"I can tell you what's not gonna happen, and they'll be immense pressure on this to be very clear. There's an expectation that these bills move and if we choose and someone chooses to say we're simply not going to vote on them in this house, or we're not going to move him. There will be a very clear indication and then our system again. I believe it will work. They will find new legislators who are willing to move this because you're not going to find the majority of people who are on the side of continuing what they've seen and continuing the way it's bad. And the good news about this is if we do this, we all prosper guy follow up so quickly. I mean, governors do have the ability to convene, meaning generally, if you call people to your office, they show up. You've all been vaccinated. Are you going to actually do some hands on work with legislative leadership, particularly Republicans to start to Other? Yeah, and I tried the best I can I stay engaged with them. I mean, I I understand, And I just could be candid with everyone. Covert has put a strain on these things go to put a strain on a relationship. It's probably not a really good relationship when legislators air crafting legislation to jail the governor for having people wear masks, so I'll be the first to tell you. I'm not going to pretend this is easy. Um If we if we act like this is too hard, and this is not our moment, okay For those out there who are whatever you're feeling right now, for black families for white families, Whatever this sense of dread or whatever it was, it was hanging over us. If we don't make these changes just to be very clear. We will be right back again with another trial, another trial, another trial, and it will just The relentless We know there's things that'll work. We know that if there wasn't the desire to, uh, pull over and arrest Dante, right, and we could have just taken him Or maybe we had his license plate number just drive by his house until his mom later. I mean, there's things that we can do if someone's life is not in immediate danger that will make life better for all of us. So I will convene the question I will burn my political capital on this. I have tried Did not bring the partisan side of this in. But if there are those legislators who choose not to make these changes, I will use the platform that I have to make sure that Minnesotans know who's holding up progress that Minnesotans want. Governor Could you tell us a bit more about your conversation with the White House? What was the message from Washington after the verdict? Yeah, I got a chance to speak with President Biden in the few moments right after the verdict was read, Um I think from both of us, there was clearly a sense of relief. A sense of what is possible now, and the White House gave us their assurance. Anything we need to do on making these changes. And I just want to be clear when I say we we have changes to. I've instructed my office. There will be a full accounting and a full plan and execution to change how we deal with the media, for example, or peaceful protesters on how those things happen. And the president gave me his assurance that the federal government is there to help us do those things and and that commitment to it, But I think I certainly want wouldn't want to speak for the president. But I think a sense of a sense of relief, a sense of appreciation or again, our justice system working and then A clear understanding just like we have that This is the very bottom floor of the change that needs to happen. As as the mayor said, pretty amazing that we're all amazed that this happened in the trial of the century, right when I think as Jerry Blackwell and Steve Swisher said, you saw and you know in your heart and the witnesses were there, so he was supportive. Up hopeful, but I think the one thing that was interesting from the president was of seeing his vision of where he is that we're in the state. He knew that this was very quickly and can still very quickly spread throughout this country because the expectation of these changes and I know there's governors out their citizens in other states. This is not just Minnesota's problem. We need to own our problem and we need to fix it. But it's America's problem. And I think the president knows that WalMart governor I'm curious if burning political capital means possibly holding up budget negotiations to insist on including these changes. I won't I won't go into the hypotheticals of where it that what I am going to say is I guess in a wait and see because I want to give people the benefit of the doubt on this. It's not going to be easy to avoid this question. This time. It's not going to be easy to walk away without doing some changes and We need to make sure that what we do doesn't punish Minnesotans doesn't make it worse for Minnesotans. But that if that change that Minnesotans are demanding, is being held up by a few individuals will figure out how to make it so that those folks can help on that and bring the fixed But I'm in a place right now, Um, I think like many that things can work. That humanity does matter. The people do care about their neighbor and the vast majority of people really aren't interested in getting into political fights about something that is so self evident needs to get done, so I won't say anything particular on the strategy of doing it other than I'm gonna approach it with the sense of goodwill in the belief that we're all going to get there. Because I don't know how you could.

"I will get up. Get any time. I want the whole getting. Come on, Get up. All right, I can't. They can do to get in. Event was what many people on the street and many people around the nation heard. After all that happened via video of that interaction and the last moments of George Floyd's life, Derrick Show, Vin Ah is on trial again, as we said, for three charges, second degree murder, third degree murder. And second degree manslaughter. Jim Trustee is a former Department of Justice attorney and a Fox News contributor. He joins us with a look and his insight into what he has been following in this trial, and Jim Thank you so much for being with us. And the first question I'll ask you is a very simple question. What does the fact that this jury less than 24 hours after they started deliberations? And coming back with a verdict. What does that tell you? Well, thanks for having me and yeah, that's the important fact that start off with look, None of this is perfect science. But when you have a jury that appears to move swiftly and cohesively like this, no questions coming out from the jury room. That's a pretty good sign that this is likely a conviction. I think it would be a much longer road if they had jurors that were hanging on to the thoughts of an acquittal on all of the count's. There could still be some variation between the three counts, but Ultimately there's gonna be a guilty verdict this afternoon. What was your impression? Part me? What was your impression of the prosecution's case? They put on a very comprehensive case witnesses who were on the street at the time experts as is done in many cases. What was your impression of the prosecution's case here against Derek Children? Bronte, who was well presented, and there were some pretty savvy maneuverings that took place in one thing that prosecutors like to do during a trial is start strong and end strong, so they called witnesses that were pretty sympathetic. Well spoken witnesses in the beginning of the case, and they also would time things where if they were breaking for, like Easter weekend, I think it was. They knew they want to finish strong and leave the jury with some powerful evidence over that extended weekend. And so I think they're pretty smart about the way they presented it. I don't think they over tried it. They anticipated a lot of the battle of causation in terms of what was gonna happen with medical examiners and had I think pretty solid witnesses there. But I was just that. I think the case was well litigated all around. I think the judge At an even hand in terms of his rulings. I think the defense did the best they could, with a central bad fact being that 9.5 minutes of neck compression. Jim Trustee, a former Department of Justice attorney Standby wanted T O play a couple of pieces of stone that we have from the closing arguments on I'll Come back to you in just the second this what we're about to hear from his state prosecutor Steve Slickster hey, in during closing arguments, talked about George Floyd and his positioning in The situation he was in with the four officers that were around him, including Derek Show, Vin. Here's what he said in his closing argument. George Flight struggled desperate. Oh, breathe. To make enough room in his chest to breathe, But the force was too much. He was He was trapped, He was trapped with the unyielding pavements. Underneath him as unyielding as the men who held him down. That was Steve Swisher. Pardon me for mispronouncing his name state prosecutor in that case against Derek Children. In the interest of fairness, we turn to the defense attorney Eric Nelson on Bond. One of the key moments in this trial was at one point where there was a question of whether Derrick Showman would testify in this trial. And this was the conversation that Erik Nelson had with Derrick Show Vin when he decided that he would not take the stand. Reasonable police officer understands the intensity of the struggle. I have repeatedly advised you that this is your decision and your decision alone, right? Correct. Have advised you on we have gone back and forth on the matter would be kind of an understatement, right? Yes, it is. But after lengthy meeting last night, we had some further discussion, agreed. Right. And have you made a decision today whether you intend to testify or whether you intend to invoke your Fifth Amendment privilege. I will invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege today. And that was the defense attorney Eric Nelson, and one of the few times in this trial that you heard the actual voice of Derrick Show Vin answering those questions as to whether or not he would testify, And as you heard, he invoked his of Fifth Amendment right. I want to bring back in the gym trustee, Fox News contributor and former Department of Justice attorney Was that a very significant moment when the in your eyes when Derrick Childrens said, I will not take the stand. Significant but not unexpected. I mean, look, this is the wrong case to think that he can testify. And and pull the magic out of the hat. I mean the videotape from various perspectives, people on the street cameras on the police officers. There's too much there and again. I think that's why There's gonna be a conviction. There's just too much from that 9.5 minutes, But they have him trying to explain away very I guess. Callous conduct. You know, there's a video that they showed where he was. Getting is me on the neck and picking a stone out of the treads of the tire. I mean, prosecute that little detail is not lost on the prosecution. They talked about that in closing argument, and it just showed kind of an egotistical response on the street that he didn't want. Either fellow officers or bystanders telling him how to handle Mr Floyd. And to try to explain that on the witness stand would not have gone well, so I think that was absolutely the right decision to keep him off the stand in this case. Jim trustee, speaking with us, the Fox News contributor, former DOJ attorney and we will come back to him in in just a few minutes again. We are a little less than 20 minutes, maybe a little less or so away. From the announcement of the verdict. In this case, the jury has the jury in a separate six situation. Talking about the jury's makeup here. Seven women five men who were not sequestered during the testimony in this trial. But worse sequestered for the one night that it took them overnight to get to this verdict, and I want to go back to Ah Fox News Radio's Jeff Mona's Oh, and There were many people, including the defense attorney who argue that the jury should have been sequestered from very beginning and that was a conversation that the defense pretty had with the judge just yesterday after the jury had been charged, and the jury had been given the case, and that was a pretty significant discussion. Geoff when we talk about sort of the defense Attorneys and how they were feeling about how this case should have been handled from the very start. Yeah, it was one of many emotions for from his trials in this case so yesterday, citing extensive coverage of the case and even comments by Maxine Waters, who said, if they don't get a conviction that Protesters should stay on the streets and be more confrontational..

The now ex police officer committed felony assault that ended Floyd's life while Floyd was defenseless, cuffed on the ground and under show Van's knee He did not follow the department's use of force rules. He did not perform CPR. He knew better. He just didn't do better. He told yours to believe what they saw. Defense Attorney Eric Nelson told the same jurors that his client was acting like any reasonable officer would based on his training and that it isn't reasonable to discount other factors such as drugs or underlying health problems in the cause of Floyd's death.

"Things considered. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro. The murder trial of former police officer Derrick Show. Vin is now in the hands of the jury for three weeks, Lawyers have argued over whether show Vin is responsible for the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis almost 11 months ago. Theater knees delivered their closing arguments today and now the jurors are deliberating. MPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the trial and joins us from Minneapolis. Hi, Adrian. Hi, Ari. Tell us about what happened in court today. Well, we heard two completely opposing views of what happened. Last May, 25th went Derrick show Vin knelt on George Floyd's neck until he died. The prosecution said It was a case of a police officer who betrayed his badge violated policy and murdered Floyd by asphyxiation. The defense said No. The state did not prove its case that Derrick Show Vin did what any reasonable officer would have done to get a struggling suspect under control, and that the state also didn't prove that Floyd died of this fixation. Let's go more deeply into each side's arguments. What the prosecution say. Well. The prosecution's argument was delivered by Steve Swisher, a lawyer who started by describing what George Floyd went through as police officers held him down and Derrick show Vin knelt on his neck. During this time, George Floyd struggled. Desperate to breathe. To make enough room in his chest. Breathe. The force was too much. He was he was trapped. Was trapped. With the unyielding pavement underneath him. As unyielding as the men who held him down. And from there are he moved into an almost to our review of the evidence and why the jury should convict Chauvet of murder and manslaughter. And what were some of the key points in that evidence. Well. He reminded jurors of the testimony from medical experts who all said Floyd died because of a lack of oxygen, not heart disease, Not a drug overdose. Hey, also re kept testimony from police trainers, the Minneapolis police chief. Who all testified against show Vin on. He condemned Derrick Show Vin is a prideful man whose ego kept him from getting off of George Floyd's neck. Even his bystanders were begging him to How can you justify continued force? On this man. When he has no pulse. No pulse. Continued. Restraint, continued grinding and twisting and pushing him down and crushing the very life out of him. It wasn't too late. He could have rolled him over perform CPR. No, he continued. He ended with a plea for the jury to convict on the three counts against You have been saying this This wasn't policing. This was murder. Defendant is guilty of all three counts. Over. And there's no excuse. And then came the defense's closing argument. What did Attorney Eric Nelson say? Well, he was very insistent that Derrick Show oven acted reasonably because of how hard George Floyd had struggled during his arrest. He also told the jury that focusing on Lee on the nine or so minutes that show Vin stay on top of Floyd disregarded the totality of circumstances, including the fact that three officers have been unable to get Floyd under control. Reasonable police officer would in fact take into consideration the previous 16 minutes and 59 seconds. Experience with the subject. Struggle that they had the comparison of the words to actions. It all comes into play. Why, Because human behavior is unpredictable. Human behavior is unpredictable, and nobody knows it better than a police officer. Nelson also spent a lot of time arguing that there were other factors in Floyd's death, including his enlarged heart, his heart disease on his drug use. Person has drugs in their system. And that drug causes an overdose. In the context of the police restraint. It's not the natural consequence of the restraint. It's the natural consequence of the Deceased actions and then Adrian. I understand. Prosecutors have the final word today, and that's right. Prosecutor Gerry Blackwell came back with a rebuttal point by point and ended like this. You were told, for example, that Mr Floyd died because his heart was too big. You heard that testimony. And now having seen all the evidence haven't heard all the evidence. You know the truth. And the truth of the matter is that the reason Joyce Floyd is dead. It's because Mr Sheldon's heart was too small. After that the case went to the jury. MPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you. Thanks. Sorry. Veterans of America's longest active war, are still digesting the news that all troops will be out of Afghanistan by September. 11th President Biden announced the move last week. In recent years, many Afghanistan veterans both both Republicans and Democrats were among the strongest voices calling for the U. S to leave. But as NPR's Quil Lawrence reports, veterans overall have a range of opinions as broad as the country they served. Leaving Afghanistan by September. 11th a neat and tidy 20 years to the day since the conflict began. That does not impress retired colonel Tim Kirk. My first reaction was that's cute will be back soon enough. Kirk thinks. Just like Iraq. The U. S will get dragged back into deal with radical elements in Afghanistan, which, in a nutshell is the national security argument for staying Kirk has more reasons, though he served as a specialist on Afghan language and culture, and he made real friendships there and promises as someone who considers himself a brother toe the Afghan people. We told the Afghans that we were with them shine above Shona, you know, shoulder to shoulder And that's not something you say when you're gonna pull out within your lifetime and leaving now, he says, will almost certainly mean civil war in Afghanistan, much as it was when the US invaded all the blood and sacrifice that we made up until this point is for nothing feels very mixed. SD Lamonica also worked closely with Afghan allies as an intelligence analyst, cried when I first heard the news full disclosure, those were mostly tears of relief, though. Feels to me like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. I never felt like I could start healing until I knew that every troop was gone. Lamonica works with Common defense, a left leaning veterans organization that has pushed end the post 9 11 wars are worked. There is not done, but there is nothing that US troops could do. That we haven't already done and the last 19 years that we've been there. What's been interesting about lobbying to end these wars is that it's not just veterans on the left, who are pushing Afghanistan Veteran Will Ruger was President Donald Trump's nominee to be ambassador to Afghanistan. He credits President Trump's Dojo Agreement for ending the U. S troop presence sticking to the May 1st deal that President Trump had concluded would have allowed us to continue with the casualty free period that we were in since the Dojo agreement, But I do support the president President Biden in this announcement, both Ruger and Esty Lamonica say Biden's decision to pull out wasn't something they took for granted. They intend to keep lobbying until the troops actually do leave. And they agree. It was the mission, not the troops to blame. Will Ruger the troops served honorably and I think did their best. But the fact is is the military is not a tool that's well suited for remaking a society. Polls show a strong majority support, leaving Afghanistan. And on the heels of Biden's announcement, the largest veteran service organization in the country, the American Legion, announced that it's nearly two million members support bringing the troops home.

Sam Whitehead has more on state leaders, vision for the health insurance program for low income and disabled people. The Georgia Department of Community Health issued its strategic plan for the next two years earlier this month. Improving maternal and birth outcomes is a main goal. The agency points out. Georgia ranks behind most states in the U. S. When it comes to maternal mortality rates. The report also lays out a plan to address health disparities by having the agency gather better data on the populations it serves. There is little mention in the report of Governor Brian Kim's plan for a limited Medicaid expansion, which would offer coverage to people who could fulfill a work requirement. It's currently being held up by federal officials, and there's no mention of full Medicaid expansion. Sam Whitehead W.

"Of Derrick Show Vin for the murder of George Floyd. Prosecution rested its case this morning and turn the floor over to the defense. Your honor, the state of Minnesota rest. Thank you. Nelson, are you ready to proceed? Your first witness. NPR's Adrian Florido is in Minneapolis covering this trial and joins us now. Hi, Adrian. Hi. Also, Okay, So I understand the prosecution did not call any more witnesses before resting its case today. Tell us who did the defense called to the stand. Defense attorney Eric Nelson got through six witnesses today. The most important one was the last one. His name was very broad, hey, was a use of force expert and a consultant, and he defended Derrick Show ovens. Use of his need a pin George Floyd down during his arrest. Contradicting most of the prosecution's experts, who said that show oven used excessive force here is broad. Answering a question from show Vin's attorney. Have you formed opinions in this particular case to a reasonable, reasonable degree of professional surgeon I had. Can you just briefly overview your opinions in this particular case? I felt that Derrick show Vin was justified. It was acting with objective reasonableness following Minneapolis Police Department policy and current standards of law enforcement and his interactions with Mr Floyd. Among the points that he argued where the Floyd continue to resisting arrest. Even once he was under show Van's knee and the police officers in his words don't have toe fight fair to get someone under control that they could do whatever it takes. How did the prosecution handle this witness on cross examination? It really spend a lot of time working to poke holes in this witness's testimony point by point, Prosecutor Steve Swisher really spent a lot of time on the fact that Derrick Show Vin kept his knee on George Floyd's neck for a long time, even after Floyd lost consciousness, and that's something that this witness kind of struggled to justify. Listen to this exchange between the prosecutor in the witness. He's not resisting..

Kids didn't they make an announcement a year, or so ago where they said the average watcher. Of, the all, star game is in their, mid fifties, now now that didn't used to be the case. It was, always. Kids, watching. The all-star game. Right, in the average watcher I used to like. Tuna fish and we he. Likes raisin bread and. Sound on. Terry controversial yeah. You, know. I think. That there's just? You know video games. Have taken over my. Kids video games My son video games my daughter she could be doing a million social. Things but I still. Get. A big kick out of the all star? Game it has one of the dumbest rules, in sports which, is which is that you. Have to have a Representative each team you don't. Think. That should be. Telling me that Steve Swisher was not stark Elber, congratulations we have a winner Steve knows exactly, the? Best example of a guy that should not have been the all-star so. There was a year that the cubs didn't have a. Very strong? Team, and you have, to pick somebody at least one Representative. Every team so that your city watches and the city we rallied, behind catcher Steve Swisher yes whose son would play for the White Sox. Swisher. Yes dirty thirty they called him good thing. Has number was thirty do you think though, in the last couple years. They've made it that whichever team wins the, all star game they see that that Lee gets. Home, field advantage, in the World Series x, ridiculous ridiculous, they start doing that no did they stopped doing That. Good because that. Was ridiculous. Thing knows the Seelig. Thing but they said we've had enough of that when I was growing up in was a diehard baseball fan. I mean every day every game I used to hate the all star break why because. Three days baseball and. Now. It's five isn't it Four. But the cubs will actually play so the only game, Thursday will be the cubs. And the carton so everyone else has five days off yeah, yeah unless you're all star right every place Sunday and they don't play again till Friday for me not having a baseball game to watch Sunday. Night yeah yeah but the I think the. All star game is cool and I love these old they were showing the eighty three all star game last year which, was the fiftieth anniversary. You guys non tell you that the first all star game was in Chicago Comiskey at Comiskey in her arch. Ward the guy did was the Tribune sports editor it? Was his idea, and? Then fifty years later. On the exact same day they? Played the fifty hit all star games strange how that worked and it was the, first and only time that there was a grand slam hit in the all star game I'm going to. Tell you who hit it was it was it FREDDY Lynn it was FREDDY. Lynn? How does he do it ladies it was, wasn't it I was. At that game yes I believe he was an angel? At that time, can? I tell you a, weird story about the game I? Was at that game Third base hit the grand my dad's company had I've, I've talked about this in the. Past we were very fortunate. When I was growing up my, dad's company had season. Tickets to both the cubs and the White Sox and we went all the time we, always at cubs games, so for the all star. Game the opportunity was there if, you had season tickets to get a couple of extra, tickets at a reduced rate which my dad did. And I got a ticket my brother also got a. It and as we're walking on our. Way to Comiskey park people are desperate to see this all star. Game so the prices just. Got, higher and higher and higher they're offering us in. At some point I think the highest we heard was? Five hundred dollars per ticket Whoa You know when you're a kid that's like a million dollar did add himself is..
