Arradondo seems deciding, actually:
“To continue to use that level of force to an individual proned out, handcuffed behind their back, that in no other way shape or kind is anything that is by policy, part of our training and is definitely not part of our principles or worths.”
The defence team claims Floyd died of drug use and pre-existing health conditions and not due to suffocation from Chauvin having knelt on his neck for more than nine minutes.

“Mr George Floyd’s tragic death was not due to a lack of training—the training was there. Chauvin knew what he was doing…what happened to Mr. Floyd was murder.”#DerekChauvin https://t.co/OLWIeJRb3R pic.twitter.com/iAAh7KtCRG
