Recommended Posts

Minneapolis paid out $3million in compensation just a few years earlier  after an arrestee was left in prone position with officers restraining him with weight on his back.

Positional asphyxiation,  they pledged to train officers to avoid doing this

Yes, luckily there was footage, which is the only reason this went to court. Usually, of course, there is no footage, so safe to assume that in the US many black people have/are/will be similarly killed by police and it won't go to court.

That's one huge and not to mention extremely unfair assumption you made there.

All in favour of the prosecution . Very little of the defence . They even had a court reporter telling us what the jury were thinking . I think its on channel 179

Yet research shows if the police encounter black alledged criminals force is used more often and faster than equivalent white ones.

 

 

If Chauvin had took the stand in his own defence that might have helped his cause

Chauvin took the fifth, so the obvious inference is that he couldn't testify without incriminating himself

Yes , he said that when the judge asked him about taking the fifth . Think  it was something to do with even if he was found not guilty of the charges then another trial with other charges could be brought against him .

Bizzare conspiracy nuthousery

You missed the multiple testimonies in the trial from police colleagues confirming that what Chauvin did was not what they are trained to do and not in the training manual.

Yeah but got to give it to me, makes for a great movie..
