This is the kind of detailed, reasoned explanation for Floyd’s death that the jury will hear from defense experts. It includes the Power Point slides right out of the Minneapolis Police Department training on when and how to properly kneel on a suspect’s neck.
If I were on the jury, I would be hard pressed to believe beyond a reasonable doubt that all four cops were acting from malice or hatred or racist intent to kill. On the contrary, it looks to me as if they followed the department-approved policy to the letter, exactly as their superior had instructed and trained them to do.
The fact it all went sideways isn’t these cops’ fault. They shouldn’t be the fall guys for it.
Any bets on whether the “Unintentional 2nd Degree Murder” charge gets dismissed before trial?
