    I'm not 100% certain, but I think that the State may only be allowed to introduce that information of prior acts in order to refute direct testimony from DC that he believed his use of force and failure to turn GF to the recovery position to be reasonable. Perhaps a legal expert can weigh in on that?

    No way is Chauvin taking the stand. MOO this guy has a hot temper and an unusual affect, but I would love to be proven wrong!

    Court TV just replayed Fowler cross where state asked if there was a time after cardiac arrest where he potentially could have been been resuscitated and Fowler agreed...to me that was really an example of State using the witness to bring home their case....I hope he uses that in closing. What an admission by Fowler and to his credit he did not try to "confuse the jury" with any long explanation. There is none.

    I too suspect if he takes the stand (he won't) he would come across as a hothead and very arrogant. Just my own impression of Mr. Chauvin.

    I hope they put him on the stand but I feel like they won’t. I’d like to see him get owned by Schleischer though!!!

    I hope that when this is all said and done no matter what the verdict is, Chauvin at least makes a statement to the family and asks for forgiveness.

    Nelson says he's repeatedly told Chauvin it's his decision and his decision alone. Last night they had further discussion. Asks if he intends to testify. Chauvin decides to invoke his 5th amendment privilege.

    He is not taking the stand. He's invoking his 5th amendment right.

    That was a nail biter. Nelson's questioning of DC was hard to read and I thought for a moment he was going to testify!

    Interesting that there was a lot of private back and forth between DC and his attorney. I know that he wanted to take a plea deal before the trial.
