Set a reminder to watch live on April 6 at 10:15 a.m. ET: Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder trial is continuing its second week. Chauvin, who is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, has pleaded not guilty.
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo took the stand Monday, where he testified Chauvin’s actions violated Minneapolis police policy. Arradondo said Chauvin’s restraint should have stopped once Floyd stopped resisting, and “certainly once he was in distress and trying to verbalize that, [Chauvin] should have stopped.”
Two other members of the department took the stand last week and criticized Chauvin’s use of force. Chauvin’s supervising sergeant said force should have ended as soon as Floyd stopped resisting, and the high-ranking lieutenant who heads the homicide unit called Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck “totally unnecessary” and “just uncalled for.”
