In Minneapolis, the two cases of black men who died at the hands of police take key turns.
The one that could have repercussions across America is of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd. The defence has now rested and the court is adjourned until closing statements on Monday.
The newer case is of former police officer Kim Potter who is due to appear charged with second degree manslaughter for the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright on Sunday.
Protesters who have been on the streets again say she should face murder charges, while Mr Wright’s family lawyer called it an “intentional, deliberate and unlawful use of force”.
