    Choking a guy with your knee for 9:29 is felony murder nothing less.

    Wow, that lawyer sure is an expert in crisis managment!

    Sounds like they’re trying to blame the witnesses for having objected to someone kneeling on another (handcuffed) person for almost 10 minutes, that’s pretty scummy

      they are, their actual; position is that an ‘angry mob’ distracted the defendant and somehow that contributed to Floyeds death it’s a transparently silly argument though, and it just shows that the defense consul is grasping at straws here

    If crisis intervention dictates that you place your knee on someone’s neck for over 9 mins, then the model for critical intervention training needs to change. It’s not difficult.

  5. Holding your knee on a human beings neck for 9 minutes doesn’t just “look” bad, it is bad.

    So how can a deceased person actively resist.

    The psychosis that Chauvin displayed should have called for a drug test.

      they did a drug test Fentanyl floyd over dosed lol

    • @Franky Rozzello Well, that’s not what the doctor that tried to save him said. Or the autopsy report for thtat matter. I think you have been watching too much fake news, or smocked too much Covfefe

  8. Whar would lawyers do for money and fame? Ask this man. He has no back bone, he is the perfect candidate for such answer.

  9. Since when does ‘distraction’ justify blue genocide?!?!

    So now the bystanders are on trial! 🙄🤨 This defense team just keep blaming everyone but Chauvin. Smh! If Chauvin has any moral within him, he should take full responsibility and stop this show.

  11. Can’t wait to see what goofball witnesses the Defense call. I hear Rudy will say whatever you want for a $50 per diem and a ham sandwich! 🥪

      You don’t even need the cash or a ham sandwich. He’ll take a coupon for Just For Men hair dye and a bottle of gasex

  12. That so called lawyer is a joke

  13. Blaming the witnesses, wow, I wouldn’t hire him for a traffic ticket

    When does Crisis Intervention equal knee on neck of a cuffed individual for 9 minutes??

  15. Kathleen Austin | April 6, 2021 at 1:54 PM | Reply

    The defense is boring and desperate!! He is throwing everything out there he can!
    This was murder!!

  16. Tom Mac——— | April 6, 2021 at 2:06 PM | Reply

    Police action can look really bad. So can watching a murder in real time.

  17. Richard Thomas | April 6, 2021 at 2:23 PM | Reply

    Very true BUT NOT in this case . Nine minutes and twenty nine seconds . FOUR Officers on him ……………. 9 minutes and 29 seconds ……………………….. MURDER

  18. Its not others that are looking, its the victim that is DYING!!! HE IS A DRUNK!!! Chase him out the court room!!!

  19. Q: … and you murdered a man?
    A: Never!

  20. One way to defuse an “escalating tense situation” that’s caused by kneeling on someone’s neck, is to stop kneeling on their neck.
