After the last day of pleading, the jury withdrew on Monday to consider Derek Chavin’s responsibility for the death of African American in his forties. The police will face forty years in prison.
After the last day of the defendant’s death, the defendant George Floyd was withdrawn by the “murdered” police officer’s jury on April 19 to consider Derek Chauvin’s four in the African American. Responsibility in the death at the age of ten. The accusation and defense presented their arguments.
“You must be absolutely fair”, Judge Peter Cahill told them that they invited them to participate “Check the evidence, weigh and apply the law” After this extraordinary trial was over, a review was conducted on a global scale.
The 45-year-old white police officer was tried for murder, manslaughter and intentional violence. He led to the death of George Floyd. He was arrested for misdemeanors along with three other police officers. For more than nine minutes, he kept his knees on his 40-year-old neck, who was lying on his stomach with his hands behind his back. His pain filmed by passersby shocked the world and triggered historic demonstrations against racism and police violence.
“This is a murder case. The defendant was convicted of all three counts. There is no excuse.In the end, prosecutor Steve Schleicher (Steve Schleicher) was sued, and it lasted more than an hour and a half. “This case is exactly what you thought of when you first watched this video”, He says. “George Floyd begs until he can’t speak”, He says.
“It just requires a little sympathy, no one showed up that day”, The prosecutor added, criticizing the police for being indifferent when faced with the confession of victims and passers-by. “The defendant was not tried because he was a police officer” more “What he did was judged”Steve Schleicher emphasized that he thinks Derek Chauvin owns “Betrayed his badge”.
But for his lawyer, Derek Chauvin’s behavior ” reasonable” During the turbulent arrest of the forty-year-old in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020.The prosecution did not provide evidence to the contrary “Except for reasonable suspicion, therefore, Mr. Shavin must be found innocent.”Eric Nelson said after nearly three hours of pleading.
According to him, George Floyd died of heart disease and drug use-fentanyl (an opium) and methamphetamine (a stimulant)- “In context” He said that the police had dismissed him, but this did not lead to his death.
The police are human and make mistakes under stressful situations., He admits, it shows “Helpless” The shouting of bystanders may pose a threat and distract Derek Chauvin from the predicament of George Floyd.
The policeman in casual clothes and blue shirt followed the confession without wearing a mask. He looked attentive and showed no emotion. Derek Chauvin refused to testify and used the rights of any defendant in the United States not to provide evidence that could convict him.
Eric Nelson’s goal is to raise suspicion in the mind of the jury, and the jury must reach a unanimous verdict on each of these three charges. The former police face up to 40 years in prison. Convictions of police for murder are very rare, and jurors tend to give them the benefit of doubt. If the jury cannot reach a consensus on all the charges, the trial will be declared “invalid.”
