Chauvin 'trained to stay away from neck — George Floyd death

  • A painting of George Floyd

A day after the Minneapolis police chief appeared on the witness stand, jurors in the trial of former officer Derek Chauvin, charged with murder in the deadly arrest of George Floyd, on Tuesday heard from another police witness about training to deal with crisis situations.

Last June, Mr Arradondo said that Mr Floyd's "tragic death was not due to a lack of training - the training was there".

Mr Chauvin is on trial for murder and has denied the charges against him.

The harrowing footage of Floyd's arrest touched off protests against racial injustice and police brutality in the United States and around the world. The trial is expected to last for at least one month.

Police officers have rarely been convicted - if they are charged at all - for deaths that occur in custody, and the verdict in this trial is being seen as an indication of how the USA legal system will treat such cases in future. "Mr. Hall's testimony in these matters would specifically put him in the position of being in very close proximity to Mr. Floyd, in a vehicle where drugs were found during a search by police following Floyd's death".

No witnesses at the scene were arrested, and several of them have testified that they urged officers to check Mr Floyd's pulse and provide him with medical care.

"It can be easily confused with real breathing, so that's why we teach 'This is not effective breathing, ' " Mackenzie said.

What did the training experts say?

The police chief told the court Mr Chauvin's extended use of restraint was "in no way, shape or form" part of department policy or training, "and it is certainly not part of our ethics or our values".

"We tell officers to stay away from the neck when possible", he said, adding that officers are told to place body weight on a suspect's shoulders when reasonable.

Mr Arradondo agreed and acknowledged that this must also be taken into consideration when officers decide to use force. He asked whether officers need to take the actions of a crowd into account, and Arradondo agreed.

It said Sunday that 2,658 people were now detained or had been sentenced. Security forces continued to spread fear among ordinary citizens.

Kneeling on people's necks is not what officers are taught, Derek Chauvin's former boss told the jury.

Mr Floyd's heart was not beating enough to "sustain life" at any point after his admission to the hospital, Dr Lagenfeld said.

Mr Chauvin's defence team has contended that alleged drug use and an underlying heart condition contributed to Mr Floyd's death.

Arradondo, the city's first Black chief, fired Chauvin and three other officers the day after Floyd's death. Prosecutors said Chauvin continued to kneel on Floyd's neck for 9 minutes, 29 seconds, after he was handcuffed behind his back and lying on his stomach, even though Floyd said 27 times that he could not breathe.

The use of force, as it is known, lies at the heart of the prosecutors' strategy.

Mr Nelson has suggested that onlookers, many of whom were shouting at Chauvin, might have affected officers' response.

Minneapolis police chief Medaria Arradondo testified on Monday that Chauvin violated training policies by kneeling on Floyd's neck after he had stopped resisting.

Chauvin's attorney, Eric Nelson, told Cahill he planned to ask Hall whether he gave Floyd any controlled substances and why Hall left Minnesota immediately after the incident.

Mr Nelson granted that, occasionally, an officer might "look bad" while restraining a suspect, but the officer could still be following the law, and the policies, on the use of force.

Witness testimony and the presentation of evidence will resume shortly after.
