sergeant. That is when Derrick show, Vin finally said what he had done. Now we get the testimony Friday afternoon from Lieutenant Zimmerman. Now, Lieutenant Zimmerman is the longest serving police officer on the Minneapolis police force, and he is a homicide supervisor. He's called out to the scene after the fact to do the Investigation into cause of death into what happened at the scene, and he testifies devastatingly okay. And I think flew girl's testimony was pretty devastating to where he actually testifies that no one told him. No one told him that they had sat on top of George fluid until everybody's at the medical examiner's office. Now something weird happens at the medical examiner's office. I don't know exactly what we'll find out. Because the medical examiner will be called to the stand. But now we have the lieutenant testifying last week. Lieutenant Zimmerman, Richard.

"Welcome back to the Karen Conti Show on WGN. And we're here with Geoff Storm's even in Minneapolis attorney who is representing one of the attorneys representing the George Floyd. Family, and we're talking about the criminal case that's going on against Derek showing the officer. Thank you for joining us again, Jeff on this Easter Sunday, I want to talk about the witnesses that were called by the prosecution who were the bystanders, and they seemed like they had arranged from age nine to age 61. And they talked about what they saw. Can you just tell our listeners how impactful you think that testimony Woz. I think it was very impactful in part in its uniformity, you know, going back to the prosecution's opening statement of saying, You, Condoleeza, your eyes You have a wide range of bystanders, bystanders with different life experiences, all reaching the same conclusion that what was happening to George was wrong and unnecessary and so to hear that wide range of bystanders all reach the same conclusion, which is the same conclusion that I think almost any reasonable person viewing. The video has reached I think has great impact. And I think there was also a strong emotional aspect. My gosh, I mean, I think all of them maybe to a one broke down in tears. There was one female who was AH, firefighter I believe are the M T. A and she she was just she was beside herself saying, You know, I I know this guy's dying and I can't do anything and she tried to do something and she got more forceful and she was declined and she really I think a lot of people felt that survivor's guilt or or something. Akin to it. Yeah, And I think you know, in terms of a little bit of Ah, more technical, legal analysis and far be it for me to Monday morning quarterback anyone, but I think there were definitely some eyebrows raised as to how it was the defense allowed all that testimony Come in going. I was going to ask you that because The jury is the ultimate arbiter of what was right. And what was wrong, right? So So, what? Testimony of these bystanders? I mean, from a layperson standpoint, you say yourself. Yeah, I want to hear what people said. When they're walking past. It doesn't really go to the issue that the jury has to decide. How did that evidence? Get in? Yeah, you know, I think a lot of attorneys, they're scratching their head. I'm asking themselves that question. It would strike me that you certainly wouldn't want to make that objection in front of the jury because you might anger the jury. If it becomes obvious what you're keeping out. And so it just strikes me that maybe there wasn't some proper motion and eliminate practice And from that, for listeners motion eliminated is a Latin term. That means, you know, motion to limit and what happens in a trial and Jeff why don't you talk about emotions eliminate what that generally is in a trial. Generally is as an attorney prepares for trial. We know there's certain piece of the evidence that we want to keep out and often it's so devastating that you don't even want to run the risk of its coming in or having the jury watch you try to keep it out in front of them by making an objection. So we make that motion before the trial starts before the jury is seated so that that issue is resolved and you don't have even the bad appearance of that really damaging testimony coming into evidence. So one of the things you talked about before the break is the fact that the defense is trying to say that there was this unruly crowd and that some of the people who are testifying were actually interfering, Maybe with Sheldon's ability to conduct his job, and that was part of some of the cross examination that you know that perhaps Sheldon would have led up. I mean, there's this idea that he would have let up on Floyd head The crowd. Not in God not gotten ugly. Is that what kind of they were trying to do? And does that seem like a good strategy to you? It's not a strategy that anyone's gonna buy. I wouldn't think based upon the testimony we've seen, you know, and no point of time that you have one of these bystanders run in an attempt to interfere physically with the officers. They stayed where they were told to stay. They were expressing concerns and concerns with a lot of specificity. You know, check this man's poles. You know, I'm a firefighter. He's not responsive. You know you're choking the air out of this man. You know, they gave I'm very specific information that any reasonable person should have been acting upon at the time, and they were right. You know, certainly the jury is going to know that there is they're going to have the benefit of hindsight here, even though they'll be told Ignore that. But all of these bystanders were saying all the same things that we say at home. Even if we watch the video now, you know, it's almost impossible to watch the video and still not hope for a different outcome. Because it's so obvious, of course. So I don't think they're gonna have much success. Their parents. Yeah, and you know, I guess I have said before, when you cross examine a witness who's there? And the witnesses sympathetic. The person's crying because they're reliving this traumatic incident of watching a person die before your eyes and to cross examine them. And to sort of even make an accusation. Even if it's a sideways one that you're part responsible for show Vin being distracted. I just think that you gotta be very careful there because the jury could turn on you very quickly making that those kinds of insinuations I guess I should say. Yeah, if I were If I were Erik Nelson sitting at home, I would really think twice about pursuing that line. To the extent it's available any further to him this week. Exactly. This is called Well. One of the most astounding pieces of testimony, in my view was Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman and Ben, Can you play a lot? I just have a tiny little clip from his testimony, and he is a current police officer. He was the person who served on the Force longer than anybody else On the whole Police department an unusual situation here. He testifies against one of his own, which you rarely see. Ben wanted to play that clip. Any review of the body, one camera videos of the incident. Yes, and directing your attention to that moment when Mr Floyd is placed on the ground. Yes. Um What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Um Well, first of all. Uh, Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of pot that amount of time. It's just Uncalled for. Jeff, How does this testimony is this just a eyes? This is an astounding piece of testimony. You are my just misreading this. You know, it would be a founding for everyone in the world. Maybe except for me and a few other people, because I I've actually had the benefit of the posing. Lieutenant Zimmerman when Minneapolis police officers killed a man named David Smith in almost an identical fashion to George Floyd in 2010, and when I deposed Lieutenant Zimmerman in 2010, he said, virtually all of the same things and so it's hard for all of us. Understand how it is. George Fluid dies in 2020 When you have these commanding officers like Lieutenant Zimmerman, Saying the same thing. 10 years ago, Everyone in the department knew that you couldn't restrain somebody in the prone position like this. It's unlawful and likely to kill somebody. I think it's just very, very compelling. The most experienced guy in the whole department again turning on one of his own, which you just don't see, especially I mean, I know in Chicago. That's been a big criticism of the police department for for years and years. It's a broader picture..

C Yesterday afternoon. It's hitting close to home, You're suddenly bc's match. Shearer the killing of Capitol Police officer Billy Evans, is a sad story for so many, but it's even more close to home for Western Mass. Evans was born and raised in North Adams, a graduate of Drewry High School, where he played baseball and was in the band. Childhood friends describe him as a jokester who loved making people laugh. They say he was proud of his family, his two young kids who he leaves behind and proud of his role as a Capitol police officer. He held that title for 18 years until Friday, when a man drove his car into a barricade where Evans and another officer were on duty. Evans did not survive, Nor did the driver who was shot by police after he exited the vehicle with a knife. Motive of the attack is still under investigation, while base staters mourn the loss of one of our own match here. WBZ Boston's news radio Flags are at half staff at the U.

Brian Buck Meyer. I don't think this proves murder, though. What it does show is that showman step out Side of his procedure, step outside of the policies and therefore did something wrong. The question is, what is that wrong? And the medical examiner and testimony and the cross examination of the medical examiner is gonna show us whether or not murder is gonna be made out here.

"Degrees in Boston on this Saturday afternoon. Three o'clock I'm Madison Rogers. Here's what's happening. Yesterday's attack outside the U. S capital that killed a capital officer as a local community in mourning. But leave easy's match here has more. Billy Evans was a fellow New Englander. He grew up in Western Mass between North Adams and neighboring Clarksburg. He was both athletic and musically inclined, having played in the jury high school band as well as the baseball team. But by the time Billy got to college, his dream job was to join the Capitol Police force. He achieved that goal in 2003 friends say he was so proud. He carried his badge with them everywhere until tragedy struck. On Friday, a 25 year old man drove his car into a barricade where Billy Evans was on duty. The suspect, then exited the vehicle and approached officers with a knife who shot and killed him. One officer was taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

"We're joined by Jim Trustee. He is a partner it if we're along here in Washington, he is the former chief of the organized crime and gang section at the U. S Department of Justice. Jim Good morning. Good morning. I know you've been watching very closely the trial of Officer Derek showman in the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. We've probably seen snippets this week on TV but hasn't had the full gavel to gavel coverage is we saw on the O. J. Simpson trial. So bring us up to speed the first week of testimony, a summary of what you see on the case. Yeah, I think it's a pretty masterful mix from the prosecution of putting on good witnesses of pretty sympathetic witness is well spoken. And mixing up. Obviously, the use of the video, which is always going to be a central anchor of this case, with the beginnings of the opinions of officers talking about whether Shobin was essentially breaking from his training. And doing something that was unreasonable. So we had kind of a smattering of different witnesses and Rick to go a little bit inside baseball about prosecutors because I was one for 27 years. They like to start off strong In their case, It's important to have good witnesses right out of the gate. So if you have a witness that had inconsistent statements or some sort of a bad background, he really don't want to lead with that person. You want the jury kind of eating out of your hand enjoying the witnesses, liking the people and liking the information they have. And you kind of buried the bad news in between good witnesses. You also try to end your day and your week on a high note. You don't want to go into a holiday weekend with a fizzle with a bad witness or witnesses Easy to impeach through cross examination. And so yesterday, that's pretty much how it ended for the government was putting on officer shows in Superior, Lieutenant Zimmerman. On. He basically said This was totally unnecessary conduct kneeling on George Ford's neck and completely against this train, so we're not even really to the expert witnesses yet when it comes to use of deadly force But it was a pretty powerful condemnation from Sheldon's own supervisor, and that's exactly what you'd want The jury to be taken home with them for the weekend, and that's what the prosecution succeeded in doing how would you summarize the defense? You know, it's interesting. I mean, they're they're making their points they're talking about, you know, essentially that they've alleged that the training in Minnesota was exactly to do things like Neil on a person. I mean, I think that's going to be a bit of a tough one that pull off in the grand scheme of things. What they've suggested that there was other causation to the death of Mr Floyd to the then I believe they refer to it a speedball, But it was basically fentanyl as kind of the lead suspect of a drug cocktail that was in his body. And so you know, they have to walk a delicate line. They want to talk about causation of death because that is an important part of a homicide prosecution, but they don't want to sound like they're just dismissive of Florida's a human being, or that they are, you know, gratuitously being nasty about him and his background, so it's a fairly tough kind of sensitive walk. I think they pulled it off decently in opening statement, But, you know, we'll see. The big battles are still to come the role of the medical examiner. How important will this be and what we know about conclusions that he's drawn? Yeah, it's gonna be a big battlefield there. It's and frankly, it's a real minefield for the prosecution because, as I understand it the original autopsy findings from the medical examiner Essentially said that there was no causation from Officer show them. They looked a certain physical artifacts that happened when a person is suffocated. And in this case, they didn't find him. It's particular hemorrhaging in the eyes, which are like little burst blood vessels and also damage to the hyoid bone or to the trachea area and Apparently, none of that was there. The original medical examiner took kind of this strange middle ground and said, Well, he died of cardiac arrest, which is pretty circular. Yes. When someone's heart stops speeding, they're not going to keep living. So that was challenged by the prosecutors. And as I understand it, we should expect to see several different medical examiner's Through the course of this case. It may be the original initial medical examiner is a defense witness. And that's kind of unusual territory for prosecutors and typically do not go into these fights with their own kind of homegrown medical examiners, and the issue of causation is going to be front and center in front of the jury is a very clinical, cold academic kind of approach to the issue that the defense is going to take. But it is the stuff of reasonable doubt, sometimes And what about the charges? I understand that there's a manslaughter charge. There's a second degree murder charge and a third degree murder charge. Yeah, these air, very nuanced charges. It's actually pretty difficult stuff. And even folks that have been around the law for a long time. Have a hard time. Describing in any real precision that differences between these different degrees of murder. But second degree murder. Here is what is normally referred to his felony murder. And in a lot of states that the first degree murder it's if you're engaging in some sort of crime, and the person ends up dying during that. That can be elevated to what's called a felony murder. So here, the excessive force would be the felony assault and if he died as a result of that, which that's going to be an argument And that could be considered second degree murder, which is possible by up to 40 years. That's the highest charge on the table. Third degree murder is what most states have as second degree murder, not to get too confusing. The third degree murder here means depraved heart murder. It's essentially there was such a level of recklessness that it contributed or led to the death of Mr Floyd and then manslaughter. Is essentially a gross negligence type offenses that he did so many things during the transaction, you know, starting with putting the knee on the neck, not removing it, not giving him the type of medical treatment he could have given him is immediately because In all of those things could be argued to be a scene of gross negligence, which is a notch below the recklessness that we're talking about for third degree murder and punishable by only 10 years, so It's a very fuzzy lines between his degrees of criminal intent or negligence, but they have a pretty serious consequences in terms of what the potential sentence maybe Jim, I think most people will have heard the name George Gascon. He is the new district attorney in L. A county..

"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.

MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law

"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.

"Minneapolis police lieutenant testifying that putting a knee on the neck of anyone who was handcuffed is using deadly force. Damning testimony, Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman said. Officers are taught not to keep a handcuff person face down. Once a person is cuffed. You need to turn him on their side or have them set up. You need to get him off their chest because of the as I have mentioned earlier, your muscles are pulling Back when you had trouble right, So Lieutenant Zimmerman is a homicide detective he has been on the force remains on the force for 35 years in Minneapolis. And again, Zimmerman said.
