    The Los Angeles police sergeant Jody Stiger, a use-of-force expert, told jurors at the trial of former officer Derek Chauvin: ‘My opinion was that the force was excessive,’ referring to Chauvin’s restraint of George Floyd. The Minneapolis police department’s coordinator on the use of force, Lt Johnny Mercil, told jurors the neck restraint applied by Chauvin was unauthorised and that officers were trained to use the least amount of force necessary.
