    Martin says he did not continue working at Cup Foods because he did not feel safe.

    Nelson now cross examining this witness.

    Nelson asks, “You immediately recognized it as a counterfeit bill?”

    Martin responds, “Correct” and again references the color of the $20 bill.

    So... am I hearing this correctly? The passenger was the one with the fake bills? He tried to pass one beforehand and they denied it?

    This is how a witness has to answer questions on cross!! This is the best witness so far. Very credible.

    Nelson asking about store policy -- that employees who take a counterfeit bill would have to pay for it out of their pocket.

    Martin confirms that was the case. He doesn't remember what time -- but Floyd's friend handed him counterfeit bill earlier in the day.

    Martin specifies when being asked by Nelson about George Floyd's state on drugs -- Martin did not believe Floyd knew it was a phony bill. He thinks GF's friend was scheming and was behind the counterfeit money.

I'm getting the post updated for the timeline now. UPDATE IN RED below. I do hope someone on the jury is doing a timeline as many times, jurors are not allowed to review, and may not be done in closing.
    TIMELINE

    Especially when there are numerous people casually walking by, stopping momentarily then continuing their progress at the same rate of speed. Out of control mobs are like metal filings clinging to a magnet, they attract more and more people.

    Martin identifies the man wearing red sweats, white shirt inside the store was the passenger in George Floyd's vehicle. Martin says he tried to use a fake bill before Floyd, but didn't take it. They're not showing the video, but here's a still.

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ex0jGXyWgAETP7N?format=jpg

    Nelson asks if he accepted the bill b/c Floyd appeared to be under the influence.

    Martin says "partially."

    Martin adds: Partially. The other person that come in, it kind of seemed like he was trying to scheme like he knew it was a fake bill...I thought that George didn't really know that it was a fake bill, so I thought I'd be doing him a favor.

    Nelson asks Martin if he can recall what words George Floyd was struggling to say. Martin says he cannot recall. Nelson started to look for the words in Martin's transcript, but couldn't find it.

    Notice Nelson is asking this witness about his meeting with prosecutors to prepare for his testimony. But he didn’t ask Williams or Hansen that question. He asked about interviews with LE but not prosecutors.

    Coincidence that this witness is so good compared to the others?

    Since you are keeping track of times.. watching this witness since they came back from break and when they were showing the video from the other store when the employees were approaching GF's vehicle, the timestamps confused me, was it wrong on the video? It was showing it was 20:23... so 8:23.
    Sorry, I didn't start watching until after the juror break and want to watch live before I go back to earlier testimony ;)

    Thank you for this. I was thinking yesterday that neither side is doing a particularly good job maintaining a clear timeline.

    Agreed. I think he needs some help. Appeal on the basis of ineffective counsel seems to be possible... MOO

    #DerekChauvinTrial - Martin saw ofc. Thao. He was telling people in the crowd to stay back. "George was motionless, limp and Chauvin seemed very confused and in a resting state....knee on neck."

    Martin said he started recording but he deleted his recording that night. He said he realized Floyd had probably died and he didn't want to show the video to anyone.

    Martin says he stopped working at Cup Foods after this. He didn't feel safe.

    Nelson on cross-exam - Martin says he thought Floyd didn't really know it was a fake bill.

    There's a good Samaritan law that suggests those capable of providing aid to someone in distress could safely provide aid without worrying about legal ramifications after the fact. When the law was introduced I doubt someone thought of a scenario where LE were the ones not only resisting the application of aid but were the originators of the medical emergency.

    I feel for this witness and sad that he left his employment because he doesn’t feel safe. I fear for his safety and any repercussions from his testimony. MOO

    #DerekChauvinTrial - New witness: Christopher Belfrey. He was on the scene.

    Belfrey.jpg


    We know that Christopher Belfrey filmed some of the encounter from inside his car that was parked behind Floyd's car



    Belfrey testifies he saw police go to Floyd's driver's side door. He saw police pull a gun out so he started recording with his phone.

    Belfrey says he quickly left when he heard more sirens because he didn't want to get trapped and not be able to leave.


    #DerekChauvinTrial - Jurors just saw this video Christopher Belfrey took from behind #GeorgeFloyd's vehicle.


    Belfrey shows on this diagram where he moved his car. He said when he parked in the new spot he started recording again.

    interesting that Judge Cahill never gives the normal admonition to the jury before lunch and especially at the end of the day

    And she hung around until after GF was taken away in the ambulance and when MMA guy came up to her and told her what happened. (In the one hour post video in thread, also at media thread) She lost it.

    Of mention that I saw 2 days ago when I first saw the one hour Media Youtube, was that the guy when his passenger seat guy was approached to get out of the car, he took off his hat and what appeared to me were bills fell on the ground. I've never in any videos I've seen has there been a follow up of such. Today, we saw in video that his passenger seat guy did a hand off of what appeared to be paper dollar bills on the surveillance in CUP food.

    Wondering where that guy is now...

    MOO *sits on hands*

    He said he stopped recording and lowered his phone because one of the LEOs was staring at him/watching him record. He was afraid and didn’t want any problems.

    IIRC, wasn't Cup Foods shut down soon after? I can't recall the dates.
