Recent from CNN:
CNN published this video item, entitled “Chauvin murder trial: Watch the opening arguments (Contains graphic video)” – below is their description.
Former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s head and neck for 4 minutes and 45 seconds as Floyd cried out for help, stayed on his neck as Floyd flailed and had seizures for 53 seconds, and then remained on a non-responsive Floyd for another 3 minutes and 51 seconds, prosecutors said during opening statements in Chauvin’s criminal trial. In response, attorney Eric Nelson sought to establish doubt as to the precise cause of Floyd’s death, saying it was not Chauvin’s knee, but a combination of drug use and preexisting health problems. He also defended Chauvin’s actions as within proper training.
