I think putting him on the stand was a good choice. Humanize George, then bring it home with the expert that finishes it pointing out that what DC did was NOT reasonable.Philonese Floyd's stories are heart breaking. You get a very intimate view of George Floyd and his heart. The story of missing his mom's death is so tender.
I heard that an emergency alert went out in Minneapolis area to phones warning of curfew, and I imagine since jurors aren’t sequestered, they saw the same thing. I think it was a huge risk to 1. Not change the venue. 2. Not sequester the jury.
Has the defense witness list been published? I can’t imagine what they’ll present for four days. Maybe the jury will get Friday off?
It’ll blow my mind if Chauvin testifies.
Okay, so I'm new here. Legs wobbly and still getting my bearings. My timing was bad this morning, not realizing how the different threads work (end/close just before court goes into session) and I'd posted something just before the thread closed. I hope it's okay to post the link here, as I was looking forward to connecting with others who might want to explore some of the things that stand out to me about this case thus far). Either way, I'm happy to have found this website and am enjoying reading the information and opinions offered here.
