With this foundation in place, it is expected that the prosecutor will now concentrate on proving Chauvin’s actions, and this day should be regarded as murder and manslaughter.This will require analysis by medical experts They will explain the cause of Floyd’s death and the testimony of a police expert who will say that Chauvin used excessive and unnecessary force.
Last week, prosecutor Jerry Blackwell said in his opening speech that he hopes to receive testimony from Arradondo, Hennepin County Medical Inspector and many forensic pathologists.
“When Mr. Freud stopped making any resistance to the officers, they could have ended this restraint,” the sheriff said. Said David Pleoger. “It is reasonable to put your knee on someone’s neck until they stop resisting, but it should stop when they are no longer combative.”
Chauvin, 45, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, third-degree murder and third-degree homicide.
Defense attorney Eric Nelson argued that Floyd (Floyd) died of drug overdose and other pre-existing health problems, and Chauvin’s behavior was part of his police training. Nelson has not disclosed whether Shavin will testify in his defense.
The trial testimony began last Monday and is expected to last about a month.
The doctor says Freud may have died of suffocation
The doctor who treated Freud at the Hennepin County Medical Center in May last year testified on Monday that he believed Freud was most likely to die of asphyxiation.
Emergency medicine doctor Dr. Bradford Langenfeld said that because hospital staff tried to rejuvenate his heart, he failed to rejuvenate his heart. He gave Freud a report on May 25, 2020 ( Floyd) took about 30 minutes of treatment. Langenfeld carefully checked the list of possible causes of Freud’s cardiac arrest and said that the “more likely possibility” was hypoxia or hypoxia.
“Doctor, is there any name that died from lack of oxygen?” Prosecutor Jerry Blackwell asked.
“Suffocation is a commonly understood term,” Langenfeld replied.
Earlier on Monday, Judge Peter Cahill told the jurors from outside the camera’s field of view the allegations of misconduct by the jurors. He ruled that there was no wrongdoing and the jurors were credible.
Feeling guilt and fear in the first week of the trial
Last week, as a series of bystanders and first responders talked about watching Freud’s last breath, pain, trauma, and regret flowed out of the Minneapolis court.
Blackwell said that when Freud called for help, Qiao Wen knelt for 4 minutes and 45 seconds and fainted for 53 seconds due to a seizure, while Freud did not respond for 3 minutes and 51 seconds. When the paramedics signaled him to get out of the car, he loosened Freud’s neck.
Bystanders who watched the event described the horror and inner feelings in the stands. The teenager who filmed a well-known bystander video testified that she lost sleep at night and wanted to know what she could do.
Darnella Frazier said: “This is when I stayed up all night, I have been apologizing to George Floyd because he didn’t do more, didn’t interact physically, and Did not save his life. But this is not what I should do, this is what he should do. Chauvin
When arrested, Frazier and a 9-year-old girl walked to the Cup Foods convenience store.
The girl said: “I’m very sad, a little crazy.” “Because it feels like he is stopping breathing, it’s like hurting him.”
A firefighter who left work on the spot said she tried to help, but the police refused her.
Genevieve Hansen (Genevieve Hansen) said: “I tried calm reasoning, I tried to show confidence, I promise and despair.” “I want to help.”
Christopher Martin, a 19-year-old cashier, suspected that Floyd had handed him a $20 counterfeit bill before the police was called. He expressed regret.
He said: “If I don’t pay the bill, it can be avoided.”
