The prosecution called 38 witnesses to testify, including experts in the use of force
Minneapolis After a day of final debate, this Monday afternoon, the jury began the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Jowen for the death of George Floyd.
In the final debate in the state, the prosecutor said that Qiaowen kneeled back on Freud’s neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds because he was proud and conceited in front of the witnesses concerned.
“He doesn’t allow those bystanders to tell him what to do. He did what he wanted to do, what he wanted to do, and what he wanted to do as long as he wanted to do it. They were powerless because he was the authority, he had power, and others. Officials and witnesses have no power,” said lawyer Steve Schleicher.
“He tried to win, and George Floyd gave his life.”
In response, defense attorney Eric Nelson stated that Qiao Wen “will serve as the person in charge in this case, and said that there is no evidence that he intentionally or intentionally used force illegally.”
Judge Pete Cahill briefly introduced the law to the jury before and after the conclusion of the debate and removed him from the court after 5 pm Eastern time.
The jury will discuss behind closed doors and will spend the night in the hotel.
During the trial, the prosecution called 38 witnesses to testify, including experts who criticized Chauvin’s use of force and medical experts who explained how Floyd died.
