    Morning @oceanblueeyes! I don’t know if there had been any other incidents with crowds, but I agree this type of defense theory sounds like what they’re going for. Just seems like an uphill battle b/c so far they’ve just shown some concerned citizens, not an aggressive, violent crowd.

    No cross for McMillan. Makes sense! He didn’t really say anything damaging to defense. In fact he confirmed that GF was not complying etc.

    Smart not to cross examine him.

    Due to very few years of formal schooling, it is possible that the problem is reading the map rather than eyesight - street name printed, name of store printed on the visual.

    He may not have been willing to take a chance and make an error.

    Will the court finish on time or do they try to push back finish time to make up for unplanned breaks?

    This looks damning for Chauvin.

    First time seeing the perspective of Chauvin on that day and hearing his voice.

    Sorry, I misunderstood and thought the first question the defense asked him was about his vision! I guess I need to catch up and actually watch the trial.

    CNN talking heads pointing out that Chauvin's manner when speaking with Mr. McMillan was basically so calm and cool, probably considered unusual demeanor after an incident of this nature.

    We heard Chauvin speak for first time in that video...some words about the size of Floyd.

    Thank you for your reply, Happy!

    Yes, I do think that's what they are going to say whether it works or not.

    NTSY!

    Yes!! I thought the same! So calm and “oh well just another day at the office.” The other officers had the same demeanor from what I saw in the body cam video that was released prior.

    As stated: Chauvin relaxed, calm cool while causing Floyd's death. I suppose these is no chance Chauvin was given drug testing after the killing of Floyd?..... imo only.

    #DerekChauvinTrial - NEW BODY CAM FOOTAGE: McMillian is telling Chauvin he didn't need to put foot/knee on the neck. Chauvin says, "That's one person's opinion. Gotta control this guy because he's a sizable guy. Looks like he's on something."

    Didn't he say he had spoken with Chavin a few days prior to George dying? I may have heard it wrong though, Silly Billy.

    But if so, I wonder if DC was often seen in this neighborhood, and was known to those who lived there? Officers who patrol a certain area are usually known to those who live or work there.

    Actually it seemed to be everyone's opinion, except for the officers.

    The way DC is talking to Mr. McMillian at the scene is like he knows him from the neighborhood.

    Yes, he said that he saw him 5 days earlier and wished him well and be safe (paraphrasing) and to get home to family. He also said he knew him previously from the neighborhood.

    MOO
