Chauvin trial: use-of-force defense witness says ‘I felt Derek Chauvin was justified’ – live



Chauvin’s defense lawyers call witnesses after prosecution restsFormer officer charged with second- and third-degree murder
Brooklyn Center officer who killed Daunte Wright and police chief quitDefense faces uphill battle as prosecution undercuts case 8.02pm BST It hasn’t taken long for Chauvin’s attorney to try casting George Floyd as unpredictable drug user whose behavior changed the playing field for appropriate use-of-force. Chauvin’s lawyer, Eric Nelson, has asked use-of-force expert Barry Brodd whether substance use can affect use-of-force requirements. “It has quite a large impact, in my opinion,” Brodd replies. People on drugs might not “be hearing” what officers ask them to do.
7.38pm BST Eric Nelson, Chauvin’s attorney, has called Barry Brodd to testify; he is a former police officer and longtime use-of-force expert. In addition to claiming that Floyd died because of his heart problems and drug use, Nelson has argued that what’s considered “reasonable” use-of-force varies dramatically given the on-the-ground situation. So, it makes sense that he wants a use-of-force expert to say that Chauvin acted correctly. Nelson has contended that the crowd surrounding Floyd’s arrest was aggressive and distracting to officers carrying out the arrest. When asked whether he had formed an opinion about Chauvin’s behavior, Brodd said “I felt that Derek Chauvin was justified” and acted reasonably according to “current standards of law enforcement.”
